Help Reed Doughty Raise Kidney Disease Awareness

Pickled Hogs Radio had Reed Doughty on our most recent show and we addressed many things including the lockout, his pending free agency, the Redskins defense and his charity work with the National Kidney Foundation.

Reed is the Honorary Chairman of the Northern Virginia Kidney Walk on Sunday April 3 in Reston, VA. Please visit the Team Reed Doughty page to donate, sign up to walk with Reed’s team and for more event details. Reed has set what I feel is a modest goal of $1,000 to raise for this event. I have contributed a small amount to kick start his fundraising efforts, please do the same if you’re able to do so. I know that the strong fan base of the Redskins can join together to help Reed achieve his goal.

Towards the end of the show Reed requested to speak directly to the fans to address the CBA/lockout situation, here’s what he had to say:

I’d like to say one more thing to the fans. That we just appreciate all the fan support and know that no fan is winning in this battle between (players/NFL) and there’s not going to be a winner in the media as well. You know I was at Bible study this morning talking to a couple of people who had lost their jobs and I understand there’s a real sense of the economy and people that are really down on their luck. So we just appreciate the fans for support and we know that there’s a lot of people worse off than us. You know, and I just want to say we appreciate all those people that support us and hopefully we can get this thing turned around.

Reed has been a Redskin for 5 seasons now and I’ve always appreciated how he plays the game. He plays with heart and leaves eveything on the field, he’s also a class-act off the field. Reed’s also a pending free agent who may not be back with the burgundy and gold. I hope that’s not the case and we haven’t seen the last of #37.

Once again, please support Reed with a donation or by joining him on the NOVA Kidney Walk on April 3.

Cheers and Hail

Happy Bday Monte Coleman & Reed Doughty


Happy birthday Monte Coleman. Monte played 16 seasons for the Redskins, covering 3 different decades from 1979-94’! Monte ranks among the Redskins all time leaders in games played, sacks, fumble recoveries and tackles. He is a 3 time Super Bowl Champion who played 215 games as a Redskin, 2nd to Darrell Green. He his a member of the 70 Greatest Redskins…have I mentioned he did all this after being drafted in the 11th round! Monte was an inspirational leader on the field and one of my all time favorite Redskins. I also remember Monte as being an avid fisherman who owned a fishing supply store in Chantilly back in the day. It’s no surprise to learn that in addition to making a living as a motivational speaker, Monte has stayed in the game of football. Monte is currently the Head Coach at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. Happy 52nd Mr. Coleman!

Happy birthday Reed Doughty. Reed is currently playing his 4th season as a safety for the Washington Redskins. It’s fitting to me that he’s born on the same day as Monte Coleman, they are cut from the same cloth…if the Redskins had 53 Reed Doughtys’ and Monte Colemans’ they would never lose a game. Reed was drafted by the Redskins despite not playing Division I college football, he did however have 4.0 GPA in college…and it shows on the football field. Reed has won and lost the starting FS job several times over the past few years. He became the starter after Sean Taylor’s death…and played well early in 08’ before a back injury ended his season. The Redskins would later cut him, only to bring him back before the 09’ season. After starting 09’ on the bench, Reed has since won the starting job back. Reed also plays with a severe hearing impairment…you cannot keep this man down! I heart him. Happy 27th Mr. Doughty.

Cheers and Hail
