Mrs. Shanahan On Redskins’ Return Game

Posted by Brian Tinsman on November 30, 2012 – 6:38 pm

Brandon Banks

Win, lose or draw, head coach Mike Shanahan understands the most basic principle of life in the NFL: everyone is an expert.  Especially in the age of fantasy football, Madden video games and instant replay, fans have taken their two cents to a whole new level.

So it should come as no surprise that Shanahan can’t escape the Monday morning quarterbacks, even in his own house.  And I’ll give you a hint–it’s not coming from Kyle. Read more »

Griffin III’s Awards Help Community, Too

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 30, 2012 – 5:19 pm

Robert Griffin III says he won’t reflect on his record-setting rookie campaign until after the season, but when his awards directly benefit the community, you can bet the Redskins quarterback will appreciate that fact immediately.

That was the case today, when Griffin III was named the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week, an award that comes with a $2,000 donation in each of the winning players’ names to their local offices of Junior Achievement.

It’s the second time Griffin III has won FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week award, so that means he’s sent $4,000 to the Washington, D.C., Junior Achievement office just based on his top-notch performances.

The FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week distinction was the third award Griffin III has won this week alone. Read more »

Coordinators: To Booth Or Not To Booth?

Posted by Brian Tinsman on November 29, 2012 – 6:36 pm

Former full-time blogger Brian Tinsman took a break from the straight-laced world of Redskins.com to share a few thoughts on FOX analyst Brian Billick’s recent interview with Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. The topic: should coordinators be on the field or in the booth? For the answer, keep scrolling.

To the untrained eye, the average NFL sideline looks like a chaotic intersection of players, coaches, officials, trainers, photographers, videographers and security. Throw in the melee of a game, the pressure of a play clock and the roar of 90,000 fans, and it’s amazing that any coach can focus long enough to dictate a game plan.

For those coaches that cannot brave the elements, there is a coaching booth in the upper decks of the stadium designed to give coaches a bird’s eye view of the action, an extra look at instant replay, and a little bit more elbow room on the sidelines.

Six Redskins coaches sit in the booth during the average game: quarterbacks coach Matt LaFleur, assistant defensive backs coach Richard Hightower, offensive line assistant Chris Morgan, offensive assistants Richmond Flowers and Mike McDaniel, and defensive assistant Bobby Slowik.  On the plus side, these coaches watch the game in a temperature controlled environment, with the perks of catering and bathroom facilities.  The bad news is they have to run to the elevators at halftime in order to be present in the locker room, making schedules tight at crunch time.

One coach that doesn’t have that issue is offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, who has spent exactly one game in the booth during his nine-year NFL coaching career.  He told NFL analyst Brian Billick that he much prefers being on the field where he can be close to the action–just not too close.

Morris: ‘I Have A Whole Lot Of Heart’

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 29, 2012 – 5:56 pm

By now, we all know what a great find rookie running back Alfred Morris has been for the Washington Redskins.

With 18 yards on Monday night against the New York Giants, he’ll become only the second Redskins rookie to rush for 1,000 yards in a season.

Morris — who is a nominee this week for Pepsi Max NFL Rookie of the Week — was a guest today on the NFL Network’s “Around The League” (see full video below), and was asked about what the casual NFL fan might not know about him.

“I believe in myself,” Morris said. “My work ethic is ridiculous. Me, just as a person, I know what I’m capable of doing. I chose the path less traveled. Not many people could have chose the path to go to [Florida Atlantic] and be able to come into the NFL and do what I’ve done. Nothing I’ve ever gotten on my path was given — I’ve earned everything. And I know how to go out there and earn it, set goals and attain my goals. Just my sheer work ethic and my heart — you can’t measure a man’s heart, and I have a whole lot of heart.”

Morris was also asked if he expected to contribute immediately when he was drafted by the Redskins in April:

Kerrigan On Large Ducks, Movie Armrests

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 29, 2012 – 5:20 pm

Ryan Kerrigan says he’s more of a “numbers guy” and would rather fight one horse-sized duck than 100 duck-sized horses.

OK, I swear we haven’t completely lost it. This was just one of the many awesome questions Kerrigan addressed today in his reddit AMA (“ask me anything”) interview.

The Redskins became the first NFL team to partner with reddit for these AMAs, which will continue each Thursday for the remainder of the season. Kerrigan’s AMA today kicked the series off.

As it turns out, reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian is a huge Redskins fan.

“So many NFL teams — and television series, brands, and political campaigns — have active subreddits that they’re not tapping into,” Ohanian said. “The subreddits are created and maintained by super devoted fans — by engaging the subreddits, the teams could be directly connecting with some of their biggest advocates and evangelists.”

Here’s a recap of some of the better (OK, more off-the-wall) AMA questions for Kerrigan today with his answers:
