Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

The Washington Redskins first preseason game was eventful to say the least.

What started with a Kirk Cousins touchdown and ended with a beautifully executed two-point conversion from Pat White, the Redskins offense looked solid at times but were also plagued by penalties and drops.

The defense struggled at times in the beginning, but made up for it when it counted the most as they forced the Titans to punt the ball on their last drive, even though they were down by one point.

Obviously I could talk all night about how the game went considering my adrenaline pumping strong right about now, but lets hear what head coach Mike Shanahan had to say courtesy of the Redskins’ Twitter account (@Redskins).

The Redskins have shown flashes of perfection at times and others–well this is the first football game since January. After Rex Grossman spent a good chunk of the first quarter, all of the second and part of the third quarter in, Pat White made his debut and boy was it a memorable one.

His late game drive and two-point conversion led the Redskins to a come from behind 22-21 victory!

Here’s some highlights of the fourth quarter:

WASH-TENN: Third Quarter Thoughts

Seeing as this is the first preseason game of the year and Nashville’s looking more like Seattle thanks to rainy conditions all day, the second half will give way to some of the lesser known players who are fighting for only a handful of roster spots.

After winning the opening coin toss and electing to receive, it was the Titans offense who took the field first in the third quarter.

Here’s how the rest of the quarter went:

WASH-TENN: Second Quarter Summary

The first quarter was an up and down affair as Kirk Cousins really shined especially on the second drive that resulted in a touchdown and even showed some fluidness in play action, but the defense struggled. Two rushing touchdowns to include a 58 yarder to Chris Johnson wasn’t in the plans.

After a three and out to start the quarter, things started clicking again just under the two-minute warning as Leonard Hankerson records a very athletic touchdown reception.

Here are some key plays from the quarter:

WASH-TENN: First Quarter Happenings

Finally! Washington Redskins football is back after being away for way too long. 195 days too long to be exact.

Even though Robert Griffin III, Alfred Morris Trent Williams and Pierre Garcon aren’t playing tonight, quarterback Kirk Cousins is going to lead the troops out to start.

On the flip side, after months of anticipation David Amerson, Phillip Thomas and Bacarri Rambo are finally wearing something other than burgundy practice shorts. I asked you guys earlier today which rookie you wanted to see most tonight and over 50 percent said who else–Rambo. So I’ll be sure to follow his performance a little closer tonight.

After successfully calling heads during the coin toss, the  visiting Redskins elected to receive where Niles Paul returned the opening kick to the 19 yard line.

Here’s some key plays for during the first quarter:

Road To 53 Runs Through Nashville

While there might be some out there that consider the preseason meaningless throwaway games, they do serve a purpose.

For the younger guys that are scraping for a spot on the final 53-man roster, it’s a chance for them to shine against someone other than their teammates. Take Alfred Morris’ transcendence to the starting lineup last season as example.

In his three preseason appearances, Morris recorded 39 carries for 195 yards and a touchdown against the Indianapolis Colts. If the preseason didn’t exist, Morris may have never had the chance to see the field let alone break the franchise’s single season rushing record.

As far as end of game result—well no one likes losing but at the end of the day, it doesn’t have any impact on playoff standing whatsoever. Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak, however, told the media during his press conference on Tuesday, he wants to win preseason games starting with the Redskins.

Just because the team isn’t in Richmond right now doesn’t mean we’d just kick our daily Quick Byte segment to the curb!

Redskins.com’s Brian Tinsman braved the rainy conditions outside of LP Field (yes I know the picture above shows bright skies, but its the best picture I could find) and has the lowdown on all things Redskins tonight ranging from the amount of snaps quarterback Kirk Cousins will take to the extremely anticipated debut of rookie safety Bacarri Rambo.

“From the East Coast to the West Coast to the North to the South.”

That’s how far Redskins Nation extends. It’s also the lengths legendary Rev Redskin went to tell y’all that the Washington Redskins were going to do great things last year.

Never discredit the man—ever.

Anyway, just as he has been doing for years, Rev Redskins is back and believing once again. While this video is from his first Richmond training camp experience, what better time to unravel it than right before the first game of the year?

Excitement For Rookies Entering Big Show

When the Washington Redskins made their first public comments about the $36 million cap penalty levied against them the day before free agency started in March, it really dampened the usually festive spirit around here during the signing period.

$18 million in one season is a lot of money, even for an NFL franchise. As head coach Mike Shanahan said during his joint press conference with general manager Bruce Allen, that money could have be used on six to eight top level guys.

That’s when plan B came out—build through savvy draft selections.

Three ball hawks, two change-of-pace backs, a linebacker who was at one point a top 10 pick and an extremely versatile tight end. Do I need say anymore?

With that in mind after you’ve hopefully fully acquainted yourself with all 17 rookies, we want to ask you who you’re most looking forward to playing both tonight and the rest of the preseason:

Better Pack A Rain Coat, Or Two, Tonight

Tonight’s traditional coin flip to decide who gets to receive the pigskin first won’t be the only 50-50 tossup tonight.

I’m not sure why Mother Nature has dumped endless amounts of rain during training camp, but it appears she may do the same tonight in Nashville.

Not cool.

At current check, there is a 50 percent chance that showers and/or thunderstorms will linger of LP Field during kickoff.

Here’s the complete lowdown of game time conditions courtesy of Weather.com.
