Chris Cooley’s Sleepless Radio Transition

What happens when you cross a tight end that spent a lifetime of fall weekends physically applying himself to be the best player and teammate that he could be with his current job as a radio broadcaster?

A whole lot of sheep being counted while lying in bed.

For nine years Chris Cooley spent a living breaking down game film in hopes of finding holes in opposing defense,  and boy would he.

While he may be doing the same now for ESPN980, he isn’t speaking on a microphone through a helmet nor is he walking on the freshly waxed floors inside the radio booth at FedExField with football cleats on.

Cooley admitted this morning on “Monday Morning Redskins Roundup” with Chris Russell that he struggled catching Z’s last night after his first regular season game as a radio broadcaster.

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on September 10, 2013 – 3:11 pm

(AP Image)

For the first time since being hired as the head coach of the Washington Redskins, Mike Shanahan enters Week 2 without a one etched in the win column.

Last night was Shanahan’s fifth season opening loss and the first since 2006 when his then Denver Broncos lost to the St. Louis Rams 18-10. While the frustration of a loss to a division rival that won only four games last season was tough to swallow, there are still 15 more games on the schedule and the slate has been whipped clean once again.

The focus now shifts to a Green Bay Packers squad that is jam-packed with offensive weapons and a defense that boasts a Pro Bowl level linebacking corps. Last week however, the defense gave up an unprecedented 579 yards of offense to the 49ers.

Anyway, Shanahan took a brief break for masterminding his Week 2 gameplan to chat with the media about his team’s Week 1 performance along with the abovementioned Packers game.

Here’s all that he had to say starting with addressing a disappointing first quarter last night:

Week 1 Power Rankings Roundup

Posted by Stephen Czarda on September 10, 2013 – 12:38 pm

(AP Image)

Due to the fantastic play of Robert Griffin III and an improbable seven-game winning streak to end the season last year, the Washington Redskins entered 2013 with heightened expectations.

This was reflected in their power ranking across several national outlets, as the team floated somewhere in the 10-12 range during preseason installments and having some predict that they were even deserving of a top three spot.

Unfortunately as expected, the Redskins fell down the charts in the power rankings this week after a tough 33-27 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Despite showing some resiliency and fighting off a 26 point deficit, the reality is there are no moral victories in power rankings. At the end of the day all that matters is whether or not you win, and on this particular week the Redskins did not.

Hopefully the Redskins can win their 15th game against the Green Bay Packers this Sunday at legendary Lambeau Field in Wisconsin.

Anyway, here is where the Redskins stand in this week’s various power rankings:

Tuesday Morning Rewind And Regroup

Posted by Stephen Czarda on September 10, 2013 – 12:10 pm

While yesterday did not go according to plan by any stretch of the imagination, there are still 15 regular season games left to be played and as we saw last year, unpredictability runs rampant in the National Football League.

Robert Griffin III, who saw his first game action exactly eight months to the day after knee surgery to repair torn ligaments in his knee, symbolized the ebb and flow the Redskins encountered on the evening. In the first half, Griffin III threw two interceptions—the first multi interception game of his young NFL career. The second half was a completely different outcome though, as he found Leonard Hankerson all alone in the end zone for a pair of fourth quarter touchdowns.

The second-year pro, who was voted an offensive captain by his teammates, admitted that the game was disappointing but refused to formulate excuses as the reasoning for the loss. Instead, he reflected on the fact that a lot of events that the Redskins usually don’t get involved in happened.

“We had a serious case of the ‘can’t-get-rights,’ just penalties, hurting ourselves – you know, I don’t throw picks, [running back] Alfred [Morris] doesn’t fumble and [kicker] Kai [Forbath] doesn’t miss field goals and all three of those happened tonight. So we’ll get better, no doubt.”

He also refuted the belief that rust played a factor in his performance stating that that’s just an excuse to hid behind and that he’s responsible for his play.

Having said all of this, there were a few individual performance of note yesterday:

Week 1 Highlights: Redskins-Eagles

Posted by Stephen Czarda on September 10, 2013 – 9:06 am

Last night’s bitter 33-27 season opening loss to the Philadelphia Eagles was the classic tale of two halves. While the burgundy and gold controlled parts of the third quarter and majority of the fourth quarter, the valiant effort came up just short of miraculous.

Robert Griffin III really started to get in a grove in his first game since knee surgery late in the game, connecting with third-year wide receiver Leonard Hankerson for two fourth quarter touchdowns. On Hankerson’s part, he once again showed flashes of being that go-to-guy in clutch situations.

Anyway, here are some of the highlights from last night starting with DeAngelo Hall’s fourth career fumble return for a touchdown.

EXCLUSIVE: Robert Griffin III Interview

Eight months to the day that he had major knee surgery to repair a torn ACL and LCL, quarterback Robert Griffin III is active and will start tonight against the division rival Philadelphia Eagles.

The concoction of countless hours of rehabilitation, gallons of sweat lost in the gym and a constant resolve that no matter how many people doubted that he’d be ready for the season opener,led him to the position he was in last night—playing the game that he grew up loving.

Griffin III saw the millions of get well soon tweets directed his way from Redskins fans over the last eight months and wanted to take time out of his busy schedule to thank them for their support.

So without further ado here was the last interview Griffin III did before stepping onto the field last night with none other than Larry Michael, Voice of the Washington Redskins:
