Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is not one who enjoys losing. He’s admitted on several occasions that he was drafted by the three-time Super Bowl winning franchise to expand the trophy case and help the team be a perennial threat beyond the brutal NFC East once again.

While last year’s seven game winning streak to end the season ranks highly in franchise top moments, that is a forgotten period in the player’s minds for now. The only focus is on what the 2013 Washington Redskins can achieve  with augmented expectations.

Griffin III opened his weekly press conference this afternoon fielding a question about the differences between himself and Aaron Rodgers and how his knee feels after first game action since surgery.

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

Mike Shanahan won his first Super Bowl as a head coach of the Denver Broncos during the 1997. In a memorable game against the Green Bay Packers, Shanahan’s Broncos squeaked out a late touchdown to win the game. While Sunday’s game may not have the same level of hype surrounding the big one, it will mean the same amount to Shanahan as he grips his one game at a time mentality again.

Gone is Monday’s unsatisfying loss to the Eagles. Now it’s all about finding a way to beat one of the NFL’s elite in their own house.

Shanahan talked about the differences between Robert Griffin III and Aaron Rodgers, Brandon Meriweather,

Player’s Turn: London Fletcher At The Mic

While the brunt of Monday night’s attention was on quarterback Robert Griffin III and his return from injury, linebacker London Fletcher once again did what he has been doing since 1998—playing in a NFL game.

Fletcher, who is in his 16th season, has seen the highest of highs (a Super Bowl victory) and the lowest lows and while he admitted that the season opener was a frustrating disappointment, he’s lost hundreds of times before and rebounded the next weekend with a victory.

Anyway, the team captain addressed a large media gathering this afternoon and talked about the defense’s preparation for a Green Bay Packers team led by Super Bowl XLV MVP Aaron Rodgers.

Week 2 Fantasy Ranking Roundup

The Washington Redskins are facing a Green Bay defense that—well—had as many holes in it as a block of Swiss cheese last week.

Not only could this be fantastic news for an offense that really started clicking in the second half on Monday night but for your fantasy lineup as well. Through the air, the Packers gave up over 400 yards to the San Francisco 49ers and a three-way balanced rushing attack featuring dual-threat quarterback Colin Kaepernick nearly crossed the century mark.

So what sort of impact does that have on the various Redskins Week 2 fantasy ranking?

Think he was done there? Think again!

Check out this remixed mashup video of Kerrigan the football player/”The Sun”/high heating bill crusher courtesy of Thompson Creek Window Company:

Redskins Historian: Theismann To Top

The Redskins Historian

(Click here for more on Theismann’s gutsy leadership as the Redskins star quarterback)

Joe Theismann wasn’t the biggest quarterback.

Nor did he have a howitzer arm.

But he made up for it with leadership and toughness.

Case in point: In a 1982 game against the New York Giants, he had two teeth knocked out on a sack in the first half, when he also threw four interceptions.

He didn’t fold. What he did was convince himself he would do whatever it took to win.

Going Against Packed Home Advantage

Lambeau Field. It doesn’t need any sort of Google search to know where or what it is. It’s just one of those known football facts.

Since 1957, the Green Bay Packers have called the hallowed grounds, named after team founder Curley Lambeau, home to some memorable games. And how often have you heard of them being low scoring affairs?

Despite being in Wisconsin where snowmen greet children at the bus stop of the first day of school in September, the Packers continually rank among the top offenses in the NFL year after year; rebuilding through the draft when needed. They may not have the flashiest players in the league, but they get the job done when called upon.

Sure some teams used domed stadiums to their advantage such as the New Orleans Saints to bolster their aerial attacks, but at Lambeau—the Packers just win regardless of the weapons they have. And they win with points on the board.

Series History: Redskins-Packers

The Washington Redskins and Green Bay Packers have meet 33 times in the regular season combined.

The Redskins won the teams’ most recent meeting, earning a 16-13 overtime victory against the eventual Super Bowl Champion Packers on Oct. 10, 2010. The teams’ first meeting came on Nov. 13, 1932, as the Boston Braves hosted the Packers at Braves Field. The newly renamed Boston Redskins earned their first win against the Packers a year later, defeating Green Bay, 20-7, at Fenway Park.

Washington took seven of the first eight meetings between the teams following the 1970 AFL-NFL merger, including a 16-3 home divisional round win against the Packers during the Redskins’ 1972 NFC Championship campaign.
