If you are a football fan, then chances are you’re a fan of Lambeau Field and at some point, hope to catch a game there someday. Lambeau, along with Wrigley Field, Fenway Park and Madison Square Garden, is always on bucket lists of stadiums wanting to be visited at some point in a lifetime.

Lambeau Field gives off a nostalgic feeling and symbolizes football’s beginning—smash mouth football, freezing weather and a simplistic fan experience reminiscent of the 1970’s.

Just like me and you, the Washington Redskins grew up and still are fans of the sport; fully understanding Lambeau’s place in history and the aura that surrounds it on game days. For 60 minutes on Sunday though, the player’s will put their fandom aside and focus on getting the first victory of the season.

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan is 12th all-time with 167 wins; only five back from tying Bill Parcells for the 11th most all-time and only 19 shy from cracking the top 10. But, he’s also lost over 100 games in his career.

Why do I bring this up? While it leaves a bad taste in his mouth, Shanahan palate has experience losing before and, after one week, he’s isn’t anywhere near pushing a panic button. Besides—remember where the Redskins were on November 17th last year? (Hint—nowhere near the playoff race.)

Anyway, after his team broke out quite the sweat this afternoon at Redskins Park and got out of Mother Nature’s way before the storms rolled in, Shanahan addressed the media after his son and discussed the tight end situation, incorporating emulation of the crowd noise of Lambeau Field into practice, Nick Barnett and his role and building the roster through home-grown talent.

Coach’s Turn: Kyle Shanahan At The Mic

Despite struggling to generate very many positives through the first 30 minutes of the season, Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan admitted that he was pleased with how the offense bounced back in the second half behind Robert Griffin III’s career-high in completions (30) and a two touchdown effort from wide receiver Leonard Hankerson.

Running back Alfred Morris, who uncharacteristically fumbled the ball twice in the first quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles, acknowledged that while he’s still disappointed in his Week 1 performance he’s refocusing his efforts on a Green Bay Packers team that gave up 90 rushing yards to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in a losing effort.

Shanahan discussed his thoughts on the two second-year studs, preparations for a Green Bay defense that has one of the best linebackers in the game today in Clay Matthews and how to get playing time for all four tight ends.

Morris, Kerrigan Are Madden’s Next Gen

For you Madden diehards out there that demand answers to weekly ratings updates this one is for you—and well as you’ll soon find out—you’ll be getting the answers from your own right hand.

A few weeks back, Redskins Blog presented the fact that you, the fans, now directly impact player ratings in Madden 25. Each week after destroying your opponent with the same PA Y-Dragon Wheel play 16 times in a row, you can head over to NFL.com and rank the top 25 quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, tight ends and defenses each week. But that isn’t all that you can help decide.

Since being hired as head coach in 2010, every single one of Mike Shanahan’s first round picks have gotten a Pro Bowl nod and like the running back whisperer he’s known to be (it’s on his official business card), exposed diamond in the rough gem Alfred Morris in the sixth round last year.

Speaking of Morris, he and teammate Ryan Kerrigan are part of the newly minted “Next Gen” team, which only seems fitting considering that next generation consoles are hitting stores in the coming months.  But what exactly does that mean for the two?

Coach’s Turn: Jim Haslett At The Mic

Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett addressed the media this afternoon as the team was getting ready to partake in an unusually hot mid-September day in preparations for the Green Bay Packers.

While Green Bay’s offensive line has been much maligned over the past few seasons, the Packers have still ranked in the top 10 in points per game in each of the last six seasons.

In Monday Night’s game, the Redskins started rookies David Amerson and Bacarri Rambo. The duo combined for 14 tackles, one sack and a pass defensed, but for a second straight week, they will be challenged by a talented receiving core and led by a Pro Bowl quarterback.

Haslett, who transitioned to the box in hopes of having a better angle of sight on the action, touched on his unit’s progress for first half to second in the Eagles game, Brandon Meriweather,playing against Aaron Rodgers, gameplanning against and improved run game and more.

Griffin III’s Path Compared to Rodgers’

Posted by Stephen Czarda on September 12, 2013 – 10:17 am

It doesn’t matter how you got there as long as you are there, and for both Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers they’ve made it. Their paths to stardom however, drastically differ.

Unlike Griffin III’s rookie season in which his arm and legs captured the heart of a fanbase en route to 4,000 combined yards and an NFC East title, Rodgers had to sit for his first three seasons in the NFL, sprinkling in an occasional spot appearance here and there when the Packers were partaking in a squash match (and they were on both sides of the shellacking).

You know what was in front of Griffin III before he was drafted—a longer string of frustrating quarterback cameos than that that would make up the Incredible Hulk’s pants. After Mark Rypien’s departure following the 1993 season 18 different quarterbacks attempted to uphold the prestige of being the Redskins starting quarterback. 18 struggled under the pressure and succumbed.

During that same stretch, only Brett Favre, Rodgers and Matt Flynn (two starts) took the field as the starting quarterback for the Packers.

On Wednesday, Griffin III and Rodgers talked about their opposing paths to the NFL and the mutual respect they have for one another.

Son Of Washington Gallery: WAS-PHI

On Monday, the Washington Redskins hosted their first home regular season game at FedExField since last year’s do-or-die 28-18 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. While the Redskins endured a frustrating first quarter to pull the game within six with minutes left, their valiant effort came up just short.

Through it all, Son of Washington’s Evan Redmon was there to snap every memorable moment from an unforgettable Monday night prime time affair. He got some really great shots from pregame all the way to Leonard Hankerson’s second touchown making it a ballgame.

Here’s a gallery of what he saw through his camera lens:
