Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

Going into today’s game, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III knew that this would be, perhaps, his biggest test of the year. Playing at Lambeau Field is never easy but add to that the fact that the Packers were having a homecoming of sorts for their alumni, it was their season opener and conditions were reminiscent of last year’s Steeler game, and you had a storm of difficult proportions to overcome.

While the Redskins came out empty-handed once again, the offense started clicking in the second half. The next chance at putting together four effective quarters will come next Sunday against the Detroit Lions.

In the meantime, Griffin III addressed the media following today’s 18-point loss and said he will never play the blame game and will work harder than ever to get the team its first win of the season next weekend:

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan addressed the media following a disappointing 38-20 loss in which his squad once again had to play catch-up in the second half.

While his team showed improvement from Monday night’s bitter defeat, the reality is that a loss is a loss and they have yet to win a game this season.

Anyway, here is coach Shanahan in his own words at Lambeau Field:

4th Quarter Ending: Redskins-Packers

Posted by Stephen Czarda on September 15, 2013 – 3:29 pm

The second half got off to similar bad footing for the Redskins offense, as the first two drives did not result in any points and John Potter missed his first NFL field goal attempt from 50 yards out. The defense also struggled and has been unable to keep the Packers out of the end zone, as Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson connected once again for a touchdown and James Starks became the Packers first 100-yard rusher since 2010 after a 32-yard touchdown scamper.

The offense continues to disappoint, as high expectations haveyet to be reached and at times, the same unit that was so fluid last year looks off-balance. They started reemerging once again in the middle of the third quarter, though, as Robert Griffin III orchestrated an 83-yard drive that resulted in Pierre Garcon’s first touchdown of the 2013 campaign.

Here are some key plays from the final quarter:

3rd Quarter Thoughts: Redskins-Packers

Posted by Stephen Czarda on September 15, 2013 – 2:36 pm

Once again the Washington Redskins endured a frustrating first half and entered the locker room down, this time 24-0. Early on it appeared that despite the fact that Aaron Rodgers had his troops moving, the defense could at least contain the potent offense as Ryan Kerrigan made his name known to Packers faithful with back-to-back sacks on 2nd and goal and 3rd and goal.

The offense will have to take a similar approach to last week in the second half, resorting to a pass heavy attack and hoping it not only results in a few touchdowns, but opens things up for the running game. Alfred Morris, who had a 32-yard run on the Redskins’ fifth drive of the game, has looked better today, but he has yet to cross the goal line. The other problem the unit has struggled to crack the code on has been third downs, going 0-for-5.

On a bright side, there are still 30 minutes to be had and there have been bigger comebacks mounted before.

Here are some highlights from the third quarter:

2nd Quarter Summary: Redskins-Packers

Posted by Stephen Czarda on September 15, 2013 – 1:43 pm

Despite moving the ball down the field quickly, the Packers first drive of the game was stonewalled by the one and only Ryan Kerrigan, who recorded back-to-back sacks on 2nd and goal and 3rd and goal. What looked like an assured touchdown drive turned into a measly three points. Then on the next possession Brian Orakpo got in on the act, taking down Aaron Rodgers a la flashes of the 2010 matchup. Unfortunately, a fourth down conversion on their third drive meant the Packers jumped out to a 10-point lead.

On the offensive side of the pigskin, the Redskins have gotten out of the gates slow once again. Besides an opening 14-yard connection between Robert Griffin III and Leonard Hankerson, gains have been short. The soggy conditions are giving the Redskins high-octane offense fits. But they are starting the quarter in Packers territory.

Here are some highlights from the quarter:

1st Quarter Happenings: Redskins-Packers

Well we are off to a soggy start this afternoon at Lambeau Field as the rain has been coming down by the bucket load all morning long.

What sort of impact will this have on the game? Will the offense be predicated once again on Alfred Morris due to the less than ideal conditions or will they opening it up like they did in the second half against the Eagles and test Mother Nature?

The Packers won the opening kickoff and elected to receive. Here comes John Potter to start the game–and his Redskins debut kicks off with a touchback.

Play started with the Packers driving, but after two Ryan Kerrigan sacks they had to settle for a field goal.

He’s back! And with as much demand for his season debut as Robert Griffin III last week.

After a short Hawaiian vacation, the Washington Redskins signed kicker John Potter on Saturday after it became known that Kai Forbath has been battling a groin injury. Just a few minutes ago it was announced that Forbath will be inactive today meaning Potter will make his Redskins debut this afternoon.

Who is John Potter besides a familiar face to Richmonders?

Check out this highlight video of Mr. Potter putting a pounding on the pigskin:

It’s Never Too Early For Football Weather

(From 2011, but it's been raining like this all morning)

(From 2011, but it’s been raining like this all morning)

Now this—this is football weather!

You can’t go to rural Wisconsin, home to the awe-inspiring Lambeau Field, and have bright blue skies and 70-plus degree weather. That just wouldn’t be right. It’d be like having hot chocolate during your summer beach vacation.

If you are waking up this morning DMV and pulling your curtains open to see Mother Nature has provided another day full of luscious sunrays, just remember that somewhere is getting the opposite end of the stick. That somewhere is Green Bay.

Anyway, here’s a complete game day forecast courtesy of Accuweather.com:
