Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has yet to win a game this season and has yet to beat the Lions since being hired in 2010.

Sunday will hopefully be the day he breaks through. He admitted during his Monday press conference that the vibe going into the Lions game will be slightly altered compared to that of the Eagles and Packers game. Despite what you might hear out there, every game is a must-win regardless if you’re 0-2 or 2-0 right now.

Anyway, Shanahan addressed the media shortly after his son and gave a brief Thursday practice summary.

Coach’s Turn: Kyle Shanahan At The Mic

On Thursday, Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan addressed the media about the first two games as well as a look ahead to the Detroit Lions.

The offense’s down and up performance through the first two games has been a mystery in terms of finding the source of first half struggles. Then in the second half, the enigmatic offense  has righted the ship and lead the charge towards powerful comeback attempts.

What gives?

Shanahan gave some answers this afternoon and it all starts with getting back to the basics—powering through with the league’s No. 1 rushing attack from a year ago.

From College To Pros: Suh Connections

In the weeks leading up to the 2010 NFL Draft, Ndamukong Suh became a certainty for the second overall pick held by the Detroit Lions. The St. Louis Rams were a lock to acquire Heisman winning quarterback Sam Bradford and  Lions head coach Jim Schwartz wanted to make another big splash after nabbing University of Georgia gunslinger Matthew Stafford with the No. 1 overall pick in 2009.

They did just that as the first domino fell as expected to St. Louis and they were able to pick their guy—a 6-4, 307 pound defensive lineman who had just won AP College Player of the Year, was a unanimous All-American and voted as the Bronko Nagurski and Chuck Bednarik awards recipient.

While Sunday will mark only his second career NFL game against the Washington Redskins, he isn’t an unfamiliar face to seven guys on the offensive side of the pigskin that have some sort of connection to Suh from college ball days.

Who are they?

Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett addressed the media this afternoon before the team headed out for another day of practice in preparation for the Detroit Lions.

A lot of questions have surfaced recently about the defense’s disappointing start, but hear straight from the source how the team is formulating a game plan to reverse the trend on Sunday.

Haslett touched on form tackling, containing Calvin Johnson, the rookie defensive backs, stopping the run, his move to the booth and more. Here’s video of the press conference as you finish up your microwavable lunch as well as some quick hits courtesy of the Redskins’ Twitter (@Redskins):

76 Years & Counting? Win Streak Vs. Lions

There are times in sports where events happen that simply can’t be explained and this Redskins fans is one of them.

On Sunday, the Washington Redskins will host the Detroit Lions at home for the 24th time in the series and every single time the teams have played in our Nation’s Capital the Redskins have lived to tell the tale of their heroics in victory.

That’s right–the Washington Redskins haven’t lost a home game to the Lions since Franklin D. Roosevelt was the President, Babe Ruth hit his 714th and final homerun and the cell phone was just being constructed. I’ll let you decide which one of those doesn’t belong. For you non-history buffs the year is 1935.

Anyway, the Redskins have yet to lose to the Motor City cats at FedExField and their roar was always silenced by their fear of RFK Stadium. The last loss came at Fenway Park—yes the famed home of the Boston Red Sox that was once shared with the Redskins.

The losing streak has weighed on the Lions franchise for the last 76 years—star wide receiver Calvin Johnson included.

Johnson spun his rotary dial yesterday with the number for Redskins Park and chatted with the media about the losing streak saying that neither he nor his teammates are concerned with their inability to win in Washington.
