Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

Around the locker room and in the press conference room, the resounding sentiment is disappointment for the early 0-3 start.

Despite turning over the ball just 14 times last season, Mike Shanahan’s club has already given up the ball six times on the young season. While there is never a good time to turn the ball over, the team has either coughed it up deep in opponent territory or near it’s own end zone.

Shanahan addressed the issue this afternoon along with execution, Aldrick Robinson’s incompletion, Robert Griffin III’s sliding and more.

Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

Quarterback Robert Griffin III addressed the media shortly after the Redskins’ third comeback attempt in as many weeks fell short, this time 27-20.

While Griffin III did indeed throw for 300 yards once again and showed more mobility than he did during the first two weeks, he had an uncharacteristic three fumbles and a costly interception deep in Lions territory.

Just as his teammates said in the locker room, they had too many costly turnovers that negatively affected the score in the long run.

Fourth Quarter Conclusions: #DETvsWAS

For the first time all season, the Washington Redskins entered the final 15 minutes of play not playing catch up.

Despite back-to-back touchdowns to end the first quarter and open up play in the second, the defense has remained stout. While allowing Calvin Johnson to rack up a few catches, they completely shut him down on three straight occasions when the Lions were in “for goal” situations. They’ve also been able to rattle Matthew Stafford’s cage as he’s been slightly off for the majority of the afternoon.

While the offense remained fairly quite in the third quarter (only the first drive proved fruitiful with a John Potter field goal), they started the quarter with possession.

Here are some key plays from the fourth quarter:

Third Quarter Thoughts: #DETvsWAS

Halfway through the third game of the 2013 season and the Redskins enter the lockeroom down once again, but unlike the first two games the game is still very much alive.

Just like any game, there were some things that you love to see and others that you wished never happened. Take running back Alfred Morris for example. After the worst outing of his career in  the season opener with only 45 yards and two fumbles, No. 46 has rumbled his way to 56 first half rushing yards, highlighted by a see it to believe it, 30-yard touchdown. On defense, DeAngelo Hall, Ryan Kerrigan and London Fletcher have led the way.

On the first play of the game, Fletcher wrapped up Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and threw him to the turf for his first sack of the season.  Then, Hall intercepted a bad Stafford pass for an interception and subsequent touchdown. If that isn’t an instant get in your head moment then I don’t know what is. On a Lions second quarter drive that only needed one yard to move the chains, Kerrigan stuffed veteran tight end Tony Scheffler in the backfield, forcing a punt.

Robert Griffin III has looked up to form today, connected on 14 passes for 120 yards, but he forced a pass on a scramble deep in Lions territory that was intercepted. Let’s see how he and the rest of the offense look in the second half.

Second Quarter Summary: #DETvsWAS

Not to be outdone by his offensive teammates, cornerback DeAngelo Hall once again opened scoring at FedExField, this time intercepting an errant Matthew Stafford. It was his 40th career interception. On the next drive, however, the Redskins were plagued by missed tackles and untimely penalties and gave up a rushing touchdown to Joique Bell.

The offense moved the ball effectively on their first drive of the game through a strong rushing attack (to include a Robert Griffin III seven-yard gain that got a roaring applause of approval from FedExField) but the drive stalled on an incompletion on third down.  The second drive, ended on a three and out.

The second quarter started out with the Lions inside the Redskins’ five.

Here’s complete play-by-play of the second quarter:

First Quarter Happenings: #DETvsWAS

Despite only being the third week of the season, today’s game between the Washington Redskins (0-2) and the Detroit Lions (1-1) at FedExField has a lot on the line.

A win along with a few other NFC East teams losing and the Redskins will be tied for the division lead. Lose and the trench dug after a shocking opening week loss followed by a disappointing result in famed Lambeau Field will only get deeper.

Having said that there’s no better place to turn things around than at home in front of an always raucous Redskins crowd.

The defense looked much more solid on the first drive, holding the Lions to seven plays and inside their own territory. Then on the first play of the second drive, DeAngelo Hall picked up business with his second touchdown of the season, this time via interception.

Anyway, here’s how the rest of the first quarter unraveled:

If you’re outside of the stadium tailgating your face off as Ryan Kerrigan would say or if you’re just waking up on this beautiful Sunday morning and can’t see all that’s happening in the stadium, don’t fret.

We’re here for you.

Under gorgeous skies the First Ladies of Football are the first to get their pregame warm-ups in.

If you had told me that there’d be bright blue skies this morning and not a single cloud in the sky, I’d blink twice.

After all when I went to bed last night making sure I’d get a good night sleep so I can bring you the best content this afternoon, it was raining cats and dogs. Weird.

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