Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan addressed the media this afternoon at Redskins Park less than 24 hours after the franchise dropped to 0-3 for the first time in 12 years.

Marred by controversial calls, the Redskins let the fourth quarter slip through their hands and when the final whistle blew; the Lions escaped Washington, D.C. for the first time as victors.

Each week there’s been a different culprit for the woes and that didn’t change in Week 3 as turnovers inside Lions territory robbed the Redskins of scoreboard changing drives.

Veteran wide receiver Santana Moss, who led the team in receiving with 77 yards, has been a professional for 13 seasons and knows from firsthand experience that losing the turnover battle severely restricts a team’s chances at victory.

“Turnovers are going to kill you every time,” he said. “You can’t expect to lose the turnover battle and win. Whatever team turnovers the most, that’s the team that loses.”

Anyway, here’s all that Shanahan had to say courtesy of the Redskins’ Twitter account (@Redskins):

Monday Morning Rewind And Regroup

The most unexpected start in the 81 year history of the Washington Redskins, the team dropped to 0-3 yesterday falling to the Detroit Lions.

Not only did the Lions win their third straight game in the series, but they got the biggest monkey in their history off their lion-sized back—a 21-game losing streak against the Redskins in Washington, D.C.

The much-maligned defense held the Lions potent offense in check, preventing them from scoring on several drives that appeared all but destined to end with seven more points on the board and limiting running back Joisque Bell to 63 yards on 20 carries. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, who has a rocket launcher for an arm but is occasionally erratic, forced a throw straight into the breadbasket of DeAngelo Hall on the second drive of the game.

He also struggled against the secondary in the red zone, as the unit ratcheted up the intensity and allowed the former No. 1 pick to convert on only 20 percent of his passes deep in Redskins’ territory.

On offense, Alfred Morris once again led the cavalry with 73 rushing yards, 30 of which came on a touchdown scamper in the second quarter. His solid performance was counterbalanced by 300 yards passing from Robert Griffin III for the third straight week, but turnovers and a controversial non-touchdown call did the Redskins in once again.

Sifting through another week of frustration and disappointment, however, there were a few individual bright spots to note (courtesy Redskins Public Relations):

Unlike the first two games of the season where the Washington Redskins had to claw their way back into games with a pass-heavy attack and mount valiant comeback attempts via the arm of quarterback Robert Griffin III, they remained very much alive until the very end of the game.

Unfortunately, it resulted in another loss. While there are no moral victories in football, there were two plays of particular note that captivated the FedExField faithful—the touchdowns.

Up first, is veteran cornerback DeAngelo Hall with a heady play to jump a miscommunicated route. It was his first interception return for a touchdown on the season.
