Things are always that much better when coming off a win.

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan addressed the media this afternoon noticeably freer than he was this time 72 hours ago at his last presser in Ashburn.

With the monkey of a confusing three-game losing streak off of his back, Shanahan praised his team’s effort but noted that one win needs to be the first building block in a recovery bounce in the march to playoff contention, not a solitary moment of success in a trying season.

“Same message we’ve had throughout the year, trying to get better each week, each practice.”

Despite winning the first game of the season, this week’s early bye gives the team extra opportunity to go back and see how they can right the wrongs and extend on their given confidence from yesterday.

YOU PICK: Who Was Week 4 MVR(edskin)?

It’s that time of the week where you the fans can vote on who YOU thought was MVR(edskin) from yesterday’s 24-14 victory.

Collectively, the Redskins played sound football for 60 minutes, only turning the ball over once, reducing their penalty yardage to 25 and keeping the Raiders offense at bay—pun intended I suppose.

However, there were a few individual performances that stood out to include Ryan Kerrigan, Barry Cofield and David Amerson on the defensive side of the pigskin along with Pierre Garcon’s consistent day for the offense.

Before you just go clicking on through like this is an ‘I accept’ portion, here’s a quick review of what each of the MVR(edskin) candidates yesterday:

Twitterized Reaction To First Victory

With frustration’s brew reaching levels not expected, the Washington Redskins had what some called a desperation, must-win, win or go home type of game against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

They came home last night—with the season’s first W.

Crickets were louder than the typing on their smartphone keyboards through the first three week as—well—there was no typing. No tweets, no Facebook updates. Nothing.

The players just like the fans, were disappointed with how the season had played out up to yesterday.

Having high expectations snatched from them in their own house was hard enough, but a disheartening loss at Lambeau and letting the Lions taste the sweet taste of victory in the Nation’s Capital for the first time ever soured the Redskins 2013 season.

With a win in hand the players took to social media to enjoy the victory, but also admitted refusal at satisfaction with just one in the win column.

Let’s start with linebacker Ryan Kerrigan who’s had a monstrous start to the season with five sacks–fourth highest total in the NFL.

Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

In a more balanced attack, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III had his most consistent performance through the first quarter of the season.

Self-admittedly he’s not where he wants to be just yet, but with a win under the belt and another week of rest to prep himself for the stretch run starting with a return to Texas, he’s confident that he and his teammates can put the first three weeks of the season behind them and move forward with more confidence.

With the monkey of a disappointing losing streak off their backs now, they can get themselves fully rested and focus in on archrival Dallas Cowboys—all while tweaking techniques and plays to eliminate mistakes that have plagued through the four-game stretch.

Griffin III addressed the media yesterday and talked about the team’s collective performance both offensively and defensively along with what the Bye Week will mean to his body physically.

Mike Shanahan Proud Of Team’s Fight

Down 14-0 it seemed like déjà vu all over again and just like the players had said during interviews, there’s no pinpointable culprit behind the early woes.

The first week it was the defense, the second was the offense and last week it was turnovers and costly penalties. Two drives into Week 4 and it was the special teams unit who allowed Raiders running back Rashad Jennings to burst through the middle of the line and block Sav Rocca’s punt only to be recovered in the end zone for a touchdown.

Then, early in the second quarter they made it 14-0 on a Mychal Rivera touchdown reception. It was a fork in the road moment for the 2013 Redskins. The team could have packed it in and thrown in the white flag effectively admitting early defeat on the young season or get off the snide and fight back.

End result—Redskins win 24-14.

Head coach Mike Shanahan addressed the media shortly after the first victory of the season and said he was pleased with the way his team fought back.

Highlights Week 4: Redskins-Raiders

The Washington Redskins played their most complete game of football on Sunday and stormed back from a 14-0 hole to score 24 unanswered points for the victory.

It only seems fitting that the team got a victory after playing their best football of the season. They won the turnover battle, kept laundry inside the zebras’ pockets and the much-scrutinized defense held the Raider to under 300 total yards.

Anyway, let’s start this week’s highlight post with David Amerson’s first interception and pick-six of his career.
