The festival of frights is upon us. Tonight, a cavalcade of incognito adults and children take the streets in search of a sugar-fueled bacchanalia.

In honor of October 31, I solicited the Redskins for some of their favorite Halloween stories of costumes, mischief and gluttony.

I did find some highlights, starting with Niles Paul, who had probably the best and the worst Halloween stories of anyone who talked to me.

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

In 31 career games against the San Diego Chargers as a head coach, Mike Shanahan is 20-11 with his last game in charge of the Denver Broncos coming against 10-time AFC West champs.

You know what that means for Sunday’s crucial matchup? Absolutely nothing.

It’s a Chargers team far from what he faced in the mid-2000’s and of course he’s not in blue and orange anymore. After another full day of practice, film study and team meetings, Shanahan addressed the media and gave updates on practice participation, skinny field goal posts for Kai Forbath, thoughts on Santana Moss and more.

Coach’s Turn: Kyle Shanahan At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 31, 2013 – 3:31 pm

If you were to just look at the Redskins offense on paper, you’d think they were having a pretty fantastic year so far. They rank seventh in total yards (394.4), fifth in first downs per game (22.9) and tenth in scoring (24.7 points per game).

But then there’s the reality, an offense that really hasn’t performed very well under mammoth expectations far exceeding anything seen around here in years.

As Robert Griffin III said best in his press conference yesterday, “To me, stats and rankings and stuff like that, it doesn’t always really tell the true story in my opinion. We’ve struggled at times. We’ve been really great at times. Against Chicago, we threw the ball extremely well and ran the ball efficiently and this past week, we didn’t do that. It’s a week-to-week thing; we just need to be more consistent with it.”

Consistency starts with setting a tone in the first quarter. Outscored by 47 in the opening frame, the Redskins have to abandoned their forte, a notice trend that frustrates fans.

Anyway, Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan spoke to the media this afternoon.

Gallery: Iconic Images From 1987 Season

“I could beat you with one hand tied behind my back.”

Well he didn’t have his hand around his back nor was it deprived of free range of motion, but remember that time Darrell Green proved he was the by far the NFL Fastest Man when he returned a punt 52 yards for a game-winning touchdown?

Or when a group of replacement players played so well that they’d later have Hollywood wanting to tell their story?

1987 was a great year for the Washington Redskins, capped off with a second Super Bowl victory in five years.

From the quarterback carousel to the dismantling of the Broncos in the Super Bowl XXII, the Redskins will welcome back the 1987 squad this weekend in a special halftime ceremony.

For this week’s Throwback Thursday post here are some select images from that season:

Coach’s Turn: Jim Haslett At The Mic

Through the first three weeks of the season, not a whole lot went right for the defense.

They struggled against the Philadelphia Eagles in Chip Kelly’s NFL debut, couldn’t stop Aaron Rodgers from doing whatever he wanted and failed to hold off the Lions in the closing minutes of a back and forth contest.

With Brandon Meriweather back though, the defense will be at full strength for only the third time this season. Jarvis Jenkins and Rob Jackson of course were out the first month of the seasons serving mandated suspensions.

The defense has been fueled by the efforts of DeAngelo Hall, playing perhaps the best football of his career, and he could be lined up against Antonio Gates.

“He has the ability to do anything,” defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said this afternoon. “We put him on big receivers; we put him on quick, faster receivers so he has the ability to do anything.”

When They Score At Least 24 Vs. SD..

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 31, 2013 – 11:45 am

…They win.

They may not have Ron Burgundy in their starting lineup but the San Diego Chargers have a plethora of talent that entertains Southern California and gives Champ Kind enough excitement to do his evening sports segment for the Channel 4 News Team.

The Chargers are one of the last teams that come to collective mind of Redskins Nation. With homes over 2,500 miles apart and play against one another happening only once every four years, it’s easy to see why.

But as series history indicates this matchup is all about the streaks.

Dating back to the first meeting in 1973, the Redskins won the first six matchups before San Diego’s 30-3 win in 2001 started a three-game winning streak that still stands.

With Redskins-Chargers on the horizon, this week’s featured Redskins.com poll is asking you how many points YOU think the burgundy and gold will score against the Bolts.

Even the scoring has some fascinating streaks to follow.

18plays2

“I’m excited about this. Nobody is, and I don’t look at it as a quarterback controversy. I look at as you got two good ones.”

-Joe Gibbs

In Part Two of “18 Plays: The Super Bowl 22 Champions, Gibbs and other Redskins look back on the quarterback controversy between Doug Williams and Jay Schroeder and the unifying effect of the players’ strike.

Here are a few of my favorite moments.

Week 9 Redskins Fantasy Roundup

Sunday’s homecoming matinee against the San Diego Chargers could feature a whole lotta scoring.  Both teams enter Week 9 averaging 24 points per game.

You know best fantasy owner that it’s been impossible to predict what the offense is going to do this season. At times when everything is clicking the offense looks better than it did last season. And then there’s everything else.

If you were that lucky owner to either draft Alfred Morris or pick up Jordan Reed off the waiver wire then congratulations to you. Morris continues to churn out yards and Reed has been a top free agent acquisition, owned in nearly every league now.

Reed’s eminent rise is even more noteworthy considering his viability as a top fantasy option. Pretty impressive for a rookie who played quarterback at the start of his college career and had to play catch up after missing parts of offseason activities recovery from injury.

Anyway, here’s this week’s fantasy roundup before tonight’s Cincy Bengals-Miami Dolphins matchup:
