Outside linebacker Rob Jackson has no interest in the most popular video game of all time.

To the media, Jackson has been one of the most popular players in the locker room in his first week back from a four-game suspension. With all the added attention piling onto an already exciting week getting back to practice, Jackson said his top priority away from football is relaxation.

So he plays PlayStation 3. But instead of living a virtual life of crime, Jackson said he would rather simulate the gridiron.

‘The Ball Flies Pretty Well’ in Dallas

Kickers are like algebra nerds. They like to remove variables.

According to Mike Shanahan, the Redskins expect Kai Forbath back from a right groin injury on Sunday night at Dallas.

Forbath said AT&T Field, where a closed roof and artificial turf provide consistent conditions for his feet, is the perfect venue for his return. The absence of wind, mud, or rain is a plus, but Forbath said the he has mojo he can’t explain at the stadium, which he saw as a member of the Cowboys in the 2011 preseason.

“In my experience, the ball flies pretty well (there),” he said.

Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

Last season there was no place like Dallas for University of Baylor product Robert Griffin III.

Despite holding opponents to under 28 points from Weeks 8-11, the Dallas secondary looked lost, confused and downright befuddled by the duel-threat quarterback.

Perhaps they served a little too much turkey into their pregame Thanksgiving meal because they looked like they slipped into a Tryptophan induced coma every time they took the field. During the span of 19 second quarter plays, the Redskins torched Dallas for 28 points. By the final whistle, the Redskins scored 38 points behind four Griffin III touchdown passes.

Fresh and rested after thoroughly enjoying his mandatory time out of camera light during the bye week, Griffin III addressed the media this afternoon on what it will take to walk out of the Lone Star State with a victory.

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

Whether it was the offense making their defense look like a bunch of college kids or the defense forcing Tony Romo into an unsurprising late interception, the Washington Redskins controlled the Dallas Cowboys like a puppet last season.

With the NFC East title on the line, the Redskins had their way with Dallas behind the wheels of Alfred Morris. Morris, who would cap of his record-breaking season with a 200-yard, three touchdown performance, fit head coach Mike Shanahan’s zone-running attack perfectly then and he still does now.

Getting back to the basics (i.e.: running the ball through all four quarters) and controlling their own destiny is the name of the game this weekend.

Shanahan addressed the news-hungry, give yourself a pat on the back for making it through the bye week media contingent this afternoon about Sunday night’s game.

Redskins Twitter (@Redskins) was there with a Redskins Nike pullover on, braving the chilly elements to give some updates on how everything went.

Charley Casserly: ‘Give Ball To Morris’

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 9, 2013 – 12:19 pm

Alfred Morris, Eric Frampton

There are “experts” and then there is Charley Casserly.

Unlike his talking head counterparts, Casserly knows a thing or two just about everything in talent evaluation and what it takes to build a winner. So when he talks we listen.

The former general manger and disciple of Hall of Fame head coach George Allen chatted with the guys on “Inside the Locker Room” yesterday on ESPN 980 about the Redskins-Cowboys rivalry and what it will take to defeat Jerry’s boys.

The revamped 2014 Pro Bowl added another wrinkle Tuesday.

In addition to seeing the AFC and NFC mix rosters with a schoolyard draft composing teams picked by the two top vote getters, the NFL has abandoned the standard blue and red motifs.

Instead, Nike has provided futuristic threads highlighted by day-glo yellow and orange. As only the athletic apparel company can, Nike makes pants and jerseys sound like stealth jets.

Rivals since the beginning, the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys will meet for the 107th time on Sunday.

The Redskins won the first ever meeting between the two franchises on October 9th, 1960 26-14. While it may have been the only win of the season, it’s always that much better to know it came against Dallas. Led by quarterback Ralph Gugliemi, the Redskins offense scored in every quarter. The constant attack was too much for the Cowboys inept offense.

Last seeing each other on Sunday Night Football in Week 17 last season, the hated rivalry was officially renewed due to legendary performances by rookies Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris.
