Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

In Week 7 of the 2010 season, the Washington Redskins faced a Chicago Bears team entering the game with a 4-2 record.

If you’re thinking ‘Wow that sounds familiar’–well that’s because it is. This weekend will be the seventh week of the 2013 season and the Bears are coming to FedExField with the exact same record.

In 2010, the Bears were handed their third loss of the season as the Redskins recorded, perhaps, their most balanced performance of the season, a 17-14 victory. Running back Ryan Torain ran for 125 yards on the ground, Santana Moss and Chris Cooley combined for 115 receiving yards and DeAngelo Hall outmanned all Bears receiver en route to a career- and franchise-high four interceptions.

Fast forward to this Sunday and the Redskins hope to get off the schneid with a victory over a Bears team leading the NFC Central. It’ll take a complete team effort–something that has eluded the Redskins so far this season.

Coach’s Turn: Kyle Shanahan At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 17, 2013 – 3:13 pm

As rain approached Redskins Park once again, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan rushed to the podium (inside the building) faster than his offense did to the line of scrimmage during the first drive Sunday against the Cowboys.

Along with a brief appearance against the Raiders in Week 4, the no-huddle has proven effective when used. Darting down the field, the Redskins speed can’t be matched. The problem is, and it’s not just during a hurried offense, drives have ended in three instead of seven points.

The bye proved clear worth to quarterback Robert Griffin III as neither the knee brace nor the Cowboys D-line could stop him from taking off and showing that quick we all know and love. Now, the offense needs to put together a complete performance: rushing, passing, blocking and time management.

Anyway, Shanahan spoke about Griffin III, Fred Davis’ presence in certain packages, his thoughts of defenses using a spy and more.

Throwback Thursday: Green Touchdown

There are certain plays that define a player’s career. Sometimes those plays go under-the-radar and you never hear a word about them from the media such as an offensive lineman laying a key block that sets up “70 Chip” or a special teams ace pinning back his ears and bedeviling a speedy return man for a negative return.

For others such as quarterback Robert Griffin III and Hall of Fame cornerback Darrell Green, each week seems/seemed to produce yet another iconic play or moment that will live on in franchise lore for eternity.

25 years ago in an NFC Divisional Game against the Chicago Bears, Green’s already growing status officially reached legendary with one punt return.

A Day At Work With Daddy

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 17, 2013 – 12:42 pm

bowen front

Stephen Bowen gets to savor fatherhood on days like last Monday. As part of a family photo shoot for an upcoming issue of Capitol File magazine, Bowen, wife Tiffany, four year-old Trinity and two year-old Stephen posed for a photo shoot in the practice bubble.

As sweet as it was to see his children amazed by his workplace, the tragedy of the child not present sticks with Bowen.

Young Stephen was born premature at 24 weeks along with a twin. Stephen survived heart surgery as an infant, but his brother Skyler Bowen never made it home. Monday’s photo shoot was part of a piece to promote the Bowens’ Cause.

Coach’s Turn: Jim Haslett At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 17, 2013 – 12:18 pm

Capture

Lost in all of the talk about Robert Griffin III’s mobility and the special team’s frustrating effort against the Cowboys was how well the defense played.

Much-maligned through the first month of the season after leaving a lot to be desired, the defense had its best performance to date.  Yes Tony Romo is who he is, but game-planning for a quarterback fresh off a 506-yard effort isn’t easy. When confidence is high, anything can happen.

The defense was able to bring him back down to earth, applying constant pressure and not letting his running game do much of anything after the first drive.

Moving forward to this weekend, the Bears are built in similar mold to the Cowboys. A Jekyll and Hyde quarterback with an elite wide receiver and a tight end that is familiar with playing against the burgundy and gold. Now with an offensive-minded head coach in town, winds of offensive disappointment have blown out of town.

Anyway, defensive coordinator Jim Haslett started his weekly press conference fielding a question about the team’s determination for improvement.

Week 7 Redskins Fantasy Roundup

The Washington Redskins locker room has continued to remained calm, not allowing the emotions of a 1-4 start get the best of them. You on the other hand sir/ma’am Fantasy Football Coach are probably freaking out right now if you’re in a similar situation in your league.

Easy on the nail-biting, too.

Anyway, the offense is facing a tough task straight in the face on Sunday. Off by a few inches against the Cowboys resulted in incompletions. Off by a few inches against the Bears and interceptions will become the name of the game.

With Seahawks-Cardinals kicking off in a few hours, check out this week’s fantasy football rankings/projections roundup. As for my opponent this weekend, you can skip everything below.

A Passing History Against Bears

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 17, 2013 – 10:06 am

The Washington Redskins have the firepower in the artillery to subdue Chicago’s opportunistic defense.  The question that remains heading into Sunday though is will they be able to show off their shiny weapons for intended purposes–scoring touchdowns.

Against Dallas, the offense appeared to have the Cowboy D’s number once again, especially on the first drive when the no-huddle attack prevented them from recovering their legs during a 40-second break. But as that drive did and two drives after, the offense stalled inside the 20-yard line, settling for Kai Forbath field goals opposed to a touchdown of some variety.

Despite the deserved reputation as one of the best, the Bears defense has given up at least 20 points in 10 of their last 11 regular season games dating back to Week 13 of the 2012 season.

This week’s Redskins.com poll asks you how you think the Redskins will score their first touchdown of the day on Sunday. Before heading over to the poll, check out the Redskins’ previous scoring history against the Bears.

Some things just might surprise you.
