Focus On RGIII: Stories Bears Following

Due to obvious parameters, Washington, D.C. is one of the biggest media markets in the country. The Redskins are not excluded from this. On any given day, you’ll see a large conglomerate of beat reporters from various media outlets, camera crews scattered throughout practice and the locker room and television personalities giving on-site updates dissecting every word of a Mike Shanahan press conference.

Of the few markets that can compete with the sheer manpower, numbers and interest of the D.C. area is Chicago. With perennial championship contenders and one cast of lovable losers, Chicago’s six professional sports teams generate more than enough interesting storylines to follow. None more dramatic and closely followed than the Bears.

Super Bowl XX champs, the Bears’ 2012 season was a complete reversal of the Redskins. Starting off the season hot, the Bears cooled off drastically during the second half of the season and their destiny was sealed with a 3-5 record to end the season. So far this season, they’ve replicated the hot start, but will they be able to finish against a team they lost to 17-14 in 2010?

Here are some storylines Chicago media is following with 48 hours until first kick:

Josh Wilson Claims DeMatha

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 18, 2013 – 12:41 pm

In a five-second window, cornerback Josh Wilson told 19.6 million people about being a product of a place.

The player introductions on NBC’s Sunday Night Football were never that serious. Some players state their college. Some get creative. Texans safety Ed Reed this year said, “I was born to do this.”

Wilson’s avatar appeared on screen last Sunday and gave a shout out to DeMatha Catholic High School  in Hyattsville, Md. He wasn’t being cute.

Wilson lost his father before he made it to DeMatha. He wanted to respect the men that picked up the slack and tolerated an honor student missing classes on tough days to ask them questions.

Bill McGregor, who coached football for a quarter century at DeMatha, former defensive backs coach Bryce Bevill and track and field coach Anthony Bryant all put their stamp on Wilson.

“Those guys changed my life, made me become a man, made me understand that hard work was what was going to get me to this level that I’m at now,” Wilson said.

DeMatha has had a major impact on my life.”

Rypien On Bold Prediction, RGIII, Redskins

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 18, 2013 – 11:26 am

Capture

It’s no mystery the Washington Redskins have fallen below high expectations to start the season. If being selected as NFC East Champions in various NFL preview publications wasn’t enough, they were top-10 in power rankings, fresh off a 4-0 preseason and successful training camp and, of course, are defending the division crown for the first time in 13 years.

Then something unexpected happened—they lost four of their first five games and at times, especially in the first half against the Eagles and Packers, looked far from the team the registered seven-straight victories to end 2012.

It’s early, but that excuse will soon fade away as the Redskins get into the meat of their schedule. Having said that, major progress was shown last week against the Cowboys.

Former Redskins quarterback and Super Bowl XXVI MVP Mark Rypien joined fellow Redskins legend and former teammate Brian Mitchell on the set of Sports Talk Live to talk current Redskins and how they’ll replicate 1987’s Super Bowl-winning team’s result.

Intermingled Paths Finally Meet Head-On

At first glance, the Chicago Bears hiring of Marc Trestman was one of the more—interesting—hires of the last decade.

I can’t tell you how many times I heard someone say ‘Who is that?’, and once telling them he was most recently the head coach of the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League I got even more befuddle looks. ‘They hired a CFL coach…really?’

What they didn’t realize was his roots in the NFL were first planted in 1985. Starting as the running backs coach of the Minnesota Vikings, Trestman’s held nine different positions in the league including stints as the offensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns (1989), San Francisco 49ers (1995-1996), Arizona Cardinals (1998-2000) and the Oakland Raiders (2001-2003).

Trestman’s path to one of the most historic NFL franchises may differ from Shanahan’s, but after years of meeting and greeting, they’ll meet for the first time Sunday as rival head coaches.

Shanahan Reflects on Marshall

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 18, 2013 – 7:00 am

Mike Shanahan, Brandon Marshall

Mike Shanahan knew he had a steal when a perennial All-Pro came to him with a question.

In 2006, when Washington’s Executive Vice President and Head Coach was leading the Denver Broncos, cornerback Champ Bailey grabbed his coach after practice to ask about a 6-foot-4 wide receiver the Broncos nabbed in the fourth round.

Brandon Marshall was already making an impression.

As the Redskins prepare to face a Bears’ battery of Shanahan draftees in quarterback Jay Cutler and All-Pro receiver Marshall, Shanahan answered questions about Marshall’s talent using Bailey’s early impressions.

“Champ Bailey came up to me after the first minicamp we had and he said, ‘What did this guy do? How come he lasted to the fourth round?’ That was after the first day of one-on-one,” Shanahan said in a Thursday Press Conference. “(Bailey) said, ‘he had to have done something bad, because there’s no way this guy could last until the fourth round.’”

So why did Marshall drop so far?
