Washington, D.C., native Stephanie Brigance ran 10 yards, cut outside and looked back for a pass from a two-time Super Bowl champion.

Wearing a burgundy No. 9 Sonny Jurgensen jersey, Brigance put both hands on the ball and completed the catch from Redskins alumnus Gary Clark.

Football drills with Clark and fellow alumnus Ravin Caldwelll were just one element of Monday night’s “Ladies Night Out” for the Women of Washington at Redskins Park.

Brigance’s catch provided a moment she’ll “never forget.”

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 28, 2013 – 3:12 pm

Shanahan

On Monday, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan addressed the media following Sunday’s disappointing fourth quarter collapse.

Starting slow, the Redskins hit their stride just before halftime. The defense held the potent Peyton Manning in check after an opening drive touchdown, the special teams unit neutralized returner Trindon Holliday and the offense constructed its greatest drive under the Mike Shanahan Era with a methodical, clock eating 16-play drive that ended with Leonard Hankerson’s third touchdown of the season.

Entering the locker room to a chorus of boos, the Redskins had the Broncos on the ropes. With a one-two combo of Alfred Morris and DeAngelo Hall, the Redskins’ looked like they finally turned the page and were going to upset the Broncos in their own house.

…Then the fourth quarter happened.

Here are quick hits from his press conference courtesy of the Redskins’ Twitter (@Redskins):

What Went Right: Redskins Broncos

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 28, 2013 – 12:13 pm

Don’t be a sourpuss. Pretend you fell asleep in your recliner at the end of the third quarter last night and missed the fourth quarter.

As harsh as the 45-21 loss turned out to be, let’s take a moment to appreciate what went right in Denver.

Highlight: Alfred Morris’ 27-yard run gives Washington room to operate

What went right: Darrel Young leads the way. Denver brings five men to the line of scrimmage, using Von Miller to set the edge. Logan Paulsen gets to Miller’s outside shoulder, and Young chips him to clear the way for Morris. Aldrick Robinson blocks Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie up the field, then releases him to put a block on the safety. Kory Lichtensteiger quickly bumps Trent Williams off the double team, allowing the tackle to seal off the middle linebacker. Young is one-on-one with Rodgers-Cromartie in the hole, leaving Morris to follow his fullback for a big chunk of yardage.

Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

If the 2013 Washington Redskins season had a chapter in the franchise encyclopedia it should simply be titled ‘Ebb and Flow.’

Just seven days after it seemed everything was finally in place to start another late season run, the Redskins let a 21-7 slip away within the matter of minutes en route to one of the most prolific regular season, single quarter showings in NFL history.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III, fresh off a game where he nearly had 400 total yards, struggled to move the chains against the Broncos. Continually seeing pressure from Denver’s front seven, Griffin III’s jersey by the end of the game was far too dirty. It didn’t help that there was disconnection with his receiving corps as well.

When the guys did get separation, they either struggled to haul in a routine catch or Griffin III was off target like he was on the throw to Joshua Morgan in the fourth quarter.

After the game, Griffin III spoke of the frustration of dropping to 2-5.

“It’s very frustrating,” Griffin III said. “They say all the time it’s a cliché in this league is that your record says who you are and I just don’t believe we’re a 2-5 football team. We prove it at times when we can get big leads and play with really good teams like the Broncos are and we just let it get out of hand.”

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

On Sunday, the Washington Redskins suffered a bitter defeat to the hands of the Denver Broncos. Whether it was shot in the own foot or the Broncos showing their muscle, the loss was one of the hardest to deal with emotionally in quite some time.

Going toe-to-toe with one of the NFL’s heavyweights things were going great for the Redskins through three quarters. The defense was bending against Peyton Manning, allowing him to connect on almost all of his throws, but were far from breaking like a majority of defenses the future Hall of Famer faces.

An opening drive touchdown and it was almost like ‘Uh-oh this can’t be happening again’ but the defense both settled and clamped down not allowing a touchdown for the rest of the first half.

Outside of a 16 play, 95-yard drive to end the second quarter, the offense struggled mightily throughout the game. Robert Griffin III had a season-low performance, the wide receivers couldn’t disconnect from the cornerbacks long enough and when they did they dropped it and the running game was once again abandoned after a solid performance.

After his first game in Denver in five years, head coach Mike Shanahan addressed the media about a disappointing finish.
