Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has played in 23 NFL games since being selected with the second overall pick in last year’s draft.

Despite his nascent NFL career he has experience more than most 10-year veterans.

With cameras following his every step, a magical 76-yard that has already been added to the fabric of historical moments, winning multiple awards, leading a team that was left for dead by most “experts” and performing after major knee surgery with a championship craved city on his back, it’s fair to say he isn’t living the “typical” NFL life and his resume extends far past his draft classmates.

But after Sunday’s fourth quarter breakdown, he tasted something he’ll never want again—bitter defeat.

A self-admitted frustrating game, Griffin III chatted with a larger media continent about both the past and this weekend’s Chargers showdown.

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

No one wants to leave homecoming on the losing end especially in that fashion.

Closing another chapter on Redskins-Broncos, the team opened preparation focused on the San Diego Chargers today.

The Chargers were a perennial power in the decade following the turn of the century. Behind a three-headed attack of Phillip Rivers, Antonio Gates and LaDanian Tomlinson, the Bolts had all the necessary firepower and entertainment value that Southern California is best known for.

But without a Super Bowl ring to show for their regular season accolades, the Chargers restructured some of their foundation. Now with Mike McCoy in town the Chargers have been injected with a youthful spirit that has gotten the best out of the four-time Pro Bowl Rivers.

Head coach Mike Shanahan addressed his concerns with the Chargers offense, his offense, provided an injury update and much more.

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

Series History: Redskins – Chargers

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 30, 2013 – 1:56 pm

Kellen Winslow, Tony Peters

We’re going streaking!

No, not like that. Leave the quad to Frank the Tank.

The nine game series history between the Redskins and the Chargers is composed of two streaks. Washington won the first six meetings between 1973 and 1998, and San Diego won the last three contests dating back to 2001.

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 30, 2013 – 11:09 am

2014-pro_bowl-voting_begins2

It feels like just yesterday we were at training camp enjoy the new digs in Richmond and treated to a very welcoming, always packed crowd that’s what I have been told the definition of Southern hospitality.

But with scary ghost stories and way too many Miley Cyrus look-alikes floating around over the past few days it means only one thing—Pro Bowl voting season!

Check out the Pro Bowl ballot now open at the Redskins Fan Zone Page.

Voter beware though, the Pro Bowl isn’t offering what it used to.

Week 9 Matchup: TD Advantage D-Hall

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 30, 2013 – 10:27 am

Yesterday I did the Redskins Weekly Stat Ranking Update and despite the myriad of problems the Redskins face continually on Sundays is the fact that DeAngelo Hall leading the league in defensive touchdowns gained some positive traction.

In juxtaposition of great individual effort and a season marred by mistakes, Hall was blunt about preference of wins over touchdowns.

Never one to finish first in the silent game Hall told Larry Michael, Voice of the Redskins, that he was speechless of what transpired in Mile High and with another disappointing finish he won’t gloss over any individual accomplishments with teammates and media alike.

“For the first time in my life I’m speechless,” Hall said.

If anyone else said that I’d just laugh in obvious denial of their claim, but with Hall–it’s believable.

But how good has Hall been this season?

Power Rankings Roundup: Week 9

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 30, 2013 – 7:00 am

(AP)

In the course of 60 minutes in Denver, the Redskins defied expectations by skyrocketing to a 21-7 lead, then descended back into orbit.

The positive shock was just enough to tease an improved identity, but the subsequent collapse thudded hard enough to diminish the team in the eyes of the national media. The passing offense took a step back, and the press took notice.

The Redskins dropped at least one spot in every power rankings we surveyed.

RECAP: “18 Plays” Part One

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 29, 2013 – 6:03 pm

and the rout was on

All week long we’re bringing you the memories.

Sunday marks the latest iteration of the annual Redskins Alumni Homecoming game. During halftime of Washington’s home tilt against the San Diego Chargers, the team will honor alumni from the Super Bowl XXII squad that won a championship 25 years go.

Throughout the week Redskins.com is releasing segments of the documentary “18 Plays: The Story of the Super Bowl 22 Champions.”

We’ve covered my passion for documentary-style film before, so I don’t need to tell you how excited I am about this.

Let’s take a look back at some of my favorite moments from the first part of “18 Plays,” which tells the story of a trade nixed at the 25th hour and how Doug Williams sat on the bench before becoming a Super Bowl MVP.

Turnover Battle Hurts Team This Go-Round

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 29, 2013 – 3:05 pm

Each week I take a portion of Tuesday afternoon to reflect on play(s) that changed momentum during the previous game.

Take Aldrick Robinson’s debatable no-touchdown call against the Detroit Lions earlier in the season. Down by three in the fourth quarter and 74 years worth of home success against the downtrodden franchise hanging in the balance, Robinson gained the necessary separation from his defender (which for most wouldn’t be enough) to free himself for a touchdown.

Unfortunately, whether you agree with the Incredible Hulk of referees (Ed Hochuli) or not, the ruling of not having possession through the catch stunted the Redskins comeback attempt.

On Sunday, the hysteria of possibly beating the most predicted team to win the Super Bowl skyrocketed as soon as DeAngelo Hall took back his third touchdown of the season . But unsuccessful play after unsuccessful play and a shocking five turnovers to end the game ruined the team’s glimmer of victory.

Harris Teeter Premieres ‘Garcon De Pierre’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 29, 2013 – 2:45 pm

Pierre Garcon can typically get by with one hand.

But the “Garcon de Pierre” sub he debuted Tuesday at Harris Teeter in Reston, Va., required his full attention.

Featuring grilled chicken breast, swiss cheese, lettuce, pickles, banana peppers, honey mustard, oil and vinegar, ranch dressing and salt and pepper on a white sub roll, the “Garcon de Pierre” was a heavy lift.

“It’s a two-handed sandwich,” Garcon said. “You gotta protect it.”

Garcon’s Touchdown Pledge To Sankner

In September, Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon pledged to donate money to Tara Sankner, an eight-year old who is battling an inoperable form of brain cancer, for every touchdown he scored against the Philadelphia Eagles in the season opener.

Despite hauling in a team-high seven catches for 64 yards, Garcon was held out of the end zone.

Without a touchdown, Garcon decided to rollover his touchdowns pledge, but not just against Green Bay the next week.

In honor of National Childhood Awareness Month, Garcon extended his vow to help Sankner through the end of the month.

Recording two touchdowns in the month, the first against the Packers and the other in Oakland, Garcon not only helped his team but the Sankner family.

When we last checked in with Pierre and Tara, he was spending a Sunday with her making bracelets. While she made several beautiful bracelets of varying color combinations, Garcon admitted that he was no match. “She was so much better than me at it.” he recalled.

Last week, Garcon and Sankner met up once again, but this time he had something far greater than a ball of yarn in his “fat” hands—an oversized check that was signed by the team.
