Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

This week is an efficiency test.

What can the Redskins do to maximize their preparation with a game in three days? Brush their teeth in the shower? Shave in the car? Walk and chew gum?

It’s time to forget the euphoria from the gutty win against San Diego. The Vikings loom, and even though they’ve had some issues picking a quarterback, the Norsemen gave the Cowboys a run for their money  in Dallas.

Executive Vice President and Head Coach Mike Shanahan addressed the media Monday evening about the week’s odd schedule, improvement from Robert Griffin III and dealing with a stressful profession.

DeAngelo Hall Not Fooled At The Goal Line

Mike McCoy was right.

If one of San Diego’s three plays inside the 1-yard line worked with 21 seconds remaining in Sunday’s game, the Chargers’ head coach wouldn’t be fielding questions about the play calling after a 30-24 loss to the Redskins at FedExField.

But they didn’t, and he was.

In the winning locker room after the game, cornerback DeAngelo Hall shed some light on the tricks the Chargers unsuccessfully tried to pull in the red zone.

Wounded Warriors Enjoy Sideline Pass

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 4, 2013 – 3:37 pm

As Niles Paul, Roy Helu Jr., Aldrick Robinson and Evan Royster jogged out of the tunnel onto the turf of FedExField Sunday afternoon, they each paused their pregame routine to visit with Rebecca Fletcher on the back border of the end zone .

A Maryland resident and lifelong Redskins fan, Fletcher was struck by the scenario. She had been to NFL games before, but never touched the field.

Thanks to the Maryland Patriot Guard, the wounded warrior Marine formerly stationed in California and Okinawa, Japan, attended the 30-24 overtime win against San Diego. Before heading up to a private suite donated to the group of veterans, Fletcher collected signatures in the west end zone.

“It’s absolutely amazing,” she said. “Very surreal, the players being this close and being able to call them over for autographs.”

It’s A Bird…It’s A Plane…It’s RGIII!

Usually on gamedays I post GIFs of some of the best plays such as Pierre Garcon beaming in footballs with one hand like he has a magnet under his glove, Darrel Young reaffirming the importance of the fullback position and Jordan Reed breaking Cowboys taluses.

When Robert Griffin III went airborne yesterday before landing in an awkward position I paused, waited and ultimately decided not to hit publish on a GIF I found of the gravity defying moment.

Now knowing that his sacrifice for the team in a tie game didn’t result in anything more than a slight cringe, it’s safe to say I can now post the sucker here:

You Can #AskGarcon Anything You Want

Posted by Brian Tinsman on November 4, 2013 – 1:29 pm

Garcon_shoot

How do you make so many one-handed grabs? How long did it take to learn to spin the football like that after a catch? Do you think Mount Union (his alma mater) will beat John Carroll (London Fletcher’s alma mater) in a few weeks?

If the moon were made out of spare ribs, would you eat it? I know I would.

Tomorrow is the day you’ve all been waiting for: the opportunity to ask Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon anything you want, as he answers questions on a LIVE video chat for FedEx:

What Went Right: Redskins Chargers

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 4, 2013 – 12:55 pm

Highlight: Darrel Young bangs into the end zone from 4 yards out, ending overtime and delivering a win.

What went right: Power football. The offensive line is fast off the ball, delivering a push at the line of scrimmage. Young takes the quick handoff and sees a crease up the middle. The fullback slips behind Kory Lichtensteiger and follows the lane created by two athletic linemen sealing off the next level. Will Montgomery ties up linebacker Bront Bird. Tackle Tyler Polumbus puts linebacker Andrew Gachkar on skates. Young finishes through contact and falls forward for a touchdown.

Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 4, 2013 – 12:01 pm

Whether you call him Robert Griffin III, RGIII, Bobby Griff (Tony Kornheiser) or simply Robert, the reigning AP Offensive Rookie of the Year had one of his better games of the season.

Shaking off a bizarre, pinball-esque interception in his own end zone, Griffin III connected on nearly 72 percent of his passes for 291 yards. On the final drive of the game he hit Jordan Reed and Pierre Garcon on beautiful dimes that only a handful of men on this earth could complete.

While he may have only rushed for 17 yards on the day, he picked and chose his spots, including a third down run that had a pretty painful looking landing but he brushed it off and trotted back to the huddle.

Also did you see the triple option plays? Even Santana Moss got a carry.

Anyway, despite his required presence at the podium, Griffin III was quick to deflect praise to his teammates.

Quick hits courtesy the Redskins’ Official Twitter (@Redskins):

VIDEO: Super Bowl XXII Team Ceremony

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 4, 2013 – 11:22 am

Wasn’t it great to see the guys back in burgundy and gold? Even if it was just in letter jackets, over 100 alumni scattered the sidelines before the game catching pregame warmups, reminiscing on old times, hugging former teammates who were like brothers, chatting with children who were just wee big when they were ballin’ on Sundays and so much more.

From Darrell Green to Doug Williams to Timmy Smith, several players from the Super Bowl XXII-winning team were on hand for a special halftime ceremony.

It seems like just yesterday that they were torching the Denver Broncos and having their fans looking like sad clowns. Yesterday, the larger than life figures returned.

Try telling me real men don’t cry after watching this video from their ceremony:

Who Wants A Free Sub For Lunch/Dinner?

Posted by Redskins.com on November 4, 2013 – 11:05 am

subway-coupon-promo

A Redskins’ offensive buffet on Sunday means a Subway Restaurants feast on Monday. And with the end of Daylight Savings time, don’t be afraid to skip out to lunch early.

When the Redskins scored more than 20 points in yesterday’s win over the San Diego Chargers, you got a free six-inch sub from Subway, courtesy of the restaurant and the Washington Redskins.

To participate (you need to use it at participating Subway Restaurants in the greater Washington, D.C., area), click on the photo above and print out the coupon, which gets you a free six-inch sub with the purchase of a 30 oz. drink and a bag of chips.

The offer is only good the day after home games in which the Redskins score 20 or more points — so escape from the office early and grab some lunch on us.

And don’t be afraid to double down for dinner.
