Reed Doughty Puts Gallaudet On His Head

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 13, 2013 – 5:10 pm

Reed

Reed Doughty put a bison on his forehead.

Not literally you maniac. In a Wednesday open locker room session, the Northern Colorado product wore a Gallaudet hat four days after taking in the Bison’s 35-7 win over Anna Maria at Hotchkiss Field. Doughty took his family to the game for a rare Saturday treat. Typically he spends his Saturdays in preparation, but Washington already played on Thursday night.

Like Doughty, who said he knew he had hearing loss since he was 5, Gallaudet’s players face varying degrees of deafness or are hard of hearing. As a result, the players and coaches have intricate sign language they employ on the field.

Series History: Redskins Eagles

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 13, 2013 – 4:30 pm

Robert Griffin III was a question mark, untested with no preseason experience. Chip Kelly stood on the sidelines wearing a darker shade of green.

In the 157th meeting between the Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles, a Week 1 marquee matchup on Monday Night Football showcased two of the most prominent NFL story lines from the summer of 2013.

How would RGIII fare in his first game action since rehabilitating a surgically reconstructed right knee? How effective would Chip Kelly’s quick-strike Oregon offense be in the NFL?

Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 13, 2013 – 3:59 pm

Robert Griffin III has had more success against the Eagles than any other team during his nascent professional career.

Connecting on nearly 70 percent of his 88 attempted passes for 727 yards, eight touchdowns and three interceptions, the sophomore has found ways to beat Philly before.

He’ll need to find that magic similar to Week 11’s  last season where his perfect quarterback rating set the table for a run no one saw coming once again on Sunday.

Notorious for petulantly throwing aggressive fandom around the home field, Eagles fans believe they are tasting blood. The Redskins, however, are not letting the three games below .500 record squash their playoff hopes.

Anyway, 10 weeks after making his season debut, Griffin III addressed a large media contingent and focused his press conference on the offense’s improvement since the last Redskins-Eagles game.

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan addressed the media following a wacky week of quickly turning around from an overtime victory to playing in Minnesota just four days later.

Despite being behind the eight ball once again, the Redskins are still very much alive in an NFC East that currently has no team sporting a record above .500.

In a smart decision to get his team away from Old Man Winter’s early appearance, the Redskins practiced inside this afternoon and had some interesting news tidbits to share following.

Here’s a Twitterized summary of what Shanahan had to say this afternoon courtesy @Redskins:

Davin Meggett’s Happy Homecoming

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 13, 2013 – 1:35 pm

Every time I watch Davin Meggett’s highlight clips from his days at the University of Maryland I get Chris Berman’s ‘Woop!’ stuck in my head.

The newest Washington Redskin is a local kid, growing up in the heart of Redskins Nation where he attended Surrattsville High School in Clinton, MD.

He was most recently on the Cowboys’ practice squad, but he’s also donned Texans and Colts colors as well.

A Doak Walker Award candidate (not to be confused with our very own Doc Walker) during his last season with the Terrapins, Meggett brings 4.5-speed, a top 60-yard shuffle time and an imposing presence that even Tony Atlas awes at.

I didn’t line up cones in the locker room and ask him to replicate his magic from the 2012 Combine, but I did ask him about the thrill of being back home.

It’s the rematch and the Washington Redskins are looking to extract revenge after their comeback attempt in Week 1 was staved off in the last minute.

A majority of early season predictions had the Redskins winning back-to-back division titles for the first time since 1983-84. They also had the Philadelphia Eagles finishing last in the first year of a complete culture change under Chip Kelly.

Gone are the preseason picks and in is a must-win game for the Redskins in their quest for division supremacy.

This week’s Redskins.com feature poll focuses on four  keys to making sure Philly remains winless in the City of Brotherly Love.

Which is the biggest? Well we’re asking you to let your voice be heard.

The choices are as follows:

Power Rankings Roundup: Week 11

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 13, 2013 – 10:01 am

Let’s do it again.

In this week’s power rankings, some members of the national media expressed their doubts about Washington’s ability to rebound from a 3-6 record for the second year in a row. If the Redskins are to rise, they’ll have to mimic last year’s late season run. After its 2012 bye, Washington won seven straight games, starting with a 31-6 victory over Philadelphia.

I’m trying to stay optimistic. Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio? Not so much.
