Redskins Power Rankings Roundup: Week 14

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 4, 2013 – 5:12 pm

I like to use psychadelic rock bands from Australia to get my points across. Consider it a personal policy. So thanks, Tame Impala, for helping me communicate.

At this point in the season, it feels like we only go backwards in the national media’s power rankings. The Redskins are in the midst of a four-game losing streak. They are dangerously close to the bottom spot.

ESPN is looking ahead to how the Redskins will finish in the NFC East. Read more »

While the players had the day off on Tuesday, practically half the roster was working outside of Redskins Park.

A team-record 23 players donated their time and energy to support four different events, representing the most players to support community events on a single Community Tuesday.

Take a look at all the ways the team gave back to the community.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III had one of his best performances of the season–but he refuses to bask in the spotlight of a game that opened with 12 consecutive completions.

His team lost and were eliminated from playoff contention.

With four games remaining on the slate, Griffin III answered questions about his approach to playing football with no playoff appearance being a reality and how the team really is away from the media.

Shanahan: ‘KC Is A Very Talented Team’

Moving forward from back-to-back games in prime time, the Washington Redskins host the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend with the opportunity to put their AFC West title aspirations on the ropes.

Despite losing three straight games, two of which vs. Denver, the Chiefs have experienced one of the best turnarounds in league history.

After winning only a pair of games last season, the original AFL team resorted to a culture changing move by bringing in longtime Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid and former No. 1 overall pick Alex Smith.

The duo along with a quick-strike defense, a reinvigorated Jamal Charles and Dwayne Bowe having recorded at least 50 receiving yards in six of his last nine games has Kansas City Lombardi Trophy dreamin’.

Anyway, Shanahan also focused some of his Wednesday press conference on his own team and his thoughts on some of the younger players, injury updates, the league’s penalty system, Pierre Garcon’s emotion and more.

Garcon Vs. Morris–Race To 1,000

Keep it 1,000, bro.

It was expected with a full offseason to recover from a string of injuries he fought through last season that wide receiver Pierre Garcon was going to fill that top target role the Redskins wanted him to be when they snatched him up in free agency last March.

Alfred Morris, fresh off a season where he passed Redskins greats John Riggins and Clinton Portis on the team’s single-season rushing list, vowed that what you saw last season was nothin’. He was going to do his best to be Alfred 2.0.

Entering this Sunday’s game against Kansas City (apparently there might—and I’m not getting anyone’s hopes up because we all know how often a forecast sticks around here—snow) both are within striking distance of 1,000 yards on the season.

Question is who will get there first?

Logan Paulsen On Touchdown, Record

The locker room after a game, win or lose, is one of the most telling signs of how exhausting the sport of football can be both mentally and physically.

Preparation for games start days in advance with film study, sweat dripping weight lifting sessions, grueling practices and hours spent with media asking them questions of football and team camaraderie.

The raw emotion of this year’s disappointing record is most vivid in the minutes following a game. With the media allowed to speak to them shortly after walking off the field, the players are brutally honest in their responses.

Tight end Logan Paulsen scored his second touchdown of the season on Sunday.

Euphoria of his play was short lived, however, and his thoughts of a season that won’t end with a playoff appearance seeped it’s way into his answers asked by beat reporters from ESPN, CBS and CSN Washington.
