The Redskins relieved Executive Vice President/Head Coach Mike Shanahan of his duties Monday, a day after Washington lost its eighth straight game and finished the 2013 season 3-13.

Here’s a look at Shanahan’s tenure by the numbers:

24-39 Shanahan’s regular season record as head coach of the Washington Redskins.

0-1 – Shanahan’s playoff record with Washington.

38 % – Shanahan’s win-loss percentage with the Redskins. Compare that with a 62% mark in Denver. Read more »

London Fletcher’s Last Game

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 29, 2013 – 10:00 pm

London Fletcher waited in the hallway and hooked his hands into the collar of his shoulder pads.

He assumed a distant expression and listened to Darryl Tapp lead a prayer for health.

Light from outside the visitors’ tunnel at MetLife stadium flooded the right side of the linebacker’s 38-year old face, pointing out the spots where gray stubble pokes through if Fletcher doesn’t shave.

Rain drops seeped through the fissures in the metal ceiling and fell next to cleats inscribed with No. 59, “Iron Man,” and “256.” After the Giants beat the Redskins, Fletcher would sign each cleat and entrust them to teammates.

Brian Orakpo had one packed in his overnight bag. DeAngelo Hall made plans to showcase one above the bar in his home.

Linebackers trickled into the group wearing gold pants and white jerseys. The praying stopped, and the captain began his performance. Read more »

Fourth Quarter Conclusions: #WASvsNYG

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – New York’s third receiver was better than Washington’s second quarterback.

The Giants ruled Victor Cruz out before kickoff Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Hakeem Nicks had two catches but left the game with an ankle injury.

Jerrel Jernigan, the next man on the depth chart, caught six passes for 90 yards and a touchdown. He carried twice for 47 yards and another touchdown, sparking the Giants in  20-6 victory over the Redskins.

Kirk Cousins lost a fumble and went 19-of-49 with 161 yards and two interceptions. Eli Manning went 10-of-24 for 152 yards, a touchdown and a pick before sitting out the second half with an ankle injury.

Alfred Morris was explosive with 62 yards on 16 carries, but Washington couldn’t mix him in with rhythm.

Kai Forbath hit field goals from 31 and 49 yards out to account for all of the Redskins points.

Third quarter thoughts: The New York Giants started the game without their top receiver and have since lost their No. 2 wideout and their starting quarterback.

Like so many times this season, the Redskins have not been able to take advantage. Washington failed to turn an interception into points and killed two drives with fumbles.

Third quarter high: Kirk Cousins opens Washington’s 12th drive with hard, precise throw to Pierre Garcon for a 21-yard gain.

Third quarter low: Jerrel Jernigan closes the third quarter with a 49-yard rushing touchdown.

Third Quarter Thoughts: #WASvsNYG

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 29, 2013 – 2:59 pm

(AP)

(AP)

The Redskins scored first, but Kai Forbath’s 31-yard field goal only served to wake the Giants.

New York returned Washington’s first scoring drive with a touchdown. Both starting quarterbacks have struggled in the rain, but Eli Manning made one perfect throw to Jerrel Jernigan.

Kirk Cousins went 7-of-18 for 55 yards in the first half. Manning completed 11-of-25 passes for 160 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

Washington scored twice off of turnovers, but still trails because it couldn’t take advantage of red zone opportunities.

Second quarter high: Brandon Meriweather strips Andre Brown, Josh Wilson recovers and the Redskins convert the turnover into a field goal to take a three-point lead.

Second quarter low: New York answers Washington’s scoring drive with a six-play run capped off by Jerrel Jernigan’s 24-yard touchdown catch. Read more »

Neither offense has produced points on a wet, sloppy day at MetLife Stadium.

Andre Brown has been ineffective with 0 yards on six carries, while Alfred Morris has 12 yards on three tries.

Neither Eli Manning or Kirk Cousins have been particularly sharp.

Follow the live blog in the second quarter to see who strikes first.

First quarter high: Perry Riley Jr. swarms Eli Manning for a 7-yard sack.

First quarter low: Hakeem Nicks negates a stuffed run with a high jump and catch to gain 15 yards. Read more »

First Quarter Happenings: #WASvsNYG

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 29, 2013 – 1:02 pm

Kirk Cousins

This is a game of lasts.

London Fletcher is 99 percent sure his 256th straight game will be his last. A roster upheaval is likely in the works with the majority of the defense facing free agency in 2014.

Week 17 always brings closure, but the Redskins are facing major change.

They have one more opportunity to end a sour season on a sweet note, to end a seven-game losing streak and send their captain out with a road win.

Experts Pick ‘Em: #WASvsNYG

Few “experts” believe the Washington Redskins will win today vs. the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.

In fact, they’ve trolled the franchise all week long about the possibility of a very blue 0-6 record against division foes.

Apparently all of the walls are painted blue at ESPN’s headquarters in Bristol, too.

Redskins Fans Gather To Rally In NYC!

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 29, 2013 – 11:00 am

Filling into established Redskins bar Dorrian’s Red Hand Restaurant, fans enjoyed free #HTTR t-shirts, great raffle prizes, and the inspiring words of Larry Michael and Redskins greats Rick ‘Doc’ Walker and Chris Cooley. Read more »

Special Fletcher Commemorative Cleats

Sunday more than likely will mark the end to one of the most historic careers in NFL history.

Unlike the Robert Griffin IIIs and Brian Orakpos of the world, who were top prospects in college before being drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft, linebacker London Fletcher earned his spot in the starting lineup through determination and a disregard for the doubters.

Always associated with a blue-collar workman’s attitude, Fletcher’s going in a slightly different direction today with these commemorative cleats bringing his career efforts into the spotlight:
