Darrel Young’s Criteria For New Coach

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 6, 2014 – 1:40 pm



Fullback Darrel Young‘s ideal head coach would have to have one trait.

In an interview with CSN Washington, Young said he wants a coach that wants him.

“I just want… a guy that uses a fullback,” Young said.

“Coach (Mike) Shanahan and Kyle (Shanahan) found ways to put me in the offense. They found ways to get me involved in the running game. I did some good things versus San Diego, caught a pass versus Philly for a long touchdown completion. (They) just did some things and put myself in some scenarios, from a coaching standpoint, that made me feel good. I just want a coach that comes in and believes in me, believes in what we’re trying to do, believes in the players that he has. Of course with new coaches comes new change. We all understand that.”


Young also talked about difficulties with the offense in 2013, finding a role he never imagined and his reaction to the team relieving Shanahan of coaching duties.

London Fletcher’s Last Pregame Speech In The Tunnel At FedExField

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 23, 2013 – 2:00 pm

Look at the intensity in those eyes.

Before London Fletcher could leave everything on the field in a 24-23 loss to Dallas, before he could salute the fans for supporting him for seven years, he led the linebackers out of the home tunnel for most likely the last time.

Read the transcript of Fletcher’s speech here, and watch the video from CSN Washington below.

“Whether you’re in high school or college, you’ve got a game that means a little more than the other ones. There’s one game on your schedule that means a little bit more than the other ones. For us, this is that game. This is the Cowboys game. This is our game! This is that game that means more than all the other ones! You want to be remembered around here? Beat Dallas! You want to be remembered around here? Beat Dallas! That’s the mandate! Beat Dallas! Let’s go out there and get it done. We can control that. In this group, we’ve got the men to do it. Play with passion! Play with fire! Play with intensity! Be physical! Be focused! Let’s go get it! Like I say each and every week, linebackers set the tone! Linebackers set the tempo! LBs on three! One, two, three, LBs!”

Mike Shanahan: Redskins Need “Urgency”

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 27, 2013 – 12:30 pm



After reviewing game film of the Redskins’ third straight loss, Mike Shanahan said the team has no choice but to recollect itself and bounce back.

In his weekly one-on-one interview with CSN Washington’s Chick Hernandez, Shanahan said a short week preparing for the Giants will be another test of his team’s constitution.

“There’s gotta be a sense of urgency with our football team that when we do get embarrassed like we did and do score six points, what are we gonna do against the Giatns? How are we gonna play? And that’s where you find out where your character comes from. “

Best Of CSN Washington’s Pregame Show

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 9, 2013 – 12:00 pm


Ever had the chance to read Tarik El-Bashir’s excellent work or see him on the TV and think ‘Wow this guy can do it all ‘?

He can…but he chooses not to.

Apparently he is too good to hold his own umbrella now.

And the best way to show off the wrinkles of the read-option isn’t through a television screen with yellow lines drawn all over it.

It’s through Alfred Morris’ running back idol Chick Hernanadez trucking imaginary defenders.

As you chill out on this Saturday afternoon, check out this “Best of Redskins Kickoff” video package of the guys over at CSN Washington:

Follow Josh Morgan’s Steps On Gameday

“This was a dream come true.  Not even in my wildest dreams did I picture I’d be coming home.”

Those were some of the first words veteran wide receiver Joshua Morgan murmured in his first interview after signing with the Redskins last March.

Growing up in the shadow of famed RFK Stadium, Morgan continually preaches the importance of local community, both thankful for their support and hoping to use his fame to bring awareness to child literacy and fitness.

On the field, Morgan has asserted himself as the team’s No. 1 punt and kick returner along with providing quarterback Robert Griffin III another weapon alongside Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss and Leonard Hankerson.

Returning home after nearly a month away, CSN Washington followed Morgan from the start of his work day to the end against the Bears last week.

A devoted family man, it’s really great to see him be able to spend quality time with his loved ones after the game and hear his motivation come Sundays.

“I’m just trying to make my city proud and my family proud and do the best I can to get a victory.”

D-Hall Rates Brian Orakpo’s Interception

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 21, 2013 – 3:40 pm

Leave it to one of the best of the modern era to grade the abilities of others at intercepting pigskins.

For the third time this season, the Washington Redskins returned an interception to the house. In Week 3 cornerback DeAngelo Hall jumped Lions All-Pro Calvin Johnson’s route and picked off Matthew Stafford for a 17-yard return for a touchdown.

Then in Week 4 against the Raiders rookie David Amerson, whose decision to enter the NFL Draft was cause for all ACC quarterbacks to have a little get together and celebrate his departure from the college ranks, sniffed out a Matt Flynn pass for a 45-yard pick-six.

On Sunday, from perhaps the most unsuspecting suspect, linebacker Brian Orakpo located a wobbling ball in the air for not only his first career interception but return for touchdown as well.

Not bad for a guy who has the worst hands in the linebacking corps.

Rypien On Bold Prediction, RGIII, Redskins

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 18, 2013 – 11:26 am


It’s no mystery the Washington Redskins have fallen below high expectations to start the season. If being selected as NFC East Champions in various NFL preview publications wasn’t enough, they were top-10 in power rankings, fresh off a 4-0 preseason and successful training camp and, of course, are defending the division crown for the first time in 13 years.

Then something unexpected happened—they lost four of their first five games and at times, especially in the first half against the Eagles and Packers, looked far from the team the registered seven-straight victories to end 2012.

It’s early, but that excuse will soon fade away as the Redskins get into the meat of their schedule. Having said that, major progress was shown last week against the Cowboys.

Former Redskins quarterback and Super Bowl XXVI MVP Mark Rypien joined fellow Redskins legend and former teammate Brian Mitchell on the set of Sports Talk Live to talk current Redskins and how they’ll replicate 1987’s Super Bowl-winning team’s result.

Babe Laufenberg And The Giggling Marlin

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 11, 2013 – 12:00 pm


Eddie LeBaron. Ray Schoenke. Deion Sanders. Stephen Bowen.

It doesn’t happen very often, but there’s the occasional player that crosses enemy lines between the Redskins and Cowboys.

While Bowen may be the most recent player to trade allegiance and make the right decision to sport burgundy and gold, ignoring the Dallas boo birds in the process, his signing in 2011 was about as normal as it gets.

He talked with Redskins brass, weighed his options and signed on the dotted line.

For former Redskins/Cowboys quarter Babe Laufenberg though, his third time signing with the team can be chalked up in one simple word: unique.

Combine Hangout On Redskins Offseason

Posted by Brian Tinsman on February 25, 2013 – 7:35 am


On Saturday afternoon, yours truly joined forces with CSN Washington’s Tarik El-Bashir and Bleacher Report’s Will Carroll for the first ever Redskins’ Combine Google+ Hangout.

Carroll hosted the 25-minute debate, asking the two writers fan questions collected on Facebook and Twitter.

Friday’s news that Dr. James Andrews has Redskins’ quarterback Robert Griffin III “way ahead of schedule” brought speculation on whether or not he will be ready for Week 1.

The draft debate centered around the top safety prospects, but also included the possibility of a slot receiver, offensive lineman and could the Redskins draft the Honey Badger?

Check out the full debate, below, and share your own thoughts in the comment section:

Three ‘Skins Whippersnappers Make List

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 24, 2012 – 3:13 pm

(AP photos)

There’s certainly lots to be excited about if you’re a Washington-area sports fan.

Each professional sports team has at least one young superstar that they can point to as the future of their franchise.

According to a list released today by CSN Washington, the Washington Redskins have three young superstars who rank among the best at their positions in their respective sports.

OK, so the three photos above kind of spoil exactly which three Redskins appear on the list, which ranks “The Top 10 DC Pro Athletes 25 And Under,” but here’s exactly where they fall in the rankings:
