What Doug Williams Learned From Gibbs

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 7, 2014 – 4:10 pm

Doug Williams is feeling lucky like it’s 1986.

The personnel executive told Larry Michael he never thought he would be back with the team he led to victory in Super Bowl XXII. So when Williams and Bruce Allen agreed on a position in February, he said he felt just like he did when he got a phone call from Joe Gibbs offering him a job as the back-up quarterback in D.C.

“Things just worked out,” Williams said on “Redskins Nation. “And I’ll tell you what, it’s one of the best things that happened to me. It’s kind of like 1986 over for me, to be able to come back under different circumstances.” Read more »

Haslett: Work Atmosphere Is ‘Awesome’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 17, 2014 – 11:52 am


The buzz began to build at Redskins Park since Jay Gruden’s first day as head coach  back in January.

In a little more than a month, Gruden has finalized his staff and breathed life into a building bogged down by a 3-13 season.

In an appearance with Larry Michael on “Redskins Nation,” Defensive Coordinator Jim Haslett said the last two months of the 2013 season were probably the worst he’s had in three and half decades playing and coaching pro football, but the atmosphere has already shifted under the new regime.

“A couple players came in the other day. They said they could feel it,” Haslett told MichaelRead more »

Why Brian Baker Got Into Coaching

Brian Baker was honest with himself.

After playing for Jerry Claiborne and Bobby Ross at the University of Maryland from 1981-1983, Baker knew he didn’t fit an NFL prototype for any one position. So he became a student coach and then a graduate assistant, launching a 30-year coaching career that’s taken him to eight professional teams.

Baker explained  his thought process coming out of college to Larry Michael on “Redskins Nation” Wednesday night.  Read more »

Sean McVay: There Are ‘A Lot Of Good Things To Build On’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 17, 2014 – 11:13 am


Sean McVay appeared on “Redskins Nation” with Larry Michael on Thursday and assured viewers Washington’s offense wouldn’t ignore the elements that made it a top-10 unit during the past two years.

The 27-year old offensive coordinator said he and Jay Gruden would collaborate to meld facets of the foundation the Redskins built on offense since Robert Griffin III arrived in 2012 with components of Gruden’s scheme from Cincinnati.

“What makes Jay great as a coach is, he’s never going to be the type of guy that’s going to say, ‘Hey this is my offense, and you’re going to fit into it.’ He’s going to find what our players do best,” McVay told Michael.

“With the things we were able to do the last two years offensively, there will be a lot of that stuff.” Read more »

“When I came out of surgery I saw the introductory press conference. It was definitely an exciting day and I look forward to what the future holds with Coach Gruden.” Read more »

RG3 ‘Happy But Not Satisfied’ With 2012

Four months removed from the Redskins first NFC East title since 1999, quarterback Robert Griffin III still isn’t satisfied with the way his debut season came to an end.


Yes to an extent as he was truly honored for being voted the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year over fellow 2012 NFL Draft colleagues Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson and Alfred Morris.

He also certainly will not complain about winning a division crown and leading the Burgundy and Gold back to the playoffs, but in the end No. 10 never set his end goals on a division crown.

He set his sights directly on hoisting the Lombardi Trophy at Super Bowl XLVII.

No. 10 sat down with Larry Michael for the ninth installment of “10 Days With No. 10” on Redskins Nation to speak about:

–Winning AP Offensive Rookie of the Year.

–The team’s first round playoff exit.

–On how his life has changed since being on stage with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell last spring.

Ravens Game Was ‘Tough’ For Griffin III

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 24, 2013 – 11:11 am

When the team started its seven-game winning streak to catapult them from last in the NFC East to eventual division champions with a 31-6 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, it seemed as if everything started to click.

Just a few days later on Thanksgiving, quarterback Robert Griffin III led the Redskins in an incredible display of offensive power in the second quarter when the Burgundy and Gold trounced the Cowboys defense for 28 points before beating Dallas by a final score of 38-31. Then on Monday Night Football, the Redskins eked out a 17-16 victory over the New York Giants to pull the team back to .500.

In Week 14, however, the Redskins were faced with perhaps their biggest obstacle to date.

Late in a down to the wire contest with Washington’s closest geographical rival, Griffin III was knocked out of the game with an injury. At that moment it seemed as if the Redskins winning streak was in jeopardy of coming to an end at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens.

Obviously that did not happen as Kirk Cousins led the Redskins to a comeback victory and a 38-21 win the next week in Cleveland.

In the seventh segment of “10 Days With No. 10” on Redskins Nation, the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year told Larry Michael what went through his head after leaving the Ravens game as well as watching the Browns game unfold from the sideline the next Sunday.

Morris, Griffin III Never Hit A Rookie Wall

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 23, 2013 – 10:39 am

Last year when Robert Griffin III took the field you would have thought that he was a season veteran with years of experience in the NFL, not someone who had  been at the podium with Roger Goodell at the draft just months earlier .

Along with his backfield partner Alfred Morris, the duo lead the league in rushing yards. Whether it was Morris running straight up the middle or a constructed a read-option keeper for No. 10, the two combined for over 2,400 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Griffin III sat down with Larry Michael once again on the set of Redskins Nation for the sixth edition of “10 Days With No. 10” to touch on his thoughts about his fellow 2012 NFL Draft colleague , on neither hitting a rookie wall late in the season and about being a leader and captain of a division-winning team.

Also, he explains what when down during Josh Morgan’s touchdown play in the Monday Night Football game against the New York Giants.

Was it a fumble or a designed toss?

RG3 On Cowboys Game: ‘It Was Special’

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 22, 2013 – 11:36 am

Robert Griffin III

At the conclusion of the 2011 season, teams who were at the top of the draft board were looking ahead to the 2012 campaign and explored every means necessary to improve on records that were below .500.

The Redskins were one of those teams and held the sixth overall pick in the draft.

However, with two of the top quarterback prospects to come into the league in years including a Heisman-winner from Baylor, Washington was determined to land one of the signal callers to spark a revolution in the Nation’s Capital.

The Redskins traded up to the number two slot and landed soon-to-be AP Offensive Rookie of the Year Robert Griffin III. No. 10 lived up to the hype and led the team to their first NFC East title since 1999.

That NFC East wouldn’t have been possible without a seven-game winning streak to end the season. The first two wins of that  streak (home against Philadelphia and at Dallas) showed the nation just how smart the franchise was for moving up to acquire Griffin III.

Griffin III sat down once again with Larry Michael on the set of Redskins Nation to speak on both games in the next segment of “10 Days with No. 10”.

Find out was was running through Griffin III’s head during his return to the Lone Star State here:
