Watch Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden Introduce Himself to Washington

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 9, 2014 – 6:17 pm

A70G3365

Bruce Allen didn’t mind answering the phone in the middle of the night.

The Redskins Executive Vice President/General Manager said he received calls at “all hours of the evening” from coaches looking to praise the man sitting to his right inside the auditorium at Redskins Park.

Jay Gruden’s references were impeccable.

Allen introduced Gruden as the 29th head coach of the Washington Redskins in a Thursday night press conference. The executive detailed the franchise’s exhaustive search for it’s new leader and the qualities required of the man who would direct the football team.

Gruden had the fire in his belly Allen described 11 days earlier.

The team’s new teacher accepted a round of applause before thanking his family. Gruden thanked Marvin Lewis, Mike Brown and all the Cincinnati Bengals, then showed his appreciation for Redskins owner Daniel Snyder and Allen.

For about 45 minutes, he fielded questions about reviewing the assets he has in Washington, his impressions of quarterback Robert Griffin III and if he favors a 3-4 or a 4-3 defense. Gruden talked about his history with Allen, picking a coaching staff and much more.

Watch the full press conference below and follow the Redskins on Twitter and Instagram for breaking news as Gruden hires his staff.

What Was The Coldest Game In Redskins History?

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 4, 2014 – 11:10 am

(AP)

Joe Aguirre can’t hit the winning field goal for the Redskins (AP)

There was no tarp in Cleveland.

The hometown Rams used close to 9,000 bales of straw to protect the field before the NFL Championship Game on Dec. 16, 1945. The Rams would use the same straw to cover their legs for warmth on a day that reached eight degrees below zero.

Sammy Baugh was ineffective. The two-time NFL champion completed only one pass before he left the game with an injury. Another attempt from the end zone bounced off the goal post for a safety in a 14-15 loss. Cleveland’s Hall of Fame bound rookie Bob Waterfield passed for two touchdowns  and won the game’s MVP award. Baugh’s replacement Frank Filchock threw two touchdowns, but Joe Aguirre missed two field goals in terrible conditions.

It was a cold day, but not the coldest in NFL historyRead more »

General Manager Bruce Allen: ‘It Is My Job To Find The Next Head Coach’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 30, 2013 – 3:22 pm

Brucehand

Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen had a “painful” day he said was fitting for a “painful” season.

Allen met with Owner Daniel Snyder and Mike Shanahan at 9 a.m. Monday morning to relieve Shanahan of his duties to the franchise. The GM met with assistant coaches throughout the day, then addressed the media four hours after the dismissed coach made a statement.

Allen stressed that that every member of the organization had a part in a 3-13 season. He spoke to the media about how the franchise has begun its search for a new head coach, what the criteria for that position will be and what the club will learn from a regular season full of distractions.

He talked about how the world of sports lends itself to instant evaluation, how to create stability and how NFL teams can complete quick turnarounds.

(AP)

About 15 minutes after the Redskins announced they have relieved Executive Vice President/Head Coach Mike Shanahan of his duties with the team, Shanahan made a statement to the media at Redskins Park.

“First off, I’d like to thank the fans,” Shanahan said.

“Through the first couple years, you go through some rough times. I can’t tell you how supportive this fan base is. And to be able to coach here… in front of fans like that, that support you the way they do, made me feel very special.”

Shanahan went on to thank Daniel Snyder for an opportunity to coach the team and thank the players for their efforts.

The former coach talked about the team’s issues with the salary cap, the progression of the franchise under his direction and positives for the future of the Redskins.

Watch video of the full statement below and follow @Redskins for updates throughout the day. Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen will address the media at 2 p.m. ET. Read more »

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 27, 2013 – 12:00 pm

 

 BLOG PRESENTED BY DESKSITE

One of the bottom feeders in the NFC South will travel to Washington in 2014. What happens this weekend will decide which one.

At 3-12, the Redskins will finish last in the NFC East no matter what happens Sunday in New York, which means, per NFL protocols, the team’s 2014 opponents are all but set.

Washington will play a typical divisional slate, four games against the NFC West, four games against the AFC South, a road contest against the last place team in the NFC North (Minnesota is locked in) and a home game against the last place team in the NFC South. Read more »

London Fletcher Explains ’99 Percent’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 27, 2013 – 7:00 am

London Fletcher

Ever since London Fletcher announced he was all but certain about retiring after the season, the linebacker left a nagging one percent open to debate.

Fletcher said then and has since maintained he is 99 percent sure he will retire after his 256th consecutive regular season game.

Maybe he didn’t want to create a Favreian dilemma. Maybe he just couldn’t wrap his head around life without football.

In the locker room at Redskins Park on Thursday, Fletcher shined a little light on what 99 percent means to him. Read more »

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 26, 2013 – 10:35 am

compton

Will Compton made Christmas plans with his playbook.

The rookie linebacker was activated from the practice squad on Tuesday to fill in for injured veteran Nick Barnett.

Compton said on Christmas Eve his holiday plans were to catch up on film study and prepare for his one game opportunity in New York.

“So far I’ve just basically replaced Nick,” Compton said. “They’re giving me backup reps behind London (Fletcher) and (Barnett’s) spots on special teams.” Read more »

Best Christmas Ever: Brian Orakpo’s Mom Bought Him A Nintendo 64

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 25, 2013 – 2:20 pm

(AP)

(AP)

Brian Orakpo is a chiseled, 27-year old man with a face cut from granite, an imposing 6-foot-4, 257-pound linebacker who celebrates sacks with a low-octave growl like a malevolent Barry White.

But not so long ago he was just an excited kid, probably less excited than this kid, but still pretty excited.
