Robert Griffin III, Alfred Morris off to record-setting starts

+

"RG3 and Morris became the first pair of rookie teammates in NFL history to rush for four touchdowns each in their team’s first four games, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. It’s the first time since the 1970 league merger that the Redskins have had two players – rookie or veteran — with four rushing touchdowns apiece in their first four games."

Should we draft Ryan Mallett? Let's Watch the Sugar Bowl Tonight and See For Ourselves...

Arkansas (10-2) vs. Ohio State (11-1) WHEN: Jan. 4, 8:30 p.m. WHERE: Louisiana Superdome, New Orleans TV: ESPN (Brad Nessler will do play-by-play, with Todd Blackledge as the analyst). THE LINE:...

Shanahan Vindicated??

2

"Shanahan's stated reason for benching McNabb was that he wanted to "evaluate" the offense without him. This is what "evaluating" looks like: a power struggle. For a while, it looked like organizational chaos, when Rex Grossman gave up two turnovers that led directly to touchdowns for the Cowboys, and a 27-7 third-quarter deficit. But in the end, Shanahan's judgment was validated. The truth was that the Redskins were better in McNabb's absence, even in a 33-30 loss."

Redskins GM: Haynesworth timing was coincidence

3

Bruce Allen says it was a coincidence that Albert Haynesworth’s four-game suspension came with four games left in the season. Allen said he was the one who informed owner Dan Snyder that Haynesworth was being suspended, but only after the decision had been made.

Haslett on Haynesworth: "Can you ever make the guy happy?"

6

"I don't think I've ever had a player just tell me he didn't want to play "Okie" defense [the base 3-4] and then later say he didn't want to play nickel versus the run, 'Just play me on third downs,'" Haslett said. "No, I've never had that before. And we tried to accommodate him. It's a shame because he's athletic enough. He can do almost anything he wants. Obviously, he didn't want to do it. Good athletes can do a lot of different things. Basketball players -- guards can play forwards, they can play different positions. I watch throughout the league, I see wide receivers do the 'Wildcat.' I think to myself, 'If you're a good enough athlete, you can do almost anything you want. You've just got to want to do it.'"

Roster analysis: Casey Rabach, Will Montgomery and the future at Center

13

In short, with a $3 million salary looming in 2011, by structuring the signing bonus in [the manner Bruce Allen did], the Redskins can terminate Rabach's contract without cap accounting consequence in 2011, meaning with zero dead money. Had the team not negotiated this provision, Rabach's dead money would have been $2.8 million. Therefore, one can conclude, in part, that the Redskins were uncertain of Rabach's role beyond 2010 and structured a contract accordingly. Centreville's Will Montgomery, Rabach's replacement last week in Tennessee, also had his contract renegotiated prior to the 2010 season. That renegotiation could prove advantageous for the Redskins...

WR Terrence Austin promoted to Redskins' 53-man roster

"Joey Galloway and Roydell Williams this season have combined for just 12 catches. Galloway in the last week has drawn the criticism of his coaches for improperly running routes -- twice resulting in interceptions (against Chicago and Philadelphia). And Williams admittedly is still trying to pick up the playbook."

DeAngelo Hall Named NFC Defensive Player Of The Week

5

* Tied an NFL and Redskins record: Hall became 19th NFL player and third Redskin to record four interceptions in the same game. Last NFL Player to do so was Denver's Deltha O'Neal on Oct. 7, 2001. Sammy Baugh (11/14/43 vs. Detroit) and Dan Sandifer (10/31/48 vs. Boston) were the other Redskins to do so. * The 92-yard interception return for a touchdown was the longest of his career and tied for the third-longest in Redskins history. * Coupled with his 32-yard fumble return for a touchdown in Week 1 against Dallas, Hall became the first Redskins defender to score two defensive touchdowns in the same season since Andre Collins in 1994. * Is the first Redskins cornerback to win the award since Champ Bailey did so in Week 4 of the 2003 season. * Also, this is a tough stat to check, but this is the first time since at least 1978 that a player has had four interceptions in one half of football.

James Davis Signed To The Practice Squad

1

Davis starred as a running back at Clemson, where he overlapped with Buffalo Bills rookie C.J. Spiller. He's the kind of one-cut running back who has the potential to star in Mike Shanahan's system, and is definitely a practice squad guy to keep an eye on.

Redskins sign Jeremiah Johnson to practice squad

4

"With third-string running back Chad Simpson sidelined by a hamstring injury, the Redskins may promote Johnson to the 53-man roster... During the preseason with Houston, Johnson rushed for 107 yards on 19 carries (a 5.6-yard average). While at Oregon, Johnson rushed for 2,336 yards and 30 touch­downs in four seasons."

Sam Bradford Will Be A Redskin??

24

Bradford unlikely to slip by Washington (according to Adam Schefter) Monday, November 2, 2009 | Print Entry Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford could slip some in the April NFL draft, but it is unlikely he would slip past the Washington Redskins' first-round pick. The Redskins' team doctor is Dr. James Andrews, who performed Bradford's shoulder surgery this past week. If any team is going to have extra insight as to how well Bradford's subsequent rehab is going, it is the Redskins. Of course, any team can get any information it wants about Bradford's shoulder, but it is an interesting connection that Andrews works for the Redskins. In the weeks before the 2008 NFL draft, Oregon running back Jonathan Stewart underwent foot surgery with Dr. Robert Anderson, who also happened to be the Carolina Panthers' team doctor. Then, when the draft came, Stewart slid some but not past the Panthers' 11th overall pick. This is not to suggest that Bradford is destined to land in Washington, but it's hard to imagine him getting past the Redskins' slot, wherever it is.

"Stephon Heyer is way ahead of everybody," [Joe Bugel] said. "He's a legit tackle. He's improved tremendously. This is his third year and he deserves to be the starter. He's been through all kind of torment and torture by me for three years. He deserves this opportunity. He's taken advantage of it."
