      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On the injury report:
      “Chris Baker did not participate. He is out. Shawn Lauvao was limited. He’s questionable. Jordan Reed did not participate. He is also out. Trent Williams did not participate. He’s questionable. Trent Murphy was full today. He is probable.”

      On if there is more optimism today regarding tackle Trent Williams:
      “Yeah, he’s made some progress in the training room. Yes, there is a little bit more, but we’ll see how it goes. The five-hour flight and all that stuff, that will be a big deal, how he gets off the plane., [if ...

      Believe it or not 49ers fans are mixed in their expectations about this game. Most think they'll win, but a lot of them think it will be tough.

      Their own performance has been kind of underwhelming of late and that shows through in some of their posts.

      THey played Dallas pretty well...I'm sure we won't overlook this team...they can be dangerous...especially w/ D jax.

      On the 49ers’ injuries on defense and what he sees from that unit:
      “Well, you hear about [Navarro] Bowman and Patrick Willis not being on the field and you’re like ‘whew,’ but then [Chris] Borland steps up and he’s playing very, very well. Obviously their pass rush has always been good. Justin Smith is very tenacious on the inside. Of course the outside guys with ...

      Blognosticator - Nobody

      I hate teams with numbers in their name. The 49ers, the 76ers, it’s just stupid and uncreative. I also hate San Francisco. I always have. I don’t know if it stems from Full House being such a terrible show, Rice a Roni only having 2 flavors my entire childhood (dirt and burnt tomato), or the fact they have a Spanish name. This is America - home of beer guts, Kardashian bashing, and football. We don’t need the romance, so eat it you armpit of ...

      Remember Robert Horry? Dude won like 20 titles (all numbers approximate) in the NBA with the Lakers and Spurs, and always seemed to hit a key three or two during a playoff run.Horry had a knack for being in the right place at the right time, and being able to step up and deliver when it mattered the most.

      Here's hoping Robert Griffin can deliver when it matters the most.

      I'm talking about this weekend. Friends and family of Redskins fans are on suicide ...

      Week Ten Grades, Questions

      Welcome to week ten questions and grades as the Redskins put forth a depressing effort against the lowly Buccaneers. The pathetic loss was one that caused strain for the team and fans alike. Feel free to offer your own grades, opinions, suggestions, and ideas. Also, we have some questions to close out this tenth week of action.

      Let’s take a look at the grades.

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On the injury report:
      “Did not participate today was Chris Baker; Shawn Lauvao, concussion; Jordan Reed, hamstring; and Trent Williams. And then limited was Trent Murphy.”

      On the status of tackle Trent Williams:
      “Like I said, it was not good enough for him to practice today, so we will see how he’s doing tomorrow, but he’s pretty sore. It’ll be a long road for him. But we’ll see. He’s a tough guy.”

      On quarterback Robert Griffin III’s media session:
      “I didn’t hear what he said, but … yeah, what the team needs is to focus on the team and focus on who we’re playing and not focus on this other stuff. That’s what we’re trying to do. We’re trying to put everything behind us. Early on in the season when I first got the job, I knew there was going to be a lot of questions about Robert, but I wanted to try to make this thing about the Redskins and not about him, and somehow we’ve made it more about him than about the team. That’s my fault. So the big thing moving forward is let’s correct everybody, not single anybody out and move on and do what we can do to beat San Francisco.”

      On why he made his comments public on Monday:
      “I think it was a mistake on my part. After a loss like that, we were very disappointed in the way we played and the question came up about how he played and all that stuff and I just answered it first thing that came to my mind. And sometimes the first thing that comes to your mind isn’t the smartest ...

      Redskins Park

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On the injury report:
      “OK, injuries… Chris Baker has the SC [sternoclavicular] joint sprain. It’s moderate. He’s sore. He’ll be day-to-day, obviously. Trent Williams has the MCL sprain and the ankle sprain. He did not get the MRI or any X-ray on his ankle. It’s just a sprain, but the MCL is a sprain also and that’ll be day-to-day. We’ll have to see how he’s doing. We’ll check again tomorrow and the next day and see. Questionable will be Shawn Lauvao – he’s going through the concussion protocol – and Jordan Reed with his hamstring sprain. And then Trent Murphy has a PCL partial tear, something he can play with if he can deal with a little bit of the soreness. Everybody else should be OK.”

      On if the team has reached a point in the season where he has to recalibrate his goals for this year:
      “Yeah, I think you have ...
