The Lions are coming off two wins in a row with a hot Matt Stafford leading the way. Now the four-game-win-streak Redskins come to town to try to stop the Lions streak at two.
How are Lions fans looking at this game? In a lot of ways, actually-some optimism, some pessimism, some uncertainty-the usual stuff.
Like I have seen a lot recently they are expecting a tight game.
They generally acknowledge two things-Stafford has been playing ...byPublished on 10-20-16 04:53 PM Number of Views: 10

Head Coach Jay Gruden
On the injury report:
“[Josh] Doctson did not participate. DeSean Jackson did not with his shoulder and Jordan Reed did not with a concussion. Full were [Su’a] Cravens and everybody else.”
On if there was a setback with TE Jordan Reed:
“Not a setback, we just thought – the medical staff thought – today it was best to keep him out. And he’ll get evaluated today again – or tomorrow, I’m sorry – by the independent doctor.”
On WR DeSean Jackson’s status:
“DeSean’s just got soreness in his shoulder and we chose to keep him out today.”
On if Jackson will play Sunday:
“Yeah, as long as it’s not his legs, but we’ll see. We’ll see how he’s feeling. You know, seriously though, he’s sore right now but [we will] continue to get him treatment today and we’ll see how he’s doing tomorrow.”

Head Coach Jay Gruden
On the injury report:
“Did not participate: [Josh] Doctson, Achilles; DeSean Jackson, shoulder. Limited were [Su’a] Cravens and [Jordan] Reed, concussion; [Spencer] Long with a knee; [Trent] Murphy, shoulder, knee; [Trent] Williams, knee; [Chris] Baker, knee and toe. Full were [Josh] Norman, wrist; [Martrell] Spaight, shoulder; [Dashaun] Phillips, hamstring.”
On the status of TE Jordan Reed and what the doctors have told him:
“Yeah, he is going to see our team doctor today. He did a little bit more today and then Friday he’ll see the independent doctor. We’ll know more really after Friday. We’ve just got to continue to progress him along and see how he’s feeling after more of a workload.”
On if it is “pretty unlikely” Reed plays on Sunday;
“No, not at all. It just means we have to wait and see what the independent doctor says and see how he does going through some work outside, you know, on a limited basis.”
On S Su’a Cravens:
“Same thing, same thing. He’s probably a little bit further along but he still has to… This is just increasing his workload and he’ll see our team doctor today and then he’ll see the independent guy Friday.”

Blognostication – October 23—Detroit Lions/Ford Field
Well, bear with me in my first attempt at blognostication. The Redskins are traveling to Ford Field to take on the 3-3 Detroit Lions. We are coming off a 4-game winning streak and the Lions a 2-game winning streak.
This past game with Philadelphia showed that just PERHAPS our coaching staff is learning the fine art of balanced attack. With 34 Pass attempts, ...byPublished on 10-16-16 07:04 PM Number of Views: 31
REDSKINS QB KIRK COUSINS
On what it’s like to dominate a defense like they did in the first half:
"It’s not easy to do, but it’s certainly an expectation from the coaches and from ourselves that when we go into games, what we need to do as an offense, we need to impose our will and execute at a high level. Again, in spurts today I think we showed what we are capable of, and the challenge will always be to do it from the first whistle to the last. It was a good offensive showing because so many guys contributed and made a difference and we need to just keep learning from the mistakes.”
On what the mindset has been like in the locker room the past four weeks:
"You can never hit the panic button in this game. All I know to do is take it one week at a time and we will see where we are when the dust settles in January and hopefully in February, which is always the goal. So you just have to keep playing. If you hit the panic button in this business, you don’t belong in this business. We just tried to stay the course, work very hard, prepare very well, and trust if we do that then good things will happen in the long run. It won’t happen every single week and that’s part of playing in the NFL. They test you every single week.”
On TE Vernon Davis’ performance in today’s game:
"Vernon did ...byPublished on 10-16-16 07:01 PM Number of Views: 33
REDSKINS HEAD COACH JAY GRUDEN
Opening statement and injury update:
"Alright, the only injury of note – really there isn’t one. [Will] Compton got banged up there and came back in the game. He’s OK.”
On what four straight wins after starting 0-2 says about this team:
“Well, it shows that they put in the work and they’re resilient and we understand situational football pretty good, the importance of each down and the next down. We can overcome things that happen. You know, we gave up a kickoff return and then an interception return back-to-back. Guys staying resilient. Just kept working, kept grinding. That’s pretty ...byPublished on 10-16-16 06:59 PM Number of Views: 20

Maybe the Eagles fans were in a state of shock after that unexpected loss to the Lions but there wasn't anywhere near the amount of chatter about the upcoming game with the Skins as I had thought-or hoped.
Be that as it may, there was some, mostly fairly confident, but, as I have seen on other boards, a fair amount of wariness about playing a suddenly streaking Redskins team.
Calling it now, it won't be that close. Coming off abyPublished on 10-13-16 07:24 PM Number of Views: 28

What is it about seeing your favorite football team win a game that makes Monday feel so good? I’ve wondered that for many years and I still can’t figure it out. No matter what it is, there is no denying that Redskins fans have enjoyed the last three Mondays. After five games, I still can’t figure out how good this team really is. I’m not sure if the players on the team know either. On one hand, they are one bad interception from being ...byPublished on 10-13-16 07:13 PM Number of Views: 29
Greetings from the international headquarters of BBQ.
Week five is in the books and now we take a look at how the entire team fared against the Ravens. The Redskins found a defense on Sunday, but some fans are questioning the efforts of the offense. It was the third straight win and we will try to make some sense of it all as BBQ hands out grades, evaluations and questions. Feel free to offer your own grades, evaluations, questions, and opinions.
