      So, the next step for the 2015 Washington Redskins, on their way to the division crown, demands we make a trip into the Fortress of Solitude, to defeat Superman. And we all know how you do that....

      That's right boys and girls. By the time we finish with them, they'll seem more like Josey & The Pussycats!
      Sure, they're undefeated. Yes, they have ...

      9-0. Now that's a heady place to be, something Panthers fans are not used to experiencing.

      It will give you a lot of confidence, no doubt, but it doesn't erase in some Carolinsa fans minds the fact that the Redskins have been playing noticeably better lately and may not be the doormat bottom-feeder of recent seasons. Oh they expect to win but not all think it will be a cakewalk.

      Redskins Park

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      Opening statement:
      “Did not participate was [Jason] Hatcher, knee. Limited was Keenan Robinson, shoulder; [Chris] Culliver, knee; D-Hall, toe; Trenton Robinson, hamstring, which was today, and then, Chris Baker, ankle and rib. Everybody else was full.”

      On the biggest challenge in facing Panthers QB Cam Newton:
      “Well, it’s a great challenge all across the board, you know, not only stopping the run for Jonathan Stewart who’s a heck of a back, you’ve got a heck of a tight end in [Greg] Olsen, you’ve got great speed in Ted Ginn, but then you have a quarterback that cannot only keep the ball in the zone reads, but run between the tackles on the powers and the play-actions off of them. [Carolina Panthers Offensive Coordinator] Mike Shula is doing an outstanding job with that offense. Very tough to stop all across the board but you’ve got to be really gap-secure in your defense and you have got to be sound at the back end, like every week. But this week’s a little bit different with the threat of him running the ball as often as he does — not only designed runs but the quarterback scrambles.”

      On Newton’s ability to run for first downs, especially on third down:
      “He can fall down and get two ...

      Week ten is in the books and now we take a look at how the entire team fared against the Saints. We also celebrate a milestone. This is the 100th blog from BBQ and it is an honor to serve the Redskins fans here at BGO. We knew the football game would be better than the previous week, but a blowout victory against an elite quarterback – the second one in two weeks – was a welcomed sight. As honest as we were about a lopsided loss, we will try to be forthright about a huge victory. ...

      On having a near-perfect game:
      "Yeah, I mean I’ve had a couple before. I’ve been fortunate enough to be part of games like that before but it feels very gratifying. We had a great week of preparation and it carried over to Sunday. We said last Sunday that we’d have an edge to us coming out of the way the last game finished and we certainly did. It started Wednesday, or Tuesday, when we got back in the building and carried over into Sunday."

      On playing against Saints QB Drew Brees and if he felt he had to outperform him:
      “I think if I get in that mindset you put yourself in trouble, but at the same time there’s less room for error going against a really good quarterback. And fortunately, with the way we ran the ball and the way we were able to throw it we didn’t make those errors and we were able to put up enough points where we could come out with a win. But certainly when you play against great quarterbacks there’s less room for error.”

      On how easy it was to get into a rhythm thanks to good play-calling:
      “It felt easier to answer your question. To expand on that, when we execute and everybody does their part, good things happen, and it definitely feeds itself, you know it helps the play calling with the next play. It helps us all execute going forward, and we said that ...

      Opening statement:
      "First off, we don’t have any injuries to note. [RB] Alfred Morris went out of the game with a sore rib and finished the game."

      On the team’s performance:
      “It was very impressive; I told them in the locker room it was our best week of practice. We practiced with great energy, great focus and it carried over to a game. It was great to see those guys all step up - offense, defense. Defense against a heck of a quarterback, heck of an offensive scheme over there. Stepped up and made some big plays. Of course special teams played well also.”

      On QB Kirk Cousins’ performance:
      “He was obviously very good. You have a perfect passer rating you’re going to be pretty good. But really the people around him… I think the ...

      "If you don't like it, pitch better."

      A seven word sign that hangs in the locker area of current free agent MLB pitcher, David Price, which serves as a reminder for what he expects of himself every time he takes the mound. Simple, to the point, and truly powerful.

      The Washington Redskins are at a bit of a crossroads in the 2015 season. Sitting at 3-5 exactly at the midway point, they face an ...

      Week nine is in the books and now we take a look at how the entire team fared against the Patriots. We knew it could get ugly and that was certainly the case, but it could’ve been much worse. After a few days of reflection it is time to be honest and recognize that the numerous injuries will limit the Redskins for the remainder of the season. So now it is time to make some sense of it all as BBQ hands out grades and evaluations. Feel free to offer your own grades, evaluations, ...
