      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On the injury report:
      “Nothing changes. No changes. [Ryan] Clark was limited again. Everybody else was full participants.”

      On the quarterback situation:
      “We’ve moved Robert [Griffin III] along at a pretty good clip. We started him out in individual drills, monitored him. Last week he got some team drills, obviously. He did very well and the progress that he has made has had us put him in with the ones and prepare to be the starter. He’s coming along great. We wouldn’t put him in with the ones if we didn’t feel like he was 100 percent physically. Now it’s a question of ‘let’s get him some reps with the ones to see where he is mentally, see how he’s throwing the ball with the group, see if his timing is there, if his reads are there, see ...

      There was a lot of discussion among Vikes fans about Griffin and McCoy-who they thought they might face, and who they would rather face.

      kyvikesfan59

      Jay Gruden says that RG3 is "very, very, very close" to being ready to start, which means he'll probably start Sunday vs. the Vikes. IMO

      that's better for us than McCoy starting. RG3 hasn't played since week 2 and is likely rusty. McCoy is coming off a road win vs. Dallas and

      Welcome to week eight questions and grades as the Redskins put forth an inspired and magnificent effort against their arch rivals from Dallas. The victory was highlighted by heroics from a multiplicity of players who refused to quit at a time when many had given up on the team. Feel free to offer your own grades, opinions, suggestions, and ideas. Also, we have some questions to close out this eighth week of action.

      Let’s take a look at the grades.

      The book on the 2014 Washington Redskins was written. This was a team that was a complete and utter mess. One that couldn’t get out of its own way, one that coughed up the ball as often as it scored touchdowns.

      Many fans were even beginning to give up hope. We were doomed for a top 5 pick in the draft. It was time to brace for the pain of another losing season, with little to no positivity for the future.

      Redskins Park

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      ** The following is a transcript of Gruden’s conference call with local reporters this afternoon.

      On if the play of quarterback Colt McCoy eases pressure on the possible return of Robert Griffin III:
      “Well, we are not going to rush Robert back no matter what happens. You know, we are going to make sure that he is 100 percent, and until we feel like he is 100 percent, Colt will still play. And Colt did a great job obviously leading us to victory against Dallas, but it’s all going to be predicated on when the doctors say he is 100 percent, when Robert feels like he is 100 percent and when I feel like he is ready to take the game time reps.”

      On anything that stood out to him about McCoy’s play:
      “I like the way he competed, No. 1. You know, he wasn’t perfect by any ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On the injury report:
      “Injury report ... [Ryan] Clark, [Robert] Griffin [III] and [Tracy] Porter are all limited, or all three were limited, I should say. Full was [Trent] Williams, [Chris] Baker, [Perry] Riley, [Tyler] Polumbus and Alfred [Morris].”

      On the quarterback situation:
      “As far as the quarterbacks are concerned, nothing has really changed there either. So, if you guys want to eliminate the quarterback questions, we can do that [laughter]. We’re still preparing for Colt [McCoy] to be the starter and Robert [Griffin III] is continuing with his practice exertion. He’s getting more ...

      Redskins Park

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On the injury report:
      “Limited today was Ryan Clark, ankle/shoulder, Robert Griffin [III], ankle, [tackle] Trent Williams, knee... [Chris] Baker was full today… [Tracy] Porter, hamstring [was limited]… Full was Alfred Morris and full was Perry Riley [Jr.].”

      On if quarterback Robert Griffin III has received clearance for full contact:
      “Robert really hasn’t changed. You know, there’s really not a whole lot to say. He’s just steadily progressing in these drills this week and then we’ll make a decision probably later on. I’m not going to announce whether he’s active or inactive until, what, 7:30 Monday night, probably. The big thing for him is to just get back out on the field, get with the guys, break the huddle, do the team stuff, gradually get back in the flow, call the play in the huddle, make his throws. Today was a rough day because it was so windy, but overall just feeling the pocket converge on him and make the throws under duress. It was good for him today.”

      On if he is proceeding as if Colt McCoy is the starting quarterback this week:
      “Oh, yeah. Yeah.”

      On linebacker Trent Murphy balancing his pass rush ability with avoiding penalties:
      “Yeah, that’s the case with a lot of defensive players. They get over-anxious and they work so hard to get to the quarterback and they get there ...

      Forget ‘7 Minute Abs’, I mean, I’d recommend you go with the 6 minute version anyway. I believe there are 7 crucial actions the Washington Redskins must take if they are to revisit their former days of glory and return to a winning tradition.

      Let Griffin be Griffin. We’ve heard it before and we get it. RG3 is reckless. He plays with wild abandon. He can’t slide. He won’t slide. RG-Knee. The ‘Pistol’, ‘Read Option’, running threat QB offense is dead. Griffin can only survive by becoming a pocket passer. Balderdash I say! Conventional wisdom isn’t always the ...

      So....Dallas is playing their best football in years, the Redskins are playing musical chairs with QBs and generally underacheiving and making way more
      mistakes than we fans would like to see and it's a MNF game and Dallas fans are generally optimistic.

      Generally, but there is worry underneath that optimism-perhaps surprisingly-but worry nonetheless.

      "Men, this stuff that some sources sling around about Washington wanting out of this war, not wanting to fight, is a crock of bullshit. Redskins love to fight, traditionally. All real Redskins love the sting and clash of battle. You are here today for three reasons. First, because you are here to defend your team and your teammates.
