      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On injuries:
      “[Chris] Carter is going to need surgery for his fractured fibula. [Byron] Marshall has a hamstring [injury] and that will be day-to-day – we’ll see the severity of it here pretty soon. Zach Brown is going to get an MRI on his foot. [Ryan] Grant’s got an ankle [injury] – he’ll be day-to-day. [Samaje] Perine was out with an illness and he should be OK.”

      On processing what happened yesterday:
      “It’s a tough pill to swallow, but we have to swallow it and we have to move on to Arizona, try to put our best foot forward and give these guys something to sink their teeth into from a preparation standpoint. Make sure we get the guys available and get those guys ready to play who are available, and play them and get them ready to play. From a coaching standpoint, we’ve got to do ...

      Hello once again. I am back to do another blognostication. A reminder from that first blognostication: “As many of you know, I was not too kind to the Redskins in the BBQ seasonal predictions. The prognostication called for a 2-14 record, but that win total prediction was bested after the San Francisco game. Perhaps that was a bit too rough, but I looked at a brutal schedule in the middle of the season and now that particular ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On if there’s hope for TE Jordan Reed to return:
      “There’s always hope [laughter]… I’ll leave that to the trainers and Jordan. We’ll see how he does.”

      On holding a brief practice today:
      “Yeah, we had a couple days off there. It was just good to get them some individual work, get them back on the field, compete a little bit – two-minute, red zone, third down – some areas that we’ve had some trouble in, and it was a good day.”

      On if there are any plans to shut down injured players:
      “No, we don’t have any plans to shut anybody down unless it is a season-ending injury, and that’s something the trainers ...

      I love Brian Mitchell's post-game comments (TIRADE) about the outcome of the Dallas game and the Redskins demeanor as a team.

      Regarding special teams, he raised the obvious question of why a unit that has struggled on returns and coverage for years and has had some key FG misses on makeable tries in crunch time, continues to employ a coach in Ben Kotwica that has VERY LITTLE NFL experience, at least of the winning variety.

      He was what special teams coach in NY with ...

      Last night’s no show on national TV against a hated rival was a particularly rough one to watch.

      The seas were angry last night my friends. The waves were 50 feet high, our little boat showed it was full of holes, not up to the beating of the harsh and unforgiving waters. And in the end, even George Clooney died.

      Contrary to popular belief, the current Redskins almost never go out and flat out suck or lay an egg. They fight, they compete, and more often than not are usually within striking distance with the game on the line. The team of the past 3 years has not been highly prone to turnovers and (if we're being fair) has rarely failed to show up at all, or gifted opponents a certain win. They have not.

      Last night - they did all of those things. ...

      Redskins vs Cowboys. Thursday Night Football.

      Injuries and precarious placement standings aside, it’s still a big deal when these teams meet. At least it is to Redskins fans. So, given the opportunity to blog this thing, seems like some “analysis” is in order.

      Rather than solemnly run through a dozen or more angles, I’m going to winnow it down to these few. Because, well, they’re the ones I kept coming back to this ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On injuries:
      “The only change will be Trent Williams was limited today. Everything else will stay the same and you will get the injury report here shortly.”

      On if game statuses will be announced tomorrow:
      “That’s tomorrow, yeah.”

      On the status of TE Jordan Reed’s hamstring:
      “Same. [The] same, day-to-day. We are just trying to take it day by day and he’s trying to get stronger in the weight room, just taking it slow. That’s the only thing we can do. Your guess is as good as mine, but obviously there is an issue there otherwise I would like to think he would be further along now, but we just have got to get him healthy.”

      On if T Trent Williams will be a game-time decision: ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On injuries:
      “Did not participate was [Montae] Nicholson, concussion; Chase Roullier, hand; Jordan Reed, hamstring; Trent Williams, knee; Terrell McClain, toe. Limited were Zach Brown, shoulder/Achilles; [Matt] Ioannidis, hand/ankle; [Morgan] Moses, knee/ankle; [Brandon] Scherff, knee; [Martrell] Spaight, ankle; Ty Nsekhe, core muscle. Full were [Jamison] Crowder, [Anthony] Lanier and [Samaje] Perine.”

      On DL Jonathan Allen’s progress:
      “He’s coming along good. He’s right on schedule to return when he’s allowed to return. Hopefully he can start practice when we get back. That’ll be six weeks I believe, for two weeks, and then hopefully he’ll be ready to go – Week 15, I think.

      On if Allen’s foot has healed correctly:
      “Yeah. Yeah, he’s coming along good.”

      On what the defense has missed without Allen on the field:
      “Just another strong, ...

      Howdy folks. As I sit here suckin up the FL sunshine, and watching my team take devastating blows each game, it’s not tough to figure out this upcoming game after such a loss to the Saints. We had them by the short hairs, and a third and one call for an off tackle run cost us the game. Gruden showed lots of balls with a couple of plays, so why off tackle instead a keeper or just straight up the gut has me baffled. Fourth and 6, and you go for ...
