CSN Washington dot com. The status of RG three and the Redskins finished strong answer last but certainly not least kicker he's that this is three and out. We're talking hottest topics of the week I'm Jennifer Allen might -- outlets here and Stanley got let's talk about RG three. He practiced today it was limited dusty place and it vs the Vikings start let's start with you. You know I I think he is gonna play it if you listen to what he said it was -- -- coach Mike Shanahan said -- obviously. The final determinations will be made by the medical staff and by independent neurologist. But it just sounded to me like he's going to be he's gonna do everything is an hour ago you wouldn't like it's. It's that you know I I think barring him sometimes I think it was a derailing nine was tell us locker again today. Concussions can be strange you can be fine afterwards fine for a few days that point all the sudden Thursday Friday -- flares up on yourself. Barring something like that happening. -- -- -- -- You know keep an -- game even if he passed the test anyway don't take a chance there and -- can take chance with them you know she could he could go out. And -- and engine out of contention on the first play he can do that he sat out a month and dad so I you know I think they're gonna go out there. I think he's gonna learn from and learn from what happened in on from there. Yeah and he said he had learned he's gonna learn from what happened moving forward something tells me we're going to be talking about RG three. And knees on quick hits every week -- Let's move onto another topic the Redskins. I'm going into the fourth quarter had so far this season there either tied. Or out ahead and yet they've been outscored in the fourth quarter how can they finish strong. More what happened they've been able. But and it's not you know -- pass on Lorenzo Alexander about that this morning and he couldn't really give me a solid answer. You know the one thing that I got it figured out he is actually -- they have to figure out but if you if you look at it almost doesn't matter what sport it is teams. As they come together as a core group of a team comes the other they have to learn how to finish games and it's it's kind of nebulous it's hard to explain. But it's something that has to happen. And when it does happen it's it's noticeable teams we see it right away. And right now they just don't know how to close games I don't know maybe some of it is conditioning if it's mentality I don't know what it is but they certainly are not as good in the fourth quarters they -- and other parts in it yet and I mean it. For the first reached quarters quarters each each each of the first record. An aggregate they've outscored teams in every one of those in the fourth court they've been outscored by a margin morning more than 21. I mean you you you can't have that mean and guess they have managed to. Built enough police to where they won two of those games the visiting team can be right -- right playoff contention great if they finished if they can finish again. Last year you know whose team is supposed to be building last year. -- outscored by sixty points in the fourth quarter and used it just it's something it did it is new it is and you know it is and some minutes. Just just popped up this year whether it's conditioning you know you were talking earlier this is soft training camps may be. You know -- Shanahan is is not known for him in the toughest training camps out there. I'm just saying it it you know get out there and I'd also could be talent. I mean -- -- know the more talented more veteran more seasoned teams seem to play utterly Ollie -- -- amazing -- there are certain yet exactly. Mean it could be a factor yet talent talent as rice and cream does rise to the top about fourth quarters especially. Ray and -- union at that point Richmond not making the playoffs anytime soon until they solve this problem another problem they had -- the Eagles. Me you know let's talk about every balding door of the kickers on kite or -- what they -- another kicker and the way. I'm about to -- right kicking it might sound fun at them in my tickets I'm very rich let's start with you. Well you know they had nineteen kickers sense not believe since chipped long. Is right now. But it's. It's. We're. Wherever. -- -- -- about the possibility images bring him back branding that -- And you know what he basically said was we saw enough that Graham you know right -- know that he's not. You know you know Shanahan is a proud man and -- and picked Billy Cundiff. And four in the let him go after only five games and he clearly had zero confidence in him Bryan and also -- mean. I don't say this move smacked of desperation. But they went after a 25 -- it was never kicked a field goal in NFL ray what's his game strong legs get a good pedigree obviously with the best. Kicker in -- lots. Yeah you steal way. But again we were just talking about how you know inexperience can come back the plate two in the fourth quarter. If it is a -- those the next game you know they're the Vikings need to closing game -- to come back he's never done this huge. -- field goal I'll hit it to be a very tough situation for him. We talked to him this morning on current format and he protected himself was very you know confident and ready to seize the moment but we won't know until he's actually out there to match. Right exactly but you know there there is a first time for everybody there is -- -- through his first. And I sat that long you gotta get these guys that shot they are not get any better until they can't get that first knock it in and I think the reason you know the younger guys yes -- -- in -- -- was in here Josh -- Who said you know chain and Heatley and very directly to their age and getting out there. Those are guys who might be able to put it commanded on the problem for this season you know hopefully format can be that -- going -- -- wanted you know to be. But decided that he wasn't. Where you -- I have a question for you guys because we're talking about experience and some something tells me kicking isn't that strenuous on you where. I would think that someone a little older with more experience would be the better way to -- now. You know what it's it's it's mental I think a lot of it is just like goaltender in -- closer in baseball. 50% or more of being a kicker in the NFL. Is being able to stay focused and block out all the distractions block out missed it from the previous week which I was we saw it kind of was not able to do I mean. If you in truth east could block out the kicking missed in Baltimore in the finals last year that was still haunting punting just part of the reason he is no longer here you know that it was 31 yards and he missed one didn't do. They're throwing -- is Bernard so absolutely that's that I that I -- Well hopefully -- sticky situation. Hikes might -- an anymore because he's sick of talking Friday said that on Wednesday. Guys thank you so much for your time thank you for watching keep it locked and CSN Washington dot com for all your Redskins -- CSN Washington dot com.
