CSN Washington dot com. Knew we had some downs and some ups in the game. -- the way we finishes than where the guys stepped up and made some plays at the end of the game was a very impressed obviously needed. There's some big game for us you know coming back into our stadium after winning three games. We knew when you get to one today was obviously a platoon in a whole lot so. I'm really proud of the way the guys playing. Mike do you have any indication of how serious roberts' injury as I really don't twice it's sore right now he wanted to go back in the game which is a good sign. I was a positive. -- but I don't know to him. Like the designed run for Kirk cousins they're not something we see every day what went into that decision. But got some options on the play. You really don't know what defense are going to be and but we didn't think they'd be expected to do so when we got right defense and -- that a great job in contention. Like we've obviously talked a lot about Robert now for this year your rookie class but Richard Crawford Kirk cousins made it frankly is of the day much talk about their efforts there frank. Yeah you always want to have to yours and you keep -- quarterback for her Josh Morgan is on his way out right now but the set.

He's done that since he's been here you know truly tough and it's second and third team quarterback and not get very many reps that you expect them to go in game situations this and play as a starter. So his preparation has been great you know throughout the whole year. You know he's very tough and everything anyone in there and thinness of the center it plays the way he played Richard Crawford. -- an opportunity we thought he did a great job and precision by catching the ball and getting them all of field. We Solomon of the whole game then we thought. Has been our best interest of our team to give them an opportunity. As well Niles Paul and obviously -- and it really took advantage of the opportunity today.

Coach going back to Robert is MRI tonight it will be tomorrow and then also just your conversation with them. After he came out to the second time did did you just feel like at that point it was it was due to -- anything else they that he could like.

Seeing that he was hurt in the second time we came out and -- you could see his face and I -- talk to the doctor and now. It felt like -- best interest for him not to come back again but he wanted to he really came from. Going back can he was going to get out there so that's a great sign. So hopefully. Tomorrow I'll be negative. From that moment eighty took a hit until when you found -- to take him out. But what she -- on him and I really I can't and we're seeing the house I do know and I knew get hit you could see a little bit on the replay and it was hurting the first time but. -- came -- he came on the sideline. Kirk took one play. I knew you wanna go back and after that second hit in the way. His body language Rosenthal as best interest not to government can. With both teams being so close of proximity it was a Smart accelerating than any other game trade -- the season. But beyond me honestly we don't get a chance. Spent a lot of time doing it's many times -- reason AFC compared NFC it's always you know within your division. But I've always you're kind of so much respect for the organization what they've accomplished and how hard they play and you know how many how many times they've always went home last how many years you know. And so that was a good challenge for us because we knew performed very well coached team Tina played extremely hard to find a way to win you know. What was so special for us.

Make that -- for -- her first year guy Steve ice water in his fans what's his situation. I'm glad he's on -- football -- that's for sure you know he's. He's made everything.

And nearly game -- game on front of the team and communities. Doesn't surprise me hell hole he handled himself. The reason why we went back in there I hit at the end everybody was ready he was not. He already was there on the other side I'm not sure where they're at so I'm gonna keep doing any normal timing for fuel goes somewhere around there pulling him. I think the players -- not pulling the ball well Nicklaus who. Might might you can you talk about -- curt being prepared for what does that say about him to go in that situation. That's to be prepared for kind of stay poised to make the throws that he did. I thought he did that all through precision I thought he really take him out of his opportunities when he was in there. You know I got a lot of confidence in -- and I got a lot of confidence in Rex you know for me to. Put -- in that situation at this second team quarterbacks or his career he kind of gives you an idea. Well I think of all you know -- has been great to us Robert Kirk you know from day one you know. Learn the system together you know going -- working every day you get a chance for a couple quarterbacks that. He'll start from scratch and learn the system and they push each other and really support each other so can -- two rookies and that type of environment. CSN Washington dot com.

As how's your knee and he said well having been through ACL tear before this does not feel that way. He had just come from the extra room where he said X rays were negative so nothing is broken.

  2. Cousins has his number called, delivers for the Redskins

    Sun, 9 Dec 2012

    CSN Washington dot com. I gotta be honest I looked at my producer Gary Carter you there so I think Kirk cousins can make a play here but then you look up at second and pointing. You're up against the 93 vaunted Ravens defense what were you thinking when your number got called. Well I think you try not to focus on those external factors you try to just focus on your job and my job was. To run the play call to go through my progression. Is so I did that but certainly benefit professor fears call it. The recovery came in made some tremendous plays on on one leg more lesson. You know just the the next is trying to do to be somewhat of a robot and just do what to do. I know this is what you're job is what you're born to do but how tough is it to walk in your cold haven't played haven't really. Done much of anything in a long time to get up and that physically make plays. Is typical inside deal I think I can show myself as a much better quarterback if I was getting reps all week and if I was playing from the start of the game to the finish but. This is apathy I have been last year ready and is the best I can do right now and I'm a control what I can control. And fortunately today things worked in my favor. When you're practicing during the week game planning are you. Literally thinking about when that moment comes I have to make sure I'm on my point is they need to make plays. Exactly I have to be ready to go there's there's no excuses you can't say adding get reps you can't what was warm SN uses the NFL complaints so. My job is to mentally stay locked in aware that your piece all game long trying to hear the plays and just. From my limited vanish. My in my limited perspective from the sideline tried to read the defense that I would do need to play and I think that does certainly well I have to going. Look at the pump fake to Santana maybe drew a defensive back on the on the touchdown to hear what excuses. You know I that we didn't see much didn't really try to pump and really feel like I had anything in. Playoff instincts I tried to take off and I guess turn my robot off a little bit and try to make something happen off schedule and Pierre did a great job on covering on his round and it wasn't off schedule played in a their favor. I think RG three was on the field everyone would have predicted quarterback draw. Not so much and Kirk cousins on there somewhere that was it your choice did you have a choice on that what you think with the play as well. Cushion and passing is done a great job trying to get my. Comfort level a certain plays but truth be told I'm new to this offense summit trust him. He's a phenomenal job and Robert you've seen now with the plays that he's on the successful positions but Robert but. He's also the same in me and down you know the more I'm able to get to know him office more than dialogue we can have in the right play called that. In that situation was tremendous play call and I just had XQ what what was called. Again what did you see the defense did you know at any moment of his players can work. covers and felt like as long as the blocks were made and I could you know move quickly enough I wasn't going to be Robert but as long as I could giddy up to me I I should be able to score and fortunately we had some great blocks made in. You know I'm not gonna get there quite as fast as Robert does so I'm sure made a little more nerve racking for the sideline to watch but. We found a way to get in and spike the ball and enjoyed a moment. Speaking of a guy with a limited minutes in limited reps Richard Crawford comes in as the new punt returner. It's pretty remarkable play he made. They're a great get north and south anytime your punt return to get any kind of yards back is a bonus for us in and so first joint testimony get north and south and he's been doing that and obviously when you when you can get north to south to split the defense. It opens up a lot of holes the scenes in and he did that in down. It was a phenomenal player made myself a lot easier hit the ball off down the stretch did you look at as he walked off those that he couldn't beat the punter to take it to the house staff I you know what I thought he had I just assumed he had turnaround how Robert how we had won an inside at tackle in the OK at least he is that they handed off so we found a way to get the lead and then mr. automatic car you know what I just stay away from the guy let him do is staying. And just I don't want to jinx anything. Well you certainly got tremendous performance congratulations and good luck for number was called next week okay thinking but CSN Washington dot com.

  3. Kerrigan: "We always make it interesting"

    Sun, 9 Dec 2012

    CSN Washington dot com. Get through the defense that you just quarterback talk you watched him. Give it everything it possibly had to that ability. That's failures but the allotment it. Now he's got a lot of occurred to me you we also have you looked it looked pretty rough put me. He's able to come back him he'd drive but you know like he said it. He I was a mature decision for him to say you know I can't give the best you know the chance that team the best chance to win right now. Came out Noah hope and hope suffered serious that your defense obviously. We had to stop Baltimore's second half coming down the stretch gave the office covered. Good feeling about what's companies have. a lot of confidence I mean we did well first half defensively put. You know second half came out and we're what do you get a lot of has some good plays on first and second down which which allowed them to be in some third and longer situations and allowed us to get after the quarterback a little more. You found your vote in the second half. You've bull rush you get back which you use your tight inside. If you dominated. It periods of time where I saw you. Like I used to see you tell everybody put the attention on you what was the difference and that was it just who will have to wait five or evade the guy will do because. But bought a couple of has dial up some really good pressures and allowed me to come free and com notes that from that went out of them is the easy play at that point You know I think collectively rear of we came out with a different mindset the second half that we had to stop the run we still of yardage we ultimately kept about the ends for the most part with the exception. Is decade alone festivities thank you. In that bag of wean you off at ever have one that you could just block them beat the hell out of the a little word but at the you know. Got myself Trevor really we get all the while also not well. You know if you could just go ball with little wait it into the got a week you know everyone's been saying the same thing. Yeah like you know consensus ever like when fans live comfortably enough like now we always make it interesting but you know as long to find a way to win and part of it and I'll think it would on the didn't talk about the. Yeah the second half with a different mindset and as stopping the run. Does the way that physically have to do with the change in scheme with the changes technique. I've read that the mental thing you've got to do better first and second down how does it physically occur. Know guys being more. Conscious of their gaps stayed in their gaps not mean they're they're good offensive line they got a really good very good big physical offensive lineman. I think we have what we kind of had a better sense of what they're gonna do in the second half that allowed us to. Play faster. CSN Washington dot com.

  4. Alexander: "We're finding ways to win now"

    Sun, 9 Dec 2012

    CSN Washington dot com now we about Lorenzo Alexander. Does everything for this franchise that. couple years stories parking cars to offered for guys that he's vastly changes more than a Oprah Winfrey and ha ha ha a didn't pick her good round. God and all day because just heard your your young quarterback Kirk cousins gave nobody had become made it and get it done just. It is it the feeling walking out of the locker vote. You guys made the plays you had to make it or to get this though it was great. I think that's the biggest thing that's kind of change culturally as far as going out to play football with fun ways to win now in years past we were playing sixty minutes it always find a way to lose. And not you know we had a fumble and you know a copy of the battle went with the other way when they reviewed it we could talk about it going and if I was going to tell us don't live it was in the game. Well gorgeous game I thought the special teams have been decided factor in the game and run you all going to get what we got one definitely to coach What you noticed about here did you see some of that in Crawford in Atlanta. Almost definitely both both got very decisive they catch the ball. They can't he'll make one cut in that he's he's going to where he hit he's also bigger than what I thought on he's 62 to fifteen those are tackled well he did a great job of up his blocks. In his inaugural you know I'll let you have to have the places where it was kicking a couple of times about got to set the tone. Don't know but it was great that I left for Richard Crawford all. I think you could get off all in all game really like three are returns be happy to close them left we gave a break it you 6020 68. Thought I gave my heart I gave a hard time though he could not run upon us and I think both walk off walk off touchdown right indicate that settlement money. That's why aren't we don't part of I gotta go our state and compare back that's what I look like I. Like a big gorilla. And that everything is fine Internet reports of their fine but that you guys behind him if I need to ask about it or. Is that if you're on and I don't I seems like everything we watched specialties split coverage you're number 97 laid on top of the opponents for turner more often than not. what goes through your mind what is your mindset running down the field I read it. You know I think I get it but there's a great job of what you've seen all the returns they have what we need to make. And I got a great job coaching this Vick beat you cannot just you know watch it to do my homework read guys on the a lot of it is only a lot if it looks now to to get a All the guys on the team now Chris Wilson Reed Doughty. Also Creighton. Pressure on we can always doubled TV you know and our replay it five hole I don't like to hit because theatre Atlanta as well. I think about good technique that we could tackle that you made today on special teams what good technique did you execute couldn't get a good. I've ever for that as they years they hear us talk about it technique but what is good technique what does that look like what's the actual technique you'd probably tackle. Didn't have the there and that they can attack. All. Well lot of it is all kick off is obviously to a little lucky kind of If you want to get up on you know group willing to run. It is the unsettled and not say it is blocking. And being out is that great and the different grip across the face. How would you rate of return didn't square back up and then finally started exactly this I can't you can bet it is because there is no break if they asserted that. Yeah yeah yeah. Can rush the and similar it is personal you know you can't get off blocks in garbage fire returner is basically can be here I love your defense. And a couple of times you fake blitz and drop into coverage yeah I want to see you blitz like that so getting bright Golf and great job which I do that you're doing the calling me out when I walked up there with they're not seven on seven the roster spots lot of you know this Gaza walk up on the line. And what they do they the I notably discovered reason that's got to get out there like a puppet like we did. We don't get is that a lot of drama with the what was it. CSN Washington dot com.
