She -- in Washington dot com. Now joining us live from Redskins park is Tariq -- this year tar. Redskins setting sit there and go for the playoffs here they are set to get Cedric Griffin back after a four game suspension. Can he provide much do you think health wise after sitting out for a month.

You know this defense has played so much better robbed during this seven game winning streak. They're averaging about twenty points a game which would be eighth. In the entire NFL do extrapolate that over the course of the entire season. And if they get Cedric Griffin back that's going to be huge boost he's arguably their most physical. Player back there on the among the defensive backs he was also played at a very high level -- Mike CNN right before he was suspended. We talked to Josh Wilson and fellow quarterback early today he said quote. It's like adding another dog to the fight.

They can use all the dogs they can get as they get ready for Seattle meanwhile RG three last night clearly he's not a 100%. But we're laughing during the game because he's running around basically on one leg. And knowing can catch of what did you think of his performance and how healthy will he be for Sunday.

You know if I had to put a percentage on it rob might say he's probably somewhere in the 85 to 90% range when we talked to Mike Shanahan earlier today he said he still bothered a bit by the brace on his right knee and like you said anyone who watched this -- yesterday's game it -- it still doesn't have that first that we saw. Before the knee injury that said he still went for 63 yards on six carries and when Shanahan was asked about the need. He said yeah I was really disappointed in my quarterback's performance yesterday portions joke and it hit point five average. Pretty good right.

Not too bad and winning and NFC east title as a religion and also not too bad Tarik -- this year thanks and my extra time and happy new year. CSN Washington dot com.

We'll have only a matter of days to install his new system. There's a lot of unknowns right now. A we just talked about all the conditioning and how long we have we officially known all along we have for a time period so we have a bunch of scenarios and obviously with the trainers the strength coach we talk a lot about. some guys to catch up.

  3. #WizardsTalk: Beal's coming out party

    Tue, 8 Jan 2013

    CSN Washington dot com. It's what went to Wizards talk I'm brain takes adorned with our Wizards insider frank Hanrahan for season Washington dot com. Craig this is a crazy game tonight against Oklahoma City Thunder. Just 24 hours after getting blown out by Miami the Wizards undermanned with inane playing Jordan Crawford that playing. Put up the Stanley wanna wind tonight at nine victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder but in this game we really so rarely deals come to an NBA moment. He hit the game winner to give the Wizards an improbable victory let's be honest. Other Wizards and flip records they were 524. Tony coming in. It's 45 for the so who would have thought the Bradley Two defenders on Bryant pump fake them out of their shoes and hit a tough it was almost like a one handed jumper he finishes which point 257 from three point range. And really start to see a guy being really comfortable out there. And now he's expected to make that big shot Randy Wittman was his coach saying afterwards. He's the guy now who is becoming the go to player and he proved why would that game winner. And speaking of go players John Lloyd has begun practicing with the Wizards an exhibit. He should make his return within the next two weeks. And the Wizards have about four days off into the next game against Atlanta on Saturday so what can we expect when Walt does return to the lineup. And what can we expect more wall and Gil backcourt. I was is where you stole my thunder wanted to and was his beat Oklahoma City. It's gonna give Bradley a much better ability to step out catch a ball off the penetration from John Wall we talked about. How Bradley stroke is just so fundamentally solid that at some point it will come around after that slow start it has and if you bring John Wall back into the fold. Him being able to get inside and then finding deal. Outside for jumpers that's just gonna help him obviously ball is gonna help everybody when he does return and hopefully fingers crossed to be this weekend against Atlanta. Now one question that we've had within ourselves in the media today was no Kevin Durant is back in town you know is from DC. And Justin who's obviously the biggest star in Washington DC right now but if Kevin Durant were a member of the Wizards. Who would be the bigger star in DC would be the quarterback can RG three. But the Redskins or you know people say that this is a basketball town. Would it be Kevin Durant. I'm a little impartial and I grew appear on a basketball fan first and foremost will be tough. The other to lean towards Kevin dread just simply because he is a hometown guy. I think I think if he was here it's a big if and probably will never happen I think is to be will be to the rafters every single night because of what he did in those. Those last four minutes on the he put the Oklahoma City Thunder on his back and almost given the chance it was so long ago. With the rent. Put my here.
