CSN Washington dot com. Welcome back rob -- joined our CSN Washington dot com Redskins insider tar heel this year it's heart. The seven game win streak has been remarkable it's been a lot of fun to be around answers there's a lot of different reasons why they've. Played better over the street -- if you had to pick the one thing that jumps out you it's been the biggest difference what would have been it would have to be the improvement on defense. I mean you know before the break they're averaging a with a 27. Points a game. They've been yielding twenty points a game since the break. That would rank eighth in the NFL right now I mean they would be one of the elite did deacons is right now. So all the adjustments that Jim has it needs dramatically but he also seemed to make the players sleep better someone coaxed him up during that break. I don't know if it was getting away. And maybe look at themselves -- but you look you look at DeAngelo Hall right now vs the player we saw on the first that two different players. I mean you know Jim has whatever he did he's he's the reason for the turnaround I library I think RG three deservedly so gets all the headlines Alfred Morris -- that Dallas game. But the way the defense has stepped up I don't know if it's confidence that the game plan and -- But absolutely it's been like two different teams out there. You know to take -- we can't look past takeaways during this winning streak. They have twelve takeaways I mean that's wouldn't be -- does. And when you have a very good offense and -- it's ranked fourth in scoring and your costly taking the ball away from the other team and giving it back to RG three sophomores. You're gonna win more games you're gonna lose or in their case you're gonna keep winning you know so. The takeaways have been. Absolutely isn't. We always talk about it is is a good team lead to a loose team is what this team lead to a good team it's a chicken and the egg -- that you always gonna debate that. This team is -- though. Every week in the locker laughing and joking music on dancing trying to make into the lap during interviews. Do you see that as part of a confident team that. Understands. They're good because they prepare well I like you know wild like it because there's consistency. They have won seven games in a row and there's nothing different about that locker room on Tuesday but Wednesday -- it's the scene every single week and you're right they are loose I mean we were in there on Wednesday. And Robert Griffin the third disclose -- past the media singing. -- you know and accommodating it's not well knows it wasn't up RG three yeah -- But I mean it just speaks to how loose the room is and you know October the capitals for a number of years. And every time around the playoffs -- would -- very much and coach tightened up and -- that -- tightened up. And just never worked out one it didn't because they changed the way they prepared to change the Whitney talk to one another. I just like the fact they have players that either even keel and not much has changed Seattle is out in the Pacific northwest we don't see that much on TV we don't know much about them other than Russell Wilson. Marshawn Lynch that you start. During your research and you look at almost every level out there loaded this is a really good football team. Absolutely nothing really jumps off the page your comparing stats is that defense. Fifteen point three points a game I mean that's almost two points better than the 49ers. They've got some big cornerbacks they got parking safeties it's a big guys up front that just gobble up running backs. I mean it's gonna be a challenge now. The chess match is going to be intriguing to it to watch unfold. Because. They haven't played each other this year you know also the Seahawks they're seeing the pistol for the first time. And vice Versa so. You know I'm really looking forward to seeing how things play out but that that Nazi -- defense -- scary yeah everyone's saying around the country this is the most intriguing game of the week and I agree that. Let me ask this before we let you go we've asked we have Kyle Shanahan this you can flip flopped a little bit. If you had to pick one Redskins rookie offensive player of the year. Ten or 46 -- guy you know it would be really tough. But I have to -- Robert Griffin just because the quarterback position is so sophisticated so complicated. You know. Not to take anything away from -- because we've seen is growth we've seen him go from a guy. Who was hesitant back here waiting for a hole to open and now he's so decisively spam is right there one cut -- up the field. His growth has been remarkable but from day one Robert Geathers come into Washington DC this is my team and I look back. Training camp to her when Brian -- scooped up that fumble and start running the other way during eleven on eleven scrimmage. And only person who turnaround and sprinted down the field was -- third -- keel out at the goal line. He's that that was his moment of seeing guys that salary and do it now that I'm here I'm the leader follow. The good thing for Redskins nation. Your shoes and got argent and now from Martin's going to be together for a long long time great point for tar heel this year I'm rob grown to expect you. 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. Especially short window when there's a lot of mental stuff going on as well and you know planet waiting game very soon so it's it's really not training camp it's it's the season and we're playing. Fourth most teams have the coaches. Been there already. This week will be review. But Adam's going to have to teach the system here the next week or so. But one of the things of that and so it was the third and lots of teams with new players and most players you're gonna have to learn. Their new teams systems as well.

  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.
