CSN Washington dot com. -- -- Texas so my surrounding the decision to keep RG three in the game last night she can of course. Taken a lot of heat what are Griffin's teammates those saying about today's news. That's funny Julie well when we talk to them on Monday morning did not yet heard the news that a Robert Griffin the third to go for further test in Pensacola Florida doctor James Andrews further tests on that injured knee so the debate rages on for the foreseeable future about whether or not Robert Griffin the third should have been pulled from the game on Sunday night here's whats not up for debate. His teammates have no issues for the Robert staying in. As long as it could. Just the nature of how long the season goes I mean if you don't get that choice because you're not playing. You know and it's an advantage to have respect for. Have a child did something in my situation just because this. He's our quarterback who -- on quarterback. If he tangle at 60% he's been half of the guys out there that Soledad. You know this this and and you know he's -- -- run and that's what three weeks four weeks in. He's still hard -- You wait for somebody tell you can't play him play on because -- -- up to us and we've got -- out. Through anything pretty much. It was hard for me just to pull myself well but I knew I was an ultimate team and for Robert he still was hoping the team out there. You always going to be. He knows it and then gets to get as -- To stay competitive this thing and knows -- yet they want to compete you would be a part of it. Especially in this room -- you know develop they got a city. -- I can't. Just took everything is cool so so special they wouldn't be a part of. No question that's the end all and bring in now Redskins -- -- -- this year let's start with Robert Griffin the third and well they put on a brave face today. There were certainly in the body language says a lot and you saw a lot of that there in the locker last night's tragic I know you're out on the sat outside industries and yes. I I -- RG three's every moment after that game. And as -- his teammates were getting showered and dressed in doing their interviews RG three sat. That is quietly at his locker stall still in this what he -- are staring straight ahead at the wall you can tell not only was the loss weighing on his mind. Probably something else and maybe you know it was the extent of that need not knowing but I will say this I mean I've seen a lot of catastrophic knee injuries and in my career. And he didn't walk out of there with a big to -- drawn that way so I'm not saying its reason for hope but you know this is another observation from the locker room. Certainly this franchise and in my experience at it that the people get it was just that people give us briefer for drafting Kirk cousins in the fourth round well. That's picks seems to be a nice move by these guys for a -- to what he did against Cleveland and what he may do in the future. You know. Mike Shanahan and company are starting look like geniuses I mean if you don't maybe wasn't part of the master plan a -- gonna take a high risk high reward type of quarterback you definitely want a very sure handed Smart. -- -- young capable quarterback there to back him up I mean if you look at the do you look at the Eagles situation. With our Michael Vick he gets hurt it's turned in the holes and and it's a big drop off there's not that enormous drop off from Marty street -- -- -- even though they have. Vastly different styles of play. The fellas left today they had their physicals and left the -- left rather quickly but they also left with a sense of urgency to come back and some guys said at any cost. In particular the guy we just heard from Theres a hole. Absolutely DeAngelo Hall said he would even consider restructuring his contract that's that's how exciting he is about the future of this franchise. I mean you know his cap hit next year's seven point five million dollars that's a lot of money. But you know what if it. But the Redskins and get to DeAngelo Hall the play in the second half as opposed the one that it struggled in the first half maybe they're able to work out of a deal where you jumped three million dollars less and if he's happy and the team is happy and right now that team is -- waiting as are we for the news on -- to third and that and the injury again they'll be in Pensacola on Tuesday. Then we all. -- -- -- All right thank you gentlemen yes we appreciate it. CSN Washington dot com.

  2. Gormley: Caps needed time to learn Oates' system

    Mon, 11 Feb 2013

    CSN Washington dot com. So chalk a lot of players told us about the team meeting they had on Saturday. They said that it seemed a little early to have a a team meeting has pars early in the season what's the significance of the timing of that meaning. Well the first thing they need to do is learn the system you know we talked to Matt Hendricks about that today. What they need to do was needed two weeks two to three weeks to get to know what they're doing on the ice before they can start challenging each other in the room and I think. They need to get to that point. Once they did. And they looked at the standings is that playing good isn't good enough if we're not winning. We have to start doing the little things and that's what I what I think we saw last game they sort of blocking shots he started getting. Into each other is. Into the opponents' faces hard work shifts which is something that they weren't known quite in the beginning of this season. They're very talented team but they need to out work teams and we started seeing that next game and it carried over sit there. So how difficult is it for head coach like Oates who says. We were playing the right all take us playing the right way even if we lose how hard is it for him not to look at the standings and keep telling the players that when the players and we want to win. Well it's really hard I mean when when you tell media members that you can lose ten games in a row if you're playing the right way. Management hears that and says let's not go that far and I think that's what he wants and if he wants this team to build and their building. And I said this during that streak. They're playing well I mean end and that's a hard thing to convince players up when they're losing. So I think once he realized he had reached that point where they got it. They got the system and the players had to take it from there and the players are telling them challenging themselves saying we know the system. Let's put it on the ice let's start building up the wins and it has to continue that's the you know we'll see on the three does well back CSN Washington dot com.
