  1. ALL- PSA time here. We're already aware of these random issues & looking into it. No need to keep sending PMs.
  2. It was a steakum. A rather unpressive Streakum at that. I’ve made better at home.
  3. Quoted & respond to from Chrome in desktop mode
  4. FYI All of this is your fault for continuous ****ing about the security certificate.
  5. You'd think the damn Mods around here would have a sticky thread in the main forum about something this big. ****ing slackers.

  8. December 12, 2018 REDSKINS MAKE ROSTER MOVES LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have made the following roster moves: The Redskins signed the following player to their practice squad: OL Roubbens Joseph The Redskins placed the following player on the Practice Squad/Injured list: C Casey Dunn
  9. December 12, 2018 Head Coach Jay Gruden On injuries: "Did not participate [Tony] Bergstrom, knee and ankle; [Ryan] Anderson, hamstring; [Josh] Doctson, concussion protocol; [Colt] McCoy, fibula; [Jordan] Reed, ankle and foot; [Ty] Nsekhe, knee; [Matt] Ioannidis, shin. Limited were [Jamison] Crowder, knee and ankle; Shaun Dion Hamilton, shoulder; [Adrian] Peterson, shoulder; [Chase] Roullier, knee; [Morgan] Moses, ankle; [Trent] Williams, thumb and wrist." On LB Mason Foster’s leaked Instagram messages: "We talked to Mason about it. I don’t know when it was exactly, but it was a private message. The guy I guess screenshotted it, which is I guess against the code of private messages on screenshots. I know what Mason is, I know what he means to this football team, what he’s meant to this football team, and anything he said in a personal message was personal and I really don’t take anything from it. I do, however, disagree with that guy posting a private message out on social media. He broke a code there that I don’t agree with. As far as Mason, I have nothing but respect for him as a person and a player." On the details of the Instagram message: "I really don’t even care. It’s a private message. I don’t know when it happened. I know Mason and how hard he’s worked and how hard he plays. I know he wouldn’t say anything publicly to do that. That was a private deal. He could’ve been messing around. I don’t know the intent of that message, I don’t really care." On if the message exposes a bigger issue with the defense: "No, not at all." On filling the leadership void without QB Alex Smith: "It’s hard to put your figure on exactly what. I just think he’s just always been very accountable for his actions, very predictable in the way he shows up to work every day. He’s a great teammate. You lose somebody like that it obviously has an impact on the field and off the field." On others filling the leadership void: “I think some guys stepped up in his absence for a little bit. Colt [McCoy] tried to and then he got hurt right away. But you know that’s the responsibility of the next guy. Mark [Sanchez] did a good job trying to step up and take on some of the roles of quarterback. Trent Williams has always been there for the guys and Morgan Moses and some of the veteran guys we’ve had here. Vernon Davis, Jamison Crowder those guys have also stepped up offensively and had a little bit of a voice.” On evaluating S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix’s performance and if S Monte Nicholson will have more playing time: "I think everybody in general needs to step up on both sides of the ball and special teams and coaches and all that stuff. But as far as Ha Ha is concerned, he’s done some good things. There are a couple plays out there that would probably be viewed as a poor angle or what have you and it may be true. But I like Ha Ha as a player, I like him as a person, I like the way he works. I think he’s going to get better and better within the defense and just understanding the depths and techniques that we’re playing with he’s going to get better. As far as Monte is concerned we have not lost faith in Monte at all. I mentioned it the other day I think there might be a place where he might have a package or two where he can get back on the field." On QB Josh Johnson’s playing experience: "Well he’s played with or against everybody in the league, so for starters he knows everybody on the Jacksonville defense. He knows everybody we’re about to play and is familiar with terminology and systems and coverages and defenses and all that stuff, so that’s a good thing. As far as knowing what to do here I think the big reason we wanted him is because of his familiarity with what we do. Being at Tampa, there’s some carry over and obviously being at Cincinnati for the length of time that he’s with us there’s a lot of carry over that he remembers and can handle. Now it’s a matter of honing in on his skillset and trying to come up with a plan to utilize his strengths." On if there is one factor that has forced losses as of late: "No, not one thing, there are a lot of things. There are a lot of things when talking about losing a football game. If we had it narrowed down to one thing, we’d fix it and be okay. Sometimes it’s defense, sometimes it’s offense, sometimes its special teams, sometimes it’s coaching. It’s a combination; it’s a matter of all of us having to step up in some key players’ absence and playing better. We haven’t done that. We haven’t taken it to the next level of coaching, the next level of playing, the level you have to take it to when you have some injuries and some voids in your offense or defense, or corner, or what have you. It’s up to the young guys to step up, the veterans to lead, and the coaches to coach." On taking a different approach to the practice schedule: "We just have a lack of bodies a little bit but we got a lot of work done today. We had a lengthy walk through and then at practice some good scripted sessions and we had another walk through at the end of practice. We’ll watch film here in a little bit, we just changed it up but we’re going to get all the reps in for Josh [Jackson]." On a possible disconnect between the players and coaches: "We always make an effort to bridge a gap. At the end of the day, like I said, it’s up to the coaches to coach and the players to play. There are some things as coaches that we have to hone in on and make sure we understand the skillset of our players and try to put them in the best positions possible, and then it’s up to them to go out and make some plays. There were some plays to be had that we did not make, there were some things from a coaching standpoint that we have to do better. Anytime you lose a football game, I hate to say it’s the coaches’ fault. It’s never the players fault, it’s a combination of a lot of things and that's areas we need to improve on. At this moment in time we’re 6-7 and half a game out of the playoff race so we have a lot to play for, a lot of reason to try to get together, all of us, and make this thing work." On changing the playbook for QB Josh Johnson: "There is obviously a skill set that he has that you can implement some different things, but not a whole lot, with the guard situation the way it is. We'll have a new starting right guard and Josh didn’t practice today, but we can't change the entire offense in three days. But, there are some things that we've done in the past with Alex [Smith] that we can maybe possibly pull back out that Josh would know, but still as we're teaching them, everything is brand new to Josh, even though he's done a little version of certain things, but, we'll try to figure out something." On if Johnson remembers the playbook: "Oh yeah, he's a very sharp guy there's no doubt about it. We changed a lot of terminology when I got here though, especially in the running game and some in the protections and some of that nature to suit the quarterbacks that I had here when we got here, so some of this is brand new to him." On comments made by LB Zach Brown and S D.J. Swearinger Sr.: "I did not see those so I don’t know what they said." On if he brings defensive team leaders to talk to them: "Yeah, it's important to mention how they speak to the media and how the media views their comments and how comments can be taken out of context from time to time and blown up into a headline. We made that talk at the very beginning of training camp and every so often we have the same talk. At the end of the day, with the amount of microphones in their face and social media, there will be things said that can be taken the wrong way or said in a poor fashion, so to speak, that could do damage to a team or a person's livelihood so to speak. So, just got to tell them to be careful, both those guys are highly emotional guys. They play very hard. They want to win and they're all frustrated, as we all are. We've just got to be careful with what we say." On Johnson's persistence to play in the NFL: "It helps him a lot. The one thing that I really respect about Josh Johnson is he is a very confident guy. He believes in his ability to be a quarterback in the National Football League despite being on 12 or 13 or 11 teams so to speak. He has a skill set that’s pretty good but hasn’t been able to stick anywhere, but still, the game's not too big for him. You could see when he went out there in the second half, he had poise, he had confidence, showed leadership, moved the chains, so that’s what I like about Josh and I think despite only being here for a little bit of time, he's going to go out there and feel like he's the best quarterback in pro football. That’s just the way he thinks and that's the way you have to think to be a good quarterback." On how TEs J.P. Holtz and Matt Flanagan have progressed this year: "They've come along good, really, I like them both. J.P. is kind of a tweener between tight end and fullback, he can line up at both those spots. Flanagan is more of a tight end in the core so to speak, so we'll have to make that decision probably Thursday or Friday who we're going to bring them up for. That’s the big issue right now. We have some guys that are a couple of week injuries, don’t want to put them on IR. We don’t really have a lot of room to waive people, but we'll figure something out Thursday or Friday if one of them comes up." On fixing missed assignments in the running game: "I think we miss-targeted a couple of runs, which happens from time to time with all the movement, when you do jet sweeps, fly motions, all that stuff and people move sometimes to center points here, they rotate over here, we get the point wrong so to speak. Sometimes when you line up stagnant and we get the point right, but we get our butts kicked in or make a wrong read with the back or what have you. Everything has got to be right on the offensive line. It's got to be 10 guys working in unison, including the back with his reads and footwork and the quarterback getting him his right play. The big thing is we have way, way too many negative runs. Negative runs have been the death, that and penalties, both of those two things have been the curse of this offense and that kills our drives, that kills our momentum, that kills our ability to call plays, keeping everything open in the playbook. When you have second and 18, and third and 15, your playbook goes down to this…when you're first and 10, second and six and third and two, everything is open and we haven’t had that luxury." On if he's heard back from the league on penalties: "I hear back from them every week and you know, same thing, different day." On if WR Simmie Cobbs Jr., could be called on to replace WR Josh Doctson: "Simmie has been great. He's been great. [Darvin] Kidsy has been great also, so if need be if one of those guys needs to be called up, I won't hesitate for a second. Like I said though, it’s a matter of roster spots. We don’t have a whole lot available so, we'll figure it out. I think Josh has a chance to be ok. He's getting checked out by an independent guy and hopefully we'll know more tomorrow." QB Josh Johnson On his experience across the league: "It has helped because I’ve been around a lot of different quarterbacks, a couple Super Bowl quarterbacks, a Hall of Fame quarterback, first-round picks, fifth-round picks. I’ve experienced coaching from numerous coaches and you pick up on some common traits. You pick up on different things where you can apply it when necessary whether it is preparation, performance, mental stability. Everything becomes a full circle, so it’s getting me ready for Sunday." On the difficulty of maintaining confidence: "Not hard, it’s not really hard for me because at the end of the day, I’ll always reflect back on reality for myself. Growing up in Oakland, California, I understand the real struggle. I understand the mentality that we tend to have in the inner city. For me, not only am I setting an example of what resilience is, I can’t tell a younger kid, I can’t tell my own kid how important it is to keep their mind on something if my actions don’t reflect that. They kind of hold me accountable as well when I interact with the youth because it’s important for me to practice what I preach." On staying mentally sharp when not on an NFL roster: "I could watch football. I’ve got old film that I study at home. One thing one of my coaches taught me, ironically it was Jay [Gruden]’s brother, when I first got in the league was to keep a manual on coaches, keep a manual on how the league is moving and just always stay updated. I kind of did that whether it be with footwork or whether it be with anything. So, even when I’m at home and I’m working out with the younger kids I’m putting them in situations that I want to experience out here. It may not be that exact same thing, they don’t even know what they’re doing some of the time but they’re learning. But it’s also helping me if I ever get put in this position and by the grace of God I’m here dealing with this opportunity." On the speed of the game against the New York Giants: "It felt like football. There are going to be some things that you don’t expect and there are going to be some things that you can do better, but at the end of the day, it kind of felt like football." On the familiarity of head coach Jay Gruden’s system: "It’s helped me a lot because, ironically, Jay yelled at me enough out there to where it kind of stuck in my head on certain things on how he wants things done. Stepping back in here has kind of eased my way through the little things a little bit better. There are some things that have changed, but again my journey has put me in so many different systems I’ve learned a huge amount of football from a lot of great football minds. It’s just kind of re-learning another language. At the end of the day, concepts are concepts. You have to really get focused on your teammates and really learn [from] those guys, that’s what kind of differentiates each team. But there are only so many plays you can run in the world." How the NFL has changed since his last start: "It’s a more wide open game. It’s a lot more catered to spread offenses. When I came up, I never even got into shotgun until third down in college, high school I was never in shotgun. I had to learn how to throw out a shotgun once I got in the league because the game was transforming a little bit to that. Obviously a lot of young quarterbacks’ college kind of caters to a spread offense, so really just keeping up with that and working it. Just working it any way possible, just try to be as resourceful as I can whether it is with another human being or that be with my old film, or even with a video game. Every little thing helps." On how those changes impact his game: "At the end of the day, I always felt like if a coach can get me to understand why I'm doing it, I have the ability to go out there and do it. I've always had that confidence in myself, it's just really now getting out there and repping it and going out there and doing it. My game is going to be my game regardless. I can't really be anybody else, so now that I have the opportunity to just play my game, it's pretty cool." On if Coach Gruden can get him to understand why he's doing a play: "We've worked together. We've had a good working relationship. We went to the playoffs that year in Cincinnati. I performed well in the preseason, so I always had comfortability in his system. He got a head coaching job after that, which he deserved and he's been winning since he got here, to come back and kind of experience a similar culture and being in something that I've been comfortable with before, it's kind of a blessing for me, because I don’t really have to go through the rigors of a coach trying figure me out. It's more of just figuring me in, you know?" On the challenges from Jacksonville's defense: "Honestly man, to me that’s the beauty of sports. As a pro athlete, as a kid, you want to be out there. I've been a backup for so long, I think you understand that having this opportunity is more special than the challenges that are ahead. I'm excited that we're playing this great defense. I'm excited that we're playing against these talented corners, this pass rush, these linebackers. It's a great test and I wouldn’t have it any other way to get an opportunity to go against somebody that you have to earn it and go out and prove that you deserve to be on this field. It’s kind of what I've been asking for, so by the grace of God, He's giving me the opportunity to prove my worth and proving your worth versus a great defense, as a competitor, what else can you ask for?" On how his work ethic is shaped by his upbringing: "To me, it’s just reality. One thing I've always appreciated, I mean I went to a non-scholarship school, I had to work jobs, so I didn’t get a scholarship, and nothing was ever given to me. To me, my life and what I've experienced is kind of common. We've kind of all experienced trials and tribulations in our career fields and our life trying to get ahead, wanting to get ahead, wanting to be at the top, but one thing that’s consistent is not everybody is at the top at the same time. So, you've just got to be patient, wait your turn, but if you really want it and you really love it, you're going to put in the work, so at the end of the day, when you get an opportunity, you can say I did what I was supposed to do to take care of my business. Everything I went through in Oakland is real life and that’s what a lot of people go through, so when I had an opportunity to go out here and play a game, that maybe 2,000 people get the opportunity to do, there isn’t anything to complain about. This is like going to Disney Land every day for me, for real, because just a week ago, I was at home in the hood, chilling with the kids, chilling with my family and thinking on the couch that I might never play in the NFL again. But a week later, look at me now, I'm here starting with a great opportunity to get us a victory this Sunday against Jacksonville. I'm excited about that and that’s a blessing." Jacksonville Jaguars Doug Marrone On preparation and establishing urgency in the team: "Well, we're obviously disappointed in where we are and this is our last home game, so I'm more focused on our team and making sure that they're ready to play. So, with the opponent situation, we're just trying to win, that's all we're trying to do." On preparing for QB Josh Johnson without much tape: "Well, I think obviously we've got the last game but now there's a full week and I believe our defensive coordinator was with him in Tampa when he was there, so hopefully that gives us a little better insight and then obviously going back to the older tapes. Just trying to get as much information as we possibly can to prepare our team." On what RB T.J. Yeldon has brought to their offense so far: "Well, he's done a great job for us obviously, in third down receptions, overall yardage and he's always been a good football player when we took him in the second round. He's just contributing as much as he can. We’ve got a lot of guys, a lot of guys have to play well for all of our players to play well, but T.J. has done a nice job." On containing QB Josh Johnson due to his speed: "Well, we've struggled with mobile quarterbacks, so basically being able to keep him in the pocket and having a good rush plan and obviously we have to be able to tackle. We're coming off a game where we did not tackle well at all. Obviously, we've been emphasizing that this week. We have to have a good plan for the running backs, a good plan to keep the quarterback in the pocket." On facing RB Adrian Peterson: "Well for us it's a big concern because of last week. We really didn’t follow through on the tackling plan on a big back. Obviously AP is an outstanding back. He's got acceleration. He can stiff arm. He's done a great job of breaking tackles, running through contact, things of that nature, so we're going to have to get people to the ball and get a lot of population around him to get him down."

    Let's Talk about Pets

    @Jumbo
  11. Yeah the font has a knock off Star Trek font feel to it. We we know about just about every issue you guys are reporting & then some. Time stamps & everything else you couldn’t see, I recoded the colors on them around 3am this morning. Still cant post or quote with Chrome - we know. Mobile is working fine- yes we know about the white space up top. It’s the same as on the desktop version. Heres the part part where I’m running into a huge issue (not to be confused with Issues the cat). I’m on the road out of town the rest of the week & then covering the Jags game this weekend & won’t be back until Monday. So I’m going to have very limited time to work anymore on this until then. Hopefully the NFL gets their conflicting scripts/code fixed & Imvision can do the rest in the few days.
  12. ****. Seeing that as well on desktop. Seems to work fine on mobile so far
  13. Yeah we know. We’re probably at about 90% fixed right now. The remaining 10% most of you probably won’t even notice
  14. Exactly. Because its it’s an issue with the old unsecured theme & the new secured theme. The new basically pulls some of the links from the old theme. Those links are from the unsecured http & not the secured https. It’s just a waiting game of getting the scripts fixed. Mobile version is fine because it’s it own theme/skin.
  15. REDSKINS HEAD COACH JAY GRUDEN On injuries: "Injuries, Jordan Reed, foot sprain/toe. I'm not sure which one, he did not return. Shaun Dion Hamilton had a shoulder strain I guess." On starting their fourth quarterback next week: "It’s tough to deal with. It really is. It’s unfortunate. Our guys continue to compete. That product we put on the field today was not a reflection of the guys work during the week and at practice. However, it did look bad. It’s a reflection of all of us. I think our players competed and did the best they could. Mark Sanchez and Josh Johnson, can’t say enough about them coming in here with really short notice trying to learn an NFL offense and play on a Sunday with limited reps. They competed and did the best they could. At the end of the day, we weren’t quite ready." On the drop off in play on defense: "Started out really well. It started off good. First quarter we were competing, going toe-to-toe. We weren’t getting any yardage on offense. We were going three and out a lot. We got backed up and threw a pick-six. After that, I think it was like a punch in the gut for everybody. They had a nice drive to get it to ten to nothing. We had another three and out I believe. I think Saquon [Barkley] might have broke one. For the most part, I don’t have an explanation right now as far as what the breakdowns were, who they were and why they were. I just know that Saquon is one heck of a back. We missed some fits. We saw some glaring missed fits that this late in the year shouldn’t happen. That’s something we should be detailed up on right now. It wasn’t the case, especially the long run." On if any changes are coming: "No, not really. We have a game to win next week in Jacksonville [Jaguars]. Then, we have to go about try to find a way to do it." On if QB Josh Johnson will start next week: "Yes, we’ll get Josh ready to go. I think the element he brings a little bit knowing the system. He came in here and he was playing a pickup basketball game and came in here and is playing in the National Football League on a Sunday. My hat’s off to him for picking it up. Fortunately, he’s been around me for a while and can handle the terminology and did a pretty good job moving around." On feeling like his job is in jeopardy: "My job is in jeopardy every week, so I just have to go about and do the best I can to get these guys ready to go. We’ll continue to do that." On QB Mark Sanchez: "What did work? There was nothing that worked so nothing worked. Everything did not work. I don’t know. I’ll have to check it out. We tried to run the ball early. We ran the ball first down. Second down, we ran the ball. Then, we got stopped. The running game wasn’t very productive for us. We weren’t getting any big plays. Threw the pick-six and the ball got batted at the line. There were a couple of different reasons why. Misread a couple of coverages. Maybe missed a couple throws and some protection issues. You’re talking about a quarterback that just got here and you ask me why everything went wrong. There’s a lot of different reasons, but we do understand how difficult it is for him to come in with a short amount of time to play." On LB Zach Brown not starting: "Zach Brown missed a couple of days because he was sick, so we started in base with Shaun Dion [Hamilton] and went on from there. Then Shaun Dion got hurt and Zach Brown came back out." On not competing in the second half today: "First half was terrible. That was a snowball effect. Second half was the same way. We made the switch to Josh and got a rally going. I don’t think it was a lack of competing, we just got beat a little bit. We gave ourselves terrible field position for the defense. They were on the field a long time. A lot of three and outs by the offense. They might have been gassed a little bit. I would never say we did not compete. I’ll have to watch the film and find out." On if there is a disconnect in preparation: "I don’t know if there is a disconnect or not. We’ll have to check the run defense. There’s a disconnect. We have a quarterback who just got here. We have two offensive guards who were named starter yesterday. There’s a disconnect there. There are three of our starting 11 guys that just got here a little bit ago, so there’s a disconnect there. We also lost Jordan Reed in the first quarter, so there’s a major disconnect there. There’s four pretty good players or four key players who aren’t out there or what have you. Two starting guards and a starting quarterback, I’d say there is a disconnect there." On other things on defense that didn’t go well and Giants RB Saquon Barkley: "I don’t know. This is all pretty fresh. I’ll have to check the film out. There’s a couple missed tackles there. We talk about wrapping up and all that good stuff. It didn’t happen today. He’s a great player, so let's give him some credit too. He is a really good running back. He’s the first or second pick in the draft for a reason. He’s going to continue to be a great running back and give a lot of people a lot of fits." On why the struggles are happening this late in the year: "I think sometimes some guys get over-aggressive. Like a lot of the keepers, the nakeds when they fake the run, guys were really aggressive trying to get in there and make a tackle. Then it’s a naked and we’re out flanked from time to time. Backside they hit outside a gap by a head or two and they get pinned or the guy makes them miss in the hole. There’s a lot of different reasons for it. At the end of the day I don’t think it's because of lack of effort or guys aren’t playing. Sometimes they are playing too hard and getting out of a gap." On choosing the guards: "They were the biggest. We went with the size. We’re trying to be a physical football team and try and get some runs downhill, runs early. They probably had the best ability to pass protect. We got Zac [Kerin] in here three days ago and obviously, Ty [Nsekhe] is the other one, we just got him not too long ago. We went with the bigger, safer type players. Guys who are a little but more veteran type guys." On what led to the decision to go with QB Josh Johnson: "We were down pretty much. I want to give Mark [Sanchez] the benefit of the doubt and give him a chance. We just couldn’t protect. I thought at the end of the day, if we are having trouble protecting, I need somebody who can move around and makes some plays. I went with Josh. The ability to scramble and make some plays with his legs. Mix in some RPOs and zone-reads, all that stuff." On penalties: "Obviously, I’m upset about the loss, but these penalties I have to check them out. I’m sure we’ll send a bunch up to the league and find out. The holding calls and the one on Fabian [Moreau] down the left sideline, I thought he got pulled down. They called it on Fabian. The personal foul at the end on Josh [Doctson], I don’t know what was going on. It was a big pile up. A lot of holding calls again. When you get a young quarterback and you’re trying to run the ball and you get first and 18 or second and 20, you have no chance. That’s a major issue. It’s been an issue, hands to the face and holding. Whatever they are, we’ll have to check them out and continue to try and correct them." REDSKINS CORNERBACK GREG STROMAN On his frustrations today: “Anytime you lose it's frustrating, but we’ll just go back at it next week.” On penalties: “I mean that’s unacceptable. We just have to go back and correct it.” On playoff chances: “No, anything can happen. We’re going to play our hearts out every game.” On improvements on defense: “We just have to play together. We just have to keep grinding. It’ll work out.” REDSKINS LINEBACKER RYAN KERRIGAN On the defensive struggles: “It’s the little things. You have to get off blocks and allow running lanes for the guys who are filling in. It’s that, it's coverage. It’s easier said than done but it’s what we have to do.” On practice this week: “I feel like we had a good week of practice, a good week of work. Guys were excited coming off a disappointing game against Philadelphia [Eagles]. We knew if we won this one, we’d be right back in it. But we didn’t.” REDSKINS WIDE RECEIVER JAMISON CROWDER On his career long touchdown reception: “I don’t know. We just got man coverage and got by the corner on the shallow and just caught him in playing and shooting right down the sideline. That’s pretty much it.” On what QB Josh Johnson brought to the game: “Yeah, I just think he brought a certain level of energy. It was a tough day, but when he came in, you could kind of just feel he had a certain level of energy and we just all kind of fed off of that and just played along with it.” REDSKINS OFFENSIVE LINEMAN MORGAN MOSES On the amount of penalties and the adversity on the offensive line: “Well it is and obviously there are some things we’ve got to correct. Obviously, having different quarterbacks in there, the cadence and things like that, but obviously we’ve just got to hone into what we do. Whatever it is, if it’s keeping the offense simple, whatever it is we need to. We just have to make sure everybody is one page and that way we can execute it as best as possible.” On if the team feels they still have a chance at the playoffs: “Oh definitely. Obviously, you play to win and you’ve got three games left—three winnable games. Obviously, Jacksonville has a great defense, but they’re struggling on offense just like we are. We’ve just got to come out and be explosive. We’ve got to come out and correct the things, not put ourselves in those second and 15’s and first and 20 situations and just try to move the ball down the field. Our defense is playing lights out. Obviously, we turned the ball over in the short field or we give them a short field to go, it’s obviously harder for our defense. But the young guys come out there and play, they play with their heart. We’ve just got to make sure we put them in the best positions so we can succeed as a team.” On what QB Josh Johnson was able to bring: “Obviously, he didn’t get a lot of reps this week because we were getting Mark [Sanchez] ready. I don’t really know that much about the guy [Laughter] because he’s kind of been ducked off in meetings trying to learn the offense himself. Obviously, his run ability brings a lot to the table, but obviously he’s been around the league for a while and things like that. He’s been with Jay [Gruden] before, so to see what he brought to the table today was definitely eye opening.” REDSKINS LINEBACKER MASON FOSTER On being drained physically and mentally: “It’s tough, it’s a long season. But, there’s no excuses and we have to play better. We still have to keep playing no matter who they have at quarterback or who we have at quarterback or what's going on with the offense or any of that.” On the defensive struggles: “I think it’s giving up big plays. Earlier in the year, we didn’t give up those big plays. Now that we’re giving them up, it’s putting us in a hole. We have to be able to fight out of that hole and keep pushing but things just aren’t going our way and we have to get it fixed. It’s embarrassing to lose like this.” On the upcoming schedule: “We just have to keep moving forward. We took a tough loss today. A lot of things haven’t been going our way the last couple weeks, but you can turn it around. All it takes is continuing to work hard. Guys have been working hard at practice. We just have to get the little things corrected and we’ll be alright.” REDSKINS CORNERBACK JOSH NORMAN On what went wrong with the defense today: “Everything, you saw the game.” On why practice didn’t transfer to success during the game: “I don’t know man. We were taken to the back of the barn, kind of like your grandmother does with one of those big thick paddles and we got it put to the backside pretty good. That’s what happened.” On why the defense is allowing more points: “I don’t really know what it is. At the end of the day, we have to come out and do what we have to do. We just didn’t have it today, it kind of sucks. The hand we are being dealt right now, we just have to get through it. We have three games left, so let’s make something happen, something positive. Bright spot we had today was Josh Johnson. Everything else, it is what it is.” REDSKINS QUARTERBACK JOSH JOHNSON On how much of the offense he knew coming in and how he felt in game: “When I got in on Wednesday, I went through the game plan and I felt pretty comfortable. A lot of stuff I was familiar with, what I’ve done with Coach [Jay] Gruden in Cincinnati and down with his brother in Tampa and Oakland. I was pretty excited about that, but obviously there were new things so I had to just grind away like I’ve done numerous times in my career as I’ve been in this situation so much.” On how prepared he felt coming into the game versus where he wants to be next week: “Well, the beauty of it, I mean I’ve been a fourth stringer, a third stringer. But you don’t actually get any live reps so just to go against the defense, I was able to re-watch the film and just focus on the things I know are necessary to be a productive quarterback. In regards to footwork and timing, I was able to get that done by going against our defense. I really didn’t have a clue how it would go in the game because I didn’t get reps with the real guys. At the end of the day, I’ve been doing this long enough, so at the end of the day just go out there and trust your reads, trust your coaches and let’s see what happens.” On how it felt to see it come together on the field: “It felt good man. It felt good to really just go out there and experience some success with these guys. For myself, I mean I haven’t played in a long time. I’ve always be interested in getting out there in a real game. I had the opportunity and I just wanted to take advantage of it.” REDSKINS QUARTERBACK MARK SANCHEZ On why the offense couldn’t get in sync: “Listen, it was tough sledding for sure, that’s easy to figure out. I think we were trying to establish the run game hard in the beginning and then we just kind of ran into a little bit of buzz saw there and got ourselves into some tough situations. Some second and longs, third and longs and some know passing situations and it makes it tough. But, I thought there were plays to be made. I thought we hung in there, it wasn’t an effort issue by any means. I was proud of the way guys thought and hung in there even when things started to turn. You got a tipped interception on really what could have potentially been a breakout play. You’re not looking at that lineman right in front of you. He kind of falls off a block and I’m trying to make a throw down the field, which even looking at it on the iPad, I’m curious to see it on film. I think we had Mike Floyd running, so that’s too bad. There’s nothing you can do about it and things just snowballed from there. Then Coach [Jay Gruden] wanted to go with Josh [Johnson] and he adds a different element. He can really run and he uses his ability to scramble, so I was proud of his effort and tried to help him as much as I could. No matter what, going into this thing, it’s a team effort and you do everything you can to win. Obviously, we imagined it going a lot different than this and it’s really too bad. But like I said, it was never an effort issue and guys had a great attitude the whole time. They were positive, as positive as you can be in the face of adversity like that.” On how much the two quarterbacks are able to talk with each other: “Listen, as soon as Josh got the call, we knew there were going to be a couple different changes with his ability to move. Then everything I was seeing, I tried to relay to him and then just be his eyes on the sideline, remind him of anything I could. That’s what you do in a quarterback room, that’s what you do as a professional. Sure, would I have liked the day to go better and have a big win and be celebrating right now? Absolutely, but it didn’t go that way. We’re both teammates. I really respect him and I thought he came in and played his butt off. I’m proud of him and the whole team. They really did rally around us and that’s not easy to do, you know? So I appreciated that.” REDSKINS-GIANTS GAME NOTES The Washington Redskins dropped a 40-16 loss to the New York Giants at FedExField on Sunday afternoon. Redskins recorded a pair of two-point conversions on back-to-back scoring drives. It is the first time the Redskins have scored a pair of two-point conversions in a single game. The last time Washington completed a two-point conversion was Dec. 26, 2015 against the Eagles. Quarterback Josh Johnson made his Redskins debut and completed 11-of- 16 pass attempts for 195 yards and one touchdown for a passer rating of 104.9. Johnson threw a 79-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. The score was a career long touchdown pass for Johnson and his first touchdown pass since throwing a 23-yard touchdown pass on Dec. 4, 2011 as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The game marks Johnson's first game played since Dec 22, 2013 when he was a member of the Cincinnati Bengals. In that game he recorded three rushing yards on four attempts. Johnson recorded 45 rushing yards on seven attempts (6.4 avg.) and one rushing touchdown. It is the first time a Redskins player has recorded a rushing touchdown and passed for a touchdown in the same game since Kirk Cousins finished with two rushing touchdowns and a touchdown pass against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 10 of the 2017 season. Wide Receiver Jamison Crowder finished with a game high 87 receiving yards (43.5 avg.) with two receptions and a career long touchdown catch for 79 yards. Tight End Vernon Davis finished with four receptions for 31 yards (7.8 avg.). Wide Receiver Josh Doctson hauled in four receptions for a single game career high 84 yards (21.0 avg.) Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix tied a team high seven tackles (five solo) and recorded one pass defensed. Linebacker Mason Foster finished with six tackles (four solo) and an interception. Foster posted his second interception of the season and it is his first time recording multiple interceptions in one season since 2013 when he finished with a career-season high of three interceptions as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton tied a team high seven tackles (five solo) and added one quarterback hit. Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan made his 125th consecutive regular season start. The streak is the longest active streak among active NFL linebackers. Kerrigan has not missed a start in his NFL career. Kerrigan finished with six tackles (four solo), two tackles for a loss and two quarterback hits and one sack for a 14-yard loss. With the sack, Kerrigan has now recorded at least 8.5 or more sacks for a seventh-consecutive season. He becomes the 13th player in NFL history to accomplish the feat since sacks became an official statistic in 1982. Kerrigan (80.5) is now two sacks shy of passing Charles Mann (82.0) for No. 2 on the all-time franchise list. Kerrigan remains as one of six NFL players (and only three non-quarterbacks) to have started every game since the start of the 2011 season (Brandon Carr, Patrick Peterson, Philip Rivers, Matt Ryan and Matthew Stafford). Cornerback Josh Norman collected one tackle for loss and two passes defensed. Norman has now recorded 18 games in his career in which he has registered at least two passes defensed. He also recorded two passes defensed in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons. Defensive lineman Daron Payne recorded a sack and now has 5.0 sacks on the season. With the sack, the Redskins have now recorded consecutive seasons with at least three or more players with five or more sacks since the 91-92 seasons. Punter Tress Way (36) recorded three punts inside the 20 yard line and set a new single season franchise record since the statistic began being tracked in 1976. Way was the 2018 league leader entering the day. Way (345) registered eight punts to take sole possession of third on the Redskins all-time list, passing Sammy Baugh (338) and Pat Richter (338).
  16. December 10, 2018 Head Coach Jay Gruden On injuries: "Injuries last night, Jordan Reed has a great toe/muscle strain; [Shaun] Dion Hamilton, Shaun has a shoulder sprain contusion and [Josh] Doctson is in concussion protocol." On when WR Josh Doctson got injured: "I don’t know. He checked in this morning with symptoms and we're just checking them out." On if TE Jordan Reed's injury is a new injury: "Yeah, all that's safe. This is a new one." On the level of concern with Reed playing: "Yeah, there's a level of concern. It's a pretty good strain on your toe, big toe. Obviously with the amount of cutting he does, we'll see if it's one week, two weeks or the rest of the year. We're not sure yet." On when Reed got injured: "I think he hurt it on the first throw. It was a little bit high and then he came down on it, landed on it and the guy stepped on him I believe." On if LB Zach Brown will start vs Jacksonville: "Yeah, we'll see. I think we need a good week of practice from him. He missed a couple days last week and we had him in the sub package. Then when Shaun Dion [Hamilton] went down, he played a lot. It's a decent group. We just have to get more out of them." On if Brown not starting was performance-related or related to him missing practice: "He missed. Shaun Dion [Hamilton] took the reps and was ready to go." On if there is a lack of trust with Brown: "No, we had him up and like I said, in the sub package. We were just going to start Shaun Dion [Hamilton] in base just to get it started. Then as the game went on, we were going to see how Shaun Dion did and then move on from there." On the defensive struggles: "Well, we're trying to put our finger on it and we're trying to put guys in the right spots. At the end of the day, it's about getting off blocks, it's about pursuit angles, it's about tackling. We did a good job of that for some of the time, but the glaring plays were the long runs. He [Giants RB Saquon Barkley] had an 80-yard run I believe, a 50-yard run and another 30-yard run. Those things we just got out of gaps and then we took poor angles at the second level. He's a great back without a doubt, but we made it easy on him on a couple of those long runs for sure." On if the defense is fatigued: "I don’t think so. I think the young guys are holding up pretty good on the inside. I think [Daron] Payne had a very good game and Jonathan Allen held up on the inside. On the outside, [Ryan] Kerrigan and Preston [Smith] did what they could. Then the linebackers, we just for whatever reason, I think it's a combination really. I've said it many, many times in the run game on defense, it's such a gap controlled game that if one guy gets out of the gap or one guy misses the tackle, it's a big play potentially, especially against a good back like Saquon [Barkley]. He made us pay a couple times with some good cut backs and some missed tackles." On the penalties: "Yeah, I mean throw a flag, there's a couple of them that I have really major questions on. At the end of the day, it's kind of like that every week. You could probably watch the film and go back and rewind it ten times and you'd find a holding call on every play or not a holding call on any play that they called, so no matter how you look at it I guess. It is an issue that has haunted us all year. We lead the league in penalties and it continues to get worse. I think when you have a league lead in penalties, I think it alerts the referees before the game and they might watch us a little more closely, I told our guys today. With that being said, obviously, we have to do a better job of getting our hands out and get our hands off the facemask. But, 14 penalties to two penalties, a little odd but we have to deal with it and we have to overcome them." On the mental space of the players: "Well, mental space is very important. We have to get in the right frame of mind. We can't lose any confidence, but we have to understand we’ve got to work. We have to work harder than our opponent. We have to practice harder, we have to be up on our fundamentals, we have to be up on our assignments, we have to be focused in on every play. When you're playing against very talented players on the other side of the field, no matter who you play, they're going to have players that if you lack in focus for one snap, it's going to cost you. We played good. I can put a highlight reel together of the last four weeks on defense where we looked pretty darn good, but I can put a highlight reel together that looks pretty poor. Obviously, we have to get rid of those poor plays, those big plays that are killing us. Offensively, we have to find a way to make some big plays, not until the end of the game when we finally manufacture some chunk yards. Chunk yards is a huge part of pro football, something we have to avoid on defense, something we have to get to on offense." On how he measures QB Josh Johnson's performance relative to the deficit when he entered: "Well, I think they were playing the same coverage. They didn’t change up their game plan when Josh came in. I think Josh came in and provided a spark with his legs a little bit, avoided some pressure, moved around, got to the second, third progressions on a few throws, despite just getting here. So, I was impressed with his poise mostly and his ability to maneuver in the pocket with the offensive line in flux the way that it is, new right guard, Ty [Nsekhe] playing left guard for the first time, Chase [Roullier] coming off the injury. We had some push up the middle, so I thought it was necessary to try and get somebody who can move around a little bit better and Josh did that. He's always been a guy in the pocket who is pretty dangerous when he moves around, gets outside and he was familiar with the system and handled [it]. For the most part, he did a pretty good job with the snap count and formations and plays, so I think there is an upside there that we can build off of." On why it's been hard for Johnson to stick with a quarterback job: "Yeah, you know when you watch Josh play, he can be hot and cold throwing the ball. He can throw a great ball and then throw one in the dirt then throw a great ball. The consistency probably is what people see. Now his age, he's a little bit older, guys want to go younger, try and go younger, try to get a younger guy in here. But, he's been on 11 or 12 teams. You can look at it as a negative or you look at it as a positive that he does have a skill set that’s intriguing and when he gets an opportunity, like he did yesterday, he does pretty well. So, he'll get another big one on Sunday." On his evaluation of S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix: "Yeah, Ha Ha has done some good things without a doubt. There's some things that we've got to clean up for sure, but like I said before, I like his professionalism, I like the way he works and I like the way he plays consistently. Overall, I think everybody on defense, I think there is a play or two they wish they had back without a doubt, there's a play call we wish we had back – a couple of them, but it's something that we've got to get our guys to play fast and play furious and understand where they're supposed to be and how they're supposed to get there." On if Clinton-Dix has made the impact he envisioned when trading for him: "I think he's finding his way, really. Getting to know the guys, getting to know the scheme a little bit. It's not easy, but he's a veteran guy and understands different core concepts and coverages, but a lot of the things we do, we have different checks here and there and it's just something where we get the communication right with D.J. [Swearinger Sr.]. D.J. has had to do some different things, being down in the box a little bit more. I think just from a communication issue, it's getting better and better but it needs to get a lot better next week." On if he considers switching Clinton-Dix with S Montae Nicholson: "Yeah, we have to look at Montae again. I think nobody gave up on Montae, we traded for a good player, a Pro-Bowl type player in Ha Ha and we wanted to give him every opportunity to come in and play. It wasn’t that we were down on Montae at all, we just needed depth at that position, got him in here and we liked what we saw, so we put him out there early. But, Montae does have a chance to play in the next three weeks quite a bit if we choose to that route because he is a good player with great speed." On if there is a specific technique that is forcing penalties on the offensive line: "You know, I don’t think it’s a technique we're teaching that’s getting called. We're getting called all different kinds of ways. We get called on the wrap-around every once in a while, we get called on the takedown, we get called on hands to the face. We got called on something, I watched the play back 30 times and was trying to figure out which player held and still don’t know. I think they called it on our right guard and I don’t know what he did. But, I don’t know, we just have to get it cleaned up, whatever it is." On if he can confirm reports on QB Alex Smith: "I cannot confirm anything right now. I told you I was going to be hush-hush on this deal until Alex was ready to talk about it." On if OL Tony Bergstrom could possibly play this week: "He was in his boot, boot, boot yesterday. I think he took the boot off today, walked around a little bit. Probably will be a long shot to get him ready this week and hopefully he'll be back next week."
