Washington Redskins News and Notes: 11/29 | Fanspeak Washington Redskins Blog
Likely the additions of Muckelroy and Kehl will allow the Redskins to utilize Lorenzo Alexander more as a blitzer from here on out. He showed up well in that role during the Vikings game but hasn't had many opportunities since. Though it shouldn't make a major impact, Alexander could add a little boost to the pass rush.

Cruz says Redskins 'couple pieces away' - NFC East Blog - ESPN
"They're still a couple pieces away from actually being a contender, them being in legitimate talks for playoffs and things like that," Cruz said today on a conference call. "They're still a few pieces away whether it be defensively or wherever they are missing some pieces. But I think they've definitely -- they've got to be in the conversation. They've got a good team, they play good football, they hold the ball for a long time, and they really do some good things. So I definitely put them in that conversation, for sure."

"Will does a great job for us," said right tackle Tyler Polumbus. "He knows our scheme really well, he knows how to get our guys in the right position and he’s certainly a leader on this team. I wouldn’t necessarily call him the most vocal guy in the world, but he’s going to go out there and handle his business. He goes out there and leads by example."

"We’ve got a story to tell to our kids and our grandkids, how we played with a guy who played a whole game with a broken arm," defensive tackle Barry Cofield said after the game. "I’m going to remember both. RGIII’s going to come first, obviously, because that’s what they’re going to ask me about, but when my grandson scrapes his knee, I’ll tell him about the guy who played with a broken arm."

"It’s a good feeling and it’s a little bit of motivation, especially for a young team like this," said wide receiver Pierre Garçon. "We know what we can do to keep working hard and what we can achieve." Garçon, who has been battling an ailing toe, says he feels healthy and is trying to return to form.

The Redskins Blog | Coordinators: To Booth Or Not To Booth?
If you recall, during the final game-winning drive at Raymond James Stadium, Griffin III’s headset mysteriously stopped working, malfunctioning at a critical juncture of the game…Regardless of how it happened, Griffin III improvised for several plays before gesturing to Kyle that his headphone wasn’t working. "That’s when I realized they were out," Kyle said after the game. "I didn’t get what play we were running and I could see he didn’t hear it. We had two more plays and it worked out."

The Redskins Blog | Morris: ‘I Have A Whole Lot Of Heart’
"I believe in myself," Morris said. "My work ethic is ridiculous. Me, just as a person, I know what I’m capable of doing. I chose the path less traveled. Not many people could have chose the path to go to [Florida Atlantic] and be able to come into the NFL and do what I’ve done. Nothing I’ve ever gotten on my path was given — I’ve earned everything. And I know how to go out there and earn it, set goals and attain my goals. Just my sheer work ethic and my heart — you can’t measure a man’s heart, and I have a whole lot of heart."

No stranger to late season runs, Giants’ Coughlin not counting Redskins out
The Redskins believe that they have a chance to become only the fourth team since 1990 to make the playoffs after opening the year with a 3-6 record. The most recent team to pull off such a feat? The 1996 Jacksonville Jaguars, then coached by current Giants coach Tom Coughlin. Jacksonville won six of their last seven regular season games to finish the year 9-7 and then went on to reach the AFC Championship before falling to New England.

Redskins Legacy: Birth Of A Giant Rivalry
Forty years ago, the Redskins marched their way to the franchise’s first Super Bowl appearance. An 11-3 regular season in 1972 preceded playoff romps over the Packers and Cowboys, before a 14-7 loss to the Dolphins in Super Bowl VII.

WR has 'heard' of Viagra use to gain edge on field - Washington Times
Players cracked jokes about it Thursday, a day after Bears star receiver Brandon Marshall said he had heard that some players were using Viagra and hoping it would give them an advantage during games. Punch lines aside, experts say it’s unlikely the erectile-dysfunction drug would help. "What would that do? That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard," Minnesota Vikings long snapper Cullen Loeffler said.

Aldrick Robinson explains his end zone celebration
"It’s this little Dallas dance called the Zombie," he explained. "You kinda just make your arms stretch out like a zombie. I just dropped with it one time, and then got back and rolled my head around like a walking zombie."

"I was always taught to let the offense end the game," he said. "So I didn’t need to go back out there. We already gave up 400-some yards passing. I didn’t need no more yards thrown up on us. Then I got to run down on kickoff? Nah. Let’s just go ahead, take a knee, end it, let RG keep the game ball. I should have just caught it and took a knee, but it happened so fast. It kind of bounced in my hands, I was almost running away not to get hit. Before you know it, I was at the 1 [yard-line], and had to slide down real quick."
