Kyle Shanahan, Haslett address coaching futures | WashingtonExaminer.com
"Here we’ve had a lot of ups and downs and just to be able to learn through that, to be able to handle certain things, how to change your stuff as you go with your players, trying to find ways when you don’t necessarily have the players in certain spots and battle through injuries," Shanahan said. "Each year as a coach you get a lot more experience. I’ve been confident since I’ve been given a position as a coordinator, which was five years ago, but each year I do get more confidence because you see a lot more situations and feel in everything you do you get better or worse. When you don’t win you go through some tough times. The main thing is to get better from it. I think I’ve learned a lot from experience here and from experience in Houston."

"Out in the suburbs where we lived in Chicago, Walter Payton and Mike Singletary lived in that area and both had decided they wouldn’t let their kids play tackle football until they were older," Cousins said. "They had both played football for so long, gotten beaten up so much and knew the pounding that you take as a football player and felt like you could still learn the rules of the game playing flag football or playing in the backyard. So when guys who played in the NFL and are Hall of Famers are encouraging my dad to not push it too early, my dad listened."

Seahawks defensive player to watch: CB Richard Sherman
"He’s just a wiry guy. He’s always draped on you, or doing something extra," said receiver Santana Moss. "He’s one of those guys you get up for because you know that he’s going to bring that competitiveness out of you. You consider him one of the best because of how he plays."

Redskins Keys to the Game vs. Seahawks in Playoffs | Fanspeak Washington Redskins Blog
The Skins used their win streak to capture the NFC East crown while the Seahawks just missed out catching the 49ers and are the wildcard. Seattle has dropped Washington in their last two playoff appearances but those games were in Seattle. I think this plays a major role Sunday. Earlier in the season Seattle struggled on the road but their recent play has shown them to be a much better road team.

Wilson Ready To 'Ball' Against Former Team
"We just went out there and balled," he said in the locker room after Sunday's game. "We’ve been playing like this for the last seven weeks. We knew we had to win eleven in a row to be able to accomplish our goal and we’re doing it. "We’ve got God on our side right now and we’re going to keep riding this, and pray we make it all the way to the Championship." Eleven-straight wins from the Redskins' bye week would crown the team Super Bowl Champions, but Wilson is focused on winning one game at a time--just like the team has for two months.

Richard Sherman confident facing Redskins receivers
"None of them," Sherman told USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday as the Seahawks prepared to face the Redskins (Sunday, 4:30 p.m. ET, Fox) in an NFC wild-card playoff game. Not Pierre Garcon, who leads the Redskins in receiving yards? "I don't think so," Sherman said. "Not that I know of."

Need to Know: Morris runs the table on awards - Rich Tandler's Real Redskins
Redskins running back Alfred Morris found out Wednesday morning that he was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week after rushing for 200 yards and three touchdowns against the Cowboys. His awards wall picked up a couple more plaques in the afternoon. Morris was voted the NFL rookie of the week for Week 17 in a fan vote on NFL.com. It was the third time this year that Morris won that honor; he also claimed it for Week 7 (@ Giants) and Week 14 (Ravens). Quarterback Robert Griffin III was voted rookie of the week seven times this year and backup QB Kirk Cousins won it once. Doing the math, that means that the Redskins had the top rookie performance for 11 of the 17 weeks of the season.

"Coach Haslett, Wale," he said, reintroducing himself. "Great job." "Oh yeah, the rapper!" Haslett belted out, much to his daughter’s amusement. "Thanks." They shook hands and hugged.

How effective will QB Robert Griffin III be? Griffin rushed for 63 yards and a touchdown on six carries against Dallas in his second game back from a sprained right knee. He’s still limited, though, by the injury and the knee brace. The Redskins need him to be able to run in order to keep Seattle’s front off-balance.

Wilbon says Skins-Seahawks is NFC title game
"Tony, this is the NFC title game," Wilbon said. "These are the two best teams in the NFC. With all due respect to the 49ers and Atlanta, THESE are the two best teams in the NFC. They’re the hottest teams, and I think they’re the best teams. They’re both having magical seasons. "I think Seattle’s a little better team, because they’ve been at this a little bit longer," he went on. "They were able to get to the playoffs [in 2010], they had the defense built, they don’t have the injuries the Redskins do. But the Redskins have played around those injuries, which is startling. All praise to Jim Haslett for getting around the defensive losses that they had early in the season, which were crippling.

Barry Cofield sees mirror image of Redskins in Seahawks - The Washington Post
"It’s definitely changed," Cofield said. "To see a team hand the ball off that much, it’s a good change for me." It actually reminded Cofield of the offense he has faced each day in practice since training camp. The Redskins, after all, have run the ball more than all but two teams. One of them, the team that has rushed more than any in the NFL this year, is the Seahawks.
