There are currently 3 undefeated starting QBs in Redskins history. 2007 Todd Collins, 1987 strike season replacement Ed Rubbert (both 3-0), and Josh Johnson. #HTTR— Rudy Gersten (@DCBarno) December 17, 2018
Jay Gruden said he told QB Josh Johnson to "calm down" in pre-game because "he was throwing 180 miles an hour at the guy... But he has a lot of poise for a guy who just got here... He made some big-time throws. I was impressed with him."— John Keim (@john_keim) December 17, 2018
Redskins injury updates: there's some hope tight end Jordan Reed (foot/toe) can return this week, but they're not sure yet; they're also hopeful about guard Ty Nsekhe (knee); corner Josh Holsey partially tore his ACL and was placed on injured reserve;... https://t.co/UkSEENFL2N— John Keim (@john_keim) December 17, 2018
Jay Gruden said Colt McCoy recently sent a video of him running through drills. McCoy underwent surgery to repair a broken fibula on Dec. 4. It’s unclear if the veteran QB will be able to return this season but it hasn’t been ruled out, either. #Redskins pic.twitter.com/qfJaF80vTa— Tarik El-Bashir (@Tarik_ElBashir) December 17, 2018

Asked about the new long snapper Andrew East, Gruden said, “he did pretty good, I guess.”— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 17, 2018
Coach said hard to compare to Sundberg’s velocity.
Gruden on importance of special teams: “Were gonna be grinding out some games these last couple weeks.”— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 17, 2018
Johnson “I owe this game that much because I love it that much”. His passion is obvious. Easy for fans to root for. https://t.co/sEraJN99vK— John Keim (@john_keim) December 17, 2018
There *is* talent here; I think focus in the draft should be adding more speed at WR and another big, mad mf'er on the offensive line. Don't force QB early.— Hogs Haven (@HogsHaven) December 17, 2018
Nice bounce-back game from Foster.— Hogs Haven (@HogsHaven) December 17, 2018
Allen now has 7 sacks, 10 TFLs, 14 QB hits and 51 tackles on the season as a DT https://t.co/DEHBMF6HSp
#Redskins might not have gotten a ton of yards out of it, but I liked the 2 RB package with both Thompson and Marshall out of the pistol yesterday. Had multiple different plays out of the same/similar look. Liked the creativity. pic.twitter.com/6Ledr9ElOn— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) December 18, 2018
Jalen Ramsey literally points and laughs at Maurice Harris after this 4th quarter drop. I'm dying laughing. It's so disrespectful.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 17, 2018
(The next play is the Crowder tip miracle, so the laughing probably didn't last long for Ramsey...) pic.twitter.com/m1wPZadnpK
“We needed that win. We had done too much good early in the season to just let it all go away.” — Ryan Kerrigan, who had two sacks Sunday to get to 11 on the season. He’s now recorded double digits in sacks in four of the last five years. #Redskins pic.twitter.com/52yPOaI8Lq— Tarik El-Bashir (@Tarik_ElBashir) December 17, 2018
At least one team has Redskins senior VP Eric Schaffer "at the top of their list" for Pres./Football Ops. candidates, a source tells @Russellmania621. It would be a "death blow" to Dan Snyder if Schaffer left, the source says. https://t.co/Ih37s6fzPc— Chris Lingebach (@ChrisLingebach) December 18, 2018
This is what it's gonna take. The threat of losing Schaffer. Dan has to know that Schaffer is more valuable than Bruce.— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) December 18, 2018
Allow me to be clear on Eric Schaffer: That does NOT mean he is leaving or will. Many factors at play, but while he's been considered for lofty positions by teams & the #NFL league office before, I'm led to believe this is 1st time he is a top candidate for a team president role.— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) December 18, 2018
The #Packers claimed Kapri Bibbs this afternoon.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 17, 2018
Not sure if there’s anyone who did more charity events than Kapri the last two years. Jane will have the official count, but that’s a good dude and not just a good player heading to Green Bay. https://t.co/UD8dPNKnhH
I was told Redskins were hoping to get Kapri Bibbs back to practice squad. Not happening. Bibbs to Green Bay off waivers.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 17, 2018
But the Redskins got Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, so we're even. https://t.co/s1Ikv1nFBb— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) December 17, 2018
"All week guys just continued talking about having faith and just believing that if we continue to stay together, and fight for each other and not just give up, we still got a shot at making the playoffs."— Washington Redskins (@Redskins) December 18, 2018

Clinton Portis thinks Josh Johnson played himself into a role for next season: "Even if Colt comes back, I think Johnson gives you more of an opportunity because of scrambling ability." https://t.co/gPOEK2Ii0G— Chris Lingebach (@ChrisLingebach) December 17, 2018
Haters will say I'm a hater. I dunno. I just tweet the numbers so that sports radio hosts will have something to talk about. Kill a segment. I'm a giver. (cc Sports Radio Hosts please plug my newsletter love you all)— Dan Steinberg (@dcsportsbog) December 17, 2018
Some days I conjure up NFL mock drafts for @NBCSWashington. Today was one of those days.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) December 18, 2018

I await your approval.

Before you read more of this, I shall need you to sit. Giants are coming. Scouts do not know their exact dimensions, but they have already departed. Please do not fret. We shall drill in pairs atop each other’s shoulders to better prepare. Resolute.

After rough debut, ESPN plans to get Witten plenty of much-needed reps on TV/radio during the offseason -- MNF team of Jason Witten, Booger McFarland and Joe Tessitore reportedly to return in 2019 https://t.co/3OxdQLmrNj— Des Bieler (@DesBieler) December 18, 2018

Christian McCaffrey broke the franchise record for scrimmage yards on the Panthers' first drive, and on the second drive he became the first non-QB in Panthers history to throw a touchdown pass.— Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) December 18, 2018
Caller asks Mike Francesa if Nick Foles is headed to the Hall of Fame if he wins another Super Bowl MVP. Quick backstory: Every time Eli Manning's HoF candidacy is brought up, Mike leans on the fact that every 2-time SB MVP is in Canton. So that's where the caller is going. pic.twitter.com/PnqGse5PV8— Ƒunhouse (@BackAftaThis) December 18, 2018

There have been 7 defensive two-point conversions since NFL changed rule in 2015, per @ESPNStatsInfo. 5 have been off blocked PATs. 2 have been INT returns, including tonight’s. https://t.co/DTgNaymELV— Kevin Seifert (@SeifertESPN) December 18, 2018
BUT the Eagles are still alive, and need a win in D.C. to have any shot at overtaking the Vikings and knocking Cousins out of the playoffs. So the Skins tank to spite Cousins. Love it.— Dan Steinberg (@dcsportsbog) December 17, 2018
High school football coaches in the Richmond area earn a yearly stipend of $3,000-$6,000. But coaches in Alabama are making up to $130,000. https://t.co/noRqii3oZd— 804 Varsity (@804Varsity) December 17, 2018
John Wall once witnessed a teammate traded at halftime. That happened to Scott Brooks during his playing days. No wonder little about the NBA surprises them. Even that trade chaos. Shocking naysayers by rallying once Trevor Ariza joins is all that matters. https://t.co/8lKNTtHvkp— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) December 17, 2018
Source with knowledge of the situation: Nationals have had two brief meetings w/ Josh Harrison’s representation, in San Diego and Las Vegas. There is “mutual interest,” according to the source, but they noted that Harrison’s camp seems to be looking closely at other options.— Jesse Dougherty (@dougherty_jesse) December 17, 2018
