The Giants may have given the Redskins' remaining opponents the key for stopping their league-leading rushing game.
Though the Redskins surpassed 100 rushing yards Sunday for the 11th consecutive game, 88 of those yards were gained by quarterback Robert Griffin III. Morris managed only 11 carries for 26 yards, and he gained 15 yards on two carries in the second half.
Almost a year after the Seattle game, questions of trust between Robert Griffin III and the Shanahans continue to be asked.
Mike Shanahan, Kyle Shanahan and Robert Griffin III continue to field questions about their commitment and trust in each other. It has been a theme that has dogged the Redskins since late last season when Griffin first injured his right knee.
Much was made of 49ers LB Ahmad Brooks saying that Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was not healthy and should not be playing. Kyle Shanahan does not agree.
Both young QBs Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III emerged last season with a blast of success. This season, little has come easy.
Pierre Garcon is nearing personal record for receptions and yards in a single season. And if he stays on his current pace, he might also secure a place in the Redskins' record book.
After being cast aside, Fred Davis might get a second chance Monday night vs. the 49ers because of Jordan Reed's injury.
Leonard Hankerson's knee injury will keep him out for the rest of the season, but how bad is it? Head coach Mike Shanahan gave an update on Thursday.
After saying the Redskins' offense seemed predictable against the Eagles, Robert Griffin III sought out offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan to explain his comments.
"You don't say anything to the guys when it comes to that [leadership]," Griffin said. "The second you start changing and letting what outside people say affect what you do is the time that guys start to not believe in you. So you don't do that. You go out to practice every day ready to work."
When the Redskins squared off with the Eagles in September, it's fair to say neither the offense nor defense were ready. On Sunday, Kyle Shanahan is looking forward to changing that.
Leonard Hankerson is getting plenty of opportunities and because of the way the NFL works many of them are at the expense of fellow receiver Josh Morgan.
Houston coach Gary Kubiak collapsed leaving the field at halftime of the Texans' game Sunday night against Indianapolis and was taken by ambulance to a hospital.
Sunday, after his starting lineup is introduced before a hostile crowd at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, the Broncos will show a highlight clip of the Shanahan years, which included those back-to-back titles in 1997 and 1998. It's a nice gesture, but not one Shanahan cares to think about.
"I don't see the brace affect [Griffin] at all. He runs the same to me," Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said. "He looks as good as he always has. He's been cleared since the beginning of training camp so it's not like this has just happened. We've seen him for a month fully 100 percent."
"The more football [White] is around, the more he works at it, the better he'll get," Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said. "With the attitude that he does have he will get better because he's as hard on himself as anybody I've been around. Everything is his fault. That's the way he looks at it."
