redskinsanalyst Redskins' Gruden: Murphy must 'grow up very fast'

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said that losing outside linebacker Brian Orakpo to a season-ending torn pectoral muscle was “a major blow” and that Trent Murphy, Orakpo’s replacement, will have to “grow up very fast”. Although Gruden conceded that Orakpo, who has half a sack this season, had not lived up to the expectations created by his franchise tag and accompanying $11.45 million salary, he said that he was still a valuable member of the defensive unit. “His production may not be where people think it should be but he’s still been playing very well against the run and has been disruptive in the passing game and that will be a big loss,” said Gruden.

Murphy was the Redskins top draft pick this year, going in the second round. He was supposed to spend this year as a role player and possibly move into as a starter in 2015. Starting Monday against the Cowboys it all changes for the former Stanford defensive end. “Trent’s got to move up, he’s got to step up his game,” said Gruden. “He’s got to play better, he’s got to play more physical at the point of attack. We’re playing against the No. 1 rushing offense in the National Football League. He’s going to have to be very good at the point of attack and then transition into pass rush against some very good tackles. He’s going to have his work cut out for him, he’s going to have to grow up very fast.” The injury to Orakpo is unfortunate but there is some upside to it for the Redskins organization. Orakpo is going to be a free agent at the end of the season. They drafted Murphy with the thought that he might be able to develop into Orakpo’s replacement. Now they will have what amounts to a nine-game tryout to see if Murphy can handle the job or if the will have to look elsewhere to find a replacement for Orakpo, assuming that the decide to let him move on.

redskinsanalyst Gruden: McCoy will start for Redskins vs. Dallas if RG3 not ready

We don't know if Robert Griffin III will be starting at quarterback for the Redskins against the Cowboys. But we know who will start if Griffin can't play.
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said today that Colt McCoy, who led the Redskins to a win over the Titans after taking over in the second half, will start if Griffin can't. "We'll move forward with Colt," said Gruden.

That means that Kirk Cousins, who started five games after Griffin suffered a dislocated ankle in Week 2, has essentially been benched. He committed 11 turnovers in those five starts, including two in the first half against Tennessee. That prompted Gruden to make the decision to bench him at halftime and move to McCoy in the second half.

redskinsanalyst For Redskins to match Peyton Manning numbers, go back to 1989

What Manning has done in 17 seasons, starting his rookie year in 1998, took a collection of Redskins quarterbacks significantly longer to achieve. In fact, to count to 510 touchdown passes in Washington, you must go all the way back to 1989. You know, when the first George Bush was President. What else happened in 1989? The Berlin Wall came down and a gallon of gas cost just $.97.

redskinsanalyst Redskins DE Stephen Bowen pleased with season debut

Veteran defensive end Stephen Bowen experienced two wins on Sunday: the Redskins beat the Titans and he emerged from his season debut feeling encouraged about his surgically repaired right knee. “It felt great, man,” Bowen said after Washington’s 19-17 victory.

Bowen, who missed the first six weeks of the season while on the PUP list, returned to practice last week and was activated Saturday, allowing him to suit up for his first game since undergoing season ending microfracture surgery last December.

The 30-year-old played nine snaps on defense and two on special teams. He recorded one tackle, a fourth quarter stop on Titans running back Bishop Sankey.

Afterward Bowen acknowledged being a bit rusty. But he was otherwise pleased with his performance and, more important, happy with how his knee responded. “You just never know,” he said. “It held up good in practice but it’s a little bit more violent in a real game. I came out feeling good.” Bowen was deployed primarily in short yardage situations, though he said he expects his role to grow in the coming weeks as he gets reacclimated to game speed. “It was hard for me to get in a rhythm,” Bowen said of playing a limited role. “But next week I’ll get some more plays. I knew that coming into this week.”
