[ laughter ] >> so the answer is yes. i think everybody liked that. we've seen him excited before, but he took it to a gnaw levnew after yesterday's historic win. have you seen him like that at redskins park behind closed doors? not really. it comes after the amazing win, the intensity and the unbelievable historic comeback victory down 24-0 in the first half, cousins and he office target leading the back and the final drive and the magic with
cousins and 80 yards a drive in two minutes and he was poised, confident and finding jordan reid with the go-ahead t.d. and largest comeback in teen history. coach jay gruden. yeah, i like that, and i'd like to see more of it. >> he's shown flashes of being one heck of a quarterback and he's had times when you scratch your head sometimes and that's what a lot of quarterbacks go through from time to time and he's been announced a starting quarterback for the first time in his career and i think he felt he needed to earn the respect and he was excited after the game as we all were, but i think you'll see more and more of that passion with the more success that he has. >> you like that? >> more passion from kirk, now that i'd like to see. after ryan kerrigan, it couldn't have come at a better time and broke a bone in his right hand yesterday and today he had surgery and talked to him via text and he said he is doing great and the hope is he won't
miss any time and he'll return in time for the next game and he'll probably have to wear a cast with the new england patriots. jason, you heard me right, the new england patriots, the super bowl champs. they are up next and the redskins have one practice tomorrow and then they're off for five days and you know they're thinking about that next game already. >> the patriots look like the best team in the nfl right now and that should be an interesting week after the bye week and thanks so much, carol and we'll move on to the wizards and a sad news for the organization and for everyone around the nba and former wizards head coach flip saunders passed away to cancer and he was being treated for hodgkins lymphoma and they talked about his legacy and the impact he had with their professional careers. when they first got drafted and he worked out and be with his family and they brought me right away and wanted me to be great and they wanted me to be well and they deal with tough times
early on and we'll keep working. >>. >> he was a good friend for me many times to pick me up when i've been fired or when something in my family has gone wrong and it's a tough day. >> it is officially game week for the wizards and they're getting ready for their season opener this wednesday in orlando and the wizards went all four last season. outside the verizon center, quite the honor for point guard john wall and you know you've made it when they dedicate a bus to you honored by the ride of fame today and the double decker sightseeing bus complete with it is own seat will join fellow d.c. superstar alex o vefrp kve with this honor. kind of a big deal. >> we want him to be on the big wall and the mural thing.
