A morning roundup of what the local and national media have to say about the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, December 24, 2013.

.

--One reporters take on FedExField’s playing surface and if it should be changed from grass to an artificial turf.

--Five observations from the Redskins-Cowboys game including a look at head coach Mike Shanahan’s time with the Redskins. This will be the third time in Shanahan’s four seasons the Redskins have finished last in the NFC East.

--One reporter breaks down the positives and negatives of keeping head coach Mike Shanahan next year and what owner Daniel Snyder should eventually decide.

--A look at Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins and how he compares to other quarterbacks around the league.

--Former NFL head coach Bill Cower shares his thoughts on the Redskins and if head coach Mike Shanahan will be with the team next season. Cower said, “I think Mike Shanahan comes back, and makes a change of coordinators.”

--A look back at some Redskins history when the team had suffered losing seasons like the 2013 team. The Redskins are on pace to finish this season with their worst point differential since 1961 (218 points).

--One reporter looks at how the Redskins should go about revamping the defense. One of the major decisions that the Redskins coaching staff will have to make is whether they will stay in the 3-4 defensive scheme or switch to a 4-3.

--Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan remains steadfast that he will know soon after the season is over what his future will be with the Washington Redskins. Shanahan is owed $7 million for his last season and his staff is reportedly owed $6 million.

--A Redskins injury update as linebacker Nick Barnett tore his MCL vs. Dallas and linebacker Brian Orakpo is day-to-day with a groin strain.

--Quarterback Kirk Cousins did not have one of his better games vs. the Cowboys on Sunday as he experienced back to back one point loses in his first two starts this season. Cousins only threw for 197 yards vs. the Cowboys in comparison to 381 yards passing vs. Atlanta a week prior.

--Former Redskins receiver Art Monk spoke about current receiver Pierre Garcon and Garcon’s record breaking single season reception record vs. the Cowboys. Monk said, “I’m excited for him, this is an opportunity that doesn’t come along very often.”

--A look at potential draft prospects from the Beef O’Brady’s Bowl. One writer feels that the Redskins should look at defensive players from both East Carolina and Ohio to add depth to their roster.

--Why the Redskins have struggled on special teams this season. The Redskins have allowed 646 yards on punt returns alone thins season.

--A look at snap counts vs. the Cowboys broken down by position including fullback Darrel Young’s progress. Young played his most snaps (24) since Week 7 vs. the Bears (31) and looks to be more healthy after dealing with hamstring issues.

--A breakdown of what caused an illegal shift resulting in a penalty in the second quarter. The Redskins were unable to convert a touchdown in the redzone and settled for a field goal.

--Despite having two sacks vs. Dallas, the Redskins defense could not pressure quarterback Tony Romo during key moments that resulted in a 24-23 loss to the Cowboys.
