The Washington Redskins dream season has come to an end. Robert Griffin III stayed in the game after injuring his knee in the 1st quarter and Mike Shanahan stayed with him as the offense went dormant.

Many questioned why Griffin remained under center. Adam Carriker, who suffered a season-ending knee injury himself earlier in the year, sheds light on Griffin’s “warrior mentality” and why he was not taken out.

He and Chuck Carroll then talk about the positives in the Redskins 2012 campaign and look optimistically into the 2013 season — a year in which Carriker will return to the field.

Phillip Daniels Ribs Adam Carriker

Phillip Daniels, Director of Player Development for the Washington Redskins and former Georgia defensive lineman, joins 4th & Pain to rub the Bulldogs’ victory over Nebraska in Adam Carriker’s face.

Carriker must now wear a Notre Dame jersey on the show to pay off his debt to his former teammate. Daniels’ son, DaVaris, is a wide receiver for the Irish.

Speaking of which, the crew looks ahead to the BCS Championship. Daniels says his son will be ready to go after undergoing surgery to repair a broken collar bone earlier in the season.

Before signing off, the gang also take a look at the Redskins remarkable run to the postseason following a 3-6 start.
