I think sometimes that's why he looks a little bit different when he does cut. I think it bothers him just a hair, but it's something that he has to wear."
Mon, 31 Dec 2012 12:29:24 -0800

Washington Redskins players are defending their head coach Mike Shanahan after he seemingly wrote off their season and then said his comments had been misinterpreted. "I thought he clarified exactly what he meant, how it wasn't portrayed the way it needed to be," said LB London Fletcher. "He let us know exactly how he feels about this season, how he feels about the guys in this locker room. Coach Shanahan's a proven winner, a two-time Super Bowl-winning head coach. He's not a person who gives up on a season." TE Chris Cooley added, "We're frustrated to lose football games, but no one in this locker room would ever quit and there's no coach that would never give up."
Mon, 05 Nov 2012 10:03:49 -0800
Updating a previous item, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan insists that he's not giving up on his team's 2012 season, and that a Week 9 postgame quote that indicated as much is being misinterpreted.

Anytime you have division games, you have a great chance."
Mon, 05 Nov 2012 08:48:05 -0800
Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan essentially waived the white flag following the team's Week 9 loss, saying players are now working for jobs next season. "When you lose a game like that, now you're playing to see who, obviously, is going to be on your football team for years to come," Shanahan said. Players were not particularly happy with their head coach following those comments. "Being 3-6 really (stinks) because right now we're on the outside looking in," LB Lorenzo Alexander said. "I'm not thinkin' about next year. That's an offseason thing for me. But you know it's hard when you see yourself in that type of position and your head coach is saying those types of things. It's disappointing."

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan indicated Saturday, Sept. 1, that he has settled on a starting running back for Week 1, but he is keeping it a secret. He said RBs Roy Helu Jr. and Evan Royster have made "tremendous progession" in pass protection, so the starter is believed to be one of the two.
Fantasy Tip: Helu, Royster and undrafted rookie RB Alfred Morris are each expected to see touches in the opener against the New Orleans Saints. This type of secretive behavior by Shanahan gives fantasy owners fits. Look for Shanny to play the hot hand throughout the season, so be prepared to shuffle your lineup accordingly.

"Obviously, you look at the film and you like what you see on film. As we all know, from the collegiate level to the pro level there are growing pains. Every quarterback goes through it.

However, that's not a given, according to Shanahan, who said the issue of whether the prized rookie starts immediately will depend on the young quarterback's progress during the offseason and training camp.

"Well, I think we were a playoff-caliber offense this year," Shanahan said. "But we didn't have the depth that you need to go through a season. You can't lose your left tackle, your left guard, your center. You can't lose your starting running back and tight end, especially your tight end that's your best blocker in Chris Cooley..."
Wed, 25 Jan 2012 05:29:35 -0800

People that usually do have that guy are consistently winning."

I thought we might keep those players a little longer than we did." The Redskins have lost at least 10 games for the second consecutive season.
