Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan disagreed with QB Robert Griffin III's comments that indicated the Philadelphia Eagles knew the Redskins' plays in Week 11. "Our first year everyone played us with eight-man fronts, sometimes almost nine-man fronts," Shanahan said. "When you do that you have guys wide open like we did last year. That's one reason the play-action was so good. This year (teams are saying), 'We're playing you more passing and you have to earn the right in that run game.' Which we've been able to do. You're not always going to get that deep ball so you have to dump it off and be patient. That's part of the NFL. No matter what quarterback you're going against, no matter what system you go against, you have to relate or adjust your game plan accordingly. That's one of the reasons we ran the ball so much against a team that was very good at stopping the run."

Fantasy Tip: Absolutely no surprise here, as Week 1 has been the goal all along. As the positive reports continue to pile up, there is no reason to move Griffin III down the draft board at this point, as he will again be a top fantasy quarterback. Continue to check in though just to make sure there are no setbacks.

Monitor his progress closely as the preseason moves on
Wed, 12 Jun 2013 16:29:47 -0700
Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said the club doesn't have to eliminate the option running elements in order to protect QB Robert Griffin III (knee). Echoing his father, head coach Mike Shanahan, Kyle Shanahan contended that the read-option plays safeguard Griffin by taking steam out of opposing pass-rushers. Griffin was hurt on improvisational runs and merely needs to work on picking his spots to slide or throw the ball away when facing QB pressure. The younger Shanahan said that they might have to adapt more as defenses plan better for the system.
Fantasy Tip: Griffin is a borderline QB1 on draft day with well-known upside. If you take him, just make sure to draft a capable backup in case he can't start the season on time.
Tue, 11 Jun 2013 12:31:00 -0700

Didn't want to practice him today or tomorrow, but he'll be ready for camp, a little bit unusual ear infection that he does have, but the doctors advised him not to practice."

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (foot, Achilles') said it has been a long time since he has felt as healthy as he currently does after participating in practice Thursday, June 6. Head coach Mike Shanahan was happy to have him back on the practice field. "It's fun to have him out there," Shanahan said. "Hopefully he keeps on getting better and better. In the meantime, we have a guy that weighs 225 pounds [the Redskins list Helu at 215]. He's under that 4.5 40, has the receiving skills and the opportunity to make the big play. So it's good to have him back and a chance to compete."
Fri, 24 May 2013 11:52:01 -0700
Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said that QB Robert Griffin III could go down as one of the best quarterbacks to play the game if he has another year like 2012.

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan stressed that QB Robert Griffin III (knee) must continue to guard against rushing his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Fantasy Tip: Griffin may be tempted to rush his recovery to be ready by Week 1, but it is something he will have to stay away from. As long as he continues to make progress over the summer and avoid set backs, his fantasy football value should continue to rise.
Wed, 24 Apr 2013 10:30:33 -0700

"We don't have to worry about him re-injuring that LCL. The brace helps him at least mentally know that he's not putting too much pressure on it. 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."
