The Redskins were cut short this afternoon after only about 15 minutes on the field. Weather forecasts put the chance of rain at only about 25 percent, but what they really meant was 25 minutes of raining cats and dogs with accompanying lightning.
Unfortunately, this is valuable practice time that I’m sure coaches aren’t happy to lose. Especially with free agents learning the playbook from the sidelines, this is lost time for both physical and mental reps.
Ironically, head coach Mike Shanahan answered questions on the topic of a proposed practice bubble being constructed for the team. At about noon, he blew off the question. By 4:30, I bet he wanted that bubble.
“I just know they are going to take care of business,” he said. “We get some bad days where we have to game plan for it. To be honest with you, I have more problems than the bubble right now. I’m trying to concentrate on those other areas. We will have a plan to practice with inclement weather if the situation arises.”
Coach, I have a follow-up question now.
Many players hit the gym after they came off the field. Check out the full video of Shanahan’s briefing below:
