The first thing that Mike Shanahan asked in his initial press conference at training camp was “Who’s responsible for the weather?”
Six days later, whoever that person is should get a raise, because the temperatures have held steady under ninety degrees with low humidity. No one appreciates that more than the players.
As the usual morning walkthrough got underway, the players donned their bucket hats and baseball caps, and they seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves as they ran through drills on this beautiful Tuesday morning.
The Redskins ran through offensive drills on field No. 1 as has been their custom since training camp began, and they seemed to focus on their red zone drills and short-to-intermediate passing attack. Robert Griffin III was held out, but he continued his involvement by going through mental reps while the other quarterbacks ran the offense.
One thing that is impossible to miss: Kyle Shanahan has his finger on the pulse of every aspect of the offense. In between every play, the Redskins offensive coordinator found a player to point out what he need to do better. Shanahan spent particular time with the newer players, trying to get them up to speed on what was expected of them.
His hard work seems to be paying off. There were very few miscues during the drills, and only one ball hit the ground over the last 45 minutes of practice.
It seems the Redskins are rounding into mid-season form in July.
