On Monday, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan will lead his team out onto the field to start his fourth season at the helm. In 2010, the Redskins hired Shanahan, a two-time Super Bowl winning coach, to provide stability to an organization looking to rekindle the magic of the 1980’s.
In his first game as head coach, a Sunday Night Football matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, the Redskins squeezed out a 13-7 victory in front of a boisterous FedExField crowd that may hearing difficult all night long for the Cowboys. The next season—the Redskins stormed passed the New York Giants and defeated them 28-14 in what some were calling the shocker of the season.
Now only the Eagles stand in the Redskins way of giving Shanahan a sweep of division foes during season openers.
After the second practice of the week (if you didn’t spot them at your community pool on Labor Day now you know why—they were laboring) Shanahan spoke to the media in-depth about preparations for the Monday Night Football matchup against an Eagles led by a rookie head coach.
