Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan is 12th all-time with 167 wins; only five back from tying Bill Parcells for the 11th most all-time and only 19 shy from cracking the top 10. But, he’s also lost over 100 games in his career.
Why do I bring this up? While it leaves a bad taste in his mouth, Shanahan palate has experience losing before and, after one week, he’s isn’t anywhere near pushing a panic button. Besides—remember where the Redskins were on November 17th last year? (Hint—nowhere near the playoff race.)
Anyway, after his team broke out quite the sweat this afternoon at Redskins Park and got out of Mother Nature’s way before the storms rolled in, Shanahan addressed the media after his son and discussed the tight end situation, incorporating emulation of the crowd noise of Lambeau Field into practice, Nick Barnett and his role and building the roster through home-grown talent.
Mike Shanahan on Lambeau Field: "What we try to do is work on crowd noise." Piping crowd noise in on 3rd downs Thurs, full practice Fri.—
