Mike Shanahan On Cousins, RGIII & Future

On Monday, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan addressed the media for his usual press conference dissecting the highs and lows of the game just completed.

Obviously there was a lot to discuss between Kirk Cousins’ performance, Brian Orakpo adding to his sack collection, both Alfred Morris and Santana Moss having an up-and-down day and the seven turnovers almost being overcome by a late drive–but an unsuccessful two-point conversion instead left the Redskins with nothing more than a “morale victory” if you believe in those things.

Shanahan dove head first into the sea of media sharks and addressed everything that was thrown his way.

    Offseason plan for Redskins –

    Keep Shanahan and son
    Fire DC
    Fire special team coach
    Trade RG3 for first round pick possibly 2
    Trade Alfred Morris for first round pick (Helu is barely a down grade if at all since he can catch the ball and is a heck of a blocker)
    Use cap space for Defense
    Cousins starter for next year with minor upgrades to offensive line and maybe 1 more receiver (really like Nick Williams as a replacement for Moss)

    Result back in the playoffs, quarterback of the future and multiple 1st round picks on team

    Trade RG3 and Morris? Are you a Dallas Cowboys fan…..Morris is the epitome of redskins football, not helu. Helu is a great compliment to Morris and not many teams can say they have a really strong running back as the backup. The redskins have historically been a smashmouth, run the ball first team, just remember Riggins and Portis as a couple of examples. The redskins has historically had a defense that teams fear and a running game that isn’t scared to punch you in the mouth. RG3 will probably prove to be the best qb we have had since Doug Williams, so please stop bringing up crap about trading these guys. Get rid of Shanahan’s son and Haslett, I also agree 250% with the firing of the special teams coach. Kyle Shanahan has the best rushing offense and still calls pass plays 40 times week in and week out, WTF…..The redskins defense has been nothing short of a joke since haslett has been hired, I prefer allowing as few points as possible over turnovers anyday.

    The big mistake was having Griffin on at all after his knee injury last season. Just looking at the replay it was immediately obvious that he had a tear in the knee, and when he got on in the playoff game he could barely walk and had no business being on a football field with 300 pound guys trying to tackle him. Watching him reminded me more of animal cruelty than an athletic contest.
    The result of this ridiculous nonsense was aggravation to the knee, a longer rehab which started 6 weeks later than it should have and a terrible season all round. RGIII should have refused to enter the pitch, and when he was too stupid to do that the entire coachung staff should have told him to gtfo and go to rehab with his knee. Poor coaching and a poor decision by Griffin.

    The big mistake was letting Griffin back on the field for as much as a snap after his knee injury last season. just from the replay it was obvious there would be at least on tear in the knee, and by the playoffs he could barely walk, and still he was on the field for his weekly does of animal cruelty at the hand of healthy 300 pound men.
    He should have refused to play, and since he was too stupid to do that the coaching staff should have told him to gtfo to rehab with his busted knee. Since everybody went collectively insane and let him play anyway the injury was aggravated, the rehab prolonged and also started six weeks later than it should have, which is the secret reason RGIII lost the off season.
    This abominable season is the reward for all this incredible stupidity. So enjoy…

    Solution:Fire Jim Haslett.The biggest NFL defense man(Sean Taylor was) London Fletcher will be retire.Give him the Defensive Coordinator position,he know what he do.Kick Special team coach.Keep RG3 and Morris but use rookie offense plays(it was more attractive than this year) I liked Shanahans but I started to hate them after last games.Mike said he want to win but he killed our team with last play vs Falcons.I say it wasn’t a fatal tragic year because we had unfortune.We could have won 8 game(Vikings,Giants,2nd Eagles game,Falcons,Broncos)instead of 3.We lost first 3 match because we waste a lot of time with RG3 injury.He frightened about his injury but after 3games he got to know he could run than last year.We had the most running yard until 49ers game so we hadn’t got problem with running. HTTR SEAN TAYLOR WILL HELP US.GO REDSKINS.

    Disgusting! RGIII’s Father trying to get the Baylor Coach for Him! I have been a Fan since the 1970’s, and I find it “incomprehendable” to read the “drama and distractions” that RGIII is creating for this TEAM. No wonder many want to leave and no longer be a part of what once was the Washington Redskins’s TEAM!

    If this TEAM is built around the “1”,I will be hanging up my Redskins apparel. How sad!

    May the TEAM Player, Kirk Cousins, who played a great game against the Atlanta Falcons stay. Nay the self centered one go and take the “drama” with him, so the Redskins TEAM can get back to focusing on Football and WIN Games!
