Posted by Andrew Walker on August 31, 2012 – 10:22 am

Have a question about Redskins football that you’ve always wanted answered?

Do you want to be on “The Mike Shanahan Coach’s Show?”

For many of you, I think the answer to both of these questions is, “Are you crazy? Of course!”

It’s now easier than ever to get a chance to have Shanahan himself answer your questions.

On this week’s edition of “The Mike Shanahan Coach’s Show,” head coach Mike Shanahan sat down with hosts Larry Michael and Charles Mann to discuss the states of the Redskins.

Among the various topics of conversation, the issue of Redskins legacy came up with the current players.  Michael related a story about rookie receiver Leonard Hankerson not knowing who Sonny Jurgensen was, but later finding him downstairs reading up on the history mural.

Shanahan surmised that some players were better than others at learning the team history, but that it was a process that takes place over time.

“Sometimes you get these young players that are in their own world, they’ve been in college,” he explained.  “And all of a sudden when they get to be pro athletes, they realize that, ‘This is not just about me.  This is about a team, this is about an organization.  Let’s take a look at the history.  Let’s take a look at the people that have really kind of paved the way for us, to have the opportunities that we have today.'”

This Sunday, the Redskins will be witness to 80-plus Redskins alumni on the field before the game.  At halftime, Hall Of Famer Chris Hanburger will receive his ring on the field, and will address the fans at FedExField.

All of this is done for the alumni and the fans, but Shanahan thinks there could be residual effects on the current Redskins players.

“As they do get older, in a very short amount of time, these players learn to respect the game.”

Listen to his plans for the running game, O-line, and San Francisco, below: Read more »

Sonny Jurgensen Returns To The Coach's Show

Posted by Matt Terl on December 24, 2010 – 3:01 pm

As I mentioned briefly yesterday, Sonny Jurgensen will be joining Larry Michael on The Mike Shanahan Coach’s Show this Saturday and next, filling in for Lindsay Czarniak who is on vacation followed by assignment. It’s not exactly a new challenge for Jurgensen.

“I did Coach’s Shows with Richie Petitbon, Joe Gibbs, George Allen, Jack Pardee, Norv Turner,” Jurgensen says. “I’ve done Coach’s Shows for a long, long time.”

But that’s not to say that there’s not a challenge to doing ANY coach’s show. “Coaches don’t tell you anything,” Jurgensen says, laughing. “I mean, they can’t afford to.”

Which puts someone co-hosting a coach’s show in a slightly awkward position.
