Griffin III: Newest Member Of The Media?

Posted by Andrew Walker on January 2, 2013 – 3:05 pm

It wasn’t quite good enough schtick to be a segment on MTV’s “Punk’d,” but Robert Griffin III pulled one on Mike Shanahan today.

The rookie quarterback sat in on his head coach’s weekly press conference at Redskins Park, and even took to the microphone to ask Shanahan a question.

Are you eager to hear from Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan about the state of the team heading into next Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles?

You’re not alone.

Fortunately, you can watch Shanahan’s weekly 3 p.m. press conference LIVE today by going to our homepage at www.redskins.com.

Among several other topics, Shanahan will likely address the team’s playoff implications after defeating the Cleveland Browns, 38-21, yesterday in Cleveland, as well as the status of rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, who sat out yesterday’s game with a sprained LCL in his right knee.

And, as always, for those unable to tune in to Shanahan’s weekly press conference today, you can follow along by checking out the Redskins’ Twitter feed.

Shanahan’s Post-Game Presser In Hindsight

Posted by Brian Tinsman on September 5, 2011 – 10:03 am

AP Image

With head coach Mike Shanahan’s press-conference-poker-face, I wouldn’t even play the man in Go Fish.

But after reviewing his post-game presser from the Bucs game, there was some foreshadowing as far as this weekend’s eventual roster composition was concerned.

On the head-to-head efforts of running backs Evan Royster and Ryan Torain:

“Y’know, I thought both guys did a pretty good job when they were in there.  Too bad Evan had that mild concussion.  I would have like to see him play a little bit more.  I thought Torain did a pretty good job for not getting a lot of practice time.”

Given that running backs Tim Hightower and Roy Helu didn’t play, it seemed like this game was used to determine the identity of the third back.  Regardless of whether or not there was a favorite going into the game, Torain carried the load on Thursday night.

Torain makes the roster, Royster does not.

On Markus White’s performance:

“Yeah, he looked like he put some pressure on the quarterback tonight.  He has good size, right in that 270-275 range, and I thought he showed himself well.”

As a mid-seventh-round pick making a position change at the professional level, White would have to fit anyone’s definition of a dark horse roster pick at the beginning of camp.  But as of Sept. 3, White is a member of the Redskins, and likely improved his stock with a big fumble recovery and return.

On Donte Stallworth catching the fourth quarter touchdown:

“Well that’s what you’re trying to do is show people that you can make plays.  That was a big play he made at the end of the game.  You can see his speed.  Obviously he kind of bobbled it a little bit, but he came down with it and stayed focused.  It was a nice catch.”

It isn’t clear what Stallworth’s standing was with the organization before the play, but catching a 41-yard bomb for a touchdown usually increases anyone’s stock.  If that play was, in fact, the one that put him over the top, then he waited until the last possible moment to open some eyes.

Which is why the fourth preseason game is nothing to sleep on.

Shanahan talked briefly about his approach to the preseason and how his roster composition would be determined.

“You’re just trying to give guys a chance to show what they can do, and give some guys some opportunities,” he said.  “I know you could feel it before the game with a lot of the starters out, those guys were nervous trying to show people what they could do.  Their careers are on the line and they’re trying to make a football team.”

He concluded: “All I’m gonna say is we’ve got some tough decisions to make, and we’ll make those decisions over the next couple days.”

As for the process to determine the practice squad: “You know your players obviously better than anybody, but sometimes people will do their homework, and they’ll take a chance and get a player–just like we might.”

Shanahan Doesn’t Consider This A Rebuilding Year

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 29, 2011 – 9:30 am

With a dozen draft picks and 23 rookies on the roster, a popular label being placed on the 2011 Redskins, is that this is ‘a rebuilding year.’

While this phrase carries multiple connotations, head coach Mike Shanahan rejected the classification in his Saturday afternoon press conference.

“I never talk about anything as ‘rebuilding,” he said.  “When you use the term ‘rebuilding,’ that’s kind of an excuse for not winning.  So you always believe you can win.”

So far, Shanahan has led his young team to a 2-1 preseason record, with three solid showings by the starting units.  Much is still yet to be determined about the layout of this roster, but the coaching staff doesn’t appear to be making excuses for performance.

Mike Shanahan Gets Downright Funny

Posted by Brian Tinsman on July 29, 2011 – 8:27 pm

AP Image

You don’t have to drive all the way out to Ashburn to realize that head coach Mike Shanahan is an intense guy.  He has the sternest poker faces in all of pro football, and could probably stare down Clint Eastwood himself.  Whether he’s patrolling the sidelines in front of 90,000 fans or stalking to the kitchen to refill his water bottle, he is one of the most focused people I’ve ever met.

But sometimes he makes jokes–and nobody knows if they can laugh.

That’s what happened at tonight’s media session, on several occasions.  I don’t mean to say that the man doesn’t have a sense of humor, but he often has to clarify that it was a joke afterwards.

He started off his comedic shtick tonight talking about the effort he saw out of John Beck today:  “John’s done a good job on the first day of practice.  I wouldn’t put him in the Pro Bowl yet, but he’s close…That’s a joke.”

Okay Coach, maybe you’re not ready for the Apollo, but that’s a solid start.  What else do you have?

When asked about how the heat affected the players out on the field today, Shanahan shot back quickly with: “I think just the coaches were affected by the heat.”

This time it was accompanied by a smile, and the gathered media knew to laugh.  He was on a roll.  I could smell more wittiness on it’s way.

When asked about the more-intense-than-usual rush on free agent negotiations, Shanahan talked about spending the night on a cot at the Redskins facility last night: “Yeah, I have one of those rollouts.  It’s about $200.  I charged it to Dan though.”

Shanahan wrapped up the media session with a witty remark on solving the punter crisis by signing veteran punter Sav Rocca:  “I sure hope we did.  Well, first of all, I’m hoping we don’t have to punt.  But if we punt, I’m happy it’s him.”

Comedy gold.  Good for Shanahan, for showing a more relaxed side.  I think that now that he’s in his second season with the team and the media, combined with the return of football, Shanahan is right back in his element.
