“I just want to make sure that it’s my job, and I really want to play. I think this team’s going in the right direction and we’ve got a good quarterback and a good up-and-coming team,” Rocca said. “I think in the next two or three years, this team can really push forward and make, hopefully, a push for the Super Bowl. I want to be around when that happens.”
Carroll blasts field
“It was horrible. It’s a horrible field. It’s as bad as a field can get for being dry. It’s too bad,” Carroll said on ESPN 710. “And we deserve better. So I hope something will [happen], for the other teams that got to play there. It just was worn out. There was a lot of slipping and all that kind of stuff.”
Carroll said there was dirt on top of the grass and a lack of good footing.
“You’d like the perfect field and it wasn’t a perfect field, we all know that,” Shanahan said.
Shanahan said he would be open to discussing the possibility of converting FedEx Field to FieldTurf but added that he prefers grass.
Shanahan declined to talk about the cap penalty of $18 million imposed by the NFL for next season. “We’re still involved in it,” he said.
Shanahan said he had not gotten any requests for assistant coaches to interview for head coaching jobs. Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said last week he would be interested in interviewing.
Director of pro personnel Morocco Brown interviewed for the Arizona Cardinals’ general manager job last week, and it went well, according to Shanahan.
