Will it be a normal post-loss Monday at Redskins Park today? Or will there be some huge news coming out of Ashburn?
Faced with the ever-increasing reality that he may not be back as the Redskins' coach next season, Shanahan insisted Monday afternoon that he would indeed like to remain with the team. "You always want to come back," he said. "I love these guys."
Why doesn't Mike Shanahan just quit? Go back to the $7 million he is owed for the final year of his contract. If he walks, he doesn't get the money. Dan Snyder, no fool, is no doubt aware of what's happening. If he can wait for Shanahan to get so fed up that he quits, Snyder doesn't have to pay out that load of cash.
Griffin, who has completed 60.1 percent of his passes for 3,203 yards, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions this season, said after Sunday's loss that he thought starting Sunday against the Falcons is "not an issue." Kirk Cousins, meanwhile, said he would prepare as though if it were an option, though he did not plan to dwell on it.
Controversy surrounding the Washington Redskins will not be letting up anytime soon, at least not according to head coach Mike Shanahan.
Robert Griffin III is clearly growing frustrated with the continuing controversy swirling around the Redskins this year.
"Not going to talk about that stuff, guys," he said. "It's not relevant to the football game, it's not relevant to my life, which is my answer to that and it's just ridiculous."
Mike Shanahan declined to answer questions about an ESPN report that he nearly quit his job earlier this year.
The Chiefs improved to 10-3 by dominating an opponent that offered little resistance. They scored on their first four possessions, sacked Robert Griffin III five times and Kirk Cousins once, and returned a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns.
According to a media report, some in the Redskins' front office believe that the relationship between Dan Snyder and Mike Shanahan is damaged beyond repair.
Robert Griffin III is not a fan of all the media reports on off-field issues.
Mike Shanahan nearly resigned as coach after the season ended due to tensions over Dan Snyder's treatment of RG3. For more on this story watch Redskins Post Game Live on CSN after the Chiefs game.
As the Redskins 2013 season looks to be sinking, many have focused on salary cap restrictions as a reason the team lacks depth. But next season, those salary cap restrictions come off the books.
I've been a Washington Redskins fan my entire life. I'll continue to be a Redskins fan, not a Bravehearts fan or a fan of any other name of a football team from Washington. The memories of going to Redskins games and donning Redskins apparel has been an integral part of my life. It just would not be the same if a rich tradition of history, a team that has had its name since 1933, were to suddenly take on a new identity.
I was recently interview by Tim Devaney for an article concerning the renaming of the Washington Redskins ("What's in a name? Dumping 'Redskins' could have a major financial impact," Web, Oct. 17). My first comment before stating anything else to Mr. Delaney was that if Native Americans are offended by the "Redskins" name and moniker, then the name should be changed. Getting that data is key to knowing the right direction in which to take the team.
Mr. Snyder also told a story of how former Redskins coach George Allen personally went to an American Indian reservation to get the team's logo designed.
He mentioned surveys finding that only a small minority of American Indians find the term offensive.
