Latest Mike Shanahan Items
Not so long ago, Mike Shanahan and Mike Holmgren were the resident geniuses of their respective conferences.
Leonard Hankerson figured to provide the Washington Redskins one of few reasons for hope over the final seven games.
John Beck's run as the Washington Redskins' starting quarterback is over after three miserable losses.
In Week 10, Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan elected to make a quarterback change and gave Rex Grossman the starting nod against the Miami Dolphins. The results, however, were the same as Washington lost its fifth straight game to fall to 3-6 on the season. Grossman might have thrown for 215 yards, but he also threw two interceptions and the offense failed to get on track, despite a breakout performance from rookie wide receiver Leonard Hankerson (eight catches, 106 yards).
For a team in the throes (or is it the overthrows?) of what the Washington Redskins are in the throes of, there is no bottom. Two losses become three. Three turn into four. And then you run the streak to five with a 20-9 loss on Sunday to the previously 1-7 Miami Dolphins.
Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis and left tackle Trent Williams face disciplinary action from the NFL after violating the league's substance abuse policy by testing positive for recreational drugs, according to an ESPN report.
The Washington Redskins are circling on a carousel of losses. Round and round they go. This disaster of a season got away from them last month because of Rex Grossman's interceptions. It then twirled to John Beck's poor timing. And on Sunday it whipped back around to another costly Grossman pick.
Washington Redskins quarterback John Beck split first-team practice repetitions with Rex Grossman in preparation for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed Saturday.
Graham Gano concluded his first full NFL season on high alert. The Washington Redskins' kicker was on shaky ground after 2010 because he missed 11 field goals, tied for most in the NFL. Coaches believed in his potential, but he had to validate it with production in 2011 — or else.
