The media circus surrounding the benching of Robert Griffin would be astronomical. But there is always a media circus waltzing around Redskins Park, so what would change?
The Washington Redskins are officially eliminated from postseason contention, but it appears likely familiar faces will continue to play on Sunday afternoon.
The NFL says Sunday night’s officiating crew should have stopped play and eliminated confusion about the down and distance at the end of the New York Giants’ 24-17 victory over the Washington Redskins.
Is it time for Dan Snyder to make a coaching change or does Robert Griffin III, salary cap penalties, and a 5-year plan buy the Mike Shanahan another season?
The naysayers who claim that Griffin has regressed as a pocket passer may want to rethink that notion, as Griffin’s strides were evident against the Giants. Robert Griffin also added 88 yards rushing on only 12 carries and was certainly the best player on the field for Washington.
With a quarter of the season still to be played, as a whole Washington will be playing for pride while individual players will be auditioning to keep their jobs.
Including a pair of Super Bowls apiece, Mike Shanahan and Tom Coughlin have won a combined 345 games as head coaches in the NFL.
Jordan Reed is expected to return Sunday when the Washington Redskins host the New York Giants.
With a dismal record and just five games reaming on the schedule, Mike Shanahan says everyone associated with the Washington Redskins is playing for their jobs.
If the Redskins play with a similar lack of desire Sunday night against the visiting New York Giants, then it will be time for Shanahan to go and for yet another re-start in Ashburn.
