Playoffs!? Don’t talk about Playoffs!
Those were the famous words of former Saints and Colts coach Jim Mora, who has been quoted about a billion times anyone starts talking about the postseason before it happens.
Turns out that Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is not only not thinking about the playoffs, he’s already got his sights set on 2013.
Check out the quote after Sunday’s loss to the Panthers at home.
“You lose a game like that, now you’re playing to see who obviously is going to be on your football team for years to come. I’ll get a chance to evaluate players and see where we’re at,” Shanahan said, according to the Washington Post. “Obviously, we’re not out of it statistically, but now we find out what type of character we’ve got and how guys keep on fighting through the rest of the season.”
So get ready to see players that shouldn’t be on the field much, as those words above make it sound like the rest of the year will be auditions for the future for Redskins players.
