Mike Shanahan Gives Up on 2012 – Ready to Audition Players

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.

    Sounds like a man on the way out. if things don’t turn around for the SKINS in the division, I don’t think SHANAHAN finishes out his five-year plan. i predict he comes up one year short.

    I said in the spring, that the REDSKINS should trade down, pick up another two picks in the top two rounds and get some players for the o-line, and d-bacvkfield. Then go all in on MATT BARKLEY in 2013.

    Giving up the top pick in the next two drafts combined with the loss of cap space is going to destroy SHANAHAN’s tenure as a REDSKINS coach.

    I abso;utely love RGIII, but the timing wasn’t right, and the cost was too high to be successful. DAN SNYDER will rue the day he fell in love with the former BAYLOR BEAR. Should never put one man ahead of the necessary infrastructure.
