Panic only brings more panic from wxy1123's blog

ASHBURN, Va. Carlos Hyde Jersey . -- Mike Shanahan, still for now the coach of the Washington Redskins, made a surprising reversal Monday and said he might bench a "100 per cent" healthy Robert Griffin III for the rest of the season to keep the quarterback from getting hurt. Shanahan essentially declared it might be more beneficial for Griffin to get off-season snaps in May rather than game experience over the next three weeks. The coach, for the first time, then explicitly left open the possibility that he might not return next year, saying his future will be decided after he meets with owner Dan Snyder at the end of the season. Shanahans departure appears more likely than ever after the Redskins (3-10) were embarrassed 45-10 by Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, a fifth straight loss that ensures a third season of double-digit losses in the coachs four seasons in Washington. "You always want to come back. I love these guys," Shanahan said. "Whatll happen at the end of the season, well get a chance, Dan and I, to sit down and decide -- hell make the final decision on whats the best interest of the Washington Redskins. Ill give my opinion and what I think, and obviously hell make the final decision." Shanahan said he has a "good relationship" with Snyder and spoke with the owner on Monday. The coach didnt go into detail about the conversation other than to say it involved Griffin. "He asked me about my relationship with Robert," Shanahan said. "And I said I was his coach, his head football coach, and not necessarily his best friend, dont need to be his best friend. I want to make him the best quarterback possible." A team spokesman said Snyder was not available for comment. Nevertheless, Shanahan has increasingly appeared to be the odd man out in the triangle of owner, coach and quarterback. Shanahan and Griffin have publicly clashed this season, and Shanahan said he hasnt discussed the possible benching with Griffin and wont do so until after making a final decision on Wednesday. On Sunday, when asked if he had any doubts he would start the upcoming game against the Atlanta Falcons, Griffin replied: "No, thats not an issue." In discussing the reasons for sitting Griffin in favour of backup Kirk Cousins, Shanahan repeatedly pointed out that Griffin has been sacked 24 times in the last five games. He also noted that Griffin missed this years off-season practices while recovering from major knee surgery, a reason often cited for Griffins struggles a year after winning the NFLs offensive rookie of the year award. "Were talking about his health," Shanahan said. "I want to make sure hes healthy. I think thats the most important thing going into the off-season, that he has his first full off-season being healthy. And if he did play, and something happened to him, I think it would set our franchise back." Shanahan has previously insisted that Griffin would remain the starter if healthy because the quarterback needed as much regular season work as possible to develop an all-around game. Asked if Griffin is healthy now, Shanahan said: "I think hes 100 per cent. I think hes feeling very good." The tension was palpable throughout Shanahans news conference, which also included him debunking a report that he cleaned out his office in advance of Januarys playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks. "It would take me two minutes to clean out my office," Shanahan said. "Ive got two notebooks and Ive got an iPad. When I hear different things like that, I just shake my head." Such bizarre days have become standard fare for the Redskins under Snyder. The team is 104-133 in the regular season since he bought the team in 1999, and Shanahan is his seventh coach in 15 seasons. Shanahan is 24-37 in Washington. And, according to Shanahan, there are more bizarre days to come. "Fortunately I havent been in too many of these situations, and if you have, then youre not around very long," Shanahan said. "But I understand what goes on when you win the NFC East and all of sudden youve got three wins. It goes with the territory. I understand theres going to be a different story every day, and its not going to change over the next three weeks." Notes: RB Evan Royster will go on injured reserve with a high left ankle sprain. ... There was a rare moment of levity during Shanahans news conference when a Redskins intern stumbled to the floor while helping to pass out microphones. "OK, we got one on IR," Shanahan said with a chuckle. "Some guys will do anything to get on TV." Authentic Steve Young Jersey .No terms were released but a raise was expected. The 27-year-old right back was a bargain at US$48,825 in 2014 and $46,500 in 2013. Colin Kaepernick Jersey .com) - The Toronto Maple Leafs will try to continue their terrific start to the 2013-14 campaign when they welcome the streaking Minnesota Wild for Tuesdays clash at Air Canada Centre.There were some very good games this week past. Three came down to the fourth quarter while quarterbacks continued to shine in all four games; so important to the overall quality of the game. I dont know whether to feel exhilaration for the way the Edmonton Eskimos beat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers or remorse for the way the Bombers lost. I thought Winnipeg did a masterful job or running plays to support their two new offensive tackles Jarvis Jones and Dan Knapp. Early in the game they used tight ends, running backs, motion, and movement to make sure they werent isolated one on one in space. It was excellent play calling by the offensive staff of the Bombers. The difficulty for Winnipeg the rest of the season is at 2-10 making the playoffs is not realistic and if it were to happen, it would likely be a one and done run. So how do you improve a team with new personnel and try to maintain continuity? That is supposed to happen in training camp, not Week 14. The last six games will be a painful one for Bombers fans in the stands but an inevitable step. Am I saying sacrifice the 2013 season for 2014? Yes, to a point. Until mathematically eliminated, play on. But find talent and let it shine in game conditions. At the risk of sounding repetitive, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats are getting better and better. Montreal played well on defence and moved the ball against them, but the Tiger-Cats were 4-4 on field goal attempts, scored on a fake field goal, and continue to be productive with the Dan LeFevour experiment. It is so true there are a lot of ways to lose and a lot of ways to win, and both reasons why are often subtle. Every Tuesday morning I have an errand to run that takes me by the new Ticats Stadium. It looks good! With Kent Austin as head coach improving this team, another year with Henry Burris (you know he wants to come back), I would by a season ticket ASAP. Why dont I? My blood still runs Argonauts Blue. And speaking of the Doublee Blue, the Toronto Argonauts have now won three road games in a row. Ronnie Lott 49ers Jersey. At Montreal, at Saskatchewan, and now at Calgary. That is impressive. The East may come down to Hamilton and Toronto as both teams are pulling away from Montreal and Winnipeg. I was not sold on Zach Collaros until the win over Calgary. He is not Ricky Ray and he is not Darian Durrant; Collaros has his own style and way of getting things done. He is definitely in the Ottawa RedBlacks picture as an expansion pick as his skill set is only surpassed by his competitive attitude. You can build around that quality of “never say die” leadership. Watch out for Jerious Norwood as a running back as well. He had 135 all-purpose yards in Calgary and his acceleration combined with his last minute elusiveness is excellent. Three straight wins with no Chad Owens, right now the Argonauts are peaking as a team and need to relax and keep it going. In BC, I was impressed with another young QB in Thomas DeMarco. For a first game starter his statistics werent mind blowing – 18-33, 208 yards and no turnovers – but he was excellent responding in pressure plays. Also, DeMarco has big time velocity and accuracy when he lets the ball go. Just add his name to a list of exceptional young talent that will compete for a starting position somewhere in the near future. And for the Saskatchewan Roughriders all I can say is dont panic. Panic only brings more panic. You are 8-4 with six to go. You play BC twice more and Calgary once. As a team, you control your destiny and after 13 weeks that is a blessing realized, not a curse carried. I am not one of these guys who says you cant learn anything from losing (Milt Stegall). To come from behind and take the lead only to then lose it again was excellent experience for Darian Durrant and that offence. Its not over yet for the Roughriders; far from it. Good week of football and 24 more games to go!
