DeAngelo Hall backs Mike Shanahan, Redskins coaches


The Washington Redskins season isn’t going the way they had hoped. Former Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb thinks head coach Mike Shanahan is setting quarterback Robert Griffin III up to be the scape goat. At least one Redskins player is supporting his coach.

“I absolutely would endorse these guys,” cornerback DeAngelo Hall said, via The Washington Post. “I think a big part of success is to have some stability. I think anybody who has had success in this league would tell you that.”

Hall is trying to ignite a spark in the team and the veteran is warning the younger players that there will be changes in the offseason.

“It’s five games left,” he said. “It has to be a mindset. You can take it one of two ways: ‘Five games left, let’s hurry up and get this over.’ Or, ‘Five games left to go out there and show people what you got.’ …

“I tell these guys all the time, ‘This group is gonna never be the same.’ No matter how many guys stay from this year to next year, it won’t be the same. And you’ve got to cherish the opportunity to play with the guys in this locker room because, like I said, it won’t ever be the same group of guys out here playing together.”
