There is a lot of turmoil in the Washington Redskins organization following a disappointing season. There is seemingly a rift between head coach Mike Shanahan and owner Daniel Snyder as well as quarterback Robert Griffin III.
Former Redskins cornerback and Hall of Famer Darrell Green told SiriusXM NFL Radio’s Dan Koppen and Zig Fracassi that Shanahan was the problem.
“These guys are coming in here with their kids, hiring them, everybody’s making millions and having fun, but nobody’s really winning,” Green said, via theWashington Post. “And so, it is frustrating for us. We’ve been losing 20 years here, and we were a team used to winning. And it’s not the owner, because the owner’s not playing and the owner’s not coaching. It’s very frustrating. And I put the onus right where it belongs. [Shanahan] said last week, ‘I take the blame, I didn’t have them ready to play.’ Well you know what, you’re supposed to have them ready to play, and that goes for anybody.”
Green also predicted a change.
“I’m very optimistic about the potential for this team to be changed,” he said. “People can only go down so far, particularly when you have a guy who was a self-made millionaire, billionaire in Dan Snyder. This guy is not about losing. He’s about winning, and it’s a matter of time. He’s going to get the formula in place with the right people, and this thing is going to come around.”
