Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire
Hogs Haven compiles some quick hitters from today's Mike Shanahan press conference.
Mike Shanahan took the podium for his normal Monday press conference today to discuss the Redskins win over the Buccaneers. Here are some brief notes from the presser:
- Billy Cundiff is your kicker. The Skins will not tryout kickers this week. Unless this is a typical Shanny smokescreen where Graham Gano or Neil Rackers are brought in without "trying out".
- Brandon Meriweather has been ruled out for the Falcons game and will be evaluated on a week by week basis.
- Aldrick Robinson has a concussion and is now the NFL concussion program. He will not be back on the field until he can pass a series of tests.
- Shanny praised the receiving group, Josh Morgan in particular.
- He said there was "no comparison" in the officiating from the regular referees compared to the replacements.
- He defended Pierre Garcon's after the whistle penalty by saying he thought the play was still going on.
- Third Down conversions are an area of concern.
