Shanahan: Redskins' bye coming at right time
"This year is different than most because of the lockout, you were putting your team together during camp, working 20 hours a day to put together the roster, trying to negotiate [contracts], trying to put your system in. I think it has worked out pretty good for us that we have the bye week."

Shanahan focuses on fourth-quarter penalties, not INTs - Insider
"I try to tell our guys don’t pay attention to what anybody says. We’ve got to do it each and every week, we’ve got to find a way to win and find a way to be the best at what you do. At the end of the season, we’ll decide what type of team we are--offense, defense special teams. But we have a ways to go. I love our effort, I like the direction of our football team, and hopefully we can keep on doing what we’re doing."
