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.
