"I don’t think he’ll do anything that’s going to harm the football team," said the Redskins’ defensive coordinator. "He said something out of emotion, the way he felt, and just knowing Brandon, the way he practiced yesterday, he’ll stay within the rules and try to do what’s best." "He’s not going to hurt our football team," Haslett reiterated.

He added: "It definitely helps with your accuracy. I know that when I kicking on the bigger ones, I’m not as critical of myself if it’s toward the right upright but it goes in. Whereas if I kick that same ball on the small ones, it will look like it’s a miss. So it really helps me stay down the middle more."

Kyle Shanahan says he ‘didn’t do a good enough job’ on fourth-quarter play-calling in Denver
"You don’t have the run calls in the fourth quarter, which I know is what you guys are all getting at," Shanahan said. "And I don’t like it either…. I know what we want and the philosophy. We want to be balanced. And we weren’t balanced there in the fourth quarter. I can attribute it to a bunch of things. The main thing is, it’s not something you want to do as a play-caller. But as I always say, it’s tough to get runs called when you don’t stay on the field. We had four series there [in the fourth quarter] before we were down 17 points with 6 1/2 minutes to go. And in those four series, our longest drive was three plays, with another one being two plays."
