Shanahan sticking to plan, even if unpopular

Washington Redskins v St. Louis Rams Getty Images

Considering the criticism he took for his handling of star quarterback Robert Griffin III last year, there’s no surprise Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is digging in his heels on this one.

After Griffin said he was ready to do more than 7-on-7 drills and wanted to speed up his comeback from knee surgery, Shanahan said he was sticking to the plan as originally formulated.

“We do have a plan for him. He may not always like that plan, but that’s my job, sometimes not to be liked,” Shanahan said, via Mike Jones of the Washington Post. “My job is to do the best thing for him. And that’s what I’ll do. . . .

“You always want your guys to be ready to go, and you want them to be a little bit antsy. But your job is to get them ready. I don’t want to put him in too quick for the obvious reasons, but I like what I’ve seen. Like we talked about last week, he’s making a lot of progress and getting a lot of quality work done, and if he continues to do this, he’ll get a little more freedom, a little more reps, and hopefully be ready for the first game.”

Of course, not everyone seemed to like Shanahan’s plan last year during the playoffs, and it’s easy to draw a straight line from Shanahan’s willingness to let Griffin push it when he wasn’t well to the knee injury that necessitated such an aggressive rehab.

So if that means his quarterback grumbling about the slow pace, so be it.

“We have a plan next week, and we’ll give him a little more next week and we’ll see how he does,” Shanahan said. “We’re going to do this day-by-day and gave him a little bit more freedom with each week that goes by, and hopefully, if there is no setback, he’ll be ready for the first game.”

They’ve gradually bumped him from seven snaps a practice to 17, and as close as they are to the goal of getting Griffin back for the regular season, it’s hard to imagine Shanahan changing his mind now.

    When they finally come up with a legit HGH test, you’ll never see these quick rehabs again. Theres no way in hell it didn’t play a part in him coming back this fast

    Shanny, you already did the damage. Long odds are Griffin will not regain the flash mobility he had as a rookie anytime soon – if ever.

    Let’s get one thing clear, everyone blames Shanahan for what happened last year. Doesn’t the player have to take the biggest portion of the blame? As I remember when Griffin while running out of bounds on a pass play tweeked his knee somewhat and said to Trent Williams “that scared me, but don’t say anything to anybody”

    I think it’s really unfair to blame Shanahan when RGIII failed to be truthful to him, and lets not write and talk as if RGIII is the first ever QB or player to continue to play while being hurt…I’m sure NFL films can show us plenty…the pre-season is meaningless and is more for looking at young players as you already know what you have in your veterans, now while RGIII is pushing to do more he needs to back it up a little it’s not like he’s in jeapardy of losing the starting spot and he has plenty of time before the Sept. 9th opener to be ready.

    And I say this as a Redskins fan!

  6. cowboyhater says: Aug 6, 2013 9:08 AM

    Shanahan has the right approach with this kid. He’s is just an overly aggressive competitor, and needs to reeled in. This is the time when coach learned from his mistake about trusting an athlete about their health, and now is taking the correct conservative progression without risking further injury. I will consistently worry about RG3, but love potential he brings to the team.

  7. bigbluenationdb says: Aug 6, 2013 9:10 AM

    Who cares! RGIII will not play a full season. He is Mike Vick 2.0 except he has a little more smarts to him.

    Unless he completely changes his style of play he will never make it through a season completely healthy.

    Do you want your QB to make the ESPN highlights on weekly basis and get drilled by defenders ofter or do you want a QB that is healthy in December/January that can win in the playoffs not limp off the field in the second half of a playoff game?

  8. abninf says: Aug 6, 2013 9:10 AM

    “My job is to do the best thing for him…………”

    ====================================

    So you keep him in a game when he can hardly walk and even the announcers were like “what the hell”.

    As long as he is healthy enough to face your gmen twice in a year, and make JPP look foolish on the field is what will make my year. We actually have a competent back up that I feel confident in, but you need to start worrying about your aging QB, and wonder when he will eventually start breaking down, but don’t worry because no matter what your owner tried to do the DC organization, it didn’t work and plus we will have nice cap number going into to next year. Just wanted to chime in at you since you feel the need to try to be an expert on RG3′s health, and style of play.

  16. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Aug 6, 2013 9:22 AM

    After looking bad last year for throwing RG out there on a bad knee, Shanahan wants to give the impression that he is looking after RG’s best interest.

    Easy to take it slow in August. But there should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Shanahan will have RG out there under center for the first game.

  17. bach2112 says: Aug 6, 2013 9:29 AM

    Watching him the playoff was sad. Clearly a sitting duck yet coach dont yank him. Watched him play at Baylor every time he got didnt expect him to get up.

  18. baddegg says: Aug 6, 2013 9:39 AM

    This is why the term “hater” is accurate. Last year EVERYONE criticized Shanahan for leaving RGIII in the Seattle game too long and not protecting his health. Basically all this article says is that Shanahan learned from this mistake and is now making Griffin take it slow.

    And yet, so many posters have a negative reaction to this story:

    1. Shanahan is disingenuous.

    2. You can see the future and know that RGIII won’t be healthy all season.

    3. You can magically see into RGIII’s knee and know that he’s not mobile anymore.

    4. The only way for a team to win is for a QB to be a drop back QB.

    Enough already! Shanahan is doing right now what EVERYONE said he SHOULD do and all you can do is sit on the sidelines and snipe. What’s infuriating is how arrogant everyone sounds. NEWSFLASH: you are not doctors, you are not pro athletes, you are not coaches! Get over yourselves!

    Sorry hendawg21

    But it seems you’ve never played in a major team sport. Players are always going to say they can go. Especially football players. That mentality is placed in them by coaches from peewee football on up. The majority of the blame lies squarely on Shanahan’s shoulders. Forget about was he hurt or not. RG3′s lack of mobility was so bad that game that it was hurting the team. Almost similar to a starting pitcher who claims he can pitch the 8th and 9th despite giving up back to back home runs a good coach has to be able to say son you’ve done enough. Now the pitcher will protest but ultimately baseball or football it’s the responsibility of the coach to use his judgement and do what’s best for the team and player who the owner has signed for multi millions over years. Don’t break the owner’s toys.

  20. eviladam420 says: Aug 6, 2013 9:58 AM

    Good call Shanahan. Easy does it should always be the attitude when dealing with a reconstructed knee. I’m as hardcore of an Eagles fan as there is, but I wish the best for RG3. He’s a class act.

    If I were the coach, I would start the year with Cousins. If it is a disaster, then put RG3 in there. If Cousins can hold his own, leave him there for awhile. He will gain invaluable experience. Then when RG3 is fully FULLY healthy, make the switch. The odds are that any read option quarterback is going to get injured at some point. Hopefully that does not happen, but if it does then Shanahan will not need to hesitate to put Cousins back in. The situation mimics the 49ers of last year…obviously Cousins has far less experience than Alex Smith, but Kaepernick was like adding a turbo boost when he came in. The Redskins could utilize RG3 the same way. 16 games plus playoffs could be almost 2 college seasons. How many read option quarterbacks can go that long without an injury?

  30. bigbenh8tr says: Aug 6, 2013 10:44 AM

    @badegg….please take your childish hater talk to a hiphop message board or somewhere relevant, it is not fit for professional sports.

    And then grow up a little and don’t be so sensitive about criticism of your team, your bird legged qb, or your coach who only made a name for himself BC of john elway. Other than that, he went thru about 7 running backs in Denver in 4 years so ensure they all had short careers.

    Coach is right this time. He has to pump Rg’s brakes for him. We need him long term not just this year. to me best case is Cousins does good in Pre Season and they let him hold the keys to the car until week 1,2,3 whenever Rg is 100% ready. Then not only will we be set up with a Ready #2 in Cousins you may be able to get some draft picks out of him next year if RG can stay healthy. They keep saying they have a plan i am hoping that is there plan ,some form of it anyway. HTTR

    Are you a starting QB in the NFL? There is quite a difference between Joe Public coming back early from an injury, and a multi-million dollar pro athlete who plays in the most violent game, and at the most dangerous position. If you come back early, you can still take it easy. He cant. Comparing your situation to his makes you look a bit foolish.

    RG3 is talented, smart, and committed. I think he is insubordinate however. I think he needs to be conscious of his celebrity and not undermine his coaches or his teammates with his desire to play. Kirk Cousins healthy would have been better than him in that last game. And I fear Coach Shannahan let himself be bullied into letting Robert play. RG3 also needs to stop with his comments about “a man does this and that..” He is a 2nd year player. His coaches and his father should be the one talking about what a man does, not him. He should be learning manhood not preaching it.

    2. Easy to take it slow in August. But there should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Shanahan will have RG out there under center for the first game.
    __________________
    1. Griffin was the one who asked to be “thrown out there”. The Third insisted that he could play, and Shanahan allowed him to keep playing, although that was clearly a mistake. Both Griffin and Shanahan messed up big in the playoff game: no one on earth would argue with that, and both the coach and the quarterback have owned up to their mistakes. However, is it so hard to believe that Shanahan is looking out for Griffin’s best interests?

    2. Yes it is “easy to take it slow in August”, so that’s what they are doing. And “there should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Griffin will under center for week 1″, as that has been the plan for over a month now. Griffin will continue rehabbing, won’t play in the preseason, but will start the regular season.

    ________
    Let’s start with how Rush Limbaugh never said that, or anything of the kind. In fact, Limbaugh has never had anything but praise for Griffin. Then let’s finish with how Griffin put up better numbers than Eli and Brees last year, when he shared the Pro Bowl berth with Rodgers and Ryan.

    How about my 42 years as a physical therapist? Oh wait, it’s the internet and I can claim to be whatever I want. I’m 25, and only an undergrad in UVA’s kinesiology program, but I have five years of experience as a personal trainer and four more years as a high school quarterback and DB.

    And if you were actually a PT, you would know that sports medicine is an exponentially growing field; James Andrews is literally the greatest knee surgeon in history; and that a PCL tear is different than an ACL tear. And that while a PCL tear is certainly a big deal, it’s not as important for quarterbacks as it is for other positions on the field.

    I think they have. Every Redskins fan is upset about what happened in the playoff game, but that hasn’t changed anybody’s mind about the promise Griffin has shown, or the way Shanahan has turned the team around in three years. Now Shanahan is exercising the authority he should have shown last January, and Griffin is showing the fiery, competitive attitude every team should expect from its quarterback.

    And if you actually knew anything, you’d know that he tore his ACL and MCL, not his PCL. Whether or not you believe that I’m a PT is completely irrelevant. I know the advancements that sports medicine has taken in the past decade, but like I said earlier, the best surgeon in the world cant speed the healing process. Only one thing can, and its called HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE. I see the results of it firsthand on a weekly basis.

    It shouldn’t upset anyone that he used it. I guess Redskins fans have become thin skinned and skittish since they finally got to see their team go above .500 for the first time in a decade.

    Shanny should just find the nearest chain link fence and handcuff RG3 to it for his own good every practice for the next 3 weeks. RG3′s knees will be grateful even if his mouth isn’t.

    As someone who never liked that China Doll named Robert Griffin, I hope he is benched for the year and then traded for the draft picks that we lost. The China Doll has demonstrated he can’t be trusted and his pathetic two minute capabilities show he is worthless as a long-term solution. Yeah, he can run. Big whoop. We need a quarterback, not some skinny, lying prima donna who thinks he is a quarterback.

    The key additions to the Redskins last year were Kirk Cousins and Alfred Morris. We were sold a lemon when we wasted all those picks on a two-three year wonder who can’t stay healthy.

    First, Griffin strained his MCL in the game against the Ravens, but there was no sign of serious damage. In the playoff game, he tore his LCL, and may have strained his ACL as well, but it wasn’t clear. Either way, Andrews did a full LCL reconstruction and touched up the previous operation he had done on Griffin’s ACL in college.

    And I would hope “you see the results of HGH on a weekly basis”, I cut my hand on the grill last week and it’s totally healed. If your patients didn’t recover from week to week you’d probably be out of a job.

    And I have to assume you’re not saying you see the results of artificial HGH supplements or doping on a weekly basis– because that would mean you work exclusively with hormonally-deficient elderly and/or meatheaded gym rats with connections to sketchy medical professionals.
