The Redskins game of passive-agressive message sending has taken another turn, which was probably predictable.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN (and not any of his colleagues), Redskins coach Mike Shanahan “will not resign from his job and would like to return to Washington next season as long as he can run team the way he wants.”
Well, of course he does. What else would he say when he’s got $7 million reasons hanging in the balance?
It’s the next message that needed to be sent as the relationship between Shanahan and owner Daniel Snyder deteriorates/evolves, and by sending it straight through his longtime confidante Schefter, Shanahan has made sure it comes through loud and clear.
