Nose tackle Barry Cofield and wide receiver Santana Moss became the latest Washington Redskins players to advocate for the return of Coach Mike Shanahan and his staff next season.
“There’s no talk about that in the locker room,” Cofield said Wednesday. “I don’t go out of my way to look for that type of stuff. Realistically we definitely want our staff back and hopefully that’s the case.”
Moss said Shanahan and his staff should be given another season to work with quarterback Robert Griffin III.
“Grass ain’t always greener,” Moss said. “I’ve always lived by that. I learned it from my father. So at the end of the day, this is RG’s second year. And it wasn’t the second year that none of us hoped for. He had to deal with an offseason of just rehabbing and getting himself back. So you’ve almost got to automatically feel that you have to give him another chance to really show that this offense could be ran the way it should be ran under him and under these coaches. And that’s just how I look at things. Other than that, it’s not in my control. I can’t control things that happen. So I do what I can control and that’s go out there and try to be the best I can be for this team.”
