At the podium: Mike Shanahan [updated with video]

The Redskins coach met with members of the news media at 3 p.m. today in one of the most anticipated news conferences in a long time. The Redskins have considered firing the coach, for cause, a day after news of a fracture in the relationship with owner Daniel Snyder came out, and a day after the team fell to 3-10, but no announcement has been made yet.

We’ll cover the news conference in forthcoming blog posts, but here’s a place for you to comment on it as it happens. Meantime, we’ll also post our reporters tweets below, and add as the news conference goes, so refresh often.
