To me, this is the turning point of the season.
After Mike Shanahan spoke those words this team has played like it wants to win. It's playing like it believes that it can win every game. It's won ever single game since those words were spoken. Mike Shanahan knows what he's doing. What he did was motivate a team of younger players, motivate a team that believes in him. Two decisive victories and a close win against the leader of the division.When you lose a game like that, now you're playing to see who, obviously, is going to be on your football team for years to come
These last three games are games that at 3-6 everyone expected to lose. These were games that our Washington Redskins would normally lose. Instead of throwing away the last three games, the team found itself. This team is playing inspired football right now and I believe that Mike Shanahan is a large part of that.
This statement by Mike Shanahan was the turning point in the season.
