ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is putting a new spin on his comment that he'll use the rest of the season ``to see who obviously is going to be on your football team for years to come.''
A clearly agitated Shanahan said on Monday that he probably didn't give ``the perfect quote'' after the Redskins fell to 3-6 with Sunday's 21-13 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
Shanahan had proclaimed the game a ``must-win'' to stay in the playoff hunt. His postgame remarks implied that he was giving up on the postseason chase to turn the focus to player evaluation. Several players were perplexed by the coach's remarks.
Now Shanahan is saying every game for the rest of the season will be like a playoff game.
