Need to Know: There is a little bit longer to go in Operation Patience. Plus players on eggshells at Redskins Park.
It’s part Shanahan showing who’s boss and forcing Griffin to extend his patience a little farther and part taking some time to make sure he has one last chance to talk to his quarterback about the problems he will face if he doesn’t better protect himself when danger is near. Remember in training camp when it took an extra day for Shanahan to OK Griffin to do 11 on 11 drills? Didn’t think so. There are no serious game preparations going on until Wednesday anyway so a few more days to nail down the starting quarterback won’t matter.
