Mike Shanahan: Indoor Practice Facility For Washington Redskins Is A 'Priority'

The Washington Redskins are one of the richest teams in the NFL, and yet, they don't have something as simple as a practice bubble. Joe Gibbs famously never wanted one, because he wanted the team to practice in the conditions they would play in, but Mike Shanahan is a different person.

Already, weather has been an issue four times this season, including today, when the Redskins moved to an indoor facility at the last minute instead of practicing in the snow. Shanahan Shanahan isn't too thrilled about this, and took some time to convey that getting an indoor facility "is a priority." Via Mike Jones of TBD:

Considering how much this team is worth, the idea of a bunch of players carpooling to go practice on a basketball court is kind of ridiculous. It's hard to argue with Joe Gibbs' logic, but times have changed. Nearly every team has an indoor facility now, and the Redskins should probably follow suit.
