Despite Lockout, Mike Shanahan Putting In Serious Work For The Redskins

The NFL has locked out it's players, and the Player Association has been dissolved. As of right now, there is no indication that there will be an NFL season this year. But that hasn't stopped Mike Shanahan and the Redskins coaching staff from putting in some serious work, according to Mike Jones at The Washington Post.

"We as coaches are still going from 7 in the morning to 7 at night, looking at the draft, looking at film from the season, still looking at all your cut-ups," Shanahan said during the coaches’ breakfast. "So that won’t change until the middle of May, when, possibly, we won’t have our OTAs. So from my standpoint, nothing has changed. Until the middle of May, nothing has changed."

Well, I would think some things must have changed. There is definitely stuff for them to do, but I thought they might have been able to scale it back a little bit. Still working 12 hour days when the organization you are coaching might not field a team this year? Sounds kind of like a workaholic to me. Having said that, that's the exact kind of man I would want running my NFL team.
