On Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013, Redskins HC Mike Shanahan addressed the media following afternoon practice at Redskins Park in Ashburn, VA. 

.

On the injury report:
“The only person that was limited today was [safety Jose] Gumbs. Everybody else was full practice.”
 
On if wide receiver Pierre Garçon sustained his calf injury during the game against Denver:
“Yeah, that’s why he didn’t practice [full] yesterday, but he was full speed today.”
 
On wide receiver Santana Moss’ production this season:
“He’s the same as he was a year ago. It all depends on how much we use what we call the Gator personnel – three wides, a tight end and a back. The more we use that, the more he’s in the game. It all depends on what our game plan that week.”
 
On if Moss still has the same playmaking ability as in the past:
“Well, I know we haven’t had the numbers the last few weeks, but I really believe he does.”
 
On how much he thinks the narrow goalposts recently installed at Redskins Park will help Kai Forbath:
“I’m not really sure. It’s something that he wants or he wanted. We brought it in for a reason. When I was in Denver, Jason Elam wanted that at that time when it had just come out. Whatever they feel will help them, we’re willing to get.”
 
On his response to Albert Haynesworth’s recent comments:
“Let’s put it this way. I think I’ve been a head coach and an assistant coach for about 40 years, and when you look back on those days and you take a look at the people that you get along with or people that – for one reason or another – that you may not get along with, Albert was one of the few guys that… Let me start this over again because I want to be pretty specific on this since you asked me that question… The only people I really haven’t gotten along with since I’ve been a coach – as head coach, an assistant coach – is someone that’s lazy and number two, when somebody is lazy and they may lack character, or they’re lazy and they lack passion for the game, those are the only people I haven’t gotten along with as a head coach or as an assistant coach. And so that’s what you’re looking for. When I take a look through my years at people that have been lazy or have lacked passion for their job, they don’t go into the next year. When they do, they don’t last the next year. So the people that I look at that come back and complain or do some of those things that you do when you don’t get along with somebody as a head coach or an assistant coach, it usually falls into one of those couple areas: lazy, lack of passion, and a lot of times, a lack of character. And he fits all three… You usually take the high road as much as you can. I usually do, but I thought that he’s been talking quite a bit over the last couple years, so I thought at least I’d be honest with you guys and kind of tell you how I feel.”
