I caught up with top cornerback DeAngelo Hall the other day after he finished working out and watching film with his position group at Redskins Park, and it's fair to say he has totally bought into Coach Mike Shanahan's program.
Hall was impressed with Shanahan's opening address to the team as the voluntary offseason conditioning program began at Redskins Park. And Hall expressed confidence Shanahan is the right person to restore the Redskins to prominence.
"Coach Shanahan has a plan for how he wants us to play and represent this organization," Hall said in a phone interview. "Get your work in, get ready and then just go out and play football. It's all about getting the Redskins back on track."
Hall, who took in the NASCAR race over the weekend, was among many veterans frustrated last season because of the team's poor play and off-the-field chaos, and Shanahan has quickly shown the Redskins what it's like "to have a coach who has that respect because of what he's accomplished in this league," Hall said. "Guys talk about presence. Coach Shanahan has that presence because of the Super Bowls and everything else he's done, and I think guys were waiting to have a coach like that here in Washington."
