Former Redskins cornerback Fred Smoot made an appearance with Holden and Danny on 106.7 The Fan in Washington D.C. and once again ripped into head coach Mike Shanahan.
Like last time, Smoot went on to say how “terrible” Shanahan is and that the Skins need a head coach that “understands RGIII talent.”
Smoot did give Shanahan credit for bringing in good players. But said he can’t coach.
“I didn’t say he shopped for bad groceries. He shopped for good players,” Smoot said, before launching into the most Smoot-like analogy of all Smoots.
“Like we said, he just cannot cook. You know, sometimes grandma gets too old. She know what to go in the grocery store and get, but she just cannot whip it up like she used to.”
“Great coaches get the most out of players, even the players that are not that good, they get the most out of these players. With Shanahan right now, I think right now the game has just passed him. Like he’s not a bad coach, he’s a Super Bowl winning coach, but I just think right now, today’s athletes, and everything that goes on with today’s football, has just simply passed him.”
You can certainly always count on a very entertaining interview with Smoot.
