Redskins OC Kyle Shanahan had some high praise for WR Santana Moss.
“Santana’s entire offseason. . . to me he came in possessed. He was ready to go,” Shanahan said. “You saw it physically, and then to see him in the meeting rooms, he’s been great. He’s been so attentive and it’s shown over to the field. The guy’s not thinking out there, he’s confident in his speed. He feels confident in his knowledge of the offense and there’s no hesitation. He’s been very exciting.”
Redskins coaches challenged Moss to play at a lighter weight this season so he could regain his explosiveness and effectiveness. He has lost 15 pounds.
“You know, a lot of guys can lose weight by starving themselves, staying in the steam and dehydrating themselves and just getting on a scale,” Shanahan said. “Santana did it the right way. I feel he’s more powerful. He’s more explosive.”
