The Redskins defense better be ready when Kyle Shanahan and his 49ers roll into FedEx Field on Sunday, Santana Moss warns.
Shanahan hasn't faced the Redskins since Week 6 of 2017, his first season in San Francisco, when Jay Gruden's Redskins edged the 49ers 26-24. Now in his third season, Shanahan's 2019 team has come a long way since that 6-10 squad. They just put a hurting on the Rams, winning 20-7 on Sunday, to improve to 5-0 on the season.
It would be foolish to overlook Shanahan's bitter Redskins departure – when he was fired as offensive coordinator in Dec. 2013 along with his father, Mike – as an additional motivating factor.
"His offense – I spoke to you about this years ago – that was one of my favorite offenses to be a part of," Moss said. "The third and fourth receiver can have one of the better seasons of any offense than a first and second guy is in, with this Kyle Shanahan offense"
"They're coming in here to make sure they make a lot of noise," he said. "And just knowing how he exited with his dad in that style, I'm sure they're not gonna hold back. I hope these guy know, on the defensive side, what's ahead of us and be ready for it, because Kyle Shanahan's coming and he's not holding nothing back."
