Kyle Shanahan has made it clear he has no love for the Washington Redskins. After today's win at FedEx Field, he took another jab at the franchise.

Well, to be more specific, he took a shot at the team's playing surface. It is bad, likely the worst in the NFL, year-in and year-out.

Today was no different. Granted, there were heavy rains throughout the game, but the field conditions in Landover were horrendous.

The 9-0 final score reflected the tough sledding. After the game, Shanahan said "that's how that field always is. It's tough to move" before adding that he enjoyed getting a chance to see his team celebrate on it.

In the days leading up to today's game, Shanahan was asked what his best memory was of his time in Washington. He cited getting to coach with his dad before saying the worst part was "everything else."

With today's win, the Niners moved to 6-0 on the season while the Redskins fell to 1-6.

Washington's traditions of fielding losing teams that play on shoddy grass continues.
