Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan insists that he's not giving up on his team's 2012 season, and that a postgame quote that indicated as much in the wake of Sunday's loss to the Carolina Panthers is being misinterpreted. "To insinuate that I was giving up on the season is completely ridiculous," Shanahan told ESPN.com in a phone interview Monday afternoon. "We've got five NFC East games still on the schedule. Anytime you have division games, you have a great chance."
