[QUOTE] [Mike Shanahan at FedEx after the draft]...
"I'm proud to be your head football coach," Shanahan continued, "and I'll tell you what: to sit back and have the opportunity with all the tradition, all the Super Bowls, and the things that've been accomplished here, I feel very, very excited to come in here, put a new coaching staff together, obviously go through a minicamp, [B]and we've got one goal and we've got it together, and that's to win a Super Bowl. And we will get it done.
[/B]
"To make a statement like that, you have to have a lot of things going for you. We've got a great owner that gives me every chance to do the things that a head coach needs to do to be successful, and that's where it starts. And one of the reasons why I'm your head coach is I believe that I have a person that'll give me every opportunity to do the things that we need to do to be successful.

[B]"So keep your fingers crossed. It's a long process, a lot of hard work, but again: thank you for being here. I'm excited to play the first game here against that Dallas Cowboys --"

The crowd interrupted at this point for extended cheering, and chants of "We Want Dallas!" Shanahan chuckled before continuing.

"You know, we got a little work to do before we play Dallas, but I guarantee you one thing: I'm looking forward to it just like you are[/B]. Again, thanks for being here, thanks for supporting us, [B]and hail to the Redskins![/B]"

This guy gets it. He understands how to talk to the crowd, how to field a competitive team, and what the team's goals are. Reading the whole blog from Matt Terl, all I could say was... "Hell Yeah!"

Yeah!! CRR that's good stuff, the video of his speech to the crowd is also available on the teams website. I'm impressed with the possibilities of what he'll be able to accomplish here before he's done. This is just the beginning, it's going to be interesting to see just how soon he'll be able to make all the different pieces come together as a team in hopes of reaching that ultimate goal.......Gotta have faith!!

Heard all this before. Of course, it's certainly better than Zorn's comments, but still, I'm tired of listening, it's time to show me.

i thought they were converting jarmon to an OLB? shanny says he gives us depth at DE, so which is it?

I took it that Shanny misspoke on that one...but we will see.

Maybe we'll ask him to bulk up? But yeah I see him as more of a 3-4 OLB (Jarmon). Although I think Carriker and AH will make a good DE tandem. I just hope Kemo gets healthy or one of the other NT we brought in work out.

We can give him a pass on that one, not quite as bad as Zorn not knowing the team colors.

Seems to have a better grasp of Redskins tradition than his predecessor, who infamously expressed pleasure to be continuing the legacy of the "maroon and black." Still, it's not that hard to fire up a Skins crowd: talk about the 1980's, say the future is going to be like the 1980's, watch rapture ensue.
