This is what I like also. M.Shanahan was able to build good OL's that opened holes for the RB's to gain all those yrds. Plus we have K.Shanahan who has built one of the top passing yrdage teams in the league.

Championship.

Re: Shanahan The New Head Coach Of the Redskins

Redskins players praise hiring of Shanahan
(Updated 10:47 p.m.)

Clinton Portis called the hiring of Mike Shanahan "a great idea." London Fletcher said that Shanahan "instantly becomes the face of the franchise." Reporters Barry Svrluga, Rick Maese, Jason Reid and Dan Steinberg are rounding up reaction from the Washington Redskins. We'll be adding to this file as the night wears on.

"I think it's a great idea," running back Clinton Portis said Tuesday evening. Portis played under Shanahan in 2002 and '03 with the Broncos. "I really think it's the best direction you can head in. You're talking about a proven coach, a coach who's going to come in and get things done, a coach that's got something to prove. He's a hell of a coach. I think the players are going to love him, and I think he's going to bring in the right kind of guys."

Linebacker London Fletcher, who attended the Capitals' game at Verizon Center: "I think it's great. Being able to add a two-time Super Bowl-winning head coach, it's phenomenal. He commands respect from the players right away. ... He instantly becomes the face of the franchise."

"I think we needed a guy in here who people are going to respect off of his name alone and Mike Shanahan is that guy," said cornerback DeAngelo Hall. "You already knew he was going to come in here with a great scheme, a great mind because he's a great coach. You know he's a great leader. But to have that name, Mike Shanahan, associated with the Redskins is big for us, it's big for the fans, and it's just great news."

"I'm not really surprised. Everyone knew it was coming," said right end Chris Cooley. "I think my first reaction is that I still feel for Jim Zorn. The guy worked hard, wanted to win but it just didn't come together. ... Moving forward, I'm excited to be a part of Mike Shanahan's and Bruce Allen's team. I think with that combination, it's a new vision, a new direction, which is good at this point."

As for Shanahan's offensive approach, Cooley said: "He's done great in the past. They run the ball extremely well. I remember looking at film and there was lots of play-action, lot of formations. It was an intelligent offense. He has the opportunity, with Fred [Davis]and I, to do a ton of different stuff."

"It's definitely a start," defensive end Andre Carter said. "You're talking about a man who's been to two Super Bowls, so he knows what it takes to build chemistry in an organization and have everyone start moving in the right direction. So I think this is a great hire. It's an honor to be working with Mike Shanahan."

Report: Kyle Shanahan to join his dad
Kyle Shanahan, the Houston Texans' offensive coordinator whose season ended Sunday, will join his father, who reached agreement with the Redskins Tuesday night, in Washington, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

The move of Kyle Shanahan to Washington, like that of his father, Mike, has been considered to be a done deal for weeks. In fact, Schefter tweeted: Another poor secret now public: Kyle Shanahan, the former Texans offensive coordinator, is the Redskins new offensive coordinator.

Leaving the Texans is not expected to be a problem for Shanahan; Houston head Coach Gary Kubiak worked for Mike Shanahan in Denver for years.

"It's going to be very hard to leave because of everything we've accomplished," Shanahan said told the Houston Chronicle recently. "I work with a lot of good people, but I've always wanted to work with my dad. If he comes back, I think the timing will be right.

"When he got fired by Denver last year, I told him when he came back I wanted to work with him, no matter where."

Kyle Shanahan, 30, joined the Texans in 2006 after two years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Re: Shanahan The New Head Coach Of the Redskins

I didn't expect his son to get the OC job I was hoping the potential rumor of clausen being joined by Charlie Weiss on the skins which would be good. Either way we not have a guy who has the respect to not back down from snyder.

Can you imagine seeing that peeking in the door during the night to check on curfew?

Re: Shanahan The New Head Coach Of the Redskins

Why the hell is Snyder always having these guys spend the night at his house. I'm sick of hearing these stories about these coaches going to his house after a night of dinner. Sounds like a honeymoon night after these guys 'consummate' their relationship by signing the dotted line of their contract.

Just grosses me out. Shanny is up $7M, I think he can afford the penthouse suite at the Four Seasons in downtown DC.


I'm not comforted by the fact Shanny is literally getting into Snyder's bed tonight after being wined & dined & $6.9'ed.

Maybe Danny has a nice stash of "The Chronic" or some cheese?

I'm sure that it's somewhat typical; if not, who cares? People stay at the White House and other places instead of hotels too.

Maybe they wanna have a few drinks and talk about where to get started.

Bwhaaaaa. Bada Bing.

No I think it's more that they are good friends. More to the point that they probably plan to get up early tomorrow and ride together into Redskins Park for an official announcement in the morning vs. the driver having to drive all over town to pick everyone up and get them there on time.

lol sounds good

another thing about shanahan staying at a hotel... too much exposure to the press, public, etc beforehand

staying with snyder ensures that he won't be pestered repeatedly and will have a direct route to Redskins Park in the morning

Did you guys catch the $6.9'ed? : ) DS loves doing that...just 69ing people.


Too buddy-buddy for me. I want our coach to have a Marty like approach if actual change is to take place.

My very insightful Peruvian manager use to tell me about our overbearing boss, "Never feed the fox an egg, because he will come back to you looking for more eggs later"

...Having lived in the US all my life I think the literal point was more applicable to rural Peru but I'm pretty sure it means don't become personal friends with your boss as he will expect friendly favors from your professional relationship.

Anyway, I believe that is good advice to heed when in a position of authority and when dealing with someone like Snyder. Shanny has to thwart that precedence of owner friendship if he's to bring about real change...Bruce Allen too.

Re: Shanahan The New Head Coach Of the Redskins

I like it! I feel this truly might be the beginning of a new era, cant wait to see how all the pieces fall in to place over the coming weeks and months. Unlike some other posters here, I know at the very least we will be a much improved team very quickly, hell we are already better cause vinny and zorn are gone, so pipe down a bit bigheadaristocrat and have just a little hope for the future.
