Nice read. I am excited to see how our offense executes under KS.

Re: Kyle Shanahan Emerges From His Father's Shadow

Well, his name opened the door of opportunity for him. He took the opportunity and ran with it. Seems like he's a go getter and a real talented coach. Let's hope he can make lemonade out of our offensive skill position players this year.

Re: Kyle Shanahan Emerges From His Father's Shadow

Sounds like our offensive playcalling will be in very capable hands. He sure took the fast track up the ladder in Texas and it sounds like he earned every bit of it and did an outstanding job with whatever responsibility that was given to him. I'm glad he's here.

Re: Kyle Shanahan Emerges From His Father's Shadow

How long will we get to keep him? If this article is any indication he might get a head coaching offer before we know it. The fact that we all but guranteed the head coaching job to Williams before not giving it to him also doesn't seem to help. Then again Vinny was probably more at fault for that.

Re: Kyle Shanahan Emerges From His Father's Shadow

All I know is this guy made matt schaub really productive when he was healthy and his offenses were very fun to watch. Obviouslly we don't have Andre Johnson but I still think one of our recievers will srtongly emerge this season. I actually have alot of high expectations for Kelly in '10

hard to say, wouldn't be surprised if things go well and they basically give him the next HC clause

If the offense performs, he will definetly be the next Head Coach.

I hope thats what happens. In the meantime our best chance might be a combination of wanting to work under his father and owners believing Kyle to be to young to be a head coach.

Re: Kyle Shanahan Emerges From His Father's Shadow

GWilliams had the next HC Clause, and where did that get him?

This will be another test to the debate about playcalling -- seems like most people say it's overrated.

Let's be honest: Our offense sucks. And it has sucked for years, going back to the Joe Gibbs (part II) days. Most of the players that make up that sucky offense are still here.

Mike and Kyle have their work cut out for them.

I doubt we'll see the "swinging-gate" anytime soon. We'll probably see more fades to tall receivers too.

Re: Kyle Shanahan Emerges From His Father's Shadow

This entire coaching staff will demonstrate the wide disparity in coaching ability and philosophy in comparison to the last regime. It's going to be interesting to see the difference in the performance of the same players Zorn coached with mixed results.
