Sorry if this was already posted, but Kyle Shanahan's quoate makes me feel great about our team direction. When was the last time you heard something like this? It was always about the scheme before.

Tight end Fred Davis emerged as a target for the Redskins in the 2009 after Chris Cooley suffered a season-ending ankle injury in October. But now, with Cooley healthy, there are questions about how the Redskins will manage the position.

"The only position where one guy is out there is quarterback," offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said following the team's first minicamp. "Whatever it is, our best player is going to be out on the field. If we feel two tight ends are better than three receivers, we'll put two tight ends out there and go with two receivers. It's whatever your personnel is, and you have to adjust that way as a coach."

yes, especially in light of our TE talent vs our WR talent.

Sounds like a pretty standard response from a coach.

I think we'll see a lot of 2 TE looks, with guys as talented as Cooley and Davis you just have to get them on the field.

I'd really like to see one of them standing up in the slot occasionally, use them kinda like Indy uses Dallas Clark

Exception Zorn!!!. He designed player personnel groupings via connect the dot and pretend I am bill Walsh, Campbell is Miontana, and Thomas is Jerry Rice method. His scheme was so pristine in his mind he could use anyone anywhere at anytime and if they follow his directions it will be sucessful. Kyle, that is a standard response but it is good coaching using personnel. I am encouraged. Common sense.

Shame his father didn't think like that before insisting on a switch to the 3-4.

Or rotate them often so there is fresh legs on the field.

They aren't completely switching Haslett has said that multiple times, he will adjust to the personnel too! They will use multiple 4 man fronts.

Re: Awesome Quote!!

Just heard Cooley on a podcast addressing the 2 TE issue. He says they will run plays to get guys open more by adjusting to their talent. The previous coaching staff depended on the scheme to get wins. In other words, just run the play and it will be successful no matter the personell. I would expect to see the best players on the field on the plays designed to get the most out of them.

I wish we could get over this issue. There has been no lying about M.Shanahan liking the 3-4. It was even reported that he went to the Steeler's and Patriots camp last yr to see how they ran it.

I honestly don't see how this will be a huge concern. Meaning we have players with talent. Teams pick players out of college all the time not knowing if they will work out or not. But for some reason we are up in arms about players who we already know have talent to play not being able to play in our 3-4? I don't have a problem with the 3-4 and am happy they are finally changing to it. The scheme is harder to disect and figure out where the rush is coming from vs. the 4-3 which is a more stringent defense and teams can deteremine where the rush is coming from.

My only concern is Haslett. Will he be good enough to put together a decent 3-4 defensive scheme?

Re: Awesome Quote!!

Ok, so Mike Shannahan said that they were going to pencil Trent Williams in at LT but OC Kyle Shannahan has stated that a 2 time Pro Bowler like Cooley has to earn his playing time.

What's wrong with that picture or have I taken the quote out of context?

All I read is there's going to be competition, he didn't say "Cooley needs to earn time".

Penciling someone in isn't exactly a ringing endorsement either. TW is going to have to earn his time too.

I really don't understand why this isn't more clear for some people. I will complain about transitioning to a 3-4 when I see us lining up in it the whole game. I expect we will see a lot more shifts, and aggressive packages then what we have seen recently. Green Bay made a successful shift in one season, even though they were saying the same thing last off-season. I don't know that I necessarily trust Haslett to pull it off, but I am fairly confident we have the players to run a succesful (top 10) defense.
