Mike Shanahan brings his well-refined offensive system to the Washington Redskins
Take the name off the back of the jersey, because it doesn't matter, and it still might be easy - even for an amateur - to pick out a play from Mike Shanahan's offense during his 14 years with the Denver Broncos . A running back - be it Terrell Davis or Mike Anderson or Clinton Portis or Tatum Bell or Olandis Gary or Reuben Droughns, all of whom had 1,000-yard seasons in Shanahan's system - takes a handoff and heads wide toward the sideline. An offensive line, moving as one, strides with him, engaging not the men in front of them, but the men occupying the areas to which they're headed. The flow of the play goes, say, to the right, and with one foot planted firmly and swiftly in the ground, the back turns it back to the left.
