Scenes (And Quotes) From A Press Conference

Posted by Matt Terl on January 6, 2010 – 6:23 pm

Obviously, it was an interesting day today. The Mike Shanahan introductory press conference was a polished, straightforward affair. It was two professional guys — Shanahan and general manager Bruce Allen — doing an exceedingly professional job.

There were no obvious missteps (despite countless “maroon and black” jokes) and a number of very well-received gestures: the Super Bowl trophies were not on display, for example, and owner Daniel M. Snyder sat in the front row of the audience rather than at a table next to the podium. Read more »

Mark Schlereth On The Shanahan Hire

Posted by Matt Terl on January 6, 2010 – 4:55 pm

When current ESPN analyst Mark Schlereth wasn’t posing for slightly embarrassing Sports Illustrated photos with Alaskan icons, he was an offensive lineman, a member of the late-period Hogs on the Redskins team that won Super Bowl XXVI, and — later — a member of Mike Shanahan’s Denver Broncos teams that won Super Bowls XXXII and XXXIII. So he’s pretty uniquely well-positioned to understand both Mike Shanahan and the Washington Redskins.

So it’s kind of exciting that he — like fellow ex-Bronco Bill Romanowski — has come down pretty enthusiastically in favor the Shanahan hiring.

Here are his comments from ESPN’s NFL Live today, transcribed courtesy of the nice folks at ESPN PR:

“Absolutely, I think it’s going to work. He’s a great football coach. Mike Shanahan’s a very intelligent guy. He will grind, he’s a great football coach, but he’s very smart and he understands why he’s no longer the head coach of the Denver Broncos. It’s because of the personnel decisions. He made personnel decisions both in the draft and also as far as free agency is concerned that didn’t work out. So he understands that aspect of it. Mike Shanahan, there’s no question in my mind — a Hall of Fame caliber coach, just not a Hall of Fame personnel guy. So I think he will defer in a lot of those scenarios to his general manager. They will work as a team. But make no bones about it, he can flat coach a football team. He knows this game inside and out.”

Like I said, that’s terrific stuff. But not nearly as terrific as the introduction to that 1992 SI profile of Schlereth, who apparently would’ve been blog gold if there had been blogs back in his day. Check this out:

The Shanahan Press Conference

Posted by Matt Terl on January 6, 2010 – 4:33 pm

In case you missed the riveting spectacle of guys in suits talking at a podium (and also didn’t follow the even more riveting spectacle of me typing about guys in suits talking at a podium on Twitter) here it is. I’ll have transcription and more later, but for starters, here’s the video.

Introducing New Head Coach Mike Shanahan

Posted by Matt Terl on January 6, 2010 – 2:00 pm

So here we go, a press conference introducing new head coach and executive vice president of football operations Mike Shanahan. The image above is the cover of the media packets that are being distributed at the presser; you can download the whole packet as a PDF here.

I’ll be covering the press conference via Twitter as it happens; you can follow along at that link or in the Twackle module after the jump below.

Taking Care Of The Details

Posted by Matt Terl on January 6, 2010 – 1:22 pm

Every office I’ve ever worked at, I’ve always felt threatened by the sliding nameplate next to the door. This is a little bit because the interchangeability of the nameplates seemed to somehow symbolize the transience of my position, and a lot because I’m just neurotic like that.

But if you’re NOT being completely negative about things, details like office nameplates are what make things real — or, at least, make them seem official. So I was glad that an intrepid Redskins Broadcast Network cameraman was around when one of the equipment guys did this.

I debated dropping some music underneath it, but thought the silent version seemed both more serious and more understated. The musical rendition is after the jump, for those of you who prefer things a little jauntier. Read more »

Chris Cooley, Broncos Fan

Posted by Matt Terl on January 6, 2010 – 9:58 am

The forest of satellite uplinks in front of the building keeps growing, the media relations staff is hurrying around, and the auditorium is being set up for the two o’clock press conference, about which much (much!) more later.

In the meantime, here courtesy of Redlasso is Chris Cooley, discussing his childhood Denver Broncos fandom with FOX-5′s Dave Feldman. Hopefully this will help tide you over until 2:00.

Wednesday, January 6: A Picture.

Posted by Matt Terl on January 6, 2010 – 6:00 am

Hey, maybe that press conference today isn’t going to be about the nine futures contracts after all.

Or maybe Daniel M. Snyder and Mike Shanahan are really, really excited about Anthony Alridge and Doug Dutch. I suppose we’ll all find out this afternoon. Read more »
