Shanahan Prefers Current Kickoff Rules

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 7, 2012 – 3:28 pm

National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell recently brought up the idea of eliminating kickoffs from NFL games as a safety measure.

The idea was proposed by Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano, who had a player paralyzed during a kickoff while he was head coach at Rutgers in 2010.

It’s certainly an interesting topic, especially when you think about how the league could possibly replace kickoffs. According to TIME Magazine, instead of a kickoff after a touchdown or field goal, a team would get the ball on its own 30-yard line, where it would face a 4th-and-15 situation. From there, the team has the option to punt or to go for it to retain possession of the ball. If there is a turnover on downs on the play, the opposing team gets the ball with very good field position.

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan was asked about the proposal to eliminate kickoffs, and said it’s certainly an interesting avenue for the league to explore.

Imitation Is The Sincerest Form Of Flattery

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 7, 2012 – 1:53 pm

Dennis Dixon

…but this imitation comes with limitation.

News out of the Baltimore Ravens’ practice facility is that practice squad quarterback Dennis Dixon is playing the part of Robert Griffin III for the scout team in practice.  The former Pittsburgh Steeler and Oregon Duck ran the option during his time in the great northwest, before settling into more traditional offenses in the AFC North.

He brings comparable size (listed at 6-3, 200 pounds) to Griffin III (6-2, 217 pounds) and also wears the No. 10 jersey.  And that’s roughly where the similarities end. Read more »

Week 14 Power Rankings Roundup

Quarterback Eddie LeBaron thrived for the Washington Redskins in his No. 14 uniform. From 1952 to 1953 — and then again from 1955 to 1959 — LeBaron established himself as one of the greatest Redskins players in team history, as the Redskins Ring of Fame honoree and four-time Pro Bowler (three times with the Redskins) passed for 8,068 yards and 59 touchdowns in his seven-year Washington career.

The number 14 has another significant meaning this week, as that’s where all seven of the national outlets we use for our weekly Power Rankings Roundup put the Redskins in their own rankings this week.

It just happens to be Week 14, too. The irony is almost too much.

Anyway, here’s where the Redskins fall with this week’s Power Rankings Roundup:

Paulsen: New Offense Was ‘Culture Shock’

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 7, 2012 – 10:46 am

(AP photo)

When the Washington Redskins took quarterback Robert Griffin III as the second overall pick in the NFL Draft, it was announced almost immediately that the incoming rookie was going to be the starter for the 2012 season.

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan immediately began the tedious task of figuring out how to form their offense around Griffin III’s talents, which, of course, include a big, accurate arm with the ability to stretch the field with his legs.

About seven-and-a-half months later, the Redskins own one of the top offensive attacks in football. Defensive coordinators cringe as they try to prepare their teams for what’s to come.

But the success wasn’t a given simply by drafting Griffin III. The Washington coaching staff also had make sure the 10 other guys on the field knew how to play their parts to add their brand to what’s now a well-oiled machine.

One of those key contributors to the offensive rejuvenation has been third-year tight end Logan Paulsen, who was thrust into the starter role Week 8 after a season-ending injury to Fred Davis Week 7 against the New York Giants. Paulsen prides himself on coming to the park each day around 6:30 a.m. and leaving no earlier than 6 p.m, and this “gym rat” persona has allowed Paulsen to continue his personal goals of becoming a better all-around tight end  — not coincidentally, he’s in the midst of a career year in Washington.

Paulsen was a guest yesterday on Sports Illustrated columnist Peter King’s Week 14 NFL Podcast(24:52-43:50), and discussed in great detail exactly how the Redskins’ “East Coast” offense has changed and how his teammates have adjusted — and continue to adjust — each week since Griffin III’s arrival.

Paulsen told King that the introduction of the new packages to the offense was at first mind-blowing.
