The Washington Redskins went into Cleveland last Sunday and defeated the Browns 38-21 with an offensive attack that seemingly didn’t miss a beat without starting quarterback Robert Griffin III, who was nursing a sprained LCL in his right knee.

So how’d they do it?

That’s what former NFL head coaches and NFL Network analysts Brian Billick and Dennis Green examined on a recent segment of “The Coaches Show,” in which they praise Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan for putting rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins in a position to succeed in his first-career start.

Said Billick:

Billick, Green Throw Praise At Shanahan

Dennis Green and Brian Billick have coached a combined 363 regular-season games in the National Football League, so having their respect is certainly something not taken lightly.

Green and Billick — currently analysts with the NFL Network — on Monday decided to throw some of that respect towards Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan during their segment, “The Coaches Show.”

The two former coaches were impressed with Shanahan’s playcalling on the two-point conversion in the final seconds of Sunday’s Redskins-Ravens game. After getting within two on a touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins to Pierre Garçon, the Redskins dialed up a surprising quarterback draw, which got Cousins into the end zone and tied the game.

The Redskins would go on to hold off the Ravens’ offense in overtime and then get a game-winning field goal from kicker Kai Forbath to win 31-28.

The video of Green and Billick is below, but here’s some snippets from their comments:

Winning Storyline: Revenge Or Respectability?

Putting your finger on the pulse of a football game can be difficult in some weeks, but this week should be pretty simple.  Respected NFL analysts Brian Billick and Adam Schefter have reduced the Redskins-Eagles matchup down to one storyline per team.

Adam Shefter: Redskins’ revenge?

No single performance last season was as memorable as the one Vick turned in on a rainy Monday night in Washington, when he threw for 333 yards, ran for 80 more and accounted for six touchdowns in the Eagles’ 59-28 humiliation of the Redskins. Vick was a character out of a video game and he blew up the Redskins. But now the Redskins have a chance to strike back for that game and silence the Eagles, maybe for good this season.

Brian Billick Has Some Different Opinions On The Redskins Draft Needs

Posted by Matt Terl on April 1, 2011 – 10:15 am


There’s not a lot of uniformity in the projections of what the Redskins will do with the tenth overall pick in the 2011 Draft. Heck, I alone have projected no fewer than three different people in that spot in the last week. But some positions are definitely mentioned more than others.

The useful (if overwhelming) 2011 Mock Draft Database at DC Pro Sports Report currently covers 304 mock drafts; about 46% of them have the Redskins selecting a wide receiver. Roughly 25% (75 of them) suggest one of the quarterbacks — Blaine Gabbert, Ryan Mallet, Cam Newtown, Jake Locker, and even Colin Kaepernick are all mentioned. Another 17% suggest defensive end or linebacker.

Of the remaining 22% consist mostly of defensive tackles and the occasional quarterback. (A lot of the mocks seem to believe that Prince Amukamara is going to fall to ten, which I don’t.) A total of seven of the listed mock drafts have the team going with an offensive tackle.

FOX Sports.com NFL analyst Brian Billick is reading from a different script than all those people, though. Read more »
