Darrel Young’s Criteria For New Coach

Fullback Darrel Young‘s ideal head coach would have to have one trait.

In an interview with CSN Washington, Young said he wants a coach that wants him.

“I just want… a guy that uses a fullback,” Young said.

“Coach (Mike) Shanahan and Kyle (Shanahan) found ways to put me in the offense. They found ways to get me involved in the running game. I did some good things versus San Diego, caught a pass versus Philly for a long touchdown completion. (They) just did some things and put myself in some scenarios, from a coaching standpoint, that made me feel good. I just want a coach that comes in and believes in me, believes in what we’re trying to do, believes in the players that he has. Of course with new coaches comes new change. We all understand that.”

 

Young also talked about difficulties with the offense in 2013, finding a role he never imagined and his reaction to the team relieving Shanahan of coaching duties.

Kyle Shanahan On Career, Cousins, RGIII

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 19, 2013 – 3:47 pm

(AP)

Kyle Shanahan is always adapting his approach, no matter who starts at quarterback.

The offensive coordinator spoke with the media in a Thursday press conference addressing his career aspirations, how the offense was designed for the first 13 games with Robert Griffin III at quarterback and how it’s changed with Kirk Cousins at the helm.

Shanahan also spoke about how there’s “no let up” in the Redskins’ work ethic and the recent success of wide receiver Aldrick Robinson.

Watch the full video below and follow @redskins for live press conference coverage.

Coordinators Talk Week 13, Kansas City

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 5, 2013 – 3:50 pm

Game manager or not, the Redskins hath not forgotten about quarterback Alex Smith.

Sure he might not pick you apart Peyton Manning style and he tends not to go downfield often, but he’s keen on wearing down opponents mentally to the point where uncharacteristic slipups appear.

He’s also one of the winningest quarterbacks over the last three seasons.

With David Amerson really coming on in recent weeks and Bacarri Rambo regaining some of that training camp swagger that made him a fan favorite, defensive coordinator Jim Haslett talked about his rookie DBs development with the matchup against the former N0. 1 pick looming large.

Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan explained the unit’s balance between pass and run and his strategy between running it with Alfred Morris and telling Robert Griffin III to gain chunks of yardage with his legs.

Fred Davis Could Contribute Monday Night

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 22, 2013 – 1:57 pm

For the past three days, three members of the tight end group took added reps at practice.

Rookie Jordan Reed, who’s tied for the team lead with three touchdown catches and ranks second on the club in receptions (45) and yards receiving (499) , has been sitting out with a concussion.

If Reed is unable to play on Monday Night, a spot could open up for Fred Davis, who has been listed as inactive five games in a row. Both Mike and Kyle Shanahan have been complimentary of the tight end this week. Read more »

Coach’s Turn: Kyle Shanahan At The Mic

With two new receivers added to the active roster in as many weeks, the offense has received some new blood and fresh legs for the stretch run.

What sort of impact will they have though?

After Mike Shanahan announcing that Joshua Morgan would replace Leonard Hankerson, gone for the season with injury (made room for Lance Lewis’ promotion),  in the starting lineup yesterday, he also said Fred Davis would indeed be active for the first time in over a month if Jordan Reed can’t go.

How will the offense react to the changes? Will the new guys/Griffin III’s old security blanket make an immediate impact? How often will Alfred Morris get the ball?

Younger Shanahan’s answers to all of those questions and more below:

Coach’s Turn: Kyle Shanahan At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 14, 2013 – 3:28 pm

Kyle Shanahan’s unit had the best outing of the season from a statistical standpoint last Thursday.

With Robert Griffin III tossing three early touchdown passes, Alfred Morris eclipsing the 100-yard mark and Pierre Garcon and Jordan Reed shredding one-on-one coverage, the offense was operating at near-full production.

However, in a somewhat similar situation to the Broncos game just 11 days prior, the offense’s brakes halted abruptly.

The turbo offense was effective on the last drive of the game, but on 2nd-and-goal, Jordan Reed couldn’t secure a ball in traffic.On 3rd-and-goal, the pass to Pierre Garcon was just inches out of reach. With the game on the line, Griffin III hit Santana Moss in the corner of the end zone. But with only one foot inbounds, the Redskins comeback attempt fell short.

After the first and last drive of the game stalled inside the five-yard line, a myriad of questions began to pop up.

Playing whack-a-mole, Shanahan hit each question of his afternoon press conference right on the head starting with scoring against a vastly improved Philly defense.

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 31, 2013 – 3:40 pm

In 31 career games against the San Diego Chargers as a head coach, Mike Shanahan is 20-11 with his last game in charge of the Denver Broncos coming against 10-time AFC West champs.

You know what that means for Sunday’s crucial matchup? Absolutely nothing.

It’s a Chargers team far from what he faced in the mid-2000’s and of course he’s not in blue and orange anymore. After another full day of practice, film study and team meetings, Shanahan addressed the media and gave updates on practice participation, skinny field goal posts for Kai Forbath, thoughts on Santana Moss and more.

Coach’s Turn: Kyle Shanahan At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 31, 2013 – 3:31 pm

If you were to just look at the Redskins offense on paper, you’d think they were having a pretty fantastic year so far. They rank seventh in total yards (394.4), fifth in first downs per game (22.9) and tenth in scoring (24.7 points per game).

But then there’s the reality, an offense that really hasn’t performed very well under mammoth expectations far exceeding anything seen around here in years.

As Robert Griffin III said best in his press conference yesterday, “To me, stats and rankings and stuff like that, it doesn’t always really tell the true story in my opinion. We’ve struggled at times. We’ve been really great at times. Against Chicago, we threw the ball extremely well and ran the ball efficiently and this past week, we didn’t do that. It’s a week-to-week thing; we just need to be more consistent with it.”

Consistency starts with setting a tone in the first quarter. Outscored by 47 in the opening frame, the Redskins have to abandoned their forte, a notice trend that frustrates fans.

Anyway, Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan spoke to the media this afternoon.

Coach’s Turn: Kyle Shanahan At The Mic

Breaking through the thick veil of scrutiny, Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan was pleased with his offense’s performance last Sunday.

You’ve been following all the happenings from the local media week and have seen the impact it’s had on the morale in the locker room. Players are a little more outgoing during their interviews and are quick to mention that that’s the way the offense should look.

The whoopin’ was certainly enjoyable to watch but it’s time to move on—to the Denver Broncos.

The Bronco defense has underperformed this season giving up at least 20 points six times and ranks 30th in yards given up, but like the Redskins offense has the talent to breakout at any moment.

After fulfilling his suspension, two-time Pro Bowl linebacker Von Miller is back and ready to send another message to Robert Griffin III like he did when the two were foes in college.

While he be in top tier condition to stop a read-option attacking gelling though?

Hear Shanahan in his own words courtesy of the Redskins’ Twitter account (@Redskins):
