Atlanta Falcons Coach Mike Smith Gives Three Markers Of Disappointing Seasons

Tell me if this sounds familiar.

Led by a top-10 offense, a team races to a 2012 division crown and enters 2013 with high expectations. Several national media outlets predict another division title and a playoff run. Unable to replicate the success of 2012, the team suffers a five-game losing streak during the regular season and sits at 3-10 in Week 15.

Welcome to reality in Washington and Atlanta.  Read more »

M. Shanahan Discuss QBs, Relationships

The frustration from season-long inefficacy is no more apparent then the venomous headlines of various local publications’ websites and the tweets from reporters who spend their days living for Redskins news—both good and bad.

Of course the bad has outweighed the good in the media world recently, leading to what was a jam-packed Redskins Park this afternoon in anticipation of Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan’s press conference and a peek into his future.

After a near 24 hour wait that encapsulated the DMV’s thoughts, Shanahan took the podium at the three o’clock hour.

Here’s video of his press conference along with a live tweet summary courtesy the Redskins Official Twitter (@Redskins):

The Houston Texans relieved Gary Kubiak of head coaching duties Friday, the day after the team lost its 11th straight game.

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 5, 2013 – 2:16 pm

From a historical standpoint, this isn’t the first time that Mike Shanahan and Andy Reid have faced off in a matchup between AFC West and NFC East.

Who woulda thunk a few years ago, though, that Shanahan would be representing the East and Reid the West.

In charge of the Broncos for 14 seasons, Shanahan boasts a 16-15 overall recorded against Kansas City to include one playoff victory.

Shanahan made little importance of the head coach battle and instead focused on his own team, one that has an increasing number of injuries to speak of to include to the jumbo pregame inflatable helmet.

Shanahan: ‘KC Is A Very Talented Team’

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 4, 2013 – 2:02 pm

Moving forward from back-to-back games in prime time, the Washington Redskins host the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend with the opportunity to put their AFC West title aspirations on the ropes.

Despite losing three straight games, two of which vs. Denver, the Chiefs have experienced one of the best turnarounds in league history.

After winning only a pair of games last season, the original AFL team resorted to a culture changing move by bringing in longtime Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid and former No. 1 overall pick Alex Smith.

The duo along with a quick-strike defense, a reinvigorated Jamal Charles and Dwayne Bowe having recorded at least 50 receiving yards in six of his last nine games has Kansas City Lombardi Trophy dreamin’.

Anyway, Shanahan also focused some of his Wednesday press conference on his own team and his thoughts on some of the younger players, injury updates, the league’s penalty system, Pierre Garcon’s emotion and more.

Shanahan Tackles Hard-Hitting Presser

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 2, 2013 – 3:26 pm

In comparison to the 2012 version, the 2013 Redskins season has de-escalated quickly despite having some of the best talent in the National Football League right here in Ashburn.

Questions continue to circulate around quarterback Robert Griffin III like a pack of pitbulls that has a piece of meat in front and hasn’t eaten in days, confusion has run rampant on the decision to nip Alfred Morris appearances in the second half on more occasions than not and the defense—and for some the base 3-4 package—is failing to shut down opponents this season.

And that’s just a little tiny preview of what’s been said about this team, folks.

I didn’t even bring up the special teams struggles.

Anyway, less than 24 hours after the Redskins fell to the Giants head coach Mike Shanahan gripped the team logged microphone and was frank with his assessment.

Pereira Offers Clarity On Official Confusion

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 2, 2013 – 1:10 pm

Fullscreen capture 1222013 123554 PM

While the picture above is grainier than footage of the Loch Ness Monster, we know that the Sunday Night Football officials are offering two very different set of instructions.

At the top of your screen, head referee Jeff Triplette is signaling third down following a four-yard completion to Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon.

The clock is running inside of two minutes and no official measurement was called for, so the Redskins and Giants hustle up to the line.

But wait.

At the bottom of your screen, head linesman Phil McKinley is (incorrectly) waving the chain crew to move up to mark the first down.

So what do you do?

As a member of the Redskins coaching staff, the chain gang moves the sticks and the down marker is switched to first down. Head coach Mike Shanahan is not looking for Triplette gesturing with three fingers in the air, he’s basing his play call off the official down marker.

From there, he’s going to make an aggressive play call and target tight end Fred Davis 20 yards downfield. Picking up inches on third down was understandably the furthest thing from his mind.

After the game, Triplette offered an explanation that raised as many questions as it answered.

This morning, former Vice President of Officiating in the National Football League and current Rules Analyst at FOX Sports Mike Pereira sat down with FOX Sports Live to explain the play in detail.

WARNING: Before diving in, Pereira promises, “You’re going to see that there is a major crew breakdown.” This review is not for the feint of heart:

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 27, 2013 – 1:54 pm

It wasn’t fun. It wasn’t a game that will live positively in franchise lore.

But it’s time to move on from Monday’s 27-6 defeat.

There are still five games left on the season, two against the NFC East rival New York Giants. Game one of the season series is Sunday under the bright light of NBC’s cameras.

The Giants started the season worse than the Redskins, falling as low as 0-6 before winning four straight games. Last Sunday, despite playing in front of their loyal fan base, the G-Men watched as Tony Romo led the Cowboys to a victory.

After the first practice of the week, head coach Mike Shanahan gave a participation update on Darrel Young and Jordan Reed, filling the last spot on the active roster, quarterback Robert Griffin III and Santana Moss’ team-first mentality.

Mike Shanahan: Redskins Need “Urgency”

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 27, 2013 – 12:30 pm

(AP)

(AP)

After reviewing game film of the Redskins’ third straight loss, Mike Shanahan said the team has no choice but to recollect itself and bounce back.

In his weekly one-on-one interview with CSN Washington’s Chick Hernandez, Shanahan said a short week preparing for the Giants will be another test of his team’s constitution.

“There’s gotta be a sense of urgency with our football team that when we do get embarrassed like we did and do score six points, what are we gonna do against the Giatns? How are we gonna play? And that’s where you find out where your character comes from. “

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

Five games left–that’s what the Washington Redskins have remaining on this so far disappointing regular season campaign.

While the offense’s woes were being portrayed on televisions across this great nation, the burgundy and gold entered halftime only down by four and appeared to have the momentum edge heading inside the depths of FedExField for a quick breather and intermission pep talk courtesy head coach Mike Shanahan.

Boom! The defense’s gang tackle of Vernon Davis on the half’s third play resulted in the first forced turnover of the evening and the offense finally–after starting so many drives inside their own five this season–had fantastic starting field position.

What did they get out of it? Turnover on downs.

It’s been that type of season for the burgundy and gold.

Only hours removed from the three touchdown defeat, Shanahan really hit the turnover bug hard and gave an important injury update on the defensive line that has a huge impact on the immediate future.
