No one could blame Mike Shanahan for turning green Sunday afternoon when he sees the New Orleans Saints' offense at work in the Washington Redskins' season opener.

A patron behind me said aloud what most folks in the place surely were thinking — self included — as Rex Grossman leaned back and went long: "Why is he doing that?"

When you've got a lot of guys like that, they feel they can make some plays, and it makes my job a lot easier."
"I'm not really too confident about if I'm going to make it or not," he said. "My offensive performance was pretty good this preseason, but I didn't play any special teams. Just got to wait and see what happens."
