Latest Kyle Shanahan Items
Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan accepted responsibility Monday for his unsportsmanlike conduct penalty during the final confusing seconds of a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
Mike Shanahan watched the Cincinnati Bengals' sideline empty onto the field, but he knew the game wasn't over. With seven seconds left after Robert Griffin III spiked the ball, a false-start penalty on Fred Davis was all it took for havoc to erupt.
Given how the afternoon started, the Washington Redskins had no real business being in the game Sunday in the fourth quarter. They gave up a 73-yard touchdown pass on the first play from scrimmage. They trailed by 17 late in the first half -- and it would have been worse if not for a defensive score by Rob Jackson.
Obviously the Washington Redskins hope it won't come to that Sunday, but if quarterback Robert Griffin III suffers any kind of injury, another rookie will have to take his place.
Robert Griffin III's NFL debut somehow managed to match the excessive hype that preceded this day for months. How he got to that historic perch, though, is the strongest indication this is a new version of the Redskins' offense, not the anemic ones of previous last-place seasons.
Even after cutting Tim Hightower, the Washington Redskins believe in their depth at running back with Roy Helu Jr., Evan Royster and rookie Alfred Morris. All three are healthy and eager to contribute in Week 1 and beyond. So who will get the bulk of the carries Sunday at the New Orleans Saints?
Hip-hop music thumped off the walls of the Allison Indoor Football Practice Facility on Baylor University's campus the morning of March 21. Robert Griffin III and other Baylor seniors compiled for their pro day a mix that included popular hits and some lesser-known, slowed down "screwed" beats from the subgenre born in Texas.
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. The Saints ranked first in the NFL last season in yards per game and per play; second in points per game and first in first downs. And they have a record-setting quarterback at the controls.
This was a preseason of attrition for Washington Redskins running backs. Tim Hightower wasn't 100 percent after knee surgery last fall, Roy Helu Jr. missed time with sore Achilles tendons and Evan Royster felt soreness in his right knee.
