Les Shapiro interviewed Mike Shanahan today on the new denver sports radio station (87.7 fm). A summary -

What's up with albert haynesworth?

He's ready to go. He looks in shape.

How do you feel about donovan mcnabb?

His record in philly speaks for itself. He's a great great athlete,
a natural leader, and he has alot of confidence in his ability. He has
the lowest interception rate ever from an NFL quarterback. And he can make plays with his legs.

How are the Redskins at running back?

We have good depth with proven nfl players They all did a good job in the off season program

What was the biggest change from being away from football for a year?

It was a good break. I found there are alot of people
who work everyday - there was nobody to do things with (laughs)

On your old team, the broncos, some of the key young players you acquired (cutler, marshall, scheffler) have been traded away. How do you feel about that?

It's hard to walk in somebody else's shoes. Everybody has
a philosophy - Josh has his own style. We had a zone blocking system and good young talent - we thought we were headed in the right direction that last year. It will take josh some time to get the personnel he wants to fit his system.

How is your son doing as the offensive coordinator?

He's been around football all his life. He was on the sidelines during
the super bowl years. He has a great background. The last couple of years
when calling plays for gary (kubiak) houston's offense was #1. He has some great insights and philosophies. We are working with his ideas and some things we've done in the past in Denver. i feel good of where we are at

The broncos and redskins each have a long sellout streak. You are walking into another pro town with a college atmosphere.

I'm looking forward to it. Playing our opener sunday night with dallas at home will be exciting. I feel very fortunate to be in a town with great tradition and fans, very similar to denver.

I miss Shanahan. I wish he would have found himself a good d coordinator before he got fired. I think that offense and a guy like Nolan controlling the defense could have won a lot of games. It is hard to accept the way this team now deals with players after having a pro like Shanahan around for so long.

Shanahan may be the HC and McNabb may be the QB, but Snyder is still the owner and that will always equal FAIL.

You're right. Shanahan neverhad conflicts with players or coaches. LOL

Here's the difference: when Shanahan experienced a conflict, he was afforded the benefit of the doubt from you and most other fans. Portis was a prima-dona. Coyer and Bates "had to go". etc. etc. etc.

wasn't his refusal to fire his defensive coordinator the main issue with Bowlen when he fired Mike? Personally a 24-24 record the last 3 years was reason enough to send him packing.

Maybe....but I suspect that the QB who went to Oakland (irony of ironies) won't be missed.

I dislike the skins because they destroyed my team in a SB....but I've always like Gibbs and am a big fan of Shanahan. He will coach this team to 1st place. Watch. That first game is now on my list of must watch games this fall.

I agree with everything you are saying. If I were Bowlen, I would have fired him just for saying he wasn't going to fire his coordinator.

LOL. So now they handle stuff the same? What? If McDaniels was in charge of the Skins, they would be missing one of their best players right now. They would get crap compensation by going after picks. I can prove this is true because it has happened multiple times on this team already. Sure, Shanahan has problem players. He also gets all pros that don't set the team back. He replaces one of the best players on the team with a player that was the difference in our one playoff win.

Shanahan does a lot of things way different than McDaniels. If you don't see it, fine. I don't agree with you. I liked Shanahans methods a lot more.

2.1% INT ratio. That's pretty low. 216 TD passes, 100 INT's. That's a pretty good spread.

All I said was that I hold the teams that beat Denver in the super bowl (DAL, WSN, NYG & SF) in the same contempt that I hold it's AFC West Rivals. It's irrelevent who the HC or players were/are.

When it comes to football, I hold grudges...if that's "raiderish" then I'm guilty as charged.

For as much as I liked and respected Shanny I had a lot of issues with his player management. Losing guys like Atwater and Pryce never made sense to me. The handling of some of the QBs during the post Elway years - Brister v. Griese, Plummer on the hot seat after taking the team to the first playoff victory.

There was some indication that players were unsatisfied in the locker room with Shanny's player handling, including comments by Lynch and his departure and the book by Fatsis. Though it is hard to determine what the facts really are there.

Then there were things showing Shanny's lack of discipline on players (which I think was a lot more common throughout the league 5 years ago) with the Kircus Circus, BMarsh, and a few drunk driving issues.

Thats a big reason he lost the attention of the players here the last few years as well. The same old platitudes over and over got stale. Seems like he is trying to make a few changes and apparently is even copying Josh some as well (3-4 D and player conditioning tests, etc) and maybe he'll have a fresh group of ears now for his motivation speeches?

I much appreciate Shanny for his years of service here ... and am glad he's with Washington now as well.

Good post. This is exactly what I meant with my previous post. I loved Shanahan. He was/is a great coach, and I will always appreciate the Super Bowls he brought to Denver. However, he had his own issues with managing players and egos, and there were cetainly moves made that did not sit well with the player involved.

Yeah... The thing was is that Shanny did enough here early on in his career to allow himself to have those ego battles and win every time.

It will be interesting to see what the McD chapter is when we get further into the future. Will we look back at Marshall and Cutler as absolute mistakes of a young hard headed coach or will we be able to still say: "They had to go, they were head cases for Denver." Right now, I think a lot of people agree Marshall was more trouble than he was worth and those of us who are able to comprehend fact from fiction can see that Cutler was more of an ego battle between Bowlen and Jay than McD.... but I really think the draft picks we got from Jay will have to pan out for McD to ever be painted in a good light on that transaction.

Shanahan's tactics could cause players to rally around Haynesworth
Posted by Mike Florio on July 30, 2010 12:00 PM ET

As Redskins coach Mike Shanahan continues to rub defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth's face in the mess the player created by not showing up for offseason workouts, Shanahan runs the risk of alienating other players on the team -- and/or causing them to change their feelings about the player who previously had become a $100 million pariah.

Jason Reid of the Washington Post reports that some players privately have expressed concern that Shanahan is trying to make an example of Haynesworth. Unnamed team officials have conceded to Reid that Haynesworth is "clearly in shape" after losing 35 pounds in the offseason.

Reid also reports that Redskins players who failed to attend 50 percent of the offseason workouts are required to take the conditioning test. Again, this justification has no relevance to the stated purpose of the test -- to ensure that the player is ready to participate in training camp without being injured.

Under that reasoning, every player should be required to pass the test before setting foot onto the practice field.

Of course, it wouldn't be the first time Shanahan singled a guy out. Said one source with knowledge of Shanahan's tactics, "What's happening to Haynesworth is exactly how he's handled a hundred other situations like that."

We've got a feeling that specific examples of Shanahan's tactics with the Broncos will surface soon, now that he's out of Denver and back in the league.

We've also got a feeling that Shanahan's specific end game as it relates to Haynesworth is to provoke the volatile player to say or do something that will allow the team to pursue the recovery of all or part of the $21 million he received on April 1.

Along the way, Shanahan could lose a sizable chunk of the locker room.
