Redskins and Texans share coaching ties

On Wednesday, the Redskins will put the victory over Dallas behind them and begin preparations to host the Houston Texans in Week 2.

There are many ties between the teams, beginning with the head coaches. Houston Coach Gary Kubiak formerly served as the offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos under Coach Mike Shanahan, who is in his first season with the Redskins. Shanahan also coached Kubiak, a onetime Broncos backup quarterback.

Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan served on Kubiak's Texans staff for four seasons, rising to offensive coordinator last season. Quarterbacks coach Matt LaFleur, assistant special teams coach Richard Hightower and strength and conditioning coach Ray Wright all have worked for the Texans' organization. Houston defensive coordinator Frank Bush coached linebackers on Shanahan's staff in Denver. In addition, Tony Wyllie, senior vice president, was a vice president with Houston.

"Frank Bush was with me for a number of years as a position coach, as a special teams coach," Shanahan said the other day. "I know, obviously, Gary [Kubiak] and the staff there as well. They know me, so I am not sure if there are any big advantages, but we do know each other."

The game also will be a welcome reunion for Kubiak.

"Well, first off it's respect," Kubiak said of his relationship with Shanahan. "He's a Hall of Fame football coach and I'm glad to see him back in the game. For me sitting at home watching him there and getting after it again, it's a good feeling.

"But he's got a fine football team. And obviously, some of our [former] coaches are there, Kyle, Richard Hightower is there. Matt is there, so a lot of our past is there. So it'll be a good football game and a big test for us on the road."

I'd like to see team use Darrel Young more as backup fb. Sellers is fine as a lead blocker, but we shouldn't be passing to him. Poor hands, and fumbles too often. Let's use both backs, but throw to DY.

Fair enough. He certainly didn't have a good or great performance out there. What a disappointment.

What bugged me was that weak little spin move he tried to pull, but why did he keep doing that when he was spinning right into the Center anyway? Who does he think he is, the fat Dwight Freeney?

Shanny Jr. is a big advantage this week. If Haney is in fact the greedy fat bastard we all know him to be, then he could take one hell of a bit out of the weekly NFL spotlight by stuffing up the middle on The Beercan (Foster). Foster broke his longer runs by way of cutbacks right up the middle. This is a chance for Haney to be thought of as an all-pro again rather than just a slovenly thief who doesn't even WANT to play football anymore.

Sellers is not fine as a lead blocker and now he's lost the ability to catch. He's either too high or whiffs the block altogether. Yes, Darrel Young should start.

agreed, I think Young was dinged up this week, but I like that Shanahan kept someone to push Sellers -- and replace him if he can't do it.

Sellers has always been a liability with the football. But its all about blocking ... for either guy.

Hate to say it, but expect Foster will expose AH92 for being the fat, lazy and out of shape player we all know him to be.

Most teams know that AH92 is the weak link to the Washington defense -- in that he clearly doesn't want to be int he burgundy and gold, out on the field, or playing either the NT or DE positions.

Most teams also know the best way to break off a sure 5 or 6 yards is to run it right up the gut at the fat guy -- who will typically line up out of position and then go the wrong way.

Dallas was doing it easily against AH92 last weekend, but then for some inexplicable reason, went away from the run game. Can't expect the Texans to make the same mistake.

Shanahan the elder knows this -- and recognizes the only way to minimize this vulnerability is to minimize the amount of time AH92 is on the field.

So like last week, don't expect to see the fat guy out there for more than a handful or two of plays -- and only then when the starting d-linemen need a breather -- or if and when the game is so far out of reach, one way or another -- that playing AH92 just doesn't matter any more.

Posted by: sheik1

saw the Raider game, Campbell is in the same situation he was last year -- and it looked very similar. Bad OL (with an added new wrinkle -- his center was shotgunning snaps in all sorts of unexpected places), bad WRs, checkdowns, pass rushers coming in untouched, etc.

Campbell did contribute some problems of his own -- notably on a run play where he slid 1 yard short of a 1st down that was there if he had gone forward. His best stats came with the game out of reach.

Same old stuff, for sure. But if your best WR is Louis Murphy and your OL is starting guys who wouldn't even make most teams, well, we do know what this movie looks like. We've seen it.

What I don't get is that they all loudly proclaimed Dallas to be a Super Bowl team, and now blame us for beating them.

"But their is some hope of eking out a win, ain't their?"

Knowing who you are is half the battle of achieving identity.

The other half is having the desire to change.

We shouldn't assume we can beat TENN, Indy or Houston because, let's face it, they are far superior in more way than I'd like to enumerate.

But if we take into account who we are--a defensive team with an elite quarterback/game manager--we know there are some factors in our favor that make that more than an acceptable truth:

--we face those teams at home

--our offense will improve as the quarterback comes to know it

--we can withstand a strong passing attack and find a way to win

--our teams have much improved returners who may flip the field or 'take it to the house'

What this means is that despite our weaknesses, we can use what we got to get what we want.

An old skool, NFC style approach at home works to our advantage against Indy and Houston, but not Tenn. as they are what we are: a team that can win ugly.

So let's take an ugly, hard-hitting approach that knocks out a passing quarterback or shuts down a running attack.

We may or may not beat Indy, Houston, or even Tenn, but when they leave D.C., they will feel beaten.

And that in and of itself is victory enough.

And allow him one more ride around the lake in the "Terminator" before winter sets in for good.

Because you know the Dude will find a reason to take offense to playing with the Titans again...

But I see five or six linemen, standing right across from Haynesworth, and nobody even mentions it. I think it's so much said. And they just want the division. You know? They want Haynesworth to be an outcast...but nobody in the locker room will. I think we know what Albert's capable of doing and we know he can help this team. We just got to get him to believe and understand he going out to play for the guys in the locker room. Whatever going with the front office or the media, we can't control that. But what we can control is the opportunity that we got to play for each other. My agent said Clinton is wrong.

"Man, since Portis basically came here he's had his host of haters. People (even when he was putting up 1400 yard seasons) have been on the "We shouldn't have traded Champ for Portis" garbage for a little while now.

It intensified to all out hate when he made those comments about Zorn (who had called him out in the media first FOR NO REASON) and when he called for Sellers benching (expressed to the coaching staff, not the media and appeared to be justified -- and still is).

Don't get it confused: People hate the guy for the pure sake of hating him. Like I've been saying: Haynesworth? I get it. Hate justified and understood (although I feel I don't need to bang my keyboard in disgust every time his name is mentioned like so many here) But Portis and Hall? Will never comprehend the hate, discontent, antagonism, loathing, malevolence, or whatever -- Ever.

Listen to Red trying to defend CP. I guess it's okay for CP to give his dumb opinions on dog fighting and this hot reporter situation, too?

Face it, the guy is a clown. I'm bitter because he's given opposing fanbases a lot of LOL pictures while he plays dressup on the sidelines. REAL INTIMIDATING!

Face it, my boy CHAMP BAILEY was the boss. Portis is a clown, but here's hoping he performs this year.

FF updates:

In the Peeps league, Future Winners got off to a big start and posted the week's highest score in his 98-80 win over 4-12. hakeem nicks led Future with 25, overcoming Matt Forte and his 32 for 4-12.

Fins Eat Skins slipped past He Nate Me 83-79 in a marquee QB duel. Tom Brady's 22 led the Fins and 16 from the Cardinal defense was a big help in overcoming 31 from Peyton Manning. Nate had the Jets defense on Monday night and made a good run at the win, but the deficit was just too big to overcome.

Defending champion Futaleufu Swimmers showed some early muscle, defeating the Omaha Steers 93-55. The Futa overcame -2 points from the kicker and defense. Chris Johnson, Jamaal Charles and Ronnie Brown combined for 60, but what makes the Futa a threat again ... on the bench was Arian Foster and his 44.

Monday Night's game began with the Jackalopes holding a 2 point lead over the Houston Buffaloes in the battle of father vs son. The Buffaloes, who had 22 each from Mendenhall and miles austin, needed 3 points from Dwayne Bowe. Didn't happen, as Bowe delivered a single point. Cutler and Greg Jennings led a balanced effort for the Jackalopes in their 77-76 win.

The South Hill Skulls entered Monday Night's final game 1 point ahead of the East Coast Shaft. The Shaft needed a point from the Charger defense. However, KC's big first half turned what might have been an easy win into a nail biter. Still, the Charger d delivered just enough, as the ECS won, 83-80. Wes Welker led ECS with 18. SHS had 5 scorers in double figures.

Noone Tampa dominated 35332's Zombie Hord, 86-41. Ochocinco led Tampa with 23, while Hord's 3 receivers combined for 1 point and his top scorer, Darren McFadden with 20, was on the bench.

RE: Portis and 53 packages

Who cares? When they start to let men in female locker rooms, I'll cry a f_king river for Ms. Sainz.

This is nothing but a hot broad wanting some attention. C'mon, as attractive as she is, how could she think they were not going to say or do sexually suggestive stuff? From what I hear she donned a freakin' wedding dress and claimed she's marrying Tom Brady and was carried by football players.


Nah, no publicity stunt here... So what if she went out and got titty implants and does a little modeling. She's not trying to seek any limelight.

And before someone reels out the *[in full retard voice]* "So, that's like saying a woman deserved to be raped because she wore a short skirt"... Lemme stop you, and offer you a nice tall glass of STFU because a female hanging out n a locker room getting hit on and a female being raped are two totally different things.

The only time I found Portis to be entertaining was when he was reporting the assassination of one of his alter-egos, Southeast Jerome to a few members of the press that had gathered to hear his weekly assessments.

When he broke the bad news about the murder of Southeast Jerome, one reporter immediately questioned where that occurred.

Without hesitation or even looking in the direction of the inquiring reporter, Portis responded, "In Southeast."

Genius my man, genius.

Clinton Portis is still the man, end of story.

Ryan Grant is out for the season, so CP is thrusted into the starting lineup.

I predict we have a much better offensive performance against the Texans. Their defense isn't half as good as Dallas'.(That hurt to say)

Over in the Hamster league, the defending champs, the Carroll St F Bombers struggled to an opening game win, 76-60 over Raljohn Realskins. Mendenhall and McFadden combined for 45 for F, while Raljohn's bench had 3 double digit scorers.

E Funk All Stars broke through with a big win, 101-88 over the Moss City Santanimals. Peyton's 32 led the Funk, with Ochocinco contributing 22. City had 5 players in double digits, led by Greg Jennings 14.

The Shanallenskins, the champs from 2 years ago (under the name Zornskins), met Dealer. Heading into Monday night's action, Dealer led by 8 with the Ravens defense still to play. Shanallenskins countered with Ryan Matthews and the Charger defense. The Ravens D proved better than both and Dealer prevailed, 86-78. Dealer had 21 from austin and 20 from Cutler. Shanallen had 34 from Forte in defeat. Still, the future looks encouraging for the former champ, as his bench had additional double digit scorers.

Coproliths dominated Butz for Utz, 87-24. Copro, a strong team last season, was led by Chris Johnson and his 32. Plus Copro's bench had Reggie Wayne and Shinacoe. Used wisely, Copro would have posted a score well into 3 digits. Butz also struggled with her starters, as 3 double digit scorers all sat out this game.

The Trippin' Billies, last year's runner-up overcame the Geelong Skins, 83-63. hakeem nicks had 25 and Philip Rivers 20 in the win.

Last year's regular season leader, the Cal Salmon, overcame two negative scorers to post the top total of the week in a 114-78 win over Koolaid Kids. Arian Foster's 44 led the Salmon, who got 20 more from Jamaal Charles and 18 from Wes Welker. The Kids got 22 from Tom Brady.

I'm not so sure Portis didn't have a lot to do with keeping other RB's out of DC so he could stay "the man". And he ain't no Stephen Jackson at this point either. We've hopped on the 3-4 move, now we need to switch to at LEAST a 2-back system. And not Larry Johnson/Ladell Betts/Shaun Alexander as the #2 LOL.
