Spanos hiring official; Olivadotti is retained

The Washington Redskins today officially announced the hiring of Lou Spanos as their linebackers coach. The team has also chosen to retain Kirk Olivadotti as a defensive assistant. Olivadotti was the team's linebackers coach under Jim Zorn and was heavily credited for the quick development of Brian Orakpo.

Spanos comes to the Redskins after 15 years as an assistant in Pittsburgh, where he spent time working under Washington's new defensive coordinator, Jim Haslett. It's a promotion of sorts for Spanos, who worked his way from a quality control coach in Pittsburgh and last season was the Steelers' assistant linebackers coach.

"Lou has been a vital part of a Steelers defense that has had an amazing run of success of the last 15 years, particularly from the linebacker position," Coach Mike Shanahan said in a statement released by the team. "He has familiarity working with Jim and he will be a tremendous asset to our staff."

The release notes that Spanos coached nine different linebackers who combined for 19 Pro Bowl appearances. As for Olivadotti, Orakpo is his first Pro Bowl player. Olivadotti also worked his way from quality control coach and is the longest-tenured member of the Redskins' coaching staff (he joined the team in 2000).

"K.O. has tremendous versatility and will be a tremendous help to our entire defensive staff, just as he has for the past 10 years here," Shanahan said. "He has made a quick impression on me and I am happy to be able to keep him with our team."

Shanny is no joke, so that must have been one good impression.

Re: Grossman from the previous thread.


Some of you misunderstood my initial comment. The point is that I see things aligning in that direction. I don't think it's the long-term answer for the Skins.

Even so, what on God's green earth makes anyone think that JC17 would do any better in a new Shanny system next year than Rex Grossman who already knows it?

Unless you think Shanny intends to roll out Zorn's playbook, then we are talking about TEACHING JC17 A BRAND NEW OFFENSE FROM SCRATCH. We have about 4 years of first-hand data on JC17 to gauge the likely success of him playing well in a first-year system.

Frankly, I'm all for giving Sexy Rexy a shot to run the offense, so that the coaches can focus on tutoring up a new QB; rather than tying up the team/coaches with the headache of having to teach JC17 from scratch simply to be a placeholder for a future QB.

I'd rather watch Rex throw some deep balls that get picked off now and then rather than sit through another year of JC17 checking it down all day.

You bring up a question that I've had and no one has asked. I'm sort of surprised none of the reporters have asked.

Both Shanahan and Zorn came from the same coaching tree. Zorn worked for Holmgren who was OC for the 49ers. Shanahan was the OC that followed Holmgren in SF.

Shanahan and Holmgren are the two guys that directly inherited Bill Walsh's offense.

While I'm sure Shanahan and Holmgren added elements unique to them, at the core, they started from the same playbook under the same teacher.

The question is: how similar are Zorn's playbook/approach to Shanahan's?

It's a valid question, but I tend to think that the whole "common coaching tree" stuff is overrated.

Let's not forget that Gibbs and Al Saunders both came from the same Don Coryell philosohpy, but their playbooks and offenses were very different. It was basically installing a new offense.

No, I expect them to keep JC. We need a backup tho. I'm not sure Colt is ready, so I would not be opposed to bringing Grossman in as a backkup, better than TC now. I wouldn't give up anything to get him, but if Texans waive him, I'd be fine with him as backup.

I disagree p1. I think Shanny will build up the OL, and retain JC. I'm OK with Rex as a backup, just like TC with Sanders. But if we protect JC, he will be fine. Maybe not franchise QB, but upper half of starting QB's, say top 10-15. Then if Shanny wants to bring in a QB this year or next, I'm fine with that. But I think JC is a better option for 1-2 years and Grossman. And you never know, he may surprise us, if we have solid OL and running game.

Still not getting it.

When Rex had a decent running game and solid defense to lean on, he went to a Superbowl.

Does he throw ints? Sure. He throws alot of deep balls and takes some risks, and makes some bad throws.

Of course last year we were all begging JC to throw some more deep balls and take some more risks even if it meant more INTs and some bad throws.

Rex knows the offense, and has already shown that - when surrounded by sufficient talent - he can lead a team to a Superbowl.

Neither of these things can be said of JC17...yet somehow he's the better option?

We're talking about finding a guy who can quickly step in to lead a Shanahan offense for a year or 2 while a long-term solution is groomed.

All in all, yes, Garcia is a better QB than either Ramsey or Grossman.

For the purposes of what we are looking for in real-time, it's not so clear.

If they are smart they will focus on the O-line and defensive backs ... new coaches for both areas, hopefully new players. They have enough to more than get by anywhere else. Comparing JC means YOU ALSO have to look at his athleticism. Which is why he survived this season. Even Ramsey had a still very talented Chris Samuels and Joh Jansen working for him. We all know the owner won't be patient ... yet Allen and Shanahan must be. It'll be a hard choice between top flight OL and defensive backs. But I would guess the OL has to come first.

Posted by: periculum | January 16, 2010 3:29 PM | Report abuse

Rex Grossman signed a one year deal with the Texans. He's an UFA this year. The Texans don't have to release before he becomes available.


The key here will be how Kyle Shanny thinks about Rex. If it's Rex or JC, they are going to be here for 1 r 2 years. The Shanny's will draft or acquire a QB or 2 and bring them up in their program.

IMO I stick with JC,unless a decent pick or combination there of, materializes. Then I go to plan B and get either Grossman or Rosenfels to compete with Colt and the rookie QB (s).

Young Shanahan has seen enough of Grossman to know he wants no part of him. Houston played Jacksonville during their play off run and Schaub go hurt on the 1st play off the game. He went to the locker room for X-rays and returned in the second quarter. By then, Rex Grossman had thrown an interception and Houston trailed 17-0. Grossman was 3-9 for 33 yards and that int. So he has shown he is worthless. With the career numbers Garcia has of 161 passing tds with 83 ints and another26 rushing tds he is the obvious choice.

He is one of only three assistant coaches to be on the Super Bowl XXX, Super Bowl XL and Super Bowl XLIII coaching staffs, joining defensive line coach John Mitchell and defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau.

As a defensive assistant, Spanos assists the linebackers and the defensive coaching staff with game preparation, video analysis and scouting of Steelers’ opponents.

Let me preface this by saying the following.

By NO MEANS is either Rex Grossman OR Jason Campbell; a franchise QB, the permanent answer at the position for the Redskins, or even a great bandage for the team's open wound at the position.

However, if I have the choice between Campbell or Grossman...it's Grossman.

Before you scoff...lookie here...

Exhibit A:
Jason Campbell [w/Redskins]= 1 winning seasons, 0 playoff wins...longest winning streak 4 games

Exhibit B:
Todd Collins [w/Redskins]= 1 winning seasons, 0 playoff wins...longest winning streak 4 games

Exhibit C:
Rex Grossman [2006 Bears]= 13-3, 1st div/best NFC, beat #2 seed in NFC title game by 25 points...longest win streak(s) [2]; 7 games, 4 games

sacked 21 times in reg season

SB loss to Indy Colts

in case you think their RB propped him up....

2006 Rushing Chicago
Thomas Jones Chi 1210 yd, 6TD [11th]


Grossman has demonstrated an ability to play fairly well when a system is tailored to his strengths, has engineered come from behind wins, and has won when it counts...as has Collins...how about Campbell?

Not so much.

Grossman comes in with less baggage (here) and lower expectations than Campbell.

He'd also have a deeper WR corps here than he has ever had before.

He'd be cheaper, too.

Thoughts?

There is no way on god's green earth that Shanahan will keep Campbell.

Shanahan the HC (dad) is an intense guy. Shanahan the OC (son)is an intense guy.
Campbell has no intensity what-so-ever.

The Shanahans will have no patience for Campbell.
These coaches also expect ALOT form their QBs. After reviewing the game films, they'll notice a QB that is slow with the ball, and slow to read defenses.

Although everyone says that a better option is not available, I believe that the Shanahans will still give someone else a shot. Campbell will not accept a one year contract while we groom a rookie QB.

This year Campbell was focussed on getting a long term contact. He is simply not willing to take the one year.

They'll more than likely trade Cooley for a 3rd round pick, then send that pick for Sage.

Have you watched any of the NFL Playoffs games if you had you would understand how imperative it is to have a foundation its called a freaking offensive line!!!!!!!!!

Unless you think Shanny intends to roll out Zorn's playbook, then we are talking about TEACHING JC17 A BRAND NEW OFFENSE FROM SCRATCH. We have about 4 years of first-hand data on JC17 to gauge the likely success of him playing well in a first-year system.

I would rather have Sage Rosenfels than Rex Grossman. He is familliar with Texans Offense as well even started several games when Schaub was hurt two years ago. He has also been on the bench this year watching Brett Fhavre. He wants a chance to start and that is what he thought he was going to have a chance to do until Brett was signed. We had Rosenfels and Spurrier traded him to the Dolphins.

I do not think any of these guys is better than Campbell but if we tender JC the equivalent of a 2nd / 3rd round draft pick and somebody else wants him it would probably be best for JC and the Redskins.
