Shanahan to meet with assistants again Monday

Don't expect a whole lot of movement on the coaching staff front in the next few days. Washington's new head coach, Mike Shanahan, who's back in Denver today, has given the current group of Redskins' assistants the weekend off, and he's expected to meet with them again Monday morning.

While the future of most is up in the air, at least one assistant has his next gig already lined up. Running back coach Stump Mitchell told the Baton Rouge Advocate that he still can't technically accept Southern University's offer to become the school's next head coach, but "you can tell [Southern's] Board of Supervisors that I will see them Wednesday," Mitchell said. "I will be in Baton Rouge on Wednesday."


Mitchell was offered the head coaching position there Dec. 31, but he's still under contract with the Redskins and doesn't plan to accept Southern's offer until he's interviewed with Shanahan. The Advocate called it an exit interview, not a job interview.

Mitchell, one of a handful of assistants that Jim Zorn was allowed to hire, told the Advocate that he's in California this week, tending to personal matters and is scheduled to speak with Shanahan on Monday. He made it clear, though, that his next professional step won't likely be another season as an NFL assistant.

"I can say that I'm not looking for a better job. I'm looking to do a better job. For now, in the NFL, I can't do a better job than what I've done," Mitchell said. "Right now I'm looking for a better job, and the only way I can do a better job is if I'm entrusted with guiding an entire team."

Redskins plan to meet with Haslett
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on January 8, 2010 12:55 PM ET
We first mentioned Wednesday that Jim Haslett could be a name to watch as a potential defensive coordinator in Washington.

NFL Network's Jason LaCanfora reports the Redskins indeed plan to meet with the former Saints and UFL head coach. The Redskins are also interested in Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer.

Haslett reportedly wants to bring in former chiefs defensive line coach Tim Krumrie if he is running a defense. Players working under a Haslett/Krumrie combination should expect a lot of yelling coming their way.

I like this Shanny dude.... most other new Head Coaches would of "scorched earth" the coaching staff immediately to make a statement but in the long run, they short change themselves by losing current player "scouting" intelligence.
Most of the staff is on Contract till Feb 26th.. So if you fire them now, you have to pay them anyway through that date.. What better way to get up to speed on the players abilities or shortcomings than to interview their coaches?
Shanny should pick their brains until the last day of payroll.

Krumrie is highly regarded and well respected around the league. Not sure why he would diminish Haslett's value.

Posted by: dfbovey | January 8, 2010 1:10 PM | Report abuse


I'm basing that on several of his post-game comments when he was asked about whiffed tackles, getting beat in coverage, biting on double-moves, etc.

In his responses he would talk about how someone that he tried to tackle (but missed) was "someone else's guy".

Really? You are a saftey. Your job is to tackle guys when other people can't/don't.

He was unapologetic about biting on double moves talking about he he's always gonna go for the big play.

Not too long after that, we stopped seeing him at FS and starting seeing him more around the line at SS.

What if Landry never matures? What if he's a physically talented bonehead? What if he just decides he's gonna torpedo tackle people no matter what? What if he turns into the 2nd coming of Roy Williams - a guy who got hyped early in his career b/c of big hits, but then couldn't get on the field b/c teams exploited his weaknesses and he never learned? What if we miss this opportunity to get something else back for him and his career slides? In case you didn't notice, he acutally regressed since last year in his capacity as a free safety.


Posted by: p1funk


What did he exactly that would suggest that he wasn't a team player? I'm willing to bet that it was something you conjured up in your head.

Don't know if you know this but "I'm not changing my style of play" ≠ Not a team player

Again, look at the entire picture and not just the hot chick with the ti-ti's hanging out.

The ENTIRE secondary, not just Landry regressed this past season. All of them. What does that tell you? That the coaching SUCKED and the scheme SUCKED.

It's easy to blame Landry because he out of all of them had the worst season. But why aren't you asking yourself about the game-planning, scheme, and coaching. You're being very short-sighted on this... maybe because it's your reeking bias against Landry and that's understandable. But how about dialing back the "I hate Landry, I wish he'd die" shtick for about five minutes and look at the situation as a whole?

Typical RI poster that when they smell blood in the water, they act like all the other sharks and pounce. Do your own hunting and get off the "monkey see, monkey do" crap.

Whatever, p1. We can debate this until whenever, and it still isn't going to make any difference. But excuse me for wanting to see how the #6 overall pick in the 2007 draft can be coached differently when the new defensive coordinator comes in. I have a thesis, but maybe, just maybe they can have a positive influence on him. And guess what?!?!?! If he still stink it up again next year, they can still get draft picks for him. It isn't like Landry's deficiencies are only known to RI and Redskins Park.

Wait, so Stump thinks that he couldn't have possibly done a better job here than what he did???? Southern ought to look very closely at the decision they just made.

Shanahan won two Lombardi trophies and said that "as a coach you always make mistakes and are constantly evaluating yourself and how you can get better...."

Stump after 4 wins and a pitiful offense says that he did the best job he possibly could have.....

As for Krumrie, I may be wrong, but I can't remember any player he's coached that has been dominate at DL. Tyson Jackson, Glenn Dorsey are the latest example. I thought back to his days with the Bengals, no one comes to mind. Krumie was a solid player, but as a coach I don't know. Please enlighten me, I could be wrong.

This guy sounds like a tough SOB which is what we need for certain members of our D-Line.

Plus KC has had some very good D-Lines in the years he was there, you can't knock it out of the park every year. They had some crappy players over the last fiew years not his fault.

Professional career
Krumrie was selected to the Pro Bowl twice, in 1987 and 1988, and assisted the Bengals to one Super Bowl appearance. He finished his career with 34 sacks and 13 fumble recoveries for 35 return yards in 188 games. At the time of his retirement, his 34 sacks were the fourth highest in franchise history.

Krumrie suffered two breaks in his tibia and another in his fibula during Super Bowl XXIII against the San Francisco 49ers. He refused to go to the hospital, insisting on staying in the locker room and watching the game on television, only leaving when the paramedics told him he might go into shock. After a 15-inch steel rod was surgically implanted to stabilize the leg, Krumrie was ready by the 1989 regular season, and played six more years with a steel rod in that injured leg and led the team with 97 tackles in 1992. Krumrie concluded his playing career following the 1994 campaign) after compiling 1,017 tackles (700 solo), 34.5 sacks (-238.0 yards), 13 fumble recoveries, 11 forced fumbles and 10 passes defensed.

[edit] Coaching career
After retiring in 1994, Krumrie joined the Bengals organization as defensive line coach. He was the defensive line coach for the Kansas City Chiefs until his dismissal on January 5, 2010.

Mitchell said, "Right now I'm looking for a better job, and the only way I can do a better job is if I'm entrusted with guiding an entire team."


Perhaps he should be entrusted with guiding himself to an English book.

This reads like a broke rapper's unpublished verse.

Stump came here to support a friend in Jim Zorn who otherwise had none.

He must've stood at practice everyday and thought it was a great idea the team rested Clinton Portis so he wouldn't be too tired to do John Thompson's radio show.

Before he goes, I'd like his opinion about Mason, Ganther, Portis, Betts, and Cartwright.

Who's worth saving, who's worth letting go, is all.

Otherwise, he finishes a stellar career as the Rooney Rule coach who had the sense not to interview for a job he wasn't going to get.

I agree with those that say no on Krumrie as a DLine coach...he was the with the Chiefs the last several years under two different head coaches and they spent numberous high round draft picks....top 10 picks even on d-line and have nothing to show for it. That's why he was fired 4-3 or 3-4 defense both the guy was plain ineffective.

"In his responses he would talk about how someone that he tried to tackle (but missed) was "someone else's guy"."

This could mean (rather putting it all on Landry) that the guy Landry is talking about was supposed to be the assignment of another member on the defense. Based on where Landry was playing, to save the play, Landry had to come a good 20-30 yards from the opposite side of the field to make the stop. It could be that SOMEONE else not named LANDRY blew their assignment.

And yes he is a safety, but how do you know what side of the field is he shaded on?

Not trying to be condescending, but have you played football before? Do you know how zone defenses work, and how defenders have areas of the field that they are responsible for? You do understand that other people not named 'Laron Landry' can blow their assignment in coverage, right?

When does Shanahan return to DC? Word is he returned to Denver yesterday.

I actually saw Snyder's Maybach yesterday about 4:30 on the Beltway (the stretched out black one with that odd little media box on the trunk and Maryland plates), outer loop between Potomac and Tysons, presumably delivering Shanahan and his wife back to Redskins One.

Also I know the GM of the Tysons Palm. Apparently Snyder closed down the entire restaurant the other night and had one big table in the middle of the restaurant for Shanahan and all the owners.

Add to the $7MM/year contract, you'd wonder how Snyder can afford such given that he's had to lay off lower level staff and sue ticket holders, etc. I suppose the Six Flags bankruptcy settlement has taken a bit of financial burden off of him.

RedD,

I haven't read the whole thred you're commenting on, so don't tase me, bro!

...but I'm thinking much of this year's (and the last few, actually) coverage problems are stemming from there just being too much for players to think about in their pre-snap reads.

Some evidence of this, anecdotally at least, is when guys were in position and ready, they made plays well. It's when the guys were reacting that the problems happened... of course, that brings up the whole 'chicken vs. egg' scenario...

Maybe people should stop playing them out of position. Dorsey wasn't bad at all as a 4-3 DT. He's just not a 3-4 DE. Tyson Jackson played 4-3 DE in college. He may turn out to be a 3-4 DE but it will be another year or two until he is strong enough. The worst part is that their NT and both DEs are barely 300 pounds soaking wet. I think we are better suited to play a 3-4 then the Chiefs. Tyson Jackson would be much better as a LDE in a 4-3 and Dorsey would be a very good DT in a 4-3. If they could get a true 3-4 NT then I bet both these guys would see a lot better production. Terrence Cody would be a great fit for them. If I were them I'd trade down and try to get Cody and a LT.

First, my criticism of Laron Landry is that I think he's appeared to be less coachable than Chris Horton:

"He's going through a learning process," Gray said of Landry. "The guy was All-American strong safety, great player, really aggressive. Now you're playing free [safety], which is more cunning. You've got to be really thinking in that position. And that's the thing he has to do. He has to learn to more passive, rather than aggressive at free safety."

Landry's thoughts???


"No matter how it looks I'm going to try to jump on it, get the break on something," Landry said. "Staring it down, they ran a nice double move. He [Brees] stepped up in the pocket, I watched him step up in the pocket. ... Great call in that situation."


Now, you tell me. Does this sound like a guy who is on the same page with his coach? Who is taking input about how to learn to play the position better?

I just add this to show that I'm not conjuring this stuff up in my head.

Now I don't know where your rant about the scheme and coaching and being bias is coming from.

I've said again and again that I don't think Landry is a bum.

I've said that the Skins need draft picks. When I look at the roster, I see depth at the safety position.

I've said that I think LL30 has the most value out of anyone that we could possibly trade and since Horton has a good chance of being able to step in and play big at SS, we should look to shop him.

""I can say that I'm not looking for a better job. I'm looking to do a better job. For now, in the NFL, I can't do a better job than what I've done," Mitchell said. "Right now I'm looking for a better job, and the only way I can do a better job is if I'm entrusted with guiding an entire team."

Dorsey is a good DT in a 4-3. He's just not quite strong and fast enough to be a 3-4 DE. If I were a team running a 4-3 I'd see if they would deal him on the cheap in a year or two. The guy would beast out next to Haynesowrth.

Haslett and Bruce Allen have spent some time in the same org, so I wouldn't be surprised if Haslett gets some serious consideration. I don't want to see another bend but don't break rigid 4-3 defense. I'd like to see a more dynamic defense that throws in 3-4, 4-3, 5-2: just mixes it up a lot so QB's have to spend a lot of time trying to figure out who is on the field and who could be blitzing. I would also like to see a coach who believes in emphasizing the stars by moving them around: kind of like what NYG did with LT. To me, the beauty of having a guy like Orakpo who can play linebacker and end, is to make it look like they are playing one position when really they are playing the other.

Montgomey is the ultimate underacheiver/Gohlston is the ultimate overacheiver.

If their were a Joe Bugel DLine Coach, Montgomery can be all-pro.

Krumie, I think is that guy. And Montgomery will be restricted, again this year. So he ain't going no where...

...But we may have to either decrease Griffin's playing time or cut him so Montgomery can reach his height...After all...AMontgomery was the freakin QB of his High School team...

See, this is what I'm saying about Landry, p1.

Maybe Montgomery is better suited to get after the QB rather maintaining the gap.

It's a fact that Landry is better at SS than at FS, where in the Blache scheme, Landry was expected to play like Taylor did.

They used to ask Taylor to come up for run support and play coverage -- the exact same thing that they're asking Landry to do. When Taylor was relegated to just coverage, it resulted in 5 INTs in six games I believe.

What I'm saying is put the boy Landry in a position that he's better suited for instead of trying to make him something that he isn't. That goes for Orakpo and Haynesworth as well.

There are probably more too.

Houshmandzadeh says locker room stood behind Mora
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on January 8, 2010 2:52 PM ET
Jim Mora's firing caught Seahawks receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh by surprise, like a lot of folks.

"I was very shocked," Houshmandzadeh said. "It's something that I can't believe. I think coach Mora is a hell of a coach. You can point to a lot of things. It's unfortunate coach Mora has to take the blame for all of us."

Amidst speculation that Mora's players tuned out at the end of the season, Houshmandzadeh said that wasn't the case.

"That's all media talk. Everybody in the locker room was behind coach Mora. Every man in there stood behind him."

The Seahawks didn't show their support on the field. They lost their last four games by a combined score of 123-37.

We'll have more on who may be Houshmandzadeh's next coach in a few minutes.

Skill position players largely missing from Pepsi rookie of the year field
Posted by Mike Florio on January 8, 2010 2:45 PM ET
Last year, the five finalist for the Diet Pepsi Rookie of the Year included only quarterbacks and running backs: Joe Flacco, Matt Ryan, Steve Slaton, Matt Forte, and Chris Johnson.

This year, with the award being renamed for the sugar-sweetened version of the beverage, the candidates consist of guys who'd be less naturally inclined to worry about their girlish figures.

And not a single quarterback or running back.

The finalists are Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, Texans linebacker Brian Cushing, Ravens tackle Michael Oher, Bills safety Jairus Byrd, and Vikings receiver Percy Harvin, the only skill-position player of the five.

I hear ya, but it still doesn't explain his atrocious tackling and even a SS has to cover somebody once in a while. You would think that having been at SS, his tackling would be a strength, but for some odd reason, all his fundamentals went out the window.
4th Floor: The Gods created Super Tecmo Bowl and they were fair and unbiased. I mean when all 11 defenders on the field would bounce off and get run over by the like's of Okoye and Bo Jackson, it didn't get much more realistic and accurate.

I'd be inclined to agree with you. Word on the street is he is gifted athletically but lazy, with little motivation. With Griffin getting up there in years, it makes the depth at DT look a little sparse.

ga, no doubt Landry had a few "Wtf" moments when trying to tackle, but with the coaching overhaul and especially if they get Haslett in here, that stuff is either going to get fixed, or they will ship him the hell outta here.

All I'm saying is give the guy one more year under a new trio of defensive coaches and see how he does, if he's still playing with his head up his ass, fine send him on his way. But one more year for the #6 overall pick in 2007 isn't much to ask.

It took three years for the light to go for Taylor. Add to that they finally put the man in right spots on the field to make plays. They did this because they catered to his strengths, and stopped asking him to be m-f'ing Superman. And add to that they put a safety next to Taylor that complimented him well.

Laron Landry.

If Shanahan thinks he is a good as Gibbs he should be able to manage with Campbell and Colt Brennan ... until the OL is built ... NO to drafting QBs. Lineman. Corners. KICKER!

Pete Caroll to the Seahawks??

Stooopid!

I see why Frazier didn't want to interview, now....

But, if you know who you want, and he ain't a minority, WTF is a owner/GM to do? What guidance does the NFL give?

I am now guessing that Goodell was involved in this whole Redskin conspiracy.......

Part of the Rooney rule thinking was that the interview experience itself is important, even if the candidate doesn't get the job. Jerry Gray interviews in 2009 and didn't get the job. But the next time he is a candidate, he has interview experience, which will help him.

The ONLY QB Shanahan drafted between 2000 and 2008 in the top 5 rounds was Cutler.

my friend's mother's half-sister's hairdresser saw Jerry Gray getting on a flight to Seattle. Now I know its not Gray's style to interview for vacant HC job, but maybe he was asked to interview before Mora got axed.

Just saw on Yahoo sports that Russ Grimm is a HOF finalist again. He better make it this year. Anyone know who presents for him?

LL owns a spider monkey, an F-650 super diesel and a Lambrogini? Is he 12 years old?

periculum would you draft CB ahead of FS? I'm thinking FS is a glaring need that wasn't exposed until late in the season, but man was it exposed.

What did he exactly that would suggest that he wasn't a team player? I'm willing to bet that it was something you conjured up in your head.

Don't know if you know this but "I'm not changing my style of play" ≠ Not a team player

Again, look at the entire picture and not just the hot chick with the ti-ti's hanging out.

The ENTIRE secondary, not just Landry regressed this past season. All of them. What does that tell you? That the coaching SUCKED and the scheme SUCKED.

It's easy to blame Landry because he out of all of them had the worst season. But why aren't you asking yourself about the game-planning, scheme, and coaching. You're being very short-sighted on this... maybe because it's your reeking bias against Landry and that's understandable. But how about dialing back the "I hate Landry, I wish he'd die" shtick for about five minutes and look at the situation as a whole?

Typical RI poster that when they smell blood in the water, they act like all the other sharks and pounce. Do your own hunting and get off the "monkey see, monkey do" crap.

Whatever, p1. We can debate this until whenever, and it still isn't going to make any difference. But excuse me for wanting to see how the #6 overall pick in the 2007 draft can be coached differently when the new defensive coordinator comes in. I have a thesis, but maybe, just maybe they can have a positive influence on him. And guess what?!?!?! If he still stink it up again next year, they can still get draft picks for him. It isn't like Landry's deficiencies are only known to RI and Redskins Park.

I agree with that thought whole heartedly. Everyone wants to blame certain players for everything that went wrong. Not only Landry but how about haynesworth. These two have been beaten to a pulp not because they are bad players and played accordingly but because they are capable players i believe more than capable but were used way outside of their style of play. To expect them to meet their potential it is up to the coaches to put them in the best possible situation to use there abilities correctly. Give these guys a year under a coach that will use there talents instead of "sticking to the scheme" before we cast them off as busts and wasted spots on the roster.

Several Moc Drafts have the Rams taking Clausen. I would not be surprised to see Rosenfels with the Redskins, he was backup to Shaub in Houston last year. Already is familiar with the offensive scheme. Campbeel will be tendered but I bet Campbell has told his agent to do anything he can to get him out of DC.

Hey Shanny, don't bother meeting with Stan Hixon, just show that guy the door.
