‘No Knockout Punch In This League’

In this week’s “The Mike Shanahan Coach’s Show,” head coach Mike Shanahan discusses rebounding from a disappointing loss in Dallas and how to prepare for another road test.

The NFL is a game of adjustments, and the team seemed focused on earning a ‘W’ this week.  115 minutes until kickoff:

  1. Someone posted on another blog that Grossman has turned the ball over 13 times in his last 6 starts as a Redskin. Is that accurate? I think I’d like to see what Beck can do.
    On defense, I’ve never seen blitzes get picked up so well like they do against the Redskins. It doesn’t seem to matter who the defensive coordinator has been over the years the blitzes get picked up. The D line needs to step up. I would like to see a little bit more of Chris Neild in the games.

      Yes, Grossman has turned the ball over 13 times, but also remember that not all of those were his fault. Does that matter? Not particularly, but it does mean that other quarterbacks would make the same reads and possibly make the same mistakes. We’ll see how he does today.

      Also, the pressure is hitting home at a greater rate than it did last year. Before last week, the Redskins were one of the top defenses for sacks, and still remain in the top third of the league. I think they have a big opportunity to rattle Bradford this week, and I think they need to in order to win. We’ll see how they do too 🙂
