Kyle Shanahan, Miracle Worker? While We’re Waiting…

It’s Monday, Monday, gotta get down on Monday…. I’m trying to not get excited. Last year at this time, we were discussing the merits of Norv Turner’s offense and how it was going to be night-and-day compared to that of Pat Shurmur. Gone was the West Coast; here was the vertical game that included the tight end to a larger degree. And while Jordan Cameron and Josh Gordon were...

Redskins players: Gruden’s offense is similar to Shanahan’s

Some of the Redskins offensive players claim that new head coach Jay Gruden’s offense is similar to the one he ran with Mike and Kyle Shanahan. “It’s not much of a difference from the offense last year, to tell you the truth,” said wide receiver Pierre Garcon, via The Washington Post. “It’s the same offensive coordinating guys from last year.” RG3 says they have to...

Mailbag: Is Kyle Shanahan a jerk?

Okay, I know this may be a dumb question…but…will more players want to come to the Browns because LeBron is back in town?‬ Maggie in Cleveland I’m going to go with no on that one. The team is still located in Cleveland (no offense to the city I’ve lived there for 15 years), there’s no winning tradition and there’s not enough spotlight to go around for Browns’ players...

Fullback Darrel Young believes there’ll be a role for him in new offense

Over the course of the past four seasons, fullback Darrel Young has proved his worth to the Washington Redskins both as a lead blocker and on special teams. Former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan often proclaimed that Young ranked among the best fullbacks in the NFL. In the past two seasons, Young helped pave the way for a rushing attack that ranked among the league leaders...

Will the Browns use a committee at Running Back?

The Cleveland Browns have an eye on the running game in 2014. If it wasn’t evident enough just seeing the Browns put high emphasis on the running back position in the draft and free agency, the addition of offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan should have said something. Under Shanahan the Browns will look to form a much different running game. Not the plodding running game that...

Grade Day: Kyle Shanahan fails at comparisons

Kyle Shanahan has a knack for being on teams that draft high-profile QB’s. In 2012, his Washington Redskins drafted Robert Griffin III, who has had some success in the NFL. Now with the Cleveland Browns, Shanahan has another college superstar quarterback on his hands in Johnny Manziel. And the two young signal callers have even more in common than that, according to the OC: ...

Coach Compares Manziel to RGIII

Before the draft, Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan did not tip his hand as to who he preferred the Browns to draft at quarterback. However, being the most experienced coach on the offensive side of the ball--particularly at evaluating the quarterback position-- Mike Pettine said he would defer a lot of the quarterback evaluation to Shanahan. Obviously, the Browns drafted...

Kyle Shanahan: Johnny Manziel is “very similar” to RGIII

When the Redskins drafted Robert Griffin III in 2012, there wasn’t much pretense about making him fight his way into the starting quarterback job. Griffin took over from his arrival in Washington and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan put together a scheme that Griffin ran well enough to win a division title. Shanahan is now in Cleveland after everything went south in a hurry...

Twitter Tuesday: Kyle Shanahan is tough, Justin Gilbert is quiet

Flying under the radar in all of the offseason commotion experienced by the Cleveland Browns is the addition of Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Shanahan has had success in the NFL, and he just may bring a fire that the Browns’ offense needs. Oh, and he happens to be very particular about how practice is run. Kyle Shanahan is a meticulous O.C. He is directing players like this...

Coaching Carousel: Kyle Shanahan

Kyle Shanahan first became an Offensive Coordinator in 2008 with the Houston Texas and now finds himself holding the same title at the helm of the Cleveland Browns’ offense. This will be his first season calling plays without either his father, Mike Shanahan, or Gary Kubiak as the Head Coach. Instead, he will work under the Browns’ new Head Coach, Mike Pettine.

Peter King believes Manziel will be the Browns week one starter

Peter King of TheMMQB.com believes Johnny Manziel will be the Browns week one starting quarterback. The good thing for Manziel is that Hoyer doesn’t have a huge head start on him in working with Kyle Shanahan and the new offense—just one month. I’d be surprised if Manziel doesn’t win the job before the Sept. 7 opener at Pittsburgh, but whether he does or not, it won’t...

Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is convinced that Johnny Manziel is more than just a college phenomenon. "It’s obvious how good of a player he is, how fun he is to watch,'' Shanahan said Thursday on the final day of minicamp. "I think it does translate to the NFL.

Shanahan key in QB evaluations

BEREA, Ohio -- One of the key people in the Browns organization, in terms of offensive thinking, is offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Mike Pettine has spent his entire NFL career on the defensive side of the ball and GM Ray Farmer played defense as a player. Pettine was an all-state quarterback in high school but he doesn't think that makes him a guru. "I was a former...

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer believes there’s a chance the Browns could end up making a draft day trade for Redskins back up quarterback Kirk Cousins.
