Clinton Portis (his former, Bronco self) might have been the best of Shanahan's RBs. Not sure of his weight while playing with the Broncos, but I'd guess it's significantly smaller than those guys. Maybe 200? Different running back.
From Ryan O'Halloran, formerly of the Washington Times:
"Unofficial, but ... Andre Johnson vs. DeAngelo Hall yesterday--21 snaps. No catches for AJ80, only 103 yards offense by Hou on those plays."
He also notes that it's hard to tell if the Redskins were in man or zone from time to time.
All I know is that the Redskins' defense got TOASTED by Schaub and the Texans. Especially Doughty and Rogers.
You're right that there was very little pressure, but Schaub got the ball out fairly quick. He's a fantastic QB.
It's a private company, so the team, and the league, get to make the rules.
Shanahan's point is that he doesn't want teams to know what he's doing as soon as he's doing it.
Doesn't want teams to know every single thing the team does.
From the team's perspective, yes, I suppose there is a line that PR folks shouldn't cross. Theoretically, this could have been one of those "team sources." I don't know any of the details here, either.
