    # Browns HC Mike Pettine said Chris Tabor is one of most respected special teams coordinators in # NFL. Said many teams requested to
    interview

    Daryl Ruiter ‏ @ RuiterWrongFAN 33s
    Mike Pettine calls Chris Tabor "1 of the most well-respected ST coordinators in the league" # Browns received lots of requests to talk to him


    Nate Ulrich ‏ @ NateUlrichABJ 36s
    # Browns HC Mike Pettine said Kyle Shanahan "is one of the best offensive minds in football."

    Nate Ulrich ‏ @ NateUlrichABJ 52s
    # Browns HC Mike Pettine said Shanahan's offense is aggressive, very creative, but at same time, very fundamentally sound. Challenges D.

    Nate Ulrich ‏ @ NateUlrichABJ 42s
    # Browns HC Mike Pettine said OC Kyle Shanahan had a great interview. "He's firm. He's fair. But you can tell he's very demanding."

    Nate Ulrich ‏ @ NateUlrichABJ 1m
    # Browns HC Mike Pettine said DC Jim O'Neil played for Pettine's father at Central Bucks HS back in the 90s. Knows he has thick skin.

    Nate Ulrich ‏ @ NateUlrichABJ 44s
    # Browns HC Mike Pettine said Jim O'Neil is a tenacious coach. Smart, tough. He and I have done it together. He'll set high standards.

    Daryl Ruiter ‏ @ RuiterWrongFAN 31s
    Pettine on DC Jim O'Neil "don't let his baby face fool you" like Kyle will "set high standards, be firm and fair"

    Nate Ulrich ‏ @ NateUlrichABJ 11s
    # Browns HC Mike Pettine said his coaching staff is dedicated group of great teachers that will hold players accountable.
    Pettine sounds very high on accountability. Maybe Gilbert can ask him pull double duty in Cleveland as the Cavs are in dire need of accountability.

    Nate Ulrich ‏ @ NateUlrichABJ 33s
    # Browns OC Kyle Shanahan said anytime you bring a rookie QB in & start them right away, you've got to find out what they do well.

    Daryl Ruiter ‏ @ RuiterWrongFAN 37s
    Shanahan "I've started 1 rookie before; have to put them into situation where they can be successful; ask them to do what they're great at"
    Oh so you find out a players strengths and coach to that to give them the best ability to succeed. Can someone pass this along to "Process" Shurmur.

    # Browns DC Jim O'Neil said he's a big fan of OLB Barkevious Mingo & looks forward to working with him.

    Daryl Ruiter ‏ @ RuiterWrongFAN 1m
    DC Jim O'Neil jokes his wife made Mingo cupcakes on draft day; went to dinner last year during visit; has things to work on but excited
    An MMA class wouldn't hurt to get the kid working with his hands and quick agility.

    # Browns OC Kyle Shanahan said it wasn't really a concern of his that some offensive assistants were hired before him.

    Daryl Ruiter ‏ @ RuiterWrongFAN 29s
    Shanahan said he wasn't the least bit worried about offensive ast. coaches being hired before him; was familiar w/ many guys who were hired

    Daryl Ruiter ‏ @ RuiterWrongFAN 15s
    "As a whole we tend to put a lot of stock in sacks but that doesn't tell the whole story" - Jim O'Neil (referencing Kruger)

    Daryl Ruiter ‏ @ RuiterWrongFAN 48s
    O'Neil added 4.5 sacks doesn't mean Kruger had a bad year # Browns

    Nate Ulrich ‏ @ NateUlrichABJ 37s
    # Browns ST Chris Tabor on surviving 2 HC changes: "I think it says the good Lord is watching over me."
    Tabor = 9 Lives.

    That's all, Shanahan gave some long anwers that didn't make it into the tweets apperantly or will be on later ones by reporters. The transcript will have some good stuff on the ZBS as he did go a little into detail in that regards. I'll post once I can get it somewhere.

    On having success with the pistol in Washington and whether it’s a staple in his philosophy:

    Shanahan: “The pistol is a few feet behind under center. There’s not much difference between the Pistol and taking the ball under center. What the pistol gives you is the threat of the zone-read. It doesn’t mean you have to run the zone-read out of it, but you can run the rest of your offense out of the pistol, where you can’t always in shotgun. So that’s the pistol’s advantage. The great thing for us in Washington when we first did the pistol is that we ran everything we had always done, what we’d done in Houston and what we’d done in Washington the years prior. It just happened to be that you could run the zone-read out of it also. I would love to find a way to run it under center, but I don’t know that way yet. So, if you’ve got a guy that can do it, and you want that threat, because it is a good play, it makes defenses account for another person on the field. If you’ve got a guy and he can be a threat in that, it’s a good thing to add to the offense.”



    On the zone-blocking scheme and what type of linemen and backs fit that philosophy:

    Shanahan: “Obviously, that’s what we’ve done, the zone scheme, and it gets a little overrated in terms of ‘you’ve got to have smaller guys and guys that can move.’ Really, you want to get the best O-linemen possible, guys who can come off the ball, guys who can run numbers to numbers. But you want those guys as big as possible while they still have some quickness that they can reach people and, really, create space for a back. You want a (back) who can press holes, who can get downhill, and always get good yards per carry. Not always looking for the home run, not a guy that has to get a 60-yarder to average 4 yards a carry. It’d be nice to keep feeding a guy, keep feeding a guy and his longest run in the game might be 10 yards, but still at the end of the game, he’s averaging 4.2 a carry. I just a consistent, consistent running game where you’re not getting in third-and-longs, always trying to be in a manageable down-and-distance where the defense can really never tee off on run or pass. It’s really tough to block those guys when they know what you’re doing. If they’ve always got to think about the run or think about the pass and play both, it gives you a huge advantage on offense.”
    Some from the Presser yesterday. Shanny came off very intelligent to me yesterday. Not going to start drinking the kool-aid yet on this new staff but they didn't look like idiots yesterday at all. Pettine and O'Neil have a great relationship and are on the same page about everything and Shanny and Pettine seem to have a good understanding of each other as well and what they want to do.
