View Full Version : STLtoday:Shanahan II

Preseason football games are often categorized as dress rehearsals for the real thing. For the Rams, tonight's exhibition game against visiting Houston takes that premise a step further.

It will truly be a dress rehearsal for the Sept. 10 regular-season opener against Denver. Gary Kubiak, the Texans' new head coach, is a Mike Shanahan protégé who spent the previous 11 seasons as Shanahan's offensive coordinator in Denver.

A lot of the things that Denver likes to do, particularly on offense, are being installed by Kubiak in Houston. So much so that some at Rams Park have taken to calling Kubiak "Shanahan II."
