Our Washington Redskins defeated the Cleveland Browns by the score of 31 to 20. It’s “Victory Monday”. The game was closer than the score would indicate. The First Quarter was “owned” by the Redskins. The offense was sharp, two long drives resulting in touchdown passes by Captain Kirk Cousins, who was 10 of 11 passes and commanded a balanced attack with Matt Jones running the ball almost 50 percent ot the successful touchdown drives. It appeared the Redskins were on their way to a rout over the Cleveland Browns.
Of the four preseason games this one will probably be the most valuable to our starting players and to our coaching staff. I believe we will our starters at least the first half before coaches start “experimenting, trying different packages, and backup players. Hopefully we will see our 2016 Washington Redskins play a penalty-free game dominating the line of scrimmage and scoring points. Also, a top secondary and a powerful front 7 defense is desirable.
Vernon Davis: “I’m very excited, I have never played with this much talent on one defense before.”
David Bruton: “I did not come here to be mediocre – I came here to be great!”
DeAngelo Hall on switching from cornerback to safety: “It has me rejuvenated, focused, excited!”
General Manager Scot McCloughan knows defense wins championship as he built top defenses with the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks. He’s watching closely and will not be satisfied with a 24th ranked defense.
