As a die-hard Washington Redskins fan and sportswriter, I really hate to write an article after a loss, especially after losing our first two regular season games and being 0 and 2. I really hate losing to what I see as an inferior team as we did against the Cowboys. I know our team has the potential be the highest scoring team in the NFL. We simply underachieved in both our loses on both sides of the ball.
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.
