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.
When Kirk Cousins lead our Redskins to a “come from behind” victory over the favored Philadelphia Eagles, he had to throw for almost 300 yards with one touchdown and zero interceptions. He also rushed for a one yard unplanned touchdown. The muddy ball squirted out like a greased tree frog but Kirk alertly recovered it, then drove his body hard into the line and crossed the goal line for the touchdown.
One of the major problems our team had last season and previous seasons is our Oline had injuries, there was not enough depth. and we probably needed better players in some positions of the Oline. In my view the only one that impressed me last season consistently was Trent Williams, our Pro Bowl Left Tackle. I believe nearly everyone would agree that our Oline needs to be addressed.
Offensive Line Coach Bill Callahan will be in charge of the Redskins running game this season. He comes to us from the Dallas Cowboys, who had the best running game in the league last season. What I like is the fact that Bill Callahan has headcoaching experience so he sees the big picture.
