In the loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night a few weeks ago, the Redskins ran the football 15 of 20 first downs.
You read that right: 15 of 20.
Even noobs in Madden aren’t that predictable or conservative in their playcalling. The Redskins lost a game they should have never even been in with that lousy Matt Cassell led team. Here’s a very telling little exchange at the end of this NFL Films “Sound FX” segment, where Kirk admits they had kept things simple for a while, so he could get more confident in the offense.
Note too, how the young McVay – a bright football mind, according to pretty much everyone – admits that he’s “still learning.” For those of us who follow this team deeply, this one piece of audio is worth almost a month of speculation. I’m lucky I caught it this morning.
Watch it, Skins fans, and keep it mind as we discuss this team going forward.
