[Nonetheless, the Redskins will focus on acquiring players through free agency because of the uncertainty of the draft, to be held in late April.] We would like to solve everything that we could on our football team in free agency, ... That way you go into the draft and you're freewheeling.

I don't think you rule anything out when you go into a draft, especially if you think there's someone there who you think you can go get. Would you be willing to trade or make a move? I don't think we're afraid to do that--last year we did it. And I wouldn't rule something like that out.

We've had balls on the ground, ... The quarterback threw about three of them we should have got our hands and should have picked off. It's just one of those things where we haven't been able to get them. I don't think it's anything [opposing teams] are doing, it's just that we haven't been able to come up with turnovers.

Whatever your business is, we all have a drama going on in our own lives. We're all unhappy about something. You have sickness, marital problems, a myriad of things going wrong in everybody's life. You have to deal with those things right away. You have to get their full concentration on football. I'd like to be able to communicate even more with my players when things aren't going bad, but it's just like everything else in life. The problems take over, and you wind up chasing the problems. I'd say handling people is the most important thing you do as a coach. Dealing with people, really, is all football is.

It's kind of like being the athletic director in college. They don't care; they're just trying to go for the money and the coach is like, 'Wait a second, I need to get me a couple of [teams] on here that I can get tuned up with,'

[Joe Gibbs, the Redskins' coach and president, said last week that not re-signing Pierce was a mistake.] I learned a lesson from it, ... And I don't intend to repeat it in the future. So, I would say that Antonio has our respect, certainly.

Joe Gibbs
We'd had three tough losses in a row and everybody was down. I think our players said to themselves: 'Our backs are up against the wall and we've got no other option other than just to win, and if we lose another game we're probably out.' So they kind of took it as this last stand, and it was that way every week . . .somehow we found a way to win those last five.

We're one of the aggressive teams in the league when it comes to signing free agents. That's the way we want to be. ... If we weren't aggressive over the last couple years, we wouldn't have people like Phillip Daniels, Cornelius Griffin and Marcus Washington.

If that took place, we understand the penalties. We understand somebody being taken out of the game. Sean is so valuable to us. I had a long talk with him afterward, and he understands that. He's all football. He wants to play. He's one of our leaders. He's had an outstanding year. He's very valuable to us. We can't afford to lose somebody like that.

Right now, everybody is nervous. I would sure hate to see us go into free agency without (a new CBA) done. The other thing I'm hoping for is the date to be extended.

I think we all realized what was at stake. We had talked about it all week, the big ballgame for us and for them there was a lot at stake. There was a lot riding on it and we didn't play well. I think we take a long hard look at ourselves, and it certainly starts with me.

It will allow me to focus on things where I can help the football team. It's tough when you're in meetings and the coaches are waiting on you. I can already see that we're farther down the road on some things by doing what we're doing.

Ethan's been around so long, it's a great credit to him. He might be as good a long-snapper as we've ever had. I put a lot of stock in snapping, and we pay him a lot of money to snap the ball.

We always try to get it to him, and he's a major portion of our game plan. He had only two catches last week [for 73 yards], but they were big plays. He's one of the keys for us, and we work hard to get him the ball.
