But as the weeks went by, the Redskins knew those plays might dry up.] You have to know what teams are going to give you, ... and you can't just sit back and beat them with the Hawaiian punch every week.

We have a pretty good running game. I don't think [Orton] is going to have to win every game. Hopefully we put him in situations that are favorable.

We had a couple of dropped balls but it was the first away game. The fans were going crazy and, I'm not going to lie, I was rattled a little bit. At first when we tried to stretch it out, we had a couple of drops. Every ball Drew threw, Drew was on point. It was just about catching the ball.
