They're hot. They go out there and play hard and you can tell they really love the game. They've improved on catching those deep balls and a lot of them are getting good coverage and beating guys off the ball.
You play your defense around the block. You don't play your defense over the block or right behind the block normally, and they were hitting balls over us and right behind the block. Our defense wasn't in the right spots.
He got a taste of the grass on the other side. And I don't necessarily say the grass wasn't greener. But sometimes you've got to go back home. It's kind of funny. He's the same wide receiver he was when he caught 90-plus balls in Buffalo.
[Cultivating that diversity in the passing attack was mandatory. Moss entered the game with more than twice as many receiving yards as anyone else on the roster, catching 10 balls of 30 yards or more in the first six games, equaling Washington's entire output from 2004. 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. Rookies tend to struggle because sometimes they're not afraid to throw certain balls that they shouldn't throw. Sometimes that's a good thing, sometimes it's not.
I saw a doctor and got some stuff, and today I didn't really hit many balls on the range. I kind of just screwed around. I love the course, and I figured no matter how bad I felt I could get around and have a decent score.
They played a physical game against us with a lot of long balls. It is our responsibility to get the ball down. Perhaps at the moment we are a little bit scared to hold the ball and we kick it long as well. That is not our way and our strength.
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.
Everybody knew what to do. We got second balls well and never let them escape. We didn't give a chance away. We deserved to win. They are getting back in shape now. We still have to see the players grow and improve.
After the first day, he went back over to the range and hit balls. Then he worked on his short game and bunkers and he was putting until dark. There were a lot of kids there, but he was the last one to leave. He just loves the game.
It always comes down to pitching and defense. We hit some balls good but right at some people. The three-run inning just sort of took us out of it. In the end, it's a game we didn't win and the big offense is going to have to show up tomorrow.
