With the game on the line and trailing by two points inside of a minute, the Redskins drive stalled, as it had on several occasions last night. While some members of the media questioned the playcall in the post-game press conference, Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman defended the offensive scheme.
“Our offense is based on some passing that, in the West Coast-type of plays that we were running–y’know, long hand-offs, screens–those are passes, but they’re pretty much runs,” he explained. “So your stats might be a little skewed as far as that’s concerned. I dunno, you’ve got to look at it from a play-callers perspective.”
As far as one-for-three in the redzone, including one-of-two in goal-to-go situations, Grossman made no bones about his irritation with the field goals.
“I don’t know if you want me to go on and on about it,” he began.
Please do go on and on, Rex.
“We need to finish those drives and not kick field goals,” he said with emphatic arm motions. “We’ll work on it. We were good the first game, the second game it was closer than it needed to be for that reason, and obviously we lost because of that this week. We’re obviously moving the ball well, and we need to finish those drives, and maybe we can put a team away earlier.”
