London Fletcher: We dug ourselves a big hole
Sun, 4 Nov 2012|
I thank very much you're the quarterback of the Redskins defense London Fletcher obviously after a game like this you go into a bye week with with soul searching a little bit execution. In the end -- what would kills teams what what is the mindset in that locker room right now. You know we we definitely feel like we. Have dug ourselves -- pick on me theatre at six at this time this point this season. He got a win out -- about it in the day we just didn't make enough plays. Penalties was you know a huge factor that they had to wait far too many penalties. In those definitely -- yourself. The temerity see how bad you really want to play the rest season. -- You know I think you have to get away float for a little bit just kind of mentally refreshed if you think about it you know this -- ninth game of the season. I weeks of pre season mean that's that's fourteen weeks with you when you've been going -- a grind it. You need to kind of refreshed a little with little bit when you come back you have to be focused on when the next game get the Philadelphia Eagles.
One of the best teams have leadership in the locker. And I'm not ask you to point your finger to anybody or from a general standpoint of leadership. How does that accomplish how do you take guys that might not be performing up to the level of their talent and as a team leader get them snapped at the position.
You know what I think we have great leadership on our team especially this year we knew we had guys who lead by example and also some vocal leaders as well. You know I did today. You and everybody knows when they're not playing up to present their potential. You know you look at the -- be Harding itself once they get the leader if you wanna go to somebody else and say something -- them. To be do doing something none better you've got to make sure you're doing it yourself you know because this guy as Arnold listened to you if you -- perform well yourself.
Look the look at them today it looked like Spain first AF. They were they -- their options he was making some daughters with the second and it didn't make as many yards was -- any kind of particular adjustment at half time. What do they show you anything different at first half.
Yet they they did you know the the first time they came out they pulled up -- for us at tackle for a -- guard. Possibly out there run a zone option plays partisan we'll do we make some adjustments to that. In the second half was able to play that that don't read option play a lot better. You know so it was it was definitely make some adjustments on silent also at halftime.
As Trevor said leadership. Leader comes up and talks to us on a cold night after a tough loss like that they're appreciative of the -- guys like you.
