CSN Washington dot com. Sees champion who watched this is. The com I talked to coach featured the state. Coach we appreciate it. On. There. There are. Some comments while were in the obviously all. Roberts is. Commercial. Courses. Opening. Clemson commercially and hurt pretty good but. And I saw doctor Andrews comments and it's always good that the doctor feels very optimist or is that I know we've been working extremely hard. And that's what Robert does you know you can do everything he can that be ready. You know -- -- -- everything goes well. We saw Robert Super Bowl and then he was moving along nicely and of course he was named the AP. NFL offensive rookie of the year and kudos to him of that is -- the coaches talked to him since he's back there in town and rehab. Yeah I did talked a runner -- Super Bowl country get back and and rightfully so immediately heck of -- year people forget exactly what -- he did it take a look at. Yeah his production because turnovers and company American corporate -- and you wanna run a football team we have fourteen turnovers for the year and that's unheard of that -- -- football game. And you know we've always done passing in the morning game we know Ali's played in the fourth quarter situations it. Earlier great here for a young guy come and play the way. You know I asked Robert you know and he knows that -- -- -- criticism as the now. His injury came down and the doctor has been criticized everybody's been criticized the situation but in hindsight would give them anything they're. I think as a coach what you have to do this you evaluate people. And number one you listen to the doctors you know they tell you what they think it would. The recommendation is from here you go by the doctors know there -- -- -- what they do. And then you go boy your quarterback as well so you -- these people I thought Robert. Had earned a right to. Human that this. He is little or is -- -- but you know that's an ongoing product processes. Here you get older you kind of get a feel for guys don't sometimes. You made treated differently and all depends on the guy. If you could know people who could help and get to know better and better and that -- make decisions as well as doctors. Did he surprise you do in the course of the year on me he displayed tremendous football I mean there's so many islands for the years just those. Offense all the games they know that the Redskins played this year that everything about his games prior to this year. Why can't say it surprised me but you never know you have a guy coming out of college there's never been a pro system on the -- -- on a different type of system and held. And to make that transition. You know there's a growing up usually takes two or three years he would have transition. Which is quite than usual. Does take time but we take a look at what he did. You know for every time the ball was that he was most productive -- national football. That doesn't happen very often as a rookie and you don't turn laughable when football game. Lot of pressure on me and was extremely well. Really young guy but as I got to know what his maturity level to be higher than his age would you agree that. Other no question he's you know he's -- focus you know he's. He's got a great mindset he's he's very mature. At the same time you don't know which you don't know it takes time it doesn't happen over. Everybody thinks you know when you come as a rookie you don't know Robertson back 23 years from now -- look back and take a while. This you know I did accomplish a lot that -- season even though and ended. When you know when an ACL. And everybody's very disappointed. But you know he's you know he's tough he's a worker welcome back from the knee injury and hopefully b.'s what is that. He knew it everybody -- team and FC east champions and don't forget about that now. Free agency coming up on March the twelfth and some very difficult decisions for the Redskins and and talk about. What I consider. Very unfair. These salary cap penalties but. As free agency is almost upon us what you grinding on the numbers because the numbers don't tell that story let's be honest. Well. It is a very tough situation. I can't speak speak about a very honestly because we've got some big -- here over the next couple weeks. That we have to go through with the National Football League. And no good more -- be -- bunker that went pretty good team has hit but you have to have plans for all situations and that's tore -- right now you gotta have a game plan we do have a game plan for much different scenario. And all pale by march 12. CSN Washington dot com.
