We Will Get BetterWritten by Darrel Young Tuesday November 22 2011
These past few weeks have been very frustrating. We have been so close but haven't been able to finish. We have the talent among the players, knowledge among the coaches, and the system has worked under coach Shanahan.
Losing a division game to the Cowboys was more than just a loss. The meaning and feeling behind that game is far more than just a football game. It is one of the oldest rivalries and most historical rivalries in the game of football.
In the end they won, but we played hard. We did something that we haven't done in weeks, and that was execute on offense. We were able to score a first quarter touchdown, which is something we haven't done since week 4 versus the St. Louis Rams. The running game hasn't been what it needs to be and I need to get better blocking in the running game to open up some holes for the backs to run through. Redskins nation, I promise we will get better, we just need a chance.
We travel to Seattle this weekend to play the Seahawks. We are looking to pick up this win and start our journey to going 9-7 on the season. I feel very comfortable about where this team is going and where we will end up. We have some ball players and guys who want to win.
My game ball for the Dallas game goes to three players: Rex Grossman, who played a good enough game for us to win. Daunte Stallworth for coming back after being cut the week before and catching a big touchdown pass, and Jabar Gaffney who had 7 catches for 115 yards.
We need to keep progressing as an offense. A wise man once told me that the veterans will always show up to play. It's about the younger guys. This is a young football team and we will get better.
Quote for the Week: "Do not follow where the path may lead us, yet go where there is no path, but leave a trail"
Happy Thanksgiving to all...
