A attempting season for the Washington Redskins has given design to in-condominium criticism.
Security D.J. Swearinger had some pointed objections for defensive coordinator Greg Manusky after Saturday’s 25-sixteen loss to the Tennessee Titans. Among his main complaints became the group’s command of man-to-man protection when backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert entered the game for Marcus Mariota, who left with a stinger and did not return.
“We must peaceable have blowed them out,” Swearinger acknowledged, in step with ESPN. “If I’m the D-coordinator, I’m calling zone every time on 0.33 down which ability that of you bought a backup quarterback. Develop him beat us.
“We’re taking half in a backup quarterback. Why would you set up us in man to man? We are our most keen on protection after we explore on the quarterback.”
Swearinger particularly took field with one 0.33-down play whereby cornerback Fabian Moreau became known as for maintaining against Titans huge receiver Taywan Taylor, who became remoted on the left facet of the field, on what would have been an incompletion if not for the penalty.
“Man, it’s three by one (receiver characteristic). You might possibly well presumably effectively be going backside every time,” Swearinger acknowledged. “A kindergarten quarterback can know that. That is my frustration good now, canine. We performed a hell of a sport.”
Gabbert carried out seven of Eleven passes for one zero one yards and a landing. Washington held a slim wait on in full yardage (292 to 291) and pressured two turnovers while committing none..
Swearinger’s feedback have been simply basically the most modern flare-up for the Redskins after the loss. Cornerback Josh Norman threw his helmet at Titans offensive address Taylor Lewan following the game in a heated dissimilarity. Lewan accused Norman of attempting to injure working support Derrick Henry slack in the competition.
Washington has now misplaced five of its final six games. At 7-Eight, the Redskins are peaceable alive in the playoff proceed, however their chance is remote.
“I recount my frustrations each single time I attain off the field,” Swearinger acknowledged. “I’m a extremely keen soccer participant. I potentially glance more movie than the coaches. … I’m attempting to give my insight however it would not work.”
