WASHINGTON — One of the biggest criticisms of the Redskins last season, that they lacked an ability to make in-game adjustments, has carried over into 2016.
On defense, a failure to adjust would seemingly fall on the shoulders of coordinator Joe Barry, and the Redskins again failed to make the necessary adjustments in their 27-23 loss Sunday to the Cowboys.
Redskins defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois spoke to those apparent lack of adjustments after the game, saying the problem stems from last season and has persisted.
“If we actually would have adjust and seen what they were doing quick enough, we would have had it,” Francois said, via Ben Standig. “And I just feel like the teams that, even from the Packers from last year, every team that sees us adjusts. Every team that adjusts to us, we don’t adjust to them.”
“Every team we play against, it just feels like they see something and then they pounce on it, and they keep doing it,” he said. “And it feels like we’re just not responding to it.”
After an offseason filled with so much promise coming off an unexpected division title in 2015, at 0-2, the Redskins’ season is suddenly now teetering on the brink of disaster.
