Bill Belichick Sounds Very Worried About The Redskins And Their ‘Very Well Designed’ Offense
Nobody does pressers quite like Bill Belichick and nobody is a bigger football guy than the 67-year-old legend. He’s also the king of coach speak, especially when it comes to the media asking him bland questions about the Patriots’ upcoming game.
The 4-0 Pats visit the 0-4 Redskins on Sunday and he spoke to the media about the matchup on Tuesday afternoon and gave us some classic Belichick coach speak.
Belichick can’t just come out and say ‘yeah, Washington is atrocious and I’m more worried about what I’m having for lunch today than their sorry asses,’ but he pulled these answers straight out of the coach speak textbook.
Then again, maybe he doesn’t care, because the Redskins have only played two quarterbacks this year, Case Keenum and Dwayne Haskins, not three like Belichick suggested. Keenum has started each game this season, but Haskins took over during their blowout loss to the Giants last weekend.
The Redskins are one of four teams sitting at 0-4 this season and to say things have been bad in Washington would be an understatement.
The ‘Skins rank 28th in total offense this season averaging 296.3 yards per game, just 186 yards behind the league-leading Ravens’ offense. The defense has been better than the offense however as they come in at No. 27 in the league; huge improvement on that side of the ball.
The Redskins are bad at football and nothing about them is ‘well designed’ like Belichick said.
Keenum is clicking at a 68.1% completion rate with seven touchdowns and four picks on the year while Haskins, who has barely played a half this regular season, has three picks and two sacks to his name.
But hey, Belichick says the Redskins have looked good so the Redskins have looked good. Try finding one person in New England that will disagree with that statement after those words came out of the greatest to ever hold a clipboard.
Washington is so good that they’re 15 point underdogs at home on Sunday.
