WP: Defense Outperforms Offense in Scrimmage vs. Baltimore
Washington Redskins linebacker Marcus Washington sprinted toward the quarterback on a blitz. He slowed down in time to avoid contact with Kyle Boller as Baltimore Ravens Coach Brian Billick, wearing a straw hat, blew the play dead. Under scrimmage rules, defenders weren't allowed to hit quarterbacks, and the onus was on the head coach to halt play when defenders had a clear path to the quarterback.
