DJ Swearinger's post game remarks

DJ Swearinger's comments mark the 4th time in 2 seasons that he's called the Redskins out for bad practice/focus. Assuming DJ's right, indictment of Jay Gruden that 1) this is a problem in Yr 5 and 2 DJ keeps talking & nothing is improving & 3 DJ feels comfortable saying this stuff publicly to begin with.....

He also criticized the secondary for bad preparation, missing tackles, and not rising to the occasion whenever they face a good passing attack...and lastly he sighted guys in the locker room laughing after two weeks straight after losing...he didn't say any names....but I have a feeling he was talking about Norman, Dunbar, and Moreau.....

Re: DJ Swearinger's post game remarks

I'm kinda disappointed in DJ for speaking out about it to the public, but I'm not surprised by it because DJ loves to talk..

I honestly doubt Dunbar was one of those players who weren't well prepared. Dunbar worked hard to transitioned from WR to CB, and it wouldn't make sense for Dunbar to work hard and then doesn't pay attention to the game. Norman, I doubt it based on his work ethics but then things change throughout time.. I have no idea about Moreau.. When I first saw DJ's comment, my first thought is Clinton-Dix.. There were some rumors about his lack of work ethics, hence the reason why Packers were willing to let him go.

He didn't specifically say Dunbar, I think we're just speculating.

Was Dunbar unprepared or hobbled?

His stride looked labored to me and like he shouldn't have been in the game.

If players are unprepared then itís up to the coaches to get them prepared or play someone else.

I was responding to Redskins4ever's post. DJ didn't name names when he spoke about the issue.

I think unfortunately one of the staples of a Jay Gruden led football team, is for the players to show up completely unprepared at the worst times.

Re: DJ Swearinger's post game remarks

I didn't think he was calling out the coaches as much as he was calling out his teammates for not preparing well enough.

Exactly. We have one of the most experienced secondaries in the league on paper.

DJ, HHCD, JN. If you throw Mason and Zach in there, nobody should be confused at this point.

The busted coverages from mental mistakes is stupid and lazy.

Seriously, what is an assistant coach supposed to say to those guys?

"Study harder!"

Unprofessional and unacceptable.

I do hope Norman's ballet show goes well though.

He can let the player ride the pine on game days, playing time needs to be earned through hard work mentally and physically. It seems a lot of professional athletes lack discipline and focus, a good coach won't tolerate a lack of either.

This! If there are no consequences for being lazy and not producing Guys like Doctson know they are getting a free lunch and there is no urgency to improve.

Dunbar should not have been playing.....or he should have been matching up with Gallup....where was Stroman or Johnson...? Eirher of them could have played in place of Dunbar.....and Norman should have been matching up the whole game on Amari Cooper...these mishaps are on the coaches....

Ain't that the truth! This is the exact reason why Gruden is a below subpar .500 head coach and why he has struggled like hell to get to .500 for his career....

I'm personally glad DJ spoke. Calls it like he sees it.

Re: DJ Swearinger's post game remarks

No Playoffs=New Coach. This team needs a real fresh start. Our offense is old and sucks. Unfortunately, the goal of this organization has been to be relevant, rather than good. Not sure if that'll change. Our .500 record dating back years is evidence of that. Getting an old ass QB is evidence of that.
