Daily Slop: RIP Clyde Shugart

(Stays professional and takes the high road)

Matty: You clearly didn't perform up to your usual standards last season in Washington. What do you attribute your "un-JT-like" 2008 to? Was it your injury? Was it the system or your role in the system? Or wasn't something else altogether?

Jason: "Well, I really don’t believe in making excuses, so let me start with that. Mr. Snyder and the Redskins paid me a lot of money to perform at a high level and regardless of the circumstances it was my job to deliver. There were, however, some contributing factors because it’s never just one thing that leads to a player’s success or struggles. I did get hurt and had to deal with two in-season surgeries, which really presented a challenge, especially since I had gone so long without missing a game. As for the system, a lot of teams have had a lot of success running a system similar to what the Redskins run, so I can’t be critical of it. Having said that, I am excited to be playing in the system we are running here in Miami."
