"Armstrong hasn’t been consistent off bump coverage," Shanahan said. "For him to get more time you have to beat bump coverage. If you can’t beat bump coverage in the [NFL], then you start coaching."

Doc Walker: "I see a guy struggling, indecisive. I felt today that he was not the best option to help us win. I think Rex Grossman might have given us a chance to win the ballgame. That’s how I feel, it’s what I saw."

"I mean, [being able to give feedback to coaches] is probably not as much as you would like, you know what I mean?" he said. "Like, I made the statement to my coaches, I’ve been in this league for eight years. I’ve been to four Pro Bowls. I’ve seen a lot. I kind of know what’s going on, I kind of know how to prepare, I know what to expect, and I would like to be able to go in and say hey, let’s do this, let’s do that. But that’s not my role here, you know what I mean, that’s not what they want. They want me to go out there, play what they say and keep it moving."

DeAngelo Hall on the Redskins offense - DC Sports Bog - The Washington Post
"It’s almost like your little brother. Obviously you can’t go beat up an 8-year old. If you’re 15 years old, all you can do is keep training your little brother — hey, this is what we need to do, dude will come at you, throw your hands up, duck and weave, bob and weave, throw this punch, keep attacking em — but it ain’t much more we can do. We can’t, defensively, go out there and play offense.
