Great news from Ron Rivera today, his final cancer treatment is on Monday! He had 35 treatments scheduled, and it involved chemotherapy and proton therapy. Rivera admits that the fatigue was like having a 300 lb gorilla on his back. It has affected his schedule, and he is not able to pull all-nighters.

Rivera is a big fan of Kendall Fuller. His position was “a little up in the air” when Washington first signed him. Rivera described Fuller as a savvy outside corner, a quick nickel corner and a ballhawk of a safety.

Rivera breaks the season into quarters. He’s excited to see how the next two games go, they are both division games. Washington’s first quarter finished 1-3, and their second quarter stands at 0-2. Rivera is still holding out hope for the 2020 season due to the terrible records of every team in the division.

Head Coach Ron Rivera met with the media ahead of the upcoming Week 7⃣ matchup.

Defensive backs coach Chris Harris got a chance to talk to reporters today. He said Kendall Fuller is a very cerebral player. and understands the game schematically. He knows how to make a play on the ball when it’s up in the air. Harris also called him a jack of all trades who is thriving at outside corner right now.

The entire secondary needs to pay attention to detail and chip in every week. Landon Collins has been “OK”. Deshazor Everett has an aggressive style and is ready, shoot, aim. Eye discipline has to improve for the team.
