Jack Del Rio Presser: “We’ve got a good group, we’re doing some good things”

Jack Del Rio and players spoke to the media after today’s practice

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Washington Football Team Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Washington Football Team Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio talked to reporters and said there are opportunities for the defense to get better. They need to get better on third down and in the red zone. The return of DB Kendall Fuller has led to several other players on the defense having their playing time reduced. Fuller had his first 2 interception game last week against Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. Tackling is still an issue for this team, but Del Rio declined to call any individual players out.

Jonathan was next up at the Zoom mic. He said the Alex Smith is a pro’s pro and he would have been more surprised if he didn’t come back from what should have been a career-ending injury. Allen said Smith is ready to take a hit, and that he wouldn’t think twice about hitting him in a game if they were on different teams. Football is a dangerous sport and everyone knows the risks.

Jonathan Allen once again stated how much he hates losing, which he says every time he talks to the media. He doesn't give a damn what the offense does, because the defense still needs to do their job at a high level.

J.D. McKissic goes with the flow and follows the coach's lead. McKissic said the offense wasn’t too hard for him to study. It all comes down to studying the playbook. He can always be better and doesn’t feel like he has mastered it, but he does feel comfortable in the system.
