Clearly, the blocking schemes need to be reassessed this week after the Redskins pass protection yielded nine sacks yesterday. The Redskins have lost three of their best blockers in Kory Lichtensteiger, Tim Hightower and Chris Cooley, and the absence of left tackle Trent Williams was felt especially hard yesterday.
But Beck didn’t accept any ready-made excuses, and said that they team needs to adjust and get better.
“That’s just part of the NFL,” he said. “Because it’s a long season, injuries do happen. The good teams find a way to win, regardless of who steps in. That’s our plan: to be the good team. That’s our plan, to just continually get better so we can insert whoever’s next up, and continue to play well.”
As the Redskins finally come home to take on the 49ers, Beck said his team was aware of the process that it would take to reverse the results of recent weeks.
“You never wanna lose a game, and you never wanna lose back-to-back games, and so forth,” he said. “So this will definitely be a week for us to get as much as we can out of the game tape, get the most we can out of practice, and take that next step forward.”
