With 22 catches for 290 yards through four games, Redskins receiver Santana Moss is on pace to have one of his best NFL seasons. But he says the Redskins’ offense still has plenty of room for improvement.
“We, as an offense, are not comfortable with everything yet,” Moss said, per Mike Jones of TBD.com. “People look at it as, ‘OK, you got Donovan [McNabb], you got this new offense, but why aren’t we seeing more from the offense?’ Because we’re still learning. We’re still trying to get in that zone where we know everything from A to Z without having to think about it, and it takes time and the only way you can learn it is by playing. . . . Every week is a work in progress, like on the job training type of thing.”
Moss has combined for 16 catches and 213 yards in the two games the Redskins lost, but just six catches and 77 yards in the two games the Redskins won. McNabb says the Redskins are going to be better off if they do more on the ground and less through the air.
“We just don’t want to come in and be an air-it-out-throw-40-to-50-times-a-game, although I wouldn’t mind,” McNabb said. “But the thing about it is, we’re working to establish that run because we know that you can do so much off of the run. If it calls for us to throw 15 times and we win, then that’s all that matters to me.”
