Washington coordinator: “We’ll sure beat the crap out of a lot of people”


Every new defensive coordinator walks into a new job and proceeds to tell the locals how they’re going to be an aggressive, attacking defense.

Perhaps Washington’s Greg Manusky is taking it literally.

Manusky got animated explaining how he planned to do that with Liz Clarke of the Washington Post, explaining in vivid detail what they hoped to accomplish.

Laughing as he said it, Manusky declared: “We might not win a game, but we’ll sure beat the crap out of a lot of people!”

Washington ranked 28th in the league in defense last year, hence the coaching change. But there was also a mild influx of talent for Manusky to work with, bringing in Pro Bowl linebacker Zach Brown and the first three picks in their draft came there, with Alabama defensive tackle Jonathan Allen, linebacker Ryan Anderson and UCLA cornerback Fabian Moreau joining the fray.

“The players that are in that room that we have, we have to win with ‘em,” Manusky said. “And we will win with ‘em.”

There’s also the potential for Junior Galette coming back from a streak of Achilles injuries, who could add another aggressive player to the mix (so long as we’re just talking football and he doesn’t take Manusky’s instructions literally).

    They also added DJ Swearinger to an awful secondary.

    Most coaches are concerned about winning and having players do their job not trying to become the next big mouth Rex Ryan.

    Since D Hall is going on the PUP list before the season starts, that will give the rookie safety they pickup in the draft a chance to shine and with Su Craven’s moving permantely over to the single safety spot with DJ Swearinger also in the mix, the Redskins should have a good or at least better DB backfield than they did last season. However, Manusky has to stop shooting off at the mouth saying sheet like; “we might not win a game but……”

    A great match, he’s as dumb as his players

    Manusky sounds like he’s working from the Rex Ryan PR guide.

    Talk is cheap, especially in May.

    Is it just me, or does every defensive coordinator say this every spring? That said, I’m more excited for the Redskins defense this season than I’ve been in a decade.

    Thats what separates the losers from the winners. Winners win, and beat the crap out of you.
    Losers lose, and take solace in thinking they are tough.
    Glad he’s not a coach on my team.

    Are you available to be booked for Troy Vincent’s birthday party?

    Our defense looks much improved on paper at least, from last year. Our best FA and draft picks went to obvious holes in the D.
    Hail to the Redskins!

    Getting tougher and faster.

    If you want canned responses and cliches football tops it all more than any sport, quite boring. No, very boring.

    The reporter Liz Clarke who is a very good reporter, was trying to get him to give a win prediction, he laughed and said we might not win a game. Which is coach speak for I’m not falling into that trap. Oh yeah, REDSKINS

    “We might not win a game.” Then he says:
    “We will win with them (players).”

    Which one is it coach? Lol
