Two weeks ago tonight, Washington obliterated Green Bay to move to 6-3-1. Since then, Washington has lost at Dallas and now at Arizona and coach Jay Gruden isn’t happy about it.
Via Mike Jones of the Washington Post, Gruden could be heard yelling at the team after the 31-23 loss to the Cardinals. Gruden specifically was complaining that the team hadn’t given its all during the week.
The loss, which has dropped Washington to 6-5-1, will make it harder to get back to the postseason. Paraphrasing Jim Mora’s epic rant from 15 years ago, Gruden told reporters, “There’s no talk about the playoffs. We’re just trying to win the next game.”
The next game will be at Philadelphia, followed by a home game againt the Panthers, a trip to Chicago, and a regular-season finale vs. the Giants.
