Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden spoke to the media after the teams 23-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens and was asked if he was concerned about how the offense performed in the game? Here’s what Gruden had to say:
Gruden is sending the right message in staying positive. No concrete conclusions can be drawn from this game and he and his staff will do well by going off of what the team has done all offseason. Sometimes bad performances can happen. And who knows? If one or two things go differently in that game then the outcome and the performance on offense may have been different.
“I’m not concerned right now. They’ve done enough that I’ve seen that I have enough positives to draw from not just the first half of a football game. Obviously we’re in the third preseason game, on the road in a short week you would like to have some positive things going into the regular season. It didn’t happen.
Like I said it’s a short week, you’re going against Baltimore on the road and not a lot of good things happened for our offense. But we’re not going to panic and abort ship. We’re going to keep working and get better and get ready for Houston. But I feel good about the starters we have and some of the backups played well again, so that’s exciting. We feel good about our depth, we just got to execute when it counts.”
