Fumbles not recovered

While we had some turnovers in the form of interceptions, we also failed at recovering balls dropped by the other team. There were probably 2 or 3 times when the other team fumbled and we did not recover. One time, the QB dropped the ball in a clear fumble and our player was oblivious to it. Its almost a mindset we have. Its as though we do not expect fumbles or do not expect to recover them. We have to have the worst record in the league at recovering fumbles. How do you coach that?

Its easy to say the tackle is more important and that should be the focus. That goes without saying. But, The Redskins have only recovered 17% of the fumbles they caused on defense. The league average is 49% and the leaders recover almost 70% of all fumbles caused. This is not a one game phenomenon. It happens every game. week in and week out. Somehing about how this team plays, is causing this trend. Its as though they play aggressive at all the wrong times and too conservative when aggression is needed.
