WP: Redskins’ Ryan Kerrigan navigates the complexities of the modern NFL


Recommended Posts


Three Fridays ago, indecipherable hieroglyphics littered the whiteboards that cover the walls of the defensive meeting room at Redskins Park, non sequiturs scattered everywhere – “gold” and “rip” and “liz” and “lamb.” The season hadn’t yet started.

All this apparent confusion — 21 different coverages and 38 different blitzes, and that’s just in the Washington Redskins’ “sub” package, used mostly on third downs — had to be drilled and distilled by all 25 defensive players, from 14-year veteran London Fletcher to one rookie, a starter from the day he walked in the building. Never mind that he wasn’t a month past his 23rd birthday

My goodness there's a lot of work required :yikes:

Kerrakpo will be terrorizing offenses for the next decade+ :fingersx: :point2sky
