In the wake of Josh Norman sitting down as a healthy scratch against the Detroit Lions, some comments from Washington Redskins cornerback Quinton Dunbar look pretty interesting.
The Norman era in Washington seems to be over but the story of it is just getting started.
Earlier this week, Dunbar had commented on the need for his secondary to improve with the basics, per Jacob Steinberg of Redskins.com:
“At some point, as a grown man in a professional football league, you’ve got to get it together. As a group — not just singling anyone out, but everybody as a whole — you’ve got to get better at communicating and taking pride in wanting to communicate.”
Dunbar, along with Norman and Fabian Moreau, were the secondary players benched near the end of a loss to the New York Jets recently.
So while it seems simple enough to point the finger at Dunbar, by his own admission the entire unit has had some serious problems.
Luckily for Dunbar and his unit, a game against the Detroit Lions means facing off against backup passer Jeff Driskel. If the unit is going to improve, now is the time.
