Redskins Key Players On The Bench During Bengals Game

From: Washington Times

As the Redskins’ once-sure playoff hopes slipped away Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium, the players the team selected first in the 2005 and 2006 drafts, cornerback Carlos Rogers and linebacker Rocky McIntosh, were mostly spectators.

The players were held out for what defensive coordinator Greg Blache called “totally different” reasons, but the result was that two of the players who started the first 13 games for Washington’s defense were basically nonfactors in the most critical minutes of a season that now is all but lost after Sunday’s 20-13 defeat. Blache benched McIntosh at halftime for poor play and replaced him with journeyman Alfred Fincher, who had never played so many snaps in his four seasons as a special teamer.

    i don’t beleive Blache is a good defensive coordinator, you don’t bench these guys that had a great part in your 6-2 run.the reason the defense didn’t hol up in the games they lost was because Blache don’t know how to come up with blizt packages .
