“It’s an important game,” Fletcher said Wednesday. “It’s a game where it’s as close to being a must-win as you can get, just because of the situation we’re in. We’re 0-2. The sense of urgency has to be there just because of what our situation is. That’s the reality.”
Fletcher called the team’s start to the season “very surprising and disappointing in the same sense.”
The Redskins are coming off an NFC East title last season and Fletcher said: “We had high expectations. We still have high expectations, didn’t think we’d be sitting here with the record that we have and have played the way we’ve played. Those are the things that’s most disconcerting … the way we’ve played. Obviously things happen in the National Football League. But the way we’ve played has been the most disappointing part of it.”
