It hasn’t taken long for Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Greg Manusky to have confidence in his unit.
Moving up from linebackers coach to running the Washington defense this season, Manusky wants to see a more aggressive approach from his guys, particularly along the defensive line.
While he didn’t necessarily guarantee success, Manusky expects to make opposing offenses feel “uncomfortable.”
“We might not win a game,” Manusky said with a grin, according to The Washington Post’s Liz Clarke. “But we’ll sure beat the crap out of a lot of people!”
One of Manusky’s expected stars will be outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, who has liked what he’s seen so far from his new DC.
“You look at the install sheets for when we’re installing our defense, and you see a lot of lines going forward,” said Kerrigan. “That’s a cool (thing) for a guy that plays up front because it’s going to allow us to hopefully play in the backfield a little bit.”
Manusky has his work cut out for him as he looks to improve a Redskins defense that ranked 28th overall in 2016.
