Sammy Watkins needed to get some things off his chest after the 35-25 loss to the Kirk Cousin led Washington football team. It was either him practicing what he wanted to say to the team or he was repeating what he just told the team, but either way it was a gem of a rant that left me wanting to run some routes or block somebody. Watkins should follow this feeling, he has all the talent in the world to become one of the next best receivers and already sounds like a great leader.
“I’m going to step up and talk, I’m going to make sure things get changed. I’m pretty sure the staff is, the organization, the coaches, we’ve got to address every problem. Whatever the problem is, we’ve got to address it. I think once we do that we’ll be alright. We’ve just got to keep fighting as a team. We can’t get down on ourselves. We have to build off these next two games and keep fighting. I think we can’t quit on ourselves. We’ve just got to keep winning. I think we’re close. I just think we just need to focus a little more and forget what’s going on on the outside. We need to forget about anybody’s feelings. We need to call people out. If I’m doing something wrong, call me out. If the line is doing something wrong, messing up, call them out. If it’s the defensive line, the secondary, we need to call that out, because at the end of the day, we’re doing it to win, not to get on somebody and make them feel bad. We’re grown men and this is our job.”
