Can the Redskins use the bus crash as an excuse for losing to the Vikings?
Yesterday, the Minnesota Vikings beat the Redskins fair and square, because their defensive line dominated RG3 and the Redskins front. Well now it seems like the Redskins are trying to use the bus accident that happened before the game as an excuse.
“Myself and (Darrel Young) were sitting at the very front, and we saw the bus hit the bus and we both thought we were gonna fall out the window shield. Everybody got a little bit of whiplash I believe. We bumped our knees on the front of the little guard ’cause we were sitting there in the front. It was scary, man, scary to be in that situation.”
Jay Gruden confirmed running back Silas Redd missed the game due to back spasms.
“I got a stiff neck myself,” Gruden added, per The Washington Post. “A little unique way to start the day getting ready for a football game when you’re five feet away from driving off a cliff on the highway.”
I want to know what you think? Could it really have effected their game, or is it just another poor excuse for not performing?
