Some afternoon tidbits on The Day After:
— Adrian Wilson passed on talking to the media after the game, so he did so today. Today’s topic, among other things? His play. So, Adrian, how would you assess how you’ve played this season? “Like s***.”
“I have to make those plays whenever they come my way,” he said. “That is always what I would say I’d do and for whatever reason it’s not happening this year … Yet.”
Later, Wilson seemed to clarify his original assessment (or contradict it, I suppose). “It’s not that I’m not playing well, it’s that I’m not making the plays I’ve normally been making,” Wilson said. “You can’t get frustrated going to work Wednesday through Saturday. You have to believe in your work and I do believe in that.”
— Safety Kerry Rhodes was asked to break down the play where he, Wilson and linebacker Paris Lenon were back on Seahawks receiver Deon Butler, only to have Butler not only catch it but dodge all three defenders to complete the 63-yard touchdown. “The play to Butler? I’m not going to put anyone out there. It was a good play by them. He made the catch, make some people miss and they made a big play.”
— As everyone has heard by now, the Redskins and quarterback Donovan McNabb have agreed to a five-year extension with $40 million in guarantees (Which, by the way, WOW). Anyway, that means McNabb isn’t going to be a free agent, he doesn’t have a chance to come to Arizona (not that it was any guarantee anyway, even that the Cards would be interested) and so this blog is now a McNabb-free zone. Unless the Cards and Redskins meet. UPDATE: Yes, I know there is now more info about McNabb. I actually tweeted it first thing Tuesday morning. I’ll have a blog on it later.
— This probably could be stepping into something dangerous, but I will do a live chat tomorrow at 1 p.m. Arizona time (3 p.m. EST). So if you have questions, bring ‘em on (and here is the link).
