Mitchell은 경기 후 NBC Sports Washington에서 경기장에서보다 팀 벤치에서 더 많은 싸움이 일어났다고 말했습니다..
“Dallas was out there kicking our a—- 일관되게. We sat there, and we took it. But we’re fighting our teammates. … The enemy is the blue and silver. We did no fighting against them,” 그는 말했다.
He also had a message for Washington coach Ron Rivera.
“We have a head coach who wants to be cool. 나는 이것을 말할 것이다: You have to show some emotions if you want your team to show it. I’ve watched too much football. I’ve watched this football team for well over 30 연령. This is a passionate fan base, and I think you need to give some level of passion,” 그는 말했다.
Mitchell added: “That’s why this team is awful. Because nobody corrects things. We sit here, we want to pacify people, we want to act as if everything is good. You’re not good when you’re sitting there 6-9. … You’re not good when you’re getting embarrassed like that.”
Dallas beat Washington, 56-14. The game saw barely any offense from Washington and a fight on the sideline between teammates Jonathan Allen and Daron Payne.
Rivera said he talked to both players after the game. He said it appeared that the team’s recent struggles could’ve played a part in the brouhaha.
“네, frustration. Wanting to win. Having an opportunity for the last few weeks and not being able to get it done,” 리베라가 말했다. “Not being able to have all the pieces in place that you need to go out there and play together. That’s what that is. It’s guys wanting to compete, wanting to win more than anything else.”
Rivera added it will be important to see how the team bounces back after the loss.
“잘, more so than anything else, we’ve got to games left to play, and we’re going to play them to win. That’s just the way it is,” Rivera said when asked what his message was to the team.
“I told them, 나는 말했다, ‘If you play this game long enough, you’re going to get beat like this. It happens. How you respond to it, how you bounce back, how you play, that tells more about who you are than anything else.'”
