Redskins' Greg Blache Overreacts

This little video has been making the rounds all over the internets. It's Redskins defensive coordinator Greg Blache overreacting to a question asked by a Comcast Sports reporter. Basically it comes down to why the pass rush wasn't getting to Tom Brady early on in the Redskins' 27-24 loss to the Patriots.

From there, Blache gets bent because he's tired of answering the same questions. I can see how that would suck, but everyone who has watched a Redskins game over the past couple years knows that they are one of the worst teams at getting sacks and forcing turnovers. It is a great defense ... even more-so since they don't make any game turning plays.

When I was in high school, we were showed this video of how Disneyland trains their employees. One of the things that I will always take from that is this: The number one question they will be asked during your day will be "Where is the bathroom?". They will hear that a gazillion times and, obviously, it will get old. But remember that just because you heard that question 100 times, the guy who just asked you where the bathroom only asked you once. It's not his fault.

That kind of applies here. I'm sure Blache is tired of answering why his defense can't get pressure on the QB (they did a better job later in the first half) ... but that studio guy wouldn't be doing his job if he didn't ask. Blache may have answered this 10 times in the last week but that guy and the people watching may be hearing it for the first time.
