It's probably a defense mechanism because he knows it would be a horrible career move if he slipped and let the truth come out.
Reporter: Why did the Offense struggle today?
RW: For the same reasons we've been struggling the entire 2nd half of the season. We keep running outdated, ineffective schemes that everybody has seen us use over and over again. Our route trees and passing schemes are simply juvenile and any barely competent secondary has no problem blanketing our receivers. When we play Dlines that we know are going to be limiting our pass protection, our quick passing game or screen game is either non-existent or high school level. We are so risk averse that we refuse to go with what works, instead we play ultra-conservative to keep from "losing" the game on offense. Overall, we are running piss-poor plays that rely on perfect execution by us AND mistakes by the opponent to be successful and that makes it impossible to get any rhythm established. Next.
