Last week, Greg Blache said the Washington Redskins performance on defense starts with him and how he’s the leader and how he would throw himself under the bus.

Now he’s not talking.


At his regular Thursday group interview, Blache made a short statement and then handed the talk ing duties to secondary coach Jerry Gray.

No, seriously, he did. Just another day at the circus

Blache will also stop doing a weekly segment for News 4 and his post-game interview with Comcast. Gray will assume those duties as well.

It makes Blache look bad. The Redskins’ season is going to get worse before it gets better and if the defense doesn’t play well, he’ll get to skirt the media and we’ll be forced to ask position coaches like Gray, John Palermo, Kirk Olivadotti and Steve Jackson about the struggles.

The NFL requires coordinators to be available once every two weeks, but the Redskins said they consulted with the league office on Blache’s decision.
