Lorenzo Alexander On Redskins' Record: 'Nobody Has Played A Perfect Game Yet'

Just in case you were worried the Washington Redskins would get overconfident by being 3-1, linebacker Lorenzo Alexander did everything possible to downplay the Redskins' start in an interview with "The Mike Wise Show" on 106.7 The Fan.

"Nobody has played a perfect game yet," Alexander declared.

"Don't get me wrong. I'm never going to complain about getting a W," he continued. "But there's always improvement you can make as a football team. Everyone's looking for that perfect game, perfection. You may never get it, but that's what you want."

Alexander also talked about Rex Grossman after he struggled late in the game against the Rams. You could read these quotes as if they were backhanded compliments, but I think Alexander meant them in a positive way.

"What can I say. He's out there winning games for us. He's trying his hardest and making plays," Alexander said. "Everything is not his fault. This is why it's a team game. But Rex is going to be Rex. He's going to keep dialing it up, making the big throws. People are going to criticize him for making turnovers, but as long as we're winning games, I don't see a problem."

"With him, you're going to get some mistakes," he continued. "He's going to throw the ball up. But it's our responsibility as a defense to step up and hold them out of the end zone when something doesn't go our way. [Rex] will be just fine throughout the season."

Finally, Alexander gave some dap to Redskins fans who traveled to St. Louis on Sunday.

"I got to say one thing: Redskins Nation had it pumping. I don't know how many fans were there, but towards the end of the game, they were making a defensive chant. I was like, 'Are we at home?' They were loud," he said.
