Orlando Scandrick Gets Defensive

Scandrick has apparently reconsidered his remarks on Sunday, when he called his performance "bad"



    Following the Cowboys’ overtime victory over the Washington Redskins last Sunday, cornerback Orlando Scandrick told reporters that he thought his performance was bad. Scandrick did commit two defensive holding penalties, one on the Redskins’ game-tying drive near the end of regulation, and allowed a 23-yard reception in the game, so we guessed we saw where he was coming from.

    But Scandrick has since changed course, and more or less accused the media of calling the performance the he called bad, bad.

     "Washington is a game," Scandrick said Tuesday, per ESPN Dallas. "It's just so funny, I make two bad plays out of 74 plays and all of a sudden I play bad, whatever. So people are gonna say what they gonna say."

    Of course, the idea that this performance was bad started with Scandrick himself--and he was reminded of as much.

    To which he replied: "I don’t think I played great but I mean I think I made two penalties and allowed a catch; two bad plays and a 23-yard catch and now all of a sudden I can’t play no more."

    We never said that, Orlando. We never said that.
