Bill Callahan has telling quote about Redskins’ analytics department
The Washington Redskins have a nasty habit of saying the quiet part out loud when it comes to their organizational shortcomings.
On Wednesday, interim coach Bill Callahan admitted that the team didn’t have anyone on its coaching staff to analyze fourth down or clock management decisions — but it might not be the worst idea.
Bill Callahan says the Redskins don’t have an analytics department but it could be a good idea

That’s about right. The Redskins do have analytics in the front office, but it’s an organization that inevitably seems incapable of making themselves sound like they have it together. It probably wouldn’t help them this year, but yes, it’s certainly something worth considering.
Despite the fact that it’s a pretty cringeworthy quote from Callahan, it’s probably not the most tone-deaf thing said about the organization by one of its employees this season. That’s really quite telling.
