According to a tweet from a Washington Redskins beat writer, new Dallas Cowboys kicker Shaun Suisham told coach Wade Phillips about the Redskins’ swinging gate fake field goal play Monday night against the New York Giants.
Dallas HC Wade Phillips: K Shaun Suisham alerted him to the Redskins’ swinging gate fake FG before they ran it vs NYG on Monday night.
If this is true, this is big news.
Is Suisham out for revenge on his former team? Definitely. Suisham didn’t know that the ‘Skins would run the play on Monday night. He was alerting Phillips of the play in case they ran it this Sunday night when the Cowboys visit the Redskins.
Is this dirty pool? Yes. I think it’s poor form on Suisham’s behalf, but can you blame him? He missed only three field goals this year and he got cut. Suisham wanted to hurt the Redskins’ chances of winning at any cost. It’s nice to see that our kicker is willing to throw his old team completely under the bus. I wonder if Suisham told Phillips about any other Redskins trick plays.
