THE WASHINGTON TIMES
The Atlanta Falcons have a translator for the Fun 'n' Gun.
Falcons quarterback Doug Johnson is a product of the system Washington coach Steve Spurrier made famous at Florida. With potential espionage in mind, the Redskins are changing around their calls and hand signals for Sunday's game at Atlanta.
"Oh, I'm sure he'll go in there and tell them a lot of our audibles, a lot of our signals and stuff," said Redskins assistant quarterbacks coach Noah Brindise, who played with Johnson at Florida. "So we're going to have to find a way to combat that."
Complicating the situation is the noise level at the Georgia Dome. Quarterback Patrick Ramsey might have to resort completely to hand signals at times to get the offense into the right play. And hand signals will be easier for Atlanta to spot.
"We're going to have to change some stuff, and we're all going to have to be on the same page," Ramsey said. "We've got to know it."
