RG3, Redskins come up short against Rams in 31-28 loss
Big lead, Week 1 momentum go out window with loss
Question of the Day
“This is the dirtiest game I’ve ever played in,” Redskins fullback Darrel Young said. “Hitting after the play. A guy ripped my helmet off one time. I didn’t know that was legal.”
Said Redskins coach Mike Shanahan: “I have never been in a game like this.”
That’s so well known, yet Morgan still let his emotions overtake him.
“I never did nothing like that before,” Morgan said. “It just came to point where you just get tired of it.”
After the ball bounced harmlessly in the end zone, and the delighted fans filed out of Edwards Jones Dome, Redskins players spoke of growing from the experience.
How else to heal such a painful sting?
“I’m excited because this is what every great team has to go through to be great,” Young said. “We can’t have the special teams mistakes; that’s two weeks in a row. We can’t have the false starts at the goal line. We can’t have the missed block by me on the outside zone. It all adds up. We’ve got to learn as men to grow from that. We’ve got to learn we can’t always hit guys back.”
