Receiver Joshua Morgan immediately accepted the blame for throwing the ball at cornerback Cortland Finnegan on Washington’s final possession in a three-point loss to the St. Louis Rams a week earlier. The penalty turned a possible game-tying 47-yard field goal attempt into a 62-yard attempt that fell far short.

“I should’ve kept my calm,” Morgan told reporters in the locker room after the game.

Asked if the coaching staff was setting a proper example for the players, Mike Shanahan said he doesn’t think there should ever be an exception to his regular schedule that has his top assistants speaking to reporters only on Thursdays.

“We’ve got a process that we work through,” Mike Shanahan said. “And that’s our process.”
