No illusions for Redskins as Aaron Rodgers, Packers dominate
Garcon caught eight passes for 143 yards and running back Alfred Morris finished with 107 rushing yards. But that was about all the offense Washington could muster against the Packers. In the first half it managed just 155 yards of total offense, five first downs and was 0-for-5 on third downs.
After the game, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan didn’t rip into his players in the locker room. He chose a different tack because their despair was obvious following a loss Shanahan called “embarrassing.” At least one veteran appreciated the restraint, but also knows this will be no easy week of practice preparing for the Detroit Lions on Sunday at FedEx Field.
“Being a football player you’re so somber after a loss,” Cofield said. “You work your butt off, but in reality no one wants to hear about the labor pains. Everyone wants to see the baby. When you work your butt off all week and you come in and perform like this, it’s depressing. It gives you a glimmer of hope.”
