The Redskins may be out of the playoff hunt, but that doesn't mean they can afford to mail it in over the next four weeks.
After knocking him down all night, Justin Tuck gave Robert Griffin III a nice lift after Sunday's game.
Mike Shanahan, Kyle Shanahan and Robert Griffin III continue to field questions about their commitment and trust in each other. It has been a theme that has dogged the Redskins since late last season when Griffin first injured his right knee.
In all, five Redskins players have sustained a concussion this season: tight end Jordan Reed, safeties Reed Doughty, Brandon Meriweather and Jordan Pugh, and cornerback David Amerson.

The Redskins started strong against the Giants, but a special teams blunder changed the momentum of the game, and eventually Washington fell to 3-9.
The worst part, Barry Cofield said, is that the Washington Redskins have to show up at on Monday morning and pretend everything is all right. A 24-17 loss to the New York Giants at FedEx Field on Sunday night left the Redskins with a reality they had been staring down for several weeks: They are no longer eligible for the postseason, left home again in January, and for the next four weeks they will wind down a season without aim or answer.

A deep voice carried through the locker room's gloom. "It hurts. It sucks," Brian Orakpo said. "What else can I say?" Used training tape, bits of turf and an orphaned white sock decorated the faded gold carpet under his feet. Late Sunday night, the locker room at FedEx Field emptied as fast as Redskins could shower and dress after the 24-17 loss to the Giants.
Terry Shea — the quarterback guru who prepared Robert Griffin III for nearly three months to play in the NFL — has been watching the fall from grace of his former student from afar.
When the Giants come to town Sunday, the 3-8 Redskins will be playing for more than just pride. They'll be playing for job security, as well.
Although any realistic hope of making the playoffs ended Monday night, what transpires over the next five weeks is going to speak volumes about the Redskins' direction.
