The locker room opens up at Redskin Park in 30 minutes, followed by Jim Zorn’s press conference at 12:25 p.m.

Here are some leftover quotes from Zorn and the players:


Zorn on how the Redskins fell behind quickly:

“We had four plays in the first quarter. I know the time of possession must have been lopsided until we started moving the ball. We felt like we could move the ball on them and we did through the air. Our first run was awesome and I felt like we were going into to score but it wasn’t to be. In four plays, the quarter was over. That hurt us a little bit, but I think our guys did what we asked them coming out. The positive part is that we played hard the whole game, we just didn’t have the poise in situations that we needed to.”

Chris Cooley how on last year’s game was like this year’s loss:

“It resembled last year’s game quite a bit. I think we felt more confident offensively and we could move the ball down the field and we had a lot of opportunties that we didn’t take advantage of. We had a couple drives where we really established we could move it down and killed ourselves. We had our chances to win the football game. The Giants are outstanding but no one in this locker room feels we should have lost this game.”

Cooley on watching the first quarter:

“It was brutal. They did a good job controlling the ball and when you start to see your defense doing that, you have to turn it around by controlling the ball and taking a drive down the field.”

Jason Campbell on Osi Umenyiora’s sack/forced fumble/fumble return TD:

“We were trying to get a downfield shot and the defense took it away. I’m waiting for my backs to get out and throw the check down and right when I was going to hit Mike Sellers, Osi made a great play on the ball. As a quarterback, you have to feel it a little more and slide up in the pocket.”
