After the first two victories of the season, there was only a sprinkling of self-congratulatory tweets from Redskins players. After last night’s victory, there was a chorus of apologies and vows to do better for Redskins Nation.
Tight end Fred Davis:
Linebacker Perry Riley:
Wide receiver Donte Stallworth:
Cornerback Josh Wilson:
Fullback Darrel Young:
Return specialist Brandon Banks:
Nose tackle Chris Neild:
Safety Reed Doughty:
Wide receiver Anthony Armstrong:
And then Wilson made an astute observation this morning:
Not one single tweet made excuses for last night, and everyone recognizes that they let one get away. There’s a sense or responsibility with this group, without the feeling of dread or panic. With the Rams on the radar, this team seems singularly focused on going 1-0 in Week 4.
