Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo said it best when he addressed the media on Sunday, saying, “we’re not into moral victories.” A loss is a loss, and there are no asterisks to go alongside it.
But the flip side of that discussion is that there is never a need to apologize for a victory. Winning is hard enough in the NFL, and the teams that find a way to win, find themselves where they want to be at the end of the season.
Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman has been on both sides of this equation in his NFL career, and wasn’t about to regret a win on Sunday.
“When you get a victory, you’ve got to appreciate the things that you did that got you those 17 points,” he said. “It was frustrating that we couldn’t finish [drives], but we did a lot of good things in this game.”
Overall, the Redskins are in a good place going into the bye this afternoon, but Grossman doesn’t even believe that we’ve seen the best Redskins football yet.
“I think we’re playing OK,” he said. “We can improve and we will improve. We’re 3-1. We’ve got a chance to rest a little bit and play a big game against the Eagles.”
