Griffin: 'Everybody's tired of losing'
If practice makes perfect, then it's no surprise the Redskins had one of their worst games of the season Monday night against the 49ers. Following the game, Washington running back Alfred Morris told reporters that the team did not have their best week of practice leading up to the San Francisco game.
"It wasn't the greatest of weeks," Morris was quoted saying in The Washington Post.
Considering the controversy surrounding the Redskins, from allegations that quarterback Robert Griffin III requests not to see negative plays during film study to comments RG3 made following a loss to the Eagles, it is not a stretch to think the team would be distracted. Morris did not see that as the case.
"I don’t read or watch that stuff. So I couldn’t tell you," Morris said. "But we did feel like we had a great chance to come out here and win. Like I said, we just didn’t show up.”
Morris is right that the Skins didn't show up. The running back finished the game with just 52 yards on 14 carries, his lowest totals since the first week of the season. Griffin was no better, throwing for 127 yards and an interception. Morris said the team came out with expectations to win the game, but San Francisco did not let that happen.

"There was just too many three and outs, three and outs," Morris said. "We just couldn’t get a rhythm. We just couldn’t figure out how to get it going."
