CSN Washington dot com. Knew we had some downs and some ups in the game. -- the way we finishes than where the guys stepped up and made some plays at the end of the game was a very impressed obviously needed. There's some big game for us you know coming back into our stadium after winning three games. We knew when you get to one today was obviously a platoon in a whole lot so. I'm really proud of the way the guys playing. Mike do you have any indication of how serious roberts' injury as I really don't twice it's sore right now he wanted to go back in the game which is a good sign. I was a positive. -- but I don't know to him. Like the designed run for Kirk cousins they're not something we see every day what went into that decision. But got some options on the play. You really don't know what defense are going to be and but we didn't think they'd be expected to do so when we got right defense and -- that a great job in contention. Like we've obviously talked a lot about Robert now for this year your rookie class but Richard Crawford Kirk cousins made it frankly is of the day much talk about their efforts there frank. Yeah you always want to have to yours and you keep -- quarterback for her Josh Morgan is on his way out right now but the set.
He's done that since he's been here you know truly tough and it's second and third team quarterback and not get very many reps that you expect them to go in game situations this and play as a starter. So his preparation has been great you know throughout the whole year. You know he's very tough and everything anyone in there and thinness of the center it plays the way he played Richard Crawford. -- an opportunity we thought he did a great job and precision by catching the ball and getting them all of field. We Solomon of the whole game then we thought. Has been our best interest of our team to give them an opportunity. As well Niles Paul and obviously -- and it really took advantage of the opportunity today.
Coach going back to Robert is MRI tonight it will be tomorrow and then also just your conversation with them. After he came out to the second time did did you just feel like at that point it was it was due to -- anything else they that he could like.
Seeing that he was hurt in the second time we came out and -- you could see his face and I -- talk to the doctor and now. It felt like -- best interest for him not to come back again but he wanted to he really came from. Going back can he was going to get out there so that's a great sign. So hopefully. Tomorrow I'll be negative. From that moment eighty took a hit until when you found -- to take him out. But what she -- on him and I really I can't and we're seeing the house I do know and I knew get hit you could see a little bit on the replay and it was hurting the first time but. -- came -- he came on the sideline. Kirk took one play. I knew you wanna go back and after that second hit in the way. His body language Rosenthal as best interest not to government can. With both teams being so close of proximity it was a Smart accelerating than any other game trade -- the season. But beyond me honestly we don't get a chance. Spent a lot of time doing it's many times -- reason AFC compared NFC it's always you know within your division. But I've always you're kind of so much respect for the organization what they've accomplished and how hard they play and you know how many how many times they've always went home last how many years you know. And so that was a good challenge for us because we knew performed very well coached team Tina played extremely hard to find a way to win you know. What was so special for us.
Make that -- for -- her first year guy Steve ice water in his fans what's his situation. I'm glad he's on -- football -- that's for sure you know he's. He's made everything.
And nearly game -- game on front of the team and communities. Doesn't surprise me hell hole he handled himself. The reason why we went back in there I hit at the end everybody was ready he was not. He already was there on the other side I'm not sure where they're at so I'm gonna keep doing any normal timing for fuel goes somewhere around there pulling him. I think the players -- not pulling the ball well Nicklaus who. Might might you can you talk about -- curt being prepared for what does that say about him to go in that situation. That's to be prepared for kind of stay poised to make the throws that he did. I thought he did that all through precision I thought he really take him out of his opportunities when he was in there. You know I got a lot of confidence in -- and I got a lot of confidence in Rex you know for me to. Put -- in that situation at this second team quarterbacks or his career he kind of gives you an idea. Well I think of all you know -- has been great to us Robert Kirk you know from day one you know. Learn the system together you know going -- working every day you get a chance for a couple quarterbacks that. He'll start from scratch and learn the system and they push each other and really support each other so can -- two rookies and that type of environment. CSN Washington dot com.
