Mon, 7 Jan 2013|
CSN Washington dot com. Today the Redskins were handed their first loss in eight games and their season. Has ended I'm Jennifer Williams alongside rich handler at this is skins social or taking questions from the fans -- everyone wanted to know. Why Robert Griffin the third wasn't -- earlier. Well first of all. It is to make the most important point the doctors did say it was OK for him to continue playing me. They examined him after after he got injured right before the second touchdown pass turned out these last touchdown pass. He went in said he was taped up the doctors looked at a said he was OK to go dead at that point just matter pain tolerance. Robert Griffin the third kept on saying you know my -- and said he asked him numerous times if he still can go. He said he could Mike Shanahan -- whose words now that's the process and you can debate whether or not. Kirk cousins my -- about it a better job you know you're you're gonna make -- there's there's no question that a procedure was followed. They talked about it more than once and the doctors cleared the decision made was to let them play. -- I have a question for you solid first quarter at those first two drives alone but then the Redskins kind of collapsed what happened. Yeah I I think their defense really started and you know nothing you know the defense was not gonna shut down the Seahawks all game. But since talks is really took overtime possession that at that point after the second now after the second touchdown. You know I think the Redskins head to head you went a long time with just one play it just that that won that one long pass intended for Pierre Garcon and got injured -- that got -- intercepted. So. You know they just didn't have the ball very much that kind of took Alfred Morris said the game plan is -- is -- is they've they fell behind. And was. RG three -- accurate now he was not very sharp he hit on some passes tonight stances. But did he miss some things that may be in October he was hitting absolutely. You mentioned RG three. And Alfred Morris we got a tweet from Stacy who said that this loss as a diehard Redskins -- hash tag HT TER. This loss was easier to swallow -- going five and eleven are even. I think it's mostly so overall I'm really not not to the game itself obviously that decision is on me went ten to six and the most important thing was you've got that quarterback you know the Redskins made the playoffs in 2005. Mark Brunell. Didn't seem like a long term future maybe in 27007. Todd Collins didn't seem like a long term solution so now they have long term solution the most important position in there along with. Alfred Morris you know Pierre Garcon who was only you know it was only mid twenties has a lot of good years years left and trying to. -- on offensive line that nobody in all the offensive skill players are under thirty. So you know there is a very bright in solid future head. -- coming to the Redskins will be hampered somewhat by the cap penalty but you know they should be a coach and players another draft coming so. You know now it seems Shanahan knows how to dig deep in the draft for some good bargains yes can you say offered more so but yeah. Yeah so it's it's clearly more silver lining -- -- -- will I think it'll appear that way to much for his commitment after a few days. And you know if only Woolsey if RG three can stay healthy and how serious this injury is tomorrow over it's thank you so much. But most thought they key guys for submitting questions this season in making that segments had to success. Keep it locked on CSN Washington dot com for all your Redskins coverage.
