The Washington Redskins were blown out at home by the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. The Redskins offense managed a total of 190 yards of offense.
“We went against an excellent football team that dominated us,” head coach Mike Shanahan said, via Pro Football Talk. “We haven’t got dominated like that since I’ve been here. Congratulations to them. They’re very well coached. They play well. We could have coached better, could have played better. We’ll do everything we can to get ready for next week. That’s the National Football League. They’re going to do that to a number of football teams. They have done it. They’re a pretty good football team. That’s one of the reasons they were in the Super Bowl last year.”
Shanahan wasn’t the only one frustrated. Quarterback Robert Griffin III completed 17 of 27 passes for 127 yards and an interception. That gave him a passer rating of 58.7 and a quarterback rating of 4.7.
“Yes, it’s frustrating. We’re frustrated. Everyone’s tired of losing — us, fans, the media, everybody,” RGIII told reporters after the game, via NFL.com. “The one thing to take away — one thing that we’re not is quitters.”
When asked about “making strides” Griffin reportedly was agitated.
“What am I supposed to do? Come up here and talk about how bad we are? I mean, that’s not my job,” Griffin said. “My job is to answer your questions and move on to the next day and get better. It’s not anything personal. You’re the only one asking those questions, but I love my guys. I’ll go to war with them any day.”
