Redskins continue to defend their use of the clock Sunday
"They let that clock go about an extra five seconds too long," Shanahan said Monday at Redskins Park. "We should have had the ball with 25 seconds but that’s neither here nor there. But we do have three opportunities there to go for the end zone before we kick a field goal. And that’s what you’re looking for. You’re trying to get points, possibly a touchdown and a minimum of a field goal."

Brian Mitchell to Keith Burns: ‘You are a problem’
"Special teams, they took about 25 steps back," the former special-teams great said. "I said that when you have two weeks to prepare for a team, you have to come out with the best scheme, offensively, defensively and special teams. And I’ll say this: Keith Burns, you are a problem right now, because you can’t seem to get your guys to play for you. The one thing that every coach has to have — great coaches — they have to have the ability to get people to buy into what they’re trying to present. And at this point, they’re not buying into one damn thing that you’re presenting."

Shanahan: Wrong call was made regarding fumble recovery
"It was a missed call," Shanahan said. "I saw it during the game, but if somebody makes a call incorrectly and that’s what they see, you can’t challenge it. So it’s just a missed call. We should have had the ball there."

Red zone struggles, miscommunications baffle Redskins players
"It’s mind-boggling. It’s frustrating," left tackle Trent Williams said. "In this league. You’ve got to come away with touchdowns in the red zone, and you can’t turn the ball over. We weren’t good in those areas, and the game reflected it."
