Locker Room Buzz: Washington Redskins - NFC East Blog - ESPN
Late rally: Another big fourth quarter didn’t mean much to left tackle Trent Williams. The Redskins trailed 38-7 entering the fourth quarter. They scored two touchdowns, but Williams said there wasn’t much to take from those. "Not really," he said. "If it ain’t a score to tie the game or take the lead, it’s [meaningless]."

Niles Paul’s frustration spills over on personal foul
"Niles is a great player," Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said. "I saw exactly what happened. I can understand why he was upset. I told Niles, ‘I understand. I watched the whole play. But you’ve got to keep your cool…. They’re going to always see the second shot. So just keep your poise.’ Niles is a great young man. He works extremely hard. He’s gonna do the things that you always want a player that plays hard to do. But I got after him pretty good. I said, ‘Nobody can do that. You can’t give your team a 15-yard penalty."

RG3 still not himself, but Redskins say early woes not QB's fault - Washington Times
"He’s getting in a rhythm with the wide receivers and things like that, but he’s doing a lot better," running back Alfred Morris said. "He looks like what he did last year, that’s just from my vantage point. Somebody could say something different, but I feel like he’s back to his normal self."

Ten observations: Packers 38, Redskins 20 - John Keim - ESPN
Do not assume that just because the Redskins were 3-6 and won seven straight that they will emerge from this horrid start to have great success. It wasn’t that they lost 38-20 to Green Bay, it’s that the Packers could have done a lot more. Of the Redskins' first six losses a year ago, they really only were out of one game -- the loss in Pittsburgh.

"If those guys want me to go out there and be the stern leader then I can do that," he said. "I got some of that from some of my teammates on the sideline asking me to do some more things. Not necessarily change who I am as a person but if they want me to be hard on them, I’ll be hard on them."

Redskins at 0-2: Why and where to go from here
The team is putting two rookies (Baccari Rambo and David Amerson) on the field, and they must ‘show and prove’ immediately with solid tackling and start collecting/creating turnovers or the secondary will continue to vex the entire defensive unit.

Redskins fans talking Kirk Cousins - Bog
Sheehan: The Redskins would’ve had more short-term success if a healthy Kirk Cousins had played in the first two games instead of Robert.  Maybe the long-term would’ve been impacted by Robert not getting the work but Philly’s defense is bad and Robert wasn’t ready to take advantage of it.
