Washington Redskins' defense fails in loss to Minnesota Vikings - ESPN
"We had a lead, we got down, we came back to get the lead, let them drive 80 yards right down the field, take the lead," Gruden said. "We take the lead and they come right back down and go 80 yards again and take the lead again. Very, very, very, very sickened by that. I’m disappointed. I thought our defense played a lot better than that. No turnovers again. It’s just not good enough by any stretch."
Kerrigan echoed what others said, dismissing any notion that the locker room is divided. It's a question and issue that has arisen in the past and now was done so with the return of quarterback Robert Griffin III. "We're definitely together," Kerrigan said.
Jay Gruden dismissed a pre-game report by ESPN’s Britt McHenry – who said RGIII has alienated himself -- as "amateurish" after the Redskins loss, and local media seemed to agree.
Here's a postgame quote from Robert Griffin III, who started his first game since dislocating his ankle in Week 2, to take into consideration: "Myself and (Darrel Young) were sitting at the very front, and we saw the bus hit the bus and we both thought we were gonna fall out the window shield. Everybody got a little bit of whiplash I believe. We bumped our knees on the front of the little guard 'cause we were sitting there in the front. It was scary, man, scary to be in that situation." The bus ride to a game is usually a time for players to compose themselves before hitting the field. Instead, the Redskins were jolted from their pre-game lull, and coach Jay Gruden confirmed running back Silas Redd missed the game due to back spasms. "I got a stiff neck myself," Gruden added, per The Washington Post. "A little unique way to start the day getting ready for a football game when you're five feet away from driving off a cliff on the highway."
Jackson has now had more than 100 receiving yards in five of the Redskins' nine games this season, including nine receptions of more than 40 yards and five of more than 50 yards.

We don’t yet know if Jay Gruden will be a more successful head coach of the Redskins than Mike Shanahan was. We have a pretty good idea that Gruden will take a more aggressive approach to shooting down negative media reports about the organization in general and about quarterback Robert Griffin II...
