“We were flat out-coached,” Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. “There’s no question about that. We weren’t as ready as I would have liked to have been. We didn’t execute like I would like to have seen. That falls on my shoulders.”
“We’re too good to be playing like this on a national stage,” said end Chris Baker, knowing the Redskins lost by 22 in the season opener on a Monday night.
“I hate being in this position,” Redskins defensive end Ricky Jean Francois said. “We controlled our own destiny and now we need help. We put ourselves in that hole and now we have to dig out of it.”
