Wilbon: Lack of Monday Mourning Led to Promising Week
What happened six days earlier, on the Monday after the massacre, won't show up under yards rushing or tackles made. There's no way, exactly, to tell how serious self-examination six days earlier affected time of possession or a place kicker's accuracy in overtime Sunday against the New York Jets. But the Washington Redskins, particularly the coaches and old pros who've had to recover from football humiliation a time or two in their lives, knew the overtime victory here in the Meadowlands over the Jets couldn't have happened without some honest soul-searching 24 hours after Sunday's embarrassing loss in New England.
