A Lack of Focus Brings Strong Run to a Grinding Halt
Several Redskins veterans insisted over the past week their team would not lose focus or overlook the Rams, despite rampant local chatter about the likelihood of a 7-1 start to the season. But after yesterday's game, Clinton Portis suggested his team had in fact listened to the sudden praise. He said practices on Thursday and Friday were excessively relaxed, that Coach Jim Zorn needed to "get on" players, and that the Redskins had more focus when they had been regarded as underdogs.
