Redskins Players Run Through Range Of Emotions Following Blowout Loss

When you get humbled by 31 points on national television, on a day where you sign your franchise quarterback to a contract extension, there are a lot of different ways you can respond. Call it a 10 Stages of Grief thing, if you want. Us fans go through it, and clearly, Washington Redskins players do as well. 

Back in the day, we would have no idea what was really going through an athlete's head following a blowout like this. Now ... okay, we probably still don't have an idea. But at least we have Twitter, which many athletes still use as a way to let out their feelings. In the immediate aftermath of the 59-28 defeat, many Redskins players did just that. Some highlights below the jump.

By and large, the marquee tweets broke down into three categories. First, there's the apologetic response, summed up by the following:


Last night was horrendous, that's not who we r & not where we want to be. Yall deserve better. Stand with us. Negativity won't be tolerated.less than a minute ago via Touiteur

Then, you have the defensive tweets, best summed up by these goodies, as well as several others from Phillip Daniels' feed.

And finally, you have the reflective tweets, the ones that probably ran though everyone's head when this was all over. These final two ones pretty much tell the whole story.
