Redskins Vs. Rams: Post-Game Quotes From Ryan Torain And Clinton Portis

It's no surprise that the Redskins players were disappointed following their crushing 30-16 loss to the St. Louis Rams tonight.

The most interesting development of the game was the emergence of newly signed running back Ryan Torain, who got the majority of the carries in the second half. Mike Shanahan revealed after the game that it was part of his plan to get the former Denver running back involved on first and second downs. Torain told Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan that he was ready to embrace the opportunity.

"I was just waiting on the coaches to call my number, and when they called ... I was ready ... Yeah, I was taking [first team] reps. I was preparing myself to get ready for the game. And I was excited to play.

Clinton Portis was refreshingly politically correct when asked about the situation following the game. He told Grant Paulsen that "I have no idea" what his role will be going forward, but then went on to tell the Redskins Insider that he'll be cheering on any other players who step in.

Perhaps Chris Cooley said it best though. His quote to the Redskins Insider was plain and simple. "We got our asses kicked."
