Don’t be a sourpuss. Pretend you fell asleep in your recliner at the end of the third quarter last night and missed the fourth quarter.
As harsh as the 45-21 loss turned out to be, let’s take a moment to appreciate what went right in Denver.
Highlight: Alfred Morris’ 27-yard run gives Washington room to operate
What went right: Darrel Young leads the way. Denver brings five men to the line of scrimmage, using Von Miller to set the edge. Logan Paulsen gets to Miller’s outside shoulder, and Young chips him to clear the way for Morris. Aldrick Robinson blocks Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie up the field, then releases him to put a block on the safety. Kory Lichtensteiger quickly bumps Trent Williams off the double team, allowing the tackle to seal off the middle linebacker. Young is one-on-one with Rodgers-Cromartie in the hole, leaving Morris to follow his fullback for a big chunk of yardage.

Unlike last year’s draft where the Redskins were determined to move up from their original draft slot of sixth overall to draft one of the biggest college prospects, the team stood pat during the 2013 NFL Draft and let everyone know that they weren’t going anywhere.
They didn’t move and they didn’t drop back; they kept their seven draft picks and added depth and addressed need at the same time.
Standing firm with what we currently have has been a recurring theme this offseason as the Redskins return all but one starter from last year’s squad.
Going into the draft, though, secondary was an area of interest for the 2012 NFC East champs as it seemed like every “expert” was tabbing a corner or safety to come to the Nation’s Capital.
Did they predict three DBs, two of which led the NCAA in interception, would join the team?
ESPN.com NFC East blogger Dan Graziano looked into his crystal ball for the NFL future for trio and sees some starters for the upcoming campaign.

Safety Jordan Pugh was officially named the newest member of the Washington Redskins Monday, signing with the team following the knee injury to rookie safety Jordan Bernstine.
Pugh, who was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in 2010 out of Texas A&M, appeared in 27 games with three starts in 2010-11. He amassed 22 tackles, one interception, three passes defensed and a forced fumble.
A quick look into Pugh’s background indicates it’s not too surprising to see him excelling at such a high professional level.
