Redskins beat reporter Grant Paulsen joined “The Sports Junkies” from St. Louis and recapped the win to help improve the team to 3-1.  However, besides the winning record, Paulsen said what separates a middle of the pack team from an elite team is the ability to put the game away, which the Skins did not do, only winning 17-10.

Part of the reason for not being able to close the door on the Rams Sunday was Rex Grossman’s inconsistent play at quarterback.

“When the Redskins named him the starter preseason, they knew what they were getting.  And that’s not changing. He’s not going to be benched by any means this bye week and anyone speculating that is off base.  But he did have his first, what I call, stinker of the season.”

Skins were leading 17-0 going into the fourth quarter against the lifeless Rams.

“You can’t play down to the level of your opponent you got to do a better job finishing and that’s something they’re going to learn…The next step in your development into becoming a contender is figuring out how to beat up on teams you should.”

The NFC East leading Redskins have a bye week before playing Philadelphia.
