Redskins’ veterans: ‘It’s just one win’

Although happy to finally get a win, Redskins players said that they couldn’t really draw a whole lot of satisfaction from the victory.

Though 1-3 is better than 0-4, the Redskins still very much find themselves in a hole.

“It’s just one win,” wide receiver Santana Moss said. “You can’t sit here and say we’re world-beaters.”

The Redskins return to action on Oct. 13 at Dallas, host the Chicago Bears the following week, then head to Denver to round out the month of October.

Washington players acknowledged that their first win over Oakland came against an offense that was playing without its starting quarterback, Terrelle Pryor, and went much of the game without its starting running back in Darren McFadden. But a win in any way, shape or form is beneficial, the Redskins said.

“It’s good for momentum. We want to get the ball rolling in our direction,” nose tackle Barry Cofield said. “It’s going to be tougher times as we go forward. The offenses will be polished, and it won’t be the backup quarterback. Just like how we didn’t get too down when we were struggling, we’re not going to get too high. We’ll continue to work and try to get better.”
