Postgame quotes following Commanders’ 8th straight loss

Well, even the post-game show kicked off with a major error.

Bryan Colbert Jr., the Commanders’ postgame show host, began declaring the final score was 35-10.

Actually, Dallas had kicked a field goal, its final three points only 1:06 into the final quarter. Not sure, but wondering, “Did Colbert ever look at the scoreboard during the remaining 13:54 of the game?”

Here are some quotes from immediately following Sunday’s 38-10 loss to the Cowboys at FedEx Field.

“A quarter doesn’t win football games. You have to play four quarters and find some way of doing it…ultimately this game is about pride. It’s about passion, and it’s showing what you are about, and in some instances tonight, I didn’t see what a lot of people are about.” Brian Mitchell

“There is something disappointing about this. I understand and empathize with this. I’ve played in games like this when nothing matters. But, you would like to see the guys dig a little deeper, make some of those tackles, especially the corners. But I understand.” Logan Paulsen

“To see the juice that he brings, the bend that he has…not just today, but since Jamin Davis has been out. So it is nice to see that he deserves to be a part of this moving forward.” Logan Paulsen on Khaleke Hudson

“It’s the end of season that wasn’t very good, wasn’t what we thought it was going to be. But it’s also the end of an era in a sense. This is the end of the Dan Snyder era, where you had the last coach he hired… a lot of things are about to change.” Brian Mitchell

“It just gets very heavy. It makes your stomach uneasy. You just don’t know what’s going to happen to anybody. But that’s just the reality of playing.” Tress Way

“I am disappointed in how we played the second half. I thought we did some good things early on in the game. I expected us to play better in the second half, so that is disappointing.” Ron Rivera

“I’m not sure what to wait for, but I am going to meet with him (Josh Harris) sometime tomorrow. So, we’ll look forward to the conversation.” Ron Rivera

“To see how he overcame (cancer) and how he was still there for us — that’s much respect. That’s something you can’t forget about.” Antonio Gibson on Ron Rivera

“As it got away from us in terms of the score, it becomes difficult where you put so much on the quarterback to make something happen. That’s a little bit what it’s been like the last six weeks, seven weeks. It’s been tough. It’s been tough sledding. But he’s handled it well. You see certain talents and certain abilities.”  Ron Rivera on Sam Howell

“What Mr. Harris is doing with this group of investors, coming in and really spending the time, the effort, the money to do things the right way…that’s one of the pluses and one of the positives. It’s a very passionate fan base, and their expectations are big. I think these are the kind of people that can come in and lead that. This is what I think they (the fan base) should be excited about.” Ron Rivera

“He’s an incredible human being,”  Tress Way regarding Ron Rivera

“The one thing I know about Sam, the kid has guts.” Terry McLaurin on Sam Howell

“It was a lot of ups and downs, a tough year, not the year we expected to have, not the year we wanted to have. But that being said, I have learned a lot. I’ve grown a lot as a player, as a person. And for that, I wouldn’t trade it for anything.” Sam Howell

“I think I’ll be more consistent. I think the main thing for me is just playing. I think at times I was playing some good ball. I’ve just got to do it more consistently.” Sam Howell
