Rock Cartwright Post-Game Media Session

On the Redskins' turnovers:
"In this league you can't turn the ball over and win football games. I think we had four [turnovers], and one was returned for a touchdown. Anytime you give up turnovers, you are going to struggle to get back to where you want to be. We got down and we just struggled. We couldn't get it done."

On if the offense noticed a difference with offensive consultant Sherman Lewis calling the plays:
"Actually, I think it went a little faster. We just got to protect Jason [Campbell]. If Jason has more time, he is able to make more throws. They (the Eagles defense) were in there a lot. They forced us to make bad throws and forced us to take sacks. Anytime that happens it's hard to win football games."

On what needs to be done to get this offense going:
"I don't know. I just know we've got to protect the quarterback. Everything starts up front. As long as you protect the quarterback everything will be ok. I think we gave up a lot of sacks today. We definitely have to address that and try to move forward. We have a couple days off and a bye week. Hopefully we can regroup and come back fired up."

On how the team is feeling as a unit:
"Guys are still fighting hard. Guys are going out and practicing day-in and day-out with all they got. It is really frustrating when you can't win football games. We got to find a way to put it all together. Like I said, we have a couple days off, we will come back rejuvenated and get ready for Atlanta."
