December 30-- Skins end season 5-11 after 34-28 loss to Giants

The Redskins finished the season 5 and 11 after losing the season finale 34-28 to the Giants.. Tiki Barber rushed for a career high 234 yards and three touchdowns in what would have been his last game as a Giant had New York lost.. Gregg Williams blamed bad tackling for Barber’s day saying the Redskins overtacked the box to stop the run yet couldn’t get Barber down..
Jason Campbell led a second half comeback where the Skins trailed by as much as twenty bringing the team within six twice but failed to complete a pass on four straight downs on the Skins final offensive possession with 2 minutes to play..

Ladell Betts failed to go over 100 yards thus he remains tied for the franchise record of 5 straight 100 plus yard rush days.. Rock Cartwright broke Brian Mitchell’s kickoff return record for most return yards in a single season.. he needed 73 coming in.

Campbell was forced to leave the game for a brief period of time after he was hit hard trying to slide on one play.. Many credited Campbell’s toughness for coming back and playing through it..
QB Mark Brunell said he would like to stay in Washington and understands he would have to take a massive pay cut to remain with the team.. He says he plans to take a look at all of his options before deciding what he ultimately will do.. The Skins will release Brunell if he doesn’t restructure his contract..

G Derrick Dockery said he wants to stay in Washington and he hopes his agent and the team can come to terms on a deal before free agency opens..

Gregg Williams said his defense will treat this offseason like the first one when he came to Washington 3 years ago assessing everything in terms of scheme and personnel.. He says he believes he has the core group of players he could win with and that he hopes that his staff will remain in tact.. Asked directly about why Adam Archuletta played sparingly on defense this year, Williams declined to comment only to say that he hopes Archuletta returns next season.. Williams said there is no quick fix for the defense and that the staff would use the month of January to discuss what they can and will do to get the direction back.. His team barely avoided allowing the most yards in franchise history in a single season..

Injuries: CB Ade Jimoh suffered a concussion on the opening kickoff of the second half and did not return.. LB Warrick Holdman injured his shoulder and di not return.. TE Todd Yoder bruised a knee, S Vernon Fox had a shoulder injury..
DE Phillip Daniels said he will undergo surgery to clean out both ankles later this week.. He will also have a procedure done to repair a torn ligament in his wrist.. Daniels said he kept the severity of his injuries secret through the year..

WR Brandon Lloyd had bronchitis and was inactive for the game.. he ended his first season with 23 catches and no touchdowns..

Asked if Jason Campbell was his starter for next season, Joe Gibbs said Yes..

Asked about the double pass interference call during the game, Williams said “I can’t comment because I don’t want to be fined.”

The players will have a final team meeting tomorrow and then begin their off season.. Joe Gibbs will hold a final press conference on Monday..
