Washington defensive backs coach Jimmy Lake spoke with reporters earlier this afternoon, and he was very careful to direct each of his answers to questions about Marcus Peters (and his reported suspension) back to the position group as a whole.

Would have been really nice if we would have cashed in on those four interceptions that we dropped, which would have stopped those drives. But give Eastern a lot of credit. We said it going in. we knew it was going to be a dog fight.

And that quarterback, he’s a hell of a football player. It’s fun to – not fun, but it was good to get through a game like that where there were mistakes made, we can correct those mistakes through a victory, and now we’ve just got to move on and focus on getting better, just like we do every week.” Read more »
