When last we left Cortland Finnegan in Tennessee, he was mixing it up with Andre Johnson. Now that he’s in St. Louis, he still hasn’t learned his lesson and it’s paying dividends.
Finnegan not only snagged the honors of being responsible for RGIII's first NFL interception, but he riled Redskins receiver, Josh Morgan, up so much that he basically cost Washington the game, thus being responsible for RGIII’s first NFL loss as well.

With the Redskins trailing 31-28, Morgan caught a third-down pass and was short of the first down at the Rams’ 29-yard line, but the 7 yards Morgan picked up should have helped Billy Cundiff’s chance at a game-tying field goal. Then Morgan had a brain lock for the ages. 
Cortland Finnegan, Rams cornerback and professional agitator, gave Morgan a little shove at the end of the play. Morgan inexplicably threw the ball at Finnegan in retaliation. There are certain things an official can let slide in the heat of the moment, especially when he knows a penalty will decide the game, but there’s no way an official is going to ignore a player chucking a ball at an opponent after the play. 
The flag was worth 15 yards and suddenly the Redskins faced fourth-and-16. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan - whose doghouse door opened up the moment Morgan wound up and fired at Finnegan - decided to let Cundiff try a 62-yard field goal rather than go for it with 1:18 left. It was well short and wide right, and the Rams killed the clock with a couple plays out of victory formation.

  14. tommydesanto said: i’m a redskins fan. i’ll preface this comment by saying that the result of this game was a culmination of four quarters, not just one final field goal. that said, cortland finnegan is classless. smacking a player to rouse him is shitty behavior.
