HAIL REDSKINS FANS! 

      

Webster's Dictionary has 3 definitions for "Hangover"  . . . .

. . . . . one of which is, “any aftermath of or lingering effect from a distressing experience.”  Distressing experience ‑ ‑  that pretty much sums up the Thanksgiving Day game and Sunday vs. the Cardinals.  Immediately following Arizona’s – what seemed like a 5 hour 43 play – opening drive, I texted my brother and said we looked sluggish and it was going to be a long afternoon . . . sadly, for only the 5th time in my life, I was right.

 

First, let me once again say, Kirk Cousins is our long‑term answer at QB. He can make any throw, and has great touch on the deep ball.  Where he is also deadly is off the play action.  If we ever commit to the run long enough to keep Defenses guessing, he will be an MVP candidate.  With opponents not respecting our running game – 38 passing to 17 running plays Sunday – and playing to stop the pass, Cousins still comes through.  I bring this up because I read a very interesting story about how well‑positioned the Skins are salary cap wise for next season.  My hope is that Scot, Bruce and Danny recognize it all starts with a great QB and then smartly open the checkbook and lock Captain Kirk in for the foreseeable future.  He wasn’t the reason we lost on Sunday.  We lost because of execution – or a lack thereof – and the Cardinals have the #1 ranked defense in football. And based on Sunday, I believe the old saying that defenses wins championships.

 

In my opinion, the game was decided on three plays, all made by the Cardinals’ defense:  the strip sack that set up their short TD drive; the INT at the end of the game; and third and goal at their 1.  We had 3 tries from the 1 and couldn’t punch it in!  Our Defense has some great players, but we need help on the Defensive side of the ball if we’re going to compete.  In the last 7 games – going back to the Philly game – our Defense has only 3 takeaways.  Arizona only has 2 weapons on Offense – Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson – and they accounted for 19 of Carson Palmer’s 30 completions!  How do you not have a defensive scheme that doesn’t double or triple cover these guys and make someone else beat you?!  And I like Josh Norman, but I can’t help but wonder if maybe he kept his mouth closed a bit more about the referees, Fitzgerald doesn’t get that third down call with the Skins down by only 1 point.  But with Fitzgerald being, deservedly, a respected player, and Norman being, well, Mr. Motormouth, it seemed the ref was talked into the call.  Just my two cents….

 

This week we’re on the road, for the third straight week, to take on Philadelphia.  Since we saw them last, the Eagles have only gone 2-6.  Fun fact:  for the second week in a row, the Skins will play against a QB named Carson.  Wentz started the season on a tear, but lately has been playing like a rookie.  In the first meeting, our Defense was able to sack him 5 times, so hopefully we can come close to repeating that feat.  Philly relies heavily on the pass.  Their leading rusher only has 420 yards for the entire season, with a high water mark for yards of 77, against Cleveland.  If we can pressure Wentz, and prevent the big plays, we should hold their offense in check.  I like our Offense against most defenses, and certainly against a Philly defense that gives up an average of 29 points per game.

 

Apparently, Coach Gruden chewed out the entire team following Sunday’s game, so loudly that the press could hear him, word for word, BEFORE the press was allowed into the locker room.  Hopefully he got through to them, or next week my hangover definition will be


” the disagreeable physical aftereffects of drunkenness, such as a headache or stomach disorder, usually felt several hours after cessation of drinking."

                                                       


             HAIL!
