HAIL REDSKINS FANS! 

Something Finally Clicked With Me this Weekend . . . . .

We’re a bad football team . . . very bad football team, and I don’t see things turning around anytime soon.  I realize this statement is right up there with “water is wet” and “liver is gross,” but as someone who has been a fanatic follower of this team for 42 - - yes, I said 42 years - - sometimes I view the world thru Burgundy and Gold colored glasses.  After Cousins’ third interception, of the 4th quarter, the glasses came off!

 

They say it takes a big person to admit they’re wrong, and since few are bigger than me, let me publicly admit I was wrong about Cousins.  At this point in his career, he is NOT NFL starting QB material.  QBs can’t let the pressure get to them, and Cousins goes color blind when he hears defensive footsteps or the ticking of a 4th quarter clock.  On paper, we have the tools for one of the best offenses in the league, but until we have a QB in place who can stay healthy and execute Gruden’s game plan, we’re in for more games like Sunday.  RG3 is participating in certain drills this week, so he may be back under center soon.

 

My hope is Gruden doesn’t let is loyalty to Haslett cloud his thinking when he reviews the coaching staff at season’s end.  I understand our secondary has been hit by injuries - - quick question, is Tracy Porter EVER going to suit up this year? - - but our front seven has remained relatively healthy, and we haven’t been able to generate a pass rush all season.  Fast and elusive aren’t terms used to describe Carson Palmer, and yet he was only touched 6 times on Sunday, even though he dropped back to pass 44 times.  And this was after missing the past 4 weeks due to injury.  You know I would rather perform dental surgery on myself than say something positive about Dallas, but look at the improvement in their defense just by making a coordinator change.  Haslett must go at season’s end.

 

And, was anyone else a little put off by Gruden’s lack of emotion on the Roberts’ fumble ruling?  I’m not saying go all big brother Chucky on the refs, but show your team you care - - who knows, maybe it lights a fire under them.

This Sunday we’re at home against a Tennessee team that had to hold on to beat Jacksonville, 16-14.  On paper we should win this game easily, but as we’ve learned, on paper means zippity-doo-dah.

 

And I’d like to give a shout out to Kenn on his well-written, well timed and needed message.  It’s going to be a long season folks (and a longer off-season if Dallas continues to win), and we must stick together.  And, no we aren’t Philly.

 

Win or lose, I will be watching in my #87 Jerry Smith jersey, cheering til I am hoarse, hopefully for another 42 years!

 

         HAIL!!!
