HAIL REDSKINS FANS! 

I Know I Should Have Been Happier . . . . .

…..after watching Forbath’s 4th FG of the day split the uprights, giving the Skins a 19-17 victory over Tennessee, but all I could muster was a loud “Yes!” as I changed the channel.  Gone was my victory lap around the house singing the fight song, my celebratory shot of Fireball and, most telling, my two dogs were still sitting beside me because my cheers weren’t loud enough to send them scurrying under the bed.  Don’t get me wrong, I am thrilled we won and watched every minute of the game, but this season has been hard to watch, win or lose.  And based on the volume of boos raining down as the team left the field at halftime, the home crowd feels the same.

 

Mercifully, Gruden pulled the plug on Project Cousins.  That little experiment was as ugly as me in a strapless gown.  The Offense looked completely different under McCoy in the second half.  No one believes Colt will supplant RG3 as the starter once he is healthy, but it was nice to see some familiar faces involved in the Offense again.  While DeSean Jackson is an absolute game breaker, Cousins had a tendency to lock in on him, and our Offense had become a series of -3 yard receptions as we waited for #11 to break off a 60 yard TD.  On Sunday, 6 different receivers had more than 3 receptions. Jordan Reed had a strong return with 5 catches for 54 yards; hopefully, he can stay healthy and provide another target.  But we all know for the B&G to be successful, Alfred needs more than the 18 carries he had on Sunday.  He has been a big Cowboy killer in the past, and hopefully that continues this week.

 

The good news is our Defense only gave up 17 points, but no one will ever accuse the Titans of being an offensive juggernaut, especially with a backup QB under center.  We still weren’t able to muster a pass rush – only 1 sack – and lost Brian Orakpo for the season with a torn pectoral.  This was probably Orakpo’s last game as he has repeatedly said he wants to be paid, and the Skins have too many holes to fill to overpay for a LB who can’t stay healthy.  On a positive note, Keenan Robinson was NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts!

 

But all will be right in the world if we can beat the “ripe-for-a-fall” Cowboys this week on MNF.  I realize those three letters – M N F – strike fear in the heart of Skins fans everywhere, but stranger things have happened.  Who could forget Santana Moss’ two late TD catches in 2005 to beat Dallas on MNF?  Good grief, even Heath Shuler…Heath Shuler…beat Dallas on a Monday Night!

 

I know we all feel the same … the next best thing to making the playoffs … making sure Dallas doesn’t!
