HAIL REDSKINS FANS! 

                              

DON'T THINK LESS OF ME . . . . .

. . . . but, I must admit that I turned the game off midway through the 3rd quarter, after my long-suffering spouse asked if I’d rather:  A) stay and watch the rest of the game; or B) go grocery shopping.  For those of you who know me, you know I’d rather jump naked into a swimming pool filled with double edged razor blades than grocery shop, but I happily chose and never looked back.

 So, given that I didn’t watch the entire game, and when I Googled “Redskin Week 11 Highlights” the response came back “there weren’t any . . . ” I’ve decided to turn this week’s column over to a guest author - - Please welcome Redskin Great, Mr. Brian Mitchell, who now has the depressing job of covering the Burgundy & Gold for CSN Washington:

 "Embarrassing, this is atrocious.  It's despicable.  It's pathetic.  I think it's asinine.  As we look at this football game and this football team -- and it's not just Robert, OK, I want fans out there to stop blaming just the quarterback.  The defense was atrocious; the offensive line was terrible, dropping balls, throwing balls to people.  Everybody had a part in this.  There are players that, they can't play themselves into the right position. We sit here every week and we want to blame that one guy.  Yes, they gave up a lot for him, but from coaching, to decision-makers, to players, everybody is playing a part....

 "I see a lot of players blaming media and everybody else, and running around as if they've won the damn Super Bowl somewhere.  This team has sucked over the last few years, OK?  And as a former player, I'm embarrassed to watch this junk, over and over again.  And yes, I come on this air and I have to try and be professional and not say what -- I wish, let the FCC tell me today, 'Say what the hell you want to say, Brian.' And I will call out names and tell them exactly what I feel.  Because a lot of guys who want to be big time and talking about what they think and what the media shouldn't be doing, play some damn football.  You sucked on the field today, and you know who you are.  I don't have to say their names.  You know who you are."

 Thank you, Brian, for that candid and colorful insight.  I must say I agree with every word.

 This week, our beloved team travels to SF to take on a 49ers team with almost as much off-the-field baggage as the B&G.  Last week the Niners barely escaped the Giants 16-10, with Eli throwing 5 INTS.  But SF’s Defense is healthy and getting players’ back, so I think it will be another long afternoon for our Skins.

 And with a fully stocked pantry…I’ll have to watch the entire game….

  

                                                                                    HAIL!!!
