I'm torn. Part of me wants to see the team come out gun ablazin and torch the Dolphins. But the other part of me wants to see the team put up a good fight, but lose so we move into the lead for the #1 pick.
Versus the patriots our defense did pretty well I thought. Lots of pressure on Brady and some good hitting as well. Unfortunately our offense gave them two easy scores with an interception and a fumble both inside our own 20 yard line.
Our offense, especially the line is our Achilles heel now. Anytime we do manage to move the ball there is a holding penalty or a complete breakdown for a sack that puts us into third and long. I do believe Callahan is right, we need to commit to the run. Even if we only get 2 yards per carry that would still be 3rd and 6 instead of 3rd and 15. Run plays should cut the penalties way down....should.
I predict this will be a solid outing for us finally. Redskins win 21-10
Redskin player "You take it" Dolphin player "No. I don't want it you take it!" Redskins player "You touched it last, it's yours. Pick it up." Dolphins player. "Nope. Not gonna happen.It's all yours" ....live ball sits at the 50 yard line for 15 minutes and that is the end of the 1st quarter. Redskins 0, Dolphins 0.
Was that the game Westbrook threw his helmet on the field which led to the penalty to take us out of game winning FG range?
Yes. And the Gus Ferrotte head butt game. I was wrong though, that was prior to Snyder. Still a dreadful game to watch.
I found a link to the WP article, and that game had over 75,000 fans, and I'm willing to bet most of them were Redskins fans.
That was a game that, had the Redskins won, would've put them in the playoffs that year. Typical Norv Turner performance. And of course, after that 8-7-1 year (very Gruden-esque), Norv started 1998 0-7 or something like that, before finishing 6-10. He only kept his job in 1999 because of the change of ownership that occurred too late into the offseason to make a coaching change.
LavaLavaLenny: Has the mayor of DC set a date and time for the parade yet?

rskin72: We showed up for 3 quarters today

rskin72: Thank God we kept AP and not Perine

RUsknFan: We desperately need one of the Sims or Quinn or Richardson to show up--and it's imperative that CT isn't seriously injured.

RUsknFan: I mean imagine if McLaurin was like a normal 3rd round receiver who needed to develop...

rskin72: Yea....someone not named McClarin

RUsknFan: Great win guys. I know it was against Miami, and I know we won by the skin of our teeth, but we looked like a different team today--a professional outfit. Not one Oline penalty.

rskin72: Well we won....but definitely no higher expectations for more wins than I already had
