Redskins/Texans: Random Thoughts

I don’t want to hear about “silver linings” or “bright sides” of this loss…bullshit. The Redskins were up by 17 with 18 minutes to play and blew it. There’s nothing good about losing at home in that manner. 6-10 or 4-12 teams look at the “bright sides” of losing, is that what this team is? No, I don’t believe they are, so I don’t see “silver linings”.

The Redskins gave up 174 yards in those final 18 minutes and 526 yards in the game. The Redskins D is now dead last in the NFL, allowing 453 yards per game. Any “silver linings” that? Hell no, that’s a problem.

While the defense couldn’t hold the lead the offense did nothing to help the situation. 3 out of 4 drives in the 4th quarter resulted in 3 and outs. The Redskins lost a total of 24 yards on those 3 drives.

The Redskins rushed for 18 yards on 17 carries and the running backs now have 98 yards rushing in 2 games on 37 carries. NO MORE Larry Johnson, please and thank you.

Hey Fred Davis you want to chip that guy on the FG attempt, no? I’d take an Alex Barron hold as opposed to ignoring the guy making a B-line towards the kicker.

I will always appreciate the way Clinton Portis plays the game, see above.

Thank you Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan for Donovan McNabb. D.C. hasn’t seen a player like him at QB in 20 or 30 years.

It’s never a good thing when your top tacklers are your safeties and corners. I don’t care if you’re running a 3-4, a 4-3 or something we’ve never heard of. DeAngelo Hall is on pace for 176 tackles, DeAngelo Hall doesn’t tackle people.

Laron Landry was all over the place again and thru 2 games he’s one of the best defensive players in the league, seriously.

I never realized how excited I could actually be to welcome back Kareem Moore. I heart Reed Doughty, he’s a great special teams player and supports the run well, but he just can’t cover.

I can’t remember the last time the Redskins had a 17 point lead, maybe they just forgot what to do when you have one.

Please let Trent Williams be ok.

Cheers and Hail
