San Francisco Treat
Don’t get it twisted, the Redskins were supposed to do this to San Francisco (though I admit, I never expected so many points). When you’re a good team you’re supposed to beat the inferior teams. All Washington did yesterday was handle their bidness against a team that appears rudderless on offense and like swiss cheese on defense. Yesterday it looked like USC vs. Prairie View A&M out there and every moment was enjoyable for a Redskins fan.
That said, next week is a trip to The Meadowlands to face off against the Giants. Eli Manning rescued the Giants from defeat against Denver with a roll-out (more like roll away) TD pass in the dying moments of the game to give the G-men a 1 point victory. Giants/Redskins. Should be a good one.
The Philadelphia Eagles pulled out a sort of miracle against the Chargers at The Linc with their special teams making the big play. I’d left to take the dogs to pee and came back and saw the score had changed and Philly led. “What the…” I said in Deep Cover’s direction, which prompted him to explain. Evidently he knew exactly what befuddled me.
Dallas. Oh Dallas. Seattle didn’t win that game. You lost it. You had the ball, a little time on the clock, and you blew it. Drew Bledsoe threw an absolutely wretched looking interception to a Seahawks DB who was absolutely wide open. Problem is, you’re NOT SUPPOSED TO THROW TO THE DB’s – in case you didn’t know, Drew. Thanks, Seattle. You made an already enjoyable Sunday that much better.
