Week 7: Eagles 27, 'Skins 10 - Knee Jerk Reactions

Football season is in full swing! The hair pulling, TV-screaming, remote control throwing and furious cigarette smoking is in full force. Before I let rationality cloud my judgment, here are my knee-jerk reactions from the seventh game of the season:

-4th and goal with 5 minutes to go. The snap doesn't even make it to Campbell. Mike Tirico says: "and that summarizes the Washington Redskins." Yes it does.

-Play-calling: not so bad, and obviously, not the problem. Jim Zorn, vindicated, sort of.

-Gruden was announcing like he wants the 'Skins job. Not a negative word, which is pretty telling considering how hard it is for every other human watching this game to not notice how bad they are.

-Jaws hates Campbell.

-I feel bad for Campbell. He has been absolutely brutalized physically, mentally, emotionally. Even so, he is better than half the starting QBs in the NFL. Just remember this fact when we're trotting out washed up re-treads for the next few seasons.

-Cooley done. Awesome.

-Devin Thomas and Fred Davis with receiving TDs and career highs!

-Malcolm Kelly with diddly poo!

-The only member of the secondary who didn't completely suck today was D******* Hall. Go figure.

-ARE should never, ever, ever return a punt in football, ever again. Talk about a momentum killing moment.

-Not that we ever had a chance, but why doesn't the offense show a little URGENCY and PACE in drives in the 4th quarter? This has been a problem for years and it drives me absolutely crazy.

-Every Redskins loss makes me more sad than I've ever been in my life, and every loss this season just gets sadder and sadder. That means, every time you see me after a Redskins game, that's the saddest day of my life.

  1. I have a few additional comments.

    -Jaws was miserable all night. Two things became apparent to me from the get go: he hasn't even seen footage of a single Skins game all year, and he sucks dick as a hobby.

    He actually tried to claim that DeAngelo Hall has been improving in EVERY facet of the game this year, I kid you not. What a fucking goon.

    When he started ogling over the Eagles' quarterback situation I was so disgusted I nearly pissed out of my asshole. He's a joke.

    -The first time the Redskins have had momentum all year, and Antwaan Randle-El killed it, like he has so many times before. I'm not sure what's preventing the coaching staff from finding a new punt returner. Oh, that's right, if we put Santana back there every time, he'll get hurt. Because punt returners ALWAYS get hurt. Right. I don't give a shit about his hammy at this point in the season. Show me some fucking speed on special teams.

    -Awesome that we passed up DeSean Jackson for...I don't even want to say it.

    -Jason Campbell is not better than half the quarterbacks in the league. Guys I'd rather have at this point over JC:

    Eli, Peyton, Rodgers, Brees, Schaub, Big Ben, Favre, Brady, Rivers, Romo, Mcnabb, Flacco, Warner, Ryan, Palmer, Orton, Cassel, Cutler, Kolb...and I'll even throw in Sanchez, Stafford, and fuck it, Shaun Hill.

    -Lack of execution > bad coaching.

  2. -If we'd picked DeSean Jackson, 3 things would have happened: a) everyone would have bitched that we still have no "big bodies" at wide receiver; b) he would have been an absolute bust, as every Redskins WR is, because we poison skill players; c) Devin Thomas would be a Pro Bowl receiver for the Eagles.

    -Agreed on Jaws

    -You would not rather have Cassel, Cutler, Kolb, Sanchez, or Shaun Hill (who just got benched for Alex motherfuckin Smith). So that puts Campbell in the top 18. Which is better than whatever schlub is going to fill in until we find the "real" franchize kewbie.


  3. losing Cooley was a killer

    now I guess a WR will have to try and actually get open now that we no longer have Chris to lean on
