The McNabb contract made me the opposite of speechless, and that game was beyond words.
I wish I blacked out today. I will post more extensively on the horror that is the McNabb contract, but combining that 'thing' with the loss that puts us a longshot for the playoffs is a lot for one fan in one day. I know it was defensive issues that doomed this team tonight, but re-signing McNabb is basically committing to more of the same.
- Hey we held them under 600 yards. We can build on this!
- Through 3 quarters, Philly averaged 10.2 yards per play.
- What happened to the idea that good coaches thrive after a bye week?
- I couldn't wait to hear Matt Millen's take on the McNabb contract. I was giddy.
- 4-5 is one thing, another is that the Eagles and Giants are looking pretty good, and we likely will have to catch at least one of them to get in the playoffs.
- McNabb through 3 quarters, 75.2 qb rating. Nothing is changing. For 3 more years.
- Jerome Harrison was practically given away by Cleveland and is probably better than any RB on our roster.
- Is it beating a dead horse bringing up the Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly vs. DeSean Jackson point, right?
- I came up with a positive though for not drafting DeSean Jackson.Stay with me......we didn't draft him because we had Santana Moss, and didn't want 2 players with identical skill sets. Well, we likely wouldn't have given Brandon Banks a shot if Jackson was on the roster, and Banks is just about all that brings me Redskin joy these days. No counter-arguments please.
- I don't recall seeing FedEx that empty for a regular season game at any point.
- I guess the bright side is that the Eagles may be much better than most realize, they were Football Outsiders' #2 team coming into this week. They will be #1 for next week.
- The Skins were FO's #22 team. We will drop.
- To reiterate, the story is not just the Skins sucking, but the Eagles joining the Giants as too good for the Skins to past. We aren't making the playoffs.
- I guess Orakpo could've gotten hurt, so it could have been a worse day.
- Hey, Todd McShay's 1st mock draft is out! Offseason champions! Where's Herm Edwards?!? We can build on this!
