Week 16: Redskins 20, Jaguars 17: Knee Jerk Reactions

The Redskin's season is almost mercifully over! Before I let rationality cloud my judgment, here are my knee-jerk reactions from the penultimate game of the season:

This seriously felt like a preseason game until the 4th quarter. The Skins were playing almost all backups, and the Jags were missing MJD and a few other guys. There just wasn't an intensity today, which is odd when you have so many guys playing for their future in the league.

I know this win hurts our draft position and thus may bad in the long term, but you can't help but think this group needed a W with all the drama going around.

  • Sex Cannon's record as a starter in the state of Florida counting his college days has got to be something like 47-2.
  • The gator chomp? Rex, seriously?
  • Brandon Banks in the wildcat should be the focus of our offense next week. It would keep my interest and get the Banks Pro Bowl train back at full speed.
  • Kevin Barnes at safety could merely be necessity, but also maybe a sign the teams doesn't think he will be a decent corner.
  • The Jags look awful, how are they a potential division winner?
  • Speaking of the opposition, maybe the Skins should take a page out of their book and spend our first 2 picks on o-linemen.
  • Anthony Bryant may have played himself onto the roster for next season.
  • Casey Rabach needs to go ASAP.
  • Going for it on 4th and 1 from the 1 yard line with the game on the line is the right call. Not only is it statistically the right move, but we are 5-9, so who cares! 
  • Joe Joseph? As in Joseph Joseph? Wow.
  • The o-line was not awful today, but not great. Hicks and Dockery/Licht*&#$& all still need to be replaced.
  • We are no 4-4 on the road, and 2-5 at home, hmmmm. Almost makes me feel guilty for never going to games...
