THE ROLLER COASTER ENDED UP FUN AFTER ALL!

 

On a day that started with a bizarre pre-game collision that took out two starters, it’s only fitting that the rest of Sunday’s game followed suit with 3 hours of craziness.  Safety Brandon Merriweather reinjured his knee and knocked out WR Aldrick Robinson during warm-ups, and they were missed on both sides of the ball - - especially Merriweather, who has yet to make his debut in Burgundy & Gold.  His presence was needed after the opportunistic Redskins jumped out to a 21-3 lead, but then the Defense started their swoon, and kicker Billy Cundiff started missing field goals . . . again . . . and again . . . and again.  But even after our Redskins surrendered the lead for the first time with less than 2 minutes to go, we all knew that since we now have a REAL Quarterback in RGIII, we are never out of it.  And the soon to be Rookie of the Year did not disappoint, driving down the field to set up for the winning field goal with less than 5 seconds left.  All in all, very exciting, but way more exciting than it should have been!

That was the Bucs.  This week - - NOT the Bucs.  The high-flying Falcons come to FedEx Field as one of the few remaining unbeaten teams in the NFL.  With the best 1 -2 punch WR Combo in the league in Roddy White and Julio Jones, a quality veteran TE in Tony Gonzalez, and an excellent QB in Matt Ryan, the Falcons are going to be a SEVERE test for our Defense.  Our Cornerbacks will have to play better, and we will need a stronger effort from our Safeties as well, if we hope to slow down the Atlanta Offense at all. It would help also, though, if our Defensive Coordinator, Jim Haslett, would pull his head out and realize that his “bend-don’t-break” game plan DOES NOT WORK!  

Overall, this is probably one of the tougher games we will have all year, but with RGIII, we ALWAYS have a chance!
