**Pick Up The Pieces and Support Our Redskins**


Well, what can we say other than another year, another unsuccessful trip to Texas Stadium. Hopefully everyone had a good time tailgating before the game. I'm sorry I missed that part of the fun and games ..... a few "Bloody Jerrys" would have been great, but I am sure you upheld the high standard of partying that our tailgating is known for! The game itself was painful to endure ... ... 'nuff said! And I am sure you all endured your share of abuse on the long walk back to the parking lot ... ... been there done that! Hopefully we can improve our blocking enough to prevent Ramsey from getting killed before we get another shot at the Cowgirls in December.

This week we have an even steeper hill to climb with the Seattle Seahawks coming to Fed Ex Field. The Seahawks have a much more dangerous offense than Dallas, so our defense will be challenged more than last week. With Fred Smoot banged up, the (Matt) Hasselbeck-led offense will more than likely begin channeling the action his way, with receivers Darrell Jackson and Koren Robinson complementing the strong running of Shaun Alexander. But the defense played well on Sunday, so another strong performance could definitely be in the cards. However, the "soft-zone defense" could go away and not hurt my feelings too much! The offense cannot get any worse than it was this past Sunday, but we could start to get a few starters back, especially Trung. So with just a little bit of pass blocking, who knows what could happen. We are only at the halfway mark of the season, so there is still time to make a run ... ... and at the very least play some entertaining football! So come on out to Austin Avenue and watch some Redskins action with the Fans of the Burgundy and Gold! ..............by John Priddy
