REDSKINS Bye ~ Week #7
BURGUNDY & GOLD FAN CLUB

***********************************************************************
A VICTORY FOR THE BYE WEEK
In Spite Of The Passing Game


Our Redskins ended the first half of their season with a road win in the Windy City on the shoulders of the defense and the legs of Clinton Portis. The defense allowed only a field goal, and Portis showed us the reason we traded for him by rushing for 171 hard-fought yards in the 13 - 10 victory, which wasn't sealed until rookie Safety Sean Taylor intercepted a Jonathan Quinn pass late in the 4th quarter. Taylor seems to be getting more comfortable on the field, as he also showed great technique on a huge 4th quarter sack. QB Mark Brunell was simply atrocious, as usual, but the strengths in other facets of our game saved the day.

The bye week comes at a good time as we have some injuries that need to heal ~ LaVar Arrington, John Hall and Michael Barrow ~ and some questions that need to be addressed, such as our lack of any semblance of a passing game! So we get this week off to watch the Packers pound the Cowboys at Lambeau Field!

BURGUNDY & GOLD FANTASY FOOTBALL LEAGUE ~ UPDATE ~ WEEK 6

The "Bye Week Monster" again affected games this week!

The Redskins (Linda Domin, owner) missed the Baltimore Defense, but still managed to pull out a tie with Calley's Allstars (John Priddy, owner) with a spectacular Monday Night performance from WR Michael Clayton. However, Calley's Allstars was awarded the victory using the tiebreaker of non-starter points.

Another Monday Night comeback fell painfully short as Marc Bulger and Michael Pittman ran out of time for Hellfish (Matt Goldie, owner) as they lost to K.D.I. (Chad Costa/Scott Howerton, owners) with a score of 113.9 to 114.1!

The other games weren't nearly as close, but are worthy of interest nonetheless.

Unsung Heroes (John Domin, owner) finally got off the Schneid with a HUGH showing from Byron Leftwich to beat Primetime (Rodney Twyman, owner), who was missing Peyton Manning to a bye week.

Game Over (Danny Zegan, owner) got his runningback stable back from bye and beat 70-Chip (Kenn Jackson, owner), who was hurting from missing Jamal Lewis to a bye and a suspension, and Jeremy Shockey to a bye.


High Score of the Week: TDsnDC (Carl Murphy, owner) rode the absolutely insane numbers of Daunte Culpepper to a 150.1 to 117.8 victory over Jerry's 421 (Mary Priddy, owner).
