Back under the Bright Lights for a Beltway Battle!

After a THOROUGHLY forgettable trip to Cleveland ~~ another loss marred by sloppy play, dropped balls and questionable clock management ~~ our Redskins find themselves facing an early season crisis as the neighbors from Baltimore come calling. The Ravens lost to the previously winless Chiefs on Monday Night, giving up a big running game to Priest Holmes. Clinton Portis is the same style of running back, so perhaps the same kind of performance could be in the cards for the Burgundy & Gold. QB Mark Brunell needs a strong performance to silence the critics who are calling for Patrick Ramsey to be given the ball. But the first big change needs to be one of cutting down drastically on the penalties…..3rd and 2 is a lot different from 3rd and7! If we can just start playing the kind of football we know Coach Gibbs is capable of coaching, we can start grinding out some wins and get right back in this fight. This will be a Sunday Night game on national TV, so all the league will be watching. Hopefully, our Redskins can pull it together and play up to their talent level!

BURGUNDY & GOLD FANTASY FOOTBALL LEAGUE ~ UPDATE ~ WEEK 4

The same parity that is prevalent in the NFL is also alive and well in Fantasy Football. After four weeks of play, only one team in the Burgundy & Gold Fantasy League is really pulling away.

Game Over (Danny Zegan, owner) remains unbeaten with a Monday Night comeback, fueled by Priest Holmes' big night, to defeat the Unsung Heroes (John Domin, owner).

The resurgence of Primetime (Rodney Twyman, owner) continued their winning ways, topping previously unbeaten Jerry's 421 (Mary Priddy, owner) with a huge game from Tiki Barber.

K.D.I. (Chad Costa /Scott Howerton, owners) held on to beat the injury-depleted Calley's Allstars (John Priddy, owner) even though Calley's Allstars made a charge Monday Night on the leg of Chiefs' kicker Lawrence Tynes.

HellFish (Matt Goldie, owner) endured one of the worst wide receiver weeks in memory as he fell to 70-Chip (Kenn Jackson, owner), who is fixing to have to worry about Brett Favre's concussion and Jamal Lewis' court situation.

Closest Game of The Week AGAIN, the Redskins (Linda Domin, owner) once more rode the magic arm of Donovan McNabb to top TDsnDC (Carl Murphy, owner) to win the weekly high point total!

Standings:

Burgundy Conference Gold Conference
Redskins . . . . . . 2-2 Game Over . . . . . 4-0
TDsnDC . . . . . . 2-2 Primetime . . . . . . 3-3
K.D.I. . . . . . . . . 2-2 Jerry's 421 . . . . . 3-1
Calleys Allstars . .1-3 70-Chip . . . . . . . 2-2
Hellfish. . . . . . . . 1-3 Unsung Heroes . . 0-4
