What . . . . . Me Worry?
The cover that has been draped over the new Redskins Offense all off-season was finally lifted Monday Night in front of a national TV audience, and while it had some shiny parts to it, the machine under the shine needs a little tune up. The motion and quick passes to the sides were interesting and DID get us into the Red Zone a number of times, which was a marked improvement over the 4 week debacle that was the Preseason. I would have liked to have seen more slants and quick outs that moved in a more vertical direction, but I WAS encouraged by the play of Antwaan Randle-El and the return of Clinton Portis. However, the end result of Field Goals instead of TDs and a missed field goal at the end of the game has put the Redskins in an early season quandry of NEEDING to win the Sunday Night match-up with the equally desperate Cowboys.
Offense was not the thing that kept me up into the wee hours of Tuesday
morning . . . it was the porous nature of the Defense.
It won’t be B-List guys we are going into battle against at Texas Stadium Sunday night with T.O., Jason Witten and Terry Glenn. With Owens wanting to endear himself to the Cowboy fans on Sunday Night, look for a celebration on the Star if he does score. Hopefully, Gregg Williams can use the film from Monday Night's disappointing performance as a building block to fix what was wrong, and we can deposit the Cowboys in our rear view mirror with a key divisional win and redeem ourselves in the eyes of the Nation. .....................................John Priddy
We plan to meet at Austin Avenue at 1:00 p.m. and carpool to the Stadium. If you have a Blue Parking Pass and extra room in your car, or if you need a ride, join us at Austin Avenue and we can put together carpools. We will be leaving Austin Avenue at approximately 1:30 p.m. to get on line at the Gate as early as possible!
