AFTER LAST SUNDAY . . .

 

I really don’t know what I can say to make anyone feel better, so hopefully positive clichés.com can offer some comfort:

 

·        The sharper the berry, the sweeter is the wine - Appropriate for me because I have been drinking since last Sunday.

 

·        Defeat is just a down payment for victory – If this is the result, we obviously need to raise our rates.

 

·        Failure is the backdoor to success – “Hey Mike, try the front door this week.”

 

·        There is a light at the end of the tunnelOf course it is an ambulance picking up another Redskin headed to IR.

 

·        It'll feel better when it stops hurtingIt’s been hurting since 1993.

 

And the one that best sums up our season to this point…

 

·        Doing stupid things certainly makes life more interesting – Insert any offensive play from the last four weeks.

 

We can’t dwell too much on the Miami game because it was a microcosm of the 2011 season.  Let’s face it - - we should be used to it by now.  Offensively, we moved the ball to some degree - - until we entered the red zone, and then either committed a costly penalty and had to settle for a FG, or we turned the ball over.  Defensively, we kept the game close until giving up the game-clinching TD late in the 4th quarter, after being on the field most of the afternoon.

 

But, in my eyes, the season can be saved if we can beat Dallas this weekend at Fed-Ex Field.  Dallas is riding high after beating Buffalo last week, and my hope is all the positive press will go to their heads and we have a repeat of the 2010 season opener.

I grant you it is the lesser of two evils, but I am pleased Rex will be getting the start.  He at least throws the ball down field, and the best half of football I ever saw Rex play was the second half of the game in Dallas last year.  Hopefully Tashard Choice will be playing with a massive chip on his shoulder, and can get the running game going to open up the passing lanes for Rex.  Defensively, we held Dallas without a TD in the first meeting, so there is no reason to think we can’t do it again.

 

I am old school and would consider a 2-14 season a success if the 2 wins were over the Cokeboys.  So here’s to the Redskins throwing out the records and playing with heart and pride in front of the home fans and beating the hated Cowboys!!
