Sorry for the delay on this Blog people, but im back. The delay must be from the fact that the Redskins lost on sunday to the Rams. Its crazy how a football game on a sunday can effect your whole outlook on a week. Anyways, needless to say I did wake up a little disturbed on Monday morning. The Redskins rolled into week two on a little bit of a high. I mean you had RGIII's impressive Rookie debut and you beat a team that really no one expected you to keep up with. Needless to say Redskin nation was in full effect going into sunday's game against the Rams.
The Redskins started off continuing to perfect what they finished last week. Basically controlling the first three quarters of the game and then they let the Rams come back. Mind you there were some quuestionable calls by the refs. I do not know what's worse a player lockout or a referree lockout. The calls they should make are no brainers, which they should make and the calls that they make can make no sense. These interim referees have shown that its going to be a long season. anywho, im going to redirect my tirant back to the Redskins. Its obvious that you have the game in the palm of your hands and you let a team like the Rams sneak right back into it. In the NFL you must not only get a lead you must sustain it and the Redskins did not do that.
The Redskins have been known for unraveling and I hope this is not a preview of what is to come this season. Im looking for the Redskins to be consistant for once and competitive for once. Games like this do not prove any of those adjectives to be true at all. Ok so once you get over the fact that they let the Rams back into the game they have a chance to still win the game despite their faults and someone makes an untimely penalty.
I understand that football is a very emotional sport. Personally, I tell people all the time I do not see how anyone can go into a football stadium and feel absolutely nothing. Its too much electricity in the sport that eventually it just takes over you. However,with that said with your team a field goal away from a win a misorderly conduct call is something that is just unacceptable. You have to have beeter judgement than that. Josh Morgan has to keep a level head. Instead of a field goal in possible field goal range for Cundiff you push him back to a spot, which from the beginning looked like a no brainer that he would miss. That field goal didnt stand a chance thats for sure.
Ok so the Redskins lost. However, the kicker doesn't just go for sunday it goes for overall. The defense takes a HUGE blow with the injuries of Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker.Its not like they will be gone for a week or so were talkin the season. The lost of Orakpo is seriously going to hurt the Redskin defensive front. I mean this is a guy coming into this game had one sack in two games and led the Redskins in sacks a year ago.
With a sigh I only hope that this doesnt mean things will get worse. Quite frankly im sick of the same sob story every year. Ultimately, I hope it isnt time to throw in the towel when it comes to the Redskins and its only week 2. Come on guys stay aggressive and level headed and you shall prevail. Redskin nation im lookin for a comeback against the Bucs in week 3.
Until next sunday im signing off as aggitated :/
