The Washington Redskins should be thanking 8-pound, 6-ounce baby Jesus that they escaped Los Angeles with a win against the Rams last Sunday (even though there was no reason that should’ve ended up being a close game)
After an amazing Week 2, I’m back for more of the same (hopefully). So let’s get to it.
On January 9th, 2014, the Washington Redskins hired Jay Gruden to succeed Mike Shanahan as head coach. Gruden, a sought-after coach, cut his teeth through the coaching ranks to finally step out of his brother’s shadow.
After an understandably mediocre 7-8 record Week 1, I’m back for more punishment. This time should be better, because … well … I’m just grasping here.
If NFL Week 1 hot takes, Super Bowl proclamations, and panicking football fans were unwelcome relatives, candy, and nuts, then oh what a Christmas we’d have.
Remember when we were all comforting ourselves with ideas like “it’s just the preseason” and “the coaching staff is deliberately keeping things vanilla” and “it’s way too early to hit the panic button?”
The 2016 Washington Redskins defense was nothing short of bad. And that’s probably the single nicest way to describe the Joe Barry-led group.
Every year, I try to predict games based on what I know. Most of the time I don’t really know what I’m talking about.
With all due to respect to Andy Williams: tomorrow brings the advent of the most wonderful time of the year. Football season is back, baby.
In case you’re wondering whether i’m excited for the upcoming fantasy football season, I hope then next NINE THOUSAND words — it’s actually a bit more than that, but I just rounded down to make it a (startlingly) clean number — will answer that question for you.
