Redskins Advance

What’s that you hear? Is that the sound of a jubilant Washington? It is! The Redskins beat the Bucs, 17-10. This means Mayor Williams won six cuban sandwiches from the Tampa Bay mayor as part of the victory. All that money spent on a flashy offense, and it was the defense that won this game. Arrington’s interception set up a short TD for Clinton Portis. That, with Sean Taylor’s fumble return for a TD made up the lion’s share of the scoring for the ‘Skins.

In fact, the ‘Skins lackluster offense was slumping pretty hard: Mark Brunell was a whopping 7/15 with a piddling 41 passing yard, while Clinton Portis only racked up 51 yards. This has got to change next week in Seattle. Hasselbeck and the Seahawks represent a formidable challenge, as they have an offensive that makes the Bucs look like a Division III squad. That’s going to make for a real challenge to the ‘Skins.

    Better to win ugly than to lose pretty. Yes, in many ways they didn’t deserve it, but think of it this way-how many bad bounces, lousy calls, replay reviews etc. haven’t gone their way in the last 12 years. They have been due for a while. 6-0 with the white on white unis! GO SKINS!!
