(Battling a demon virus this week so the game preview is abbreviated.)
Robbie Gould let the wind out of the sails of Bears fans last Sunday, shanking a game-winning chip shot worse than early 2015 Tiger Woods. But I’d expect the crowd to be fired up for the Redskins Sunday – a team that desperately needs the game.
THE GAME POEM
On the last bar stool to the left he sat,
For fifteen years in an orange and blue hat
A power lifter and reverend to his right,
And an endless amount of draught Coors Light
Fifteen years goes by in a blink
With the same stool, same people, same drink
Yesterday it was a title he’d choose
Now he’d like em to win as many as they lose
THOUGHTS ON THE WASHINGTON REDSKINS
- Washington is every bit as bad a road team as San Francisco, losing all five of their road games by a combined 162-86.
- Injuries across the defensive front (Stephen Paea, Jason Hatcher…etc) have severely limited the Redskins pass rush. On Monday night against the wretched Matt Cassel the ‘Skins managed just a single sack and (by my count) no additional hits. If they couldn’t muster a rush in that must-win, prime time affair, you’d have to be surprised to see them come after Cutler consistently Sunday.
- Kirk Cousins at home and Kirk Cousins on the road are vastly different individuals.
A THOUGHT ON THE NAME “REDSKINS”
It’s a football team. Why not just change it? Seriously, who gives a shit? I find the whole idea of these teams having mascots at all ridiculous. Oh, it’s the Chicago BEARS! They’re a bunch of a guys. Why are they bears?
