I'm still trying to articulate what the hell happened in this game. The Redskins came out as flat as I can ever remember offensively (despite consistently amazing field position). The first 7 drives for the Skins went as follows:
1- Hicks holding penalty kills drive. Punt.
2- Armstrong and Cooley both have key drops. Punt.
3- McNabb pick-6.
4- Briggs gets knocked out of game. TD pass to Moss.
5- Nice catch by Armstrong to set up a Gano FG.
6- 3 and out.
7- 3 and out.
8- 3 and out.
And then the second half started. Fumbles, picks, the only missing was a Chicago Bear ride across the field on a unicycle and helicopter hat. It was very clear who the key contributors were on this defense. Hall aside, Haynesworth played to his Pro-Bowl form. Despite McNabb's porous 56.8 QB rating (only 2 better than Cutler), he still is easily the leader on this team. Is there any doubt Mike Martz's career as a coach is likely over?
