It seems like an eternity since the Washington redskins last stepped on the field led by
Donovan McNabb Rex Grossman!? Our hearts collectively dropped as our fearless leader was benched for our biggest fear. We’ve spent the last two weeks in a depressive and sometimes hostile state with our team being scorched by the national media and our head coach seemingly fueling the fire.
Well the time has come and what’s done is done. This Monday night our Washington Redskins face off with the hated Pedophilia (sp?) Eagles. So it’s time to forget about the turmoil this team has trudged thru since our loss to the Lions and let’s get ready for what is sure to be a hard hitting grudge match between the two storied franchises.
Warning Blatant Homerism after jump, do not proceed unless you have consumed your daily supply of koolaid.
The eagles are undoubtedly still sour from the ass kicking we handed them in their house and maybe thinking they can come in here with their potent offense and nail down a win, unfortunately they forgot who’s swinging the hammer.
Despite the current low ranking, our defense is one of the scariest to play against in the whole league. Sure the eagles will get their yards, but they’ll wish they hadn’t. With the Dirty Thirty head hunting and D Hall Ball Hawking it’s gonna be a long day (or possibly a very short one if they decide to go over the middle) for Philly's undersized speedsters.
He’s a Bad Baadddd Man
Let’s not forget who forced Vick to run, prematurely ending his starting role last time we met. Haynesworth seems to be motivated and playing like an absolute force and I think he will have a field day imposing his will on the eagle’s front 5. A healthy, rested and motivated Haynesworth is going to be the difference maker come Monday night. On a national stage, Haynesworth will prove why he’s one of the most dominant interior defensive linemen in the league and while it may not be him putting up the numbers, his efforts will help our line backers get to Vick early and slow him before he can get into a rhythm.
Cheap shot I know, but look at that face... At the first site of the game slipping out of reach, with the Skins leading 10-3 Andy Reid does what he does best, abandons the running game and puts the game on the shoulders of his franchise QB
Donovan McNabb Kevin Kolb Michael Vick. Nearing the end of the half, 3rd and long a bruised and battered Vick makes an ill-advised throw along the sideline, only to be picked off and returned the other way for six by none other than Deangelo Hall. The Redskins go on to beat the Eagles 24-17.
