Redskins Red Zone Review at the BYE

Sooo, how was everyone's week off? As the Redskins get back to practicing today, motivation has to be at an all time low. It's about at this time we start hearing all the interviews from Redskins Park. "I'm still motivated, after all it's a job."

It's safe to say that the Redskins will look quite different next year. Chris Samuels, an anchor on the left side and the longest tenured Redskin will be gone, and Jim Zorn and Sherman Smith are likely to see pink slips. It would be surprising to me if Blache stuck around given everything he's been through this season as well.

Coming off a much needed break from all the negativity, the Redskins face a tough opponent with a trip down to visit the red hot Falcons. With Zorn getting two weeks to prepare, I still don't feel much better for the Skins chances in pulling an upset. We'll post a game thread tonight so we can follow the action and discuss how to best match-up with Atlanta.

Even though the Skins went 2-3 in the red zone against the Giants and Eagles, two of them (one in each game) were late TDs when the game was already out of reach. Either way though, it's a glimmer of hope that they can punch it in.
