Recap: Redskins Defeat Titans in Body Bag Game 2

New, comments

Wow. I just don't know what to say. Are the Redskins a good team or the Titans that bad? One thing is certain, this team has heart. Many of the Redskins on twitter were very outspoken that they never gave up in the Monday Night Massacre last week, and that same drive showed today.The 40 minutes in time possession assures you that you'll always be in the game. 50% 3rd down conversion is another huge stat. I couldn't have been the only one yelling in Seinfeld Kramer voice "Russssstttyyy!" every time the Titans Offense took the field. Was I the only one surprised that the Titans fans were cheering when Vince Young went out of the game?

The injuries: Portis, Rabach, Dockery, Anderson Russell, Kedric Golston, Lorenzo Alexander, and Chad Simpson. In case you were wondering, Logan Paulsen was next to come in at OL. The Titans DLine is ranked in the top 5 in sacks coming into this week, yet the make shift OLine looked pretty solid. Heyer at Right Guard made some great plays.
