Seems like every game we play, no matter the opposing record, we let them into the game. Now, it would take a lot of help to us into the playoffs.
The season is over.
We have to look to the future.
I think there is no problem putting Todd Collins or Colt Brennan in at this point. We need to stop the bleeding. Jason Campbell could not even beat the Bengals defense. I know people are going to say Campbell had a good game. I expect Craig to say it was promising. No disrespect to you guys, but be serious: It is over.
Start Brennan. Put Devin Thomas or Malcom Kelly in at second wide receiver, and Randle El in the slot. Fred Davis showed he has a future in the NFL—maybe start running two-tight end sets.
I would love to see the Redskins look to the future now.
I mean now.
Secondly, when Gregg Williams went to Jacksonville, the Jaguars probably thought Williams would make them better. But we realized that it is the Redskins defensive players, not the coach, which makes them good.
Greg Blache comes in and we didn't drop a beat...but we don't create turnovers now, and we haven't gotten sacks.
Maybe, just maybe, it's not Jason or Andre, but maybe it's the plays. I would love to see a genius come to Washington to cook up some exotic blitzes. Danny boy forks out money but, not to a good defensive coach.
So I think that we should fire Blache and find a genius that can give us what all other NFC East defenses have. Maybe a 3-4 defense would help.
What can go wrong, a loss? Wow, Jason and Zorn have seven of those already.
Look to the future and put the young guns in.
I could be wrong, but why not? Just start to think that we haven't gotten past 10-6 or 9-7 in a long time. We should start to rebuild this historic franchise, because this year and last year, we have seen the injuries mount because of our age. We are one of the oldest teams in the NFL right now.
I may just be a teenager looking for electrifying plays and a good team that needs to get back to winning.
Or just a fan who knows nothing.
