As we start the 2nd half of the back-to-back Perfect Football Weekend, we once again enlist the services of the He Ain’t All That & A Bag O’ Chips Department, which brings us yet more lamenting about the Washington REDSKINS, YOU FUCKING LIBERALS!!! slide into oblivion:
For the sixth time in the past seven seasons, the Washington Redskins will finish last in the NFC East division. With four wins against 11 losses, the team has little at stake in Sunday’s season finale against the playoff-bound Dallas Cowboys.
But unlike last season, when a poisoned relationship between then-Coach Mike Shanahan and quarterback Robert Griffin III undermined the Redskins, no single relationship or failing explained Washington’s futility on the field in 2014. Instead, a series of shortcomings proved insurmountable: injuries, instability at quarterback, poor discipline among players, ill-advised play calls and friction in the locker room, to name a few.
Such hurdles are routinely overcome by better NFL teams, but they proved too much in Washington, where losing has become ingrained in the environment of a once proud franchise.
You are encouraged, as our old frenemy Straight Up With Sherri used to say, to go read the rest.
For my part – how many times have I told anyone who would listen that The Second Coming Of The World’s Greatest Ever Quarterback Ever In The History Of Ever, Ever!!!!!, aka ARRRRRRRRRRR GEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE THREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!, that he wasn’t the greatest thing since sliced bread? That the only reason he is where he is right now is because of one game against an inexperienced TCU secondary playing its first game together? And that one of those touchdowns was an illegal double forward pass? And how, had Ross Evans been able to kick his way out of a paper sack, that Griffin would not have won the Heisman?
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
I’d give this a WITY – but I’ve already given it one, so what’s the point?
Let’s get on with it. With the end of TCU’s season, there’s one Core Team left – the Cincinnati Bengals – and their run will end Sunday in Indianapolis as they begin/end the playoffs against the Colts.
For the wildcard games, we’ll take the Arizona Cardinals to win in Carolina, Pittsburgh to end Baltimore’s year at Heinz Field, and Detroit (specifically, Megatron) to be too much for Dallas’ secondary.
For colleges, I like #19 Auburn over #18 Bucky in the Outback Bowl (I imagine the Tigers watched that Ohio State film) and #14 UCLA to edge #11 K-State in the Alamo Bowl (the Wildcats have problems with quality quarterbacks).
We’ll have the final recap & benediction Monday or so, as this is (in all probability) the last ever episode of the Perfect Football Weekend. Be here!
