It's that time again!!!

Time for Skins fans to really break out the "HAIL YEAH I HATE THE COWBOYS" wristbands. Never a better time to stop a 5 game losing streak than against your rivals. Does the rivalry mean less if one team is superior to the other? Well that seems to be the case. Cowboys coming off a blowout of the Bills, a team that blanked the Skins a few weeks back. Things were looking so bright in the beginning of the season, however that Giants game now seems light years in the past. Is it legit to ask will the Skins win another game this season?

Rex Grossman back at quarterback didn't give the Redskins the spark they were looking for. Flip flopping back and forth between 2 mediocre quarterbacks is not the solution. Now out of the Luck sweepstakes, do you look in the draft for a quarterback, or go the free agent veteran route? That route hasn't exactly worked out for the Skins lately. And the grumblings about Shanahans return should be put to rest! Let the man get a half decent quarterback before making such decision.

With playoff hopes dashed, and nothing to play for but pride, you better believe that is exactly what they will do! The men in that locker room won't lay down! How can you not be up for a game against a team you hate! Fight for all DC! It may be painful getting through the rest of the season, but better days will come!

Lighten the Mood!

Tragedy, sadness, drama! Seems these are the only things happening in the world recently. The Penn State child sex scandal. Smokin Joe Frazier  and Heavy D passing. The Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos being abducted in Venezuela. I thought it might be a good time to speak about some things a little more uplifting.

But the news is still depressing with the play of the Redskins. Yet another loss, 4 in a row. This time to the 49ers who surprisingly have the second best record in the NFL. But to be optimistic and look at the glass as half full, they did score HOORRRAAAYYY!!! 11 whole points! And that includes a touchdown pass from Beck as well as a 2 point conversion. However, they did release Donte Stallworth. Does it really matter when an unproductive player is let go? Productivity has been lacking from the entire organization which always leaves Skins fans looking forward to next year. But as we look forward to next week, the Skins travel to Miami to take on the Dolphins. Luckily they won't be facing a desperate team looking for their first victory of the season.

As we debate the battles that take place on the field of play each week, lets take time to salute those brave men and women who battle on a different type of field. Make Veterans Day everyday! If you see active duty or retired military personnel, just say Thank You! Thank You for putting you life on the line to secure the rights and freedoms of all Americans. From all of TheWalkons, we salute you and say Thank You!

"Making history for the wrong reason"

With National Cliche Day earlier this week, I thought I might use a few from the sports world to describe the 23-0 loss "the Redskins suffered at the hands of the Buffalo Bills". They have lost 3 straight games and definitely "laid an egg" in Toronto. Giving up what has been changed to a team record 10 sacks, along with Shanahan suffering the first shutout loss in his coaching career. "The skins couldn't even sniff the end zone". The best thing for the Redskins to do now, "take it one game at a time".

And in the next game Carlos Rogers is back in town, "comes to your house" with a surprising 49er's team. And you have to ask those cliched questions. "Who is the starting quarterback"? "Is there a QB controversy in DC"?  Was that change to John Beck permanent? "Let's not get ahead of ourselves" but 9 games remain in the season. Who do you think "starts more games under center"?

The signing of released Dallas running back Tashard Choice is to "bolster the rushing attack". But management isn't the only ones with their eyes on the Cowboys! DeAngelo Hall brings you the HAIL YEAH I HATE DALLAS wristband. TheWalkons support any cause where "a portion of the proceeds go towards a worthy cause". In this case we showing love to D.C CENTRAL KITCHEN. I'm going to have to purchase some wristbands for the other members of TheWalkons during the week of the Cowboys game. (November 20th) Cause we don't want to look ahead "just think about the next game on the schedule".
