The Skins weren't able to get back to back wins they so desperately were hoping for, falling to the Jets 34-19. A quarter of the season remains, and looking at the schedule there may be only 1 more victory out there. They have to run the table just to finish .500! The next game is home against Brady and the Patriots. Belichick and Brady have to be licking their chops, considering the Pats franchise has never won a game in the Presidents home town! Add that to the the suspensions of Fred Davis and Trent Williams for the remainder of the season for repeat violations of the leagues substance abuse policy. I just hope it doesn't get ugly early! How riled up must Andre Carter be coming back to play against his old team. He played 5 seasons with the Redskins before going to New England. He has 9 sacks on the year and you know he's going to want to get after Rex Grossman to increase that total.
A positive note on the season is the Skins may have found themselves a running back for the forseeble future. 4th round pick Roy Helu rushed for 100 yards in consective games and has clearly been a bright spot in an otherwise dim season. Is it time to fully concentrate on the Washington Wizards? They open up Monday December 26th at home against the New Jersey Nets. Maybe John Wall, Andray Blatche, and JaVale McGee can bring some excitement to the DMV!
