The party is almost over ladies and gentlemen! The final week of the NFL regular season is here. The Redskins travel to Philly to meet the Eagles in the finale of what has been a disappointing season to say the least! The Skins are coming off a 33-26 loss to the Vikings where they were not able to capitalize on Minnesota's starting quaterback and Pro Bowl running back going down in the 3rd quarter. The mobile Joe Webb, who the Skins definitely were not prepared for, filled in suitably throwing for 2 touchdowns and running for another in the victory. Things don't get much better this week facing an even more mobile Mike Vick and a red hot Eagles squad. The Eagles are going for a season sweep and 4th straight over the Skins. In the week six 20-13 loss, Rex Grossman was benched after throwing 4 interceptions, which ushered in the John Beck era, or error! As Biggie said "your reign on the top was short like leprechauns" as Beck started the next 3 games before eventually handing the job back over to Grossman.
And we move on to more disappointment with the beloved Washington Redskins who were one of four teams to not have a member selected to the Pro Bowl. London Fletcher who leads the NFL in tackles with 163 was once again a forgotten man in not being selected. Maybe the 5-10 record had just a little to do with him being overlooked. Lets cap it off with Ryan Torain getting a heck of a Christmas gift, being given his release by the team. The 2 rookies Roy Helu and Evan Royster seem like they will share the load for many years to come! Maybe the only bright spots on an otherwise very dark season!
