    Breaking news?????
    Where have you been during last 6 games???
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle

    I wouldn't exactly call this breaking news.

    Actually, the Redskins only got 16 yards on the 3rd and 17 (which was immediately followed by an easy 4th and 1 conversion). See, our defense is much better than you think!

    oh yeah!.. and the skins ran the same toss play over and over and over again.

    "oh we got 5 yards to the left?"
    "okay.. nice.. let's try it to the right....NICE 6 yards!" FIRSTDOWN!

    let's do that 2 more times... and if we need 6 yards....
    " let's throw it to the single wide out that has 7 yards of open field in front of him!

    Fewell did nothing to stop the skins strategy. Nothing.

    I wonder if the NFL keeps stats on that? They keep track of converting 3rd and long. What about defending 3rd and very long (12+).

    Either way, we do seem to end up on the wrong side of a lot of downright loserly plays.
