What to do when the Redskins are stinky
Rapidly moving toward the day when the Bog abandons the Redskins and goes for saturation Caps/United coverage, but some quick notes in the meantime.
1) Counting the preseason, which at this point I'm bloody well counting, Mark Brunell has one touchdown in his last 166 pass attempts. That stat is a Bog exclusive. He's, you know, not very good.
2) I spent the first quarter Sunday night trying to help some random guy outside my house change a flat tire in his Cadillac Northstar. As he attempted to use my jacks, his car gradually began falling apart in front of us. He eventually rejected both of my jacks and set off down the street looking for more help, leaving the three-wheeled Northstar in a nearby alley. This was, needless to say, far more entertaining than the football game I was missing.
3) Anyhow, what to do when the game disappoints? Change the station? Go to sleep? Find random flat-tired cars? I usually go to the message board of the disappointing team to read stuff like this:
* If Campbell isn't ready then Gibbs is more to blame for that than the fact that he can't see in Brunell what the rest of the world sees - a washed up loser with a rag arm
* I say it over and over and over again....Brunell sucks!!!!! He's pathetic, now why can't Gibbs see that!!??
* we should start a petition to send in to the Skins coaching staff to start Campbell or Collins. ha.
* Over the hill, blind as a bat, scared as a chicken, Mark Brunell needs to retire. (That's actually from our own thread.)
And yes, I saw at least one reference to Hitler on a Skins message board last night. Good stuff.
4) Did John Madden think the Skins should have gotten Santana Moss involved in the offense?

7) If took until about 11:22 for Madden to make this observation: "They're not very good." After last year's trip to Dallas and yesterday's Manning Miracle, I don't blame him for waiting, although I jumped on that train a bit earlier in the night.
8) When Mike Rumph makes a fairly nice hit and Madden says "That's Cowboys-Redskins!" does it not occur to him that Rumph has been a part of this storied rivalry for exactly 35 days?
8) When Julius Jones talks about how the whole world will be watching NBC's Sunday Night Football, did he mean more or less of the world than Quincy Carter did during the "Hard Knocks" era? This month, by the way, the whole world has also watched Ohio State-Texas, Redskins-Vikings, Maryland-West Virginia and the MLB pennant races. Although oddly, my wife has watched none of these events.
