I didn't get to see most of the game due to another engagement. But, I guess I did see the most meaningful part. I clicked on the TV when Cortez just nailed the 41-yard FG to put the Boys up 13-0.
What I saw from then on what pathetic on both sides of the ball.
Why with less than half a quarter left would you not play some sort of prevent defense? Anyone with some knowledge of football knows that has to score 2 TDs with not a lot of time on the board is going to have to throw the ball. Not only did they do it once, the Skins made our defense look ridiculous twice.
On top of that, they let an old, broken down QB scramble for 25 yards when they needed 27 for a first down?
Then what I saw on offense was worse than what I saw on defense. WRs dropping balls that hit them in the hands. OL making stupid mental mistakes that stalled a drive. OL not opening holes for JJ.
BP has talked about mental toughness being the thing that would hurt this team. He hasn't questioned the team's talent, but he has questioned whether or not they would have the mental attributes to contend. Last night validated his concern.
I'm glad we have 14 games and another shot at the Skins to make amends.
Congrats to the Redskin-nation, though, for hanging in there. But, I feel this is one we gave to them.
