    First Quarter I spent seven hours in the car driving my son back to college today. Switching among sports talk stations on my XM Radio, I didn’t find a single commentator—not one—who thought the Redskins could win.

    Although it’s not my job here to be a thoroughly objective journalist, I do try very hard to step back and take an objective look at things (which is more than I suspect that many who are supposed to be neutral journalists do). And in taking an objective look at the Seahawks I see a…

    Fourth QuarterThis game is being placed squarely on the shoulders of the defense, evidently. If they tackle like Walt Harris did when he had Williams for a five-yard loss but let him get away, that’s a shaky proposition.Time for the D to step up here on fourth down. Let’s see.That was a rather cocky call…

A good percentage of the fans are not yet back in their seats, not much disruptive crowd noise.Portis being out of this game is not good, obviously, but not a disaster with a two-touchdown lead.

    Second QuarterRenaldo Wynn is one of the truly under appreciated guys on this team. It looks like he’s out with a broken arm; if you have to go out on a cart for an arm injury, it can’t be good. Cornelius Griffin missed the first game and the Bucs are being reminded of that. He’s…
