    First QuarterI 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. This talk of the Redskins being too beaten up to even compete has really taken hold as the national…

    Fourth Quarter FG Brown 33 Seahawks 17, Redskins 3 Well, there is still some pulse there for the Redskins, but we’re rapidly slipping into miracle territory here. Seattle can do the old West Coast offense trick of using the short passing game in the place of the running game and burn the clock. They forgot…

    Third Quarter In Arizona, the Redskins were trailing and took the second-half kickoff and pounded it down the field for a critical touchdown. This ain’t Arizona, that’s for sure, but the Redskins need something similar here. Brunell is really struggling with his throws. Cooley was open there for a first down on the Redskins’ first…

    Second Quarter. Seattle’s Williams has been playing with fire all afternoon and he finally got burned. Perhaps a spark for the offense? Great call on the sneak for the first down with the quick snap. As I said earlier, you don’t want to have the line set for too long, especially on a play when…

    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…

    Third QuarterThis is a good time to get an offensive drive going. 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. If the defense does its job, Betts will…

    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…

It took just two minutes into this one for them to nail him today. A good sign, no doubt.There was a little too much French pastry, as the late Al McGuire used to say, on…
