You Can’t Call it Bad Luck, The Injuries Got out of of Control

skins

If the Washington Redskins did not have bad luck, they would not have any luck at all. The Redskins lost both starting guards weeks ago, all-pro left tackle Trent Williams undergo surgery on his hand, thumb and other injuries, They lost their starting quarterback Alex Smith for the season after he suffered a broken leg. Backup quarterback Colt McCoy was throw into the fire.

In last night’s game versus the Eagles, McCoy suffered a season ending broken leg. Quarterback Mark Sanchez was just signed two weeks ago and had not taken a regular season snap in 701 days. With virtually no practice with the starters, Sanchez became the starting quarterback and faced the pressure of a good Eagles pass-rush and front seven.

It’s time to state the obvious: The margin for error is just about gone for the Redskins. When we had the momentum we didn’t maintain it and as a result the Cowboys are in the catbird seat and the Eagles are breathing down our necks. No more excuses, we have to get the job done this week.

Guys, the score of the game was hardly as relevant to me as the following:

With under 8 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, Alex Smith suffered a horrific broken leg injury as two Texans sacked him. He was taken off field in a cart and a cast and taken to a hospital for immediate surgery. Alex and his family will need all the prayers that the Redskins fans can come up with, and then some.

Week: 11: The Beast of the East says “The Gloves Come off Now”

skins

When you’re 1st place in your division and your record is 6 and 3 there are a few things that come with the territory – you’re cocky, got swagger and attitude, you’re 7 foot tall and bulletproof. So what happens when both teams show up equally matched, equally motivated and ready to rumble? You guessed it, this will be a heavyweight title fight. Both teams have a stingy defense so expect it to get bloody in the trenches.
