The Washington Redskins obviously weren’t paying attention in preseason.
They forgot the “football experts” picked them to end up dead last in the NFL.

Dan Snyder forgot he was supposed to keep Jerry Jones’ trophies and Roger Goodell’s Mercedes polished.
Jay Gruden forgot he was supposed to cut Chip Kelly’s yard and take out Tom Coughlin’s garbage.

Although the Rams are win-less, they were in two of the games solidly that they lost. Their premier running-back Steven Jackson has been injured and will be back against the Redskins in the next game. Also the Rams signed Rod Hood, a great defensive back. Following the 2006 season, Hood left the Eagles in free agency and signed a five-year $15 million contract with the Arizona Cardinals where he was the starting cornerback in 2007 and 2008.
