PORC ‘s of the Week

PORC of the Week Part 1: (Pessimistic Opinionated Redskin Comment of the Week) It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Not this year. Our defense has been upgraded. A consistent pass rush would become imminent. Turnovers would be forced and quarterbacks would be taken out of their rhythm. The Defense would be feared as opponents would be frustrated. An outstanding Rookie would make an immediate impact. Albert Haynesworth would collapse the pocket freeing up Andre Carter and Philip Daniels to wreak havoc behind the line of scrimmage. Or at least that’s what we were sold.

The Redskins 4th ranked defense from a year ago would remain largely intact. Another year of continuity under the same system under the same defensive coordinator under the same leadership. Another year of regression and disillusionment. How could such a defensive juggernaut allow the 0-19 Lions to run up and down the field on them?

How could a rookie quarterback starting just his third professional game in his life guide a supposed dysfunctional franchise to victory converting 75% of third downs and controlling the time of possession? Instead of gelling and become a cohesive powerful unit, players have aged and are past their prime. Like our 100 Million Dollar man Albert Haynesworth the Redskins defense passes out after two quarters. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Not this year.

PORC of the Week Part 2: (Postitive Opinionated Redskin Comment of the Week) The Detroit Lions are not an 0-19 team. The media has hyped the story up but then again, who can blame them? The team I saw on Sunday destroy the Redskins was a 1-2 football team and should be viewed as such. I would not be surprised if the Lions were to win 5 or 6 games this year. They know they can win and compete. Despite getting blown out by the Saints they were able to put up 27 points.

The Redskins haven’t done that since 1968. Despite losing at Minnesota, the Lions gave the Vikings a run for their money. It was just a matter of time before the losing streak was snapped. Can you really blame Washington Nationals pitcher Mike Bacsik for giving up Barry Bonds’ record breaking home run? For the Washington Redskins, there is still a lot of football left to be played. They are about to face possibly the 2nd worse team in the league next to the St. Louis Rams at home. The Redskins will win at home this week and score over 20 points in the process.
