TLP has gone LEGIT! You will now find your favorite thread in THN’s Blog section. For the uninitiated, TLP republishes articles from the Redskins vanquished foes’ hometown newspapers. It is here where you will hear the other side of the story; how the other team beat themselves, or were cheated by the refs, and many other excuses for losing to the Redskins.
So let’s get right to the fun. Our first edition of the season comes to you from the pages of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Ahhh, the sweet smell of victory. The Washington Redskins handed the St. Louis Rams their first loss of the season, with a fairly convincing 24-10 win on Sunday.
All of Redskins Nation rejoiced. Even the Minions.
Hail to the Redskins.

The Redskins controlled the first half with a solid ground game, and their defense looked after the rest.
Matt Jones scored his first NFL touchdown with a beautiful run up the left sidelines for 39 yards.
Washington’s last touchdown drive was the best drive of the season. They just smashed their way down the field – it was beautiful. It was capped off with a Garcon 5-yard grab, but was set up completely by the Redskins offensive line paving highways for Matt Jones and Alfred Morris to run through. 12 plays – 82 yards – almost 8 minutes (7:44). Gorgeousity.
Jones finished the half with 80 yards on 9 carries, AlMo has 52 yards on 8 carries.
Cousins is 12/14 for 115 yards. No picks despite a narrow miss, and the touchdown pass to Garcon.
The defense was near perfect. The Rams managed just 72 total yards and kicked the ball 6 straight times. It was the first time that the Redskins have shut out the opposition in the first half, for 4 years – 61 games to be exact.
Let’s hope that the wheels don’t fall off in the second. If Washington can continue to run the ball like they have, and eat clock, they can earn their first victory of the season against a tough opponent.

… So Let It Be Done.
Last night the Washington Redskins put out a second mortgage on their house, and with the proceeds, they are going to go out and buy a shiny new toy on April 26th at the NFL Draft. It is reported that Washington have traded their next THREE first round picks and a second round pick, to the St. Louis Rams for the number two overall pick. Did they pay too much?

This type of blog seemed to go over well last time, so I’m going to keep doing it. I send out a tweet for some crowdsourced information, and I put the #RedskinsNation’s thoughts into a blog.
