The Redskins* lost again Sunday to the Saints, another team they could have beaten. The habit is locked in. Again our defense faltered in the fourth quarter, giving up a go-ahead touchdown late in the game. Our guys just cannot seem to make a play when they need to late in the game, whether it be on defense, offense, whatever.

This week the Redskins get to travel to the Giants and will probably have to play in the snow. Two 4 - 8 teams, duking it out in the Meadowlands for pride, pride in themselves. Nobody cares about this game except Giants fans and Redskins fans. About all we have is "Bragging Rights" from this game. Let's see, when was the last time the Redskins beat the Giants?
