Well, it is as expected. Cousins gets credit for another loss. Let's see, of the 6 losses he has thrown interceptions that lost 3 of them and now an intentional grounding that would have been uncatchable anyway. Unfortunately, the Redskins will probably be stupid enough to sign him to a long term contract and publicize how wonderful he is and how fortunate they are to resign such a great quarterback and have the quarterback situation settled.

Hoping heartily for 4-12 and the #2 pick in the draft along with a housecleaning from HC on down. I would also hope for Danny Boy to sell the team to a real owner, but I don't want to be greedy.

I didn't post during the game because I knew it would be an emotional response.

Gruden needs to go.

no reason to panic - 10-6 is still a possibility

let's not spoil the fun - this season still has 6 games to go and then we can enjoy the off season speculating

going to be interesting to see how the team responds on Thursday - that was a really devastating loss
Redskins need to fire Bruce Allen - things could get better quickly if we had better decision makers

You're actually admitting to wanting them to lose?

Technically, yes. But, I think you'd have to be surfing in the opioid stratosphere to believe it's likely.

Even if we'd won, we just lost one of the most irreplacable players on the team- Chris Thompson.

Absolutely. Would you rather them go 10-6, make the wild card game, then lose? That would mean no coaching change, Cousins signed to a financially-crippling multiyear deal, and no impact draft picks. I'm thinking longterm here. If I thought they had a puncher's chance of doing damage in the playoffs I'd feel differently, but IMHO this team needs to be blown up.

I always want them to win. I would NEVER pull for them to lose. Making the playoffs is not going to happen with the injuries we have. But, there is NO WAY that I would WANT THEM TO LOSE! No, sir. You're a sad excuse for a fan if you pull for them to lose.

We are injury plagued... And have been in contention with all the best teams in the NFL... The pukes being our one ugly loss, but they had their line healthy and Zeke. Some of your expectations are rediculous.
We almost beat who dat at home, and they have been as good or better then their sb year... Boo whoo

I no longer wonder IF the Skins will choke, I wonder at what point of the game they'll choke...because they WILL choke...

it's just amazing that as well as we played the last 2 games, we managed to lose both games

Case Keenum and Drew Brees had the best games of the season - good teams find a way to win

we can play really well despite the injuries and still find a way to lose - it's been this way since 1999 :roll:

It did not happen. Redskins won. I refuse to believe differently.

the play should not have been called or run - the ref's call was absolutely the correct call, there was nobody there
STILL - hard to figure out why the redskins called a pass play - when Sean Payton got the ball he called nothing but run plays

SORRY! - my bad - this just in ...
According to Mike Jones of USA Today, team president Bruce Allen received word from league officials that the devastating intentional grounding on the Redskins' potential game-winning drive was the incorrect call, a penalty that took them out of field goal range. Cousins was sacked on the next play of the game to send it to overtime.

With the Redskins driving, Cousins threw the ball towards the sidelines on a short out route, however a miscommunication between the quarterback and Jamison Crowder saw the ball fall to the turf with no one insight, resulting in the call from the officials. While no one was in the vicinity, the pass wasn't a throwaway, but instead a timing route gone wrong. What should have been third down for the Redskins with a chance to better their field position instead turned into another failed game-winning drive.
