We’re going to fill out this post with some thoughts about the Redskins. Maybe there will be a stat or two.
Make no mistake: This is all just an excuse to show that cover of the Washington Post via D.C. Sports Bog.
“Right now you take a look at the offense and it’s tough to take. It’s tough to take for me,” coach Mike Shanahan said when asked about all the early exits from the stands on Sunday against San Francisco.
John Beck didn’t have a pass that traveled longer than 17 yards in Washington’s 19-11 loss. Until a drive with under five minutes left, the Redskins didn’t advance the ball past San Francisco’s 37-yard line.
Mike Shanahan was brought along to fix the offense. The team is averaging 12.6 points-per-game over the last six weeks, and they’ve lost four straight games.
The team is no better on offense than it was under Jim Zorn. There is no light at the end of the quarterback tunnel or exciting skill position talent to build around.
It’s enough to make a man pretty grumpy.
