Can the Redskins just fast forward to next Monday?
That should be the day that the team finally says so long to coach Jim Zorn, and starts to think about the future. Sunday night the team showed once again why a complete overhaul is necessary, as they played like a team that didn’t care at home against the Cowboys, losing in uninspiring fashion 17-0.
The team has tried it all. From sending players home to having a guy that was playing bingo at the start of the season call plays, nothing has worked. And that’s exactly what it was like again Sunday night, as the Cowboys didn’t do all that much, but they did more than enough to gain a win to put them into the playoffs in the NFC.
The Redskins are limping towards the finish, as they are 0-2 and have been outscored 62-12 since front office chief Vinny Cerrato resigned and Bruce Allen was named general manager less than two weeks ago. Allen will have a lot to think about when changes start next Monday.
After losing 45-12 last week, the Skins managed 218 yards, and were just 4-for-14 on third downs. They put up just 43 yards rushing, and Jason Campbell did little to think that he should be the starting QB next season. He went 24-for-39 for 199 yards with a pick.
The Redskins defense, which did have Albert Haynesworth starting even after being sent home Friday, kept them in the game, but it really wasn’t much of a game. Dallas had 390 yards, as Tony Romo threw for 286 yards, and Marion Barber and Felix Jones combined for 118 combined yards.
The now 4-11 Skins will finally put to bed this awful 2009 season as they play in San Diego against the Chargers next Sunday.
