This is another embarrassing moment in Redskins history. We have had our chances to make the playoffs thanks to our rival, the Dallas Cowboys beating teams down the stretch that we needed them to beat to keep us in the hint for the playoffs. When it was our turn to continue on beating teams, the only one we could beat was the lousy bears which,is nothing to brag about.
We had the Giants Week 17 and all we had to do was win the game and we were in the post season for the second straight year since the 90s. Well we went out and played like pure trash can juice and we have nobody to blame but ourself. The defense was bad yet again and Kirk Cousins did not live up to all the hype. We were driving down the field late in the 4th and he threw an interception directly into the hands of the Giants. On a lateral pass, Jordan Reed threw a pick six to end the game, which made the lost more embarrassing. Our fans deserve better then this and we deserve to be sitting at home and watching all the other teams in the playoffs.
I am not sure if we should sign Kirk Cousins to a long term deal. I think he is a poor mans Tony Romo and thats being nice. He just doesn’t have that killer instinct when it matters most. He can only kill bad teams and he rolls over a dies for the good teams. We need to fix our defense and draft some good players. I’m starting to believe in all the hype of our GM because we are making the same horrible mistakes and looking like the Skins of old times. We have the 17th pick in the draft and we need to make it count and use our cap space well.
