I hate to say it but if you like the Redskins, you like the Cowboys tonight on Monday Night Football. The Redskins need the lions to lose to continue to increase their odds of making the playoffs in back to back seasons. I'm not saying you need to go buy a Dak jersey to wear tonight but keep an eye on it and hope that Jerry decides to keep the starters in the whole game. Remember this would have been a lot easier and you wouldn't have had to root for the terrible Texas team if the Redskins wouldn't have laid a total dud against the Panthers.
kirk Cousins has proven he is worth a top tier QB contract in the NFL. Over the last two prime time games he has six touchdowns and over 800 yards passing. He is already climbing the Redskin history books with the kind of stats he has been putting up. The Redskins need to make this a priority right when they can start to negotiate. Pay the man he will bring success to a franchise and city that has desperately been waiting for years. Let's not worry about the QB anymore and focus on the defensive side of the ball. #HTTR
As a long time DC sports fan this is a great time for this sports town. The Caps and Wizards are both in the playoffs and have won a game. Now it's time for this city to make the next step in the playoffs and make it to the next round. If your under the age of 25 you have been waiting your entire life to feel what a championship parade or confetti falling from the ceiling feels like. Maybe this will be the time. So, cheer as loud as you can, yell at your TV, and do what you have to do to get these teams to victory. You never know when a time like this will come around again!
Hows your March Madness bracket? Mine is actually doing pretty well, it ranks 6,000. I know that doesn't sound that great but keep in mind there were 11.57 million brackets that were entered into the ESPN Tournament Challenge. I think this is what keeps us coming back each March, not just the crazy upsets or buzzer beater shots it's the gambling mentality each of us have. Whether you are in a pool for money or just want to be the top name in your office pool, you will continue to fill out a bracket each March and actually think you might be the first person to complete a perfect bracket.
Next year take some time and take some chances with your brackets if you want to be perfect. Keep in mind two 14 seeds moved on the very first day of the tourney!
So, the Nationals have won the NL East Division Championship and are on the verge of having the best record in the NL. What is the first thing we hear about? The 1-3 Redskins and how they lost again, but there is hope with Captain Kirk...Trust me I'm a die hard Redskins fan, but let's give the boys in red some love, let's get the Natitude going! We are a little over a week away from October baseball in DC.
So join me, call into radio station, wear your Nationals polos to work, spread the word and best of all do what you have to do to get yourself a playoff ticket..there is nothing like October baseball
