Fail to the Redskins

DETROIT, Sept. 27 — As the small crowd of long-suffering Detroit Lions fans hugged and exchanged high-fives in the stands, the Washington Redskins trudged to the visitors’ locker room Sunday afternoon at Ford Field to begin what figures to be another difficult week early in a season that finds them already at a crossroads.
Players and coaches acknowledged there would be much to reevaluate in the coming days after the Lions ended a 19-game losing streak with a 19-14 victory over the Redskins in front of an announced crowd of 40,896 at Ford Field. The job status of embattled Coach Jim Zorn — whose two questionable calls in the first quarter helped shift momentum to the Lions — is among the issues Redskins owner Daniel Snyder might consider in assessing the team’s embarrassing performance for long stretches against the Lions. It appears, however, there also are pressing football matters the team must quickly address with 13 games remaining.
Even 340 yards passing from quarterback Jason Campbell and a breakout performance from wide receiver Santana Moss (10 receptions, a personal-best 178 yards receiving and a 57-yard touchdown reception) were not enough for an offense that has been among the main targets of frustrated fans since long before Zorn arrived at Redskins Park.
After watching Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions I was pissed. I had a bad feeling that the Redskins would let the Lions losing streak come to an end and I was right. I’ve supported the Redskins since the 1970’s but I’m wondering how much longer my love for this team will last. Dan Snyder has got to be one of the worst football team owners ever.
