Yes, I’ve got the Monday blues after watching the Washington Redskins blow a fifteen point lead yesterday to the Carolina Panthers and eventually lose to the Panthers 20-17 😦
After Letting a 15-Point Lead Slip Away, Redskins Players Insist Zorn Isn’t the Problem

CHARLOTTE, Oct. 11 — In the moments immediately after another unsettling defeat that prompted the Washington Redskins to question much about themselves, many team leaders were united on this: Changing the head coach alone will not solve their problems.
To be sure, many things are going poorly for the Redskins, as evidenced by a 20-17 loss to the formerly winless Carolina Panthers on Sunday afternoon at Bank of America Stadium. Washington was undone, in large part, by a strange sequence of events on a punt in the fourth quarter that resulted in a turnover that Carolina quickly capitalized on to score the go-ahead touchdown.
The only thing that is keeping me sane right about now is looking through my new Michael Jackson book and the fact that today is a holiday.
I actually thought there was some hope after the Skins defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week. I’m not thrilled about next week’s opponent. We play the 0-5 Kansas City Chiefs. The Skins don’t do too well against lowly teams. But hey, right now the Skins are lowly too. Should I throw in the towel now and cuss out Dan Snyder ahead of time? Or should I wait until next week after the game 😦
