ST. LOUIS – After making many poor decisions in his first 11 seasons as owner, Daniel Snyder hired a proven winner in Coach Mike Shanahan, provided support for the new head of the Redskins’ football operation and moved into the background to let Shanahan work alone out front.
And it appears Snyder must do one more thing for Shanahan: Be patient.
The rebuilding process could take a while, which was evident again Sunday as the struggling St. Louis Rams raced to an early lead and pulled away late during a 30-16 victory over the Redskins at the Edward Jones Dome.
Although the Rams have only two victories in their last 29 games and seven in their past 51, they were 14 points better than the Redskins, who endured a similarly frustrating experience last season in Week 3. That was when the hapless Lions stunned the Redskins in Detroit. It was the Rams in the third week this time.
Players did not envision losing to either team – but lose they definitely did.
The Redskins have a tendency of losing to teams with losing records. And the streak continues.
I don’t know how long I can continue to support this team. I’ve been a long time fan since the 70’s. I’ve stood by the Redskins through the good years and the bad years. But the bad years are lasting too damn long thanks to Dan Snyder. Even my mom is saying that she’s getting tired of watching the Redskins and their losing ways.
I know we have a new coach and new quarterback. But where is the defense? Looks like any team can throw against the Redskins defense.
Next week the Redskins meet the Philadelphia Eagles in Philadelphia. The so called city of brotherly love. I don’t think the Redskins and especially Donovan McNabb will receive any sort of brotherly love from Eagles fans.
After an opening victory over the Dallas Cowboys, Washington (1-2) has dropped two in a row and next faces the NFC East-division leading Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. It will be their first contest against Philadelphia since McNabb was traded from that team last spring.
