Happy Homecoming!!

First off, congrats to Donovan McNabb on having a wonderful visit to Philadelphia. I am sure that it was everything he had hoped for.

Second, WOW REDSKINS!!! I am a huge redskins fan. But even I have to be a little less positive. If Michael Vick would not have left the ball game with a rib and chest injury early in the first quarter, it would have been a totally different ball game. The Eagles almost beat the 'Skins WITHOUT Vick! Jason Avant caught the football in the end zone and then for whatever reason just let it go! It hit him in the hands!! Lucky break for the Redskins!

Kevin Kolb played one of the worst games I've ever seen a quarterback play. That being said, he still gave the Eagles a chance to win!! A number of times he should have chucked the ball down field for DeSean Jackson and instead threw it underneath the coverage to LeSean McCoy. McCoy had over 100 yards receiving for the game.

The Redskins need to learn how to play both halves of a football game. They put up 17 points in the first half and held the Eagles to only 6 points. Then they get the ball to start the second half. Step on the accelerator run them into the dirt!! But no. The Redskins offense was almost non-existent for much of the second half. The Redskins almost gave away another game because of a poor second half performance. You can credit the defense for standing firm and stopping the Eagle offense when they had to.

In the words of Bill Cowher "so what if we won ugly." Those words have never been so true. After 4 weeks of play the Redskins are 2-2 and sit 2-0 in the NFC East. Who cares how many non-division teams they beat. They could go 6-10 and still win the NFC East and make the playoffs. Up next for the Redskins is the Green Bay Packers at FedEx Field next Sunday.
