I was hoping my debut as a Redskins fan would feature a win but . . . not so much. And, yes, I suppose one has to concede that a better quarterback would have helped. On the other hand, in a close game just about everything matters and Washington clearly could have stood to have had, for example, a better kicking squad. It seems that under the new scheme with a super-powered defensive coordinator and a super-powered offensive coordinator, nobody's coaching the special teams unit.

More to the point, I was hoping that Antwan Randel El was going to mean I would see some awesome trick plays. Instead, zero trick plays. Very disappointing. Nothing beats a trick play.
