So I just caught the last few minutes of the Saints-Redskins game.  With two minutes to go and the game seemingly in the bag, the Redskins blow a chip shot field goal, give up a touchdown in 40 seconds, turn over the ball on an interception to send the game into overtime, fumble in their own territory, and then finally lose on a Saints field goal.  Unbelievable.

I think I finally understand what it’s like to be a Redskins fan.
