Saints Game Preview Preview

At least you look cool

Amidst Christmas tree buying and decorating, trying to keep three young boys from destroying the house and preparing for not one but two holiday parties later tonight, the staff of The Curly R has been hard at work preparing the preview for tomorrow's football game against the undefeated New Orleans Saints, a team the Redskins have beaten twice in the past three seasons. An amuse bouche from that preview for your Saturday:

The Story So Far: The Season from Hell marches on, before you sigh heavily and wonder if the Redskins are ever going to be a good football team ever again, think about this: Ten different men have started along the five positions of the offensive line, nine Redskins players are on the season ending injured reserve list, tailback Clinton Portis has accumulated in eleven games, well seven and change actually, having missed three-plus since his concussion, fewer rushing yards than he did in five games last season and perhaps most bizarrely, the offensive genius head coach was barred from calling plays and replaced by a retired guy whose most recent experience is calling bingo games.

And yet five of Washington's eight losses have been by less than a touchdown.

Enjoy your Saturday, see you tomorrow for the game
