The fat lady just sang, but not before Gostowski kicked the game-winning field goal for the Patriots. It appeared to me that Belichek was tired and just wanted the game to end. Imagine his horror if the Redskins had returned the kick-off to the 35 yard line and Suisham had converted a 52 yard field goal to tie the game. Suisham missed a 52 yarder wide left earlier, so he would have welcomed the chance to redeem himself.
Post mortem – Anthonly Alridge, Dominic Dorsey, Kevin Barnes, Hunter Smith, Marko Mitchell, and Devin Thomas – outstanding. Malcolm Kelly & Jason Campbell- not bad. Colt Brennan – you sir had an up and down night. I reckon Chase Daniel is looking forward to the final preseason game.
Tuesday September 1 is the first cut-down deadline. Who’s likely to be cut? I’m thinking Devin Clark, Justin Tryon, D J Hackett, and Mike Williams are on the proverbial bubble. Then again, I don’t get paid to make those decisions. Thank goodness I don’t get paid to notify the roster hopefuls. Yuk.
Jacksonville is on deck. Another tough defense, for sure. the Redskins’ offense is really being tested. Tonight their defense was tested big-time, as well. You can see improvement week-to-week. Next week may be a whole different story. It’ll be all about the players who need to make an impression in order to either make the team or the practice squad. Go Skins.
