Commanders forced fashion
For my final disappointment, I was going to mention the turnover battle.
Two bad turnovers by the Washington Commanders offense and none by the defense. But then rookie defensive back Quan Martin made his big interception to seal the game, and the ratio didn’t look so bad.
Then I thought I'd complain about how the middle of the offensive line - though more organized with Tyler Larsen at the center spot - still can’t open up a hole for running back Brian Robinson Jr. But that has been a problem all season. Hard to call it a disappointment at this point.
So I settled on this.
I’m all for the NFL’s Salute to Service campaign. The more we can do to honor and support the military, the better. But couldn’t we show that support with a somewhat more attractive color?
Those mustard brown sweatshirts simply are not a good look on anyone. When a fashionista like Bill Belichick refuses to wear it, you know there’s a problem.
There are a lot of colors out there, NFL. Do better.
Aside from that, it was a pretty pleasing day at the office for Washington. What's important now is trying to build a positive run of results with Josh Harris' ownership group proving they are willing to make changes if needed throughout the last fortnight.
