Things got pretty rough for the Washington Redskins' offensive line last season. If one more guy had gotten hurt or suspended, the team might have held a seance and tried to contact the spirit of Turk Edwards.
No Washington Redskins fan should be very happy with Saturday's holiday present from the team: a 33-26 home loss to a Minnesota Vikings club that was in the running for the first pick in the draft. After a series of encouraging performances, the Redskins had a relapse and played like the stumblebums they were earlier in the season, when they were finding creative ways to drop six straight. For their efforts - or lack thereof - they wrapped up last place in the NFC East for the fifth time in six years.
It was never about the playoffs for the Washington Redskins this season. Not, certainly, after the decision was made to stand pat at the quarterback spot.
Since the NFL and AFL clasped hands in 1970, rosters in pro football have increased from 40 to 53 players. Throw in the practice squad, and there are 61 men immediately available nowadays to any team.
For a team in the throes (or is it the overthrows?) of what the Washington Redskins are in the throes of, there is no bottom. Two losses become three. Three turn into four. And then you run the streak to five with a 20-9 loss on Sunday to the previously 1-7 Miami Dolphins.
