Understanding the reality of where his Washington Redskins are after eight weeks, coach Mike Shanahan on Monday busted out the phrase that players agreed best describes the upcoming game against the Carolina Panthers: "I think everybody knows that it's a must-win game," he said.
With this weekend's time change in mind, let's fall back to the preseason. In my Aug. 31 column, I made five not-so-bold predictions, hoping but not expecting that a couple would eventually prove true. As you'll read, it looks like I was mostly right about being mostly wrong.
