Redskins 16, Bucs 13

Don’t go away. Much more from Joe to come. For the moment, you can read Joe’s thoughts on the fourth quarter.

* Bucs, after Johnson fell down short of the first down to begin the fourth, are now 1-10 on third downs. Not much more to say.

* Talib with the hattrick. Joe can’t remember any Bucs defensive back getting three interceptions in one game. Donnie Abraham maybe against Minnesota? Joe’s not sure.

* Joe will write again: PLEASE Greg Olson will you try Clifton Smith?

* Well, throwing on first down is different.

* Johnson sure doesn’t look like a guy making his first NFL start, does he? (Please note sarcasm).

* Bucs got a helluva nice spot on that third down pass for a (barely) first down.

* Wow, FINALLY a decent run, a good run and a first down. Bucs need to keep that up, whatever they did right.

* A Clifton Smith sighting, squeezing through traffic for a short game.

* Very nice run by Cadillac for a first down. What has happened all of a sudden that the Bucs are running effectively?

* Freaking beautiful. False start.

* This is the violent running Raheem the Dream must have talked about since he got hired. Keep feeding Cadillac the ball if they are running like this.

* Bucs need seven. NEED SEVEN.

* Well, maybe the Bucs went to the well too often on that loss by Cadillac.

* If Nugent misses this chip shot he should be cut now.

* Field goal was defected but good. Nugent should still be cut.

* Let’s see if the Bucs have a pair and can pull this out. This is the first real fight the Bucs have been in this season.

* Gee, what a monster hole Portis just ran through. Time is not on the Bucs side.

* OK, getting Portis behind the line is a good start.

* Monster third down here for the Bucs defense. A Redskins first down might be the game.

* Surprised the Redskins didn’t go for it on fourth-and-short which would have sealed the game.

* Why does Joe have visions of Shaun King in the 1999 NFC title game?

* Fumble, game over.

* Clifton Smith fumble. Remember why Chucky wouldn’t play him? Joe is rudely reminded.

* Simply put, this loss is on Mike Nugent. No way around that.

    Seems I called it almost perfect, didn I not, “Mike?” Go back to the ship of fools, I’ll keep our Club Seats.

    Why are we running the Fourth string running back? Caddy was kicking pretty good on that pitch run and why Smith. We can’t even beat the really shitty Skins. I’m ready for the new coach and the #1 pick right now.

  3. Fredrick Says:

    You see how clueless Josh Johnson was in the second half after the Redskins made their adjustments? The season is officially over, why not throw Freeman in the rest of the way and let him be clueless? Better now than at the start of next season. And at least he’s more likely to look down field before bailing out on ineffective scrambles. That was brutal to watch.

  4. Sgt Mike Says:

    Piss Poor coaching. Morris and Olson suck at preparing the offense. Bates had the Defense overachieving today.

  5. Sgt Mike Says:

    Its’s kinda like the offense went into the half time break and said “yeah, keep doing what your doing and you can win” , thinking the Skins were not going to make adjustments. That’s why JJ looked clueless coming out in the 2nd half. No midgame adjustments. Goes back to Piss Poor coaching by Morris and Olson.

  7. Sgt Mike Says:

    Injury. He should be healthy about now.
