Redskins set infamous record: The Lions beat the Redskins yesterday, which was incredibly their first win in Washington since about the time World War II was getting underway. Those of us who thought the Lions stood a chance of winning probably guessed it would be a 45-38 shootout type of final score. It really wasn’t. Detroit won 27-20, and the sad part is that was Washington’s best outing of the season. The Redskins have conceded an astounding 1,464 yards to date this season, which sets an NFL record for worst performance in the history of the league in the first three weeks of the season. Good thing Washington has a few first-round picks they can use to help address the holes on def … err, never mind — those reside in a bank vault in Saint Louis. I’d like to think the Raiders offense will give the Skins an opportunity to turn this around, but how can I not have doubts at this point? A month ago, I would have guessed I’d have come to work wearing a dress before guessing I’d write the following, but here goes: Terrelle Pryor and Darren McFadden owners, you should anticipate a strong Week 4.
Giants, Packers, Niners all bickering: So, you don’t have to look very hard to find stories about how Hakeem Nicks is mad for not registering a single catch in Week 3, Aaron Rodgers got into a shouting match with Mike McCarthy and Frank Gore jawing in Jim Harbaugh’s face for not getting enough carries in a hideous loss against the Colts. It’s a good thing that the aforementioned players don’t take losing well, but it isn’t a good thing when what should be kept internally
Richardson debut mediocre: Trent Richardson ran for an early touchdown in a win over the Niners, and you could see the excitement in his reaction. As for the bottom line in his debut? Just 35 yards on 13 carries. Nothing too impressive, and while it’s still very early, Cleveland’s front office is starting to look like they might have gotten the better end of the deal. Richardson seems like he might be a 3.5 YPC back for his career, and not much more.
