The Saints Are Marching (Towards a Perfect Season)

Ultimately, I’m not SHOCKED that the Redskins couldn’t pull it together in order to take down the undefeated Saints yesterday, despite the game being eminently winnable, the Redskins after all have been absolutely pathetic this year. Nothing symbolizes that better than this play; with less than a minute remaining in the first half, Drew Brees throws an interception which is then immediately ripped out of the Redskins’ hands and run back for a touchdown by Saints receiver Robert Meachem.

Not only is this play just awful if you’re a Redskins fan, but look at that stiff-arm Brees throws at the beginning of the play, that’s a defensive end that Brees just pushes to the ground like he was a six-year-old child. Only one word can describe that stiff-arm, the rest of the play, the Redskins season and their racist team name; embarrassing.


“It’s Bad, I’m Wearing a Bag on My Head”

I get that rooting for the 2-4 Washington Redskins has to be difficult this season, their play is completely uninspired, their performances miserable and of course, they have a racist name. Fans have turned against the team already and are desperate for anything good to happen, they have a long ways to go. Several fans have taken to wearing a paper bag over their heads in shame.

I get that. What I don’t get is that part of the reason you wear the bag over your head is to HIDE your face because you are so embarrassed to be rooting for the team that they have made you ashamed, so then why do you agree to an interview with the local news where you GIVE YOUR NAME?!!?!

Ladies and gentlemen, the 2009 Washington Redskins: Where fans have zero hope.

So THAT’S What They Do When Guys Aren’t Around

I always knew that when I wasn’t around cheerleaders everywhere were playing craps, smoking cigars, helping each other stretch and of course, the pillow fights. Always the pillow fights. I don’t know what it is, but something happens once those pillows start flying and feathers fill the air, women live for that moment. Right? Yeah, that’s probably true.

If you ever wanted to know what goes on behind the scenes in the Washington Redskins cheerleaders dressing room, here’s your (incredibly staged) chance.

I just hope the NFL won’t come down hard on these ladies for their locker room gambling, it could really┬ájeopardize┬áthe Redskins’ chances this season.

Cooley is Ready for His Close-Up

I’m not one for reality shows, and usually the ones about athletes are boring and uninteresting but an upcoming web-based show around Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley seems like it could be somewhat entertaining. At least briefly. I mean, it starts with a near-naked photo of Cooley and his wife, Christy a former Redskins cheerleader so there’s that at least.


The rest of the show seems like pretty standard fare, star-athlete-is-like-normal-guy-only-with-lots-of-money type skein, I doubt it reaches wide-spread popularity, but who knows, anything could happen.

Roethlisberger Hates on Cheerleaders

In this week’s Monday Night Football matchup the Pittsburgh Steelers are set to face off against the Washington Redskins but for players like Ben Roethlisberger this game won’t be a fun one to play. “I’m not a big fan of playing there because it is loud, they’re really good at home…” he told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Seems fair, I can’t imagine it’s a lot of fun having 50,000 people rooting against you and hoping for your failure, but then again, he’s a professional athlete and should be used to it. But wait, there’s more, that wasn’t the end of the quote! He went on to voice his real displeasure with playing the Redskins, “…they try to make their cheerleaders stretch in our tunnel before we come out of the locker room. That’s just not good. The couple of preseason games I’ve played down there, we’ve seen it,” Roethlisberger said, “It can be [a distraction], let’s be truthful. They’ve done it before. I’ve heard a rumor that they’re not allowed to do it anymore.”

It’s true, the league last year instituted a rule colloquially known as the “Redskins Rule” wherein the cheerleaders are not supposed to warm up in front of the visiting team’s locker room entrance. Since there are multiple entrances and such somehow the Redskins’ ladies are able to get around this rule. Meanwhile, for Roethlisberger their T&A is simply too much for he and his teammates to handle. Most players thought this ruling was an overreaction and unnecessary but clearly Roethlisberger disagrees. Hey guys, why not just play the game and THEN worry about banging the cheerleaders? You make millions of dollars, I’m sure you can charm them. So stop whining, take a peek and then go about your job.
