When I was growing up I remember often hearing after a non-call in a game that a penalty could be called on every play from scrimmage so sometimes the refs would just have to let things go. Apparently, the new adage is a penalty could be called on every play, so call that penalty. Yellow flags littered the field to start the Monday night match-up between the Washington Redskins and the Cleveland Browns which really prevented the development of any sort of rhythm or flow to the game.

The movement to change the Washington Redskins name has issued a big blow to the organization as well as owner Daniel Snyder in the form the United States Patent and Trademark Office having canceled the team’s trademark because they feel it is “disparaging to Native Americans”.

So a new head coach has come to town. It’s the TV guy, Jon Gruden right? No it’s his brother, Jay. Hey close enough.

I have the Redskins roster and here are the players I would keep for next year. It’s in alphabetical order so bear with me.
David Amerson: The NC State rookie is actually pretty good.
Barry Cofield: He’s a 300 pounder ffrom Northwestern so he should be smart enough to lose a few pounds.
Kirk Cousins: Didn’t look like the world beater from the week before but he’s still pretty good.
Fred Davis: Stay healthy pal, won’t you?
Reed Doughty: He’s really not that bad as a safety.
Kai Forbath: I know he’s scored very few points but that’s because we stink.
Pierre Garcon: He’s had a record-setting campaign and although he’s no Art Monk, he’s still pretty good.
Robert Griffin III: Great athlete. Could we play him somewhere else?
DeAngelo Hall: Actually a good story as we thought he was done. He’s done quite well if he wants to come back.
