The Redskins game finished something like this. Only it took longer, because Jeff Triplette and the replay crew were apparently getting paid by the hour and wanted to review everything right down to players' sock lengths.
Here's where the game went up in flames.
Skins lead 27-20, driving for dagger TD in 4th quarter.
Portis running for an easy first down inside the 10, somehow falls down in open space one yard shy of the line.
3rd and 1.
3rd and 6. Incomplete.
Blocked because Fred Davis did a half ass job chipping his man Bernard Pollard.
Right there, was the QUINTESSENTIAL NFL moment that I like to call the "Seemingly Innocent, Cascading Series of Unfortunate Events."
This happens to everybody's team. All the time. And it won't be the last for our squad.
Of more concern is this. Trent Williams knee got fucked up. LaRon Landry is singlehandedly keeping the defense relevant. And he's going to either break himself in two hitting like that, or put a fellow teammate on season ending IR.
(Please, please, please make that guy Reed Doughty...)

Was, um, that my "out loud" typing voice?
