This is going to be a good one. Not because the Rams are coming off a 28-0 loss last week and have to travel to Fedex Field to take on the Redskins in their home turf on their opening day, but I will be there cheering them on for a win. If you happen to be watching that game, make sure you look up the 25 yard line on the Redskins side, 18 rows up.
All eyes again will be on QB Jason Campbell. Although his numbers from last week (19/26 completions, 211 yards and 1 TD) look fairly good (19th overall), he did not look like a QB returning for his second year with Jim Zorn and the Redskins’ offense. He looked confused. This will be the game that will tell his future and that with the Redskins. Yes it is week 2, but compared to last year at this time, the Redskins went 7 straight wins after losing to the Giants in Week 1. The SI cover story curse may well be in full affect.
With the talent on the other side of the ball in defence, being rated 21st in the NFL is unacceptable. As the 100 million dollar man, Albert Haynesworth needs his first sack, but the defence cannot win the game.

I lived in Greene County Virginia for about 5 years of my childhood. This span of time was enough to imprint the love of the Washington Redskins (and hate of the Dallas Cowboys) into my life forever, even though I am Canadian and still live in Canada. I am in no way an expert on sports, football, or even the Redskins, but I do absolutely adore them, their fans and their home state(s). My favourite Redskin is and will always be Darrell Green (not because we share the same last name lol). I've adored Chris Cooley since he joined the team from the 2004 draft and love London Fletcher. Hail to the Redskins! See you October 30th in my home town of Toronto.
