Redskins Coming To Toronto!

Posted By Mercedes Green On Oct 28 2011 @ 8:54 am In Washington Redskins | 2 Comments

I cannot wait until Sunday.  My entire family is joining me to watch our favourite team play minutes from our homes.  No matter the score or outcome, this will be one of the best days in my life for sure.  I’ve been to a few Redskins home games over the past few years, but seeing them at the Rogers Centre will be a whole new experience.  What I am extremely bummed about is that Chris Cooley is on IR and won’t get to see him play or the potential, record ending streak of London Fletcher, if he can’t get his hamstring pull worked out.  Hopefully they are at least on the sidelines.

At the beginning of the season I, like most people, were assuming this wasn’t going to be a difficult game for the Redskins as it’s the Bills.  However, the Bills are a contender this season and the Redskins are struggling to keep up.  The Bills are also coming off a bye week so I’m sure their coach didn’t give all their players 5 days off in a row instead of practice like the Skins got.

Looking at the #s it’s clear how and who can win this game.  Defense, defense, defense.  The Redskins have talent to keep the Bills slightly better offense at bay and with the Bills’ horrible defense rankings, maybe the Redskins can finally get their running game back with Ryan Torain as Tim Hightower is out for the season.

For the Bills, they do not consider this a home game and I’m insulted by what Bills’ George Wilson said about us.

“The fan support in Toronto is a night-and-day difference from what we have in Buffalo (at Ralph Wilson Stadium). For the most part, it’s a show. You see just as many jerseys for the opposing teams as you do the Bills. They cheer for any big play regardless of whichever team makes it.”

They cheer for any big play regardless of the team?  Make sure you keep an eye and ear out for section 130, row 9 George.  You will not hear a peep for any plays your team makes from these Torontonians.
