I have to agree, Ed. Besides that, they definitely play not to lose rather than playing to win. What happened to the Joe Gibbs known for second-half adjustments, to the tune of an 86-11 record with a halftime lead during his first tenure? Now in his second tenure, the team has already lost 11 games in which they led at halftime - just since 2004.
I will always love Gibbs for the Super Bowl wins he brought to the Redskins but right now, he looks and coaches like a terrified old man. I want to believe he has some magic left in him but it's getting harder to think that.
