After last week's disappointing pre-season performance it was, well, less disappointing to watch the Redskins lose this week. The Redskins only lost to the Patriots by a field goal. Since only the first half counts in pre-season (that's when the starters play), Jason Campbell and team battled the Patriots to a 17-all tie at the half -- that's progress.
Cooley broke the stagnation by catching a pass and running down the sideline for over 70 yards. Now that's excitement. I finally got a good look at the guy whose running style is described as a "broken beer truck" -- how apt! That lumbering thunder-wagon has got great hands and is a potent weapon, whether blocking or recieving. Lumber on!
