Week 5 is here, the Redskins are sitting perched smack dab in the middle of everyone else with a 2-2 record, and the undefeated Atlanta Falcons are coming to town.
'A Show of Hands' sounded like a good title, mostly because I couldn't think of a good analogy to use Permanent Waves, with the album cover of Rush using my hometown as a backdrop of the old Balinese Room, which has since been permanently removed thanks to hurricane Ike.
OK, enough of the getting off track; funny, there seems to be a tie between that line and the Redskins homefield advantage, or lack of for that matter. A tough matchup is upon us, with the Falcons somehow managing to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat againsdt a gamely Panthers team.
The Redskins defense still has issues with adjustments in the 2nd halves of games, but the offense has been alot better than anyone expected this season, with RGIII and Morris doing alot of damage and making alot of noise in the NFL rankings. Is Atlanta as good as their record shows, or is it a case of the New Orleans Saints of a few years ago, finding ways to win.
The answer is simple, and discipline plays a big part in it. Its time for the Skins to make 'a show of hands' statement in this game that they're gonna be a team to deal with.
In the end,
