In fact, I don't think feeling proud is out of the question.
Yeah, a whole bunch of things went wrong in this game.
It's normal for a few things to go wrong. But we had a whole bunch of them happen, all in one game. All in a CLOSE game. All in a close, division, ROAD game.
And we were in it, anyway.
Other Redskin teams, after a game like this, I'd be heading for Tailgate. Maybe wondering what kind of draft we might have. I'd be mentally getting into "maybe next year" mode.
But this team? I'm not feeling that way.
I could see this team winning the NFCE. And by that, I'm not saying "well, we aren't mathematically eliminated, yet". I mean I could see this team legitimately deserving to win it.
And, frankly, I wasn't that optimistic, when the season started. Right now, after the way this team has played, I'm more optimistic than I was after Week 1.
Right now, as I type this, I'm thinking of a line from Full Metal Jacket: "Private Joker is silly and he's ignorant, but he's got guts, and sometimes guts is enough."
I'm proud of this team. Right now. After this game.
