Thoughts on the game

I'll be writing a more in-depth review as well.

That was a brutal game. It sucked the life out of me. Normally I love watching football all day on Sunday, but I was pretty miserable yesterday.

Awful. I had high hopes after the first 3 weeks, but it really felt like we got sent back to earth by a better team in this one.

Is there a reason the Eagles didn't try any deep throws? The longest attempts I can remember are a couple of intermediate passes to GLew in the middle (that didn't connect, obviously). Was Washington concentrating on taking DeSean out of play?

FS LaRon Landry played deep most of the game. That limited what McNabb could do down the field. They didn't blitz much and played coverage. We had some screwups on short and intermediate throws.
