Redskins vs Detroit. A Loss For The Ages.

The Redskins Went To Motown, And Got Turned Around.

The Skins lost to the only team with the worst losing streak (19-0) in the NFL. After not having a win since the day before Christmas Eve of 2007, the Skins granted the Detroit Lions a 19-14 gift today at Ford Field.

"The game seemed strange", said Skins QB Jason Campbell.

Watching it was even stranger. (Video).

"It wasn’t a great team. It wasn't a great team at all", said DeAngelo Hall. "We just didn’t play."

Something must be done to see why the players aren't playing.

Do we need to call in the team from CSI (some would say the loss was a crime) to find out why the players aren't playing? Kojak? Inspector Gadget, perhaps?

Okay, that was harsh.

Suffice it say, it will be a long week in the annals of Washington sports talk radio this week. Believe me.

The Good
**The Skins scored in the red zone (after seemingly being unable to in last week's game against the Rams)
**Quarterback Jason Campbell threw for 2 TDs (vs. no TDs last week)
**London Fletcher had 18 tackles (he has to be the hardest working LB in the NFL)
**Santana Moss rushed for 178 yards, with 1 TD.
**The team scored more than 9 points

Just a few positives in a spiraling game that definitely could have used a jump start.
