The 0-3 Tampa Bay Buccaneers have missed two field goals so far--of course they have--but still lead 10-0 going into halftime. Because as mediocre as Tampa's been, the Redskins have one-upped their ineptitude in every phase of the game. Starting with much-maligned--and subsequently defended--'Skins quarterback, Jason Campbell.
But even the most strenuous Campbell apologists will have trouble rationalizing today's performance. As the Washington Post's Rick Maese observes:
Oof. Not a good day.
But wasn't this always Campbell's destiny? Like any number of DC athletes before him, he'll be chased out of town by a reactionary fan base, and then go on to prosperity somewhere else. This is the way it works in D.C.; history is doomed to repeat itself, unless Alexander Ovechkin's involved. And this is why the world is cruel and unfair.
