Fight For Old D.C.
This afternoon our beloved Washington Redskins make their triumphant return to the playoffs facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Redskins lost to the Bucs 36-35 earlier this season on a phantom two-point conversion by Mike Alstott.
Interesting tidbit of information: Joe Gibbs is the third winning coach in NFL-playoff history with 16 wins in the postseason, tied with former Steelers coach Chuck Noll. If Gibbs is somehow able to get the Redskins to the Super Bowl, he will tie Don Shula with 19 playoff victories. If he is somehow able to win that game, he will tie Tom Landry for the most playoff wins all-time. It should be noted however that Landry and Shula each have two Super-Bowl rings, while Gibbs has three.
HAIL TO THE REDSKINS, BABY!
UPDATE: Ok, the Skins had no business winning that game. That was the ugliest win I have ever seen. Skins prevail 17-10. Oh well, bring on the Seahawks!
