A few months ago, I wrote about hope.

The birth of a new season of Redskins Football always seems to engender optimism within. For me, anyway. This year was no different. We had a new coach, a guaranteed Hall of Fame coach, no less. Yes, we had problems, but every team has problems. Mike Shanahan was going to change the culture of the team, dammit! I think we all hoped for a playoff spot, but more realistically, considering the disaster that was 2009, thought a 3-4 game improvement would happen.

The season started out with great promise - a win over the hated Cowboys, followed by a disappointing but somewhat encouraging loss against the Texans. Our offense was clicking in that game, everyone looked great. When the defense would figure out how to put it all together...

Then a set back against the Rams, followed by two great wins against the Packers and Eagles. And we were back in the playoff discussion. Sadly, that was the high point of the season. Five games in? How could that be the high point?

I watched "Henry Poole is Here" a couple of months ago...
