Return Of The King Week I - Redskins 16 - Buccaneers 10

It's almost too bad that the expectations for The Washington Redskins have already been set so high. After last year's fiasco of a season under Steve "Shiny Pants" Spurrier, Redskin fans should embrace 1-0 like a long-lost sister. It's been awhile since these guys have posted a winning record.

As for the game itself, the story was defense and Clinton Portis. The defense put Tampa Bay Quarterback Brad Johnson on his can four times and created turnovers. Clinton Portis ripped off a beautiful 64 yard TD run on his first play from scrimage. Then, as time wound down, he plowed behind the newly refurbished 'Dirtbag' offensive line and killed the last five minutes of the 4th Quarter.

Great football? Not really. A win, oh yeah. The King has returned. There is once more a reason to follow Washington Redskins football.

Update I: Don Banks writes something positive about the Redskins. He seems to have noticed they have a defense. Ringing up 4 sacks and only 10 points allowed definitely started the season off with a bang.

Update II: I need to spread the word. Some people actually like other NFC teams. That will change as Coach Joe fuels the bandwagon up with victories.
