The Loser Papers – 2018 Edition VII

Did we win? When our last edition was published, the Redskins boasted a 2 game lead on the rest of the division, and a QB who, while not able to throw the long ball, was an efficient game manager, able to take what the defense gave and put a check in the win column. That seems like a year ago now, and while the Skins are not mathematically eliminated, they certainly seem to be circling the drain. To tell the truth, the editors here at TLP debated whether to even publish this edition. But here we are, bringing you, our faithful readers, a story from The Florida Times-Union:

With the victory over the Bucs, the Skins took a two game lead over the rest of the division, despite devastating injuries along the offensive line. Although they gave up ample yardage, the defense stiffened in the red zone, and took the ball away four times. Surely, this was a game this Tampa Bay team should have won. Let’s find out from The Tampa Bay Times what happened:

The Loser Papers – 2018 Edition V

Wow, this season is becoming fun, albeit a lot of work for the editors of TLP. Back to back divisional wins have been rare in recent history, and sacking Sheli Manning 7 times in a great defensive effort, seemingly even rarer. How great was it to see the sad sack QB pouting hit after hit?

Along with the stellar defensive play, the resurgence of Adrian Peterson made this the editors favorite game of the season. To celebrate, we bring our loyal readers a trifecta of NY newspaper articles. The first comes from the pages of The New York Daily News:

The sweetest job the editors of TLP have is to publish issues from the scumbag town of Dallas. It makes us downright giddy. You can’t fool us, that caravan of folks coming up from South America is marching to Arlington to see their favorite team. Before the game ended with a resounding DOINK, the Redskins were thoroughly outplaying the Cowchips, though it wasn’t reflected on the scoreboard. But how did justice prevail?

Let’s find out from The Dallas Morning News.

The Loser Papers – 2017 – Edition IV

Finally, we managed to beat Seattle in their stadium. It is so rare for the Redskins to win a game going away; they always have to make it interesting. It was nice to see the other team make the mistake of going for 2 too early in the game, but when Wilson found a wide-open receiver for a TD with 1:40 left on the clock, I thought this edition of TLP would never go to print. I need to know how this happened. Maybe The Seattle Times can shed some light on the subject:
