Most members of Sibat Media live in the DMV area and year after year, the Washington Redskins constantly let us down. In the past ten years, the Redskins have had two winning seasons (10-6 in 2005 and 9-7 in 2007) and in both of those seasons we lost to the Seattle Seahawks in the playoffs. So, what is it that makes the Washington Redskins so terrible…their drafting.

Ok. So… what have we learned from an exciting week 11 in the NFL?
Well for starters, the New Giants aren’t as good as we thought they were. I thought that they were good but I wasn’t quite ready to crown them NFC East champs yet. Now, I’m reassured of that. Losses to the Colts, Titans, Cowboys (eww) and the Eagles are enough to realize that.
Second, the Raiders (my team) fell back down to earth. After some key wins against the Chargers, Broncos, Chiefs, and Seahawks the Raiders got destroyed 35-3 up in the ketchup bottle. And I expected this. The Steelers came off losses to the Saints and Patriots. Continue reading
