Josh Morgan has taken a lot of (deserved) heat for his penalty earning stunt in the final minutes of Sunday’s game. But as reader Matt asked me via email, does it belong on the list of biggest Redskins bonehead plays?
Boz did a chat yesterday, and the first question addressed just that.
Plenty will feel that way. You can’t cut him but that’s as bad a penalty as any Skin has taken in the last two minutes of a game. It’s not the worst. But it’s on the short list.
Josh (Please, Gimme 15) Morgan now takes his place with Headbutt Frerotte, Double-Time-Out Gibbs, Swinging-Gate Zorn, Keep-Your-Hat-On Westbrook, and the botched PAT snap vs Tampa Bay in the final seconds to produce a (17-16) loss.
Does Morgan earn the knucklehead crown? What do you think is the biggest Redskins blunder?
BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER...
* Jayson Werth and Bryce Harper make an odd but effective pair at the top of the Nats lineup.
* Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker are done for the season.
* The NHL lockout could last all season, so some players are seeking overseas alternatives.
* Jason Reid says the Redskins have a long season ahead of them
* Tracee Hamilton says the NFL replacement refs are officially a problem.

QUOTE OF THE NIGHT
Ovi, on the NHL lockout:
“If the League [NHL] continues to insist on their [demands], then it will take a full year. That’s because we are not going to cave in. Then I will spend the entire season in the KHL. It’s an absolute reality.”
