What You Need to Know, in Fewer Than 300 Words

Most interesting nugget: Titans players screaming "thank you Mark Brunell" after the game. (scroll to bottom)

Ready? The defense, special teams and coaching get F's. In HamptonRoads, the offense gets one too. The BaltSun calls the loss "embarrassing" and "inexcusable." Brunell's arm "had all the zip of

an over-the-hill knuckleballer." A Titans LB makes fun of the Skins' trick plays. The offense gets one first down in the third quarter (on a penalty). Phillip Daniels talks with "his eyes watering." Renaldo Wynn says they need to run the bloody ball. Carlos Rogers breaks his thumb.

WashTimes beat reporter calls for Jason Campbell. Fans chant for Campbell and are unhappy throughout, starting a petition to build through the draft. Wynn says the boo-ers were justified. On the other hand, Brunell (a candidate for Sunday Dud) and Jon Jansen say don't give up hope, and Gregg Williams will ask Jeff Fisher for help preparing for Indy.

Columnists: Get ready for 2007 (Dave Fairbank). This season looks trashed (Rick Snider). "...the Redskins are a mess, a team caught between two styles" (Boz). Gibbs may have it wrong (John Markon). There's going to be "some serious heck to pay" (Don Banks).

Bloggers: "The most disappointing Redskins season in living memory" (Dellistacular). The team will finish 8-8 (jointstrikeweasel). "UGH!" (TheRedskinReport). Bench Brunell, in all B's (weareoutoffocus). Or, Brunell was not the problem (THN). This season is over (By Wing and Wave) after Washington's "latest and greatest on-field abortion" (Fanhouse).

Maryland LT and pro prospect Stephon Heyer was benched during Saturday's win, when the Terps' running backs emerged, leading Friedgen to talk about an ACC title. Virginia gets a D- after the loss, while Al Groh says four plays cost Virginia the game.

(Ed. note: If you don't like football you are not American. That's what the media is telling me this AM. Go here or something.)
