Yesterday was one of those days.
Only this time, there was hope, even though in all honesty, there shouldn't have been.
I can sit here and blame Josh Brown for missing two 47-yard field goals in yesterday's Seahawks 20-17 overtime loss to the Redskins. But I'm not going to.
This loss falls on the defense, plain and simple.
Does anybody realize how pathetic the Redskins offense is? No, I'm not convinced this is a 3-0 team. That team being the Redskins, of course. Not the Seahawks.
But hey, I'm used to this. The Redskins were able to convert on 3rd down 13 out of 18 tries. One of these years, the Seahawks may stop somebody on 3rd down. You want the ugly details? Here you go...(courtesy of NFL.com)

Yesterday's loss was more painful for me because I actually went out in public and watched the game. I watched the game at Wings-To-Go, a local restaurant here in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Great wings, great atmosphere. I'll definitely be back later in the season when the Seahawks aren't on local television.
The next three weeks, however, the Seahawks will be on local TV here. You know who is this Sunday. The battle for the NFC West lead, folks. Maybe this Sunday, the Seahawks defense will get a stop on 3rd down...
