It was a tough start to the year on and off the pitch for the Washington football team. Heck, it’s been a tough few decades. So let’s relax the mood a bit as we approach this Sunday’s Halloween showdown with the Denver Broncos.
With a start time of 4:25 East, it’s critical that fans who don’t want to be interrupted during the match have audibles capable of handling distractions in the game of Tricks or Treaters.
One suggestion would include the right karma game of leaving only the best full-size candy treats on the porch. However, the execution of this game must be impeccable and include displaying a sign to take only ‘one each’, otherwise the first few turns or healers will surely take handfuls of it, leaving an empty container and the ability to ring the doorbell while you watch the game closely. CCTV and a cardboard cutout of something creepy might help. It may sound like overkill, but when in doubt always think “What would Bill Belichick do?”
On the pitch, the Washington football team has quite a cast of characters. Coaches will have a game plan to disguise them. But no player represents the fear of Halloween to opposing defenses more than “Scary Terry”. He cannot be disguised. It’s Jason from Friday the 13th. He’s coming to get them and they can’t help it.
And while “Scary Terry” will provide nightmares in defense of the Bronco on Halloween. It is Taylor Heinicke’s Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde game that can scare Washington Football fans the most. Which QB will come to play? Dr Jekyll plays instinctively, he uses incredible athleticism to create pieces out of script. He keeps the defense out of balance with his legs. But oh-my, when Mr. Hyde shows up bad decisions and bad turnovers happen. This Halloween we can all agree we want to see the good when it comes to Taylor Heinicke.
But there is always a place for evil on Halloween. We might not want it from our QB, but we want to see it from our defensive line. No, I am not talking about evil. I’m talking about bringing PAYNE. May the Greek god unleash his wrath on Teddy Bridgewater. And for Jonathan allen, he doesn’t need a nickname, no costume needed. He’s the guy who dresses like a footballer, because, you know, that’s what he is. His business approach on a bank holiday will be the key to victory.
But while some of the scariest monsters a QB can see approach them head on; it’s the one you don’t see coming that makes you “sweat”. The “Predators” you never see coming. QB is losing sleep over these guys.
For Washington football fans, will this Sunday be a trick or a treat? With this team, you certainly never know. Hopefully Ron Rivera and the rest of the coaching staff all have a big “S” on the chest and capes on the back if they have any hope of saving this season.
