Can we all just get along? There are a lot of Redskin-Panther combos in the stands today, sitting right beside each other.
One thing I'm reminded of every time the Redskins come to town -- Washington had dibs on this territory long before Carolina did. The Redskins were on every Sunday in the Carolinas back when I was growing up, and they forced you to have an opinion about them.
In my case, I couldn't stand them. In a lot of my friends' cases, it means they were huge Redskin fans. A lot of those allegiances remain today.
Those Redskin fans have a lot to cheer about early. On Carolina's first offensive play, Albert Haynesworth first blew it up by getting into Carolina's backfield. Then, DeAngelo Williams fumbled (that's 2 fumbles for DeAngelo this season after he didn't have a single one in 2008). Then, Haynesworth recovered it.
And then, Washington took only two plays to score on a short pass from Jason Campbell to Clinton Portis. It's 7-0, Washington, with only 66 seconds gone in the game.
