Welcome my fantasy brethren to another edition of The Prognosticator, may it
be your fright night. Congratulations to the World Champion Boston Red Sox. What a series it was. The St. Louis Cardinals have plenty to be proud of, dominant pitching and good hitting will keep them competitive for years to come. Thanks everyone for stopping in, I sincerely appreciate that you did.

|San Diego Chargers at Washington Redskins - Sunday 1:00pm |
I had a chance to spend some time in Redskin's country this past weekend. There's nothing like watching a game at a house full of fans who have lived and died with their team for decades. There was an age range from teenagers to a Korean War Vet in his 80's. All lifelong fans of a persecuted team and it was interesting to live their perspective with them. The food was great, the hospitality greater and at the half, up 21-7 on the Broncos, the world couldn't have been brighter. And then the Broncos dropped 38 unanswered on them. Ka-boom. You could tell there was a certain familiarity about the entire situation. Like they were used to it. There was excitement at the half of course but it was very guarded, like they knew there was another shoe and it would drop hard. I was of course jubilant and supportive in my fantasy world, that the Redskins defense held up and only surrendered 7 points to the Broncos over a half was astounding, but they weren't having any of it. It's like they knew what was going to happen next and they were right. It was a quiet second half, there was very little bemoaning, very little blame, just an acceptance that here we go again. There was a great amount of love in the room for Alfred Morris. In Morris they trust. As an outsider looking in I would have expected more RGIII love but no, in that room, it was clearly directed at Alfred Morris and I found that an interesting take at how much they look at him as their savior.
This week the Redskins play a tough Chargers offense that knows how to throw the ball around, which is exactly not what the doctor ordered for the 'skins. It's where they were torn apart last week and quite frankly, may be where they get torn apart again. But the Redskins are about balance and that balance will see them through, unless of course, the Chargers drop 38 on them in the second half.
