In memoriam

Posted: December 17, 2009 in memoriam, NFL

Stank-0 heard about this story yesterday evening and was hoping for the best.  Unfortunately, it is not so. 

Bengals wideout Chris Henry has passed away from injuries sustained from falling out of the back of a pickup truck.  He was involved in a domestic dispute with his fiancee.  He was 26.

The Benglas have had their season of grief in 2009.  Their defensive coordinator lost his wife to cancer in October and now they have lost their promising wideout. 

R.I.P. Chris Henry.  May your soul be in eternal peace.

Hope springs eternal

Redskin Nation will think that Christmas came early.  Cerrato has stepped down!  If Snyder can stop trying to do his best Jerry Jones impersonation, maybe he can lure Mike Holmgren to Washington.

Now Stank-0 knows he went in on Holmgren yesterday, however, he will not need to “save” the Redskins.  They have the pieces in place they just need to start drafting responsibly and being financially conservative.  Hell Stank-0 himself could do that. 

Holmgren can help Zorn or whomever help Campbell and that O line.  The defense is just fine, no need to start fixing anything that isn’t broken. 

Or maybe Bill Cowher will get a phone call?

UPDATE!  The Redskins have made former Tampa Bay GM Bruce Allen the new Redskins’ GM.  My, that was fast.
