It’s been a rough week. I get it. But are your mother f–king kidding me?:
Lindell made a 51-yard attempt that didn’t count because the Redskins called timeout just as the ball was snapped. Coach Joe Gibbs then tried the same tactic again, but consecutive timeouts aren’t allowed when attempting to freeze the kicker. The resulting 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty gave the veteran Lindell a much easier kick. His game-winner extended his streak to 17 consecutive made field goals.
Joe Gibbs didn’t know that you can’t call back-to-back timeouts. So, instead of attempting a 51 yarder, Lindell knocked in a chip shot to beat the Skins with four seconds left in a game they were winning from the opening possession. Not to mention that they absolutely had to have this one for their lingering playoff hopes, and more importantly, for Sean Taylor. What a complete joke this team is. Excuse me while I go drive my car into a god damn bridge embankment.
