07:56 AM ET 11.16 | On Monday night in Landover, Washington submitted another episode for its theater of the often absurd. The Redskins topped themselves on Monday night when several of them went out of their way to pick a yelling, shoving match with the Eagles long before kick off. Eventually both teams were one big scrum on the Eagles' sideline. By the time the insults, curses and pushes had been broken up by officials, with some Redskins like DeAngelo Hall and Santana Moss still screaming as if they'd driven an enemy off their sacred turf, the Eagles went to their locker room with smoke coming out of their ears. Like they say in the schoolyard, the Redskins started it, but the Eagles finished it.

I got flashbacks of the Raiders beatdown on the Broncos a few weeks back.

Skins suck dawg. In a couple weeks they will be tied with the Cowboys.

I got flashbacks of any number of Cowboys games this season.

Not exactly great timing with that new contract for Donny... the vultures will be circling this dead body today.

Should've waited until after the season.

Dear Mr. Snyder & your Redskins,

Hi. It???s me. Your favorite fan. The only fool stupid enough to root for the Redskins daily in the SI threads. Today is bitter sweet, and exciting for me. After 35 years of devote loyalty, I am now announcing my resignation as a Washington Redskins fan. You can have them. I???m sick and tired of each and every year having a different set of silly faces with headsets and overpaid, under-achieving athletes. But here???s the good news! I am only 30 miles away from Baltimore, so they are willing to take me in as a fan. !@@#$ you. They play real football only a few minutes down the Beltway. I never thought I would be following my boy Jim Zorn over to Baltimore to root for a REAL TEAM. You should check us out sometimes. Between the Washington Redskins and these Washington women, I have aged 15 years in 4 years. No more. Today is a new chapter. I???m going to start dating Hispanic women, and root for the Ravens. The tickets are cheaper in Baltimore. The parking is cheaper in Baltimore. They PLAY FOOTBALL IN BALTIMORE. Something you might now EVER know anything about. Good luck with your latest huge signing in Donovan McNabb, and the rest of your ALL-Star lineup. You???ve really got something going there. Oh, and if you think you can???t sell tickets now, wait till next season. Please take my name off that mailing list. No more fan mail. No more fan discounts. No more announcements. You can keep all that shish amongst yourselves. Thank you Baltimore for welcoming me to a Historic Franchise. I promise to be on my best behavior and I will not disappoint. It???s just going to take me a little while to adjust to winning, is all.

Ugly franchise built on a straw foundation with a shallow owner and overpaid underproducing players. Whats not to like?

November 16, 2010  08:22 AM ET

Well I am sure Mike can now go and buy him some more dogs.

If it was a fight, they would have stopped it in the first period.
The Eagles look downright scary.
