5:54 am
the track. his car finally comes to a halt. the crash looked a lot worse than what it was though. he was okay, a little shaken. but he walked out of the car. jimmy johnson won the race. second now in the points standing behind 50-year-old mark martin. from the ugly incident on the racetrack to the ugly football game in michigan, dave ross was there just back on the red sigh for the monday morning quarterback this morning. not only do you have to endure that game but a late flight to get back here to washington. >> i think the flight was a little bit worse. i don't know that we've seen a wreck like joey had like we saw yesterday in detroit, michigan. that was as ugly as it gets. the locker room was unbearable. >> we just shut off the tv and we're like okay we're done with this. it's over. we'll sulk in silence. you had to deal with the players. >> to a man, they were very professional. the thing you got from talking to the players is they think
5:55 am
they are a very taal thed team and when they lose to a team that they think is infear year to them. the detroit lions have been inferior to everybody since the stock market crashed in 1929. they haven't won in forever. they go out there and totally dominate the redskins. this was not one play that decided the game this was a beatdown for four quartz to a team that hadn't won in forever. the key play i thought right here, here you have jason campbell going over the middle. we think that clinton portis will get in here. he does not get there so we've got a slot on fourth and goal. the i thought it was the right call, go for it. a stretch play instead of running portis up the middle with mike sellers leading. they try to go wide and jim zorn got criticized for that play, not using maybe their strength which is up the middle and running with a full back lead. i like the call to go for it on fourth down. just did for the like the
5:56 am
execution. since that play, they never seemed to have any momentum the rest of the way to get back in the end zone until it was too late. >> that is the thing that really bugs me. the end of the game, you have two drives that the redskins marked down the field. why don't they do that for the first three and a half quarters? >> that is the question we'll ask of jim zorn today. one thing i want to know is why not do the no huddle. the only time they seem to be successful is whether they go no huddle. when they've gotten back in the game 13-7, campbell throws a key interception. i don't know that you can lay this at the feet the jason campbell. a lot of people today will want to do that. this was a collective team collapse. when you lose to the lions, the lions, it is not one guy. it is 11 gays on each side of the ball and that is what you saw yesterday. >> it was a broken down locker room after the game last week when the redskins won. what happens now? you always try to find something to take away from the
5:57 am
game. >> that is what we asked jason campbell. he said the politically correct thing, we still have 13 games to go and it is only 1-2 in the season. yes, they can turn it around from here but you can't see, with the schedule they have coming up down the road, if you can't beat the lions, you barely beat the rams, you got the buccaneers coming in on sunday. you got to figure out how to get a win. i think they would take the bad win if you will against the rams all year long if they could get those. it was an awful loss to detroit. last year, they lost to the rams at home, kept them significantly oust playoffs. who knows what yesterday's loss might be? >> if there is any good news, you said at least they are a playing detroit. tampa didn't have 100 yards against their game against t giants so maybe. >> let's in the panic yet but i think everybody is pan you canning. >> the fans are panicking. this is our man dave ross with the than, tom cruise, not
5:58 am
toover shadow you. so let's hold on for the story behind this one. we'll make you wait. >> i'm taller than he is. >> i think he's got you by half an inch. >> that plus a whole bunch more coming up in just two minutes. we'll see you at six.
