Redskins fans can breathe a sigh of relief as it's just been announced that assistant head coach for defense Gregg Williams has renewed his contract for another 3 years, reportedly worth $8 million. (Yes, the one great thing about owner Daniel Snyder is his money. It's clearly no object. Case in point: his desire to purchase the ailing Six Flags amusement park franchise.) Earlier it was rumored Williams was a top candidate for the head coaching jobs at St. Louis and Kansas City.
Thanks to Galley readers who clarified the city-to-city wager and Mayor Williams's offer of chili dogs--a respectable bet considering that venerable institution, Ben's Chili Bowl. Props to "utron" for suggesting a barrel of pork.
But it was blogger Duane who took us down memory lane by linking to an age-old post, dating back to last April, by fellow Galley slave Jonathan Last, who envisioned a 16-0 season for his beloved Eagles. This was clearly before the departure of T.O. (for good) and McNabb and the ascendancy of Dettmer and McMahon. One anonymous reader had then predicted the Eagles would lose twice to the Skins. Kudos to him as well as Duane.
The other travesty of last Sunday's game in Philly I had forgotten to mention was the tossing of beer at Clinton Portis's mother (who supposedly fought back before ending up on the sideline). Fans then turned their rage against Eagles coach Andy Reid, who needed security to help him out of the stadium.
