Matt Hasselfug

I think it goes without saying that I'll be disappointed if the Redskins don't beat the Seahawks this weekend in the NFC Wild Card game. Frankly, I'll be disappointed if we don't shellack them beyond recognition. They play in the worst division in the NFC, have precisely one win over the entire post-season field (over Tampa Bay back in Week One! And they've only even played one playoff team since: they lost 21-0 at Pittsburgh), and our rushing defense has vastly outperformed their rushing offense in just a side-by-side comparison. But beyond the statistics, there is this picture of Matt Hasselbeck:

Now, Hasselbeck has since shaved this monstrosity off, but the very fact that he once thought it was acceptable to look like this makes the need to beat the Seahawks less about advancing to face Dallas and more about an imperative to advance the cause of civilization and good taste.
