Re: Redskins at Saints Post Game Thoughts

I gave my "non-RG3" game ball to AlfMo. He never had one easy run at all yesterday, and all of his yard were hard earned. They were prepared for us trying to run the ball on them, and we stuck with it even though it wasn't working. But doing that definitely helped take pressure off RG3 to have the game that he did. It's important to stick with the run when it isn't working, and that's what we did.

The media is definitely giving Griffin his credit. However, what I find funny is how before the game the media was saying the skins were walking into a buzz saw. 1. Playing for Payton 2. The players being reinstated 3. Vindication for the penalties placed upon them by the NFL. 4. Etc., etc.

Today I'm hearing how the Saints are a different team and had to many distractions.

Not that it matters but I feel like the media is now trying to detract from what the Skins did yesterday.

Niles paul was supposed to be the next shannon sharpe according to alot of the idiots on es. Thats one of the reasons i was labled a troublemaker and eventually booted off. I disagreed. Lol. Im hoping davis shakes the drops off. Though he did make a nice effort to get open and snag that beautiful throw by rg3. There are a handful of guys id rather see cooley than. My point was not that i dont like cooley or think he has a little left in the tank but when we cut him some people were giving up on the season.

Re: Redskins at Saints Post Game Thoughts

Lot of guys missing from that Poll Fletcher and Wilson were IMO the clear defensive MVP's, IMO if that poll read "besides Griffin Fletcher and Wilson" it would be better. Most fans don't know what they're looking at with CB's so unless there's an INT or a corner blitz that works you're not going to hear their name, Wilson was huge. Gomes was my runner up so I voted for him.

Morris had a good game he found the holes the line made on his TD's, got into the second level a couple times later in the game, made some yards with his vision mostly late when their D was gassed and some nice moves at the second level, not going to diminish what he did, it just didn't have the play making impact that Wilson's HUGE defended passes, Fletcher's TD saving backside pursuit, or Gomes' INT + return that lead to a TD, along with his solid work in run support and even some pressure on Brees. Gomes actually had a monster game.

IMO the difference between them and Morris yesterday is simply that those were "plays made" at crucial moments that often didn't get made in the past versus a very solid all around run performance that will make a lot of fantasy owners happy (at least for a week or two) , but none the less is something that Mike Shanahan could seemingly get our of his left shoe, or the spare tire from his car. Again not putting down Morris at all, he could be the next big thing, but he's just joined (in no order):

Helu, Royster, K Williams, Ryan Torain, Tatum Bell his name sake and successor scant few months later: Mike Bell, Reuben Droughns, Olandis Gary, Travis Henry, Mike Anderson and etc. as RB's who look(ed) good in Shanahan's scheme...

Re: Redskins at Saints Post Game Thoughts

I think we should give kudos to our GM together with Shannahan not only for making the biggest trade in our history, but for all the late round draft choices that helped us win that game.

Unfortunately there's one idiot who disagrees, Colin Cowherd. He blamed it on the environment, whatever.

Pet topic of mine. It is something you notice more and more as you get older, the Media is a never ending narrative that changes to suit their needs and fill their air time/pages/blogs.

Anyone remember when LaCanfora cited an anonymous source "close to the team" that John Beck was the starter and the competition between him and Rex was a sham? The source was Vinny Cerrato ON THE RADIO! Word for word match. Only Jason didn't bother to mention that it was something crazy eye Vinny said off the cuff over the air, he pretended it was an anonymous source because that sounds a lot better than Vinny talking out his a$$.

Brett Favre retirement was almost entirely a media creation, every couple months an ex team mate on a radio station would speculate that they "thought he would come back" and every time this would be reported as "sources close to favre say he's going to come back"...

Back when Peyton hadn't won a super bowl the media was already setting up a "can't win the big one, is he the next Dan Marino" narrative.

It's not that they speculate, it's that they PRE SPECULATE, like "okay if this happens THIS WILL BE THE STORY LINE"

This year we have the "tebow is going to be a distraction to Sanchez" pre-narrative.

It's everywhere, it's never ending it's nearly preditory (or vulture like) and it changes and morphs...

So no surprise what 24 hours ago were reasons that the Saints were going to trounce the Skins 24 hours later are now reasons why the Skins don't deserve credit.

The media wants to be seen as omnipotent or at least totally authoritative... So they change the narrative after the fact to fit the hindsight. They also do things like predicting incredible likely outcomes which end up overall being very bad predictions; such as picking all last years good teams to be good, and all last years bad teams to be bad, on an case by case basis they are likely to be correct, (the colts are going to be bad again! Well no s***) but overall they look like fools because the NFL is not so predictable... But of course they don't focus on what they get wrong.

Re: Redskins at Saints Post Game Thoughts

Mike and Kyle Shanahan get my game ball. Mike for having the guts to stay committed to the youth movement. Starting RGIII and Alfred Morris. Trusting Cousins as second string quarterback. Kyle for sucking in his pride and catering the offense to RGIII talents. The video clip of Donovan McNabb must have hit home because Kyle did exactly what Donovan complained about, he adjusted the offense to RGIII talents. I swore I was watching the Baylor spread offense. I want to see how the offense progress as teams scheme against it. I live in St Louis, so I will be at the game Sunday with my family. I hope to be singing Hail to the Redskins as the Ram fans file out of the stadium.
