Re: Redskins vs. Rams Gameday Thread

Funny thing though about Griffin is he didn't have his best day today and we still put up 28 points, 21 on offense. Usually on a day like today assuming we got all the same chances the score would have been 13 to 31. I base this on no deep pass to Hank and certainly no red zone conversions with the old guard.

Ha ha, to true. I think to many fans bought in to much to the good feelings and media attention from last week. Personally I spent all last week thinking to myself that it they gave us way to much respect. We did good but it was way to much for the first game of the season.

Griffin is definitely ahead of schedule but we have to remember he's still a rookie and he still has a bit of a ways to go before he takes that next step as a passer. Sad thing though is he's already a better passer then any QB we've had since Brad Johnson.

Honestly, I was fine with holding out RG3. You don't want him to sit there and hold the entire weight of the game on his shoulders, knowing if he missed the loss would be all on him...

He took responsibility for the loss anyway during the post-game interview. Said he didn't play well enough.

Were you like me and thought if we were going to lose this game it was going to be something like 17-14?

Our defense is supposed to be the strength and they were missing 2-3 starters! I mean WTF.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. At first though -- I was like -- what the hell, RGIII needs to be out there and be what everyone is hyping him to be... to be God.

Re: Redskins vs. Rams Gameday Thread

I want to say this though. Best bad play ever came in the 2nd half when Silverback held onto Quinn for dear life to stop him from getting a clear shot on RG3. Just kind of a weird moment that makes you realize the rest of the team has bought into RG3.

Agreed. Sports are games of emotion at times. Just think how hyped up we get as spectators.

Agreed. We're scoring TDs now and not settling for field goals. Every win is hard to come by. The Browns put up a good fight, the Pats went down to the Cards, the Giants were on the ropes and, of course, the uber talented Cowboys only scored 7 in a loss to the Seahawks.

1-1 after 2 road games to the Saints and Rams is nothing to be ashamed of. We're averaging 35 a game and are plus 5 in turnovers. Now let's take care of business against the Bungles.

Maybe the Rams aren't half bad? Just tossing that out there.

The funny thing too was that I was pissed off as much as everyone else, but Josh Morgan makes this team better and on top of that -- he seems amped up as much as everyone else (including fans). I can't hate him when I see that in a player.

Shanahan is just trying to get a leg up on negotiating Cundiff's next contract.
"Well Billy, Bruce and I have reviewed your contract demands and while we want to resign you we believe your asking price is a bit high. For starters, the St. Louis game where you missed that game tying field goal in the 4th quarter......"
