He definitely didn't look like P Manning. He didn't have the 2nd gear we had seen earlier, but he still moved well enough to cause defenders to hesitate, and that is what makes the zone read plays effective. I also thought he scrambled pretty good, and Saturday he will be one week further removed.

It'll be tough no doubt, and a healthy Robert Griffin III improves our chances

I don't think he can be 100% until the brace comes off, and it's probably too soon for that.

Seattle will be the biggest challenge since the bye, because they're the first healthy and dominant defense we face. It's a fascinating match up as the two rosters are very close talent-wise, and both teams believe they can win.

I don't believe the Seahawks are the best playoff team from the NFC though.

He looked more mobile than he did against Philly that's for sure.

I think he's just being cautious more than anything, and that brace has gotta be annoying too.

When was the last time Manning ran for 60 yards in a game? lol

I also think that knee brace is limiting him.

I think the brace slows him down but yea, I think hes definitely being cautious. Some plays he looked pretty explosive.

On an unrelated note, wtf was up with the field? The it looked tore up before the game even started and looked like that slowed all runners a bit. Hopefully will be good to go by Sunday.

FedEx is a high use facility. It's surface is pretty bad. Lots of painted dirt. I've been on it with no one else around and got to see it up close. Plus it had just rained/snowed so it was pretty soft.

I think it's the brace. Those braces really protect your knee, but when it comes to coming out of breaks and juking, it's pretty hard. Not only that, it is heavy, and as the game goes on, it really wears out your leg.

Re: RG3 cleared to play (update)

I sometimes wear a brace for running and I can't stand it. It definitely restricts your movement enough to annoy you. I'm sure they have that thing on fairly tight too. You can see he kinda runs with a little hitch in his step, no doubt it's the brace doing that.

It's supposed to be a 3-4 week recovery time, perhaps this week he can go with a sleeve vs the brace? Or maybe he'll just continue with the brace, I mean if he can run for 60 yards with it how much of an issue is it really?

Of course its a precaution but I believe its mostly to keep his mind off the thought of re injury. 90% mental 10% precaution. IMO

Did you see that hit he took in the Dallas game last week where he stayed down for a few seconds? He wasn't hurt but extremely nervous about getting up on his feet not sure what to expect. Once he got up he was fine and ran with a little more confidence the rest of the game. It's a mental thing more than anything at this point.

Agree with this observation. How can the Redskins be one of the most valuable franchises in the NFL and have "CRAP" for grass and a field. Come on Snyder, buy some terf and fix this stuff before Sunday! Geez! I know our team was going "Old School" with all the runs last Sunday night, but can our field not be so old school?

It looked to me like he stayed down because he fell right on the ball and got the wind knocked out of him a bit.

I thought he stayed down so he could hear the collective gasp, and following silence as 80000+ people held their breath till he stood up.

exactly. And Snyder wants to host a super bowl. Your field has to be nice first and foremost before you can go to the next step (stadium accessibilty)
