Best Redskin Game of 2012?

What was the best Redskins game of 2012 and why?

There are a lot of choices you could choose from, but I'm pretty sure you all would choose from one of the following:

A) Saints game- It was the first time we saw our rookie QB. It was also a glimpse of how good our team (offensively and defensively) could be.

B) Vikings game- It was the first game we saw RG3 run for a long TD run, and the first game back for RG3 since he was knocked out the last game.

C) Dallas game thanksgiving- It was the first time the Entire nation could see RG3, we beat Dallas in Dallas on thanksgiving, and the butt whooping we put on them was great as well.

D) Baltimore game- We beat our rivals right up I-95, and we beat them with a rookie QB, a fairly new kicker, and in OT. They obviously went on to win the super bowl, making that win a little better. Only negative is that it was when RG3 got hurt.

E) Dallas game (NFC East Title)- We won the NFC East and beat our rivals at our place and made Romo look like Romo for the rest of the offseason. But it was a very injury depleted game for both teams. Not as good as the other Dallas game in terms of just the game aspect and not the other factors, IMO.

F) Other game


I'd have to go with the Dallas on Thanksgiving game. RG3 lived up to the hype for national TV and then some and got Everyone talking at that point. Its was all sorts of big plays, Dallas made it a game late, but we still prevailed. It really set the tone for the rest of the season, to win 7 straight.

Really??

Best game - final regular season game. Beating Dallas at home to send them limping back to Dallas with Romo crying and Ryan fired. A-Train rocks the record and pummels Cowboys into a pulp.

NFC EAST CHAMPS!

I'm stunned you'd pick four games and not one of them would be the home/season finale against our hated rivals giving us our first division title in 13 years.

It's like asking someone what their favorite Star Wars movie is and leaving out Empire Strikes Back as an option.

Or favorite Jackson Five member and no mention of Michael.

I was going to put that up as option 5, but other than the NFCE title and it being Dallas..it honestly wasn't that great of a game compared to the other 4 games (IMO). I love the passing game. We had no passing TDs. And RG3s big play was a slow-limping 20 yard TD run (against a slow hurt DeMarcus Ware).

Don't get me wrong I enjoyed that game, but not as much as the others. The first Dallas game was far better.

Re: Best Redskin Game of 2012?

Either Dallas game was great, but the swing of emotions I went through in the 4th quarter and into overtime against Baltimore was intense. This one for me personally was the greatest game we had in 2012.

NBC airing the Redskins fans singing HTTR after Morris's final TD against Dallas on Dec 30th was my favorite moment.

But the Baltimore game was my favorite game just due to the range of emotions experienced.

That was a great game, Griffin showed y he was our leader coming back in. And then KC closing when he had to was awesome.

I put it up as an option, maybe we can get a poll with it as well.

But I will respectfully disagree with that being the best game overall last year. The only reason fans liked this game was because of the factors or the game and what was at stake. But if you look at it as just a game, it wasn't that good as other games. If you love the ground game, and depleted football teams (Bryant was injured, Austin was injured, Dallas didn't have either MLB, Ware had no shoulder, RG3 had no knee) going at it and it being rivals, yeah then it was a great game. I love games that have big plays, TD passes with some rushing TDs, and both teams playing at full strength so theres no excuses of "well so and so wasn't healthy.."

To use your star wars example, I left out Attack of the Clones or Phantom Menace. Or I left out Marlon Jackson.

For me, Dallas on Thanksgiving. Because a lot of my wifes family came into town for Thanksgiving. And most are Dallas fans...

I heard nothing but smack talk that entire week leading up to the game. I saw nothing but crying after.

They certainly did not like my toast of "Thankfully Romo is a cowboy and RG3 is not... Cheers"

Who cares about who was hurt? That's never a legitimate excuse in sports. The best game in my opinion is defined by what's on the line, what's at stake. My vote would be a the last game against DAL. That win incorporated the win against NYG in a sense (division title).

The regular season finale.

RG3 was obviously playing on one good leg, and was still killing the cowboys even with a substandard night passing.

Alfred Morris made the case that he should have been in consideration for ROTY along with Griffin and Luck.

(I wonder, was the cowboys defense trying to stop the pass first that night, could help explain RGs low passing numbers and why AM and RG3 beat them so bad on the ground then.)

And our defense looked like an improved version of the Steelers D. Linebackers crowding the line of scrimmage, and confusing Romo as who was blitzing or dropping back. Line was solid. And our corners did a good enough job on their WRs.

Ah tough choice to make.. I have to go with Cult on the last game, the team didn't really play that well, but just well enough to win the game. Don't get me wrong, I was really happy at end of the game. I think the game against Baltimore is best one for me, Redskins showed a huge heart and strength on the field. Teams we had before Griffin came, once our sexy Rexy goes down then game is immediately over. But now with this team, we showed everybody that we can win even without our superstar player.

I am going to put an honorable mention in for the Cleveland game. That was when we knew that this was a different team from years past. We were without our star qb, going against a team that was trying to step up, and without rewatching it, my memory says that the whole team stepped up and won a should win game. All in all any of the last 7 games were excellent, but for the best one I go with the finale. The Morris TD where no defender was on the tv screen while he jogged in ought to be iconic for Morris.

First place: Beating Dallas to be NFC East Champs

Honorable mention: Beating the Ravens at the last second with Cousins at the helm. Made for a great Monday.
