The Skins will have to play better than they did today to beat Dallas....almost blowing a 14 point lead to a 4-10 team in a must win game is inexcusable...

Difference between a rookie QB and Robert Griffin...


unfortunately the Eagles did find a QB

Hard to play at your best that many games in a row, esp with an injured QB. Take it and go home and beat Dallas.

We can't afford to have RGIII holding back next week, sore knee or not...the Skins lose that game and they may be sitting at home watching the play-offs along with Dallas...

Yes. That's why I wanted Cousins today...OK, we'll see how Griffn's knee held up. I don't remember him being hit very often, or running like a magician.

The Ravens are roasting Corey Webster of the Gints. If the GInts lose, we're looking very good.

Today's game was a thankful win and good teams soemtimes need those. Don't let our play today worry you about next week. We'll be at home...against Dallas. The crowd will be up for it. This team is full of high character guys who know what this means. Show up, cheer, win.

Love your post. Unfortunately, I'm a Skins fan, which means I can't not worry :)

It's going to be a long week...

I'm watching the Giants/Browns aka Ravens. This game has a long way to go: 14 - 7 Bal

If you feel that Foles had a terrible game and shows no promise (Shuler) I wont say anything more on that subject.

17-7 now, but it should be 21-7...refs overturned a TD call that was clearly a TD...the ground can't cause a fumble....

Lots of calls in favor of the Giants...Ravens (and Redskins) lost a TD pass mis-called incomplete. Took FG, instead.
