It’s a game that I somewhat can’t lose as I’m a stereotypical, long-suffering Redskins fan from the State of North Carolina.

But, today we’re all Russell Wilson fans.

Don’t forget that NC State’e JR Sweezy is starting on the offensive line for Seattle.

    It’s kind of funny to me that a PRO team has a fight song. I’m sure others do, too, but you don’t normally hear them. Maybe while you are in attendance at the game I guess.

    And Plywood, you’re just talking about the benefit of hindsight. Why would the Skins yank RGIII when he had them up 14-0? How would you know THAT is the time to yank him? Why not do it at 7-0? Or wait until it’s 21-0? I mean, he was getting it done. Only now do you know that would have been the ideal time to replace him, but at the time, RGIII was your best QB.

    I believe the Redskins are the only team in the NFL to have thier own marching band that performs at halftime.

    I am a Redskin fan and have no problem with RG3 staying in (as long as doctors says he can go). Don’t forget just a couple years ago when Rivers played on a TORN ACL and all the flak LT took for sitting out. And Cutler all the flak he took for not playing in the playoffs.

    Pretty sure if he had been pulled at the end of the first quarter and they lost the game the media would be saying today how can you pull him, he was your best chance of winning, he had played two games with it injured already………….

    True, they probably couldn’t win for losing. But I do remember him scrambling on one play, and it was all he could do to get to the sidelines before getting hit. If he’s running that badly, it’s probably time to take him out of the game.

    Sorry, TBK, but I was watching that debacle in real time.

    In the first Q, RG3 “was obviously hobbled after falling awkwardly while throwing an incomplete pass” (as per ESPN). In Q2, he was in the game for a total of 6 plays in the entire 2nd quarter. He was sacked, fumbled (although Wash recovered) and threw an INT. How is that “getting it done”? Q3, 8 plays, 21 yards gained on the 1st series, then a 3 play series gaining a total of 4 yards which included a sack and an incomplete pass. Again, how is that “getting it done”?

    He had already been in to have his knee checked. Was he telling the truth about how it felt? I repeat รขโ‚ฌโ€œ the team was up 14 at home in a playoff game. Someone needed to step up and make that call to protect that lead and give Cousins an actual opportunity to get into the game and do something. Heck, when he hobbled to the sidelines on that 9 yd “run” in Q4, there was still 13 minutes left, and Washington was STILL winning 14-13. RG3 was obviously done, but no, they left him out there and then trotted him out for one more failed series when he fumbled and was injured for good.

    I rest my case.

    He led them on two TD drives in the first quarter. I call that “getting it done”. Of course, he was hobbled after that.

    But you’re benefiting from hindsight here.

    And I still contend that it didn’t matter WHO was QB for the skins. They were going to lose this game, regardless.

    Haha – so I can’t say that it was clear to me that RG3 should have been taken out after the ‘Skins were up 14-0 (note my first post) and it was apparent that RG3 was not at his best?

    But you can say that the Skins were going to lose regardless… OK!
