And We Watch These Games For Fun??

 

Iíve decided to ask Santa for a home defibrillator because I canít take many more games like Sunday without keeling over.  The ups, the downs, and the primal screams I let out as our franchise QB morphed into Gumby on that hit from Ngata, was almost more than I could take.  But we beat a good team at home, and confidence is sky high right now.

What was so encouraging about the game for me was how well the Rokies performed (ROOKIES RULE!!)  The best plays of the day were made by our Rookie QBs, Running Back, Punt Returner and Kicker.  Factor in the offseason signings of Morgan and Garcon, who both had big TD catches Sunday, and we have an Offense that has the potential to be great for a long time!

The Defense continued with its ďbend but donít breakĒ mentality and, true to form, they stepped up and made the stops when needed. The three-and-out in OT, following our game-tying drive to end regulation, had to discourage the Ravens and their fans who must have felt they had the game won when Rice scored to put them up 28-20.  DeAngelo Hall still scares me, but at this point we donít seem to have an option.

As we look forward to Cleveland, the big question on everyoneís mind - - - will we wear the gold pants?  So . . .while that is probably NOT the biggest question heading into Sundayís game, I thought Iíd lighten the mood.

Redskins Nation received the best news it could with the diagnosis of a mild LCL sprain, and RG3 may be under center Sunday.  His father, RG2, said #10 would start, but Garcon let it slip during an interview that Cousins will get the start.  My opinion is RG3 starts because the Garcon slip-up sounds like vintage Shanahan mind games, but who knows.  While the fans would love nothing more than to continue this magical run, RG3ís health and future have to come first.  After watching the poise displayed by Mr. Cousins on and off the field Sunday, I feel confident we can win this week with him at QB.  

The Browns have been on a run themselves lately, and are tough at home, but they just donít have the fire power on offense to match us score-for-score.  I think we pull away at the end to raise our record to 8-6!

Pepsi Max Rookie of the Week ~ Winner Week #13 ~ RGIII

Nominee, Week #14 ~ Alfred Morris

GMC "Never Say Never Moment of the Week" ~ Week #14

Nominee - Kirk Cousins

Cousins completes comeback victory: As he was marching the Redskins down the field in an attempt to tie up the game in the final minute against the Ravens, QB Robert Griffin III was injured on a scramble and had to leave the game.  Rookie backup QB Kirk Cousins entered the game and picked up where RGII left off, hitting WR Pierre Garcon for a touchdown and then forcing overtime on a run play for the two-point conversion.  In overtime, K Kai Forbath booted a 34-yard field goal to provide the Redskins with their fourth consecutive win.
