LAST WEEK'S CROWD WAS AGAIN AWESOME!!!
 
--------------------------------------------

NO RG-III?  NO PROBLEM!

A December road game without our starting Quarterback, due to injury - - sounds like conditions that have befallen the Burgundy & Gold Faithful in the past.  But as we keep saying, this season is different.  Behind a strong running game, rookie QB Kirk Cousins shook off a slow start to throw for over 300 yards and 2 touchdowns.  His receivers helped out with solid contributions from everyone, and our Redskins are now sitting in 1st place in the NFC East with 2 weeks to go in the regular season.  

 

Word today from Coach Shanahan is that Robert Griffin III has progressed from his knee sprain to the point of “Barring setbacks, Robert will start the game this week.”  It’s nice to have some draft picks pan out . . . ain’t it?

 

The game this Sunday is one where we will need RGIII’s steadying hand. The Eagles are terrible . . . their Wide Receiver corps is a shambles, with injuries everywhere; their starting Running Back is just now cleared to play after a multi-week concussion injury; the QB they thought would lead them to the Promised Land is now the third stringer; and their Coach - - the longest tenured Coach in the NFL - -  is probably only 2 weeks from the unemployment line.  On paper it shapes up to be a “Turkey Shoot” . . . and that means a big Fat Back of nothing when these two teams get together.  We have beaten them when we shouldn’t have - - and vice versa - - which is why this game concerns me.  Everything we want is right there in front of us, but the Eagles will NOT roll over - - they WILL fight, and with a lesser man under center, I would fear this game.  BUT we have a leader now, a man that will ride out the initial storm the Eagles should come with, and lead us to victory where so many have failed before!

 

One game at a time!
