Just wanted to say what's up.

I know it's a big game for ya'll, but it's even bigger for us if we want to stay alive for the wild card.

I know the G-men just whooped that Packer ***, but anyone in the East knows that you throw aside all previous games and records for a divisional matchup, since they know each other like the back of their hand.

Clearly the Giants look like the best in the East right now, but since a lot of guys on here didn't respect RGIII and the Skins before the first game, I know you guys do a helluva lot more now.

I'm not really trying not to be a homer, but I honestly believe that after the Giants, the Redskins are the second best team in the division right now, especially since the Cowboys are consistently inconsistent and the Eagles, well.... yeah.

What do you guys think?

My honest assessment is that rg3 is the real deal and could cause us problems for years, but I rest in the confidence that d Snyder will find a way to screw things up. Sorry.

your definitely right about division games, with as bad as the eagles have been playing I think they're going to beat Dallas. Not gonna lie I thought RG3 was a bit overrated n didn't worry but woww. You guys are lucky to have him and he'll win you plenty of games. As of you guys being the 2nd best idk bout that for now. The record says show but talent wise not yet. Don't worry tho you'll be there soon. And as for the game this week I think the Giants just have too much confidence right now n it's too big of a game too lose. However I wouldn't be shocked if we come out flat and you guys hand it too us. I think we win a close one tho

RG 3 is the real deal... no question.

but my loyalty to Big Blue requires absolute and undiluted hatred for all other Teams NFCE.

It's a BIG game for us too by the way, we must beat the Skins to further the distance between us, you and them (Eagles and Boys)

This will be the toughest game for us this year. I think RG3 will have a big game. He seems to shine on the big stage.

Hello Redskin fan. I'm a old timer 42 year old Giants fan who remembers when the Redskins were good. I have a lot of respect for the fans and franchise. It has been a tough road these last 15+ years being a fan and I'm honestly glad the Redskins are relevant again. Your quarterback is amazing in his first year and the sacrifices the franchise made trading for him were steep. It was a bold move. I think you have an excellent shot at the playoffs this year and a very good chance beating us this year at home.

A few years ago I took a trip to Fedex to root on the Giants. The fans were excellent. Kind, decent, honest but fed up fans. Nobody ever treated me with disdain or disrespect. So unlike Philadelphia. I've gone back each year since and I'll be heading down there on Monday to see the game. I don't like your stadium much and your owner is a meddling fool, but your team is finally making a comeback. I think things are looking up for your team for years to come.

May the best team win on Monday. No injuries and if we lose the division somehow, I'd rather it be to the Redskins. I'm so dang sick of the Cowboys and Eagles. Take care.

Thanks for the kind words, Scoop.

I honestly never had any ill-will towards the Giants or their fans. I live in the D.C. area, and like NY, its full of people from all over the country with different allegiances. Giants and Skins fans seem to always get along just fine for some reason.

Yeah, of course I, like any fan, want the my team to win against whomever we play, but I just don't seem to have that hatred that I do against the Cowboys and their fans, as I'm sure you guys have for the Eagles and their fans.

While we pretty much have been irrelevant for the past 15 years, the Cowboys and Eagles (and their fans) continued to be blowhards and loudmouths, all the while you guys quietly went about your business, and eventually won two titles. I have respect for that.

It just seems to me Giants and Redskins fans get along more than a combination of any of the other two, and I'm just happy we are slowly earning the respect of a team that has been unquestionably the class of the NFC east for the past decade

Here's to hopefully a memorable Monday Night game, and may the best team win! Cheers!

Well one thing to remember is the giants have a horrible record on MNF. I know we destroyed GB the other night but Primetime in general other then playoffs usually not good. Good chance for RG3 to shine. Skins could take a huge step towards playoffs with a win here. Giants laid two huge eggs against steelers and Cinn.


Bye week helped as we took down a team on a five game roll. However the victory came at a Hugh cost. Lost Brown prob for the season with the broken fib. Also secondary finally looked good with Philips back allowing Rolle to roam and now looks like back to square one with Phillips re tweaking same knee. We signed to RBs off the street today.

I'm sorry I just don't see the Giants laying an egg here.

They know how good RG3 is, they always play good on the road. They are also all rested.

Now Washington can definitely win this but I just find it hard to believe that the Giants are are not going to do everything in their power to win this game.....it puts us up 3 on the Redskins and depending what happens on Sunday night either 3 or 2 ahead of Dallas. The Giants CANNOT lose this game and go 2-3 in the division and let the Redskins go 3-1 in the division.Now if we won that Eagles game back in week 4, then I would say maybe. Damn losing that Eagles game hurt.

Hey Mike1958 ...... I agree with the MNF record, however; let me remind you that in 1985 - 1986 season, our Giants played the 49ers on MNF and were down 17 to nothing at the half and went on to win 21 - 17 in the now famous Bavaro drags Ronnie Lott game. We've laid down some stinkers but we've also had a few shining moments too.

Honestly, MNF is about injuries, coaching, teams, weather, and who makes the best plays. The teams in the NFL now are so closely tiered that any mistake can cost a team the game.

The Giants are fortunate to have some really great coaches who seem to do better the second and third times they play a team. Having one good look at RG3 will help us... how much though, is the question.

Throw out history here, the better team will win. Let's hope for no injuries and a good officiated game.

This is how I see it, Who ever wants the Win more will get it, so we all know both teams want it more..You will see a tough football game, down to the Last minute........so it comes down to, who gets the breaks on Turnovers , >>> fumbles, interceptions, and returns, and of course scoring. I don't see how the Giant's are going to stop RGlll ! He is determined . On the other hand, how are the Redskins,going to stop Eli.........we have a Mini Super Bowl, Brewing here ! Tough game to call !


Go Giants !

There is a cash lot near the stadium. I think it's 30 dollars to park. I parked there last time. It was a 4 minute walk to the stadium and there were a ton of Giant fans there to tailgate with. This year I have a parking pass so I'll be in the stadium. Get there early though, at least 2 to 3 hours early the traffic is a nightmare near DC.

Skins fan here. As much as I hate to admit it, I have nothing but praise for the Giants team*, their workmanlike attitude and their fan base. This is going to be a very good rivalry going forward.

I agree that the Skins vs. Giants rivalry could well shape up into one of the best rivalries for years to come. That last game ripped my heart out, but I couldn't have been more proud of Robert Griffin hanging in there all the way down to the wire. I expect more of the same this Monday night. From here on out, every game for the Skins is a playoff game. If we don't make it, that's okay this year. We are shaping up into a team that is a vast improvement over the past several years.

I thought you were the 2nd best team since the season began, and said so way back then.......you have not disappointed me.
I think we will be better able to stop your O this time, but with the Giants anything is possible- from losing to Cinn to whomping the 49rs

Eli has never had the "phenom" days like RG and Cam, but he still had what a good player needs. glad the giants stuck with him and brought him along the way they did. you guys are good, RG is good, but all that aside ,we need this game, we want the division and I really think after the Packer win, we cemented your fate, we will take the game, but it will not be without a fight I am sure! GIANTS, ALL IN!

AustinSkin
11-30-2012, 12:00 PM
You are probably right. Giants are a better team, personnel-wise. The intangible is Griffin. He is determined to give everything he's got, he's intelligent, and he has no quit in him. Sometimes that makes all the difference. I am expecting a Giants victory, but won't be surprised if the Skins pull it out.

It's mathematically possible, but not likely this year. Everything will have to click for the next 5 games for that to happen. I'm as die-hard a Skins fan as they come, but I just don't think we have enough healthy personnel to end the regular season on a seven-game winning streak. The eternal optimist in me wants to see that happen, but the realist in me just wants to see the best effort possible going down the stretch. If we finish 8-8, it will be a vast improvement over last year's abysmal 5-11 record.

for the most part I respect the Skins organization. Historically.

Snyder's a PoS crybaby and Shanny never won me over. Don't care for his personality/ persona.

I hope most of your fanbase keeps things in perspective but with RG3, I'm thinking you guys will morph into Cowboys Fans Lite ...

we'll see, but we know what to expect.

I think I just puked in my mouth. Cowboys fans are delusional and clueless. Philly fans eat their young. Giants fans have swagger, and have earned the right to talk a little smack. They have a great team. Skins fans haven't seen a consistently contending team on the field since the Joe Gibbs 1 era. That was 20 years ago. We're excited about RGIII, but we are also excited about Alfred Morris, Kai Forbath and some of the other pieces we need to cement a contending team together. We don't have the team we need yet, and we probably won't until 2014, when the cap penalty expires. At last count, I think we have put at least 12 of our players on season-ending IR this year. These guys need to come back healthy, and we will need to patiently add players, under a reduced salary cap, and build some youth. In the meantime, we just have to keep building on what we have. As long as the team isn't regressing, the future looks bright.

I'm not a Shanahan fan but the guy is a great, great coach. He's the biggest reason the Skins are relevant again. More importantly, the combination of Griffin and such a great QB coach like Shanahan is scary and may well be for many years to come.

I'm really counting on the Snyder factor here to somehow eff it all up. He certainly has the ability to do so....I'm just hoping he somehow can't help himself.......

that's what I meant by Cowboys Fans lite...actually Snyder is the BIGGEST reason I hate the skins.

again, Historically the Redskins are a great franchise...Snyder's stink has diminished their overall excellence. and his tweet after Monday night's game about sums it up.

RG is the real deal and no one doubted this, until my Team can get more disciplined and stop the f'n run the East just got a hell of a lot tighter.

cause only an idiot counts out the Eagles.

Giants = Skins = Cowboys = Eagles

sad but true
