    Reptile Dysfuntion had a fumble and it was magical according to Gruden. I wanted to mute the TV so bad because they kept gushing over Reptile dysfuntion.


    I really wish the Giants went for it on 4th down. Whats there to lose at that point? They were running all over us.

      Wow - talk about revisionist history. By his prime Im assuming you mean Atlanta where he was an incredibly innacurate passer. All you would hear is that if he could improve on his passing game how unstoppable he COULD be. He's always had a cannon but there was never a time in Atalnta where he could make every throw. Never.

        ESPN's lovefest is definitely over the top but the accolades that RG3 gets are mostly warranted.

        His game is a lot different than Vick's in his prime. Frankly, the Giant's D looked confused. When they made adjustments to stop RG3 Alfred Morris would run wild. When they committed to Alfred Morris RG3 would go outside for a big gain. When they decided to shoot the gaps against the run RG would pass over the top. I have to admit it's an exciting offense to watch that's changing the NFL.

          I've been thinking about why RGIII is difficult to defend, and here are the top three reasons IMO

          1. The Redskins run their offense from multiple formations. On a short week defenses need to work on multiple looks vs. a standard formation. That's a lot more film study and practice dedicated to multiple sets. And you're not quite sure what you are going to see on game day.
          2. With Alfred Morris, their running game is an every down threat. RGIII is very good at selling the play action fake, and he has stopped many DEs and safeties in their tracks. The problem for defensive players is that the can't react instinctively, they are forced to think. With the speed of this game, a split second hesitation can give up a huge play. RGIII has the football intelligence to spot a breakdown and exploit it.
          3. Finally, RGIII is just plain fast. You can watch all the film you want, but you can't teach yourself to run faster.

The guy put up 13-21 and 163 yards with 1 touchdown. To me that's not even worthy of an article, yet it's 7:00 in the morning and I've come across 3 articles already just on my phone, and I haven't even picked up the paper yet. The lovefest this guy received last night on ESPN was sickening, I felt like throwing my remote through the television. They got lucky on a few plays that went their way. I get the argument that he did just enough to get his team a victory, but I'm not buying into this RG111 hype. I get that the Redskins haven't had anything worth talking about for the last decade, but please media, let it go, there is far more talented rookie QB's to talk about every freaking day. Don't mind me, just venting.
            I wouldn't call his game mediocre. He didn't turn the ball over and made some plays. I would agree that he had a game that was below the standards that he has set.

              Oh is that why Vick's passing numbers have been so awesome over the years :P

                  On a technicality he did fumble but since his own team recovered for a td, it's not called a turnover

                    I thought that we played very well against him -- they scored 17 points. Problem was that we scored only 16. Not airing the ball out more to take advantage of the skins greatest weekness was a mind boggling decision.

                      Has this guy ever had a 3 or 4 td game? Or a 400 yd passing game? I haven't been paying close attention to his stats, but can someone answer that? What I recall is mostly low scoring games....

                        Yeah he destroyed philly and the cowgirls.

                        He was held in check by our secondary but the linebackers outside of Chase got completely destroyed. We should've kept a safety in the box the entire game and dare him to throw downfield. Or even have a spy on him at all times.

                          However, it was always obvious that Mike Vick had the potential to be a great passer. I think he was never coached properly and developed while he was in Atlanta. Andy Reid did a good job with Mike Vick but then didnít address the offensive line issues and Mike Vick has been getting killed out there.

                            you are so wrong that it shows a bias and kills your whole argument. You talk like you have watched him alot but its clear you havent. He's actually coming off of back to back 4td games. He hasnt thrown for 400 but he's thrown for like 350 and over 300 a few times. Weve also been one of the highest scoring teams in the league all year and thats with us playing all of it without Garcon who is our only top notch WR and we havent had Davis since the 1st time we played you

You guys should be happy you have a QB finally that you can get hyped about, but the media is over blowing that game last night, having him sit on the podium for a post game interview like he's the hero that saved the game. Eli at times looked a hell of a lot better than Griffin IMHO if you ask me, or anyone else for that matter.
                              you said rookie QB's as in more than one. Even if its just Luck, he still hasnt been better. If you even go to the Colts board they spend half the time talking about all the dumb decisions & inaccurate throws he makes. Then you talk about Eli like he's playing the same defense. He should light up our D. If RG3 played against our D he would go off also. Its not the same thing. Besides, one guy is a rookie

                                This is just a fad, they run a very simple yet different offense. Bob can make plays with his feet yes, hes fast as heck, but he will get beat up over time, people will figure out this scheme and he will nothing more than a normal qb. I give them credit for what they did, our coaches are dumb so that certaintly helps but as a qb hes hasnt show me much, they set him up for simple things and he executes, time will tell but im not worried
