For 2 weeks in a row, we've had fans coming on here telling us how good their QBs passing stats are. Alex Smith was the top rated QBR QB, RG3 completes 70% of his passes, whoopdee doo! If our QB just threw 5-7 yd screens & dumpoffs the vast majority of the game, he'd complete 80% of his passes. Problem is , Eli can make any type of throw that only the elite QBs can make. Smith has proven he can't, RG3 is still 6 games into his NFL career, so I can't make that judgement on him yet.
All week, the only player these Skins fans have been harping is about RG3, not any other single player on their team. That alone tells me they have no one else on their team they feel is worth talking about. Hope all the smack talkers come back after the game to eat their crow. But like most 9er fans, I doubt it.
Where you at DLT?
Typical nerve wracking NFC east game. I was a nervous wreck. I feel we were lucky to be in a position to win at the end because of all the mistakes we made (Eli still can't believe he threw that second pick), plus some questionable play calling on our part. But, you create your own luck when you bird dog the ball and cause turnovers. Big difference in this game was veteran savvy, and never giving up on a play.
You just got BLACK= burned
I never run. I actually missed the end because I had to pick my gf up from work. I left right after we got that last pick on Eli. I saw on my phone that we had to settle for 3. I followed it on gamecast until we got the ball back on that TD drive. However, I saw those 3 straight incompleteions and I had to cut it off on 4th & 10. I only looked one more time.
It seemed like it was a long time later but there was still like 1min & change left on the clock for some reason and we had the ball at the 44. It looked weird though so I thought it was probably false and the game was over. Either way I couldnt bear to keep track so I said Ill check it when I get home. I got home and thats when I saw it. Man that was a great game with a bunch of big plays and just misses by both sides.
Keep in mind that I didnt come to talk trash. I said you guys should be favorite but I thought we could win if we had a healthy Garcon & Shanny was aggressive. Well Shanny was aggressive like he always is on the road. Garcon was obviously out. Then to top it of we lose by far our next biggest threat in Davis.
I think you guys proved that you are still the class of the whole league much less the Division but we also proved that we will not be the same ole Skins that we have been. RG3 will have to be dealt with. It sucks that for like a million straight years we had a good D but some of the worst Offense in the league. Now we finally get a good O and our D sucks. You guys are a complete team and thats where we have to get at. Good luck but keep an eye in your rear view mirror. We just might sneak up again later in the year
Another Great WIN for OUR GIANTS !
