    Was the redskins beating us twice in 2011 a blessing in disguise?

    Think about it... if we had swept them in 2011 instead of being swept as did happen, the redskins would have been 3-13 instead of 5-11. Then they wouldn't have to cough up 2 first rounders to acquire RG3.

    Victor Cruz was a major blessing in disguise, that's for sure.

    It really doesn't matter.

    agreed.

    Our boys got the Lombardi, case closed.

    I'm just happy the Giants won't have to face Rex Grossman twice next season.

    However, they will have to face RG3 the rest of his career, I think he will haunt us like Cunningham and McNabb.

    solve RG3 and they might "solve" Vick.

    what I mean is, Defensive scheme and game-planning count for much.

    Obviously, a Spy is a beginning. Pressure with results another...

    The only possible blessing I can see is that it helped create the "win or die" scenario that the team responded to at the end of the season. If we had beaten the Skins and had a little safety net at the end, we might have relaxed and faltered.

    That said, I would never prefer to lose. And that goes to the sextillion for the NFCE.

    I can't see any positives from a QB with RG3's talents going to a division rival that already beat us twice last year with a mediocre squad.

    In the tough times we find out who we are.

    While this is true, I think the point the OP was trying to make is that the Redskins would have traded up for RGIII no matter what. In this case, at least his supporting cast could be limited because they had to give up so much to get him.
