    Let's not try to rationalize the game by criticizing RGIII. His numbers might not have been pretty, but he was incredibly effective. He had NY off guard all night. If he played for us, we'd all be crowning him as the next legend.

    You could be right, but I'm not so sure about that. RGIII is forcing defenses to think, rather than react instinctively. Even worse, it forces defenses to gamble. Sometimes you're right, and sometimes you get torched. I would hate to be a defensive coordinator game-planning against this offense.

    It's like this teams gets retarted when we play division rivals....Pass was working to perfection the first half and you basically stop throwing lol. Oh man this team....

    No I wouldn't cause I know in the playoffs you have tyo go through your progressions and make tough difficult throws...consistently. I mean they are kinda of right the hype with this kid is "SICKENING". It's a team sport and he is always mentioned before their team. I think that will ware thin in the locker room. Anyway Eli played incredible last night and some of the throws he made wow. I haven't seen RG3 make those kinda of throws.

    Agreed. It wasn't a statistical night for him but he managed to not be responsible for any turnovers and did engineer that TD in the 2nd half that put his team on the top. Reminded me of the SF game last year in the NFC championship that was mostly about ball security.

    Yes but you also have to account for that fact that Bob is precise with the football, can throw short, deep, and intermediate passes accurately. He's intelligent enough to understand running Qbs don't have a long lifespan in the NFL.

    If you want to be really cruel compare RG3s to Eli's rookie numbers. Don't get me wrong, I love Eli and ESPNs lovefest for RG3 is over the top but he deserves more credit than being called a "fad".

    Yeah, why is Gillbride so stubborn and keeps running with Bradshaw, when Eli was throwing accurate? What happened to the no huddle that Eli does well with?
    Getting back to topic at hand, RG111's game last night was nothing near spectacular, yet the win was blown way out of proportion. Its not like he had an amazing 4th quarter comeback with 3 touchdowns. It was simply a sub par game that was only won simply from a fluke play and a few lucky calls that went their way.
    Gotta be in it to win it

    therein lies the problem.....for him , he had a relatively off night...and still beat us anyway.
