Absolutely, RiC! For a team with "so many holes" at the beginning of the season. They played hard this year and won the division. Nothing to hang our heads about.

Richard Sherman should be kneecapped.

So be it.

Griffin will have six months to rehab the knee.

Allen and Shanahan will draft some defense.

Orakpo will return.

Only going to get better.

All true... but... everyone in America knew that Griffin was in trouble after the first half. With a weapon in reserve like Cousins, you have to make a switch at some point in the 3rd quarter. I just don't get it. Griffin was obviously very impaired. Why do you continue to risk him? He was not capable of planting for passes... he was not capable of planting to cut. What was he thinking????

Go Falcons.

We had a great run. We knew this was not our season.

Who knows, maybe this is the best outcome to have RG healthy and not permanently lost


Griffin seems to be walking normally. Who knows...maybe just plain rest for a few weeks?

The D needed help from the O... they didn't get it.

Completely agree. Should have been Cousins in the second half. Especially after Griffin limped out that 8-yard gain to the left. Painfully obvious.

Wilson needs Adderall... maybe he should ask a team mate.

Bradshaw... ever the buffoon... shouldn't an analyst know something about football?

I turned that thing off. Even if the Redskins had won I wouldn't want to watch the FOX football guys...Bradshaw has always been a clown as a commentator. Jimmy Brylcream as well.

Deion Sanders on NFL Netwrok is taking up for Trent Williams in an argument with Irvin. Richard Sherman is a punk.

No it isn't .... apparently there is only one other person with two brain cells left.

This loss lays squarely on the idiotic decision to continue sending out a severely hampered RG3, when it was obvious to anyone with a half a brain he was not able to play and be effective ... but more importantly, risking further injury to RG3 like this was totally inexcusable.

At the half, Cousins could have, and SHOULD HAVE come in and run this offense, and the Redskins would have won this game. The defense just got wore out in the 2nd half ... then, when RG3 couldn't even turn to get the bad snap, the game was over. The disaster of having to put Cousins in there, cold, and down by 10 with 6 minutes was created by not making that move after the 2nd QT.

If I owned the team, I would have been in the locker room at the half, and told those nitwits that if they put my franchise in jeopardy by playing RG3 in the second half ... they'd be fired regardless of the outcome of the game, win or loose.

No excuse for this ... none ... no debate, no argument, no room for what ifs .... it was gross malfeasance to continue playing him, and if you disagree, you're crazy. It's not even close.

Welp.
I cannot see how that does not require surgery... MCL must be a mess... Watching Coach right now... coach, you were thinking with your heart... not your brain... I think he has some regrets...
