All I can think is, they beat the Steelers for their only win this season.

Near the end of 3Q, I suddenly thought:

We should draft a QB with our first or second pick next year.  I wanted EJ sooooo bad.  But look what a little competition has done for Christian Ponder.

You cannot do anything without a QB.  If you have two, so be it.  But zero is not an option.

Let EJ and the new guy fight like hell.  EJ had no real competition this year.

Are you talking about Christian Ponder performing well against the 30th-ranked defense?

Ponder has no feel in the pocket. He takes off almost immediately every time.

No idea why they don't go with cassel.

Ponder never stays in the pocket, he can't stay put and deliver the ball, he reminds me of Jake Plummer.

Why would the Refs call that a TD...That was a good 1/2yard away from the Pylon.

IMO, cassel is so much better than ponder and freeman, it's not even close.

That's kind of like saying that Thad Lewis is better than Matt Flynn and Jeff Tuel, but OK. B-)

No.  I'm talking about Ponder now, vs. Ponder a few weeks ago.  Or last year.

Tight spiral.  Setting his feet to throw.  Throwing precisely when his back foot hits on his drop (Thanks, Mayock).  Making the right reads.

How about their coach giving the Redskins two timeouts with under a minute to go.  Brilliant!

The Viking coach reminds me of Dick Jauron.  Every time they show him he is stone faced and emotionless.

So was Tom Landy, Bill Walsh, and Chuck Noll.  Dennis Green yelled a lot.  Herm Edwards is still yelling.  Do you really think showing emotion on the sideline means anything?  Preparation. Player devlopment. Scheme. Drafting.  Those are the things that matter.  Not getting into an officials face.

Seemed to work.

Coach Frazier did get his team to playoffs last year.  And he was nominated for a Grammy for his appearance in the Super Bowl Shuffle and a safety on the 85 Bears defense.

Somewhat, but neither team is very good and one has AP.

Until Washington can protect Bob Griffin they will continue to be a bad football team. Griffin is going to get killed behind that line

RGIII looked like he was starting to make plays again last night, even under constant duress. They are losing because of defense. That being said, they will be even worse if RGIII goes down again and I was worried that was going to happen a few times last night.

He was a favorite to replace Jauron at one time.  Not sure which would have been worse - him or Gailey.
