    IRVING — Attacking a rookie quarterback is usually a sound strategy. After all, inexperienced players are usually prone to make mistakes when they are placed under pressure. But Washington’s Robert Griffin III may be the exception.

    Among starting quarterbacks who have played a majority of their team’s games, Griffin III has posted a 125.0 passer rating when blitzed, the second-highest mark in the NFL after Week 10. He’s completed 28 of 47 pass attempts for 426 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions while being sacked five times in those situations.

    Well, then. We're in luck this week. Rob likes to rush three and put 8 in coverage against rookie quarterbacks.

    Rushing 3 would be even bigger failure.

    Yup, and two of the three are run stuffers. We'd be better off going by the "5 Mississippi" route, seeing as how these QB's are getting 7+ seconds to survey the field on many occasions.

    Let's just forfeit. No way we are winning this one. Damned if we rush, damned if we don't. :D

    I'm just glad I don't have to defend that guy. Maybe they can spot some situations to blitz that have higher yields. I hope we don't get off to a slow start and can find some way to cut down the number of their offensive series. And as always turnovers.

    It's strange.

    The Cowboys are sitting here at 5-5 with a legitimate chance at taking the lead in the NFC East by Sunday evening. The Redskins are coming in at 4-6, having dropped four of their past six. Their defense has been horrible, and they're starting a rookie quarterback, who's probably their best player right now.

    Yet, I have this sinking feeling the Cowboys are about to get curb stomped on Thanksgiving.

    RG3 is the real deal however Rob Ryan will have a nice game plan in place.

    I hope he knows there is a game Thursday and isn't still smoking cigars because he beat the Browns. ;)

    I sure hope the Cowboys players have more confidence going into this game than their fans. You would think the Redskins were undefeated from reading this forum.

    No it's just that I have 20/20 vision and saw how RG3 played against the

    Giants
    Eagles
    Saints
    Vikings

    And I know how dangerous he can be

    I am sure the players know that too. Besides, his team is 4-6. They have been beaten, ya know.

    But I seen our defense against QB's who are not as good as RG3 so why wouldn't I be concerned?
