    RG3 and their head coach will be whining again after Thursday.
    RG3 throws great 2 yard passes

    Great work.

    That's actually a little discouraging, though. I'd heard about that game and just thought he was way off. But only a few of those were bad throws... The vast majority were just horrible drops. The very first one was the easiest TD ever that hit the guy right in the hands.

    We can find a way. It's called a running game. Keep RG3 on the sidelines.

    Well seeing as how the Cowboys have one of the worst ranked rushing offenses and the Redskins have a top ranked rushing defense this may be a problem,,, the Skins high rushing D ranking is partially due to their horrible secondary and teams opting to pass but the matchup still looks bad for the Cowboys run game.

    Another way to is hit the guy (legally), again and again. He won't be so frisky after he's been pounded into the turf a few times.

    I counted 12 plays where the receivers were at fault due to poor routes or dropped passes, some for touchdowns...also one play was an obvious PI in the endzone that wasn't called. Considering how bad that WR was that day, the PI was unnecessary since he'd likely would've dropped it anyway.

    If anything, I think that game and the Panthers game showed RG3 with the least amount of composure, he may a couple of bad throws against both teams as the game went on his teammates persisted in letting him down.

    I think Dallas has a better chance by scoring on their first couple of drives, and watching Kyle Shanahan's play calling go into the gutter. This offense is it's most ineffective when they abandon the run game, call only passing plays with a 5 step drop(exposing our truly poor pass protection) and RG3 is forced to rely on below average receivers to get open. That scenario has resulted in our offenses's two worst games this year.

    Here's an interesting fact. It should be filed under Facts I Never Would Have Guessed in a Million Years.

    Brandon Weedon has more passing yards than RG3, and only one fewer passing touchdown. The stats where Weedon suffers relative to RG3 are completion percentage and interceptions.

    I have been amazed at watching RGIII evade some of these rushers, especially if he gets outside the pocket. This was a 4th down against the giants.
