Yeah, once they realized that Webb couldn't throw a pass within the same ZIP code as his receivers, they looked better. Funny that, huh?

Did you see RG3 limping on the Skins last possession? The man is out there in pain and can't run while the coach is just looking at him and putting him in a position to fail.

I appreciate his heart, but sit RG3 right now.

Exactly, he is in no position to help the team and the stupid coach is just standing on the sidelines watching him play in pain. I never in my life seen a coach so stupid when it comes to his star player.

For a minute it looked like the Packers defense would have two problems,

1. Trying to stop Webb

2. Trying to stop Adrian Peterson

You guys forget: Mike Shanahan put Terrel Davis in against the Packers in Super Bowl XXXII. Davis had a migraine and couldn't even see. He comes in to sell the run and the broncos score a touchdown in a game they won by only a touchdown.

No matter anymore anyway, looks like Griffin is down now.

Seems to me that in big time games you need your big time players to push their limits to the greatest extent possible. I recall Ladanian Tomlinson and Jay Cutler facing a lot of criticism
(fair or not) for sitting on the sidelines when their teams needed them. These guys are going to get roasted no matter what they do. Play and you are being reckless. Don't play and you are weak. There is no satisfying sports fans.

Turning point of the game for the Skins

When the Skins was up 14-0, Seattle had a 2nd and 14 deep in their own territory and Lynch was able to break through for a big gain which led to the FG and the rest of seattle points.

I cannot believe they left him in the game, he should have come out at halftime, seeing him on the ground, unable to get up, unbelievable. Cousins should have been in this game.
