*rewind to before this game and the six-point, three-turnover defensive showing*
I think that what Shanahan did was look around the league on his year off and see that, "Hey, that 3-4 looks pretty damn good. The linebackers have to be smaller and quicker like the guys in the ZBS, so maybe there's something that I can use to be a better defensive personnel evaluator."
I don't think that he actually thought through the entire coaching staff, and like LL (I think it was LL, at least he posted it here) said, if you don't let your coordinators pick their staff, then what kind of chemistry and accountability do you expect?
*And back to 8:44 PM EST*
This game. Man, this game. This is the team that we need to see to really make a run. The offense needed help, and they got it. Playmakers needed to make plays, and Moss made one of the best of his illustrious career.
I couldn't be happier with the TEAM today. And RGIII is going to be grounds for a divorce, I swear.

Here's to you, bubba! You will be missed.
I'm very happy about this game.
It's fun to finally watch a team that can throw long touchdown passes. It's fun to see our defense hold a team (even a team which was clearly struggling) to 6 points. It's fun to be on this side of a 25-point game in the division. I'd love to see the last time we won a divisional game by that much...my guess is that it was the home Cowboy game in 2005 (35-7).
Encouraging win...it will be multiplied if we win on Thanksgiving and really start to gel!
"Washington strolled to the NFC championship, outscoring their two playoff opponents by a combined total of 48 points. Their domination was more than impressive, it was historic. The 1991 Redskins boasted the largest average margin of victory among all Super Bowl champions."

These stats are just disgusting! See below
In two NFC East games, #RG3 is 34-for-43 for 458 yards, 6 TDs and one INT. Also rushed for 173 yards. #Redskins
Just wanted to highlight the play today of a few unsung Redskins like Young at fullback #36 and Williams #71 on the offensive line. Merriweather looked good too of course before he went down. Its a lot more fun for the starters when at the end of the 4th quarter they can relax on the sidelines and enjoy a win for a change. They have to keep the momentum going with a Dallas win. We should be able to beat Philly in Philly before Christmas too.

And "two plays"? I'm not even talking about third down. I'm talking about FOURTH down.
You have a chance to put a team down by three TDs with a chip shot FG. You take the points and retain all the momentum.
And how successful have we been of late with these short yardage plays? Yeah, not very.
You don't risk it. Three TDs is a big-time lead. You don't chance giving the other team the momentum that comes with a big stop like that. Luckily for us, the Eagles' momentum reserves were totally depleted, so it didn't matter.
But it was a TERRIBLE, stupid and needlessly reckless decision to do that.
Great write up TK!
Murph, that pic of Santana reaching for money is one of your best. I might have to print that one out for the mancave!
It must be great to be watching RG3 from the sidelines!
Thank you, Mr. Murphy...you have once again made my day, as I got to make your pic of RGIII carrying our beautiful flag my phone wallpaper.
I apologize if its already posted, but I would like to find a recording or replay of the game somewhere via the web. Does anyone have a good source? (I was out of town and missed the game except for radio. I wanna see those plays!)
