I dont know where your getting your info but last I seen NY was still talking us down saying we aren't even a contender. I love this article and agree with Rich Tandler http://www.csnwashington.com/footbal...ate-contenders
As far as any let downs, RG3 would still be a better QB with a let down than Rex Grossman would be on his best day.

I suppose let downs are always possible, but it's not really worth worrying about too much. Griffin has been playing excellent, and beyond our standard "waiting for the other shoe to drop" nature as Skins fans, there's not really any reason to feel that he's going to do badly.
Garcon coming back helped a lot, and the rest of the guys have stepped up nicely.
Time for the 12th man to show up and help RG3 out. He can't do it all. The whole team showed up big time against the Cowboys.
It's going to be cold. Outdoors. Garcon's foot will hurt on the FedEx turf. London and Trent are gimpy.
We need to rock the place. Need to get false start penalties (against the Giants), put fear into the Refs so they don't mess around with stupid calls, make it scary for the Giant WRs to run across the middle of the field.
Mara isn't going to be on the field to help his SuperBowl champs. It's a new day in the NFC East. Time for the Skins to rise up. Time for Redskins Nation to rock the house.
It's possible...I'd be a lot more confident if it weren't a MNF game. We suck on MNF especially at home.

I dont think the players buy in to the hype and drama that the media conjures up. All that stuff is for the fans. That being said I think RG3 has a maturity about him that makes him unflappable.
I believe in RG3 100%. I believed in him since i saw the game he had vs TCU last season. Since that game I knew I wanted him to be the Redskins starting QB. RG3 rises to the occasion on the brightest of stages. He did it against TCU, then against Oklahoma last season. Now the spotlight has been on these past weeks against NFC East opponents and has had arguably his two best games of his pro career against them. In my mind the table is set. Monday Night. Bright lights. Two game winning streak. Against an opponent at home that RG3 clearly believes they should have beat the first time. Sit back and enjoy. Do not worry!
This is NO game to worry about! This is "The Game" that shows the football world if the Redskins are contenders, if they can rise to the occasion, if they can bring their A-Game when absolutely needed. This is "The Game" that will either give this team the confidence they need to make that playoff run, or show them and the football world that we are a year away from being contenders, like we were suppose to be!
This team has played all year without some of their Pro Bowl players, without their best starters that makes a huge difference, this team has been disrespected by the media, other teams and even it's own fans, and this team is still fighting for the NFC East Championship and a playoff spot. Not too bad at all for a team that played with many back ups all year and wasn't suppose to even have a winning record.
I'm sure not afraid of RG3 falling to pieces, this kid will be just fine even if he did have a bad game. I'm excited we are even talking playoffs and winning a division in December. All I got to say is Gooo Redskins! Let's beat their ass in front of America, just like you did Dallas last week.

I worry that a close game will be put into the hands of the refs..
and the NFL is just DYING for a Manning vs Manning superbowl..
i need a new sig
If we are ever going to be a great team you are going to have to deal with the media hype. Look at the Giants they were praised for most of the beginning of the season and then were atrocious for two weeks before their bye and were tore up in the media.Then they came out and killed green bay. I understand you wanting RG3's hype to go under the radar but in this day and age if you want to win championships you're going to have to deal with the week to week hype and hate.
I don't like MNF, it brings back mostly bad memories. Anyways, since we started breaking a negative record vs the pokes we should carry on this momentum, stay focused and not repeating the huge mistake we made during the first game. I think a good old evaluation speech in the locker room might do that.

Only dead fishes follow the stream. "Only when the last tree has died, the last river has been poisoned, and the last fish has been caught, we will realize that we can't eat money."
Some of you are completely hilarious. "Bad memories" "I"m scared" "I'm worried."
By your same logic, RG3 automatically is going to hoist a Super Bowl trophy because the Redskins already have 3, and well history repeats itself so that means he HAS to win 3 on his own. We suck on Monday Night Football - do you think this has any hold? Was this one of those things where you took a pile of **** and tossed it at a wall and witnessed it stick? Sure - RECENT history might say differently in terms of record, but are you ****ing kidding me?
Go tell RG3 that he sucks on MNF after he just completed an insane performance on a BIGGER STAGE against our BIGGEST RIVAL. Go tell the young guys that they suck and don't have a chance, I mean what some of you are saying is just positive reinforcement how little valued our actual opinions are probably due to pulling bull**** like this. Our roster gets to go out on game day and give it all and we actually have a chance to pull within a game with 4 games left after that and you're going to be cry babies about it? Look I lived and died with the Redskin too, I been through this ****. But this sounds like open mic confessionals up in here and the topic being sports depression.
Unless you happen to be naked and run on the field and give Eli Manning a hug, you have little to NO effect on this game. Zero. So stop worrying, drink what you're gonna drink, eat what you're gonna eat, pray to the God you pray for, and ENJOY THE FACT THAT WE HAVE SOMETHING TO PLAY FOR IN DECEMBER FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YEARS.
And for the record, in order for home field to be an ADVANTAGE - YOU NEED TO HAIL. You need to make the Giants feel unwelcome. And you need to make sure the Giants FANS feel like they're getting their ass beat vocally. If you don't do these things, we deserve to lose as fans. You can't give up on your team.
Where's the fan card police, because I think we need to start checking...

We got this.
To answer the Op's question, you probably aren't the only one worried but with RG3 as our QB, your worry (and that of others) is misplaced. He is a transcendent player in the mold of the best who have ever played in the NFL. A player who can take an entire team on his back and lead them to victory. Even so, we won't win every game but going forward, we will win more than we will lose. The old Redskins are dead, Long Live the Redskins!
