Is The Season Over For The Washington Redskins? (Video)

Like these two or not, this was a good debate on ESPN’s First Take.

Has Pierre Garcon Given Up on RGIII This Season?

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon has come out and said that he believes RGIII isn’t 100% healthy. But, is that belief spilling over onto the football field? UKRedskin at Hogs Haven has an interesting breakdown of the Lions interception of Redskins QB Robert Griffin III. I initially thought it was Griffin’s fault from the stands myself but, who’s fault was it on the play really? Click the link above to find out. Excellent analysis. Well done.

Who’s A Worse 0-3 Team Than The Redskins? (Video)

On offense, the Redskins have to stop shooting themselves in the foot. As mentioned in the previous posts on this blog, they have 1-2 good plays on a drive followed by mistakes and/or poor execution. I’d like to see more Alfred Morris against the Lions and I’m also looking to see how RGIII performs here in game 3.

That said, here are my 1st half thoughts…
