Via WTOP, this is HILARIOUS. Not quite as good as his earlier man on the street during training camp though. RGIII has the best selling NFL jersey in league history. Watch how Ryan Kerrigan pranks some unsuspecting Modell’s shoppers and tries to get them to buy his jersey instead of RGIII’s.
This is shaping up to be quite a surprising season so far with just two games in. Numbers in parentheses are last week’s rankings.
Here are my thoughts on who the best teams in the NFL are…
The Redskins defense was in the game early thanks to the D putting pressure on Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers early. The Packers made adjustments to that pressure, the Redskins did not. On offense, we had one good play followed by 3-4 bad ones. IMHO, this is part execution, part play calling. 0-9 on third down in the first half through the first two games simply is not good.
Here are my thoughts on the second half which begins with the Redskins down 24-0…
The Washington Redskins got good pressure on Packers QB Aaron Rodgers early but, the Packers adjusted, the Redskins did not, and the Redskins paid for it in the first half.
The Redskins also had poor execution on offense. They would have 1-2 good plays in a row followed by bad plays. Some of it is execution, some of it play calling.
Here are my thoughts on the first half of game 2…
The Redskins defense started poorly last game and they can ill afford to start the same way this game. Thankfully, Brandon Meriweather will be in the secondary today. Here’s what happened the last time he played.
The one thing the Redskins MUST do on defense is chnge up the D a little more than they did against the Eagles. If they play as much zone as they did last week, Aaron Rodgers will kill us.
Here’s what I am looking for today.
The first good kicker we’ve had in Washington in quite some time, Kai Forbath, may not be able to go this Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Forbath’s kickoffs have been MUCH improved this preseason and in game 1 against the Eagles.
The Washington Redskins were making contingency plans Friday to identify a possible replacement for place kicker Kai Forbath if one is needed Sunday in Green Bay.
Forbath suffered a groin injury Thursday, Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said.
Shanahan said the Redskins will make a decision Saturday after evaluating Forbath.
Forbath was to be listed as questionable on the official injury report.
