    can't wait to see RG3 in action again and let's see if all the hype around chip kelly is justified

    well this season hasnt been the best of starts for the Redskins has it?!
    our defense is about as effective as Muhammed Hafeez's batting outside of Asia
    and RGIII is clearly rusty

    does the fact that no team starting 0-2 has EVER made the playoffs worry you? I think if they lose their next few games they should consider resting RG3

    no not really - they were 3-6 last year and won the division
    i think it would be pointless to bench RGIII now, he needs game time to get back into form, sitting on the bench wont help him(unless its proved he isnt 100% fit)

    what worries me is that awful D - have never been a fan of Jim Haslett's defense with the Redskins, would prefer he left and they went back to a 4-3 Defense

    That is not true at all. The Giants started 0-2 in 2007 and went on to win the Super Bowl.

    lol he must have had a brainfart moment and thought he was playing basketball. the QB class this year was supposed to be crap....
    whats happened to Sanchez? thank god the redskins didnt draft sanchez after rumours came out we were thinking of trading up for him when he came out a few yrs back

    Minnesota v Pittsburgh was played in Wembley last night, thats about a 30min drive from where I am but I didnt go because Id rather stay home and watch a free live stream of the redskins : D

    lol, don't forget even sanchez in his rookie year took us to the AFC championship game and everyone thought he had a lot of potential. I think Sanchez got a lot of unfair criticism the last few years as he had poor O-lines and no receivers.

    I was suprised to see the turnout for the game in Wembley, is the NFL getting big over there?

    havent followed Sanchez's career but seems like he has yet to have that break out year and take the next step

    The NFL has been getting bigger here for quite a few years, another game next month here too, think its Jags v the niners - yep wont be going to that one either lol although I'm tempted to look into it as one of my brothers supports the 49ers

    Gronkowski out with a torn acl/mcl. Huge blow for the patriots...they looked average without him in the beginning of the season.

    Redskins should really consider resting RG3 now.

    Patriots without Gronk will be okay for regular season, it'll be a problem in playoffs, especially if they don't get a bye week.

    wild finish to the season. Orton filling in for romo pulls a romo with a chance to win it.

    Chargers pull through against the cheifs (who were resting everyone)

    redskins fire coach shanahan
    a season which started with so much promise fizzled out terribly
    kind of sad to see him go, I think the problem was more the defense, but a fresh start is what is needed after all the drama that went on through the season but a feeling of deja vu with the need to rebuild yet again
    need a new owner too but that is just not going to happen

    6 coaching spots are currently open. I think the best job up right not is Detroit. They have a QB and the best WR in the league. Their defensive line is stellar.

    yup, hes gone

    Woody johnson says rex is safe and that "he couldn't be prouder of the team"

    how the hell can he say that when we didnt even make the playoffs? so if we make the playoffs or don't make it he is equally proud? what an idiot he is.

    I'm surprised Jerry kept Garrett in Dallas. jets keeping Rex comes as no surprise. The team did as well as one would expect from this roster.

    49ers have a great recipe for success...good running game and defense. The outcome may depend on how good rodgers is. He didn't look great last week for the most part so we'll see how he does today.

    So Peyton Manning wins the superstar battle to reach Super Bowl which coincidentally could also be the last battle between him and Brady.

    What a start to the off season for the jets. We have signed Revis, cromartie and skine. Also have gotten Brandon Marshall and Ryan Fitzpatrick via trades. The draft can make this a great offseason for us

    I have no idea what's going on in Philly. The McCoy trade ended up being ok since they got kiko and demarco. But I don't get the foles trade.
