Week 13: Giants 31, Redskins 7: Knee Jerk Reactions

Football's regular season is heading down the home stretch! Before I let rationality cloud my judgment, here are my knee-jerk reactions from the twelfth game of the season:

The Skins looked like they knew they were walking to their own funeral. I think we can be mercifully mathematically eliminated next week.

Remember This? That is What Today Felt Like

  •  Fumbles
  • My highlight of the day was Drew Stanton doing the Dougie in the Detroit-Chicago game.
  • The Giants had 140 yards rushing in the 1st half.
  • We missed you Fat Albert.
  • I was actually dissapointed the Giants didn't hit 200 yards rushing for the game.
  • I was laughing at the Redskin ineptitude, just like last year.
  • Corey Webster owns Santana Moss. Webster was an elite CB 2 years ago when he completely took Tana out of the game, had injuries last year, but today looked like that elite player (not sure about the rest of his season). That INT at the end of the game was well-deserved.
  • Rocky McIntosh looked hurt and played an abysmal game.
  • Devin Thomas blocking a punt, making a special teams tackle, and downing a ball at the 5 was kicking us in the balls when we were down. 
  • Just inexplicable that Galloway held a starting job for so long while we had to get rid of Thomas.
  • The, "Eli" commercial right after his endzone interception was perfect.
  • At least we didn't furiously celebrate our TD.
  • McNabb was throwing it all over the yard in a bad way. There was pressure, but he was more erratic than usual it seemed.
  • I want to like Jammal Brown, but he was particularly awful today.
  • We really do need to draft a center.
  • D-line should be another focus in the offseason.
  • I am very curious as to whether Shanahan will play some more young guys and backups down the stretch to see what we have. Sexy Rexy, Terrance Austin, Kevin Barnes, Brandon Banks on offense, etc.
  • Shanahan was 6th place in a Sports Illustrated poll of NFL players on 'Coach You'd Most Like to Play For.' He seems like a pain in the ass, so I'm surprised, you?
  • Does Brandon Banks have a shot at the Pro Bowl? Given that Dez Bryant and Devin Hester only really return punts, his only competition should be Stefan Logan and Danny Amendola
  • You have no idea how happy the thought of Brandon Banks in the Pro Bowl just made me.
