10 reasons why I will be rooting for the Washington Redskins this postseason.
1) RGIII is great for the game of football.
2) RGIII has humility and respect for himself, his opponents, and the game.
3) The Redskins make the NFC East tougher, and force the Giants to get better.
4) Maybe a successful Redskins teams forces the Giants to draft a LBer in Round 1 for the first time in 29 years.
5) Victor Cruz is rooting for the Redskins this postseason.
6) Of the Giants 3 opponents in the NFC East, I dislike the Skins the least.
7) In the NFC, I have no interest in rooting for Harbaugh, Rodgers or Carroll. MIN and ATL are boring.
8) In the AFC, I won't root for the Cheater. I never root for BAL (unless they play vs the Cheater). I still do not believe Peyton should have come back. IND, HOU and CIN are boring.
9) Redskins fans have paid plenty for their owner's hopelessness. We had a decade of darkness in the '70's. They had two decades.
10) Hey, they beat the Boys last week, it's the least we can do.
Goodbye Redskins ...
Griffin is hurt again - I'm not rejoying in any way, let's be clear.
Comparing him to Michael Vick may not be the smartest thing to do, but still ... is he already in the cycle injury - rush back too early - major injury ?
He's only missed 1 full game but Cousin had to take 109 snaps - that's 10% of the offense total (postseason included).
I hate the Skins as much as the Eagles and the Cowgirls.
I hope they lose. Plus, I like Seattle's D.
Agree on all but two items
I love the Cheater. Best football mind maybe ever and he got us 2 rings
No problems with payton.
Weird how I feel exactly the same way on everything else you said.
@capt george I liked Bill too until I heard via Francesa what happened to Marshall Faulk and the Rams in Supe 36. Bill is now cursed. He made a deal w the devil and Supe 42 and 46 are proof of that. Peyton made a decision which he will live with. I felt it was reckless. Just my opinion.
@ultimatenyg @TC4EVA I get what you're saying, and I respect your opinion, but you're not a physician. We've all got one life to live. He's doing what he loves. But if you are going to take that stance, you should probably take it in regards to the entire league. The fact is that every player that puts on a uniform in the NFL is putting the rest of his life at risk. Here's a clip from a recent episode of HBO's Real Sports that I'd encourage you to watch. The clip is only about 2 minutes long, but if you can get your hands on the whole episode, I would. It's eye opening. And keep in mind when you watch it that they're talking about high school and college students, not even pros:
@TC4EVA @i'm no judging, just my opinion, so I don't root for him. It's my opinion that the health risks were enough that a man who has had a lengthy HOF career should not come back and put the rest of his life at risk. Those are my values. He choose differently. It doesn't mean I have to support it. In fact, the larger NFL health issues have eroded and undermined all of our support for this game.. In my opinion.
