Redskins Lead 20-17 After Three

How about Chris Horton? Sprinted over in the zone D, read the route and jumped on that pass.

Huge play, especially with two of the top corners on the sidelines with injuries (Springs is cramping). Romo went right after Leigh Torrence on the play and Horton read it.

Again, Blache is rotating like crazy on the D Line.

And the Skins' offense without a turnover all season. That's pretty amazing way to start the season.

Man I am losing sweating bullets i am so nervous

Six points is not enough - especially if the corners can't play.

Posted by: kjhealey | September 28, 2008 6:49 PM | Report abuse

AGH. We'd better not lose by 1 point!

Need some good defense here, even though they are probably a wee bit tired!

wow 2 horrible calls on Rabach... those refs haven't called poop on Dallas at all, and we keep getting this stupid phantom calls. i smell conspiracy

Posted by: notthecrochunter | September 28, 2008 6:30 PM | Report abuse
I couldn't see the first play that was called for holding, but on being over the line of scrimmage, Rabach locked up on a rusher, pushed him downfield 3 yds, and then lost contact just before JC threw the pass.

I am so used to things not going our way that I still do not fully believe. And sure it's a one TD game but still I feel like I haven't seen the Skins play this way with fairly solid consistency in such a long time.
Come on Defense!
I want to believe!

Moss should of had that one. Need more than FG

Needed a TD there. The defense is hurting.

Posted by: scampbell1975 | September 28, 2008 6:50 PM | Report abuse

We will need one more score, this is NOT enough; 3 FGs today....

JC was so horrible vs Giants even when he had time...

He looks like a different guy out there today...

It's going to come down to the offense because with our defense hurting, I think the Cowboys are bound to score on us although I hope I'm wrong.

This drive - classic Gibbs 1.0 - very nice.

Thank you Suisham.

Very Gibbs like, but hey, you have to make this a two score game and thus Zorn is making the correct call here.
Ok Suisham what will you do?

When Jim Zorn was hired as the OC, I was ecstatic. I loved the guy here in Seattle and was very happy for him when he got a chance to move up the ranks. I readily admit I was very doubtful about him being selected as the head coach as, effectively, the last man standing. That said, I am becoming a believer.

Posted by: PDiddy | September 28, 2008 7:42 PM | Report abuse

Awesome game, key contributions from all aspects and positions.

The thing about this Skins team is they have confidence and can close teams out, vs. prior Skins teams of recent years where it felt like they were holding on and hoping not to lose.

I give Zorn a ton of credit for the personality infusion of the team.

Oh, and I think a few days ago I predicted Dallas 31, Redskins 14....glad I was wrong.

Hail!
