I've got one eye on it - only because it's real football. Plax and Antwaan Randle El on the same field - and Michaels and Madden, too.

DAMN - the Redskins can't run the ball at all, can they?!

The 'skins are getting manhandled, talk about a one sided game.

Agreed - nowhere near as close as the score is.

It was a nice block, but I still love the hit Jacobs put on Landry. That was just fantastic!

Giants Stadium has "Grassy Turf" which is a mix of both real grass and synthetic.

I just notice all the black rubber fiber bouncing up when they tackle people.

Univ. of Wash. has that stuff, it is actually pretty good.

Eli looked good on the first drive, but didn't do much after that. Campbell is not good at all.

what's with the playcalling by the redskins?

down by 9, 4th and 17 and they throw short. zorn hasn't had a good start as a head coach

ya some of the playcalling was just downright foolish. campbell doesnt look comfortable with the offense yet. there were a number of times where he would be oblivious to a wide open pass protection and just run into the arms of justin tuck, kiwanuka...or whoever.

got to give credit to spagnola...that defense looks impenetrable.

Eli made a handful of pretty terrible throws tonight. He's lucky the Redskin DB's had Ike Taylor hands. If there's anyone who may hold the Giants back from repeating, it'll be him. Of course since he's won a Super Bowl MVP in a game where David Tyree and the Defense won it, the media will label him as godly.

Jason Campbell is horrible. And the Redskin offensive playcalling was atrocious.

All the receivers downfield were covered. It was a dump pass because of good coverage.

His last name and pedigree won't hurt him any in that regard either. However, the NY fans and press are probably the most unforgiving of any NFL city - even a SB MVP award won't buy him goodwill for long if he starts to suck again for any prolonged period of time.

Too true.

I complain about how mercurial our fans are.... but NY fans are UNREAL.
