Week 2 The Washington Redskins make NFL History at Lambeau field today!!! Redskins 20, Packers 38

Landover Leap at Lambeau Field?

Sunday at Pluckers in Allen, TX
Being a Redskins fan here in Dallas, TX leaves you with a few choices to watch the game.  Directv NFL Sunday Ticket, visit a friend who has it or find a table at your local bar are your options.  To keep this blog alive I forced myself into a crowded Dallas Cowboy Pub and sat at a table full of Packer fans.  It's pretty interesting watching the game while 6 other games are playing at the same time on different TVs.  Wearing my #10 Robert Griffin III Redskins jersey, I screamed as loud as I could when Brian Orakpo was the second player to sack Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter.  This sack apparently was simultaneous to a great Kansas City Chiefs defensive play (who eventually beat the Cowboys) and the Cowboy fans all looked over at me as the crickets began chirping :)

3-0, 10-0, 17-0, 24-0 the Green Bay Packers were simply kicking the Washington Redskins ass up and down the field as I heard all about it from the 3 drunken "Cheese Head" fans at my table.  The last offensive Packer play of the half was almost a touchdown as James Jones reached for the pylon loosing his grip of the football.  This touchdown would have made the game 31-0 however by rule this 6'' mistake awarded the Redskins a touchback and possession of the football again.  RG3 knelled the snap as the Skins conceded the half.

The Redskins may be the first team in NFL history to have a punter exit the game with a toe injury from too many kicks in the first half.  Today however they did make NFL history for letting another quaterback pass for 480 yards while also letting a runningback rush for 132 yards in the same game.  Commentator and ex New York Giant Michael Strahan referred to a slow Griffin as R2D2 on the Fox halftime show .  If RG3 can't manage score at least 14 points in the first half against the Detroit Lions next week then he deserves a starting position on the bench. "You can't overreact, but you know there's a sense of urgency," Mike Shanahan said.

I would recommend for any fantasy football owners to start Detroit players to include but not limited to Mathew Stafford, Reggie Bush or Megatron Calvin Johnson.  The Lions should be a winnable game for the Skins and there not in that big of a hole at this point.  The Cowboys, Giants and Eagles all lost yesterday making the 0-2 Redskins only one game back for the NFC East lead.  :)  Thanks to all of my friends on Facebook and LinkedIn for critiquing my blog last week and leaving constructive comments to make this better.
