01:08 AM ET 12.05 | I never thought I'd say this, especially this season, but maybe Jim Schwartz should take some tips from Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan. With less than two minutes to go in the Monday night game against the Giants, the Redskins have a one-point lead and the ball to try and close out the game. On first-and-10, instead of running the ball to try and drain the clock, the play call is a play-action pass by ROOKIE quarterback Robert Griffin III. First down, game over.

Their head coach is a punk who's more concerned with appearing tough rather than having the discipline to play as is needed at the time to win. He's a moron!

No killer instinct on the field? Suh sure does try.

Yeah but trying to kill opposing players' family jewels doesn't really count.

Agreed he has killer instinct..but he'd be bashing an offensive lineman's head while the running back runs for a score...Suh looks at the back and goes back to crushing the lineman because that's what he's more interested in.

I was there. Game was surprisingly competitive, I'll bet RGIII didn't expect he'd be coming back to his seat to watch the second half!

Lions don't have a killer instinct? Nonsense! Suicide is a killer instinct.
