07:18 AM ET 11.19 | Robert Griffin III admitted Sunday it was disheartening to see Philadelphia sniff out Washington 's schemes, and he was on to something. What did the Eagles' defense do so well in the first three quarters? Fletcher Cox, who pressured RG3 into that game-sealing interception and who nearly had an interception himself, said his homework paid off. "I think I got into a rhythm going into the game. Actually a few of the plays I called them out before they happened," Cox said. "It all came from studying film and knowing when things were going to happen before they happened." ... The Eagles got lucky in the final minute when RG3 lofted a pass that Brandon Boykin picked off in the end zone, but they also made their own luck. Cox bore down on RG3, who leaned back and tried to throw it out of bounds.

Helen Keller could have seen the Redskins' schemes coming.

SO... wonder who little Danny has in mind as the next HC of his team?

9 days to prepare for the eagles and they came out with Week 1 plays and game planning. It's coaching. Look no further.

Mike Shanahan needs to call the plays and get rid of his son... If this doesn't happen they both need to go. A new defensive coordinator and going back to the 4-3 would be nice too. Hell... Throw a special teams coach in there too.

He can have Garrett who should be available!

Only thing that scares me about seeing Garrett shown the door is Jerry's propensity for bringing in a dude with a ring.






I hope the Skins hire Gruden first.

Most industries wouldn't even allow such nepotism to exist. Definitely undermines their potential.

I would LOVE for Zim to come back to Dallas!

Football is as much a mental contest as it is physical, and players who study the game have an advantage over those who don't. Same is true for coaches.

I don't understand how Zimmer has never gotten a chance. Maybe he just wants to be a coordinator. I can't think that every year every team decides there is someone better.

RG 3 and 7!

Don't sweat it Otis. I've hired a witch from the quarter to stick pins in a Chuckie doll so his **** hurts if he even thinks of Dallas.

I hated it from the start. Try the Father/Son duos in PeeWee football or something. Not the NFL.

This^^^



And one of the first things this nitwit did was change a top 5 4-3 D into Haslett's 3-4 disaster.



Hail to the Redskins.

It'll cost Danny about $20M to fire Shanahan after this season, so he probably rides him 1 more year.

At some point an NFL team should give Mike Leach a look.
