Seattle have a good defense, and a QB who isn't hobbled, they also have the run game with beast mode and Wilson. I don't see this as a good matchup for the Skins at first glance. Seattle are a more complete team.

RGIII ought be resting that knee up, because he's about 50% when he's running on it.

Rarely have I seen a matchup that will play into Seattles hands as much as this Washington set up. Personally I was shocked to see Seattle favourites and I was winding up for my maximum on them at +1 or 2. None the less I am a backer at the -2. Anyone that thinks the Seahawks are jsut hot air this year has not been watchning enough football. In fact the matchup the following week in Atlanta is even better for them. Have a bit of the 14/1 as well to win it all

Report d13phe January 2, 2013 2:55 PM GMT
i suggest you look at the stats.

the redskins can score points but on average only 1.4 points more on offense than the Seahawks.

the seahawks however only gave up an average of 15 points per game in comparison to redskins 24.2

I would also like the stress that the Seahawks strength of schedule has been a lot stronger.
Report lustrumm January 2, 2013 4:59 PM GMT
The single biggest factor here is the rate of improvement. The Seahawks are not the same team since they went to Miami and got caught on the hop. This game is actually really simple. RG111 will have some success with the Seahawks but he will have to work hard for it. Wilson will be able to stand behind his offensive line all day long and pick apart the Redskins Secondary. It really is that simple. The Sehawks over match them in every facet you look at.
The only thing going for the Redskins is their coach and home advantage. I wouldn't understimate that but it is not enough for me to desert Seattle now. How lucky the rest of them were that San Fran beat New England a few weeks ago or they would all be going to Seattle until the NFC final in San Francisco

He said to NBC after the game on Sunday night that his knee felt a lot better against Dallas than it did against Philly.
That is why the Skins were conservative with their play calls against Dallas. They knew Morris would pound them into the ground and it gave RG III more of an easy ride/
They will open up the play book big time this weekend and the Hawks will get burned

Again some badly informed comment here "RG3 is miles better tha Wilson" Only someone not watching enough Football could say that. If this game (it won't) comes down to a shoot out between the QBs there is only 1 winner.

The key to this game is that RG3 even if fit is not going to be able to gallop around the field like he has been doing. If he takes off the Seattle D will hurt him properly, they are just too quick to be scrambled on like he has been getting away with. Therefore he will have to stand in the pocket and throw and as soon as that happens the mistakes will come.
That is the game imo.

I said it last week and re-iterate it now, Seattle could not have hand picked a better opponent for an away play off game

Wilson will be sacked more times than Mark Hughes and RG3 will silence the doubters once again. It's not just about the players though is it. Shanahan and RG3 work brilliantly together. It's hard to see where the ball's going in slow motion so no wonder defense safeties are being made to look stupid. Go skins!

I follow the SeaHawks, watch all their games online, read all the reports on them etc.. and my view FWIW is that while they lost the week after their bye week it was the making of them. The bye week gave them time to draw breath and realise they could compete with the best and after the Miami loss they have been improving every week. Furthermore they got a great last game as well against the Rams. Wilson is improving every single game, he is a highly intelligent man that is a rookie in name only

They're a good team there's no doubt but what I can't quantify is how pivotal their home crowd is to their success?! I'm thinking they're slightly overrated here. I also have a feeling the skins crowd will be trying to do a role reversal and make it a nightmare for Wilson! Don't forget this game is on turf also. Might not appear much but defo an advantage to the home team if the opposition come from astro IMO.

No contest in the end as I guess most of us did not realise how bad the injury RG111 was carrying. FWIW I felt Shanahan should have pulled him as soon as it was obvious to Seattle he could not run as that made it easy for them on defence. I wonder if there will be repercussions for Shanahan risking his prize asset especially further to the USA Today exclusive that he rushed him back any given Sunday style. An awful risk to take with a young man that will be their franchise quarterback.
Anyone remember the same injury that Carlson Palmer got in a Bengals playoff game in 2005. He was never the same again after it

I didn't bet on the match as we didn't know about the status of RG3. Yes until RG3's knee got completely blown out late on in the first quarter there was only one team in it. Pretty disgraceful that RG3 was left out so long I agree as he was all but in a wheelchair for the best part of three quarters. Hopefully Atalanta will be a good price next week, regulation home win is on the cards and the bonus is Seattle will be underpriced based on what turned into a joke match tonight

This is on Shanahan - he is a disgrace. The result may or may not have been the same with Cousins after the 1st quarter but keeping RG III on is the worst decision in NFL history. I only hope and pray RG III doesn't suffer any lasting damage

The last two games showed he was OK to start. It was a bonehead decision to keep him on the pitch after his knee went in the first quarter though. If it was a horse there'd be hell to pay. You have to question his lack of care for his body. Hope he hasn't done his ACL.

The Washington Redskins' treatment of franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III will be the subject of debate for the offseason and likely for the rest of his career — especially if the heralded rookie suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament Sunday; he was already playing hobbled because of a sprained knee.

Griffin was knocked out of a 24-14 wild-card loss to the Seattle Seahawks one day after James Andrews, a team orthopedist, told USA TODAY Sports he was "scared to death" over Griffin playing with an injured knee and a brace.

And Sunday, for the second time, Andrews insisted he never cleared Griffin to return to a game in which Griffin initially injured his knee, even though coach Mike Shanahan again tried to lay the responsibility on him
.

This saga is just getting started.

The look on Andrews face said it all last night. This guy is the top bod, he treats all the top baseball players too. These guys don't fool around with careers, they save them. His reputation would mean everything to him.
