Rex Grossman finally came up with a game-winning pass to help the Washington Redskins end their six-game losing streak.
The formula was working. Things were going according to plan. The Seahawks took a 17-7 lead early in the 4th quarter over an inferior foe, after spotting them a 7-0 lead... Just like the week before in St. Louis. The D was making stops, and Marshawn Lynch was violently assaulting the enemy defense. All the Seahawks needed to do in order to notch a 3rd straight win was hold off the...
With the loss the Seattle Seahawks all but put a fork in their 2011 NFL playoff aspirations. Marshawn Lynch extended his streak of consecutive games with a touchdown to seven and had another 100 yard game. But on Sunday he was the only bright spot. The Seahawks and Tarvaris Jackson let this one slip away vs. Washington Redskins.
At the start of the season, your Redskins Hog Heaven writers told you two things about the 2011 Redskins:
1. The team would be competitive with both Rex Grossman and John Beck at quarterback. The key words were "both" and "competitive."
2. You will like the 2011 team even if they finish with the same record as 2010. We predicted seven wins for the team. You...
After each week of the regular season and possibly during the NFL playoffs should the Seattle Seahawks be so lucky Dave B will stop by and bring you his Seahawks game balls. Balls are awarded to the Seahawks offensive MVP running back Marshawn Lynch, and on defense it goes to defensive end Red Bryant who grabbed himself two more blocked kicks on Sunday...

Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson passed for 144 yards, two Touchdowns, and one Interception. Jackson connected with Running Back Marshawn Lynch and Wide Receiver Golden Tate in the end-zone. Lynch had another good day rushing...
Rex Grossman found Anthony Armstrong for a 50-yard touchdown and the Washington Redskins rallied for 16 fourth-quarter points and stunned the Seattle Seahawks 23-17 on Sunday.
These are the must frustrating types of games. I’ve had to wait several hours since the game ended in order to be able to write up a semi-coherent game summary. The Seahawks lost a game to an inferior team, and blew a 10 point 4th quarter lead in doing so. In my mind, this game, and not the Cleveland game, is the worst loss of the year. I really hope it can’t get any worse...
Matt Moore became a sort of cult figure in Dallas when he was toiling along on the Cowboys practice squad a few years ago. But let's be real, Matt Moore is just Matt Moore.
We don't even have to talk about Rex Grossman. He's just not that good.
Yet, both quarterbacks were able to have big statistical days against the Dallas Cowboys defense despite losing the game.
