Found September 16, 2012 on Redskins Hog Heaven:
How do you spell "St. Louis Rams?" T-R-A-P. After the Washington Redskins eye opening adventure last Sunday in New Orleans, fans expect the team to crush the Lambs. It's a dangerous attitude. The 'Skins could manage no better than 2-2 against the Rams in the last four games of the series, and barely that. It shows how far Washington fell after Joe Gibbs' abrupt departure in 2007. Robert Griffin III displayed excellent execution of a game plan designed not to challenge him beyond his experience. It rubbed off on the rest of the team. He did it against the NFL's worst defense, according to Football Outsider's preseason ranking. The Rams defense is not the Saints defense. The Rams defense is tougher than the Saints. Don't be fooled by St. Louis 27-23 loss to Detroit. The Rams came within a whisker of an upset – the Lions' winning score came in the game's last ten seconds.

Did Rams bench Steven Jackson after personal foul?

Steven Jackson has been the face of the St. Louis Rams franchise for several seasons. Now, in just his second game as head coach of the Rams,  it appears that Jeff Fisher is showing that "Action Jackson" may not be the face of the franchise any longer.

The Skins loss IS on Josh Morgan

Josh Morgan commits 15 yard personal foul penalty by throwing the ball at Cortland Finnegan Yesterday in the Redskins loss to the Rams, Josh Morgan made one of the worst boneheaded plays I have ever seen.

Scab Refs Have to Get Some Control Over Games

Rams CB Cortland Finnegan has always taken pride in getting in the heads of opposing players. The scab refs inability to control the tone of games can benefit players like him. I hope that we’ve seen enough of the fill-in refs to stop the whole narrative of “well the real refs miss calls too” and start being honest with ourselves. The fake refs are losing control of games and...
