Found September 17, 2012 on Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
Who would’ve thought one of the most exciting games on Sunday would’ve been between the Washington Redskins and the St. Louis Rams. It looked as if the Rams were going to lose this one after the refs blew a 1 yard touchdown but Rams RB Steven Jackson. Jackson spiked the ball in frustration and received [...]

More of the same old culture from the Redskins

My biggest problem with Josh Morgan’s bonehead move yesterday was not the penalty or even the action itself. The issue is that I sat on my couch and watched a player on my favorite team act like a 7-year-old getting called out in kickball — and I was not surprised at all. It’s been going on for a while in DC. It seems every week we are in someones face, shoving players, or...

Mike Shanahan Calls Josh Morgan 'Emotionally Explosive' But Doesn't Ask for Apology After Costly Penalty

Missed field goals and quarterback gaffes can be forgiven. Losing your cool and chucking a football at an opposing player? Well, that's something else -- especially if the hothead move costs your team 15 yards, a chance at a first down and maybe even the game. But Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, who is not known for taking much foolishness on his football teams, was pretty even...

NFL Rumors: Should Washington Redskins Cut Josh Morgan Following Costly Penalty?

Josh Morgan may have cost the Washington Redskins a chance at starting the 2012 NFL season 2-0. It is that easy. With that being said, could the Redskins send a message to the rest of the team that stupid penalties will not be tolerated and cut their new wide receiver? Stranger things have happened, especially when it comes to Mike Shanahan and Daniel Snyder making decisions. Morgan...

Josh Morgan’s boneheaded play cost the Redskins a win

Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Morgan may have cost his team a win during Sunday’s loss to the Rams. Trailing 31-28 with 1:27 on the clock, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III completed a third-and-8 pass to Morgan for 7 yards. It wasn’t enough for the first down, but Morgan’s grab would have positioned Billy Cundiff for a 48-yard field-goal attempt. That all floated...

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. Down 3 with 1:19 to play, the Redskins offense managed to get themselves in field goal range on a third down pass to Josh Morgan (we will excuse the fact that he should have...

Chris Long taunts Josh morgan after his boneheaded mistake

On Sunday, Redskins wide receiver Josh Morgan made a big mistake by getting called for a 15 yard unsportsmanlike penalty after throwing a football at Rams cornerback Cortland Finnigan for pushing him down.  It was a big mistake because it was during a potential game winning drive within the final few minutes of the game.  The penalty ended up pushing the Redskins out of field goal...

Redskins WR Josh Morgan Won’t Be Disciplined for Throwing Ball at Cortland Finnegan

  That’s right Josh, a Wide Receiver catches the ball he doesn’t throw it. Now you’ve got it. Just a brief update on Redskins WR Josh Morgan who lost his cool after  Cortland Finnegan slapped him on the head. Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said he won’t punish Josh Morgan for the mistake. He also said that he didn’t even pull Josh aside to talk about it rather addressed...

Replacement Officials Blow Steven Jackson Touchdown Call, NFL Lucky Rams Still Win (Video)

The replacement officials were at it again on Sunday. When will this national nightmare end? With the Rams trailing 14-3 midway through the second quarter, Steven Jackson scored a touchdown from one-yard-out. At least, that's what he thought. That's what it looked like on replay too, but according to the NFL's replacement officials, he hadn't. That's when Steven...

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. It looked as though Fisher benched Jackson after Jackson was flagged for a personal foul in the second quarter of the...

Rams RB Jackson benched by Fisher

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson was benched early in the second quarter of the Rams' 31-28 win over Washington on Sunday when he drew an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for spiking the ball after he was ruled short of the goal line on a third-down carry from the 1. He never returned to the game as the Rams went with rookies Isaiah Pead and Daryl Richardson in the...

By game's end, the Rams dominated the Redskins

The Washington Redskins were losing to the St. Louis Rams by half time, even though they led 21-16. The Rams scored 10 points in the last two minutes, riding a tailwind of momentum as they ran to the locker room. By the end of the half, the Rams dominated in the most offensive way, by running 38 offensive plays to the Redskins' 24, by gaining 179 yards to Washington's 101...
