It happens from time to time, but luckily Rice has gotten quite good at catching balls onehanded
Then again, if Welker had caught Brady's pass, we'd be talking about NE having a fourth SB.
It's actually a problem with a lot of QBs, not just Flacco, Gary. Flacco will never throw four or five picks in a game, so that's a plus.
sorry to butt in...i'm a dolphin fan and we finally have some spark on offense unfortunately no WR threat nor a secondary worth a shit....
but,i live in the tampa bay area...and these guys might have something going in the next year or so...doug martin is beast and V.J. has all the WRs playing at a higher level...these guys might be dangerous next season...shiano is for real
It all depends on Josh Freeman. If he keeps playing like he has this year, they should be a good team. Like last year, and the Buc's are not going anywhere. Doug Martin is a beast, great back.
A solid win for the Redskins tonight. A win over the Ravens, who have struggled in some games, and then three very winnable games against the Browns, Cowboys, and Eagles would leave the Redskins at 10-6, which is enough for a playoff berth, whether or not that's a division title we'll have have to see. If the Giants lose once more and the Redskins win out (which would be a seven game winning streak), the Redskins would win the NFC East on divisional record as they split the season series.
That was NFC East football how it's supposed to be played! Last night was a game Gibbs and Parcells would have recognized, especially the second half. I'm not thinking about the playoffs yet, to much has to happen, we need to much help. I'm excited to see the Redskins relevant again, for the first time in ages the Skins are actually fun to watch. That is what RG3 has really meant to DC, this team is exciting again. A great win too, the offensive line was masterful; 207 yards rushing, no sacks. RG3 may have been the star, but I'm glad Alfred Morris had the chance to shine nationally. He's a beast, tied with Doug Martin for most rushing yards by a rookie (3rd overall).

i agree,alfred morris is just outta nowhere and beasting...garcon is coming along as well as the rest of the WRs....
also,they gave eli 11mins to do something...and the D really showed up...wish u guys luck...i kinda always doug the redskins(doug williams)
Unfortunate that RG3 got hit like that, but it is the Ravens, a team known for hard hits. Some Ravens player (the same guy who injured Welker a few seasons before when the guy played for another team) wrecked Gronk last season.
Thankfully, it didn't cost the Redskins the game.
Ngata's hit was legal, Griffin wasn't playing smart there at all...slide dude.
Well, it's true that the Steelers are fined much more often than the Ravens; I was insinuating that the Ravens make choicer hard hits, and don't make overly blatant illegal hits on defenseless receivers like James Harrison does, but that doesn't make them any less of a hard hitting team. Ray Lewis definitely attempts to light people up at times. :derp
Nowhere did I say that Ngata's hit wasn't legal. I just said that it was excessively hard. Griffin should've slid, but Ngata would've hit him just as hard whether or not Griffin had slid. I'm also not saying that Ngata was trying to injure him, but that the Ravens are a hard hitting team. We've seen defensive players attempt to hammer running QBs this season, not on the Ravens, but across the league. Defensive players need to find ways to get their hits in on the QB now, and sometimes it happens in unfortunate ways like today.
Hopefully Griffin will be okay, or commentators will start having discussions about whether or not you should even be able to touch a QB once he's become a runner.
The game is fluid, rules change, all in hopes of improving the product. But these sort of things, it's just TOO much.
Yeah, there are positive rule changes, but more often than not, Goodell's rule changes have been anything but good.
