    They could have, but there was no realistic prospect of trading Bradford.

    Also, UniWatch commented this morning on the ridiculous navy over navy look throughout the NFL this weekend.

    True. But even supposing that they could've pawned Bradford off on someone else--difficult because he was drafted before the new rookie contract scale, which means he's making something like 4x what other guys drafted in his position are--they would now be without a starting DT and a starting CB, both of whom were acquired with draft picks from trading first rounders with the 'Skins.

    I've seen enough of Bradford playing against the Redskins the past couple of seasons to believe that he can be an elite QB with a decent supporting cast. He is playing with arguably the worst o-line + WRs in the league.

    Poor Alex Smith. Harbaugh all but said that Kaepernick is the starter when Smith returns from injury. Now I think that "starter doesn't lose his job because of injury" is one of the dumbest "rules" in professional sports, but Smith was playing pretty well when he went down.

    Wow, I just saw one of the worst calls I've ever seen in an NFL game. If the Lions lose this, their fans will have a right to be furious.

    Also, how can NFL head coaches not know the rules concerning when they can throw their challenge flags?

    That call is on on Schwartz more than anything. If he wasn't such a hot head and knew the rules the TD would have been reversed.

    I'd agree with you if the call the refs missed were close. But the RB was as down as down could be. Not saying Schwartz isn't partly to blame, but the refs really messed up in a big way, IMO.


    Yup. I'm reading a lot of people online suggesting it was accidental. I can't imagine what they're seeing if they really think that.

    RG3 is looking like the best QB in the NFC East, by far. Could the Redskins be the real deal? Never would've thought before this season that they'd have a shot to be a playoff team.
