Is all I can say with the last two days of football.
Started Sunday with the Steelers battling the Ravens. I said in an earlier blog I wear my Steeler heart on my sleeve. I watched the first half of that game sat down at the dinner table ate supper and said I can not put in another week of this I just can't do it anymore. Without Big Ben.I saw ESPN was going to put the 2012 World Series video on so I said I will watch that. I heard my family upstairs making a comotion so I figured it was good. I flipped over as Shaun Suisham hit the game winning fg as the Steelers won 23-20.I said "thank God Ben get better". Flipped back over to what I was watching. If the Redskins beat the Ravens Sunday and Steelers beat the Chargers. Ravens fans you have a divisional race on your hands. And the last four games for the Ravens are not cake walks. As it goes like this. @Redskins,Broncos,@Giants,@Bengals. All four teams figthing for a playoff spot. (or in the Broncos case a better seeding) The Steelers have. Chargers, @Cowboys Bengals ,Browns. Only one is fighting for a spot of those four. Many will tell you yhe Cowboys but I feel they are dead. So a loss to the Redskins and it gets interesting indeed!
Ok enough of that and on to the Redskins Giants game.
What can we say about RGIII? Guy is a rookie and is leading this team to a possible playoff spot. And truth be told I thought the Redskins would be in the 4-12,5-11 area. And am I WRONG. As they beat the Giants tonight 17-16 and made the Redskins 6-6. And looking at the final four games after there win tonight 10-6 the division and playoffs are not out of the question. As the Redskins final four games goes like this. Ravens,@Browns,@Eagles,Colts. Two come against teams that have a playoff shot the other two are dead. But the way the Skins are playing right now and the way they this team has some faith? All four are overly winnable And the Giants remaining four looks like this. Saints,@Falcons,@Ravens, Eagles. So the division is not totally out of the question.
These final four weeks promise to shape up to be exciting ones as we close out the year 2012 and enter 2013.
