Anyone want to bet Griffin tore the ACL on that knee?

10 points is barely?
And, last time I checked, RGIII doesn't play defense.
Apparently, other than the 1st quarter, the entirety of the Redskins team doesn't either

I doubt it. It buckeld to the left and right sign of damge to the lateral ligaments.

An ACL occurs when the leg is pushed forwards form behind with the bodyweight on it.

But I might be wrong. I hope for him that it's not an ACL on the knee he allready had ACL reconstructive surgery.

You mad, sis?

Pleased as punch actually
I just think it's a bit silly that, again, little credit seems to be given to the Seahawks for the victory - kinda like when one of the NFLN analysts (I forget which one but, he's a former player) said after the Hawks beat the Cowboys that the Cowboys played down to their competition.

If RGIII had been 100% maybe there would have been a different outcome but, he wasn't and there wasn't ("if ifs and buts were candy and nuts", as they say)

Anyhoo, just makes the chip on "Team Chip" a little bigger

I'd love to see Sherman take on a big, physical receiver like Boldin and watch boldin knock him on his a$$.

That's what sets a hot team on fire: The Chip. The Niners had it pretty much all of last year and a few games this year but this year it's kind of died down. We need that damn chip back!

There's nothing silly about saying the outcome would have been different with a healthy RGIII. You played against a team with no QB. Its just fact, not silly. And that QB at 85% was killing your defense. Once he got injured, there was a clear drop off.

Thats like saying the Niners are legit if the beat an Rogerless packer team on Sat. It wouldn't mean much but an advancement to the next round which it does for Seattle. Thats the problem with Seattle fans. Want credit? For what? Going 11-5, runner up in the division, beating up a division champ and home, and barely beating a team with no QB...

What is there to give credit for? Win a championship and come back looking for credit. Your fans called niners pretenders all the way up to and after teh NFCC game last year but all of a sudden you guys want some credit...

You won't get it from meaningless wins. Not from here and not from the experts either.

We'll have to agree to disagree.
A playoff win on the road with a rookie QB, and 34 other team members for whom it was their "first rodeo", is far from "meaningless".

And, as I mentioned, had RGIII been 100%, the outcome MAY have been different but, he doesn't play defense and it looks like the Hawks were able to score a few unanswered points...

Good luck with the Pack.
IF the Hawks advance, I'm thinking the Stick sounds better than the frozen tundra

Yes, your first playoff road win since 1983 is meaningful to the Seahawks franchise, but to the rest of the NFL, its MEANINGLESS. Unless you win a title, nobody is gonig to give you credit, which you think is sill that you don't get any. That's my point. Tebow won a wildcard game for god sakes...

I guess it makes sense that a team with little success and rarely sniffs the postseason would expect credit for a wildcard win vs. RG-KNEE.

We are #2 seed for two years in a row and still don't get "credit." Who cares? Win a trophy then tell everyone else to suck it. Until then, be a humble small fish franchise as you've always been.

I don't want any credit ;)
But, I'll give the Seahawks some - and we'll see where they go from here.

Considering this young, re-building team, most were probably not even expecting a playoff appearance. So, regardless of the outcome of the game in Atlanta on Sunday, this organization has taken a huge step forward and the future is looking bright

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Semantics eh. Ok.

Enjoy the "huge step forward," because you know, in the NFL, its guaranteed next year as well....

Of course nothing is guaranteed. Injuries happen, players regress.
But, the Hawks look worlds better than they have in years and with so much hungry youth, it stands to reason that improvement is more likely than regression.
Could just be my rose-colored glasses, but I'm way more encouraged for the future this year than I was say, three years ago. There is a plan and it's coming to fruition.
(heck, my other team is the Mariners ... so, by comparison, you can see why I'm rather jubilant )

Yup. Clemons already tore his ACL.

I assume there will be more suspensions for that PED ring Chete has going on.

What is it now? FIVE players have already been caught during his tenure? I doubt that is a coincidence. Sleezy Petey.

Browner, Sherman, Winston Guy, John Moffit and Allen Barbe.... The real Damn dirty birds...lol

'T is unfortunate. Hopefully, they have learned a lesson. They aren't the first and likely won't be the last on any team or in any sport to make a severe error in judgement in order to gain an edge.
