All of a backwards in the nation presented by -- Larry Michael with you as always enjoyed each week. By rich Taylor from CSN Washington dot com does a great job blogging about the team. I'm -- a curve ball. Before we talk about the New York Giants it's my specialty did you know that all the teams -- Redskins are competing for six -- Dallas Minnesota Tampa New Orleans and Seattle did you know the Redskins have the easiest schedule the rest of the way. Except for the Cowboys.
I said I'd. I've heard something like that which is how surprised they're they're facing next George they're facing two. First place teams but then also have to that it had a pair of three and eight teams and Browns and Eagles yeah that would make some makes -- so --
Know that of those tapes Dallas Green Bay Minnesota Tampa New Orleans Seattle there either all. Six survivor five and six did you know that all but one of those teams are road underdogs this week. No I actually ahead and look at the matchups that that carefully yet but I guess it pays to look at that stuff that that went to New Orleans at Atlanta and Minnesota at Green Bay Tampa and Denver Seattle at Chicago. All road dogs Dallas -- Philly. It's not the case there.
But I think he's really found a place for the Redskins on Sunday with the exception of the Giants game so maybe that could have another. We don't watch out on another good Sunday wait for that for that Monday night game and then that's going to be up to them.
How much do you think that game on October 21 to give the -- is like get away from Victor Cruz caught that they took their best. How much does that stick in the redskins' all you -- the locker room today.
Yeah I did it and it doesn't -- you know that they say that you you can't look back at that and they you know that -- learn from an event that -- You know you've you've you've subtracting game from the Giants had a game the Redskins game is for first place and the Redskins were going for it to that loss. -- But you know I think they get to -- good shot that Antonio they feel like the Giants dodged a -- basically.
There's a bigger picture too when you look at the ownership that new York and you see some of the comments made. By John -- this week about the penalty the Redskins were imposed. Very unfair. No rule written rules violated the league affect a ball back the salary cap muggy. And now this week we're hearing comments. From the Giants over the last but that's -- to buy him a big budget.
Now John -- he was born naked in the world he had to inherit everything -- so -- and separate from sympathy for the guys here. If you hit that did so yeah head head -- you know John and it's it's a done deal you know just just. Shut up.
I'm not trying to go to and I mean it is as bad blood there are now. -- Giants coming off an impressive win over Green Bay a lot of people thought that you know may be lie his arm is too 'cause arms got tired I couldn't.
And it was our hearts just as the NFL's not is that Stephen Strasburg. But out. Yes you know that -- they did look good but -- the NFL is a week to week. Kind of league you know we've we've seen especially the Giants. They've been up and down they lost. Know last year I think they lost to the Saints by 251 week next week went into Dallas and one that was so you know it is just very. You know especially Energizer -- consistent team so what they did last week you know you don't -- they're favorites and deservedly so I want Monday. But what dated last week may not have a whole lot to do what they do this week.
Can you recall a bigger game in December at FedEx really good cover this team for a long time and moment of -- on the blog -- all kinds of stuff you're gonna roll out later in the week. How do you put this game in context -- say that.
Asked -- years -- I think -- 2007 they played the Cowboys in the season finale at FedEx Field and in a win and in scenario.
Lleyton 2005. They had games against you they beat the Cowboys and the Giants to finish that.
That run to get in the play especially had to go to Philadelphia on New Year's Easter to clinch the spot that trip very well yeah but that that that got to go and so. You know there have been some may have been the last five years you won't find a bit -- December game in this one.
Final thing for your rich RG three obviously had a super year and all kinds of records -- up this guy. Just playing great football but there have been some people who said after the second go around with some of these teams. Don't take a look at the tape they'll realize what the Redskins are doing. And they'll catch up didn't seem to happen hasn't seemed to happen I mean so far this is the giants' second look at -- What do you think.
Well you know this this is where we'll see if that -- that that's how you know they they can scheme and that can look at things but you know as a matter of being the talent.
I would also be very surprised. I remember New York used a lot of lot of that that power three running backs that right they had -- young split out wide -- item is snaps. I -- do that again I think they're gonna you know against Europe stir things up a little bit. -- about and the Giants once again. Be just trying to compete and again even if they do have a good idea what they're doing and is beating RG three's physical talent you know he -- hard to -- an arm like that. It's hard to -- speed. It's you know it's just it's easier said than done if you figure out scheme.
Redskins have been losing players want final thing Pritchard if we can squeeze it and -- to -- losing players week after week. Twelve players on injured reserve four of them are starters who do you have and -- the rest of this week we keep a dialogue to see if they'll be ready to play I guess one of -- yeah.
He's he's really the guy and especially with the with his back up Keenan Robinson haven't gone -- into reserve. That becomes a look a little more important but I know we talked Mike Shanahan on Monday. And he said hey you know he's stopped really doubting they did that the guys can be out there.
Yeah I think you wanna make a battle whether -- plays and when I -- of -- I think it's okay. Appreciate rich Taylor will check about it CSN Washington dot com and the fan of form coming up next on --
