Going from 3-6 to 10-6 and a division title is the most unexpected thing I have seen here with the Redskins since the 1980's.

I remember the 1970's Steelers starting off one year at 0-4 and making the playoffs but they were defending champs.

This team emerged from nowhere.

I've been handing it to Dallas fans relentlessly, it's such a beautiful thing. I did hear quite a few absurdities too. Like we got away with a lot and Dallas got called for everything, a guy actually said Tony Romo got that snap off well before the play clock expired, and he said that it's obvious the league is in the tank for us. WTF? Drugs must be wicked harsh this time of year in Dallas.

Oh, and a guy tells me Russell Wilson is better than RG3, stats and reality be damned.

Time for Dallas to rebuild. This really was their last chance for Romo, Witten and Co. to try and get this done after several failures.

At 33 next season, Jerry Jones has to start looking for a franchise qb to lead their club into the future.

How quickly the NFL turns.

Washington wins the NFC East going 5-1 against division opponents in 2012.

Meanwhile:

Andy Reid is going to be fired by the Eagles on Monday.

The Giants and Eli Manning miss the playoffs after winning the SB last season.

Dallas beats the Giants in the showcase opening game and then also finishes out of the playoffs.

There's a guy on NFL.com for going on and on about what a ball hog Griffin is. And I'm the clueless one for arguing with him. All he does is hog the ball like Cam Newton does, according to this clown.

Morris had 33 carries for 200 yards and 3 touchdowns.

If anyone owned the rock it was #46.

I recall one pass play for a first down where Fletch not only got held, but spun around. Another where AlMo got horsecollared and no call... it went on an on.

The only team with a winning record in the division.

Alfred Morris sets a new Redskins rushing record - ended up with 1,613 yards on the season.

Third most points scored in the NFL this season and first in the NFC.

Swept the Cowboys. Swept the Eagles. Came within one play of sweeping the Giants.

And the sweetest of all - Mara stays home for the new year. May it become a yearly occurrence.

Well, I think the decision NOT to draft Blaine Gabbert or Jake Locker and wait for a true franchise quarterback like Griffin to come along was not such a bad call by Shanahan after all.

Of course it means you have to come up with those late round picks like Morris and undrafted free agents like Forbath who come in and play at a pro bowl level to support him.

Anybody want to trade Griffin for Blaine Gabbert and what are now looking like two mid-first rounders?

The fans that showed up last night were ****ing awesome! It was 90% skins fans. I was so impressed. Can't wait to see the showing for a home playoff game.
