Thought there were some interesting nuggets here, particularly about the Seahags firing up our guys, and the Special Teams stuff. Think Gano will be replaced?

Judging by the fisticuffs that took place during the coin toss, I’d say that I wasn’t the only person at CenturyLink Field who wasn’t a big fan of Seattle. But we’ll get to that in a minute.
Each and every Sunday, the Redskins players meet up at the 50-yard line briefly once they’ve finished their pregame warmups. It only lasts a few seconds, but it’s definitely something they’ve been doing for years — at all games home and away.
Well, because all people in Seattle are clearly insecure, several Seahawks players took this gesture as a slight against them and their captains tried to get in the faces of DeAngelo Hall, London Fletcher and Trent Williams during the coin toss because, as Hall put it, they were made “we stomped on their Seahawk.”
Not only is that a ridiculous sentence to begin with, but it’s also the stupidest thing Seattle could have done. Their unneccessary pushing and shoving motivated the Redskins in a way I haven’t seen this season.
For the first time during the 2011 season, the Redskins offense was able to take the ball and drive down the field for a touchdown on their opening possession. Again, the Seahawks players get all confrontational with the Redskins, who respond by putting together their best opening drive all year long. Coincidence? I think not.
Had they simply come out and said nothing, then the offense likely would have found a way to stall like every other time this season. Instead, they insured a fragile and underperforming team remained highly motivated throughout the contest and ultimately lost to Washington, 23-17.
