Chris Baker And Eli Manning Made Up

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 21, 2014 – 10:34 am

The Redskins defensive end and the Giants quarterback found common ground below the Rocky Mountains.

Chris Baker has been in Denver rooting on his childhood pal, Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton. Eli Manning was of course at Sunday’s AFC Championship to support his older brother, Denver quarterback Peyton Manning.

Baker rolled up on Eli Manning’s ankle in December, causing an injury that would eventually knock him out of the regular season finale in New York. On Instagram all appeared to be well between the two professionals over the weekend.

First Quarter Happenings: #NYGvsWAS

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 1, 2013 – 8:14 pm



The Redskins need to force the worst out of this guy.

Heading into Sunday, only one man had thrown more interceptions than Eli Manning in 2013, and he was benched in favor of an undrafted rookie with a famous last name. The Jets sat down Geno Smith (18 interceptions prior to Sunday) and trotted out Matt Simms in a loss to the Dolphins. I can’t imagine a scenario in which Tom Coughlin pulls Manning (17 picks) against the Redskins.  Read more »

Vote RG3 As Your No. 10 Of The Day

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 21, 2012 – 9:05 am

Today’s game between the Washington Redskins and the New York Giants features a battle of No. 10s at quarterback.

The Redskins (3-3) are led by dymanic rookie Robert Griffin III, who has thrice been named the NFL’s Rookie of the Week. The Giants (4-2) are led by veteran Eli Manning, a two-time Super Bowl Most Valuable Player.

As always, you Redskins have a voice in picking which No. 10 you think will excel in today’s game.

Voting for Griffin III in today’s campaign is easy:

Can Griffin III Win The Battle Of No. 10s?

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 17, 2012 – 10:14 am

The Redskins on Sunday travel to New York to take on the Giants in Washington’s latest division-opening game since at least 1970.

That, of course, means it’s the NFC East debut of Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, who is coming off an electrifying performance in Washington’s 38-26 win last Sunday over the Minnesota Vikings. Griffin III completed 17-of-22 passes for 182 yards and one touchdown along with rushing for 138 yards and two scores on the ground to already become the Redskins’ single-season record holder for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback.

The quarterback on the opposing team, meanwhile, also happens to wear No. 10 and has a pretty impressive NFL résumé. Giants quarterback Eli Manning is a two-time Super Bowl champ and MVP, and this season ranks third in passing yards and seventh in passing touchdowns in the NFL.

Several analysts are wondering how Griffin III will fare in his first NFC East game, especially one away from FedExField. The NFL Network’s “Total Access” and experts Darren Sharper and Heath Evans recently guessed which No. 10 would outperform the other on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

Here’s what they had to say:

First Quarter Thoughts

Posted by Brian Tinsman on September 11, 2011 – 5:07 pm

Rivalry games frequently come down to one or two big plays that make the difference.

One of those plays is already in the books.

For the first five minutes of the game, the story line was about defense.  Both teams were creating pressure with the front four and five, forcing both quarterbacks to unload wobbly check-down passes.  But on 3rd-and-10, Giants quarterback stepped up in the pocket to avoid a blitzing Ryan Kerrigan, and had a wide-open Hakim Nicks down the field for a 68-yard bomb.

Cornerback Kevin Barnes and safety Reed Doughty got burned on the play, but a credit to them for not giving up on their responsibilities.  The Giants skated into the endzone two plays later, but effort on plays like that, matter.

On the next Washington possession, quarterback Rex Grossman hit Tim Hightower for a 10-yard gain.  This was Grossman’s 80th completed pass as a Redskin, and 600th career pass.

Pop the bubbly.

Special teams are yielding mixed results at the moment.  Unfortunately, kicker Graham Gano started 2011 with more of what plagued him in 2010: a missed 39-yard field goal.  Brandon Banks looks to be in mid-season form, giving the Redskins pretty good starting field position.

See you at the half.
