Here is what you need to know on this Sunday, October 7, the day the Redskins play the undefeated Falcons at FedEx Field.
Come join in the chat
So, using the Google I figured out that about half a million people will be watching the Redskins-Falcons game. Since, as I noted yesterday, about half of the people watching the game will have a second screen in front of them in the form of a computer, tablet, or smart phone, we should have about 250,000 folks in on today’s chat.
OK, that might get to be a bit out of hand. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t join me, Tarik, and Jen X for today’s live game chat. We’ll get going at around 12:30, come on by right here at www.RealRedskins.com.
We might get started a bit early, check out my slightly revised Twitter feed @Rich_TandlerCSN and I'll let you know.
RG3 fine in the rain
Robert Griffin III is likely to face some adverse weather conditions today for the first time in his career as a steady rain is forecast throughout today’s 1:00 game against the Falcons.
However, RG3 likes that kind of party. At least he did the last time he was involved in a wet-weather game. That was last December in Waco, Texas in the final regular-season game of his Baylor career.
Robert Griffin III lifted Baylor to its best football in a generation.
On Saturday, in what may be the last home game of his college career, the Bears quarterback put on the kind of performance that could convince Heisman Trophy voters he's best player in the country.
Griffin ran for two touchdowns, passed for two more and led the Bears (No. 17 BCS, No. 19 AP) to a 48-24 win over Texas in a statement game on national television. He passed for 320 yards with touchdown strikes of 59 and 39 yards.
It would appear that rain is no problem for Griffin.
