- It doesn’t matter how many commercials you see or how many times you watch the start of A Few Good Men; the U.S. Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon (who were on the field at halftime) is still remarkable to watch in person.
- Digital LaRon Landry is trying to pump up the crowd, but he’s still just creeping me out. (Apparently digital LaRon pumps up for the defense, and digital Jason Campbell quiets them down for the offense.)
- Steven Jackson is validating all the ominous things the Redskins defense was saying about him this week. He’s an impressive running back, and the Redskins defense deserves credit for holding the Rams to a field goal after that.
- After a Redskins drive stalls following a sack of Campbell, Durant Brooks gets off what appears to be a legitimately good punt, and even that is returned to the 50. This is one of those games where absolutely everything is going wrong, even when it starts off looking not so bad.
- For further example: the Redskins defense is doing a marvelous job of keeping this one close and keeping the team in it. They’re hassling the Rams, and get a great sack of Bulger to force the punt — and then the offense stalls, Campbell has the ball stripped, and Brooks gets off a punt that doesn’t even land before the crowd starts booing.
- Again the defense hold the Rams to a field goal, and from a certain perspective the Redskins are lucky to only be trailing by nine … against a team that they were favored to beat by two touchdowns. Not a positive first three quarters so far.
