AP Pro32 comments about Redskins
NEW YORK (AP)
Comments on the Washington Redskins by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
WASHINGTON REDSKINS (7)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 9) - Seventh straight win since bipartisan politics at its best.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 8) - Gimpy knee and all, RG3 is the key to how far Redskins go.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 9)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 7) - Winners of seven straight, only concern I have is how much more effective can RG3 be with his knee still not 100 percent.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 7) - We knew RG3 would be special. But Alfred Morris? The sixth-round sensation sets the single-season franchise record for rushing yards and finishes it off with a flourish in a winner-take-all against Dallas. Brilliantly done.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 10) - Rookies finished third and fourth in the NFL in passing this season - and both rookies took their teams to the playoffs. Robert Griffin III finished third in passing for the Redskins and Russell Wilson fourth for the Seahawks.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 7) - RG3 has done the improbable by putting Washington into the playoffs. Now we get to see if can beat the odds again by solving Seattle on one leg.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 10) - Led by two impact rookies, the NFL's No. 5 offense is rolling downhill.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 8) - The third team in the top ten with a rookie quarterback. The Redskins defense had a brilliant pressure package in passing situations to beat the Cowboys and win the NFC East.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 7) - Mike Shanahan and his staff are doing a masterful coaching job and the Skins are hot.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 7) - Robert Griffin III (knee) didn't look 100 percent healthy against Dallas, but the legs of another Redskins rookie were working just fine. A 200-yard, three touchdown rushing performance by Alfred Morris against Dallas helped Washington win its first NFC East title since 1999.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 8) - They have now avoided committing a turnover in six games this year, which speaks well to their playoff chances.
