Ryan Kerrigan Helps Us Forget Carlos Rogers

I'll make this pretty short and sweet. There were a lot of games over the past few years that should have gone the Redskins way. For example, the TWO dropped interceptions vs the Colts last season by Rogers. There was the same story in our loss to Pittsburgh in 2008. Regardless, turnovers are momentum turners and for years the Redskins have failed to take what is given to them...until yesterday. On the Giants first drive in the second half, with the game tied at 14, Kerrigan bats and catches Eli Manning's third and long pass for a TD. The Giants downwawrd spiral starts from there. Clearly, a big hole from last year at OLB has been filled.

Also, congratulations to Chris Cooley, who's three catches moved him past Jerry Smith as the Redskins' all-time leader in catches by a tight end (423).
