It's still on here because I am in the DC market. Good game.

Kelley had a beastly 18 yard run on 1st-and-20 in OT that put the 'skins in easy FG range. They ran one more play to center the ball for a chip shot to win.... and then their kicker missed it.

Amazingly, multiple kicks were missed by both teams today in Wembley... a field that is made for a sport involving KICKING. :shock:

Bengals and Redskins traveled thousands of miles to kiss their proverbial sister. Ugh.

Did Kelly ever get 20+ carries in a game for us?

In defense of the coaches, who do you take carries from? Darkwa? Badie? Thompson? Hilliard? Fat Rob left a lot of good football out there and it wasn't all CJ's fault. Kelley never had a full offseason of work & often wasn't in top shape. That said, I am tickled to death for Rob. Bless him.

Maybe they thought they'd pay tribute on a field that is made for a sport involving TIES.

It's a shame that the NY Giants, and Darkwa, didn't play last week. Would love to have seen THREE Tulane RBs score TDs on one NFL weekend.

Thought the announcers said second. Still lots of good coverage!

And adds a 66 yard run to his total!

And his 3rd TD shortly after! Monster night.

And now, a 66-yd run from scrimmage, to the 4 yard line.

Which he follows with a 4-yd TD. THREE for the night.


Collingsworth and Costas are running out of superlatives to praise Rob.

This really may be the best example of not only the ineptitude of the previous staff from a coaching and game planning perspective, but also the total inability to even see talent:

Last night, Rob Kelley had 137 yards rushing and 3 TDs. In his senior year at Tulane, Rob Kelley had 232 yards and 1 TD in 12 games played.

In his last 3 games, Rob Kelley has received 21, 22, and 24 carries. While at Tulane, he never once received more than 16 carries in a game.

I don't know, I still maintain he was never the best RB on a team at Tulane. Darkwa and Hilliard were both better. He could've gotten more carries here for sure but don't forget that he wasn't in great shape last year
