I’m curious where Redskins fans’ heads are at on this one. Last season, in Week 16, the Eagles were about to run the 15th play of a drive that started at their own 15. It was a quick slant to Evan Moore, which was open. If Moore makes the catch, he’s going to score:
But in typical 2012 Eagles fashion, Moore dropped it:
The Redskins escaped with a 27-20 win.
Let’s say just for fun that Moore makes the catch, and with nothing to lose, the Eagles go for two against a tired defense, get it, and win. The Giants beat the Ravens, the Redskins don’t win the division, they don’t go to the playoffs, and fans of the Eagles, Cowboys, and Giants continue to bust on the Skins for being the division losers of the last two decades.
The wildcard game disaster against the Seahawks never happens. Richard Sherman never pisses off Skins fans far and wide, and most importantly, RG3 never tears his ACL.
So which outcome, after the fact, would you prefer?
