Galah should have caught that one

Yea, I shoulda, took me by surprise, thought it was going to land in the seat and I could have gone after it but it bounced right off the top of the glass

The Nats forgot to show the count of Ks when the Stros stole first on that passed ball tonight.

Mediocre, not awful.

Mark Rypien, Doug Williams.

Won Super Bowls... Rexy, not so much. Both were one year wonders never again coming close to those two seasons.

Not to derail the HRod argument but Grossman makes those two look like Tom Brady. 

Career completion %:
Williams - 49.5
Rypien - 56.1
Rexy - 54.2

All three terrible, all three played in SBs and two actually won them.

Oh, and to make this Nats-relevant, maybe...the Nats and the Redskins used to play a touch football game just at the end of the baseball regular season. Each team in their home uniform, hats and helmets. Today's kids have a Presidents' Race...we had Chuck Stobbs at QB. (maybe Stobbs...I can't remember...)

I would pay money to see that
