The Washington Redskins, spurned by the Peyton Manning camp, have struck a deal with the St.Louis Rams to acquire the second overall selection in next month's NFL Draft.

With that selection, they are expected to take the Heisman Trophy winner, QB Robert Griffin III of Baylor. Griffin will give the Redskins - who defeated the Super Bowl champion Giants twice in 2011 - instant credibility and makes them contenders in the NFC East again.

In return for the Rams' selection, Washington will fork over their first and second round picks this year (No. 6 overall), and their first round selections in 2013 and 2014.

Rumors have surfaced that former

Giants' DC Steve Spagnuolo may be returning to Philadelphia after he is dismissed as head coach of the St. Louis Rams next week.

Spags would assume the DC job currently being occupied by Juan Castillo, who would likely be moved back to the offensive staff.

Considering how the Giants looked against the Redskins last week, and how tumultuous the preseason was, the Giants will take a victory any way they can get it.

In the Giants 28-16 win over the St. Louis on Monday night, things didn?t always look oh so pretty (Rams had 367 total yards to the Giants 300), but who wouldn?t take a double-digit win (heck, any win) these days?

So, the Giants got their must-win victory. Now on to the good, the bad and the ugly.

It's enough the Giant fans and bloggers slam Eli Manning. We're allowed. But when other teams' fans and bloggers do it, then it gets a little personal.

We know Eli isn't perfect...apparently, so does everyone else...

This is from DJ Gelner of InsideStl.com, who previewed the Giants for the upcoming game with the Rams. In all fairness, Gelner does point out Eli's upside after dressing him down a bit:

1. Carnell Williams

The Rams will likely be without Steven Jackson, the franchise's best player for the past half decade, but Carnell showed that he is healthy and more than capable against the Eagles. Williams displayed the talent that garnered him the nickname "Cadillac," rushing for 91 yards on 19 carries and catching six balls for 49 yards. He's not nearly as explosive as Jackson, but with all of the Rams' injuries, he may very well be the focal point of their offense.

With five weeks remaining in the regular season, eleven of the sixteen NFC teams are still mathematically in the playoff hunt.

That includes three sub-.500 NFC West teams (St.Louis, Seattle and San Francisco) and the 5-6 Washington Redskins. The Redskins' chances are slim since they would have to win every game the rest of the season and hope for some divine intervention along the way to qualify for the post season.

The West winner will most likely be the only entrant into the NFC Playoffs from that bracket, so we will not include them in any of our league-wide scenarios going forward unless something dramatic occurs.

The Giants look to extend their streak of 11 straight road wins last season into this one, as they head to St. Louis to take on the Rams. In the New York Times, coach Tom Coughlin talks about why the Giants have been so successful on the road.

?The thing we rally around on the road is the fact that it?s us against them and the only support comes from our sideline and our group,? Coughlin said. ?To win on the road, you?ve got to be able to handle adversity. You have to have the resiliency to battle back.?
The current N.F.L. record for consecutive regular season road victories is 18, set by the San Francisco 49ers from 1988 to 1990.

Big Blue View points us to two articles in St. Louis Post-Dispatch that were very critical, and rightfully so, of the Rams opener where they were dismantled to the tune of 38-3 by Donovan McNabb and the Philadelphia Eagles.

One article, written by Bernie Miklasz went so far as to ask if the players were trying to get their coach fired.

Unless the Rams respond with a passionate statement about their competitiveness on Sunday when the New York Giants come to The Ed, how much longer will head coach Scott Linehan be able to keep his job?
So there it is folks, the Rams are essentially playing to keep their coaches job. The Rams look awful but they should come out swinging after taking a walloping from the Eagles. They may look bad on paper but the Giants should be prepared to play a team that is looking to redeem themselves from outright embarrassment.
