Ah, got it .. because if 2. Nxg5, then ... Rf7 ruins the mate, whereas if 3. Nxg5, then the queen is already on g6, and ... Rf7 can just be captured for mate. Oh well, these things happen before coffee. :)
I was typing my response but I saw you posted the answer to your question =)

Hi! Guys'n'Pies! Very Simple and Strightforward Rapidly Solved at Once! Like a lightning! Chiao! Everyone.
Easy; almost steped out at move 2.
I missed the 2nd move! It's so sad :(
good line opening!
Had a few stumbles, but I got through it with relative ease. Nice puzzle!
I guess I am missing something. Wouldn't 2. Nxg5, Rf7 lead to 3. Qg6+ Kf8 ( 3... Kh8 4. Nxf7# ) 4. Qxf7#.
I am still not seeing why the knight and queen move could not be interchanged. Sure it is not forcing via check but still leads to mate in 5.
edit: removed yellow bar and links
...............................that was to hard .............................but cool
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!! way do you say that
3 ... Rg7 is the problem.
