Final Thoughts on Redskins-Cowboys

Figured I'd close the book on Dallas week with this post, and we'll start digging into the Eagles tomorrow.

The Redskins have completely negated running back Marion Barber in their two games against him. The Cowboys have not made him a big enough part of the game plan - and have abandoned the run for the most part - but still the numbers are crazy.

Barber has six carries for -6 yards in the final regular-season game in 2007. And Barber had eight carries for 26 yards yesterday. That's 14 rushes for 20 yards over two games. The Skins try to be as physical with him as possible, "hunting his legs" in their vernacular, and he has not gotten into any sort of rhythm against them.

One play from the game stood out for me: Third-and-4 from the Dallas 45, game tied at 7 in the second quarter. The Cowboys had been hitting Jason Campbell a lot early and brought a big blitz. The Skins were in an I formation, and he read it well, found Chris Cooley and hit him for a nine-yard gain. DeMarcus Ware was offsides on the play, but the Skins took the play, not the penalty. Great snapshot of the way Jason is playing and reading the game.

Finally, my man Larry in Brooklyn emailed to inform me the Skins' QBs have not thrown an INT in eight regular-season games dating back to last season.

+++I knew it....Corkczar gets on here and raves about how great the Skins are. And tries to say people like him are the REAL fans, that's a joke! A fan has faith in his team ALL OF THE TIME, not just after a win. 4-12 if they are lucky....and bashing any Skins fan who actually had the nerve to believe this team was capable of being .500 or better.

Posted by: RobInVaBeach | September 29, 2008 3:41 PM+++

Actually, Rob, that’s not a fan, that’s a symptom of psychosis. It also pretty much sums up the way things worked in Germany under the Fuehrer. You were not a “real fan” of the Reich unless “you had faith in Herr Hitler ALL OF THE TIME.”

I have no doubt the Ayatollah would welcome you to his Mosque in Iran, where they also don’t tolerate any independent thinking.
See petty dictators, and the small-minded do NOT allow any room for argument because of the total lack of faith they have in themselves, and their inability to determine shades of grey.

They are unable to argue coherently, so they must default back to the same tired talking points again and again, and he occasional "Shove it!"

See, a rational mind roots for his team all the time—like we both do. But where I differ from you, thankfully, is I can see flaws in the system. It doesn’t limit my enjoyment of victories.

And, because this is a discussion board, I think it’s fun discussing strengths and weaknesses. While I cheerfully admit I’ve been wrong many times in the past, I believe some of my early thoughts have shown to be true. Zorn looks like the “next great NFL” coach, Evans is better against the run than Taylor, the Redskins are a very good team when healthy, and Vinny Cerrato has a gift for selecting low rounders, but apparently remains quit deficient in the high rounds.

Now that they have electricity in Va beach, hope to hear from you some more.

just to touch on the Gibbs discussion from the last thread..

I'd have loved to see Snyder give Cabanna Boy the boot and pay Gibbs $6-8 million/yr to stay on in the front office a la Parcells in Miami. Sadly, we all know that Vinny's got major blackmail material on Danny and/or his wife and will never fire the guy. I'd say while certain aspects of the game did seem to have passed Gibbs by, he still knows personnel and is an excellent executive...maybe soeday he'l return in that capacity but I don't know, dude's pushing 70. Last year must've just drained him, and understandably so.

We do owe him a lot of gratitude, not just for the 3 Super Bowls but indeed being the architect of what looks to be a solid young group of "core Redskins" - JC, Landry, Carlos, Rocky, Cooley - plus a few vets like CP, Santana, London that hold this team together. Well done, Coach. I know we're particularly giddy and optimisitc after yesterday but the present and immediate future really do look rather bright.

Over/under on weeks before a full T.O. core meltdown? If the Bengals could somehow beat them, it'll be next week. More realistically I say it's the following week in Arizona.

Gibbs is done with football. Time to look forward. I'll freely admit to applauding the Zorn as OC hire, but being completely baffled and critical of the Zorn as HC hire. He is quickly winning me over. Obviously, the wins are one thing, but I love the enthusiasm on the sidelines.

I haven't been to a 'Skins game this year...for those who have, does Zorn still warm up throwing the ball around pre-game? Like I've said before, it was always my favorite thing to watch at the Seahawks pre-games. Once a QB, always a QB...the guy could still throw.

Would love to know what the leadership dynamics are between Zorn and Blache. Similar to St. Joe and Richie Petitbon? Zorn seems like someone who listens more than he talks, which generally translates into a leader who subjugates his ego for the greater good (which, needless to say, generally translates into success).

We need to get Bobby Beatherd out of retirement. What's he up to these days?

Posted by: Notorious_LMG | September 29, 2008 6:53 PM | Report abuse

In the Saints game, the Skins kept it close by giving up about 17 points on special teams (Bush TD, ARE fumble, botched hold by Brooks, poor punting)

In AZ, a long TD pass was called back that would have put us up 14 in the 4th.

In dallas, we had a TD called back twice (the same possession) which cost of 4 points.

In each of the last 3 games, we've had points that we have given away. What it says to me, this team is stronger than the scores appear.

Just to repeat:
AZ, dal, nyg, NO vs the Skins
1-3

AZ, dal, nyg, NO vs all the other teams they've played so far
10-2


Skins have played a very tough opening schedule -- perhaps even tougher than most expected, and been very successful. What happened in ny was an anomaly. What has happened since is the new bar for expectations.

@Notorious_LMG

Your shot at Vinny just drives me crazy. What has he done to you? It's one thing to be ticked off at Snyder over the way he has handled pricing and other business aspects or whatever, but as even JaLaC the supreme hater pointed out, Cerrato hasn't been the "One Guy responsible", but now he is, so let's judge him on what the team is doing now. Early returns are pretty good, Gibbs didn't handle this years free agency or draft, and Gibbs didn't hire Zorn.

I think Gibbs taught Snyder and Cerrato a lot, how to lead and what type of people to look for (players and executives/personnell guys), let's hope they both learned the lesson WELL, and not just short term.

And no, I'm not Cerrato or Snyder in desguise, or "on the payroll" or any other a$$wipe comment that so many want to make when defends the Skins' FO, I'm just realistic.

NFL SUSPENDS ERIC SMITH FOR BOLDIN HIT
Posted by Mike Florio on September 29, 2008, 7:18 p.m. EDT
Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that the NFL has suspended Jets defensive back Eric Smith for one game, and also has imposed on him a $50,000 fine, for the hit that knocked out Cardinals receiver Anquan Boldin on Sunday.

The league determined that Smith launched himself into Boldin, and struck Boldin in the helmet, with Smith’s helmet.

At a base salary of $445,000, the suspension will cost Smith $26,176, making the total price tag $76,176. That’s roughly the equivalent of three game checks for Smith.

Boldin looked to be seriously injured immediately after the hit. But he is expected to be OK.

Guess over the past 5 years this idiot forgot how big a failure he was at the pro level. He is one of the last people who should be giving any advice on how to run an offense.

Steve Spurrier failed as an NFL coach, but it didn't stop him from offering advice to the Titans on the best way to use Vince Young. Courtesy of The Tennessean:

Spurrier wondered why the Titans haven't implemented some of that spread option with Vince Young.

"I've sorta always thought the Titans ought to let Vince Young run that offense,'' Spurrier said. "That's what he did in college. They say he's going to get hit too much and knocked out of the game, but that's what he does best, is run and throw, and not be a drop-back passer.''

I would like to report abuse (being that it is a new feature to RI 2.1).

Jason Campbell is abusing NFL defenses.

Awesome.

Ok, now that I've got a couple of weeks of this fantasy shabingus under my belt [in the first and decidedly superior league]... this is "rediculous"! All my good players were on bye week this week, so I'm filling in with all of the justaguys on my bench.
Except I put up about 40 points more than I ever have before, and apparently beat someone who managed to put up ~124 points -- 20 more than anyone else in the league. I mean, WTF? I feel like the secretary who wins the NCAA office pool by voting for the "ones with the purple shirts, 'cause purple's my favorite color".

We get the Steelers on MNF in five weeks... not to be looking ahead or nothin', but after this Sunday (very dangerous game) all the remaining games on the Skins' schedule that looked like question marks as recently as Sunday morning now don't seem like question marks... ride the wave, baby!

Mistakes were made.

Someone at the Post, said: I wish Brooks could get a little more hang time for the Snyder's Redskins.

A guy named Shnooks from IT was listening in and thought they said: "I wish Shnooks could add a little hang time on Redskins Insider.

So here we are.

I'm sure there's a bittorrent around somewhere, but that's not my particular area of expertise.
Lisa had posted that NFLN will be replaying the game tomorrow.

Get ready for a quadruple-post. @#$%@#$%able type!

So, the real deal is this.

Whether we win or lose to Philadelphia, how insane will our next home game be against a NFC East team?

Which will be Dallas on 16 November.

Sumped -- What a great laugh to start the day! If only it were that easy. With WaPo's IT department, if Shnooks had set out to increase the hang time, he would have decreased it so much that our posts would appear 15 minutes before we typed them.

Good one, daggar. This is how SMACK is leading the pack in Kost's Tipping competition. From now on, I'm just picking the Maroom and Blacks.

This 10 minute posting time sucks Cindy light a fire under someone's a$$ over there and get this fixed, or if you've got 100,000 a year, I will come work for the post and show your IT people how to do there job.

Costly win for the Steelers last night, Mendenhall, and one of their guards went down the the year. OUCH.

I think more than the Cowboys, the Eagles with their blitz packages will provide a bigger test for this team. They're going to give JCamp a much different look than what he's seen so far this year.

Mendenhall wasn't much of a loss. He's done nothing this year. He's as big a bust as our second rounders have been so far this year. "My foot hurts. I can't run. I don't know the offense." Man, it's starting to get old.

The blitzes will be tough, but I'm counting on Zorn to put Jason in a position to beat the blitz. Live by the blitz, die by the blitz. Jason's going to see something new, but so are the Eagles.
