A 14-0 Halftime Deficit

Jim Zorn waited way too long to go to the screen game to diffuse the pass pressure, getting some big gains in the last drive. But he lacks the personnel up front and on the edges to win third down most of the time against this defense, and it's crippling him.

The Redskins defense is playing a lot of Cover-3 and Cover-1 and mixing it up, and is putting a lot of bodies in the box on running downs and daring Ravens quarterback joe Flacco to beat them. The kid has looked awful tonight, sailing balls, out of sync, and the thus we have a defensive battle.

our offensive line is the biggest liability. Our D line sucks balls too, but our D is STILL a top 3 defense DESPITE that crappy D line.

If you think our D is the worst part of this team, you really do NOT know anything at all about football and maybe sports in general. I don't know what you're watching right now, but the D is not the weakest link on this team.

Obvious tackling of Skins DB Green down to the ground on Ravens gadget play "first down".

Huge, HUGE, disparity in close calls and penalty yardage all in favor of the Ravens. Santana never was shown offsides. The ground clearly caused the fumble on Portis. Sick of Super Geezer Madden, Joe Flacco's fist car bought by the Redskins huh?

Sick of AL Michaels Geezer recap of Zorn. We know the story by now right loser? He was originally going to be the OC and then was made HC, you told us and the National audience three times already counting pre-season.

SIck of Madden jumping all over Zorn, ridiculing the skins offense, but in love with Portis, who has been fumbling and whining and dropping balls and NOT seeing cut back lanes.

5 TCCL's for Sellars when he whiffed on both blockers leading to the sack.

10 TCCL's for the lack of pressure on the QB by Jason Taylor. He's realy selling out out there...NOT!

Did the 'Skins score their td last week in the 1st or 2nd quarter?

It's been either 5 or 6 quarters without any points put on the board. Talk about pathetic.

Also, why do football teams wait until the fourth quarter to be urgent? The Skins needed three scores but pretty much took their sweet time in gaining about four yards over the course of 4 minutes.

Thanks to the defense anyway, at least they're playing tough you can't stick this one on them (though a pass rush would be fine).

No need to even look at the draft b/c I am sure the FO will find a way to justify drafting a 3rd TE in the 1st round again.
Meanwhile, the DL is the most ready part of the team. The defense is good and had they drafted one or two DE or LB in the past few years, instead of paying these oldies on their last legs, the DL could have been the BEST in the NFL by now.
Again, I seem to remember the days when the Skins would win with Defense only. You could always count on Charles Mann, Dexter Manley, to get a timely sack or enough pass rush for the opposing QB to throw the interception to Green.
As it is now, this defense is good but if you give any bozos at QB that much time to throw, eventually someone will get open.

So true my friend. The reality is as long as it remains the Snyder era, the core issues of this team will never change. We have been talking about the same issues ever since Snyder took ownership of this team.
Even if Snyder and his cousin were to actually address those issues during this off season, this team is still a good few years away from being a contender.
Meanwhile teams like the Atlanta who was not supposed to be that good after the whole Vick situation, and Baltimore with a rookie coach and QB are heading to the playoffs.
