The defense needs to rest

Number of tackles is not an official NFL stat, but according to the league's numbers, LaRon Landry is leading the league in solo tackles with 41. He's second in the NFL in total tackles with 52. Suffice it to say, people around the league are starting to notice the Redskins' fourth-year safety.

But it's possible Landry isn't even leading his own team in tackles.

Across the league, teams compile their own defensive statistics by reviewing film of each game and charting the plays. According to the team's review of coaches' film, Rocky McIntosh is leading the Redskins in tackles through the first five games with 66 -- 29 solo and 37 assisted.

According to the NFL, McIntosh is fourth on the Redskins with 46 total London Fletcher and DeAngelo Hall also have 46 total tackles, according to the league's numbers. But according to the team's numbers, Fletcher has 64 -- also ahead of Landry's 61 -- and Hall has 53.

Regardless of how the numbers shake out, the Redskins might be the league's worst-rated defense (allowing 410.2 yards per game), but they're getting a ton of tackles out of a few key players.

There's a couple of ways to interpret the numbers: A) opponents are breaking through to the linebackers and safeties quite a bit, or B) linebackers and safeties are stopping a lot of small plays from becoming huge plays.

Both could be true. The Redskins have faced more pass attempts (225) and given up more completions (146) than any other team in the league, but their opponents' yards-per-pass play is ranked No. 16, middle of the pack. Overall, opponents are averaging 7.8 yards per touch (rushing and passing).

Only four teams are giving up a higher average, and Washington coaches would definitely like to lower that number.

They'd also like to have their defense face fewer snaps. A lot of plays means a lot of tackles. They'd surely sacrifice some tackle numbers, if it meant the defense was spending more time watching the Washington offense move the ball.

Good morning, all. Repost of something interesting I found re CP's package injury. A lot of posters were skeptical of him not having surgery:

As for CP's injury, I tried to tell y'all that non-operative is the way to go but I thought it would take longer than 4-6 weeks to come back.

I was half right.

According to a survey by The American Journal of Sports Medicine, 19 NFL players had CP's injury from 1992-2004; 14 went non-surgical, 5 went with surgery. Mean recovery for non-surgical was…….6 weeks. Surgery? Try twice that.

"Conclusion: Nonoperative treatment of proximal adductor tendon rupture results in a statistically significantly faster return to play than does operative treatment in athletes competing in the National Football League and avoids the risks associated with surgery while providing an equal likelihood of return to play at the professional level."

http://ajs.sagepub.com/content/37/7/1394.abstract

So they (Shanny) are trying to let him heal on his own to avoid IR, but they're not keeping him around for sentimental reasons, he could conceivably contribute this year.

Booya.

And? No surprise...the skins have faced some of the most pass happy teams in the league through 5 games...and that won't change this week.

Not to take anything away from Landry, but I think it is concerning that a safety is leading the team in tackles. I think you'd like to see a linebacker in the 3-4 have the most tackles. Fletcher and McIntosh have trouble shedding blocks, a trait that separates good from great inside linebackers in the 3-4. Haslett figured this out and is having them back off the LOS. I think their tackle totals will go up.

This defense is a work in progress. They made a key replacement when they put Alexander in Carter's place. I suspect we'll see another tweak or two, with the most obvious being replacing Buchanan. The players still are thinking instead of reacting but there are lots of encouraging signs. If you took away that ugly first quarter against the Packers, I think the D played okay. A lot of players stepped up in that game getting sacks, fumbles, interceptions - the things a good defense does, but there were some blown coverages and missed tackles that need to be corrected.

The defense will get better as the year progresses, but this is not a dominating 3-4 defense. There are components missing. I think Haslett is adjusting his scheme to fit his players. He'd probably like a better nose tackle, better inside backers and another physical corner opposite Rogers. Having said that, there's no reason why this defense can't be in the top half of the league by the end of the season. So far, the defense has been good enough. Just think how much better the Redskins will be when the defense gets better.

Ok let's see we have

Dallas somewhat pass happy
Houston for sure pass happy
St Louis dink and dunk happy
Philadelphia need I say more
Green Bay see Philadelphia
And we all know what Indy and Peyton do

That said isn't the point of playing defense is to tackle the opponent? Plus based on the way Landry is used quite naturally he's going to be in on a lot of them.

For the most part the defense is it's own worst enemy as far as how long and how much they give up better/tighter coverage might help instead of giving 10-15 yard cushions.

But the biggest issue is all the holding the offensive lines have been getting away with, if the officials make the calls that means longer downs and distance less chance of continuing drives and at some point they are going to need to make the calls as it's becoming very obvious by all especially with Orakpo who's held damn near every play.

Dude, that's not news. That's been the team's identity for the better part of a decade--winning with defense. One reason we've had so many head coaches is because the offense has averaged between 14 and 17 points a game in the last 10 years, and Danny wants to score points. So far, this year really doesn't look very different in that respect.

Actually, if your 3-4 defense is working right, they don't have shed blocks very often.

Our D-line isn't what it could be and that's part of the problem. As we go along and get more of the right pieces in place for this defense, the LBs will look a lot better too. In the 3-4, the LBs are only as good as their D-line allows them to be.

But you're right...it's a work in progress and it doesn't look that bad when you consider it's just Week 6.

Excellent analysis.

You're right, in a 3-4, the SS shouldn't leading in tackles.

This defense really needs a stud NT.

And now that the funeral has come and gone, perhaps Albert Haynesworth will return determined to be that stud interior lineman we expected him to be.

What happens next with him will speak volumes to the fortunes of this defense.

It could be concerning that Landry is leading the team in tackles.

It could also signify that Landry is becoming a top 5 safety in the league, if not the best in the NFL when it comes to run and pass support. He'll never have Polumalu's or Reed's ballskills, but he's unmatched physically.

We're 32nd in yards allowed.

But 9th in points allowed.

We're 7th in the league in sacks produced.

We're first in the league in holding penalties drawn (ok, I made that one up).

We're average in turnovers produced, with 8 in five games.

But we're 6th in the league in turnover ratio with +4.

Short story: there is a good amount to like about this defense, and there is much to improve on.

Generally, I agree. But most of that ridiculous yardage got rolled up in the Texans game and this team is getting better every week. Hopefully, we'll see this team surrender less yardage. But with the holes we have, the type of play we see now may be the best we can hope for in 2010.

Rocky has played great as well, we have a lot of high motor players on this D. I think they are right on schedule, they could be better and we could have some better parts. But this D is what i like to see, i could care how mayn yards they give up its all about points. The only thing that yeards equals is amount of time the D has to be on the field from that aspect it is a poor ranking to have. But whatever ill take this in your face D over a bend dont break style everyday.

Haslett's defense can be exploited in the middle mid-range to deep pass. Landry's strength is his strength and not his cover ability (Alvin Walton anyone?) Peyton Manning will carve up this defense between the 20's. HOPEFULLY, he will not hit too many of his beautifully thrown 35-50 yard strikes for TDs. If the D can keep that from happening, and force him to score from the redzone, then I think we will have a good chance. Our D can, and should stiffen in that area. I hope I hope I hope.

Landry is good in coverage as long as he's not asked to cover sideline to sideline as a lone safety.

The key beating Indy's offense is to beat the hell out of their offensive line. Peyton will carve up any defense, but the more you hit him early on, the more flustered he'll get late in the game.

I think this is the type of game you'll see a lot exotic 4-man blitzes. We won't rush more than 4 a lot of the time in order to maximize our men in coverage, but we have to be able to put pressure on Manning. I think that will come via a lot of LB and secondary blitzing.

"They'd surely sacrifice some tackle numbers, if it meant the defense was spending more time watching the Washington offense move the ball."

I love how those who want to defend a bad, or even mediocre, defense like to blame the offense. The defense has the ability to control this to some extent by getting themselves off the field. Stop the other team on third down and you get to take a break.

Could the offense do more to help the team win? Sure! Their third down conversion percentage is terrible. But great defenses play well even when the offense is anemic (see Baltimore for much of the last decade). And this offense is not as bad as many of those Baltimore offenses. Excuses like those that Reid provides here only allow the defense to shift blame for their own shortcomings.

Moe, if you're expecting AH to be a stud NT, you are going to be sorely disappointed. It is not his strength and he doesn't want to do it. As a stud 3-4 DE, he will help take some pressure off of the so-so NTs and improve the Dline against the rush and the pass.

Nice bit of research, but most medical experts will tell you that everyone is different and heals at a different pace. Witness CP26's season-ending concussion last year -- which was initially expected to only keep him out for a week or two. If memory serves, he hung around and hung around (and took up a roster spot) for about six weeks before finally going on the IR list.

If we could be reasonably confident that CP26 will in fact be back from his latest injuries and in playing shape by the end of his 4-6 weeks, we might understand again keeping his roster spot vacant for so long, despite the major need for another running back who can contribute today.

I like what Torain can bring, but think he would be so much better with a little help back there -- and frankly, we haven't seen much yet from any of the others.

How long can the Redskins afford to keep CP26 off the IR list? I suspect it depends on how long that Redskins can continue to rely almost exclusively on a passing game. And frankly, McNabb was already looking pretty gimpy last week... and with no run game, and very little pass blocking to boot, I suspect his days are numbered too.

Posted by: PlayAction | October 13, 2010 11:07 AM | Report abuse

Jim Hazlenutt's recent installation of a 3-4 defense had had an impact on the way opponents play us on offense.

First and foremost, the current defensive personnel is not ideal for this defense but we're moving ahead with it anyway. The D will only get better as appropriate personnel (a true NT as well as DE/LB hybrids) is added. We have to be happy with the play so far this year.

The stats don't mean a damn thing. This is a risk/reward type of defense so the only stats I car about are going to be sacks, turnovers and 3rd downs. Hazlenutt's aggressive blitzing practices are going to leave the D susceptible to their opponents picking up chunks of running or passing yards. With the personnel we have, we're going to be most effective by stunting linemen and LB's and bringing numbers in an effort to own the LOS.

Let me tell you, the Colts D gives up big plays and so do the Patriots. For this style of D, don't look for impressive stats in terms of yards allowed, look for a bend-but-don't-break style that aims more for shutting down 1 or 2 specific key offensive players, avoiding the 'big play' and beats the crap out of people with their safeties and LB's creating turnovers.

Get used to some ugly defensive play at times but this defense is only going to get better with contributions from the likes of Sackpo, Dirty30, Lorenzo, McIntosh, Jarmon and Moore.
