Of course not - you have no blitzing that I can see, an you give receivers 10+ yards of cushion every play. Not to mention you can't even tackle a guy when you have a chance IN THE FIELD OF PLAY, stupidarse landry.

Posted by: cocodc1 | September 13, 2009 4:39 PM | Report abuse

Landry looks bad already today. I'm a little concerned about the effectiveness of this defense, and I think we saw some of it during the preseason.

The busted play with ARE certainly annoyed me because there's no reason to run it. But it was the play calling after that that really bothered me. The coaches gave up on that drive with a draw and a screen to Cooley.

Yeah, ARE has to ger rid of that ball, but my thing is, why call it in the first place?

Posted by: RedDMV | September 13, 2009 4:53 PM |

I think the upside is a big play. The downside should have been that ARE throws it away out of bounds.

One big reason the Skins have not been very good is stupid plays that really hurt them. Here are some of the dumb-arse plays that have hurt us so far:

Randle-El gets tackled for a 20+ yard loss instead of throwing the ball away. Kills the drive after great run by CP.

Landry late hit out of bounds.

Another one I can't remember cause the margaritas starting to hit.

Now if they could only fix the pass rush.

I get that their o-line is great but this is killing me, no overage or pass russ to speak of. . .

No OC. Still rook coach.

Defense not bad, not great, but not bad considering no offense

If we keep playing like this, giving up 3rd and longs, leaving wide recievers so open. that guy dropped it because he couldn't believe he was so wide open.

Looks like it will be either 6-0 or 10-0 NYG.

Redskins corners:

3rd and 5 and they will give a 10 yard cushion....WTF

Posted by: pennstate1 | September 13, 2009 4:58 PM | Report abuse

tru, rickyroge, but in that spot, in this point in the game. Why not just call a simple pass play...

Or.. lol... give it to Betts.

Posted by: RedDMV | September 13, 2009 4:58 PM | Report abuse

our offense is seriously offensive, it's embarrasing.

Posted by: rachel216 | September 13, 2009 4:59 PM | Report abuse

Yep. I was right and they gave that play away to them. This is going to be a long afternoon. Go get Pepoto and the other antacids.

Posted by: jiacinto | September 13, 2009 5:00 PM | Report abuse

10-0 NY
scrw the fire..get open for a friggn pass..
Looks like the same D-Coord formula that took the Skins to 2-6 the last 8 games of last year... Double Moss, stack Portis and block down cooley at the line.
Zorn had the whole offseason to solve this..

If Skins are down 17-0 by half.. Zorn should shake it up by putting in Collins who went 20 yards per completion against the Giants secondary a year and half ago in the last Skins victory against the Gints.
+++++++++++++++++++


I like Moss' fire!

Nice Tackling secondary!!!!!

Posted by: childrenofthezorn | September 13, 2009 5:01 PM | Report abuse

Indeed, y'all the cushion is a MAJOR concern...

WTF kind of tackling was that???

Cushion, people... cushion.

If they can put 3 on the board on the next drive... I'll still have major confidence in dem 'skins.

4th best defense in the league right there. . . only better!

Posted by: whughes1 | September 13, 2009 5:01 PM | Report abuse

ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE THIS TEAM: SOFT, SOFT, SOFT, SOFT. smoot is soft, landry soft, jc soft, jim zorn soft, randle el soft. this whole team is soft and lacks heart. smoot NEEDS to go, he's funny but HE FREAKIN sucks!!!!

It'll be a miracle if we win somehow. 3-0 seemed hard, now 10-0 is impossible

Our O-Line can't block very well but we made of for it by not tackling....SOFT....SOFT....SOFT

Half-time:

Let's see. I said special teams and the o-line would determine the game. Chaulk up seven for the teams, and the o-line has performed very well. So why are our heroes down by 10?

1- That #1 draft pick for next year hasn't been put in the defensive backfield, namely CB. I knew 'LOS would not play and that HALL and SMOOT would let us down.

2- Too much time and an unawareness of onrushing linemen. CAMPBELL puts the ball on the ground instead of moving in the pocket. The day of the statuesque q-back is gone. I am right there with SNYDER and CERRATO - now. I see what they were driving at. I was willing to give JASON the benefit of the doubt, but he's asking the o-line to hold out d-lineman too long. Decisions, decisions, decisions, made too slow. And I don't think it will improve much.

3- Coaching. Keep going to the well until you get burned. Where's the back-up when ARE and COOLEY are covered? Where's KELLY or MITCHELL? Lets put some pressure on those d-backs with some striders with height like the G-men are doing to our CB's.
