Redskins Trail by 3 after 1

The Redskins opened the season on defense, and last year's fourth-ranked unit bent but didn't break in its first regular-season action.

Eli Manning drove the Giants all the way to the Redskins' 11-yard line, with the biggest plays a 25-yard completion to Mario Manningham on third-and-77 and an 11-yard pass to Kevin Boss on the Redskins 31-yard line.

But facing second and 2 and then third and 1 from the 12- and 11-yard line, the Redskins buckled down and forced New York to settle for a 28-yard field goal.
Offensively, the Redskins started with a big play - a 34-yard run from running back Clinton Portis - but immediately followed that with an 11-yard loss on a reverse wide receiver option with Antwaan Randle El. That play all but snuffed out any momentum from Portis' run, and the Redskins punted.

The Giants again drove within Redskins territory on their next drive, with big runs from Ahmad Bradshaw (22 yards) and Brandon Jacobs (15 yards) back to back, bolstered by a late hit penalty on Landry.

But the Redskins defense buckled down and the quarter ended with Jacobs getting stuffed on third and 1 from the 3-yard line.

Players of note from the first quarter had to be middle linebacker London Fletcher, who made several big tackles, and Portis, who turned in the big run.

Zorn's playcalling is atrocious. He's showing absolutely no confidence in his Oline or QB. He's giving the Giants D line way too much respect. THROW the ball idiot!! And after a big run by Portis, set it up for play action and let Campbell wing it.

Posted by: dealer1 | September 13, 2009 4:58 PM | Report abuse

Big story so far: three straight CP runs on that "drive" starting at our one.

The upshot: JZ shows, in the first game of the season, total lack of trust and respect for JC.

This does not bode well.

This is why you can't have corners 10 yards off the ball all the time, especially ones who apparently can't tackle.

Not sure what the play calling was all about on the Skins second drive. Three runs? Give me a break. Trust your QB.

The pressure Haynesworth creates won't mean a thing if the Skins don't have an end who can actually take advantage of a one-on-one match up and get to the opposing QB.

Sad display thus far.

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!

It's embarrassing because too much of what is happening is poor effort/bad judgment.

For example, DeAngelo Hall's Deion-like attempt at the tackle on Manningham should elicit a verbal beat-down from either his position coach and/or his fellow defensive players.

Looks a lot like last year, so far. D looks pretty stout, but falters on 3rd down.

Terrible non-tackling.

Good effort by Carter and Alexander for the fumble. A turning point? We can only hope.

'Skins O needs to keep the ball a while, score and gove the D some rest.

Zorn should be fired right now...forget end of season.

Release campbell. Thank god Redskins didn't sign him to a long term contract. He will be out of the league next year. No team will pick him up.

1/2 of the first game and you can already tell Redskins will finish last in NFC east. Zorn's offense makes Gibbs/Saunders offense looks explosive.

if you don't have a competent QB or a offensive coordinator, that offense is not going anywhere. Now we all know why Zorn was never a coordinator.

Ok they need to spread the field and throw often. JC needs to speed up his clock , and the D needs to tackle better. Not an impossible task.

I'd be happy if the O stopped giving up TD's and scored one for a change. . .

Gadget plays will only last so long...Our 100m man looked pretty ordinary and with our defense on the field 95% of the time, he will not last long.

Well, we're only down one point worse than last year. It ain't over yet.

Can somemone please explain to me why you can automatically assume that when a QB does well with another team, that he'd be amazing here too - even though there are different player, coaches, etc. You have NO IDEA what Ryan, Flacco, Sanchez, etc. would do here and seriously, Sanchez had played one game.

If we stop giving enormous cushions on every play, we might show something on defense, being in better position for INTs and tackles. Then we need to better our playcalling - allow our wonderful JC to show us his stuff both good and bad. The vanilla offense will not get it done. At least with JC we have an opportunity for 1st downs.

pss me off.. JC had all off season to learn how to not wind up telegraph his throw..and to improve the speed of his release..
Guess you cant fix slow..

The main issue is the coaching staff was not hand picked by the head coach umm unlike every other team in the NFL, and why has this not been noticed identified managment LOL. Why is it every year we put mucho money into a hand full of players but lack the positions we need depth in? Randle El like 5.9" is average at best and his salery is 4m or so? Please get more talent of the O-line and stop paying avergage players above average pay.

Campbell stinks and we have no one to back him up, it is going to be a looooong season!

Despite all the pre-season good feelins....same old anemic offense..same old poor play calling ...Snyder must be ready for the pipe...SAD ..nothing to look forward to.

What happens when we get a 0-line injury, we get Mike Williams who should be on the show" The Biggest Loser" not a football team lol

Posted by: rb_rivers | September 13, 2009 6:36 PM | Report abuse

I think Campbell is decent but without a good 0-line like the Giants, he is below average. My glass is half empty thus far considering the scoring other teams in our division have done today. Look at the no-name guys on the Giants making plays, Skins look like chumps. Mr.Jerkface Synder how about buying a new owner cuz you suck and tainted the skins tradition from day 1.

Posted by: rb_rivers | September 13, 2009 6:44 PM | Report abuse

Not looking good... on the bright side - no major injuries so we get to see these same disappointing folks again next week!

Hey - we lost to the Giants in the opener last year too and started 6-2. So there is some hope.

Have a great week everyone
