Smoot Lays The Smack Down (Week 2)
 
Well it should go to a lot of you here for writing off Campbell, Zorn and the Redskins after week one. But that's ok, I ain't mad at ya.

Ok, here goes

[B]Special Teams[/B] Of course, I'm talking about Randle El and Brooks. Listen, Antwaan we all know you're not getting paid the big bucks to be our #1 receiver. You're getting paid because you've shown you can be a playmaker and quite simply most of those have to come from your role as a punt returner. You're making big plays...but for the wrong team. Earn that money. Durant, I know you're only a rookie. But you were drafted, and punters don't usually get drafted. So the expectations are higher. Maybe you think it's not fair, but you earned it with your play in college. Now deal with it and prove that it was worth it to draft you.

[B]3rd Down Offense[/B] 3/13 in Week One. 3/11 this week. That simply has to improve.

[B]Santana Moss[/B] Wait, what? Santana Moss? But he just had a huge game. I know. Now bring it again next week, and the week after, and the week after. When you're good, you're very good. In fact, you're one of the best. So bring it every week.

Brooks play was a swing of 10 points (horrible hold loses 3 and terrible punt is returned for a TD). Add to it his other bad punt and I'm hoping it is his worst day as a pro, ever.

What about the special teams for giving up the TD, I mean Brooks f'ed up, but they needed to stop Bush too.

[B]3rd down offense.[/B] See SS's post.

[B]Red zone offense.[/B] In the first half, the Redskins offense possessed the ball five times and drove the ball into the red zone four times, but only managed to rack up 9 points on 3 field goals. Failing to come away with at least 1 TD in one of those 4 red zone drives was maddening.

I hope Zorn use our big targets more often in the red zone. Allow Moss and ARE to stretch the field and, after we've run out of room (i.e., in the red zone) get our tall and talented youngsters in there (i.e., Cooley, Davis, and Kelly).

[B]The fans[/B]. I was watching the game at a bar, so I couldn't hear the crowd noise, but it looked like 20% of the seats in the stadium were empty. People who have tickets, but don't show up to the season home opener should have their seats confiscated.

Good call on the red zone offense. I meant to add that one

I was at the game. You are correct. The seats were empty! everyone was out on the outer part of the stadium. I was pissed at first seeing everyone in the shade not at thier seats.,,, but afterwards I felt bad. I saw 3-4 people get cpr (no bullshit) there was a ton of heatstroke going on.

Brooks' punt on the Bush TD was a low liner. Special Teams really didn't stand a chance to get Bush in the open field like that, with virtually no time to get down the field and surround him.

Clock Management and Personnel Issues in the 1st half. Using all 3 times out before the end of the 1st quarter, including 1 on defense is inexcusable. I also think the 2 offensive TOs had a hand in killing some of the scoring momentum, settling for FG attempts instead of TDs.

Yeah I mean really, I was thinking the same thing...but there was some serious issues there yesterday in that regard...so if people didnt show up/sit down due to the heat...I really can't blame them because it was absolutley BRUTAL... I was pretty dehydtrated myself after the game and didnt feel too good last night...I think that had alot to do with it, as it was really really draining.

WE need to come together as a redskins nation again...rise up and dominate the way it used to be. WE need to give our unwavering support and homefield advantage.

Yeah, I got borderline sun poisoning yesterday, and I even considered leaving when Campbell got sacked inside their own five yard line yesterday, but there was no way I was leaving when he hit Cooley for 24 yards on third down.

I wasn't at this game but have been at games in the past in extreme heat. I understand not wanting to let people bring in drinks but would it really break Snyder to allow people to bring in coolers and have them filled w/ tap water and ice for a buck? No, he wouldn't make much on it but it would be nice to see a full stadium and not just a full parking lot.

Would that count as a smackdown on Snyder?

I was at the game yesterday and I can understand some fans not showing up. It was absolutely brutal out there like Gmanc said and at one point in the second quarter when the fans were being extremely loud while we were on defense my headache increased and I felt a huge wave of dizziness and for like a second my eyesight was gone and I had no clue what was happening, then when it went quiet I was able to regain focus again (go figure, I drank like one bottle of water before that), but after that I shelled out about 30 bucks worth for bottled water and soda. I used two bottles of water just to pour on my head cuz I was sweating like a mofo. I had no clue it was gonna be that hot, I mean I wore shorts and I had on a white t-shirt underneath my authentic Cooley jersey in white but I was still extremely hot, I got sunburned up and down my arms/hands too.

Maybe should have stayed home and used the money for car repairs. Who knows???

What's up with hearing Deuuuuuuuce when McCallister gets the ball? Maybe people were booing the handoff (I doubt it) but that's inexcusable. How many N.O. fans were there?
