The Special Teams Problem
 
Good article at Sports on Earth yesterday, trying to put context around how bad the Redskins Special Teams actually are.

They probably aren't going to cost this roster a playoff berth, but I think independent of special teams, this is an 8-8 roster. It's a 5 or 6 win roster after factoring in having to overcome a huge weakness to start or end every drive.

It will take a year or two to get the special teams units on track again, but this does appear to be rock bottom. I don't think we'll have to worry about the problem getting worse next year.

ST sucks but so does D and hell even O sometimes. It's a 3 phase shit right now

There are no shining beacons of hope...but the defense has played a really, really tough schedule. No, the Vikings aren't a tough opponent. They just crapped the bed last Thursday.

8-8 isn't where we want or need to be, but it's at least where we would be if the Special Teams units weren't collapsing under their own weight.

I've been watching it all year, it's flat out horrible

After watching Sav shank a 15yd punt, I realized it can only get better for the team next year.
I think it is time to make plans for 2014 FAgency.
Rak, Baker, moss, Riley, doughty, Jackson are guys I hope can resign cheap or walk b/c we have upgraded.
I feel like the $36 million in cap will be spent fast with all the needs we have. WR, RT, G, DE, MLB, CB, FS, SS.
I've sort of lost confidence in Shanny's drafts but perhaps Thomas will come back strong next year. For the love of god, get LeRibeus on the subway diet or something.

Thanks for posting that...I too agree that the Special Teams are the biggest problem for the Redskins.

The Defense is the other major problem. Of course when the Offense goes into it shell, that does not help either.

Nick Williams.

Alexander really held this unit together. I didn't think we'd miss him as much as we do. I don't think the coverage would be nearly as bad if he was still here.

I love that man. I thought he played really good in pre-season but was he a returner in college? The coaches must not have confidence in him if he's just festering on the practice squad.

Yes not to be offensive, because some will be offended, but the Redskins have an Offensive Team, a Defensive Team and a Special Needs Team.

This problem lies on GM Mike S. It is hard for him to make roster moves and focus on game planning for the next weeks opponent. The move to sign Chris Rainey should have been made months ago. Sav has been inconsistent at best and the Perry Riley should not be on special teams anymore.

Nick Williams was an outstanding PR/KR in college. I hope they didn't bring him up just to see him sit on the bench.
