Re: Offensive Coordinator

we just need another santana on the other side.a few more good groceries will work thats for sure. all they need to do now is fine tune and free up some money for more players like some bookends on defense.
i like what u,m seeing from this team and besides we did play the #1 defense last saturday didn,t we.

Re: Offensive Coordinator

Matty, I thought that about that play at first too, then they showed another picture and that INT was squarely on Brunell. I simply don't understand why we dont even ATTEMPT to get Jacobs the ball. We average throwing towards him like once a game, if that.

Re: Offensive Coordinator

We may want to revisit this discussion in a week or so. If we win again, hold off until the next week.

The reason the offense sucked against Philly was because Brunell wasn't healthy and didn't get a whole lot of practice in the week before. He didn't admit it after the Philly game (would be a strategic mistake to let the TB defense smell blood), but he's admitted it now. Against TB, he was healthier, but this week, he's completely healthy - I believe the results will show on the field against Seattle.

Our offense has made enormous strides compared to last year. Even outside of Portis' and Moss' stellar stats for the year, we have big play ability, and most importantly, our red zone efficiency (in the second half of the season) is startling. I think the red zone efficiency has been the biggest source of improvement since it directly leads to 7 points. Portis, Sellers, Cooley, and of course Brunell have been key in improving that efficiency.

I would tend to agree with those who say that its not the offensive system that needs to be revamped, but some of the personnel. A solid run blocking left guard, and a fast big man receiver, and we'd be set on offense, I think.

It wasn't squarely on Brunell. Jacobs got out-muscled and out-hustled to the ball. Simple as that. Looking back, yeah, Brunell probably shouldn't have thrown the ball, but as an NFL QB, you expect your WRs to make a play sometimes!

He never gets ANY separation from defenders in games. I don't know what his deal is.

I'm not saying it wasn't a poor decision by Brunell, it was, but it wasn't a great effort on TJ's part either. The defender outplayed him for the ball. Top flight WR's don't let that happen. At the least, TJ needed to play the role of defender in that situation and try to knock the ball away.

Just one thing about this statement.
Aren't we NOW competing for a Championship?

or do the Playoffs have nothing to do with that?

Re: Offensive Coordinator

I just can't figure out why so many people try to second guess what Gibbs does. We have had how may loosing seasons while he was away and its taken him how many years to get us in the playoffs? If I would have ask anyone on this sight that if we were playing in the second week of the playoffs would we have had a succesful season? I bet 99% would have said yes and some would have been happy with a winning season and not making the playoffs. We have achieved more than most would have expected. So lets stop second guessing the coaching, QB, players and the ownership and start applauding our achievments. I for one after Saturdays game will applaud our achievments win or a loss but of course would rather applaud a win.

Skinsguy -- I'd LOVE to see where people wanted to can Williams. Please post a thread.
Oh trust me, there was a thread. In fact, there might have even been more than one.

Re: Offensive Coordinator

Here's one that gets on GW pretty good, I'm sure there are more. Perhaps TAFKAS who is our resident archivist can dig up some more.

As for Jacobs, I've had his back for quite a while now but I'm on the edge with him now. I really didn't like the way he went after the ball on that INT last week, a very weak effort if you ask me. Coaches have said he's amazing in practice but he hasn't been able to translate that to the game for whatever reason. He couldn't even hold the job over Thrash. I don't think it's looking very good for him headed into the offseason.
I have thought all weak that TJ did a terrible job on that interception last week but I didn't want to start a negative thread after a win. He MUST break up that interception. That was a completely weak attempt on that ball. Now Brunell should not have thrown it, but sometimes QB's make mistakes and it is up to the WR to play DB on some passes. TJ should have tackled that DB if necessary.

TREMENDOUS POST!!!! Totally on the mark. I think many people on this site cannot understand all the second guessing BS. Particularly in light of the INCREDIBLE turnaround this season!

Yeah, that's the one I found as well. The point is, alot of Redskins fans have gotten so bitchy, that they can't appreciate us being in the playoffs. They can't appreciate the fact that we've actually advanced in the playoffs. Last year, I remember people who dumped on Joe Gibbs said "I'll give him three years to turn things around." He's done it in two seasons! Very few of us expect the Redskins to even make the playoffs this year. Here is a history lesson for ya: Joe's offenses in the past were never the type that would score 40+ points in each and every game. The 1991 season was probably the closest that he came to having an "Indy" type of offense. And just remember....back then we had 3 outstanding receivers on our team who were difference makers. This season, we've had only one guy like that. For us to have games where we've put up 30+ points with only one true deep threat has been outstanding.

I guess it's just the Snyder mentality that some Redskins fans are going to have to out grow.

Re: Offensive Coordinator

Joe NEVER said he would have an instant turnaround that would succeed, then dismantle, and start over. That is a stupid plan for anyone (however popular it might be) with a low success probability. He DID say he would return the Redskins (by the end of his tenure) to a competative, proud team in the REDSKIN TRADITION that fans could be proud of for years to come. Good plan.................he is ahead of schedule

In Jacobs defense, Brunell never throws to him so he was probably the most surprised person in all of Florida when he saw Brunell throw across the grain. And noone is ever going to confuse Taylor for a top flight WR.
