Was it just me or after the first play from scrimmage on offense when Betts got stuffed did Thomas raise his hands as if to say "What the hell play are we running?" Like there was some miscommunication

I'm not worried about the offense really, but the special teams is abysmal.
I watched the game again today and our kickoff coverage on the runback had guys on it that aren't gonna make the team anyways. Nemo, Farris, White were out there. Hell Kary campbell wasn't even out there on that play and he is one of our best Special Teamers. Nor was Sellars

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

Yeah I thought that too regarding our special teams actually. Still I imagine some of those guys that played on special teams yesterday will be on the team.

I take solace in knowing things will be better when The Ade returns

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

Lets hope that they turn it up a notch when the season really begins on September 11 ! The good news is that if Brunell plays well and Campbell improves through practice < maybe some game time > this season , we should be strong at all but backup O - Line and D Line . Vinny , if you read this ,,, draft a pass rusher next year ,,,,, PLEASE

Yeah, I hope a big DE with athleticism is still there when Washington goes on the clock in the first round. Even if Carter plays up to potential, Daniels and Wynn are getting much older.

Maybe we need O-line help more. Thats not a job for the first round though.

We'll trade all our picks away before the draft so don't bank on that.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

Positives for me:

* The Campbell era continues to accelerate (and F his passer rating, Patten short-armed a few and dropped a couple more, that guy should basically be traded now)
* Two words and a profanity: MIKE FSCKING SELLERS. It's *criminal* that nobody has bothered handing off to this guy all this time. Seriously, he was PANCAKING dudes on his way to the first down marker, and you could tell he was loving every minute of it. Ladell and Rock are all fine and good, but for my money I would be making a lot more use of Sellers if I was Saunders. Not to mention, we already know he can catch.
* Mike Rumph didn't look quite so much like a former first round bust last night. Maybe that bitter Niners fan who's always in here whining about Lloyd got it wrong after all, because that guy unloaded pretty nicely on a couple of key plays.
* Randle-El. Nuff said.
* Buck Ortega! Awesome, "Mexican Food meets Porn Star" name, and hey, you can never have too many TE's on your roster, right?

Questions:

* Where's Andre Carter?
* Where's Cooley?
* Where's Robert McCune? He had a great game against Cincy, and seemed like a no-show tonight.
* Which trick play is gonna burn us for a score next week?

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

Positives:
Collins looked good so long as he didn't have time to think. I felt as though he was under more pressure than Campbell and was able to get rid of it VERY quickly. Certainly no comparison to last week.
Thrash after the catch.
The 2nd-string OL and CBs look like they've played college ball (not like last week.)
Some good catches in spite of hard contact.
Sellers. (Is somebody having fun out there?)
Buck Ortega.
The cheerleaders.

Negatives:
Starting D. (They should have it together by now.)
Starting offense. (This could be because they're learning the playbook, so I'm not too concerned.)
Special teams.
All the drops.


Mostly agreeing with prior posts as far as the details.

This is actually a good thing IMO. Between this and his scrambling effort, I feel good about his health thus far. Overthrows in preseason don't scare me, it's the wobbly lame ducks that strike fear into your heart...

Keep that positive attitude 66 that's what we need. When we're winning we're grinning, when we're loosing we're crying. Just a couple weeks ago we were talking SB and even JG suggested everyone bring it down, now after two less than spectacular performances we're all stressed out.....Chill....It's going to be alright.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

A neutral: 23 play drive netting 3.3 yards/play. This is < 10 yds/3 downs. This kind of yardage should kill a drive. Only kept going because they went for it on 4th down (which I don't think would happen in the regular season) and a defensive penalty (if I remember correctly.)

NEGATIVE: I guess they didn't have their 1st-string officiating crew in there. While their decisions were fine, their announcements sounded like they were recruited from the World Cup.
Never have seen any which seemed more clueless.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

I actually think for a weeks worth of work (and granted against no namers) mike rumph looked pretty good. He was hitting hard and all over the place. He may end up being a very valuble nickel corner. He's gotta be as good as Walt Harris, and the guy can hit...

It's hard to judge a team by the preseason, but it seems like Campbell does not get rattled at all. I mean he looks like he's just moseying around dumping balls off completely unaffected by the looming linemen and backers closing in around him... which is a welcome sight.

I think he just needs to learn to make better decisions with his balls (I think we could all make better decisions with our balls) and he'll be a contender.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

Campbell's arm look amazing. I hope he starts for us for his entire career once he gets the chance.

Who knew Sellars could run so well? I tried him out on Madden after the game (against the Colts and Bucs) and he can run on there too!

Randel El looks great AND excited to be a Redskin. He'll be great for us. Does anyone know if he'll be the kick returner? Espy's been returning when I saw and he may not make the team...

Sellers is a textbook physics example! Force = mass x acceleration! At 260 pounds, when he gets up to speed, he's gonna bowl people over! The trick is to get a big head of steam going before he hits anybody...

Randle El will be the punt returner and Betts likely the KR, though while Ladell is starting in place of Clinton (and maybe indefinitely, if they're afraid of Clinton's shoulder flaring up), someone else (Nemo?) will be handling KOR's. They like dudes who can break tackles on kickoff returns, but favor the shiftiness and speed of a guy like Randle El on punt returns.
