Let's talk defense

Alright the offense is a problem, but is anyone else concerned about the D too?

Dumb penalties.

Shoddy tackling.

Missed opportunities (Rogers dropping an easy INT)

Too many big plays given up.

Missing Springs hurts. But that doesn't excuse the mental errors and overall sloppiness we've seen the past 2 weeks. This is a unit that returned the majority of the starters. Same system for the 3rd year in a row.

So what's the problem??

Re: Let's talk defense

Is the line healthy? That's my first thought.

Re: Let's talk defense

I was watching the game yesterday and someone uttered, "damn the redskins d sucks". I said that was the first time in 2 years i had heard that. That hurt.

WTF is up with our boy GW? Our 3rd down defense is beyond atrocious

Re: Let's talk defense

I heard that we signed a pass rusher named Carter when are we going to see him play?

Re: Let's talk defense

I gotta' agree TAFKAS. Griffin used to be such a force and we hardly got a push in the middle.

Rogers missing INTs? That's par for the course.

Re: Let's talk defense

I think I yelled something like "9th overall piece of shit" at the TV when Rogers dropped that potential INT. You have got to come up with that one.

I really don't like Carter at all because he has done absolutely nothing to make me like him. GW was comparing him to a young Jevon Kearse, but I don't think he got close to bledsoe once last night. I'd like to see Wynn get int he game a little more.

Re: Let's talk defense

Rogers just has to start making those plays. The ball hit him right in the chest and he flat out dropped it.

Thankfully Taylor made a play right after with the strip.

Re: Let's talk defense

--Andre Carter sucks. At the very least, he was supposed to draw double teams and open things up for Philip Daniels. HA!

--They've put all of their stock into Cornelius Griffin and given him absolutely no help. How many seasons were they expecting him to stop the run all by himself?

-- Drafting Rocky was a mistake. The same mentality the coaching staff has with regard to Mark Brunell, equally applied to Shawn Springs. They blindly thought they could endlessly rely on him, and now it's come back to bite them.

-- Yet another season went by without any thought of addressing the pass rush other than throwing money at a 49er castoff. And now because Shawn Springs is out, they have no ability whatsoever to apply pressure to the opposing quarterback -- because, you know, you have to have a shutdown corner to in order to get sacks. How's that for some backwards logic?

Re: Let's talk defense

Yes, the defense has been just as much at fault as the offense. Last year, the defense bailed out the offense several times, including the playoff win at Tampa. With the defense being pretty weak this year, the offense owes it to them to step up. Unfortunately, that probably won;t happen too often this season.

Re: Let's talk defense

Did you bug my house? I said that to my dad, but I don't think I posted it. In fact, I had to put my computer away because I was afraid I would get mad and throw it across the room (turns out I've become numb to our crappy play and I didn't over-react).

Re: Let's talk defense

I'm sorry guys but right now you should ask for a refund from your FA acquisitions 0 - 4

Brandon Lloyd .- is he even playing cause I didn't see him
Randal El.- the most average 30mill punt returner
Archuleta.- Lot's of tackles 0 coverage he goes for every fake run is easy to beat him.
Carter.- Who?

all of the above.

Seriously though - they need to get back to basics with the tackling and coverage. Forget gameplanning if the basics aren't there - the answer would be: drilling, drilling and more drilling until they get the basics right.

You must have missed the first game, Randle El is the only one who IS doing shit...
