I do not think it will be possible to run the kind of offense we ran today next week against JAX.
I agree that eventually we do need to go deep, but I also believe we keep running it like we did today, and we keep building Brunell up with those smaller, high percentage passes, and eventually receivers are going to get open deep. Today was about getting some confidence back into Mark Brunell and the rest of the offense. Hopefully they will build from there.

In our previous 2 games the defenses were all up on the line of scrimmage, meaning they did not respect our passing game. Anyone watching the films of today's game would not respect the passing game either. We did a salutable job on making them fear our run though. The Texans did an absolutely horrendous job of adjusting on defense. We took advantage. There are plenty of positives to take out of this game, but the 22 straight completions doesn't take away from the fact that our passing game is still not clicking.
Right, BUT you have to start somewhere, and I think how the play calling today, and the passes that Brunell chose to throw today, is exactly what Brunell needs in order to get himself playing better. This is what you have to do...play with your players' strengths, and eventually the offense is going to open up so we will see some deep passes. Defenders are going to start crowding the line to stop the short passes and the running, and that is when you start throwing it deep. We just have to be patient.

I don't think we'll be able to play that kind of football and beat Jacksonville. It worked today because the Texans are inept. The short passing game was good for Brunell's confidence, we got a win, and JG does not have to listen to the bench Brunell stuff for a whole week. So, he's off the hook at least for this week, but I just don't think dinking and dunkin will get it done next week. Glad we got a win, will take them any way I can get them.

Re: Houston is THAT bad...

No doubt Houston is weak. But as folks have been saying, we did what we needed to do--pound a weak team into submission with ball control.

Remember, this is STILL a very new offense. It takes time to get a rhytm, especially on the longer passing game. This game was the perfect way to get some of that rhythm. We're of course going to have to be better. But this is a start. Now it's back home for JAX, and we'll see if we can do it against a good team.

PS I really don't see how one can bitch about Brunnell in a game where he sets an NFL record for passes completed in a row and leads the team to 28 points. Cripes, what do y'all want from him? To morph into Dan Marino suddenly at age 36? He is what he is, and Saunders did a great job exploiting his skills today.

wha?

I feel great. Me and some fellas at the Merc bar here in NYC almost got in a fight with some vagiant fans becuase they couldn't take our taunting. You don't know what it is to hate the vagiants until you've spent some time here listening to those meatheads boast about how great their overrated, half-assed, POS team is.

I think that the receivers were open deep, more than once. Don't get me wrong, Saunders called a conservative short game today that the skins executed very, very well. I still would like to see Brunnel start seeing the field better, but I think that will come as he becomes more comfortable in the offense. When that happens, the long passes will start happening.

Re: Houston is THAT bad...

Portis opened a lot of things up and look what he can do in this offense when healthy. Its like this in the first preseason game we were moving on cincy before the int. Everybody was fired up, but when portis went down it seemed to have a domino effect on this team. Today we get portis back even though we played the texans and look at the results. Mohawk and all, Mr. Portis is the face of this team regardless how great a game anybody else has. Brunell did awesome today, mainly b/c of portis. Shovel pass was nice and 4th and 1 up the middle was better. J'ville will be a bit more steep of a challenge but i think we can do it. We finally broke the curse of the AFC. Nuff said i'm Drunk.

Re: Houston is THAT bad...

I think this team did a great job of spreading the ball around. If you were on defense where would you go? This offense had them guessing pretty much the whole time. just like a Redskin team BALANCED ATTACK. Also, having our play maker back was huge. I think this team needs to look at this as the first regular season game and set a goal for an undefeated record from here on out. If this team continues to improve an all fazes of the game the end of the year could be very special (shades of last year). Good job guys, and let's keep those penalties down.

Re: Houston is THAT bad...

Houston is awful. They had me worried on their first drive. All i can say is beating them is no way to gauge us. the true test is the weekend at fedex. I can assure you jacksville is pissed off. We still have to figure out how to get the vertical game working. The dump off's are nice and they produced great results. against houston.

Re: Houston is THAT bad...

The Texans are the worst defense I've seen in a while. Not only are they bad, but they looked as though they hadn't prepared for the game in any way. Bad players badly coached (on defense).

Having said that, you can only play the games on your schedule and there have been a few Redskins teams I could name in the last 15 years that would have sunk to the occasion. I like the fact that Gibbs wins the games he is supposed to win. Again, I think Brunell's performance is something to build on. Let us pray for the Health of Clinton.

That's why I don't want to toot my horn too loud and will reserve my acolades for when we play and beat a good team (a playoff team) As much as I love wins I couldn'd get a good guage on the true progress of the team because the team we played today is terrible. At least we didn't play down to the level of competition.

Re: Houston is THAT bad...

Houston is bad. so bad, that one player was enough to beat them today. a bit of hyperbole there, but seriously, against a playoff contending team we need to be using Moss and Cooley for more than little hitches. remember them?
