The next time I watch the game, I will count them. Unfortunately, I have to head to work, so I will have to post that tomorrow. There are more than you may think.

Assuming you are correct, and they were all by design (they weren't, but I'll assume for a minute they were) this is the 3rd straight game that all Saunders / Brunell has done is short passes. That means our 2 million dollar OC is not worth it. I will obviously agree you play the game to your opponants weaknesses, the Texans could not stop the short plays so why stop? I understand that concept. However, it did not work vs the Cowboys at all, and was not very effective vs the Vikes either. The offense just looks remarkably similar in terms of play calling and Brunell's comfort zone.

So when is a good time? A close game (vikings), a losing blow out (cowboys), or when confortably ahead (texans)? 3 different scenarios, all 3 games no gimmick plays. (not that we need a gimmick play to succeed, it just helps to keep defenses off balance.)

Hey, I am right there with you. But you can't blame a guy for keeping his eye on the prize (the superbowl). I live and breathe Redskins, trust me on that. I see a flaw in our system right now, and I truly beleive that if we correct it, we will instantly become a super bowl contender.
Like I said before, maybe the 22 straight completions helped Brunell gain confidence in a complex offensive system. We'll find out next week.

ps- 3 losses in 4 games is one hell of a huge hole to get out of in terms of super bowl opportunity. Not impossible, but very hard. The faster we right the wrong, the better.

Wow, you're a mean spirited person huh? If you do this to a fellow fan, I wonder what you do to your own family. Life is too short buddy, try not to make it as negative as you are sounding.

That being said, if you have noticed my posts in other threads, I manage a restaurant, and I need to be there at 3:30 MST. I won't get home til 1 in the morning. If you look at your clock, I do not have enough time to watch the game AGAIN and count the plays. Sorry man. I wish I had your time, but I don't.
This will be the last time I respond to you. I come here for whitty banter and to bask in the intellegence of Skins fans, right or wrong. Without trying to insult you, I hope you learn why we are ALL here.

Sorry if I offended anyone guys.

hope this was a reaction to all the blitzing and not just what the Saunders plays look like in practice.
Overly aggressive doesn't necessarily mean blitzing. Their LBs are very active and aggressive in pursuit, I think that's what they meant by saying they are aggressive.

Not so fast, I didn't they they were all by design, just the majority.
