skins skin jags: Thoughts?

i predicted right here that the redskins would exploit the jags D, but i cant believe how good our offense played against arguebly the best defense in the league.

i'm not trying to be cocky or ignorent but i believe that we have th best offense in the league, don't think that is to big of a stretch to say.

what are your thoughts on the game all?

Re: skins skin jags: Thoughts?

Some stats:
481 yds total offense
112 yds for Clinton Portis on the ground (a lot of it up the middle!)
4 penalties (low, especially considering the 'orchestraded celebration' junk)
22 1st downs (11 passing, 11 rushing!)
7/14 on 3rd down
33 yds rushing allowed
36 points against a "division I" team
4 sacks

Re: skins skin jags: Thoughts?

I was going to do a new thread for my game thoughts, but this one is good:

1. Why can't game attendees get in their seats for a 4:00 kickoff? Don't they know they're missing the marching band?

2. We shouldn't run a flea-flicker out of the close offset-I on 2nd and long. They are going to be playing the pass there anyway. 1st and 10 or 3rd and short are the better situations.

3. Randy Cross is horrible. Dick Enberg is one of my favorites. It's a wash with the announcers.

4. Santana Moss is absolutely brilliant.

5. If we are going to get an excessive celebration penalty for something that tame, we may as well circle up and do the Doc Walker fun-bunch thing for good measure.

6. Our secondary needs to do some serious tackling drills.

7. Can anyone name me a college kicker who can't outdistance Hall on kickoffs. (I am accounting for the 5 yard difference.)

8. Llloyd really is afraid of contact. He's got those Westbrooke baby-deer legs and melts when a defender gets within 5 yards of him. I think that if there were a tree on the field he would jump up in it to not get hit.

9. We should move Phil Daniels to safety.

10. The coaches were very disciplined in alternating Betts for Portis. This will payoff at the end of the year. I would have been sorely tempted to go All Portis in the second half.

11. Opposing Defensive Coordinators are going to have a lot to chew on with this tape. Who can they concentrate on? The snowball grows....

12. Did I mention that Santana Moss is really good?

You say that because the play didn't work. I don't mind at all throwing a flea-flicker on the first play of the game, especially against a defense known to be aggressive.

Agree on everything else you mentioned, especially the secondary. Can we PLEASE get Shawn Springs back now?

I wouldn't mind throwing it on the first play either. That would be 1st and 10. We ran it on the second play after a run when the defense is naturally thinking pass. I'm not against trick plays generally.

2nd down is not automatically a passing down. No matter, the benefit of doubt goes to Al Saunders. With his play calling, if you were the Jacksonville defense today, you just didn't know what to do.

Number 8 had me laughing my ass off!!!!!!!!! I agree he needs to step-up his game. This offense is starting to hit it's stride. So many weapons, so many choices. This the second game of the regular season. From hear on out we need to go undefeated.

I agree that Saunders called a great game. All I'm saying is that Jacksonville was not fooled at all. I think the 3rd quarter is the best time to call a trick play because the opposing coaches are completely wrapped up in the flow of the game by then. Surprise onside kicks work well then too. But these are only my crackpot theories. I'm sure the coaches had reasons to believe the play would work an that way at that time. They analyze those things in every conceivable way.

Yeah, Jacksonville seemed like they were ready for the trick plays tonight -- the option pass by Randle was another example. But that's one of the advantages to this offense: Key in on Randle El, and we'll hit you with Moss and Portis! Lots of weapons to deal with here.

Soon, once Cooley and Lloyd become fully in sync, they will be another dimension defenses will have to contend with as all of the facets of this offense start firing on all cylinders.

When that happens, watch the fuck out.

Re: skins skin jags: Thoughts?

I just got home from the game. I don't really have much to say except that the game was one of the most fun ones I've been to in a long time. We were out of our minds crazy the entire game and I really loved every minute of it; even when it seemed like we could blow it. Basically, that was awesome and I hope the good times keep rolling.

Oh, and pennies in empty beer bottles make great noise makers while in the stands.

Re: skins skin jags: Thoughts?

Besides that one catch Brandon Lloyd had a terrible game. I can really see what the 49er fans were talking about when they said he is afraid of contact, and good for only a highlight reel or two. He had two costly plays (penalty and fumble) that could have very well ended the game for us (if we lost, everyone would want his head). He needs to step it up big time.

This post is for my brother, wilsowilso, who I know had as much fun watching that game on the other side of the world, (NYC), as I did in the super dirty dirty, (Argentina):

Hell yeah!!!

He made 2 nice catches in the game, and he broke away from his defender only to have the ball overthrown on what would've been a TD. I wouldn't go ahead and throw in the towel on him yet...

"Besides that one catch"... Do you mean the huge one that helped them win the game?

"Step it up". Like make a huge 3rd down catch on a critical drive?

Unf-ingbelievable. I wish people would read their posts before hitting the button.

Re: skins skin jags: Thoughts?

I was actually pretty impressed with the special teams lately as well. Rock on KO's and Randle-El on punts have been outstanding- there's been some superior blocking up field for these guys during runbacks and it's led to superb field position for the offense. Return coverage has been nothing short of solid, as well.

I'm also extremely interested in seeing the progress of our rookie DTs from here on out. Golston and Montgomery are quietly stepping up while Big Joe is out with injuries. They may have been some of the best mid round grabs of the entire draft.
