Yeah I agree, most people dont realize how good Portis actually is.

I noticed that too, and I realize he is tall, but I have never seen tall QBs squatting like they are gonna take a dump.

Doug Williams was tall and never had to squat that low...and he had a similar wind up. I wonder if there is anyway of training Casey to not squat so low or if maybe he is just a short guy to begin with? Brunell had the same problem as well.

maybe a lower center makes for a better snap/exchange?

Re: Not enough protection for Campbell along with Campbell's inexperience=offensive w

Cutler has to do the same thing in Denver with Tom Nalen. Nalen also sets up pretty low.

Not sure what you can do about it. Do you really want the center to change his stance? Rabach is on the tall side for a center (6-4), so I'm sure the main reason his stance is low is for leverage purposes.

That's the point I was gonna make. The last pick Campbell threw, he got layed out by an unblocked linebacker while Betts tried to help on a Coleman (I think) who was already being double teamed. He can't block to save his life. That's why he's not a #1 back, that and he pretty just runs to daylight and then doesn't break enough tackles. He hits the right wholes, makes nice cutbacks, but never really seems like he's anything to fear for a D. I know he ran for 155 and a TD, but he sucked at blocking/picking up the blitz and just didn't really make a lot of meaningful runs after the first quarter.

At the risk of being branded a Redskins heretic, JC is still a project. I hope he develops into a hall of fame quarterback for the Redskins; however, he is not playing well now.

We can list all the excuses for this that might make us feel better, but the bottom line is that we have a novice NFL QB that is not rocking the NFL world right now.

If the ran a couple of screens ATL would of had to calm down on there blitzes. When I say screen passes I'm talking about screens to the RB.

I don't know, you could be right. Probably makes it better for the Center, but it just seems like it would be harder for a quarterback to drop back as fast as he needs to. Notice how Vick doesn't seem to get nearly as low and has one leg out behind. As soon as the ball is snaped he's in much better position to drop back to pass or to run with it.

I know we tried one screen that just looked horrible from the get go, but I think it might have been a screen to Mike Sellers or Cooley and not Betts. I can't remember though.

Re: Not enough protection for Campbell along with Campbell's inexperience=offensive w

The playaction was really slowing the development of the plays, and with their all out blitzing scheme, the PA shoulda been thrown out the window in the second half.
