Are the recievers getting open

Just wondering - are the Redskins recievers getting open, Campbell or playcalling? I think our O-Line is giving enough time so I rule them out and our running game is churning out some big yards so teams are bringing 8 guys in a lot - so why is it that the Redskins not getting downfield as much.

It seemed like Issac Bruce was torching us at will and the recievers on the Rams were wide open.

Just wondering what the reason is our passing game was not clicking.

I did not remember anything deep like the Saints game. Granted our running game was doing quite well but I thought they would try to go deep a couple times to Moss or ARE to keep the Rams honest.

Re: Are the recievers getting open

Campbell said in an interview today that they targeted our deep ball and wernt goign to give up the big play, they the coverages they called were meant to stop it so they had to check down a lot and look for shorter routes

Re: Are the recievers getting open

what about the one rams corner that was at the line of scrimmage making tackle after tackle? why not go to his man? it seems like we make little or no adjustments after halftime

The Redskins receivers are too small which does not make for good targets for the quaterback. We need to bring in a big possession type receiver this will give us more options in the passing game than just throwing it long and praying that it gets to one of our smalish receivers who are being checked by guys who are just as fast and much taller

Re: Are the recievers getting open

Well, for one thing, there seemed to be a lot of drops. Part of this is because Campbell throws the ball about 100 miles an hour...seriously, I think he would break my hand if I tried to catch one of his passes.

We've got the possession receiver that we need. He wears #47.

As for the small receivers not being big targets, Santana Moss plays the deep ball better than many many (most?) larger receivers.

I don't think a thing needs to be changed with the receivers. Just let them gel with 17. Continuity is key.

Re: Are the recievers getting open

It's going to take a while. Campbell looks promising, but we knew when the team drafted him that he was going to be a fairly raw project. No one thought he was going to walk in and start lighting it up right away. Six starts isn't nearly enough time to start saying there's a problem with with the recievers. I mean, it's fairly obvious that Bryant is a bust (IMO), but beyond that Campbell needs time to generate some chemestry with Cooley, Moss, etc.

Re: Are the recievers getting open

Its not that our recievers are not getting open, Campbell is making a lot of bad passes were he tries to throw of his back foot, rushing the throw when he has tons of time, or he commits himself to one reciever and doesent look at others that could be open. All Rookie mistakes that time will mend

Although Cooley is a very good receiving "tight end" he is NOT a receiver nor do he possess receiver skills. He is coming off blocks which limits his abilities and does not have receiver speed.

I am a huge Moss fan but in football it is not all about the "deep pass" and we need an intermediate receiver to compliment Moss' deep ball threat or defenses are going to concentrate only on him which is going to take away from some of the big plays that he can possibly make.

Options is the key and at the receiver position we do not have many at this point.

Re: Are the recievers getting open

The obvious ansewer is that the underneath receivers were open, but the Rams took away the long pass. We burned them with the underneath stuff and scored 31 points. We should win games when we score 31 points. Cooley was opened all day, and Moss was open on the comebacks. If the Rams understand how to defend anything it should be the long ball with the guys they see in practice every day.

Yes, I thought the game plan was good at attacking what the defense gave us, but I look at the stats post game and its another day of JC completing only 50%. Too many inaccurate throws today on attempts under 10 yards. And it's not that he's not taking what hes given. The completion to Duckett was a work of art, how he came off play action (eyes downfield) to find him wide open in the flat. But for every time he did that, there were 3 missed throws of similar distance.

Right now if you take away our deep passing game, the entire passing game becomes inconsistent. Yeah we had 4 good drives today (24 pts, not going to credit the offense for scoring off that blocked punt), but we have 4+ good drives every game. The difference is that today, we finished those and put it in the endzone. Instead of 1 TD and 3 FGs (16 pts), we got 1 FG and 3 TDs (24 pts). That's encouraging.
