Re: First and goal on the one yard line, what would you do?

The standard sequence when you are that close should be run pass run. Given the clock I would have gone pass run pass but, they nearly scored on first run and decided to take a chance. I don't know why everyone is so focused on the offense. The defense's inability to play pass defense is the only thing that causes me concern at this point. We will always give up big yards when we rush four and play zone. It looked like a repeat of last year in the second half.

Now, I will go back to my bye week. Everyone relax.

Re: First and goal on the one yard line, what would you do?

Big perspective on first and goal at the one,..... yes we are all sad that they did not get in, but to win the game, they would have not only needed to get in, but make the extra point and then score again in OT.

The OT situation was a fortunate situation against the Dolphins, but the Skins could have very easiy lost in OT to the Giants this past weekend.

A TD last week was not for the win, but for a tie and a CHANCE in OT. Again, only a CHANCE. The Football Gods, (as TMQ would call them), decided that the Skins played too bad in the second half to deserve the win, so they saved us the sadness of losing in OT, and just gave it to us early!

Re: First and goal on the one yard line, what would you do?

Goal line plays:

1ST DOWN: Spread the field w/ three wr's and just Sellers in backfield. Sellers crashes down on the right side and Campbell follows him in (because like others have said NY PREDICTED we would go left).

2ND DOWN: I-formation w/ Portis following Sellers to the left, but it's a fake and ARL sweeps from left to right going wide for a TD run.

3RD DOWN: Clock could be way down so it probably has to be a pass. Something play action to Betts w/ a corner shot to Cooley.

4TH DOWN: Honestly, I can't see it going this far. Get the ball to CP and let him sniff out the goal line.

The fact is you take every opportunity to try and come after me and make it personnel, not that I really care it's like arguing football with a 3 year old, he's going to disagree but you know you can't talk sense to him so you smile and leave him be. I really have more than enough confidence than to have to run around trying to conger up respect from others [although I usually find when someone has to drag others into, or site other people to help fight their battles they are all out of facts and just grasping at straws], lets face it your a GIG guy and any one who says anything about your beloved Gibbs is to be ostrosized, I actually have OPINIONS of my own, I am not dancing at the end of some string like a puppet being dangled by JG.

That quote is just precious, I am one of the few members who does not attack people personally for there opinions until they make it personal with me, I may debate with them till we are both blue in the face but I don't make it personal. You on the other hand do nothing but. You continually make personal attacks not on occasion but daily, any one who says something you don't like, or agree with gets a healthy does of basically your an idiot in one form or another from you, lets face it you think your the big dog around here when it comes to the skins, and if I thought for one second you had remotely any real valued football knowledge I would say it regardless of how I would feel personally towards you or any one else for that matter, but your not even close. Your a little dog with a big bark.

It's funny you say to respect opinions constantly, but not when it comes to a criticism of the Skins, why? Because any one who has criticized the Skins under Gibbs has been for the most part right since his return, it is frustrating because I want to win as much as any body, but the fact is we are not on the right track, he is not progressing as a coach, we are seeing the same exact problem now that we saw in 2004, nothing has been fixed other than sitting Brunell, the game has long passed him by and many can't admit it, that doesn't mean I am not going to root for him, it just means I see the same problems cropping up that we have seen in the past and we all know what that leads to. The fact is any one who watched that game on Sunday saw the same garbage we saw on opening day against Tampa in 2004, we all scratched our heads and wondered why gibbs stopped pushing the ball in the second half keeping Tampa in the game? Well here it is 4 seasons later and he's still doing the exact same thing and you can't see it, you keep expecting him to some how come out and be the coach who rolled up the score on team after team in 92' well it ain't happening unless he removes himself from all aspects of the offense! With the talent we have on offense especially in the passing game coupled with the horrid Giants defense the fact that we didn't score 40 plus points is a joke, the Giants don't have a player on their team who can cover any one of our WR's, and their LB's cant come close to covering Cooley, and we did nothing in the second half, if that doesn't scream Gibbs and his coaching ability I don't know what will?
LOL! Same ol' Offiss. Takes any opportunity he can to crap on the team but won't back them when they're playing well. Only going to be a fan when things are going great.
Not the same Skinsguy that posts on ES.

Actually, offiss has a stong case here. I always remind myself there is a lot to love about the Skins today, but the coaching/playcalling leaves a lot to be desired. I think you can even see how the offense finds it hard to get excited about the playbook.

Re: First and goal on the one yard line, what would you do?

Doc Walker gave a great analysis of the 3rd down play where Betts tried to cut to the inside instead of following Mike Sellers around the left end. Not a very good move instinctlvely when there's no daylight to be found inside. Follow Sellers, and he probably scores. Of course that's all moot if Campbell leads Sellers with the pass on 2nd down. Bottom line, no play will work with poor execution.
