What is our game plan for victory versus Chicago

I can't dwell on this game and make excuses. I want to look forward to working towards a W versus Chicago. Obviously, we cannot turn the ball over versus the Bears. As many are crucifying Gibbs, this is our opportunity to give the keys to victory.

I am worried about the way we have been kicking off and punting. That has to improve. I cannot see the "other" Adrian Peterson running all over us, and Grossman is not going to hurt us. We have to make a commitment to running the football and run blocking. Lets sit Wade down and put Heyer in fulltime. 6 of the 7 losses happened on the last play of the game. We are close enough to win, but have not moved over the top. If we run power run between the tackles and protect the football this is a winnable game.

Bottom line is we have to get the running game back on track. Some may call it boring, but you have to be able to run the ball.

Re: What is out GamePlan to Victory versus Chicago

Guys its no excuse but INJURES to the OLINE have killed us, again JC gets hit all the time he has no true #1 wr, when your #1 is a Tight End your not going to be that successful. Cooley is a Pro Bowler or atleast should be, but no WR's kill us Moss is a #2 at best we all know this. The D has been pretty good all year but our Offense just cant get it done! I mean come on CALDWELL AND McCardell???? Our biggest need in the draft or offseason is to get a WR period!

Re: What is out GamePlan to Victory versus Chicago

Do they even have time to install a gameplan? The funeral is Monday, the players have off on Wednesday, and so they create a gameplan and do the walk-throughs on Tuesday? I don't think there is going to be much film review for this one.

Redskins Gameplan vs Chicago

Run Clinton Portis 25 times for around 2 yards per carry and keep Ladell Betts on the sidelines.

I really am frustrated by this too. Portis will have 2-3 carries a game where he might break one for over 5 yards but he just isn't much of a factor. I want to see Ladell take some of the load because Portis just isn't cutting it.

Play better on O and hope the D can actually make a stand and hold a team when the game is on the line.

The Skins wont win this game and they might not win another game the rest of the year.

I agree that Ladell "I heart fumbles" Betts needs to get more carries, but lets not think that a simple change of the back is going to be a cure-all. I'm not sure if anyone happened to see our O-line, but it was pathetic today. The pass protection was pretty awful and the run-blocking was non-existent. I'm no expert, but I think that the O-linemen are supposed to drive the defenders past the line of scrimmage. They seemed to be in drop-back, pass-protection mode all day.

I do agree the o-line was terrible but I think that Betts hits the line harder than Portis. I was going to say hits the hole harder but there doesen't seem to be any holes for our backs to run through. Maybe because Betts runs harder though he can make some himself.

Re: What is out GamePlan to Victory versus Chicago

I actually liked the running game today. So I'd stick with that. I think running is boring but today I did see how the running game opened up the PA pass. The Bills were biting on PA really bad today. So I'm hoping it could work the same way against the Bears. So, basically I think it's gonna be a run heavy game.

Re: What is out GamePlan to Victory versus Chicago

portis has been slamming up the middle and running stretch plays... we've only seen betts on sweeps and counters with pulling linemen blocking in front of him...

Portis is a better back. They pretty much proved that early on this season.

Re: What is out GamePlan to Victory versus Chicago

keep the ball out of devin hester's hands.. and run some no huddle offense. If we have a lead in the second half keep throwing the ball.

Agreed. Jason is still too mistake prone to put the entire offensive team on his shoulders. I would also like to see Betts get more carries when Portis is struggling at 2 YPC.
