Not everyone is cut out to be a returner. It would certainly help if Thomas showed something on special teams, but so far, nothing. We're going to have to be patient with Thomas and Kelly.

Re: Redskins vs. Panthers Gameday Thread

Here's my observations from tonight, and I sat through the debacle in person and took the drunken jeers from Panthers fans. Sadly, I could not say wait til the regular season.

1. Kareem Moore was all over the field. He's got great range, and I think he would be a better compliment to Laron Landry than Reed Doughty.

2. Fred Davis continues to impress and make solid contributions. He will be an asset in double TE packages.

3. Jason Campbell is way too indecisive. I'm really starting to wonder if he's the answer at the QB position. Guys were in position to make plays, and he just won't trust his receivers. He just does not get rid of it like he should.

4. GW's scheming is what made our defense.

5. Devin Thomas is still a deer in headlights. He's not reacting quick enough between the kick returns and that 4 yard screen that should've been a 40 yard TD. He just didn't go for the outside and in general doesn't look aggressive.

6. Yes, Jansen stood out as the worst of the worst, but the entire O-Line was getting manhandled all night.

7. If that's the dress rehearsal, I'd hate to see the show.

I just got home from the game. I don't want to talk about it. This game was a serious comedy of errors.

Re: Redskins vs. Panthers Gameday Thread

I missed watching the game because I had to work tonight, but evidently I didn't miss much. I watched the game highlights on NFL.com and I'm probably gonna watch the game (I recorded it) on Tuesday since that's my next day off.

Seems this team has a lot of work to do in order to get ready for the regular season. I said the same thing I'm saying now after we got blown out by the Pats in preseason two years ago, I think. I'm glad this happened in preseason, because A. the game doesn't matter, and B. it gives us one game to correct our mistakes in time for the regular season.

Re: Redskins vs. Panthers Gameday Thread

I missed the game on TV tonight, but listened to it on the radio. I have to agree with mooby. I'm glad we last. It is preseason, but it gives the team that feeling of failure and basically getting their asses handed to them to realize they need to focus and execute when on the field. I want this team to succeed and make the playoffs, but if we play this year like we did tonight, it's going to be a long season. I know we won't see much of the first string players on Thursday, so I hope they take this time and get the s**t together before we travel to The Meadowlands. Let's Go Burgandy and Gold!!!!!

I agree, it was a lot like that game versus the Pats two years ago. Brian Mitchell brought up that point in the post game with Mike Sellers, and even Sellers agreed.

The downside to that comparison is that the 2006 team went on to finish 5-11 as teams continued to do what the Patriots did to us all year. As bad as that Patriot shellacking was, this was even worse as we got beat on both lines from jump and didn't show any grasp of Zorn's offense. True, its only the preseason, but with the regular season 12 days away and this being our 4th preseason game it doesn't look good.

Re: Redskins vs. Panthers Gameday Thread

Wow....I woke up to check the score, and to see what kind of posts you all have made. I don't know what's worse, having the team play like poop, or listening to most of you talk about how jacked up the team is. Great fans. We've got our problems, but were was everyone with these little comments the past couple of weeks? O-line this, D-line that, Thomas, Kelly and everyone else has sucked, everyone's going down with injuries....how dare they play them....Blah..Blah..Blah.


THIS WAS ONE PRE-SEASON GAME, CALM THE F@CK DOWN!

That'll be all.....good night.

Its was last year when the Pats beat us like that.

2006 Preseason is what we're talking about. They really put the pound to us then as well.

I hate em.I hope Jake gets hurt again.I hope Steve Smith gets hurt.Their cheerleaders are fat and ugly .Their Chief Zee wannbee is a fat drunk. their mascot sucks , their fans suck. I know its wrong to wish ill on anyone but I hate the Panthers.I hate em and I hated them before this lost.I hope we can see them in the playoffs and kill them .I HATE EM.If I was given the choice of cheering for the Panthers or sleeping with a man.He better pucker up and get some vasoline.Yeah I said it.I hate em.I HATE EM
So I guess it really hurt when they kick our ass from one end of the field to the next.

Re: Redskins vs. Panthers Gameday Thread

I do not hate the Panthers the way you hate them. But one thing I noticed when I lived there and worked their games is their fans would usually start leaving by the beginning of the third quarter. Kind of a wine and cheese crowd down there. My experience is they are more jealous of the Skins then hating them, because of the people who are still loyal to them, and the history the Redskins have.

Re: Redskins vs. Panthers Gameday Thread

This is why we play pre-season games to see what we do well and what we need to work on. While I got upset at the Skins the little voice in the back of my head kept reminding me this is still preseason.

Ugh, here we go again -- comment on how bad the team looked, and your status as a fan comes into question. I guess we should be used to that by now. You haven't heard comments like this in prior weeks because they haven't looked this bad yet.

If you had seen the game, your attitude would probably be different. No it's not the end of the season. But a performance like that so close to the season opener gives legitimate cause for concern. Especially with all the injuries.

Re: Redskins vs. Panthers Gameday Thread

I was upset because Comcast blacked out the game for me on my Dish Network service.

I ended up watching a Yankees/Orioles game with my wife.

After seeing the score, I'm glad I couldn't see it. Reading this thread was fun though.




Thankfully Taylor's injury is minor. Osi's gone for the year and I don't see Strahan coming back since he said he's really enjoying his retirement (probably means he's not working out).

It's just preseason. I have no idea how we let a team beat us 47-3, but hey, it IS just preseason. With our extra HOF game, the guys are probably just sick of the scrimmages. Our preseason SHOULD be over now after 4 games, but we have one more.

We should probably bench all starters.

I really hope Frost doesn't make the cut.

Re: Redskins vs. Panthers Gameday Thread

Ummm... I dont mean any harm. But watching the game again today. Rocky Mcintosh was not playing well. He was not filling the gaps. He looked slow. I saw three BIG plays..Including the two big runs he could have made a stop or attempt a tackle and couldn't even get there .... one huge catch by Steve Smith & on both big runs by Williams & Stewart.
