There's no need for positives, b/c there was none. Maybe the punter, but that's about it.

Can we rebound? Sure. Do I have major concerns about the offense? Yes. We haven't had one of our draft choices show any signs of being able to contribute during the regular season yet. That just leaves us, SM and ARE. I'm not sold on them getting it done.

Do I have major concerns about our D? Yes. I like Greg Blache but he hasn't proven he's of the Gregg Williams caliber yet.

This is after watching the first three preseason games. We just have a lot of question marks still. Of course, last night was about as close to live bullets as possible and we bombed. I'm not bailing but I do have major concerns.
Are you referring specifically to the wr's? If so, you're right, otherwise I disagree - Davis has looked good, and Rinehart might get some serious consideration for a starting job as the season progresses.

I know you weren't referring to the D, but the draft picks on that side of the ball have looked about as good as anyone could reasonably expect.

Spurrier already sunk the ship for us. This won't be a team anything like Spurrier's.

Name me one QB that could've got out of the way of Carolina'a pass rush Sat. night? That had nothing to do with pocket presence. The first round draft bust named Lewis, who was released by STL simply abused Kendall. We made that bum look like Reggie White. I'm not worried about JC quite yet.

The game when JC does make you worry.... I hope I miss. I cannot imagine it being much worse than Saturday.

yeah a quarterback needs to know how to feel the pressure around him and be able to move within the pocket while keeping his eyes down field. he also needs an alarm clock in his head telling him after 2.9 seconds you need to get rid of the ball. these are things you expect in a veteran and campbell is starting the "veteran" portion of his career. hopefully he will improve and the decision to bring zorn in to help him will bear some fruit.

it might not sound like it but i agree with your thoughts firstdown. good stuff.

go skins!

Re: Hey, the sun did rise this morning!

Did the sun rise or not?

Look, JC certainly needs to play better, but go and watch the Peppers sack again and tell me how that's JC's fault. That is a complete collapse by Samuels. MAYBE Michael Vick gets out of that one, but few others.

We got manhandled up front. Not a great game for evaluating QB play.

I'm not saying JC doesn't have to improve. No one is denying that, as far as I can tell here. But if the oline does not block, no one is going to save us at QB.

PS I am confident that Zorn will help JC to take the next step. That's one thing he does have experience with.

And the other three sacks? .... I swear, I think the kid is afraid to throw the damn ball or something. He has as rocket of an arm, so throw it away.... I mean seriously, wtf?!?!

Re: Hey, the sun did rise this morning!

I think someone posed the question earlier, was JC not seeing open recievers?

I bring it up because we tend to put it all on him or the o line. What if nobody was open on some of those sacks? If the recievers aren't open and/or they ran the wrong routes, at least we can say that he didn't force the ball into coverage.

The pump fakes might be because he decided last second not to throw the ball into coverage. I'll take that & a sack over an int.

To throw it away you have to be out of the pocket, I didn't see many opportunities for that. He had someone in his face on nearly every pass attempt it seemed.

Re: Hey, the sun did rise this morning!

Some thoughts from Zorn:

Redskins' Starters May Not Rest Up - washingtonpost.com

During one stretch spanning two drives in the first quarter, Campbell was sacked three times in six plays. Carolina Pro Bowl defensive end Julius Peppers had a season's worth of highlight-tape footage on the third sack, pushing Samuels into Campbell, forcing a fumble and recovering the ball.

"I hate to say this, and he knows himself, and he did not play the rest of the game like this, but on the fumble [after] Jason got hit in the back, Chris Samuels wasn't ready for the explosion that he had with Julius Peppers," Zorn said. "Now, he anchored [the line] the rest of his time in there, but you've got to be ready for play [number] one. He takes pride in what he does, I know that, so it was hard for me to even say that."

Because of the offensive line's inability to provide consistent pass protection, "it was very challenging from a play-calling standpoint," Zorn said. "I was thinking about not putting our quarterback in a situation where he had to hold on to the ball for a real long time. That would have gotten into an even bigger mess. You saw us getting the ball out quick here and there 'cause it was hard to trust" the offensive linemen.

"I didn't feel like I had that luxury [to go downfield] because of the way that we were pass protecting. You have to feel solid in that pocket. You have to feel like they're going to be able to hold 'em off. You almost feel like putting one of those guys back there and saying, 'Okay, try this. Try to throw with somebody getting walked back in your face.' It's not easy."

One thing I'm seeing is we're sending out 5 guys on just about every pass play. Does Zorn believe in keeping in guys to block? Cause from the looks of things our line is going to need help. It will be interesting to see what he does when the season starts. I know we all use to get on Gibbs cause he liked to keep in a lot of blockers.

Re: Hey, the sun did rise this morning!

Awful performance by all, hard to tell if it was the WRs not being open, the OL just stinking it up, or JC not making reads and releasing quickly enough. That aside, my biggest conern with JC is that damn long release. He brings the ball down to his waist before getting it out, I know old habits are hard to break, but I was hoping Zorn would've had him broken of that one by now. Ball held too low by QB = fumble.

When you have time to pump fake twice, you have time to throw the ball.

Re: Hey, the sun did rise this morning!

^^ yup that was one of the knocks on him when we drafted him. i too thought he would have been trained to hold the ball higher up after so much attention was given to it by gibbs. hopefully zorn will get it done.

All of the above.. He had no shot to complete those balls, the WR were locked down and the OL was 6 inches from his face from being pushed back..

[QUOTE=hesscl34]When you have time to pump fake twice, you have time to throw the ball.[\QUOTE]

The play where he 'double pumped' he was looking for Moss who slipped and then moved on to Cooley who was double covered. On a 3 step drop, it's not designed for you to have a bunch of time, get it and get it out. His options were compromised so would you rather a sack or pick 6?
