Re: Redskins-Giants: Defensive Review

Great post. As I've said before, the D should get better and better as we go along. No panic here.

Re: Redskins-Giants: Defensive Review

Great job, Gtripp. Nice analysis.

Check out Dillweed's take here: Defensive Breakdown: Redskins vs Giants | postgameheroes.com

He thinks it's more Carter that's having trouble with the run, though no doubt having two undersized DEs is an issue.

Re: Redskins-Giants: Defensive Review

How can we have no hit's on the QB but have two sacks?

Re: Redskins-Giants: Defensive Review

Honestly, all I could ask for from Carlos is to HOLD ON to interceptions. He's great in run support and seems to always have great coverage.

Re: Redskins-Giants: Defensive Review

It's quite obvious that this defense is going to miss Phillip Daniels big time. Say what you will about his pass rush skills (or lack therof) but the man was a beast against the run. Daniels was probably a top ten DE against the run. Carter and Taylor are going to continue to struggle with the run all season and Blache needs to figure out how to fix it. Nice post Gtripp but from what I saw the Giants were much more successful running at Carter than Taylor, although they both played poorly against the run.

Re: Redskins-Giants: Defensive Review

I just read Dillweed's breakdown, which was brilliantly through. I 100% agree with him that the linebackers getting blocked by anything that moved was our biggest problem, but I do think Carter played better than the YPC to his side would suggest. I think the biggest thing is that half the time, the Redskins were in the 4-3 Solid, meaning that Carter was not the outermost man on the line. He actually held the line well, I thought, but that meant he was getting doubled in the running game, and that Washington would have to make a play on the outside. Marcus made a few plays, but as the YPC bear out, the Giants enjoyed way too much success running at him.

I can't count the amount of times I saw the DT's coming hard down the line to engulf the cutback lane, only to watch the LBs blown out of the hole before the pursuit could get there. It wasn't pretty.

Re: Redskins-Giants: Defensive Review

I would say Fletcher had the best game out of the LBs, but we've seen better from him.

Re: Redskins-Giants: Defensive Review

I'd like to see Fletcher have less tackles and have the front four making more plays.

Re: Redskins-Giants: Defensive Review

GTripp this is really good stuff, you add a whole lot to the site by doing this, I hope you keep it up.

I saw a lot fo the same things you did when it came to the D line. Certainly Taylor was targeted and struggled. And I thought Carter held up quite well, and when Evans was in there he held up quite well.

The DTs I thought were a mixed bag. I noticed that on one play, Griffin would hold the line real well, but Golston or Monty would get blown away. Then on the next play, Golston or Monty held up fine, but Griffin would get pushed back. It seemed on any given running play, one of our linemen would lose big time. Even if the other three held up well, the fourth guy giving way was enough for Jacobs to find the hole and exploit it. And that one linemen getting pushed back was enough to disrupt our linebacking corps.

It really goes to show that you need solid play from all of your linemen simultaneously or a good RB will find the hole and exploit it.
