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.

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

He had 17 tackles.....I'd like to see a game when he's better than that.

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.
