Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs Browns)

As has been mentioned already, an ugly win is far better than an ugly loss but the smack must be laid down nonetheless.

This week I lay the smack down on...

Complacency Before the fans complain about the Redskins not being ranked as high as the Titans, the team needs to start manhandling inferior opponents like the Titans did to the Chiefs today. Granted, the Chiefs are worse than the Browns but the best teams handle the "gimmes" with ease. These past two weeks should have been gimmes. We can't continue to play down to the opponents. It's already burned us once

3rd Down Offense It's starting to slip again to early season form. That needs to change

Scoring/Finishing Drives: We are dominating stats and should be blowing teams out, now only if we can sustain that domination towards points.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs Browns)

Ouf offense is just not clicking. Our run offense, stat wise, is awesome but we have far too many 1 and 2 yard runs for whatever reason and we seem to simply do something wrong every 3 or 4 plays. A penalty or a stuffed runa dn we get into 3rd and long. We just need to start putting consitency into our offense efforts. Cut the killer penalties and stop taking killer beats on just a few running plays heer and there.

On a scheme level we need to stretch a little more I think. Let's get Thomas downfield and give it a shot a few times over the next few games. Maybe get Davis downfield. Moss should be running like two routes. Slant and go.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs Browns)

3rd down offense is the key, I think. The rest follows. We've been good inside the red zone, I think (though I don't know the stats). I think Zorn will fix it--this is still a new offense and and a new head coach. I thought he adjusted well to get Santana some catches today.

As for the pass rush and TOs, yeah, we need to get some of that! There were a few batted balls that didn't go to our guys, and the D was very active, so I think the TOs are out there. But the rush hasn't been great, especially from the down 4. Maybe Taylor is still gimpy?

But Moss' TD came on a drag. And they did take a shot to Davis but they missed.

Suisham needs to nail everything under 40 yards. No excuses.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs Browns)

I think the Browns and Rams where tougher then we orginal thought two weeks ago. Both of them have blown out other NFC East teams and they both have plenty of weapons.

Now with that said Detroit is a loser and we should kick the shit out of them. I am looking forward to a relaxing blow out.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs Browns)

How bad is Derek Anderson? Outside of the Giants game he has not looked like a NFL starter this season. If he could just hit a WR we probably would have been in some trouble yesterday. He's awful. Time to give Quinn a shot I think.

I agree, but it was fairly obvious that the new punter took a little longer getting the snap down, which threw off Suisham's kicking motion. I don't imagine that will happen again.

I don't know what happened exactly, but Zorn said it was just a bad kick by Suisham.

It was a bad kick, but at the very least, Suisham and Plackemeier were out of sync. That shouldn't be an issue, going forward.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs Browns)

He's not a Redskin, but:

Romeo Crennel -- In a game that could have got his team back into the chase in the AFC North, he avoids for the second time in three games making a QB change at halftime when it is obvious that it can only improve his teams' chances of winning. Then you get a first and goal at the one yard line, and you end up going backwards because you can't call a play that relies on your QB to do anything. Despite a relative meltdown from the Redskins from that point on, the game was all but over when the Goal Line stand was made.

We outplayed Cleveland a lot more than the final score suggested, but if they had changed QBs at half and Quinn plays even mediocre, they probably beat us.

For those of you counting, that's two wins this year that Crennel has cost the Browns.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs Browns)

HOW ABOUT GIVING SOME PROPS TO OUR DEFENSE! Essentially we stopped them 7 times on the goal line. Yeah they got it on the final 4th and 1 with that play action fake. But we were all flying around all over the field! I mean those hits by Carlos and London yesterday were SWEET!

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs Browns)

I don't know what game you guys were watching, but Derek Anderson looked bad because the Redskin defense was flying all over the place. The receivers were dropping passes because they were getting drilled after the catch. The Browns had a hard time scoring in the red zone because the Redskin defense was hitting every thing moving. The score was low because the Redskin offense had poor field position, committed dumb penalties and didn't convert on third down.
