Maybe he can double as a guard 6th OL?

Re: The Not So Obvious From the Browns Game

Everyone should be at least a bit concerned by yesterday's game. That game should have been cake if you look at it statistically, but it was very close. The D is fine, but again, very few turnovers thus far created this season. I rather have the D give up a bit more ypg if it meant getting 2-3 turnovers for our offense. Can't believe with our firepower we can't get into the endzone as of late against weaker competition.

I was very surprised there was neither a challenge by the Browns nor any discussion of this by the commentators. As I recall, the run came on first or second down, so we would have had at least another shot had a replay clearly shown that he didn't get it. But I did not celebrate that TD in my living room until Suisham drilled the extra point--I was convinced the red flag was coming.

I'm not sure Romeo C. is all that aware of what's going on out there at times. Also, why didn't he kick the FG on our 4th down stop? Whatever. Nice to see the other sideline goofing it up.

Hopefully we will get more sacks, thou our DL was a concern going into this season since we never really addressed it in the offseason.

We addressed it, and felt it was fine until the first two hours of TC. Then Taylor was brought to town. We would have had a couple more sacks out of the DL if Anderson had held a fraction longer and hadn't tossed into the dirt. So the dirt helped a lot yesterday!

Very True.

I'd wait a couple weeks and look back at this game. Aside from the QB, maybe the Browns aren't that weak.

I agree about the pass rush, but I suspect we were building O in this years draft and looking to next year to pump up the lines on both sides of the ball. The current record may well be something of a bonus to the organisation who I think were looking to next year to get competitive. IF we can pick the right players up in next years draft, imagine how much better we will be? Right now we need Taylor to get his groove back.

As to the passing game, I think Campbell is being deliberately careful and trying to avoid mistakes. Am I alone in thinking I wouldn;t mind seeing him make a few more throws down field and risk the INT?
Sorry to say but I'm with Mattyk72 and not with you. Turnover-free football may not be as sexy but it wins.

I understand the concern and have expressed as much. However, nyredskinsfan may be right that the Browns may turn out to be better than we thought ("they WEREN'T who they thought they were").

I also have noticed that we haven't been blown out (knock on wood). When the Cowboys and Giants have failed to bring it, they've been blasted. When we fail to bring it, we win or lose close. I think this is a good thing.

Re: The Not So Obvious From the Browns Game

Suisham, makes that field goal he missed and we would have been looking good at the end of the game instead of the nail biter. Does anyone know what happened there? Did he slip, or did the new punter muff the hold. A wins, a win. Hail To The Redskins!!!

I think the MNF game against the Steelers will tell where we truly are at, but I still rather have a defnse that might give up a little more yardage and create extra opportunities for our offense to put points up. Our passing game overall is vanilla, with the exception of some big gainers to Moss. Can't rely on Clinton every game to come close to having 200yd games all the time either. He is getting dinged up little by little with all of the work h e is getting.

Re: The Not So Obvious From the Browns Game

Our passing game won't fire on all cylinders until we have better receivers. The rookie 2nd rounders were supposed to fix this problem but haven't so far. It is still early in their NFL lives, though.

Re: The Not So Obvious From the Browns Game

Remember the long bomb to Davis, JC hits that, and are we talking about not blowing them out. We are working out the kinks in the new offense, and I expect the 2nd half of the season that we will be very excited.
