Re: Redskins vs. Cowboys Gameday thread

They gave the ball to Marion Barber 11 straight times to step on our throat. Wow. That's embarrassing. Barring a big turnaround, we're in a for an ugly stretch run. We seem to be regressing weekly.

Story would have been different if the offense established consistently long drives that kept Dallas' offense and our defense off the field.

Kudos to Portis playing hurt. The guy wants to win and is not afraid to go out there and try to carry the team on his back. IMHO, he's the best get we've had in the past 5 years not just from a standpoint of being a great running back, but also being a positive influence on the field and in the locker room.

I feel for Jason Campbell. It must suck being him because it seems like every time he drops back to pass he's walking on a mine field in a war zone. The passing game will never develop without protection. It's gotta start with the line.

Can't do much with the line until the end of the year, but for now sit down Jansen and put Heyer back out on the field. I seriously think Jansen has a better future as a commentator than a RT. The O-line is in serious need of a youth movement.
Some of us were saying that long before the April draft, but apparently there were NO offensive linemen worth taking with any of our THREE second round picks.

Re: Redskins vs. Cowboys Gameday thread

I imagined Zorn would show a little more passion in the post game conference.

Kendall is having a great year. Samuels WAS having a great year, but the injury is clearly making a difference. Rabach is awful. Thomas is awful. Jansen hasn't been that bad, but he's not agile enough to block someone with more than one move. Luckily, on the right side, most of the rushers he faces only have one move, and he did pretty well tonight. Campbell has little faith in him and keeps flushing himself on plays were Jansen actually has pretty good leverage.

The OL is pretty good at run blocking, but it doesn't matter if teams can just stack the box on you.

We faced a lot of piss poor opposing coaches in the the first half of the season, which I think masked a lot of issues with the offensive line. We were able to grind out the fourth quarter because Campbell was BURNING people who blitzed us. So rather than fill the box and not blitz, these idiot coaches just backed way off and Portis just gashed them.

Randle El has been huge this year for us, but when he's hurt there's just nothing the passing game can hope to accomplish. Our offensive depth is beyond the realm of awful. Back in 2006, a lack of depth on defense killed us. We've totally fixed that problem, and we now have great depth on defense, but we need everyone healthy on offense to be great and we're just not.

Re: Redskins vs. Cowboys Gameday thread

Also: Landry is not Sean Taylor back there. Teams can get the big plays against us.

Re: Redskins vs. Cowboys Gameday thread

I knew when we didn't capitalize on those turnovers. We were going to lose. It was just like the Steelers game. The defense can't keep up like that the whole game. They're bound to give at some point. Dallas & our poor offensive play eventually wore them down.

not necessarily

it could have changed the game, but if you can't put up more than 10 points you have bigger issues than missed calls, imo

Rabach and Jansen are just bad. Griffin and Kendall are old. Andre Carter is mediocre, Golston and Motgomery are just ok and Jason Taylor is hurt and or washed up. It's a pretty sad state of affairs.
Couldn't say it better if I tried. The exact precise reason why we're not winning. We don't force turnovers or pressure the QB. That starts with D-line. O-line has been good run blockers, but they suck something awful in pass pro.

Neglecting the line scrimmage on both sides of the ball in the draft over the years has us where we are today. Mediocre at best.

I agree we have much bigger issues. However, in a 4 point game a few missed calls can cost u the game.

Re: Redskins vs. Cowboys Gameday thread

Why are they interviewing Rabach on post-game? They could at least interview someone good.

Re: Redskins vs. Cowboys Gameday thread

But hey, at least we drafted 3 pass catchers with our first 3 picks this past spring. That was brilliant.

That's a good point about Jansen. He actually held his own tonight -- props need to go to him. Still, if he's in Washington in 2009 I'll be stunned.

I don't know if I agree that Randle El has been 'huge' for us this year. Zorn seems to be working him in the gameplan more than Gibbs ever did, but when you look at our overall pass production (granted blocking has sucked) he still hasn't given us much in terms of a #2 guy.
