Re: My soapbox rant Skins Frustrations!

Kelly looked good but the 5-10 yrd passes have got to stop. I know it's the WCO but Zorn also said passing would be our bread and butter and that we would be a scoring machine. Then said we would have to utilize the run until the pass got in to full gear.

Kelly and JC need to get on page with the fade. It looked horrible. Kelly kept running himself out of bounds and JC kept leading him there. I would like for once if they would use Kelly for medium range and Thomas for the long go route then use Moss in the slant formation. step back pump fake to Moss making the D think the quick slant is coming and pass long to either Thomas or Kelly.

They win at least 2 more games and possibly 3, so we may be facing a tiebreaker there. Meanwhile, I believe Dallas only wins two more games this season. They face Seattle, Pitt, Giants, Ravens and Philly. Obviously they have an easy win on turkey day against Seattle. But I think they'll lose the following three games and get a win over philly to go 9-7. If they played Baltimore after Seattle I'd give em the win but after getting the shit beat out of them in Pitt and then getting stomped in Dallas by NY I think Owens will lose it and the team will blow up.
Don't forget ATL they are right with us at 7-4 we can't afford to fall behind in the playoff hunt were sitting at the 6th seed now.

ATL has the Chargers, Saints, Bucs, Viking and Rams. I'll be very surprised if they win 3 of those games, but you're still right we need to get out in front somehow. And anyway if we don't win a week from today I think it's pretty much over.

Well the Offense is simply abismal in the redzone. The Defense is starting show wear and tear (especially against the stretch run). Lastly the play calling is seriously lacking and Campbell is reverting to his old ways.

I'm afraid that when this team faces a top tier defense, its gonna lose. We struggle against marginal teams (Seahawks, Browns, Rams, and Lions). I feel we have the talent to beat any team in the NFL, but I don't know whats the problem. My Questions: why can't Davis seem to find his way on the field vs. Yoder? Is there a rule that no more than 1 rookie can be on the field on offense at a time on our team? Why is Campbell still force feeding double covered targets? Does our line seem to get beat way too much in pass coverage? Lastly why does this offense still look the same as last years, and why are people actin like Mike Sellers as a target is something new? Gibbs used him alot! Do we just have too many weapons, they don't know how to utilize them all.

If we face the Giants like we played the Seahawks we will get beat. Please warpath ease my fears? Am I trippin, or am I justified in worrying?

Yes out redzone offense has been struggling...big time. We did finally get in there twice yesterday. The defense was playing with a few hurt lineman yesterday, and Alexander was playing most of the time so i would go by that too much. Our D is top 5 in the NFL. We have 4 picks the last two games and generated some pressure yesterday with some blitzes. I wouldn't worry about the defense. They have played extremely well all season. As far as Fred Davis...apparently he doesn't know what to do and when to do it. Zorn is not going to play him if he isn't 100% mentally ready. Yoder is a fairly decent blocker. We are 7-4, I dont see why everyone is so down. Would any of you have thought we would be 7-4 right now, honestly...with a new Head coach..a rooking head coach at that. Who would have thought Campbell would be playing the way he is playing. I think he has been playing very very good. He isn't forcing balls that I can see. I see the exact opposite, not taking chances like some other QB's in the league do. I think we are definately moving in the right direction. The offense is new to everyone, Zorn tried to keep most of the running the same because that is what the Oline is built to do. Sign of a good coach if you asked me.
people just need to relax. we are a decent football team, not great, probably not really good, but we are good enough to make the playoffs. And a team that can run the ball like we can, and play defense like we can, can cause trouble in the playoffs.

Going by this thread you would think the Skins lost yesterday. Just saying.

Re: My soapbox rant Skins Frustrations!

The Skins won yesterday and that's a good thing. The team is 7-4 right now, which is better than they were at this point in 2005 or 2007. So there is some definite good news to report.

On the other hand, the offense continues to under-perform and I'm starting to worry about the kicking and punting game. The way the team has played for the last month, there isn't much reason to believe they are going to beat the Giants this Sunday. Of course, that's usually why they call it an upset.

The Giants arent the Seahawks.

Re: My soapbox rant Skins Frustrations!

For me, I was just pleased we could actually put Suisham in position for some easier field goal tries. I've been saying the past few weeks now it seems like we stall around the 35-40 yard line of the other team. We can move the ball at will and then stall in that area. It gave me a great deal of hope we could at least do that.

While some of the Campbell runs were money, I don't know how I feel about actual PLAYCALLS involving him running. He's big and strong, but the last thing I wanna' see is Campbell going down because of a called QB run.

Re: My soapbox rant Skins Frustrations!

Look, the Skins are going to have to play their best game of the year to beat the Giants. Unless the G-men really lay an egg this Sunday [not likely], the Redskins will have to play better than they have all season. Can they do it? We'll, they should be healthy enough to do it. Of course, it might just be that our best simply isn't good enough against the Giants this year. That happens.

Re: My soapbox rant Skins Frustrations!

The biggest task will be stopping the run. If we force them to throw I think we win. Our secondary is arguably the best in the league.

Re: My soapbox rant Skins Frustrations!

The problem I have with Jim Zorn is his playcalling on third down. Several 3rd and 3 situations in the first half, Zorn elected to pass and was unsuccessful and led to several three and outs. It is frustrating to watch a team that has the best running back in the league on the sidelines on third down. Any defense that has studied our offense knows that were throwing the ball to Santana Moss. Zorn has to change his playcalling quick fast and in a hurry if we are to make it to the playoffs, because the Giants are showing the league how to score points with a running game and passing attack. Lets hope Zorn really adds some more aggressive plays down field and hopefully the OL protects JC.

LOL . . . The Skins offense barely resembles a WCO!! What happened to the 3-step drops to offset the pass rush?? I think Zorn feels that in order for Campbell to play his best he needs a second or two more to make a decision of where to go with the ball. Hopefully another off-season with Zorn and Campbell can take his play to the next level.
