I truly hope this team can turn this around and make me look stupid cause I think we all want the Skins to do great things but if the season is no different then last I'll keep saying they should look into rebuilding the team. If they could get rid of all the old dead weight on the team do it. Get younger,faster, and healthier across the board.

Our problem is what has been already touched upon in numerous posts on numerous threads, and that is we do not have the personnel for the running of a WCO offense. Some newbie in the preseason started that thread on Zorn needing to get "his" QB for his system. Most folks nailed him wrongfully for coming off as being a JC hater. I think the guy had a legit point though. Moss and ARE were acquired for the Gibbs offense as was Lloyd. Rod Gardner was a Spurrier guy. JC was drafted for the Gibbs offense as well. Basically it is like trying to fit square blocks into round holes. That is one of the main reasons our Wr corp sucks so bad now.

Might not be that complicated. Maybe Zorn just can't coach.

Re: Rams vs. Redskins Gameday Thread

Snyder needs to get his ass out of the toilet and stick with a HC and let the HC work woth the GM and the scouting staff to assemble guys that will best fit his system or at least adapt to it, although you would think any WR could be adaptable to any system. It just baffles me that we can't get any real production out of our Wr corp on a steady basis. I was hoping ARE was going to bust out after last weekend. I was wrong.

True, his playcalling and time management are also baffling, but our execution has a lot to be desired as well, especailly from the WRs. Moss and ARE need to be let go and not resigned. But yeah, Zorn looks to be in over his head.

It is already starting and it is only game #2. Half our line will be gone by week #7 probably, and we will have scrubs in.

I'm fine with the decision to go for it on 4th & 1 at the GL. The playcall was shit, but the decision was fine. Let's say we kick the FG, now the Rams run it back to the 35 or 40 yd line. They've still got about 1:20 or so, anything can happen from there, pass interference, blown coverage, etc.. It's much harder to drive from the -1 yd line to the +30 and then kick a FG, than go from the -35 to score a TD.

Oh yeah, and if you get the TD on 4th & goal the game is over.

I still think some of the issue is JC throwing the ball to hard for his recievers sometimes. Especially when he needs to just finess it to them. At this point I almost would like to see game film on this day cause the tv cameras don't follow the WR's down field so you can't tell if anyone was open on any play JC dumped off to someone else.

I hope, I hope, I hope they get the scoring issue resolved, but at this point you have to wonder what has to change to fix the problem. What ever they are doing now is not working. Especially with all the weapons we have.
i think JC doesnt look good if his first read is not open, it takes a perfect play call and him actually takin a chance for things to click. if his 1st read isnt open we all know what happens . . . . he checks down (which i guess technically is the right read but i wish he would take more chances)

Re: Rams vs. Redskins Gameday Thread

I really hate to keep the udates going about B. Mitch, but he just ripped Robert Henson who tweeted a very negative statement about the fans. B. Mitch told Henson to shut up and get on the field before he starts talking crap about the fans booing. Then he tore into Zorn and the offense again. This is great.

This was another game that I was severly dissapointed. Expectations were for us to blow out the game. Expectations were for us to put up like 30 points or close to it. I'll agree if we scored on each time we went to the red zone we would be close to the 30 points but again the Skins found a way to blow it. Found a way to win with the least amount of points.

Ya kow what I think thats it. They are trying to win with the least amount of points. Hell they could get a safety and stop the other team all day. Win by 2 points.
well, atleast we have a few more "preseason" games to figure things out. come week 7 the real season starts and hopefully we can get things clicking. the schedule is perfect for a team like us that relies on the D givin time for the O to figure things out. im actually excited after todays game. marc bulger is a top tier qb, been in the game while, hes a gamer. bring on matt stafford!!!

Henson deserved it. Obviously he's sitting at home for a reason. I'd rather be a "dim witted" fan, than a "can't cut it" practice team fodder, football player.

I can't believe that dumb ass would tweet that. It's obvious he has no sense of the rich tradition and pride around here. Don't get me wrong, I'm not happy with how we won, but this ain't Detroit or Cleveland.

I actually agree with that Mountain. I think we're going to be alright and hit our stride as the season go's on.
