Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Rams)

Like most of the people here, my major issue was with Zorn's game management and play calling, but I'm a bit surprised that no one has mentioned Jeremy Jarmon's boneheaded late hit on Bulger, which basically took points off the board. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and chalk it up to a rookie mistake, but taking the ball away from the Rams inside their 20 yard line, and giving it back to them because of a stupid penalty was a momentum killer.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Rams)

That Portis pass to Cooley wreaks of a head coach who is :
a) DESPERATE to keep his job
b) Not confident in his QB and his team's ability to run a normal play
c) Has way too much confidence in his ability to outsmart the opposing team
d) all of the above.

Answer: d)

I'm not going to give him grief over that. He tried to pull back and barely touched Bulger. If he's not a rookie, the refs might overlook that

Answer: d)
The one guy who as actually wide open on that play was Campbell. But I don't know that you want to ask Portis to turn and throw across the field across his body.

Still, I agree with your points above.

The only thing that bugged me is it appeared Jarmon realized he should pull up, but still managed to blast Bulger. Maybe Bulger is just that fragile at this point in his career, or he's very good at flopping, but most vet's know to throw their hands up, rather than toward the quarterback when they arrive late.

I know the refs flagged Jarmon (#90) on the play, but I am pretty sure he was not on the field. Wasn't it Orakpo and Golston that hit Bulger? Lets not kill Jarmon too much.

You might be right. Now that I think about it, it looked like a 60's number that actually knocked Bulger to the ground. Either way, it was a boneheaded play and even more egregious if it was Golston.

I'm tired of everything getting tossed back on Jason even when he plays a solid game. JC was a pretty good RZ QB early on in his career, plus he adds the threat of being able to run. How about a naked bootleg, or spread them out 4 wide and let JC operate out of the gun where he seems so comfortable?

I'm sorry but the RZ issues are all on Zorn at this point. He's shown zero imagination and he's not utilizing his best RZ weapons. He keeps putting the handcuffs on the offense in the RZ when he just needs to let it rip. He's going to lose whatever confidence the team has in him really quick if this keeps up.

No worries. That didn't seem like your style

I think both JC played better and Zorn called a better game today but like you said he does need to work on his RZ play calling. Zorn seemed like he looked at last weeks game and made adjustments so maybe next week we will see better play calling in the RZ.

Actually, that's right. I think it was Golston. I'd have to go back and confirm

Or too much imagination. 3rd down option pass from Portis? How about a fade to Mitchell or Kelly from Campbell? Simple, yet effective
