Drafting all these big WRs is a total waste if we refuse to use them. We should have used the three 2nd round picks in 2008 to bolster O-line depth.
Yeah...it begs the question...Why did we try so hard to draft a receiver with our first 3 picks and then run, run, desperate pass, punt on every series?

These receivers we tried to secure with all 3 of our picks are going to have no impact in our run HEAVY offense...what the hell was so important to selecting them?

You're right why wouldn't we have drafted OL if we intended to run all the time?

Re: Potential Epic Fail

So help me out.....Where does our problems lie? I was thinking last night that we held the Giants to 23 points unlike Dallas. We were in the "Red Zone" 4-5 times against them which might have let us win the game. Defense again held their own yesterday but the offense let us down again. We were in the "Red Zone" 3-4 times which would have been a blow out had we scored TD's each time.

Watching the Giants/Dallas game it looks like their defenses are definitly not as good as ours, but their offenses are a lot better. Both teams scored on each other pretty freely. If we can get our scoring maching on a roll we might be a lot better team then both. Thats the good side of things.

What I observed, Dallas obviously has an outside running threat that the Giants didn't want to have them explioted so they spread out their defense 3 DL in the box to keep everything in front of them and between the tackles. Dallas ran up the middle all day. When we played the Giants they were not afraid of us running outside so they stacked the box with 8 DL in side the tackles which in effect took our running game away from us. Did anyone else notice and what can we do?

Matthew Stafford might make some mistakes, but the Redskins have trouble capitalizing on those, and he will take some shots. Despite the final score, the Skins even struggled with them last year. Never mind the media being all over it, the Warpath servers will shut down if they lose to Detroit.
You are smoking crack if you think the lions are going to be favored. No chance in hell that happens.

seriously...we have been working on scoring in the redzone for the last how many years. Its was an issue that was supposed to be resolved when we drafted Thomas, Kelly, Davis, and kept the kid from Nevada. But its hard to say anything positive when we are apparently the only team in the NFL that can't run a fade pattern to a 6'4 wide receiver in the endzone. its amazing!

Yeah I would much rather have a "script" on how to survive a potential hurricane, then use careful planning and preparation to thwart a tempestuous catastrophy.

Re: Potential Epic Fail

I think we should win but cant manage to ever be right with this team. If our defense keeps up the good play and campbell and portis perform it will be an easy day. If we dont snyder may begin a very quiet "stalin-esque" party purge.

Re: Potential Epic Fail

It's time for the offense to win a game. But if the 'Skins lose to the Lions, Zorn should be fired, and I've been backing him ever since he was hired. I just can't take anymore poorly planned offensive schemes, but it's more than Zorn, it's Campbell, too. He refuses to get rid of the ball by making quick decisions. Watching some of these other QBs really opens your eyes to Campbell's problems.

If we lose to the Lions I will change my avatar to a Cowboys avatar for a week.

The shame of losing will be far worse than the shame of the avatar.

Wow.. I can see the WP's bandwidth being absolutely ridic if we lose to the Lions.

Like.. the planets will align, hell may reign down on the Metro area, and the Rant Thread in off topic will grow to the size of the Super Happy Fun Thread in the matter of a night.

I suggest Zorn sleep with the lights on and a bodyguard as well.

Very likely we are going to lose? Are you drunk? We have handled Detroit the last two years and our defense is getting better by the snap.

I understand being concerned about next week, but "very likely" to lose to a team that hasn't won since 2007 is pretty ridiculous.
