If JC can't come out of that stretch looking sharp, Then he probably shouldn't be on the team next year.
Same goes for Zorn.
Not only Zorn and Campbell as you have mention but alot of other players as well need to take a walk. As usual most fans always point to the teams failures as the QB and coach. How about the defense getting off the field on 3rd downs. How about the WR making plays and the O-line opening up some holes. It is a team effort win or lose.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

IMO we better take advantage of this little easy stretch to get our sh$$ together. If we botch 2 of these games id have to say we have a huge problem and Zorn will be under fire for the rest of the season.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

Well, is the offense vs the WEAK rams the exception or the rule? Fact is, we have had serious offensive struggles, and we should NOT have struggled to put the ball in the endzone like that. We played poorly vs the Giants, now again vs the Rams. If this continues, we will be no better than 3-4. I certainly hope Zorn has something better up his sleeve, but I am majorly disappointed in our performance in both games offensively. We have such a good defense that to see the offensive perform like this makes me want to throw my shoe through the TV!
If Zorn gets it 5-2, if not, 3-4 at best.

Well you could call the Rams game the bonehead game of the year (last year it was the same thing and we lost to them). Despite the win, I think everyone on the team is feeling the pressure, so hopefully that will light a fire in them.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

I can see the Skins at 5-2. I dont think any of the mentioned teams are good enough to get a big lead on the Skins early in the game so IMO the Skins D gives them a chance to win. Plus the O is moving the ball and mounting long drives so that keeps the ball out of the other teams hands even if they only come away with a FG it eats clock and gives the D a rest.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

We play Carolina after their BYE week so that equals a really tough break for us. I don't think I see us beating Carolina, but we could win a game we should probably lose on paper (Atlanta, after our Bye Week)

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

I'll add to DMV and 53fan from page 2:

Besides opening week against NYG, these next few games are gifts. Not in the sense that they'll be easy, but how much progress and morale could our team muster up if it was NYG, Philly, Atlanta, San Diego, NO, and Dallas our first 6 games? My guess is probably not very much, and we might walk away 2-4 realistically. That's a downer for almost an entire half-season.

Game 1 shows us that we're not on par with a Superbowl caliber team like the Giants, but the mistakes we made can be worked through.

Game 2 shows us that we still have mistakes, but some adjustments were made (D playing better as a whole, better route running), and we chalked a W on the board. We're tied for 2nd in the NFC East.

Game 3 will give us the opportunity for another week of practice with WCO, major work with the Red Zone, and to test our defense against another good RB in Kevin Smith, and an outstanding WR in Calvin Johnson. It will be nice to see Jansen working hard, too.

Game 4 will give us yet another opportunity to hash out adjustments, and try to defend Cadillac, Ward, and Graham- which will be tough to do.

By Game 5, although Carolina will have 2 weeks rest/practice, the name of the game is improving from week to week and I think our players and coaches will guide the team to do so.

The 'Skins just can't seem to play with much agression. DeAngelo Hall better get his act together or our secondary is going to blow up this season. So it's more than just the offensive line that needs help.
Luckily, the 2-6 last year lost to the Rams and this team beat them...although it was an ugly win, it's still a win.

This year's team is MUCH deeper on both sides of the ball.

I believe the offense will start clicking, although it's painful to watch until it does.

5-1 or 4-2 should be a reality.

The gift will be if Delhomme is still starting for them.

The biggest test I see coming in the next month is Tampa Bay.

I'm on board with that I was just telling my wife the same thing, I am worried about the Detroit game, we could realistically lose this game.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

I think the very least Zorn needs to keep his job ((and maybe also JC) is a winning season. Looking at our schedule I think for us to get to 9-7 we probably need to get off to a 5-1 start to get to 9-7.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

We need to be 4-2 at a minimum. Saw this in the Wash Post this morning - our next four opponents are 0-8 combined, their ranks in scoring defense are 32nd, 31st, 30th, and 24th respectively. If we don't start reeling off wins and lighting up the scoreboard in the process, Zorn is a goner.

Re: Could the Redskins go 5-1?

Detroit will see a new, improved Redskins Offense. One that can actually score TD's.

Here's how it will work: They don't try to ball-control the game, just sling it up there for 20-30 yard TD passes. No more Red Zone, no more scoring woes.

Well, what Zorn needs to do IMO is to stop changing the philosophy as soon as we're in the shadow of the goalpost. I really just don't understand it. We move it so well outside the 20's. Why change the playcalling when we get close to scoring? It seems so backwards to me.

Do you have inside information or something, or is this just wishful thinking?

I'd love to jump in with your enthusiasm, but at what point does our offensive ineptitude become a pattern? It's not like it's 1 game, or just 2 games, or even 1 year...it's MANY years. This is a pattern and needs an overhaul.
