He's saying the D is at fault. How credible can he be in the first place?

I just thought the strong suit of Dallas was there offense, but the defense was very surprisingly good during the game. I think Hamlin being out was a plus for them, he overated and sux. I also was saying in the previous post that our offense is so f*ing horrible, it can make anybody look steller.

Nobody can deny that the D has given up it's share of late leads over the last couple years, but again, the offense hasn't exactly pulled it's weight over that time and given the D much margin for error.

Re: I must have missed yesterday's game...

if the offense can't score one f-ing touchdown you can't blame the d, yeah we aren't the best, but we are pretty damn good, both sides of the ball have to do their part, the d can't play both sides of the ball, yeah it woulda been nice if they got those other picks, and d hall ran into the endzone instead of getting tackled by homo, but they still held dallas to one td, if out o coulda scored one touchdown game over

bottom line no way it's the d's fault

Re: I must have missed yesterday's game...

I think if the Defense allowed teams to score on every drive whether it was a TD or FG then yes the Defense would not be doing it's job.

I'll agree the Defense has allowed teams to score late in the 4th quarter. You either have a Defense that paces itself and plays conservitively and throws in a few rushes now and then so it doesn't tire out or you have an attacking Defense that by the 4th quarter will tire out, especially if it's on the field more then the Offense.

Basically we have the latter and we need an Offense that can put up some points. If the Offense can put up points and eat the clock the Defense will not tire out so quickly and the 4th quarter won't be an issue. Unfortunatly we have no offense to compliment the attacking Defense.

^^^Essentially explains being 3-7.

Things were different at 6-2, and even at 8-8.

Yeah I saw that too man.

Well just like we've mentioned Campbell seems to look better in the 2 min.. that's when teams go bend but don't break, typically reduce blitzes, and don't have the same time to get prepared for the formation and play

that's not just true for the redskins, it's true for about ANY team

But I think it is a consistent trend of this defense to give up points not only on the last, but also the first drives of the game. Think back to the first drive yesterday. Dallas went down the field with EASE. It was only a fluke Barber fumble that stopped that drive at the 20. Then the D locks down, like it can, but come the last drive of the 4th quarter, bang, zip powee, the Cowboys move it with ease. I don't get it. I think our D should be able to shutout offenses that are struggling (like the cowboys yesterday) but somehow, as good as they are, they find a way to diminish their effort.
Even if you give them a TD on that drive that Barber fumbled, it's not too much to ask for 14 points from your offense.

Name one other NFL team that can be without:

3) Pro Bowl TE

5) Back-up RG
6) Back-up RB

I know every team has injuries, but what other team has anywhere close to decimation of our offense? It wasn't very good to begin with, and I don't expect it to be very good now.

I view the rest of the season as a good try-out for the back-ups, and a good chance for the WR's to get more practice running routes. Maybe FDavis practicing blocking. And Jason Campbell - well, trying not to get hurt. We have no chance on making the playoffs, may as well get a good draft pick.
Yeah, our offense was ON FIRE before we lost those guys

i also dont understand why we didnt blitz more given green bays success a week prior. andre carter said they had blitz plays ready they just never called them.

trends - our D gives up inoportune scoring drives; greg blache doesnt dial up the blitzes, staying conservative.

i have a hard time putting this on the D thoo.

go skins!!
yep.. orakpo said they had watched the tape and were going to dialup some exotic blitzes, corner blitzes, etc

The really messed up part was there was an official standing at the MLB spot staring right at it. Remember when they made that call on Rabach in a game last year and we had a TD called back? Oh well..them's the breaks I guess.
