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:
1) Pro Bowl LT
2) Pro Bowl RB
3) Pro Bowl TE
4) Starting RG
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.

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

The defense got beat once the whole day and they cost us the game? LOL at that. Yeah, I guess if you accept the premise that our offense is so repugnant that the defense's job is to shut out every opponent. But Dallas's offensive players are pros too and they get paid to try and score. Did you see any of the other games this week? Or this year? Teams score in the fourth quarter as they adjust to the defensive looks they are getting. I guess Chicago's defense cost them their game too, not their bumbling quarterback who missed three wide open guys.

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

Can I revisit this. So the Offense scored 24 points this week, do they get to say if we score 24points we ought to win the game?

The Redskins team does not know how to win. The offense had several opportunities today to get a blowout going, the D had a chance to play with a lead from the gitgo, and neither side held it up. I didn't watch the game, just spot checked in on it, so I can't make too many specific comments, but the bottom line is that until someone can show this team "how to win" they will be losers.
