I don't know, NT's aren't really pass rushers, which is part of the reason Haynesworth was so resistant to the prospect of playing NT. We allowed only 3.6 YPC against a 200 yard rusher on 19 attempts. If anything the secondary needs to get better.

Yeah, I would agree with that. We all thought we were getting a steal with Ma'ake Kemoeatu coming back from injury for cheap, but I feel like it's getting more obvious he's not cut out for NT any more. And I do feel like we will get better once Kareem Moore is back on the field. Reed Doughty shouldn't play free safety any more. Play him at SS or not at all, and we shouldn't have to see him at strong unless LL gets injured.

And I don't know what it is but we need to shore up our run defense. It improved in the second half this week but it's no wonder they pass for almost 500 yards when they gashed us in the run almost all day.

Re: Skins need to further invest in the trenches next season

In regards to the running game: What was everyone around here saying last week?

- Man we don't have any receivers
- Galloway is useless.
- Trade for VJax.

This week we throw for 400+ yards between 8 receivers. 7 of which had over 30 yards. Galloway would have had a monster day had McNabb thrown that deep post just a foot shorter.

The running game will emerge against St. Louis. I promise you that. The defense will look great to of course that won't be to comforting but you get my drift.

Re: Skins need to further invest in the trenches next season

I think our biggest problem so far has been general confusion in the secondary. I mean we're talking 8-10 plays this year where I, with an untrained eye and the lack of game film, have noticed open WRs simply because of poor secondary play. Too many times a guy is released into a zone and there is no safety there to pick up coverage. Either the CBs need to stop releasing everyone or the safeties need to stop biting on the play action or picking up the wrong WR. That has to stop. I know it's new scheme and that is the issue but they HAVE to improve on that.

Re: Skins need to further invest in the trenches next season

Defense allowed 526 yards, 468 yards came at the expense of our secondary. Too much blitzing by our secondary doesn't leave for protection against receivers.

Re: Skins need to further invest in the trenches next season

I agree. Rabach is garbage (see first quarter), Dock is average at best and we need another stud tackle.

Re: Skins need to further invest in the trenches next season

I agree with what others have said.

We need a G and a C on the Oline, I did not get a good view of this game as I watching it from the CPU and it is a little grainy. Did Kory L get in the game this week?

Our problems on the DL are still some what abudant. AH or not we need a real NT, and another End to go with Carriker. Adam C can be good here.

I can't think of any team with 3 stud tackles (we are ridiculously lucky to have Williams and Brown on the same team). Maybe 2 studs and a good backup but no one has had 3 since the Hogs. Heyer is a decent backup at RT. At LT he's a liability. It would be great though if Capers developed next year at either Guard or Tackle. Preferably Guard since that would be his best chance to start.

No doubt -- the obvious problem today was in the secondary. But I don't know if it's a scheme-type problem. Rogers, Hall, and Buchanon make up a veteran group of guys who should be familiar with what Haslett is trying to do. If anything, with as many blitzes as he's called, he's got faith in their abilities.

They just flat got out-classed today. And let's not forget, there were times last season when this same group of guys got torched in the passing game. Another playmaker would be nice, but every now and then you're going to have a potent offense that'll make you look like fools.

I don't know if Brown is still a "stud". We need him to be cuz Williams is probably at least out two weeks.

Can we trade for Hutchinson!?

They were biting hard on play action, and the play calling in OT took full advantage of that. Two runs in a row to Foster, then they fake a toss to him and the D bit hard.

Re: Skins need to further invest in the trenches next season

Gallaway made plays today .. i thought he was toast but dammit if he didn't get open and blow by people .. this OFfense will get better and better and better .... i don't know if the big VJ trade is necessary .. however if we can move AH then do it .. pardon my french but F That AssHole ... and again as much as I love Andre Carter99 .. he needed a sack today and just couldn't get it .. i'm sure we will be replayed on NFL network again this week so game tape will be flying ... 1-1 after this opening 2 teams is ok and actually good .. let's get our system rolling in st.louis and beat the sh*t out of the Rams next week .. Bradford better be ready for some real Defense

Re: Skins need to further invest in the trenches next season

Doughty proved to be an average NFL player who just gets a check for being a "good guy". Sorry but anyone who defends this clown is unbelievable. This kid get's the start 2 wks in a row and ****s up everytime; just an encore of his pathetic performance against Dallas. A FS should not be slow, bad in coverage, late to the ball, etc. Every thing they teach you not to do @ FS he does, and it annoys the shit outta me watching it. Like I said earlier, we will never be an elite team until we have some backups who can come in and perform when needed; and that's on our whole team not just the O and D- line.

Yeah, but if we had monster line, Schaub would have already been on the ground.
