Redskins vs. Eagles Game - Positives

It was a sloppy win, but a win. Here are my positives...

- A good start with 14 straight points (which probably won us the game)
- Torain was running with purpose
- At least in the first half, we did a decent job with 3rd downs
- We're 2-0 in the NFC East
- We finally have a 2-headed running game (well hopefully CP is not that hurt)
- 'Zo starting was a good idea

Re: Redskins vs. Eagles Game - Positives

I agree and defense played much better with a lead.

Great point. If we hadn't spotted the Rams 14 points to start the game last week, it argueably could've been different. Just like giving them 14 points to start the game last week is what changed the game, us coming out and scoring 14 to start gave us a boost, and our defense played good enough to hold that lead throughout.

And the running game showed up. It made a big difference because McNabb was basically shut down in the second half, and the running game was doing good enough to keep drives going and eat up clock. If they shut down our running game, there's a good chance we see a lot more 3 and outs in the second half and they come back to win this game.

Still plenty of negatives but this time we did make enough plays when we had to in order to win.

Re: Redskins vs. Eagles Game - Positives

Although Heyer was called for several penalties, anyone hear from Trent Cole?

Torain was da man. Quentin Mikell, meet Ryan Torain.

The defense looked much better. We needed more of a pass rush but we did not give up the big play.

Lorenzo Alexander makes the defense better when he starts at LB.

Wow, big win. I'll chime in more later, just wanted to say I was impressed with how we bounced back strong today.

Re: Redskins vs. Eagles Game - Positives

Also, as someone mentioned, the DBs did a good job keeping Maclin and Jackson as non-factors in the game. And they had a bit of a down moment (Rogers INT drop that could have ended the game) and a big time up moment (D. Hall's INT that ended the game).

Re: Redskins vs. Eagles Game - Positives

Adjustment on defensive scheme was a good thing to see
It looked like a ton of 4 -3 to me...with a lot of Haynesworth.
I did see a couple 2 man fronts, that usually failed...but a 4 man front is better than the 3 we'd been seeing.
Looked a lot more like last years 4-3 defense than the prior 2 weeks garbage....and that is a good thing.

Re: Redskins vs. Eagles Game - Positives

My Positives:

1. O-Line play with their best player out on the road in a tough place to play...wow, really impressed with the run blocking and pass blocking was good.

2. Portis and Torrain. When we run, we win. Redskins football period

3. Hall and Los on Macklin and Jackson were outstanding. Im so impressed with their play today. Philly had to dump the ball down. Rather that than the big play all day long.

4. Haslett and Defense stepped up their game second half. Everything seemed better.

5. Albert showed his ass in a good way today.

The Bad

1. McNabb in the second half was horrible.

2. Bidwell is horrible, Hunter would be an upgrade...I dont get y he isnt here.

3. I think the playcalling with Kyle got bad in certain spots.

Re: Redskins vs. Eagles Game - Positives

1. Donovan should have stayed in bounds.
2. Heyer should have stayed on-sides.
3. Carlos should use stick-um.

The positives: We overcame them all to win the game! (Something that simply would not have happened under Zorn).
