The OC was kind of foolish too when h called a 60 yd pass on
3rd and 8 in the 4th qtr.

We made a similar play earlier, and I am guessing, either McNabb or KS knew of an Iggles corners tendency to jump the short route on those plays.

Well to honestly think that was his only option on that play is kind of ridiculous. I'm sure he had a secondary option, probably with a shallow to mid type route he could've gone to, and then probably a third option if he needed to check it down, but in the end it was McNabb's decision to go long because he thought he had Armstrong open. I would've preferred to have a deep inside post rather than an straight deep route just to give Armstrong more room to work with but in the end does it matter? We won.

Yup, but at the end of the day we got the win. There's plenty of improvement to be made in all three phases of the game.

If we're finger pointing at coaches, I'm pointing more at KS than at Haslett. Haslett hasn't been great, but he's making adjustments. Once KS gets off his original script.....well 3 points over 45 min says it all and we saw the same thing against Houston and STL.

I'm still seeing little creativity in the run game when there's so much we could be doing. This ain't Houston, and ain't the AFC South (dome, good weather, good weather, and Tenn). In the NFC East you must be able to run the ball and find many different ways to do it. KS needs to get to adapting or we'll struggle offensively all year.

Haha, how about the win as a positive? I sometimes feel people want the Skins to lose because it is so easy and almost enjoyable for them to complain and b****.

Obviously our FO is partially to blame for this, as they have made it a favorite DC pastime the last decade. A lot of half-empty glasses in this town, I guess.

Now thats no excuse for his players to all of a sudden forget or just not blitz, but I guess he figured, Kolbs a quick passer, and not a long down field passer. All of our blitzes don't get there fast enough so he'll just get quick passes and big gains on us all day...we'd be working to his advantage, and not ours.


Plus man our defense didn't Break today. We did good, not great, but enough to win. We sure as hell bent, but didn't break, like against Houston or the Rams last week.
I absolutely agree. It seems like the gameplan did not change a bit after Vick was hurt. I did see a couple blitzes towards the end, but not many.

In the end it worked, so who care.

There wasn't enough play action on first down imo. The way they were running I strongly believe there was an opportunity for a big pass play.

Re: Question that needs an answer before the night is over

We blitzed the crap out of a rookie QB last week and how did that work out?

DeSean Jackson was held to 3-19, Maclin 1-15.

Mission accomplished.

You are conveniently ignoring CultBrennan's logic(which I agree with) to blindly defend your position.

Haslett didn't change because he wasn't scared about Kolb's deep threat or running game. So he let him dink and dunk all day knowing he didn't have the ability to beat us. Furthermore, he figured blitzing will only provide a quick first option for Kolb. He rather let Kolb sit and try to make a decision, which were nearly game costing at times(Los near pick, etc.). You seriously think Haslett didn't consider blitzing lol? That would be more concerning than the Skins defense, IMO.

I am expecting an ignore of this reply.

Don't waste your breath. I doubt his/her mind is changing.

When you come out and say it he can't ignore it. Stop putting him in a corner.
