Re: Where has the Redskins' Pass Rush Gone?

Golston was a mediocre DT with little pass rushing skills to begin with.

Carriker is a big space eater. Rushing the passer is not his priority.

Kemo is just supposed to plug the middle for the LBs. He's only recently been warming up. I only see him as something to just push the center, not get sacks.

Re: Where has the Redskins' Pass Rush Gone?

We simply don't have any pass rushers outside of Orakpo and AH. I think we need one more guy in there that can be disruptive. I thougth Wilson would be that guy but so far he hasn't even had enough playing time. AC is what he is...kind of an average pass rusher. Bottom line is it's going to take time for Haslett to get the type of personel he needs for this defense.

Re: Where has the Redskins' Pass Rush Gone?

Landry is an excellent pass rusher. If he played a 3-4 OLB, he'd be an absolute terror to block. But if Landry plays in the box, not just up on the line but actually in a gap, then you need to play both Doughty and Moore. And that's just not the best use of this team's personnel.

We need a real free safety, badly. It's our biggest defensive need.

Look our defense has given up alot of yards but we have held most ooponets around 20 points a game. Our offense has given up 2 TD's 2 weeks i a row to the Bears and Lions on turnovers. Our Defense has forced 19 take aways but due to how poor our offense is playing they have not taken advantage of the turnovers. If we had the Saints offense we would be scoring 28 to 30 points a game with all the take aways.

Re: Where has the Redskins' Pass Rush Gone?

21 points is about the same amount the were coughing up last year. However, our defense(Hall) has scored the game winner in two games, thus covering up for that for those two games.

Is this question posed in terms of recent years? If so, I'd say the GW years were pretty good, prior to that I have to go back to the Petitbon era when we had some good DEs, Mann & Manley.

Last year AC & Rak put up some numbers & if nothing else showed that if the coverage is good they can get there. This year I cringe about every time we blitz cause it seems the pct. always favors the O.

AC is still a good pass rusher but as GT points out, he is sharing reps.

Word to this. What sucks is we need FS AND probably a few other new pieces to make this defense tops in the league. If we ran the 4-3 still, with last year's personnel held over OR the current personnel, all we'd need is a FS and probably be elite...

...can't help but be sour on this. If Shanny sticks w/ the 3-4 and we do develop into a great defense that way I'll adjust. If Shanny dumps Haslett and the new guy switches back or otherwise takes the group a different direction I'll be effing irate.

Well, we gave the Eagles Nate Allen for a 1 to 3 year rental. Hackcoughhack. I'm a moron for being so hyped up about the McNabb trade.

Why? B/c Landry is a good blitzer?
Reed and Moore and even Horton if he wasn't hurt are good blitzers in their owm right not as dynamic as Landry but still good.
If you worried about coverage when a S is pass blitzing drop Landry in coverage and rush with another S.

I'm happy with our safeties.
Our biggest defensive need?
LOLB,NT, 3-4 DE and 3rd CB are imo far bigger needs then S

I would call Landry an excellent blitzer. He's not a pass rusher.

Re: Where has the Redskins' Pass Rush Gone?

I don't think this team has seen a dominant pass rush since the 91 team. Where is the human fork lift (Jumpy Geathers) when you need him???

I was a big proponent on drafting Allen last winter, and I think he's going to haveva strong career. But it isn't really accurate to say we gave them Allen Even though they took him with our pick

In the sense that we could have taken someone else with that pick, then yes. But even so, we did give away someone to another team. Taylor Mays to SF, Lamarr Houston to Oakland, etc.
