Agreed. But you also have to realize that the DBs as a group need to communicate better period. This has been a huge issue for a couple of seasons, and having two starting safeties and your other starting DB out with injuries hasn't helped much this offseason. Hall should improve his coverage, but he's a risk taker and I don't see that changing. We can't have our DBs looking confused out there in coverage. Our zone coverage will be terrible if CBs and Safeties don't communicate better, and we're going to give up significant plays if this doesn't change.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Ravens)

I wonder if Wilson plays poor is D Hall will be blamed for that? Tried to tell people Carlos could be a huge loss...

Austin and Armstrong are nice options but neither is as explosive as Banks.

I agree with you on the penalties. One of those penalties allowed the Ravens to continue a scoring drive, after we had them stopped deep in their own territory. Have to keep that stuff cleaned up.

I'm very concerned about Jenkins though. The defense really needs him in there!

This.

I don't want people to get the impression I think it's just D-Hall. It's not, it's all of them(safeties included). They all have looked terrible this pre-season, and probably my only complaint about the team so far.

Yeah im with you on D Hall. Id rather him play safer and just get the type of picks Carlos would of had if he could catch. I wonder if Hasslet wants him to play like that though, i kind of get the feeling Hasslet does.

Actually penalties have not been that bad the timing of the penalty was what hurt.

Last night was a typical Hall performance. Makes a huge play and then gives it back. But that was a perfect pass by Flacco to Evans. Gotta give the Ravens some credit on that one.

Austin looked really good to me tonight, i think he deserves a roster spot. Hightower looked like a stud, hopefully we keep Torain around because they can be an effective duo. I think having a tandem backfield can also keep some of the injuries away from torain. O-line looked ok, at times they looked very good like on a few of those stretches but at other times the protection was iffy at best. 1st O looked good against a pretty good D tonight.

As for Beck vs. Rexy... the jury is still out as far as i'm concerned. I'd let them both get a good amount of reps next week. Tonight really didn't help much, they both played well. They look equally good, neither have done anything drastic to win or lose the job. I honestly can't pick one over the other right now.
Id rather see helu in that role,he looks great

Actually, I think Hall was in pretty good shape on that play, he just mistimed it cause he didn't get his head around to the ball in time to find it. He was in position though, he just put his arms up in front of evans just a tad early before the ball got there.

If he's in position like that on most deep passes he'll make a play on the ball most of the time. It's much better than those times when he's beat deep by two steps plus and is practically out of the picture due to his cheating on the inside.

3. Bad deal on Jenkins cause he was having a great camp. That didn't look good. Any news on him?
4. Haslett called a nice game EXCEPT for the 3-14. Why isn't Rak getting after the passer there? ..Instead he's 20 yards downfield lost in space.
5. Both QB's played well but I'd give a slight edge to Grossman. REALLY nice drive at the end of the half. He can play in this offense. But Beck has surprised me. He looks like he belongs.
I don't think I was ever more wrong about a new Redskins addition as I was about London Fletcher....until Austin.

I thought he was a waste of a pick and a huge project, until I saw him last summer and couldn't believe how polished a WR he already is.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Ravens)

Austin has got to make this team, no way he lasts on the PS. I think it's just a question of where he plays, who he takes off the field?

Austin looks great, and that catch by Hankerson was pretty sweet, those guys might one day be the leading WR's on the team.......
