Samuels was much more of a technician than TW will probably ever be.

TW just needs to keep working, it just might take him a little longer than Samuels to get there.

Doughty was Doughty. Happy to have him, but if he's in the starting lineup, the offensive coordinator knows where to go on the field in the passing game.

Getting Landry back will give the Redskins an impact player at the position, but he won't fix the weakness at the position.
Good stuff. I had assumed he played well since it seemed their down field passing game was pretty limited.

I thought we were overall disappointing in the first half, but the second half was a work of art for a Redskins fan. It was a great half against any team, but the Giants aren't just any team. Depleted on defense or not, they're one of the toughest wins in the NFL. And we really took it to them.
Agreed. A 14 point win over a division rival that has pretty much owned us the past several years should be celebrated.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Giants at Redskins)

This is the way I see things: no matter what the situation is, who's out, who's in, it's NFC East football. It seems like no matter how good we are, the Giants always seem to traditionally play pretty well against us even if it's just for a half. Let's keep in mind that it's going to take a few games for this offensive line to gel into one cohesive unit. I didn't like how much pressure Grossman faced, but he played pretty well and made the big plays when the 'skins needed them. I would also like to see Armstrong become a little more aggressive when catching the ball. There are going to be times throughout the season where he is going to have to wrestle the ball away from the defender - can't expect to just catch the passes that are non-contested.

Still, we beat the Giants and we have our first victory of the NFC East. Let's not downplay that fact.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Giants at Redskins)

1. Oline protection was inconsistent, with bad beats on Silverback, Lichingwhatever, and Brown
2. Saftey play was horrible
3. Like to run the ball inside more with our guys, and think we could have.
4. Really bad drops by Armstrong and Gaffney...and the bonehead didnt get both feet down by Gaffney was a mental mistake.

Overall not bad...the second half was probably the best effort by the team in awhile. Really proud of the play by Rex and the entire defense.

I thought the refs blew that call on Gaffney. The only question to me was if his foot was on the line before the catch and even that wasn't enough to overturn it to me.

ah ok, makes sense.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Giants at Redskins)

Im not sure if this has been mentioned but i was kind of like what the hell happened when Paul and Banks had a little bit of a mis communcation after a Gaints punt.

We had the Giants pined deep and they had to punt it out of their endzone so the punter had to kick it as far as he could and didnt really have the option to kick it away from Banks or out of bounds. It would of been nice if Banks was able to run it back but him and Paul kind of both acted like they didnt know what to do. Its great seeing teams scared to kick it to Banks but they have to make the most of his chances when he has them.

Also, the second "drop" by Armstrong was just a good defensive play by the Giants' DB. Still it would have been nice for him to make that grab.

I was a little disappointed in AA with his 2 drops. Those are catches he needs to make in order to take his game to the next level. He helped make up for it with that nice diving catch at the goal line.

Yeah, that was a bad call. It shows that they can get things wrong even with replay.

It was good call. i think he did not have both feet on the ground when he made the catch. He started picking up his foot and then put it out of bounds.

Not a big fan of instant replay. I never can quite celebrate any play, without the fear that it could be called back. Not very fun and who benefits? No one.

Well, except for the team that has a incorrect call against them.
