When I looked at the stat sheet, Cofield was the only Dlineman with a tackle. Also, I think time of possession was somewhat of a factor. We nearly doubled their TOP.

Also within the defense Cofield looked very average today i.e. no impact out there. Why didn't Nield get more action today?
I think in the second half, the Cards took advantage of our banged up secondary to run the ball. They came out several times in the spread, and given the status of the secondary, we didn't pressure much and defended the pass trying to contain Fitz. Of course, they ran the ball very well against our spread defense. If Wilson doesn't get hurt, we probably do a better job against the run.

Although NTs are not supposed to be flashy on a 3-4, I do agree with you that Cofield has looked very average. I'd be curious to see what the folks that review the games can say about his play. I just hated seeing getting manhandled by the Giants' rookie center last week.

I agree completely, sometimes you gotta give credit to the other teams play caller.

If it felt like Cofield did little in this game, thats partially because he didn't play a whole lot.

But Arizona could pass as much as they wanted as long as they could block him one on one.

Arizona ran 3 times in the first half, so if Haslett was going to think they would come out and try to shove it down our throats, he would have been totally guessing. I don't like it when halftime adjustments are total guesses in the dark.

The truth, in my opinion, is because the onus was on the Cardinals offense to change its approach, the Redskins needed to have more than a 3 point lead at half and kicking off based on the way they dominated. It's too easy to go in at half and find one thing about the defense you can attack.

The Cardinals did win the halftime adjustments, but that's to be expected when the Redskins were utterly schematically dominant in the first half. The only place to go for the Cards coaches was up, despite the score.

Hightower isn't as good in pass protection as we've all been lead to believe. He's adequate at best, but he doesn't exactly go and stick people.

What offense? Romo hurt, Jones hurt, and Austin out. Bryant also hurt. We should be able to beat them. F Dallas.

This is concerning me a little bit because I was never a believer in Cofield as our NT. I think he'd be a helluva DE, but not a NT. I hope he improves, because his job is to take on two blockers and allow our LBs to go for the kill. I think his performance has been disguised a bit by Haslett's scheming and the great pass rush created by Rak and Kerrigan.

I watched the game yesterday and was looking for Hankerson, but it did not appear that he got on the field. Did anyone see him play? I dont think he was on the inactive list was he?

Red zone offense: 2 for 7? Not good. Next point ties into this.

Bad Rex Grossman: The second pick wasn't his fault but the first one was, and as well all know turning the ball over in the red zone is a BFD. We're lucky it didn't matter in the end, but it very easily could've.

2nd half defense: They ran roughshod over us in the second half. Now 2nd half injuries to our corners didn't help, but we could be looking at a different outcome if they had ran the ball a little more at the end.

Feel free to add to this, this is just my preliminary list.
Agree with the Gano kick- apparently the media does also
Quote:
*There was clearly a malfunction in what resulted as Campbell’s blocked field-goal try on Gano’s 30-yard attempt. Campbell was basically unblocked when he stormed through the line.
Redskins-Cardinals: Instant analysis

Red Zone: I'm not sure if it was the play calls or what but it needs fixed. On to your next point.

Rex Grossman: The only complaint I had all day was Rex seemed to be throwing a little high. It's better then McNabbs dirt balls but it leads to possible interceptions. I don't blame Rex for either of his two interceptions. On the first it looked to me like Moss cut in and was supposed to immediatly cut back out for the reception, however after Moss cut in it appeared he lost his footing, slipped, or something and tried to dive for the ball. On Rex's second interception Rex did throw too high but the receiver (whom I thought was TE Davis) tipped the ball up. I'm not sure if Davis could have jumbed, dived or whatever but all he did was put his hand up and tip the ball then failed to try and run over the defender for the ball.

2nd half defense: For a group that probably gets very little practice time together with the 1st stringers I'll commend them. However we definitly need a FS who can run sideline to sideline and knows where to be.

OL: did a great job of creating holes for the RB's.

WR: err Moss did a great job. Hello do we have any other WR's? Armstrong, Austin, Hankerson, Paul? Thankfully our TE Davis showed up again. Is there something wrong with Austin? he seemed to catch everything during preseason. I guess it's just the Moss show for now.

LB's and DL: superb. Awsome. Keep up the good work.

Re: Smoot Doesn't Lay The Smack Down (Mooby Does) (Redskins V. Cardinals)

On a side note with nit picking the team....

Is it just me or does it seem like the Center (whoever they are) is hiking the ball a little high? I guess I should just be glad he's doing a good job blocking but it looks like Rex has to jump up to catch the ball almost everytime before back peddling which to me looks to be waisting precious half seconds.
