Yeah, his avg YAC is terrible right now (1.8). This is a guy who was averaging over 7.0 YAC under Gibbs 2.0, and even managed 6-ish under Zorn. Last year he fell to barely over 5.

Lest anybody think that was a fluke of the new offense, Sellers had a 7.6 YAC average last year on 20 receptions. I think Cooley is just wearing down.

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

Man, I wish Kerrigan wouldn't of got caught in empty space on that big 3rd and 21. After re-watching the play a few times.. If Kerrigan actually keeps coming up field, then he hurries Romo into a quicker throw, or even gets a sack.

Instead he starts to back off and play coverage and it gives Romo more time to make the play down field.. I guess he finally showed his "rookie-ness"

Well, Kerrigan was one of the few guys on that play actually executing his assignment. Is it a better outcome if he just goes straight to Romo and leaves the back? Sure, but then he's not executing his assignment, and the back is uncovered.

Can we smackdown posts like this?

How could the third game of the season confirm your prediction that this is a 7-9 team?

How would you know what his assignment was? Looked to me like a 0 Blitz, and Kerrigan started to follow the back.. Didn't seem to be in man coverage with the RB..

But I guess we wont ever know.

Yeah, I think Kerrigan needed to do a better job of keeping contain. It looks to me like that was his job, not covering the back. I think that play is an unfortunate example of Kerrigan's learning curve.

Wayyyy back when, we got called for it once. It was when Antonio Pierce was still with the team. It was near the goal line and you could see AP's head moving as he barked out signals. Refs called him on it. It gave the other team a first and goal and they promptly scored.

I remember watching it and thinking "Damn, that was dumb!"

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

for comparison, and cause it's one of the things I can remember happily about the game, here is one of the ones from MNF. (i can't believe we didn't recover any of these )

I won't be able to review the game this week and haven't re-watched it. But if it's Cover 0, Kerrigan could have had responsibility for the RB to his side. That being said, it's another reason why Cover 0 is the absolute worst call in this situation. The best pass rushers on this team are the OLBs (or DEs in the even front), in 3-21 & protecting a 1 point lead, why in the hell wouldn't you want them in a postion to "pin their ears back" and get after Romo.

Overall Haslett called a good game, but this play was unquestionably a bad playcall I'm sure he'd like to have back....and if he'd make the same playcall again then it's MS's responsibility to dial him back in these situations.

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

good article on the 3rd and 21.
One blitz too many for Redskins - Washington Times

we have a very good 3rd down team, I think it was a bad call because I would rather have had everyone doing their "normal" duties. It made it seem desparate. That said, it had worked well twice before as the article states, so maybe you go for it in that situation.

I dont doubt that when SS33 reviews the game, he'll see they made the same play call as they did week 1 when Kerrigan made his interception. On that play Kerrigan was supposed to come in on the blitz but noticed the Giants, on 3rd and 11, audible to a rocket screen to the RB. Kerrigan saw that and dropped back into coverage to make the play. On Monday night, it seems he wrongly assumed the same thing would happen.

But why take such a huge gamble when you are only up by 1 point? If it is any other situation, I can understand the call and the logic of keep doing something that is working.
