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

Look, shit happens. One bad play, one bad call. You can't win em all. Not the end of the world. This team will beat the Rams.

The Ravens, The Steelers...lots of really good defenses have been getting torched this year. I know this sounds crazy, but I think we're overreacting to one game.

1. Coaching. Haslett is awful, just awful. I've never had faith in his ability and definitely believe he was very lucky in the first two games. How can you leave Hall alone in coverage (no safety back there)? How can your blitz calls continually get picked up by one of the worst offensive lines in the league?

I honestly can't say whether we have the right personnel for the 3-4 scheme yet, and toward the bigger picture I think there's still an argument to be made this coaching/FO regime was stupid to make the switch away from the 4-3 when and how it did, but regardless Haslett isn't a winner. He's making stupid calls and taking stupid risks in his 2nd season...again, Hall in lone coverage and no safety help in a close game.

The coaching on the offensive side of the ball isn't much better. Shanny didn't stay committed to the run and let the offense get predictable.

2.) On the player side I don't have a problem giving Beck a shot. Rex is sinking (comfortably) into his bad old habits of forcing lousy passes on not protecting the football.

Jammal Brown is also in the dog house, but altogether I don't think this oline has anything to brag about. Again it begs the question of coaching/FO decisions. Why do we have the guys we do on the line in Bruce and Mike's second season?

I remember thinking last year how disappointing the new regime was in light of a championship level coach returning from a hiatus i.e. you'd expect a solid plan that produces results. This season isn't much different. Defensively, unless Orakpo and Kerrigan have great games we're very mediocre. We faced an absolutely terrible offense tonight and they scored more points than we did. Offensively, we (still) don't have a solution at QB and (still) don't have a dominant possession receiver. And most importantly we still struggle to put points on the board when it matters.
Good god, Seriously?

Are we STILL going to second guess the switch from the 4-3? Dude, it happened. Get over it. At least it was done in year one of the Shanahan era when they're rebuilding anyway.

And Haslett? He had their offense stymied for most of the game. Didn't allow a TD. By the way, we broke Romo's team record 20-game TD streak. Yeah, the 3rd and 21 bites, but that's what Romo does -- he improvises, and makes things happen when it looks like all is lost. He's done it throughout his career.

The way things were going, we could have rushed 2, had 9 guys in coverage, and Romo still would have found his guy for the 1st down -- sometimes it just isn't meant to be. We could have seen that coming with the way every single botched snap was recovered cleanly by them. If it was the other way around, we'd have lost at least half of those snaps.

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

After the night to sleep it off... If this was not the Cowboys on National TV, I wouldn't be/have been half as mad as I am.

We're not going to win them all. Rex has to protect the ball better, though. I know that's his MO, and it comes with the territory, but this is three weeks in a row that the game could have swung on one of his turnovers (and last night it did). That has to get better. I'm certainly not pinning the whole game on him, but this is why he has not had the real chances in the NFL.

Overall, through 3 weeks, I think if you asked everyone on the board if they'd take 2-1, they'd have taken it an run. I still feel good about where we're at.. we've outplayed the Giants, and I think we played better than Dallas last night (albeit beat up)...

Win or lose last night, we'll know if these are different Redskins next week. The Rams stink. They're not good, and if we want to be thought of as a good football team, we'll roll in there and take care of business and go into the bye and get ready for Philadelphia.... I wish I was confident this would happen, but I'm more hopeful than confident.

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

And my biggest Smack Down goes to D. Hall... did he play all that poorly, no... but I don't think he played well, and when you open your mouth all week, I'm gonna judge you way harder than I do anyone else... and your BS during the post game does not help my opinion of you either. Just shut up and play dude....


And good god, our field goal unit... like I dont know who I want to blame. Against the Giants its Gano, against Arizona its the line, against Dallas its the holder... the truth is, if that field goal last night does not get blocked, we probably win. Thats a huge 6 point swing. I know that we're not going to hit every attempt we take... but my god these ones which are 40 yards and in, cannot keep ending like this. Its a mess. I'll blame Danny Smith I guess, but this is football 101. Get that together.

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

After a nights sleep, I still don't know what to think about this game. The cowboys had way over 5 "fumbles" (if you count the bad snaps). Only one went to the redskins. The skins couldn't get anything going offensively, but they did put points on the board and the game's only touchdown. The 3rd and 22 play was unfortunate, but they did an all out bitz and didn't get any pressure: that's going to leave someone open. Defense did well otherwise. The one poor special teams play a game reared its head again, but then Gano hit FGs from all over the place -- even a 50 yarder. I would have felt comfortable getting him in position to win the game.

I'm not going to have a knee jerk reaction (the only one that I did was deleting every facebook friend who was a cowboy) about how this team will do this season. Ugly game, cowboys found a way to win. Redskins didn't capitalize on mistakes. Still plenty of football left.

Next week is a poor Rams team. I think that is more of a test for the 'Skins then tonight was. If they dominate, don't let it be a last second ordeal, I think it bodes well that they can officially take care of bad teams.

I might try to. I'm miserable going to my current job anyways. If it paid well enough I'd just go back to cleaning up at an amusement park like I did in high school

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

Ugh, just woke up, first post without reading anyone else's stuff.

Last night boiled down to 2 main areas for me, redzone offense, and the FG unit which once again found a way to screw up.

Dallas was begging for a loss last night, disappointed we couldn't deliver.

What? People overreacting? NEVER :-) It was one game, granted it sucks because it is the Cowpukes but it is one game. We learn from it and move on. One thing that is very different about this team than teams the last three to four years is they really have a confidence that they can win. We are headed in the right direction, there will be some bumps along the way but that is part of the game.

We can overanalyze this to death, already are, but we aren't going to change the outcome. Time to drink some coffee and start thinking about St Louis.

Last night was a chance to make a statement and we didn't. Would rather have been 2-1 with the loss coming to Aruzona

I see we're back to normal today. Looks like the usual suspects are out in full force. The bus is pretty crowded underneath it. lol

Agree completely.
If I were the Cowpukes I would be worried about the ineffectiveness of their Red Zone offense. Granted we were not great but neither was Dallas.
