Re: Skins v Rams pregame

last year, they whooped us in the 2nd half. They will bring pressure & that's what worries me. I think after monday's runless drives, Kyle will be looking to establish the run w/some creative looks, maybe a reverse here or there.

We seem to be abandoning the run inside the 20.

We're killing the league in time of possession and plays run...a sign that our run game has been good. Lets carry that success all the way into the end zone.

I would even let Helu carry more on the drives. He's a home run hitter. Hightower is a red zone stud. Lets use their strengths.

Week 1 Red Zone scoring: (scoring plays inside 20)
Hightower 1 yd run
Armstrong 6 yd pass
Gaffney 4 yd pass

Week 2 RZ scoring:
Gano 26 yd FG
Davis 1 yd pass
Gano 23 yd FG
Moss 18yd pass

Week 3 RZ scoring:
Gano 27 yd FG (snapped from 20)
Hightower 1 yd pass

This makes the passing game look good inside the 20, but it also looks like we're not running much in the Red Zone. These passing TDs are short-range.

Lets look at Rex's stats:

1st down - 47 pass attempts, 68.1% comp rate, 2 TD, 1 INT
2nd - 26, 69%, 1 TD, 0 INT
3rd - 36, 38.9%, 1 TD, 2 INT
4th - 2, 100%

Rex Grossman - Washington Redskins - Situational Statistics - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

Looks like we need to run more on 1st down. While Rex is on fire on first down, he's stalling drives on 3rd down. 2 of his 3 INTs are on 3rd down also, which is telling me he's becoming more mistake prone under pressure. Defenses are likely blitzing on 3rd down, which we know brings out the worst in Rex.

We have a great running/blocking scheme and a RB who is proven to be a TD specialist in the RZ in Hightower...we need to take advantage of this.

Re: Skins v Rams pregame

One thing down in the redzone in throwing, it looks like Rex making one read and if its not there he is throwing the ball away. Now let me state Im for Rex throwing the ball away and not throwing a pick which he has already done down there. But sounds like we need to get more receivers involved in the play.

I think the boyz did a good job of taking away Davis & felt they could cover the other guys 1 on 1. For the most part they did, at least long enough for their blitz to get to REx. Even when Rex had time, coverage was pretty good. i think we missed Armstrong more than we realize, he's really the only burner we have.

damn! Gus Johnson was scheduled to call our game, but they switched it to chris meyers and sam ryan. I was hoping to hear some loud screams and over excitement.

That is a perfect call man ... Look the Dallas loss was tough on ALL of us ... This aint the ol Skins', I keep telling myself that, the coaches tell us that, the players tell us that, they look & feel different, but with all that said this IS the game. this is the mother of all litmus tests IMO. I honestly thought Rams would be a pretty damn good team this year but they are falling apart, Stephen Jackson is literally falling apart. This is a game where we can set the tone with the running game, Hightower once again knows this team very well as he has faced them twice a year in AZ .. hell we should know the team .. 3-1 @ Bye week is all the team should be focused on. I BELIEVE this aint no 8-8 team, I think between the lockout, Shanny & Allen making GREAT moves in off-season, everyone on track, good young O=Line, top 5 defense (i don't give a shit about the dallas play) .. this defense knocks people on there ass and getting to Bradford should be the main focus .. I hope Haseltt calls the same damn blitz and this time D-Hall makes a play ... I know that's a ramble session but look this is it ... it's game time baby .. this is the game that changes people from "ehh the Skins' might be ok" to "the Skins have turned the corner and the NFC East is wide open"

THE Washington Redskins - 42
St.Louis Rams - 13

Hightower & Helu over 100

Rex .. SOLID 220 yds 2 tds 0 turnovers

Davis & Cooley catch TD

NFC EAST CHAMPS RG3 will be back & #12 can run the show until hes ready.We are young w depth. 23,59,89 will all be back.Alfred Morris aka Diesel Hybrid ! @DCtoAZ81 ...2013 NFC CHAMPS

Redskins -17

Re: Skins v Rams pregame

I am not saying shit in terms of a prediction. Rams are banged up, so were the Boys. Ram offensive line is shaky, the Boys O line sucks eggs. Can't win unless you score points. Until we pound the rock whenever we are inside the 10-20 yardline and add some rollouts(get fatboy to lose some damn weight for that) you will not improve our redzone blues. Add some misdirection plays also to get our TD production up. It is a joke that we have all of this young talent going to waste because of lame redzone playcalling.

Re: Skins v Rams pregame

The game will be decided by 3 points. We cannot put teams away, play with a lead, score in the redzone or depend on our field goal team, the blockers or the kicker. Our defense will keep us in it as usual, but I somehow see this Rams team really bringing the skins back down to earth. I hope I am wrong, but I see the rams winning this one, 23 - 21.

Re: Skins v Rams pregame

Rams aren't gonna win this one. You guys are seriously high.

Funny how one loss suddenly changes everyone's view and all the goodwill from the first 2 wins is gone.
