I don't think either pick came in the RZ today

:confused: I agree. His first pick wasn't even in the redzone, it was on the opposing half of the field. His second pick was on our half of the field. That doesn't show a redzone problem, that shows a pick throwing problem. And that's being kind considering the first pick was Moss' fault.

That first pick was ALL Moss, except that your average fan just reacts without looking at the whole picture. The ball hit Moss right on the hands, he should've caught that.

The second pick was ALL Rex.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Rams)

Didnt get to see the game,but from reading the comments seems most people think Kyle is doing a piss poor job playcalling.This is exactly the reason I didnt like this hire.Were stuck with kyle so long as his Dads the coach,nepotism at its finest.
At the start of the season I voted for Rex to be the starter,now I wouldnt mind seeing what Beck can do.At 3-1 its not going to happen.
While I wouldnt say Rex caused us to lose last week,he did keep us from winning,if that makes sense.If he doesnt fumble we have a good shot at the fg,he should have been holding the ball better,no question.From watching the replays the int he did throw today that was his fault was terrible but it looked like somehow our defense bailed us out and kept the Rams from scoring,so he lucked out there.
Also,Matty why was the gameday thread closed,did I miss something,ive never seen that before?

I thought the play calling was fine. People wanted to run, well we ran.

Other than the constant bootlegs, which are only good in small doses, I didn't have an issue with it. And in hindsight putting the ball in Grossman's hands with the lead late in the game that led to the pick that was his fault, well that was a bad call, but at the time I completely understood it. That's just the aggressiveness of his playcalling, which I want in a offensive coordinator. The only problem is the personnel don't really fit the aggressive scheme (I'm looking at Grossman here).

Rex is capable of playing better. Not sure what his problem has been of late, but I think he knows he needs to get it in gear.

Right, because every dad spoils his son and never punishes them. Mike has an ego, and I doubt his son has had no experience of Angry and Competitive Mike.

Because at the end nobody was talking about the game.

True, but I think Rex works better when you don't put all the pressure on him. He's never gonna be the "put the team on his back" type, and I think you need an elite passer if you want to be aggressive all the time in this league.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Rams)

Listening to the post game, Al Galdi suggested that "this is who Rex is. This is who he has always been. Capable of great games and NOT so great games". I think that pretty much says it all.
BUT if the Shanny's really thought JB was ready, he'd be in.
On the good side, we're 3-1, leading the division and going in to the bye. This Rex/Beck....thing will not have much merit next year.......
If if I were Kyle S, I would seriously be calling games to take ALL the stress off Rex as is possible as 3rd and long...ain't a long term path for success with Rex.
HTTR!

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Rams)

All has been pretty much covered but I'm especially perplexed w/ Banks still having a job. With three very solid RBs in rotation why don't we have one guy on KR? And Niles Paul could do PR right?

...frees up a roster spot...for Curry

yeah kinda sums up my feeling with Rex.

See my biggest effing problem is I like to see my players get better as the season goes on....Rex started great and progressively gotten terrible.

Pull up the numbers today, it frightenly bad how Rex played. Silver lining is we still won...but his play just keeps getting worse. Play like that on the road vs any other team woulda resulted in a lose.

I kinda expect Rex to play much better against St. Louis, that play today was sincerely "old, bad Rex". I dont like that guy

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Rams)

Might be time to give Paul or someone else a shot on returns, but I don't think the blocking has been anything special either.
