Totally agree with you. But in other games I have not seen a decent 2 min drill out of this team. I was screaming at the TV watching the OL slowly get up, slowly walk to the huddle, slowly walk to the line, and not hike the ball for like 10 seconds. Or they didn't huddle and would slowly walk to the line and stand there looking around, the WR would trott back to the LOC, slowly set up and again waist 10 seconds with out hiking the ball.

I just didn't get it. Maybe they just are not there yet as a team, maybe it will come next year, but what I'm afraid is this is just not the coaching staffs style. I'd like to see a team put on this field that acts like the Colts when they are down and run a no huddle and win a game but for whatever reason the Skins never have this. It's always slow and methodical.

Shanahan should show the team the 4th quarter of the Pats/Cowturds game. Brady was running a semi-no-huddle the whole quarter, and was running a straight up no-huddle at the end. The Cowgirls defense was gasping for air at the end.

Definitely true. As a whole though, if you can hold that offense to 20 or less, you've got to win that game. Especially if it's the second half you shut them down in. Unacceptable to not score 21 against that Defensive. I said before the game that if we did 3 specific things that we would win 21-17. We only did 1 of them and the big one was Rex playing mistake free. The definitely did not happen and we still had a shot their at the end. Not to impressed by the Eagles Dream Team. We should beat them next time.

I hope for everyones sake Beck comes and lights it up if they decide to go with him because half of you are not happy with Grossman and are Beck lovers and if he lets you all down..... your going to be very dissapointed/ dipressed and the rest of us will hear how this team sucks and the coaching staff needs to go. Instead of trying something different like continuity.

and this might be what the Skins will have to do in order to keep the cowboys off balance. I know the quick score puts your defense right back on the field but if we can get up by a couple scores then maybe we can slow the system down and run, run, run to eat up clock and give the defense a break. Especially since this is supposed to be a pass first offense.

Changed the game ...

I want to send a thank you letter to Jim Harbaugh for acting like he just lost his virginity after the 49ers beat Detroit. Even though it's was a minor altercation, the media eats that stuff up and it dominated headlines. I was prepared for the usual 30 minutes of Mike Vick praise and oral favors given by Tom and Boomer. Thank god for over zealous hand shakes.

I'll leave that up to the coaches. But at some point they have to get these guys on the field. Maybe when we're out of playoff contention.

I'm expecting Payton Manning from either Grossman or Beck in the second yr of their tenure, no huddle offense drive the ball and we get more McNabb...... huddle up.... huddle up...... huddle up. Fail on the 2 min. drill.
I was annoyed by that too, and Fox's commentators noted it as well. Gotta figure that it was largely due to Beck not having regular reps w/the 1st team. Still, your backup should be able to come in & run the 2 minute offense. I wonder if Shanny was trying to give the D more rest & figured that Beck would be more successful at the regular pace.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down

"The other three interceptions, I'd have to go back and watch them again, but from what I saw it was all on Rex. All on him trying to make a play. And why was he trying to make a play? Because of...."


I would point out on the one to FD in the redzone was his fault as well. I noticed watching the game he stopped and let the safety move up. He needed to keep his route going and cross the safety, which is where Rex threw the ball. I know he threw 4 picks, two of which should not have been. THe last one on the side line, I haven't seen from the angle he had, but it looked pretty bad.

Saying that, I wouldn't make a change in QB this week. I still think Rex is the starting QB. There were SEVERAL drops as well that would have kept drives alive. Unfortunately Rex and all other QB's take the heat most of the time. I'd say give him a half, see how he plays and if its not good or he is still pressing and making bad decisions, then you put Beck in for the entire 2nd half.

By not switching him now, it may give him a little needed confidence. If he believes the coach has his back, and isn't benching him then maybe he'll have a hell of week and play really well. Time will tell. Who knows what the Shanny's have in mind.

It makes very good sense to start Beck at Carolina. IMO.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down

The first INT.. If you watch, he has Moss 1 on 1 underneath and it looked like Moss was going to be wide open.

True. But it is also true that on the first INT, if Davis had just fought for the ball at its highest point, he likely would have had a touchdown.
