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

I'd like to lay some smack down to the NFL for the kick off rule. Did Banks even get one return yeserday? That rule has basically taken away our most explosive player. Might as well have just placed the ball on the 20 yesterday and not even wasted the time kicking it. Such a HORRIBLE rule. One of the annoucers said that touch backs were up 300%.

Quite aware of having to deal with it. But, I can feel as angry as I want about it even if I have to deal with it.

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

Haslett needs to run "how to recover fumbles" drill. How many balls have been on the ground this year we havent recovered?

I mean damn, forget Carlos' f*cking hands in years past, this has been a bigger disappointment.

Davis? If you ask me Davis was the turning point in the game. It was either 2nd or 3rd down in the 3rd and our O was starting to make some plays.Beck hit Davis going across the middle for what sould have been a first down but Davis drops the ball. We have to punt and we never had any momentum after that. I know that one drop did not cause us the win but its a play you have to make.

A good game isn't good enough -- you want to be elite, dude? Catch the passes that hit you in the hands EVERY TIME.

Furious about the whole effort. By the way, I disagree about Wilson. I thought he had very good positioning on Steve Smith most of the game, but between Cam's really well placed passes and Smith's crazy talent, it's just hard to stop, The bigger problem, in my view, is that Cam had all freaking day. All day. We had 4 sacks in the first half and then the pressure just stopped, and he picked us apart.

So frustrated.
I was going to post the same. Steve Smith is still a great WR. Wilson got his hand up w/in an inch of the ball to try & make the play at least 3 times. That's good coverage, but Cam & Smith executed those plays to perfection. The one on 3rd & 17 was sick for a rookie QB, that out is a tough throw.

Sadly, I would even say that Wilson outperformed our 2 best players on D; Rak & Landry.

My definition of building for the future involves a miracle whether through natural causes or an accident involving foul play where Synder is no longer the owner of the Redskins. The sooner this happens the better so we no longer have to choose between discussing whose fault this loss was and whether we are better off with Beck vs Rex.

So your blaming Dan for us having Beck and Rex as our QB's.

Washington Redskins vs. Carolina Panthers - Box Score - October 23, 2011 - ESPN


Yes he had one KR and one PR. Just face it. The guy hasn't done anything this year and is a waste of a roster spot at this point. The week prior he was taking kicks 9 yards deep in the end zone and not even making it to the 15 yard line. He's had plenty of opportunity and nothing to show for it at this point.

Well based on what he did last year. He needs more chances. But yeah, he hasn't done a damn thing this year but the rule isn't helping his cause either.

Well we were healthy against the Rams and Cards and barely won those game against two bad teams. That says a lot, doesn't it? Every team has guys hurt. Houston's two best players are out and they layed 41 on the road against Tenn. Dallas had Felix Jones out and the rookie back up rushed for 253. We need to get these young guys on the field cause even when we were 100% healthy we still were kinda average and just got by beating two bad teams.

Shannahan - this is what a QB prospect looks like. Not Grossman and damn sure not Beck.

I agree Banks needs to hit the bricks, the guy is doing nothing but putting us in poor field position. For the record he is still a fresh breath of air over ARE.

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

I think another thing worth noting is that Orakpo is completely useless aside from the two or three plays a game he either gets or comes close to a sack.

His tackling and play recognition at linebacker is brutal.. I love the guy, but we need more from our best player.
