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.

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

Secondary - take your pick. CB is a glaring need on this team. Unless we get consistent pressure good offenses will light us up like yesterday. Never thought I could miss Carlos so much.

Run D - we can't stop the run. More specifically we can't stop quick, speedy, dinky, inside runs. Our D-line is invisible. Everyone else overpursues. Apparently Rak has only one move - straight beelines to the QB. If he's asked to do anything else it's usually a disaster. Anyways this is bad, we won't stop anyone until we can contain the run.

Jamaal Brown - hate this guy... luckily he's signed thru 2015 Can we get Heyer back?

You know I was thinking this morning- Locklear looked pretty darn good yesterday filling in for Trent, even though his natural position is RT. I wonder if Shanny would consider starting him over Brown at RT when we get Trent back from injury? IMO it would be an upgrade. Brown just hasn't been the guy we hoped he'd be.

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

Locklear's a natural RT? I thought he was an LT? Anyhow, I think we've done quite a solid job running the ball to the right side and JB has played no small part in that. His pass blocking has left something to be desired, though

Agree about the run blocking but both Rex and Beck have gotten splattered because of his lack of agility and poor feet in pass pro.

And I thought Locklear was a RT the majority of the time he was in Seattle? Walter Jones was the LT most of the time he was there, right?

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

We got bigger holes to fill this offseason. Oline I think has been relatively strong this year. Always could use stronger interior depth, but Big Mo, Cook are getting opportunities to solidify that now. Locklear is a very solid player and was an excellent pick up by shanny and bruce

Yeah I guess he kind of bounced back and forth. Though he was actually drafted to be a guard

Just watch his A+ effort on that play. What can't Riley do that he's doing right now? lol

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

I'd like to smack down our organization as a whole over the last 5 seasons against rookie QB's. Since 2006 we've played 7 games against rookie QB's. Our record? 0-7. Massive fail. We've lost to everyone from Cam Newton, Joe Flacco, and Sam Bradford, all the way down to Bruce Gradkowski. Eeesh.

This is why I mentioned in another thread that we will lose to Ponder and the Vikes later in the season.

Maybe Ponder gets nicked up and McNabb has a chance to get his revenge...and fail to do so.

Locklear = Todd Wade 2.0

In all seriousness though Brown has a been a big reason for the success of the running game this year.

F- i didnt watch the game but the highlights i saw, there were a few more including Landry that could have put forth more effort. Do you think Hasslett can really get his guys jacked up to play defense, i dont think so. I try to like him but he just looks like a dumb ass.

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

I don't think I have really seen our team come out looking to just crush someone. We don't seem to play with the kind of intensity -- for 4 quarters, anyway -- that characterizes the play of winning teams. There are individual efforts, of course, to the contrary (as in, everything from London Fletcher), but it's just not enough. Our team doesn't seem to have a killer instinct.

To illustrate this point, look what the Chiefs did to the Raiders. That drubbing not only underscores the importance of the QB position, but it also shows what even a bad team (and the Chiefs are a bad team) can do to a better opponent when they turn it on and never let up. Can ANYONE recall the last time a Redskins team totally dominated an opponent the way the Chiefs manhandled the Raiders? Or the Saints over the Colts? I honestly cannot remember.
