Hey, FWIW.
The o-line definitely exceeded my expectations today. Both sides we're rolling up the defense when we committed to the run, and Beck had time on several drop-backs. For a reshuffled group I was impressed even accounting for a lousy Carolina defense. This loss goes on our defense and maybe our playcalling to go away from the run game so early.

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

Two consecutive weeks the team did not appear to be prepared to play. Shanahan's responsibility is to get the team ready, they were not ready today and the Panthers took advantage. I give them credit. The negatives are always highlighted more in a loss than in a win. There were a few positives, just not enough.

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

Jamaal Brown for being Applewhite's bitch.

The entire defense except maybe Carriker. Terrible angles, poor tackling, no freaking heart. And Haslett. Barf. Also, if Kevin Barnes never plays another snap for this team I wouldn't bat an eye.

Jabar Gaffney was bad. Hankerson, that pick is on you son.

And finally, the injury bug. Two starting O-lineman, our best WR, our best RB, our team leader in Fletch, Cooley, etc etc. I know injuries are part of the game, but damn. That's tough to overcome, especially on a team with god awful depth across the board.

Goat, I wouldn't say Plax is "killing it" Great game today, but before today he was doing no better than Gaffney

Hey, FWIW.
Hate to come in here and go all negative on your insight, but he was blown out of the play on the sack of Beck on fourth down. With that said though, the rest of the time he played good.

I'm going to single out the receiving cast here. 1 for putting in a clearly not ready Hank at the end of the game, and 2 for any receiver who dropped a pass or made a bad play today. Way to let down your qb who hasn't played a reg. Season game since 2007.

Also agreed on the defense. Poor tackling, horrible second half adjustments by Haslett, and that loser Kevin Barnes. Very uninspiring play today. Props to Fletch for ballin even though he was very sick.

You really believe they didn't, at some point, say: this guy is mobile? The gull of some of warpath posters.

A smackdown on our enthusiasm.

A few weeks ago the defense was flying to the ball aggressively and with great energy. The offense had an up-tempo feel even when they were not objectively up-tempo.

What happened to our energy? Our bye has now lasted for three weeks.

Hmm, that's what I get for listening to Trevor Matich.

this oddly sounds like 2010......I am not saying fire Shanny but great coaches do not lose 2 straight after a bye week!

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

Beck played ok but nothing spectacular, the INT late in the 4th was a killer as they Skins still had a chance to win. I was stunned that the D couldnt stop Cam. In the end Carolina just had more athletic talent than the Skins.

I don't really know what's going on around the league after bye weeks. But I wonder how the new CBA rule that mandates four consecutive days off during a bye week is impacting things

Jabar Gaffney He doesn't suck. He's been, for the most part a very strong performer for us. But he made two costly errors (drop, then fumble) at the end of the first half that led to three key points-and more importantly killed any momentum for us-at the end of the first half. Of course, other receivers had poor drops but I'll just go ahead and single out JG

Playing Hankerson at the End Unlike John Beck, Hank really is a rookie. Playing his first NFL game ever, I'm not sure he's the guy they should have had in there and targeting at the end of the game

Josh Wilson WTF dude?! I had you pegged as a Stud this weekend!

Kevin Barnes Man, was I wrong about him. I thought he'd be Carlos Rogers with hands. Instead he's Ginger Rogers with two left feet. I haven't seen worse angles since my protactor broke. And so on...but seriously. He's suppoed to be one of the smartest, and most physical players on our D and he's just stinking up the joint week after week. I don't know why Buchanon didn't really play and why they still won't activate Kareem Moore. But if there's one area where I think we are very weak and just time won't help, it's our secondary. I've never been a "Oh no. We're 3-3. Everything must be blown up. We suck so bad" kind of guy...but changes need to be made pretty much asap to our secondary.

Jim Haslett Where was the zero blitz? Heck we barely blitzed at all. I know most people have a fear of zero blitz largely because of the Dallas play. But personally, I like the aggressiveness. And I understand that Cam is unlike any QB the league has seen in a long time. But it felt to me like we were playing soft against him. We should have attacked him more, give him different looks, etc. Rattle him. He's made plenty of mistakes, along with his great plays, in the beginning of this career. Seemed like we didn't really try to force him to make mistakes

Wasted Opportunities You shouldn't let a team beat you when they commit 15 penalties. You just shouldn't

You Yeah I'm looking at you. Your posts in the gameday thread are getting tired. Just shut up already....no don't worry, I'm not talking about you. I'm talking about you (I think we all know who you are)

Me John Beck looked a lot better than I expected. Actually, I think he looked poor in the first half. Made a lot of silly mistakes. But he really stepped it up in the second half. I'm pretty confident he can be effective for us for the rest of the year.

The Deep Pass Where was it? What was AA in the game for, if not to use him to stretch the field

Barry Cofield Was it just me, or did it look like he was just laying on ther ground there with the fumbled ball sitting right next to him? Just stretch our hand out and we get the ball
Pretty much sums it up. Wilson and Barnes simply got abused today. And after watching Wilson the last few weeks I'm really wondering why they signed him to big money. He's ok but that seemed like a bit of a reach money wise. Where's Carlos Rogers when you need him? lol.
