Yeah that's what I mean, I think that game spooked Gibbs in to ultra-conservative mode.

I would tell Ramsey not to stare down recievers so much. Any good QB has the ability to lead defenders away with his eyes. Patrick seems to have all of the other fundamentals down. The ability to better read defenses will come to him in time...he has improved with picking up blitzes and hot reads... I would never second guess his accuracy and arm strength.

Funny how a big knock on Ramsey before this year was his accuracy, he took care of that problem pretty quick. Now he just needs to work on reading D's and his footwork.

Yeah, I mean he would have had a lot more long completions if people either would have A) not dropped the ball or B) he would have been about a foot longer or shorter with the pass. I was very impressed with his new decision making skills.

Gibbs won 3 Super Bowls with average quarterbacks. His system took a year or 2 previously to kick into gear...you are going to see a lot more of the old playbook come out this year. That's the problem...too many fans grow impatient when it takes longer than 3 quarters to be successful.

I would tell Coles to get back to 100% quickly
...tell Dockery to work hard and be ready to shine with the rest of the Dirtbags
...tell Snyder to give Smoot the damn money
...tell Taylor to keep it up, we need that kind of energy on the field, but "to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em"
...tell LaVar to be the leader of that defense, and take them to the top
...tell Sellars to stop making such bonehead plays on Special Teams

I really don't think that Gibbs' playcalling was that far off based on the situation we had. Do you really think that we had the ability to go downfield all the time with success? I sure don't.

If we had just let it go, and used a normal playbook, by now there would be no Ramsey fans around because everyone would blame him. Instead, Gibbs protected Ramsey, and has taken the blame for conservatism. But it has given Ramsey a chance to develop, which is what every quarterback needs.

The fact is the receivers and the offensive line were big problems. There was a big challenge with our running game because we couldn't get the ball downfield and the line was stacked against Portis. No running back would have gotten through lines stacked like that.

So Ramsey didnt have the running game to protect him either.

When you are faced with the kind of challenges we had, it was smart to be conservative. I think he may have taken it a bit far - but the general strategy of conservatism was the best approach in my view.

Yeah, I definitely agree also. At first, I was like "Why aren't you going downfield?!?" during the season and then I understood it was all to get Ramsey's confidence back up after his relief appearances.

I know we all hated Brunell, but I want to give credit where credit it due. If Musgrave DOES resurrect Brunell, we would have a hell of a quarterback. We all repress the memories of when Brunell was a damn good quarterback for Jacksonville. Ramsey doesn't possess that type of mobility but if Musgrave can mold him into the former accuracy that Brunell had, we're going to be doing just fine.

Gibbs has never backed down from blame.
That was one of the few GOOD things about this season.....Joe Gibbs always pointed the blame at HIMSELF......he did NOT pass the buck to the players........(although he did criticize the officials)

Well you have to remember in addition to learning about all his players, and a few new coaches (ie Williams), Gibbs was trying to get up to speed on the changes in the league from when he had coached so he was in a learning curve himself. He also sees a young QB that probably had lost his confidence a bit after having to eat turf last year after being treated like a rag doll by opposing team defenses.......so Gibbs starts out slowly.........a little to slow for the team and the Redskin fans........But that last game he opened it up a bit and SUDDENLY the future looks bright for next year after he started throwing long passes and trying new things on offense.
