Exactly. Its amazing how for years we know and see that the only thing for sure about a preseason game is that the final score is meaningless. Pre season records and regular season records never match up, yet people want to take such stock in the play. All they are is glorified scrimmages where coaches and players get to try things at game speed. I take zero stock in it. I want them to stay healthy and build confidence. I think you are absolutely rite. Wait until they mean something than well see what we got with rg3 and this team.

So maybe to make you understand my point i will pose you this question. What if this were a regular season game and we were in dire need of a first down on this play - does rg-3 wait for davis to take a couple steps and squeeze the ball in tight coverage giving davis s chance to lunge for the first? Does he try and run for the first? Or does he air it out into double coverage?
I get what you are saying about Griff just wanting to air it out, I just don't agree *shrugs*.
Its okay that we have different takes on that play, its all healthy discussion.

In a real game? Imo I don't think he throws it Davis because the LBs are looking right at Griff and Davis. So if Griff continues to look and wait while for Davis to cross the face of the MLB the MLB is going to run with Davis and make sure Davis does not get across his face and the other LB is probably gonna beat feet and try to close the distance in a trail position. Zones defenders are often taught to spot drop to depth (often they drop back the same number of steps as the QB) then pattern read and let the QBs eyes take them to the play.
That's why zone works well against rookie QBs because they tend to eye ball their first read.

Like the other poster said I trust what Griff saw on that play.


To answers the rest of your question under ideal circumstances Griffin (a) makes a better throw to Moss (b) scrambles for the 1st or scrambles to make a play (c) pulls a savvy vet move and pump fakes to Moss thus freezing or wrong footing the LBs then throws it to a Davis who is now actually wide open

20% of the O-Line is in the top 10. The other 80% would struggle to start on other teams.

Re: Redskins at Bears Post Game Thoughts

Didn't want to start a new thread for this question.... Has anyone heard if they are going to move Crawford up and let him play against the first team? Might be a question for SS or Matty??

I would love to see what he could do against first teamers! He's played very well during the preseason!

You mean this weekend I assume.

Yes on Chester
Think so on Polumbus, though not sure
No decision yet on Morris/Royster, but ER probably starts Saturday since he's likely the starter on opening day

I hear that. We can agree he has to make a better throw to Moss no matter what his intentions were. One thing i will say is i dont think Griffin is your typical rookie qb. Hell campbell used to stare his receiver down well past his rookie year. Lol.

So it is just shaping up for Alfred Morris to swoop in and rush for 1,500 yards this season.
