Very rational thought. Look around the league and you'll see franchise QBs can come from anywhere. They don't have to be high first round draft picks. Hope it's RG3, but if it turns out to be Cousins, so be it. I thought he looked great in the first game as well. Ideally, we end up with a Rivers-Brees situation.

I'm happy rg3 struggled. Lets see how he reacts. Fumble wasn't all his fault, RB didn't block the blitzer.

Cousins played against backups lolll.

Re: Redskins at Bears Post Game Thoughts

OL, OL, OL. In the first game the OL did pretty well but there was really no blitzes. The Bills kept it very plain. This game, to me it seemed, that the OL looked bad but the Bears did a ton more blitzing and maybe more movement prior to the snap. I tried to say it after last weeks game and will brin it up again.....I feel there is a possibility the coaching staff requested the Bills to play plain to give RG3 some in playing time to get used to the sloped of the game and basic looks to see how he would handle it, and the Bears game the coaching staff requested the Bears to use basic blitzes to see if RG3 would pick up on them and know where to adjust his OL, play call, and where his quick releases were.

Yes Cousins played against 2nd and 3rd stringers but he looked better, sharper, and more accurate then Grossman did against 2nd and 3rd stringers. I'd make Cousins the backup and develope both young QB's for the future, and let Grossman and Crompton challenge each other for the 3rd spot.

I think Banks ends up simply the PR/KR again. He has not shown enough at WR but we need his return skills. The top 4 WR slots are set Garçon, Moss, Hankerson, and Morgan. I think Robinson and Brisco get the last two. The rest get cut. The team has WR Hank on IR and AA....didn't he get injured also? Can they put him on that list that can come back after 8 weeks if healthy? And if everyone else is performing great then cut him. If we have an injury he could take their spot on the field.

Hurt was awful last night.

W/O fletcher this defense has no ...leadership?

Referees are F*N needed!!!!

Kyle Shanahan.

Rackers will you be our only kicker?

Banks/Cooley for an OL, any takers?

Rg3 and all 1st team just looked nervous. RG is taking unnecessary hits, sacks, and hits near sideline.

Cooley will never be a FB in this league- he just doesn't get look for contact the way a FB does in open space. If only VLeach respected the skins/Kyle more maybe he would have signed with us instead last year...

I'm just disgusted watching this weak porous OL and RG running around back there wobbly like a new born baby precious deer during hunting season.
I get it.....the baby precious deer is like a metaphor for RG3?
Well, maybe he'll be like Bambi who began as a precious baby deer and lost his mom and dad (I hope that didn't happen to Robert). Anyway, maybe he'll grow up to kick the shit outta' the hunter.....ehrr NFC East?
Well.....one can only hope.

People talk how bad our OL is then get mad when RG3 gets sacked 3 times. RG3 is a pocket passer first then scrambler second. RG3 was going to get hit sooner or later.

If you think about it, it really was our 2nd team OL against their all start 1st team defensive line.

I thought RG3 would make our Oline better? Is that not happening? Strange

Re: Redskins at Bears Post Game Thoughts

Last night looked like toothpaste on a dog turd. Bootlegs dont work unless you have a really good running game. Otherwise the DE's,OLBr's and Secondary can sit on the bootleg and see it coming a mile away. cause the interior Dline and inside backers can manhandle the skins oline.

Re: Redskins at Bears Post Game Thoughts

If I'd have posted last night, I would have been like OMGZZZ!111, but after a good night's sleep and some perspective, I was actually pleased with the play of all our depth guys with the exception of the offensive line.

You never know what you're going to get when it comes to preseason game plans. Did the Bears plan a little more? Maybe so. I thought RG3 looked pretty good as far as QBs go. Didn't get a lot of opportunities when he was running for his life. The passes he did complete I was very happy with.

Cousins looked great against backups, but you can only play the people in the game at that time and I thought he owned them. Good to see he was decisive and good to see Robinson and Briscoe step up.

In the end, Cedric Griffin is not a starting corner. Cutler just picked his ass apart. It was either a quick drop or max protect so that's part of the reason we didn't get there for pressure. I was STILL super pissed we lost over a freaking 57 yard field goal after how well Cousins did in the 2 minute drill.

Re: Redskins at Bears Post Game Thoughts

I am pretty sure the 91 team went 0-4 in the preseason. Good coaches use the games to learn what their players can, and cannot, do, and plan their regular season accordingly.

Looking forward to next week now!

Re: Redskins at Bears Post Game Thoughts

- Bears 1st Team played with more enthusiasm than the Skins 1st Team.

- For the first time, RGIII looked like a rookie. No worries, though.

- Cedric Griffin is terrible, just terrible. Why wait to cut him?

- The Skins should just pretend that Brandon Banks is a WR and keep him for his return talents. His PR TD put the Skins right back in the game at halftime after they had been dominated. He is capable of making huge ST plays. That talent is too valuable to throw away.

- Logan Paulsen is our only blocking TE (he weighs about 280 lbs.) and our OL is weak; therefore, he should make the team. Niles Paul is makes the team if Cooley is traded or hurt again.

- Morris and Royster are similar backs. We still need an explosive 3rd Down back.

- I like the way Meriweather plays the game - I hope he's OK.

- Josh Wilson is looking very good in my eyes.

I'M SWOONING!!!
I think.....At last a little...actual....sense regarding the team and the game.
Several second teamers (at the moment) shined last night. Some of our...current starters did not. Guess what can happen on a team that is still doing much rebuilding...Change.
Robert is a rook and there will be....moments. That's ok.
It's preseason...and for a team with some many unsettled positions, I to was happy about much I saw last night.
Can't wait to see the starting line-up this week.
HTTR.........

Re: Redskins at Bears Post Game Thoughts

We are an 8-8 football team at best, that's with a few breaks, we played a playoff contender last night for 2 quarters and they kicked our ass. RG3 is our starting QB, let that one go, no controversy what so ever. Kirk did fantastic against players who will not be in the NFL in a couple of weeks, as I said in previous threads, he needs to be our 2nd string QB. Rex gives us nothing except for a great game or 2, Kirk can get us a draft pick down the road with this type of play. If RG3 goes down, Kirk needs to play. Period. If we need to keep an extra TE or LB or what ever maybe you give Rex his walking papers because we are not making the playoffs no time soon.

I think Shanny was putting RG3 in some complicated situations just to see how he would respond. Square peg meet round hole when trying to run and play action against a 8 man box who is blitzing extra guys on every single play. He actually did quite well in those situations where he was set up, by our coaches, to fail.

Our defense was punked, nobody got pressure even when we blitzed. Pathetic effort! Cedric Griffin was abused! Cofield is still not big enough to play the NT spot.

Some youngsters came alive at bit but will need to show consistency to make the squad which was the highlights of the night if you are a Redskins fan. The starters have a bunch of holes and we are not close to having an offensive line that can compete in this league.
