Re: Redskins at Saints Post Game Thoughts

I think the team as a whole did a outstanding job. The OL, the defense, the WRs, and especially RGIII. Not only that, but Kyle did a hell of a job play calling today. Mike had these guys prepared to play and it showed. The talent level on this team is so much better than it was 3-4 years ago. That much is certain.



My only two gripes about the game are Kyle going conservative at the end of the first half instead of pressing like he did that whole half, and the continued failure of blocks on Danny Smith's special teams.

He did have a nice run back negated and everytime he touches the ball i think hes going to break one. Slite issues with holding onto the bAll but i dont think its a major issue.

I sorta think Spags sucks. He had one ok defense that got in the playoffs the year they won a SB and what else have his defenses done?

Re: Redskins at Saints Post Game Thoughts

My thoughts after watching a game that the so-called ESPN experts said that the Saints would crush the Skins.

1. Great Team effort... Skins actually looked like a really good NFL team for a change.

2. RG3 looked like he has been playing in the NFL for years. Confident and showed he can throw long, short, and both hard and touch passes.

3. Too many people here putting blame on Danny Smith... last time I looked he wasn't out there missing a block on a punt, he wasn't making illegal blocks in the back, etc. All teams have these players that make dumb plays... it's football.

4. Was great to see Skins open up in shotgun and sticking with it in the beginning. Huge success with those WR screens... why did they stop running those for the rest of the game??? If something is working great, keep running it until the other team can stop it.

5. Too many running plays for RG3... half the number would be better.

6. Need to figure out how to close out games better. Only the Skins can dominate for most of the game and still have it come down to the last play. Game should have been over much earlier.

7. Best offensive game calling than I've seen in years from the Skins... Think they really shocked the Saints by having every play work so good in the first Qtr.

Number 6 is the only thing that bothers me. There must have been three times i felt safe only to start sweating again. I think kyle took his foot off the pedal way to early mainly our last drive with 1:30 run run run punt at end of half resulting in the blocked punt td You cant protect a 10 point lead against drew brees in the dome....ever.
Rg-3 talked about number 4 after the game. I was in a loud bar but thought he said the saints had figured it out and they started working the middle of the field than which led to more big plays. Hell you take awAy the blocked punt, the bad penalty by madieu williams and the very strange blown coverage where ( was it griffin?) that pulled back at like the ten yard line for some reason and that was a blowout. Game was so much worse than the score. Im goin to the cincy game and fully expect to be three and 0 driving back to new jersey with a big fat smile on my face.

In all fairness did any of us really think we were going to do what we did today. Not hoped or wished but actually thought it was going to happen. I felt like i was dreaming watching that game. Im still afraid im going to wake up on sunday sept 9th in the morning! Lol.

I knew the skins would win, but the RGIII performance was much, much better than what I expected. I still say a 10-6 record and in the playoffs.

Re: Redskins at Saints Post Game Thoughts

I noticed two things that haven't been mentioned too much:

1) I have always believed a team becomes good when you start to not have just one good running back or one good WR, but you get a bunch of guys that do different things very well. It seems that Kyle has that kind of arsenal now: Helu can run a backdoor screen, you have a bruiser in Morris, Robinson has the speed, Garcon is physical and has some jets, Paulsen is a great blocker but can be snuck into formations, etc. And not to mention having the guy under certain have the athletic ability to roll, fake and the arm to make the throw.... yeesh.

Just making a one game comparison to the Gibbs 2.0. regime shows some positive signs. It use to be stack 8 in the box to take away Portis and then double Moss. You won't be able to do that with the athleticism on the field. It might end up being a pick your poison situation by the end of the season, and wouldn't that be sweet for a such an offensively starved team.

2) Man have there been some good finds in the past three drafts. Not including 1st or 2nd rounders, the skins had Riley, Helu, Gomes, Paul, Royster, Robinson, and Morris all contributing. It's good to see some of the later draft picks starting to make an effect on the game. Not to mention the good choices of Griffen, Williams and Kerrigan. It's hard not to believe that there won't be a couple surprises from this year's draft from later picks.
