Re: Redskin @ Rams: Break it down

For the redskins offense, they need to do more of the same that they did against New Orleans - mixing it up a little differently of course. The first possession might be a bit of feeling out because the rams may be prepared and doing things that the Shanahans need to adjust to. But hopefully the Shanahans come out yet another wrinkle of the offense that no ones seen before.

They need to also find Finnegan on every play because he likes to be aggressive and can be disruptive at times. Maybe on the screens, Trent Williams can focus on Finnegan to wear him down so he'll be less aggressive.

Re: Redskin @ Rams: Break it down

To me, this is the real test of the Redskins. We beat the Saints, turned a blowout into a nailbiter, etc. However, New Orleans is a strong offensive team. St. Louis is the type of team we SHOULD beat -- I want to see us beat them handily. I don't want to be on the edge of my seat for the last 2 minutes. We need to learn to handle our business against lesser teams and stop playing down to them. If we can do that, I will buy that this is a new Redskins team.

I think their D gives us some issues, and Jackson normally has a good day against us. Stop Jackson, hit bradford, safe plays on offense to keep the ball moving.

Hopefully we won't play down and hopefully Kyle will realize to put the dagger in while we can. Almost a minute left at the end of the 2nd quarter and we kneel on the ball? I remember there was a series towards the end of the 4th where we just ran the ball 3 times and punted it away. I was like, really? We weren't up by so much that run, run, run, punt seemed like a viable option. I'm not saying we need to throw in situations where we obviously don't, but at least keep the other team guessing, don't just roll over and have the defense try to win the games for you. We know how well that's worked out in the past.

Yeah. We don't finish well. We've been moving the ball great, don't change anything. Giving a hot offense multiple chances to catch up, in my opinion, is a poor move. You may not take time off the clock with an incomplete, but those short passes could have kept their defense honest.

I'm calling it now. Cortland Finnegan will get into a fight with probably Pierre (second choice Morgan)

St. Louis has Steven Jackson, and sam bradford. They're more competitive, but our offense should put up some big points on them.

Their LBs are improved though with Dunbar, Laurinatis, and other guy (Edit: Ohh Good ole Rocky McIntosh!).

Chris Long is their best DL by far.
Santana would be the obvious choice for a fight.

Re: Redskin @ Rams: Break it down

Banks got stabbed in the chest and is back...Finnegan's fists are nothing to him.

reminded me of playing against northwood from baltimore in pop warner. field had broken glass/trash/dirt, they'd grab a handful and toss it into your face at the snap.

Re: Redskin @ Rams: Break it down

Hi all

My very 1st post on the forum

IMO the form of Bradford for the Rams will determine the tempo at which they play. He had a good rookie year but then tailed of last and in Week 1 he looked half decent again.

OT: I am planning to come over from England to watch the 'skins against Baltimore at FedEx and need some help However i need more posts to open a thread....

HTTR!

Re: Redskin @ Rams: Break it down

I think we have to be careful with high expectations. The lions have a strong team and the rams almost beat them.Remember: the lions have stafford and Calvin Johnson on offense and a strong defensive line. Stafford needed a last minute td to win that game. I'd be happy if the redskins just win the game with RGIII looking good.

Re: Redskin @ Rams: Break it down

Yeah, there are no "gimme" games in the NFL. Especially us. We don't even know from our victory if the Saints are really as good as they were last season, or if this is the year they take a nosedive.

We started 3-1 last season, then lost the next 6 games. That's the team we are until we prove everybody wrong.

I hope our team plays with the same urgency they had most of the first half, and we treat this game with the Rams as seriously as we would the Giants or Cowgirls. Hail!

Welcome to the Warpath! Once you settle in and get used to how it is around here, (as well as have the minimum amount of posts to open a thread), feel free to ask your question pertaining to coming to America to see the Redskins play Baltimore. A good place to discuss that topic would be the Redskins Meetup forum, which is where we usually discuss things like attending the game, ways to get there, advice for first-timers, etc. Please take note we have multiple forums for all different topics of discussion, not just the main Redskins board.
