63 points allowed in two games is probably not overreaction though. The defense did some good things today, but ultimately, it's Haslett's job to make adjustments. Can't expect to win a lot of games giving up 30+ points per game. Going against Drew Brees, you give him a pass. Going against Sam Bradford? Ehhhh....no, he needs to take some blame.

Re: Kudos to Jim Haslett and Raheem Morris

Perhaps Haslett, like me, kept waiting for the front 7 to start dominating like they should have. They should have had Bradford on his ass all day long. Our front 7 did not show up for the game.

Re: Kudos to Jim Haslett and Raheem Morris

For me, it was the lack of adjustment. It wasn't like we were content to play zone and tackle them after a five yard pass, we decided to let them complete a ten yard pass then go make the tackle. I mean, I'm not huge football mind, but wouldn't the zone defense be against a team with beast WRs that can outrun you and make plays down the field? The Rams are definitely not that.

Not only that, Bradford's STRENGTH is beating the zone and being accurate on the short stuff. Don't know why we didn't change it up earlier.

Anyway, speaking of accuracy, how about that deep bomb to Hank?! Awesome. Felt like it's been years since we last saw that.

You know I thought that, but the Rams had a solid game plan. Shift the pocket some and do quick drops. We didn't even have time to get there...

True, but maybe when Danny F*cking Amendola racks up 130 yds in the first half, maybe he should have made changes.

Re: Kudos to Jim Haslett and Raheem Morris

Haslett called an amazingly bland and predictable game today. It was so frustrating, especially because the answers seemed so obvious to us. No adjustments made either.

Bottom line.

This isn't a good front seven when Orakpo is on the sideline. He makes the difference.

If not for that one 50 yard catch and run, the entire 15 play series of throws to Amendola would have been a giant waste of time. If you excuse that one as poor execution, there was no reason to change anything because of Amendola.

16 targets for Danny Amendola is more about the state of the Rams offense than the Redskins defense.

I'm not sure what adjustment can be made when defensive players who should be winning their match-ups don't do so.

Re: Kudos to Jim Haslett and Raheem Morris

I thought the line did a fine job honestly. I mean when he's getting the ball out that quick, there's not much you can do. It's the fifteen yard cushion we were giving to EVERY receiver that I had an issue with.

One of the things that surprised me was the announcers brought up 2 or 3 times Bradfords quote about having an answer for everything the Skins did on defense. Yet they forgot to put two and two together in that McIntosh was probably the one that gave them those answers, in spite of the fact that they also pointed out during the broadcast that McIntosh was a former Skin.

Good teams make adjustments every week. If Rocky was able to give the Rams good intel, shame on us if it was effective.

Shame on rocky if he gave them our playbook.

Going from a zone and giving up a huge cushion for the Wes Welker clone and not switching up and playing more man and bumping the guy at the line. They let him go and he burnt the defense. Regardless of the refs and the bonehead move of Josh Morgan, ultimately, the defense has to keep the other team off the scoreboard. That's what lost the game of us.

Wow, it didn't take long for the defense to play like a vagina. Same game as last year...seems they didn't learn anything.

I agree with the idea that we should have been more physical with Amendola at the line.

That said, whether playing man or zone, we still would have gotten burnt with our front 7 exerting so little pressure against a lame-ass Rams line.
