You have to take into account his throwing time, they had amazing pass protection yesterday. It doesn't mean he isn't good, but the time he had to throw has to be factored in. He isn't mobile, and we didn't hit him nearly enough. There is no excuse for that, when you consider how average their offensive line is.

Let's not forget that Sam Bradford was the first pick of the draft a few years ago. He is a talented guy who has nothing around him.

Bradford is no scrub that's for sure. Gotta give him credit he got the job done.

Yeah, he carved up the secondary like a Thanksgiving turkey, and we never adjusted to it.

Was he not supposed to do that? :confused-

Re: Redskins vs Rams Postgame Thread

I just think it was more poor defensive game planning and adjustments than Bradfords qb ability.

Re: Redskins vs Rams Postgame Thread

Mike Pereira, the ref guy for the league, showed how when Fisher challenged the Stephen Jackson play that not only was the red flag a 15 yard penalty, since the challenge flag was thrown before the challenge was initiated upstairs the challenge is then disallowed and the call on the field must stand. The call was fumble and we got the ball. Instead the Rams kept the ball and kicked the field goal... we lost by 3 points...

Re: Redskins vs Rams Postgame Thread

Normally, I tend to blame the team for losses, even with a bad call because the team has already put itself in the position of one bad call losing the game...but that was THE WORST-OFFICIATED GAME I HAVE EVER WATCHED. All game long. It hurt both teams but we were definitely on the short end more often.

It was embarrassing. The NFL needs to do whatever they can to get the real refs back NOW. It's hurting their product more than anything else could.

With the bad refs combined with a dirty Rams team (Finnegan and Fisher), this game turned into a hockey game early on...fights, frustration...all fueled by the blatantly-bad and missed calls. These refs also seemed afraid to break anything up between the players.

The worst was that cheap shot on Fletcher, but he avenged it on the next play.

Usually my motto is that good teams find a way to win despite officiating, but yesterday's game is completely different. Can't excuse how those officials lost control of the game.

That is definitely true. What pissed me off more then anything was how many times a Ram player would push after the whistle, lay on a player for an excessive time,mouth off constantly or the 3-4 blows to the head.

The real refs would've stopped that early by throwing a flag each time. These non calls changed how the game was played from our side. They just missed the standard calls over and over again. Very frustrating game to watch...

Re: Redskins vs Rams Postgame Thread

I said on here a while ago, but I had the feeling every game is going to be a shootout for us this year. It's going to come down to RGIII outscoring our own secondary all season long. I love our offense. 40 and 28 points scored...we haven't seen this kind of scoring for ages. However, we've given up 32 and 31 points too.

Yesterday doesn't damper my excitement about this year's team at all though. We will still be dramatically better than last year.

I'm more angry about yesterday's game than disappointed or worried about the team. They played with a fire I haven't seen from the Redskins before. They were definitely furious about the refs and getting sick of the Rams' dirty tactics and cheap shots that the refs were allowing. Morgan's outburst was inexcusable but it was just a result of 60 minutes of frustration...we were playing against the Rams and the refs. I love the passion that Shanahan coaches with. He sticks up for his guys, even got in the middle of a brawl on the sidelines once.

I said to my wife during the game, "Coach Gibbs would never have allowed his team to behave this way, but I'm not saying it's a bad thing, I'm glad to see them fighting and caring about the game for once."

Janoris Jenkins and Cortland Finnegan are nothing but instigators....they've pulled some crap two weeks in a row. Fisher is an enabler too.

If he looked like he was giving a shit but we were still losing games in the fashion we lost yesterday would it actually make you feel better?

Good points by Keim. Especially these two points.


Quote:
4. Man, a lot of angry topics tonight. This one: special teams. Nobody draws more negative tweets on the coaching staff than Danny Smith. Itís the nature of the position; if thereís a hold on offense no one calls for Kyle Shanahanís job. But with so few plays on special teams in comparison, perfection is demanded. I get it. Smith has a good reputation around the league and has been sought after by other teams. All that being said, he deserves whatever heat comes his way right now because his unit has allowed two punts to be blocked after a season in which five field goals were blocked. Each one is explainable, but this is a bottom line business and the bottom line is that this keeps happening. Based on how the roster is put together Iím not sure how much consideration is truly given to special teams Ė look at how many receivers donít play it, for example. Thatís how you have DeAngelo Hall Ďvolunteeringí for special teams. Yeah, that deserves quote marks. But thatís not to absolve Smith. This is his unit and heís paid a lot of money to make it work. By the way, on the punt block, Perry Riley appeared to be the guilty party. Last week it was backup linebacker Chris Wilson who made the mistake. Thatís the troubling part, it keeps happening to different players.

5. Iíve never seen a returner get up and slap the ball, as if he were thiiiis close to breaking a long return as Brandon Banks. I admire his confidence but man. Itís almost every time. Need to ask him about this; itís not a criticism but it is something thatís noticeable. Oh, and you know a game will turn on one of his fumbles, right? Itís happening too much anymore.
So spot on with the Banks thing. Dude acts like every run he does is so close to breaking free, but that's hardly the case. Not even close to breaking any.

I reluctantly agree with Matty (as much as I liked blaming Vinny for everything, including global warming, and felt justified in doing so). Too many examples of coaches and GMs making turnarounds with little depth. Look at SF. Heck, I will bet the Rams finish near .500 this year. We have more talent on the roster than was displayed yesterday, and that is significantly on the coaching staff. I was "watching" the game on NFL.com, and I was struck by how many times with 3rd and 6, we'd get 5 yards. We had a LOT of 4th and 1 punts yesterday, and that's on Kyle and Mike. The special teams' debacles are too frequent, and that's on Danny. Our secondary was eaten alive -- that is on Raheem and Haslett (how we couldn't generate more pressure is beyond me). They may not be a strong unit, but the Rams have a very good QB and basically 1 receiver, and we could do nothing to stop them.

To be clear, there are individual failures aplenty to point out as well -- Morgan's dumb penalty, Robinson's drop; the list isn't short. And the refs did not distinguish themselves.

But the bottom line is that we've got an electrifying new QB who played reasonably well, but he needs folks (other than London "Mr. Consistency" Fletcher) around him to step up. And no one did yesterday. In his press conference, Griffin lamented the pick. Sure it wasn't a great pass, but he ran for 2 TDs and threw for the 3rd (and the other one was a defensive score). But we should still be competitive even if Griffin throws the occasional pick (which he will do).

We just have to play with more heart -- especially on D. If we can pick up a W against Cincy, that will be a nice way to bounce back from a disappointing loss.
