Re: Redskins vs Rams Postgame Thread

TW is fine at left tackle. In fact we get (imo) good push when we run to the left. Why mess that up? If we are just playing Madden or Fantasy, I will take Oher and put him at RT.

Re: Redskins vs Rams Postgame Thread

Robinson dropping the long bomb at the end. That would have resulted in (eventually, if not on that play) a TD and left us looking like world beaters, the entire WP forum would look different.

Possibly pink with unicorns and rainbows.....

Yeah running to the left has been much better than to the right, but I'll be curious to see how the stats look whenever somebody posts them. And the left side as protected well. The right side is consistently weak and it's on Polumbus.

Your question about who to get is a good one though, I mean it seems like developing a solid RT (over the last three years) as opposed to signing a FA, was necessary, but hasn't happened.

Would like to hear more on Gomes, cause he has looked decent. But he did mention the huge negative I saw which was his inability to get to the edge before the blocker got there on the 54 yard run. If he gets there he woulda forced Richardson back inside.

Really nice blimp on Crawford at the end. Dude put him in at slot and move D Hall to the outside forcing C Griff off the field.

Redskins should have gone for a first down after Josh Morganís blunder

I must be alone on this.
You are not alone. I would have preferred to go for it. Cundiff had no realistic chance.

Re: Redskins vs Rams Postgame Thread

Definitely should have gone for the first down instead. I read somewhere that there was about a 15% chance of making that FG, while it would have been about an 18% chance of picking up the first down. Slim chances either way.

Re: Redskins vs Rams Postgame Thread

I would have preferred to go for it with Griffin. I honestly don't understand why we didn't take a shot, we still had time so we could have gone deep, or try for the first, and a quick spike.

Time to move on...

Re: Redskins vs Rams Postgame Thread

I am with you guys. I don't understand why coach felt like we were in field goal range. I mean yes, its possible that he COULD make it but come on - stay in the moment and be realistic. It obviously was a bad decision partly because he missed it but mainly because it was out of his range. His longest fg made was 56 yards and that was a 62 yard attempt.

Re: Redskins vs Rams Postgame Thread

i could kickoff about 50-55 yards from a tee, but the longest fg i ever made (in practice) was 40 yards. cundiff booms it 75+ yards on kickoffs, but falls several yards short on a 62 yard fg attempt.

does anyone know his longest fg made in warm-ups this season?

Morgan made a boneheaded play at the worst possible time.

Today, RGIII said the Rams game was unprofessional. And calls the Rams out for doing a lot of dirty things and taking cheap shots.

Watching it now. One of the things that stands out to me is the poor play of Tyler Polumbus when the right side is the point of attack. He gets thrown out of the way too easily, does not sustain blocks, and is a liability on pass protection half the time.

Re: Redskins vs Rams Postgame Thread

Just watched the replay on NFLN, and thought about starting a new thread but I don't think any of us want to spend much more time dissecting this game. Gotta make a few observations.

Offense

Polumbus is garbage. I realize Chris Long is very good, but Polumbus' effort is questionable and he regularly gets lost on blocking assignments or is just too slow getting there. There were at least a few instances where Polumbus just quit mid-play. He's got no business being on the field and we should be looking for another RT.

Run blocking is pretty consistent (apart from Polumbus) and the Rams do have a solid d line and LB corp. Unfortunately, until we get a RT who can consistently block a defender the ground attack cannot dominate and RGIII won't be comfortable in the pocket. Fred Davis is a better blocker than Polumbus btw...no joke.

Niles Paul has no business being on the field at this point, and it's arguable whether he should be an active player. He cannot block...anyone. On RGIII's first running TD Paul wasn't even close to getting a block on Finnegan. He held him and we're lucky it wasn't called. Paul couldn't block anyone, though luckily we didn't ask him to much. He's also a lousy pass-catching TE at this point. On the (only) pass I saw him catch in the 1st half he was indecisive and slow to get off his heels. All two TE sets should be Davis and Paulsen, and honestly we'd be better off putting Paul on the practice squad and bringing Cooley back.
RGIII is the offense. His pick happened because Polumbus hardly slowed Long down and RGIII didn't have anywhere to run, so he should have taken the sack. RGIII did stare his target (Davis I think) down, which pulled Finnegan off Moss for the INT. Had Polumbus done anything on this play RGIII would probably have seen Moss and turned it into a nice downfield play.

Finally, Morgan was losing his cool by the start of the 4th quarter. He's got the physical ability, but his head isn't right to be a starter.

Defense

Lotus is correct, the d line didn't show up for this one. Bradford got the ball out quickly most of the time but there wasn't any pressure to begin with. Still...we could have one this game if Haslett knew what he was doing. We needed to be out of zone coverage half-way through the 1st quarter. Tight man with a safety hovering over the Welker clone. Is it possible for Haslett to get his act together?

Perry Riley isn't making an impact, and may be a liability. I'm not sure he would start anywhere else. Rob Jackson is good enough to start if he wouldn't take plays off. I think the way to go is constant rotation between Jackson and Wilson, and if Jackson still takes plays off I'd bench him for good (just a backup).

I liked how Mike took responsibility for the special teams fail, gotta respect that.
