I think what's frustrating a lot of people is we haven't put together a complete game yet. If offense and defense do their jobs, special teams doesn't. Just stuff like that. If RG3 comes back, we'll have another tough test on our hands, but we match up pretty well with the Vikings.
Even sf lost to Minnesota. Any team is beatable.

Re: Falcons at Redskins Post Game Thoughts

Exactly, I just think SF, Chicago and even Seattle are about the toughest teams right now.

Re: Falcons at Redskins Post Game Thoughts

One big thing I'm noticing is becoming a pattern (I'm sure the weather didn't help) is we are not a very good tackling team. WAAAAY too many yards after contact. Saw a few nice tackles yesterday, but way too many arm tackles.

Dislikes:

- Getting to see Kirk Cousins
- Not getting to Matt Ryan/Giving him lots of time to pass/allowing him to step up
- Our pass defense in the second half (particularly the 4th quarter)
- Josh Wilson; Before the game John Lynch interviewed Matt Ryan and the WRs and said do you all know where you want to attack the Skins today? They all replied 'Wherever Josh Wilson is, where going to that guy whose on him'. Translation= He sucks. Then I went back and remembered reading on this board that Josh Wilson was playing at one of the highest levels in the league according to ProFootballFocus.com. If teams are specifically going after a guy, that means he isn't good. And if that player who isn't good is considered the best player in our secondary and has a reliable stat sight saying that he's good, then that right there really shows that our secondary is awful. At least thats how I see it (and Josh was tested the whole game and ultimately did poorly, allowing guys to get first downs on him and stiff arm him constantly)
- Billy Cundiff; like I said earlier today, when a kicker has no confidence, he's got to go. His body language said it all to me today. He had to make both kicks today; he missed the easy one, 31 yards, so he's got to go. Josh Brown, Neil Rackers, Kris Brown, Gano come and try out.
- The DL got zero push or pressure today. 1 sack the whole game. All we did was edge rush and when you edge rush and get 0 pressure up the middle, all the QB has to do is step up in the pocket, like I mentioned above.
- Pierre Garcon. We are undefeated in games which he scores a TD. I think he's a great player. I Want to think he's going to be a great signing and worth the money. But today's performance of dropping passes was head pounding.
- RG3 getting hurt.
- The tackling on the defense
- The fact that Orakpo may not be on this team next year, according to SS. I think its a dumb move if we really do trade him; especially if it isn't a first.
I found that interesting that they'd go after Wilson before Hall. But letting Ryan sit back there with no pressure didn't help the situation. And it's not like Atlanta has the 1991 Redskin o-line either.

Re: Falcons at Redskins Post Game Thoughts

I think they went after Wilson mainly for the height advantage.

Not because he "sucks".

I think he is. Let the kid throw it down field a little more. Why did we bring in Garcon and Morgan? To let them catch slants and wr screens? Too much of the offense is 10 yards and in and it's not going to work against the better teams. Cousins comes in and he hits Moss over the top of the defense and he's wide open.

Also why don't they run the hurry up offense? This is what RG3 did in college. He's comfortable with it as he marched the team down the field against Tampa.

I don't think he is handcuffed because of his inexperience, He is handcuffed because the line sucks and they need to get rid of the ball in 3 seconds or less.
They don't want RG3 to sit back in the pocket and get destroyed. All plays are quick plays.

I think your right about Santana.

I dont think our WRs are 'winning' there matchups. Im specifically talking about Robinson and Hankerson...and Morgan to an extent. They need to beat their guy coming off the line and run a good route. If its zone, then they need to find the soft spot. I think it comes with time, but these guys are getting alot of playing time and its a passing league...I think Hank and Robinson have improved, but all about production vs playing time.

Re: Falcons at Redskins Post Game Thoughts

I don't think RGIII is being handcuffed in terms of passing. He's thrown the deep ball quite a bit, but he also looks to complete the higher percentage pass more often than not. If RGIII is handcuffed at all, it's just to protect him; aka calling less option sprints or QB keepers. As I pointed out in my first post, I DO think game planning running plays with RGIII opens the offense up to its fullest potential, but right now, it's probably best to limit that since he's gotten a concussion. In the long run, to have RGIII further develop his pocket passing. Once he starts to become feared as a pocket passer, it's going to make his scrambling deadlier to opposing defenses.

Re: Falcons at Redskins Post Game Thoughts

Hank really hasn't impressed at all since drafting him, Morgan is solid and PG just isn't 100%. Moss is old but he still could give us some good play as he did yesterday. My favorite out of the bunch is Robinson personally, I feel he's going to be a very good slot WR

I didn't see the the Falcons board screaming to fire their offensive cordinator because they had two plays that threw passes to a backup center.

Shanahan came in and said it would take 5 years. I'm willing to give him that. He's done a lot of good for this franchise and we are currently 1 game out of the division lead.

I have a strong feeling if we win next week, and go in to NY the following with the division lead at stake. The vibrations of failure could change around here.

Everyone is so easy to scream failure. I understand everyone has different opinions, but this day and age NFL isn't perfect.. People and teams will get better or worse. I believe we are getting better.

Packers got beat by the Colts yesterday, and they are now 2-3.. The worse team in the NFL last year just beat the team that was in the Superbowl. I believe we were an injury away from perhaps winning against a team that is now 5-0 this year.

We are not as far off as people think in my opinion.
Fair enough except the comment about not one team that is perfect. Actually 5-0 is perfect and of course the falcons board isnt screaming- they won? There is a big difference between the skins being in the beginning of their third losing season in a row and last place in the division again and the falcons throwing two passes to their back up center. There is nit-picking and there is being sick of losing. I think anybody that follows the nfl would agree that redskins fans should be a tad bit more upset with the current situation in washington than the falcons fans in atlanta. We are still a team with a lot of question marks and the falcons are a team that is considered a super bowl contender.
That being said - i will leave shanny out of this because like it or not he is here. My positive thought is there is a ton of parody in the nfl and we are not buried in the nfc east by any means. I hope rg3 is back sunday and we win against minn. we have all of our nfc east games in hand and maybe just maybe we turn this around.

I presume your talking about Cousins and am wondering what Redskin official and when did they say our plan was to pick him and trade him 2-3 yrs later? I've never heard that. Does it make sense? yeah but that doesn't mean thats the plan. The other idea is that Grossman sucks so bad they wanted a viable back up and the coaching staff liked what they saw in Cousins during the senior bowl.

I really wonder if the thought process wasn't more the fact Cousins came from a pro style college offense and RG3 didn't. In case RG3 struggled they could hopefully insert Cousins and get production until RG3 was up to speed. As it turned out RG3 was better then advertised.
