Re: Skins/Vikings post game thread

I missed the entire first quarter, the local station showed the Eagles OT loss until it was over. I started watching at the beginning of the 2nd quarter with us down 9-0.

That was an amazing 3 quarters of football!

I'm feeling confident about the Giants game. Who cares that they just destroyed Alex Smith's team...we embarrassed them TWICE last year with Rex. We're infinitely better this season. We can do this.

I think he's just not a big rah-rah jump around type of guy. I wouldn't read into it. He's a quality guy.

Biggest difference was that we didn't leave Ponder in the game for four quarters like we did with Ryan last week. Both showed some late game ability to put it all together, but yesterday, it didn't matter.

The defense is playing adequately, given it's talent level. You can't start a bunch of guys like Rob Jackson, Madieu Williams, Reed Doughty, and Jarvis Jenkins and expect to have great results, but these results are more than acceptable as long as there are no stinker performances like the 2010 Eagles game. We can live with what the D is giving us right now. The special teams and the offense has to come to play like they did yesterday, but every week. They can't collapse and go back to how they were against TB and ATL.
A little disappointed in Jenkins. Perhaps he's still not 100% from his knee injury.

I saw that on the 76 yard run...he was like a statue on the sideline...I just laughed though.

He has a professional, Todd Collins-like demeanor. The thought ran through my mind "he knows he's never getting the job for sure now" but I have no doubts that he's a team player.

Re: Skins/Vikings post game thread

I didn't notice anything negative about Cousins' behavior during the game. He was talking to RG3 and Kyle throughout. Think he's just kind of even keeled. Only thing that caught my eye was that he was throwing on the sidelines early in the game. Not really sure why

I saw Jenkins make a couple plays specifically on run defense yesterday where he would come off a stunt or the line blocked down or inside and funnel Adrian Peterson to the outside for an easy tackle.

Oh by the way, did anyone here AP's name yesterday????? Dude had a quiet 70 yards rushing. Defense still playing good against the run...

Yes they have been more than solid in the run game. But it's painfully obvious that we're really missing Orakpo.

If you have three legs you will be able to outrun the whole defense every time.

He certainly made a strong case for that. At the least, he needs to be on the field a lot more going forward.

Robert Griffin III's 76-yard touchdown run, in his own words - Washington Times

"We kind of felt like they were going to pressure us in that situation. [Offensive coordinator] Kyle [Shanahan] called a good play.

"I saw the double A-gap blitz. I was thinking Iím either going to throw hot, or if they miss this blitz and donít hit it the right way, then Iím going to run for the first. I saw that they missed it, took off running and got to the sideline; thought about running out of bounds because everyone has been telling me that lately. You know in certain situations, and I felt like I had the guy outflanked. I just took off running. The rest is history.

I think Zoe definitely earned himself much more playing time. The dude was beasting yesterday.

Re: Skins/Vikings post game thread

Other observations: Kyle and Shanny have done a masterful job of tailoring the offensive to Robert's skill set.

Great to see Santana still doing his thing and contributing. Would love to see that guy get to a Super Bowl

Interior offensive line plays well as a unit. No one's dominant, but together they open up lanes and are fundamentally sound.

Re: Skins/Vikings post game thread

What a game. Those 3 stops in the 1st qtr were big and after we stopped them the 3rd time I told my wife that's going to be the difference in the game. RGIII had a great game and I loved Alexander getting more time with the D. T Williams played big and it was just a great team effort today.
