Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Panthers at Redskins)

I was at the game yesterday, and here are my observations:

- I dont break down film, and won't pretend I'm an expert, but the Panthers defense had multiple plays where they only have 1 deep safety, who would shade toward the side the Skins had more than 1 WR. Most times, Hankerson was left one and one with his corner. Why doesn't Kyle exploit this more? No trust in WRs to catch it? No trust in OL to block long enough?
- The refs were atrocious. Period. Replacement bad. Several bad calls. The hold on the 2nd non-TD late in the game probably took the cake.
- OLine down the stretch played very poorly.
- Front seven is getting very little push. Newton had all damn day to throw the ball.
- Brandon Banks is wasting a roster spot.
- The secondary has 2 weeks to get healthy and start playing a helluva lot better.
- The Skins continue to be outcoached (I'd say outclassed, but the Panthers showed no class yesterday) and if Shanny's thrown in the towel already, it's only going to get worse after the bye.

Shanny throwing in the white towel clearly shows that this team's depth is still a huge question mark. The injuries are mounting (Orakpo, Carriker, Merriweather, Davis, Garcon) and the guys replacing these folks (with the exception of Paulson, who has stepped up) just aren't good enough. And with the Skins facing another year of reduced salary cap, it's going to be another 2 seasons before they can built their depth back up.

The team will have all the leverage with Davis. I'd bring him back with a one year prove you're healthy type of deal.

Yeah there was just terrible calls on both sides. The personal foul against Morgan was just horrible. Not sure how some of these refs keep their jobs. One ref blew the whiste while the play was still going on. Just in excusable stuff.

Apart from the obvious, like Meriweather being activated probably too early to say for sure.

Doubt anything dramatic.

this is what i was thinking... we can't cover anyone anyway might as well try and blitz and hurry the qb and force a bad throw... seriously something has to change on D... personell we are stuck with... but the coach we dont have to be.... i just hope this bye week lets us as a team take a long hard look at ourselves and get the eff up to play philly in 2 weeks

I think, and it's just my thought, once he's officially declared healthy he'll be activated from the PUP list and then released.

Activated then release? WTF? Or is just "healthy" enough to be able to be released, but not healthy enough to actually play?


God damn. I'm not sure who got their money the easiest. Haynesworth or Jamaal Brown. Ughhhh....

:cheeky-sm

Have to agree -Im gonna go so far as to say that was one of thee worst performances at any position I have seen in a long time. Ugggh..

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Panthers at Redskins)

I'm furious at the way we have been using Alf. I understand that he was hurt late in the game, but why switch to Royster on 3rd and -5? He's getting good yardage everytime he touches the ball. I like(d) Royster, but I'm onboard the Alf train now.
I want to put every open catch on the DB's. They are horrible, but it looks more like a scheme problem than anything.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Panthers at Redskins)

Add WR drops, no pressure from front 7, & the inability to cover a slow fat guy like me let alone NFL caliber WR's to the list.

There are plenty more but we'll start with these
Those were really good, and I think the rest of us were just trying to add on to that the last few pages lol. What other "smack downs" do you have for people you haven't mentioned? Like say Josh Wilson, Perry Riley, Polumbus, etc?

But again, I haven't seen the play, so I'm not going to say "the call was awful."
Our fourth down conversions have been nothing short of amazing this year. I was in favor of it at the time so i wont lie now and say i wasnt.

He mentioned Josh Wilson in a not very subtle way actually - and very deserving too. Lol.
