Specific to Kyle the play-calling has improved over the last three games. Before that play-calling was bad to avg. I realize you'll never agree with this, but I think the results spoke for themselves.

Along those lines, among all the guys I watch/talk football with the most memorable Redskins play this season is sending RG3 out to catch a pass against Ryan Clark. That play was a microcosm of the season up to three weeks ago. The play-calling/coaching has improved. It seems pretty simple to me.

I'll say this.... in the first 3 games or I should say wins I felt the play calling was right on. The players had little to no penalties and the play calling was spot on. Then some where after those games the play calling changed, we saw more pitches by RG3 and less roll outs and less option plays. Designed probably to keep RG3 from getting hit like he did in the first few games.

Then even I said they need to get back to doing what they were doing at the beginning of the year. More roll outs, more play action to freeze the defenses, more option plays with RG3 holding his hands up right before he gets hit if he doesn't have the ball. The last 3 games we have seen just that.

I'll agree the screens were baffling and I was pissed but no OC will call the perfect game. There will always be some plays even he wishes he could take back.

Now last night I was more pissed in the first half cause it seemed like the passes were going to everyone but the guys who helped the team win the last 3 games. Where was Hankerson? where was Robinson? where was Garcon? where was Morgan? It seemed like the passes went to Niles Paul (who can't catch a cold)- even though he got lucky with the catch in the Dallas game (which he bobbled). Passes went to Paulson (whom I love by the way but.....) who dropped on and was over thrown the second time.

Yes Morgan caught the fumble for the TD. But it seemed like Garcon was not majorly used until the second half and where was Robinson? hankerson I think had one catch for decent yards and maybe Morgan had another catch.

Re: Giants at Redskins Post Game Thread

Does anyone think its possible Shanahan's comments about using the rest of the season to "evaluate" players was a calculated move to light a fire under players whom he felt werent giving their all? I think he just spoke without really thinking it through and the media ran wild with it. either way, I cant really think of another reason to explain why the defense has played so much better the past 3 weeks, other than defensive players simply executing better.

Personally I felt him sitting in the pocket getting hit was more dangerous because he's a statue back there looking down field. If he runs I feel he has the opportunity to lesson the hit by only allowing the defender to get part of him or because he gets hit the same direction as he's running which although looks bad prbably is not as bad as it looks cause it's either not a clean solid hit or there is less impact.

ie; a car colliding with another car head on is extremely bad. A car getting T-boned is bad. A car sitting not moving getting hit by another car/truck is bad. But a car already moving forward getting hit from behind causes less damage because the energy is transfered to the car struck.

bad example I guess. but I worry about RG3's head bouncing off the turf more so then him getting hit. Standing in the pocket looking down field worries me just as much because of the force of the impact. I think if RG3 is moving the energy of the impact from player to player is less, unless he runs head on into a defender.

Can't believe I forgot about the OTL special on RG3 today. Will have to catch the podcast later. Curious what was said

I think in that moment he was just really deflated and felt like the season was slipping away. Maybe his comments ruffled some feathers but more than anything I think what really helped was having the bye week.

After the first Giants game I think that loss took the wind out of our sails for a few games there and you could tell with the way we played against Pitt and Carolina. We got our mojo back after the bye.

On a side note I love how RGIII does his post game interview in Pads. Doing this just screams that he doesn't follow the Norm.

I think thats what you get when your expected to win and you lose. I can tell you I expected the team to win that game. In any event after a loss if he was as mad as I was and had to do interviews I can understand why he said what he said. He was pissed, let down, and prbably was not up for an interview. Emotions went crazy and he spoke out loud.

for what? I'd have expected the Giants player who stomped on the Redskins player to have been suspended 4 games. He should have been ejected during the game. I know he did it cause our player kicked out at him for pulling him and it was around groin level but the Giant player had no right to pull our player like he was.
