Balancing risk vs. reward with RG3 | Comcast SportsNet Washington

This article says what a lot of us have been saying for a while. The read option doesn't expose RG3 to injury; rather scrambling is the problem. This next season, I hope RG3 utilizes the sideline more instead of taking the hits.

Amerson, hall, Wilson, Biggers, Crawford, 6th?

Thomas, Merriweather

Rambo, Jackson, Pugh (PS)

Gomes gone who else or will we even keep 8 defensive backs? Any one have any idea how that plays out?

Re: Redskins News & Notes Chapter 6

Cult - I'm kinda surprised by the comments and predictions in the magazines. Based on the progress of healing, Griffin isn't going to miss that many games. Granted, we haven't seen enough of Cousins yet to determine that he actually is a starting QB material but the way we ended the season (not counting Seattle game), the team started to gel together. Enough to help Cousins to win games. If Cousins played bad at the Browns game then I would be worried but after that game and how he rallied at ending of the Baltimore game, I'm convinced he can win us some games.

Based on last season, our defense wasn't good so I guess it kind of make sense to at least assume that the defense won't improve much. It doesn't to me but I could see why some people would think that. I love the idea of flying under radar so if many people actually believe that then I'm happy.

I looked at two mags and both had us 4th in the division, I was shocked and honestly don't get it. I just hope the Skins put their stamp on the division this year and prove them all wrong.

pretty big news if this is the case.

"Both Mike Shanahan and Jim Haslett have indicated that the team will give Jackson a shot once he is eligible to return. During a media availability just before the draft Shanahan said, “At the safety position, we lost [Brandon] Meriweather and Tanard Jackson last year and you are hoping that both guys will be back, will be back healthy.”

Asked about Jackson last week, Haslett said, “Obviously if we got Tanard back, you know that’s another bonus because he’s a heck of a football player. I don’t know where that stands with the NFL, but we’d welcome back with open arms.” "

strong statement and will be something to watch
That is Awesome.
The addition of Amerson, Phillip Thomas, Bacarri Rambo, Tanard Jackson, E.J. Biggers and Brandon Merriweather to our secondary in one offseason is a HUGE upgrade from last years secondary.
Keep in mind that Josh Wilson played injured last season and is hopefully coming back healthy and add decent holdovers DeAngelo Hall, Reed Doughty, Richard Crawford and DeJon Gomes. In a short time we have cheaply added a ton more talent, athleticism and NFL caliber ability to what was a weak ass secondary.

Tanard will add much needed NFL experience/skill to a young safety position and will serve as an on field coach to Rambo/Thomas.
There is no risk in Tanard because if he gets caught blazing the cheeb again we do not have to pay him or have him count against the cap and we have the depth to deal with losing him.
IN the series or two I saw Tanard play in last preseason the guy is a player. Bring him back if he is in shape and ready to play.
Have I mentioned I love the job Allen/Shanahan/Haslett/Raheem Morris/Bobby Turner and FO have done? We finally have depth!
Not since 1992 can I finally finally say have the start of a formidable roster.
HTTR!

Re: Redskins News & Notes Chapter 6

We have so many quality DBs now, it's insane how much changed in one offseason WITHOUT cap money.

We're going to have to release some of them. There's not enough roster spots for this many defensive backs? Who? Gomes? Doughty? Pugh? Berstine?

Can Crawford any Minnifield even find a spot behind Wilson, Hall, Amerson, Biggers?

This season's defense is going to be like night and day compared to 2012. I'm willing to say we have a top-5 offense AND a top-5 defense.

That's a joke that is not even funny.

Philly and Dallas will continue to be chaotic messes. New York lost a LOT over the offseason. Ironic that they don't know how to handle a tight salary cap situation like us. They're on the down side of the mountain.

I don't see how we don't dominate this division.

Re: Redskins News & Notes Chapter 6

Can we even afford Hester?

He's not a very good WR. If we use Aldrick right, he's an adequate option with a longer shelf life and cheaper cost.

Hester's only use would be as a return man, and we already got some options there. I can't see him realistically competing for a spot as just as a WR with our current corps.

Its pretty nice that we can say no to some vets due to having young players that can develop into better options (or already are better options). Having depth and roster competition is making everyone on the team better.

Jordan Reed surprised by Redskins draft call

Check out the shoes that RG3 has half way down. Looks like Addidas wants him to walk on water.

He posted a pic of those shoes on FB/Twitter yesterday and everyone was freaking out saying he was going to hurt himself.

Re: Redskins News & Notes Chapter 6

Football Outsiders DVOA - Redskins the best!

According to FootballOutsiders.com, no NFL team in 2012 utilized play-action more — and better — than the Redskins. Washington, which used play-action on 42 percent of its plays, posted an NFL-best defense-adjusted value over average (DVOA) rating when faking the pass and throwing the ball. DVOA measures how a team fares relative to the league average in certain situations and considers numerous factors, including the quality of opposition.

The Redskins’ play-action offense was likely helped by numerous factors, with a mobile, accurate, strong-armed quarterback in Robert Griffin III one major reason Washington’s play-fakes vexed the opposition. Moreover, Washington has a robust running game that very much needed to be respected.


More of the same this season!
