Rookie d backs are gonna have there struggles. We are in a better position with Amerson and Rambo then we are without. Look at it this way, would you rather sit Rambo and resign Madieu Williams. Rambo will be an upgrade over our free safety play from last year. And Amerson has all the tools, he will put it together once he gets more comfortable.

Exactly. Great point.

Speaking of Rambo, he was |..................................| That close to either picking or knocking down that pass in the 3rd quarter.

I also noticed on one CJ Spiller run where CJ broke the run along the left side where the skins bench was, and he went past Amerson, breaking his tackle. Rambo took a good angle, forcing CJ to go out of bounds or else he'd take a big hit.

However later in the game CJ Spiller took a run to the right, stopped and reversed all the way to the left side of the field. Rambo came flying out of nowhere and missed, Spiller continued running towards the left side where Amerson came to knock him out of bounds. Rambo and Amerson both need to look at what they hit. They cant just put their heads down, not wrap up (Amerson) and go for the big hit. That doesn't work in this league. Rambo looks like he's slowly starting to learn, but still has a loonnngg way to go.


And I'm not at all surprised by Jordan Reed. When Robert gets back, this offense is going to be deadly. Our offense may even turn into our new form of defense (just keep scoring until the other team can't).

And Daryl Tapp, I thought he'd be a good camp body signing that could develop into a solid player, but wow, he looks like he can start right now for a lot of teams in the league. He reminds me of Justin Tuck in terms of how he plays, gets to the QB and bull rushes into blockers. Its funny that Philly cut him thinking he wouldn't fit in their new 3-4 defense. So we signed him for him to play a lot for our 3-4 defense and help beat them week 1.

Hall's stats last year were flat bad, but given how bad the free safety play was I wanna give him the benefit of the doubt and believe he'll have a great season. I've always believed he had the talent and skill to be a consistently solid corner, but lacked discipline and maybe heart.

Anyway, he's def a starting corner for us and hopefully Wilson rebounds from injury and Amerson gets up to speed. The secondary will probably be the difference between a good and great season IMO, either way.

I hate questioning someone's mom, but that's nowhere on their site, and I haven't heard it when I've watched. Maybe it was one analyst's opinion of what Shanahan should do, but all the Skins sources seem to be in agreement that Griffin is starting week 1, barring some unforeseen setback.

It was on Sports center I saw it. They basically said there was a chance he could be the Skins week one starter.

There is always a chance of a set back with III and Cousins. So they can speculate but I would be shocked if one or both are not ready to go.

Gotcha. Hopefully the Jets and Ryan have given them enough fodder, that they will let go of that storyline. Of course the show about Griffin's rehab airs this week so I imagine they will keep it alive for that.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread 3.0

If their defense really is as bad as it seems...90+%

That remains to be seen though.

I think our D is going to struggle with teams passing on us. However, as long as we can get some turnovers/sacks/forced fumbles ...and get the ball back to our offense then that's going to be enough. We might see a lot of 35-28 type games.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread 3.0

I think our D will be fine on obvious passing downs b/c of the plethora of pass rushers we can bring. I feel pretty confident that we can really get pressure with just the front four creatively used in those situations -> Rak, Kerrigan, Tapp, Jenkins, Jackson, Bowen and Cofield create a lot of options for rushing the QB while dropping into coverage.

Our base defense, however, may have problems stopping short and intermediate routes. Isolating Fletcher and the CB's in that short flats and middle would be my goal as an O-Coordinator - grab 4-5 yards there on first or second down to keep the 3rd Down package off the field.

For teams incapable of staying out of obvious passing downs, we could have a fearsome defense.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread 3.0

I've got high hopes for the pass rush this year. It could really help mask any secondary issues we may have.
