I think the whole illegal hits issue would diminish if teams would teach players to wrap up and take down when making tackles. I saw our young DBs way too many times yesterday throwing themselves without any attempt at wrapping up the player that they were tackling.

If not, what is different that might have caused this issue? And those things are what I came up with. I know it's important to rest the starting running back during preseason, but it shouldn't be at the expense of being off in the first game of the regular season. There must be a number of preseason snaps that's balanced enough to be sharp enough and to also allow for fresh legs and season/career longevity.

I also believe that this team needs to be taken back from the media. The team can't always be held accountable to the media. Do what's best for the team (and fans) and start ignoring the criticism from outsiders, especially the media.
Not this

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

I will say, some of our fans had no rust whatsoever in the first game. They were in true form the first half of our season opener. Bailing ship and doing their best Bill "game over man" Paxton impersonation.

So you are telling me that was the exact same plays and offense he had at Oregon? No variation whatsoever? If so, it nullifies your statement.

Yea I think we might have one of the worst home field advantages in the NFL.

The concepts were there, Fletcher said it wasn't anything they haven't seen before. I'm not buying that as an excuse. We simply didn't tackle well and blew too many assignments.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

Yup. My seats are right next to the visitors tunnel in the corner of the endzone. Skins fans started leaving at halftime!! Eagles fans started to pour down to get closer to the action and see the Eagles at the end. Even Marcus Vick was there, it made me sick!

Three turnovers, a safety, a QB with a 22.1 rating at the half.......and somehow it's Shanahan who's being out-coached.

Not pointing any fingers won't do it. It was a team effort just won't point a finger at any individual. We win and lose as a team.

If you mean improvement by Biggers and Rambo, I'm not sold. I just think they're both poor open field tacklers. I doubt that we'll see much better tackling at the safety positions until we have Brandon Meriweather and Tanard Jackson back. That is if we get one or both of them back. The earliest I'm expecting to see much improved safety play is after the Redskins' bye week. I'd like to be wrong about that.

Pretty much...what they ran looked like Oregon and the tempo did too....even one of the players said they didn't run anything they didn't see on film. Haslett waited too long to start coming after Vick. And their D coordinator pretty much had no respect for our offense or our passing game. Last night, they were the better team, no excuses.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

Just wanted too add my post game thoughts, still trying to read through the whole thread. So I'm probably repeating what others have said.

1. Alot of missed tackles, reminded me of watching the Giants Sunday night.

2. RG3 gonna be fine, but hopefully a little bit humbled from last night.

3. Pass protection still is an issue, we struggled last year at times, we are only middle of the pack in this area.

4. Still need a receiver with great hands, when the QB isn't super sharp. I don't feel like we have this guy on the roster yet.

5. Can Vick really take that many hits? Seems like minimum pass protection most of those plays.

we hit vick a bunch and how many sacks did we have? 4? and thats with RAK getting 0
