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.

good point, Trent was pretty good last night but our Right side is bad.

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.
Biggers and Rambo are not ready and should not be out there right now. I think I was wrong about Jackson. We might want to give him a call.

So wish we had got Boldin probably impossible considering our cap number but he just been awesome for Bob.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

I am not willing to throw Shanahan under the bus completely. It's just one game. And MS certainly has turned our franchise around.

That said, all of the missed assignments, missed tackles, and lack-of-concentration plays indicate that the team was not mentally ready. That is a coaching failure. On this note, he was outcoached.

Given that the season is long, and it is better to look good in December than in September, perhaps Shanny was just going easy on folks week one, thus resulting in our embarrassing showing.

Yeah, I can't give any passes on missed tackles. That has nothing to do with scheme. That's just basic football.

If that's the case, then it is on Haslett to not have adjusted earlier.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

I'm a little pissed. I saw D. Hall, Garcon, Merriweather, and Fred Davis boozing it up around 11 pm Sunday night in Arlington. And it seems that 3 of those 4 didn't show up to the game on Monday. I thought players had curfews.

I'm sure people have mentioned it, but it's unfair to put that false start squarely on TW. The clock management wasn't the greatest on the drive. We burned a TO and the clock ran down to 01 a few times.

Is that because rg3 is "rusty" (btw getting to be the favorite term of the week, along with "fast paced") or the plays not getting in on time? Maybe a little bit of everything.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

My take on the game? The Eagles looked impressive early, but I'm not convinced they can maintain that level of tempo and run that many plays in each game throughout the season. Much longer season, much better athletes on defense. They didn't look too impressive in the second half, and I'm not convinced Kelly dialed back the offense.

Griffin is fine. I enjoyed watching him play in the second half. He was back to being RGIII. I think what helped the most? Having to be in a two minute offense and taking a few good hits. This game is going to be a positive for Griffin down the road. Guarantee he plays a much better, more complete game against Green Bay.

Alfred was a little slow to get going - seems like the right side was just not opening running lanes for Morris. He had his best success running behind Trent. Morris has got to hold onto the ball though.

I think our wide receivers will be OK. I think we have a solid group at Wide out. I think Hankerson played pretty well, and I think it's just a matter of time before Garcon has a monster game. I'm not worried about the receivers.

I am mostly worried about the secondary - but I was last year as well. Mostly, because we have some rookies who just have to go out and play. They have to develop, so we're going to be taking our lumps this season with them. But, they'll improve.

All in all, let's not get too upset over this game. Yes, nobody expected this to happen, but it did. I still think this team is solid and has the potential to not only get back into the playoffs, but to go deep in the playoffs this year. Much rather this happen in game one than game sixteen!

Haha...they should have gotten drunk after that performance. Where were they in Arlington?

Sorry Skip but that's BS.

That wouldn't have helped with the other miscues, like the fumbles, tackling, blocking, etc. It was team effort.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

Griffin's comments after the game were spot on: "On offense we had a case of the 'can't get rights'. I don't throw picks, Alf doesn't fumble and Kai doesn't miss kicks. All three of those things happened."

On a side not, I am sorry to announce that JoeReverend is no longer with us. He was unfortunately stoned to death as most false prophets are.
