Fair enough.

And I agree at this point you ride the RGIII bus but another major knee injury and the KC bus will start showing up in the rear view mirror.

The read option isn't off the table. Otherwise why did they practice it so much and ran it a bunch in preseason games with White?

It's definitely still in the game plan, but depending on game situations sometimes it will be called more often, sometimes less.

We fell behind early against Philly and couldn't get anything going. The RO isn't a threat when the other team knows you're in catchup mode and are going to pass every play.

Too many people are falling into the trap of looking at the results of one game and drawing hardline conclusions about how the other 15 games are going to go.

Completely right.

We'd be foolish to abandon the offense that had us ranked #1 in the league in rushing and 5th overall.


Did any of you ever think that perhaps we went with a simple game plan for RGIII's first game back not just to protect him, but to ease him back in? Even with a simple playbook, he still struggled. He just needed (needs) rep and once his rhythm and confidence back, we'll roll out everything we ran last season.

And as Matty said, we fell behind and had to abandon the run game to get back into the game, which we did.

The read option did not get him injured, trying to run through defenders on scrambles instead of getting down our to the sidelines did.

Griffin is one of the most competitive players in the league. Why wouldn't he want to run what works?

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

At his press conference followng the game, Griffin was asked if he had gotten more comfortable in the second half and if that was the reason for the improvement. In describing the offensive woes and the improvements in the second half, Griffin responded with his "can't-get-rights" comment and followed that by saying the team used the passing game to get a spark in the second half.

He then made the remark "but that's not who we are as a team" and talked about getting the run game fixed. Not sure how that fits into the RO debate but it struck me as a recognition that we are a run oriented team first and that he buys into that.

After leading the league in rushing last year it's quite obvious the type of team we are. The run sets up everything in this offense.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

yeah no joke, typically before last year I'd say we get smoked this week but for the reason of RG3 alone I'm really confident in this team now and I still believe we win the division.

I think from everything that's leaked out, there are hints that he doesn't want to run it. Would you agree with that? We had the ball a few times when the game was close and it was not run.

Maybe I overlooked it, but I haven't seen where we've stated that the read option was our base offense.

I think it's very much in the game plan. You'd be a idiot not to use something that was very effective during games.

No I don't agree. I think people are reading too far into things.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

Interesting observation on Hog Heaven -- comparing the Spurrier and Kelly debut games (apologies if this has been posted already):

Kelly's Eagles: 443 yards of offense on 74 plays and 33 points

Spurrier's Redskins: 442 yards of offense on 72 plays and 31 points

Let's hope that Kelly has the same trajectory as Spurrier (7-9 season 1; 5-11 season 2; no season 3)

Hail.
