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.

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.
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.

Thanks CRed. Interesting stuff. Spurrier and Kelly had similar offensive debuts while Spurrier did better on defense.

Not sure if this was mentioned either, but for all the talk of the eagles 53 in the first half, no one really mentions that the redskins had 58 plays in the second half.

I really see no way the eagles finish above .500. Their offense worked on us because we missed a lot of tackles, more so than the scheme, IMO. I don't think this offense will hold water when it's up against a stout d. It opens the QB and other position players up for abuse. It works in college cause there's the next man up and it's 11 games as opposed to 16+. Guess we'll see...

You sir are correct and thanks for pointing that out. Maybe I need to proof read before I hit submit. The point I was trying to infer is that he didn't want the RO on a regular basis or want it to become the base offense.

Yeah and Philly's offense was clearly gassed by halftime. I don't think it holds up either, it's only a matter of time before Vick gets hurt.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

After one game, the eagles are suddenly the next great NFL thing. The media seems to have selective memory because the eagles "high flying offense" has as much to do with the Redskins mistakes and specifically turnovers as it does anything else. After the turnovers, the eagles came back down to earth.

The reason why the eagles ran so many plays is because the redskins kept giving the ball back to them - with the 2 turnovers, safety, and even the defensive touchdown. I swear the national media are morons - not because they're stupid - but because they are lazy and repeat what they think everyone else is saying.

I know that RGIII,Morris, and the rest of the Redskins have not made being rusty as an excuse, which is the right thing to do so they hold themselves accountable. But that's what rusty is- making mistakes, not being sharp, and not playing to the level that you're used to because of inactivity.
