Tackling was terrible the entire game. Giving up 250+ yards is pathetic. Pass Rush looked good at times and than disappeared. I think the front 7 needs to improve a lot in order for the defense to improve. The secondary won't get better anytime soon.

Also Polumbus still does not know how to pick up blitzes.

Yeah, playing from behind typically means the pass rush is going to tee off on you.

Profound, I know, but Rodgers isn't quite the same player he was two years ago, and I think our defense can give them some problems. They're not going to hold GB under 20 points, but if we can get a quick 14 in the first half, I think they'll take them down to the wire.
Rodgers is still one of the best, if not the best QB in the NFL.
Packers will find ways to get Randall Cobb in isolated situations with Rambo, I am not liking Rambo's chances.

I just think they knew Griff wasn't a threat to run. They were not respecting any of our play action at all.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

proud of the team for not giving up and coming back in the second half. RG 3 looks like he shook the rust off the second half. Kai needs to get his mojo back also

I hope we can take advantage of a GB's weakness (no running game, suspect secondary, and mediocre offensive line). Biggest challenges will be to slow down Rodgers and contain Clay Matthews. Also, I'm a bit concerned about having to defend Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.

I'm definitely looking forward to round 2 with the Eagles. I'm not convinced that offense is sustainable over the long haul.

As Gruden pointed out, that stuff doesn't work so well when you're down 33-7.

Vick was limping at the end of the game and the Redskins aren't exactly the most physical defense.

Kelly's offense always struggle's against physical defenses, it did in Oregon and it will in the NFL.

Very few times I'll agree with a Dookie:

Respect the fact that @RGIII said "No excuses. I played poorly in the first half & I have to be better". #GrownManAnswer

The under center run game protects RG3, but it plays right into Philadelphia's hands, as it mitigates the talent discrepancy on the field.

Philadelphia is going to have a lot more room to overcome mistakes the whole season because they run so many damn plays. As long as Shanny is our coach and Kelly is theirs, we're going to be at a schematic disadvantage. So we needed to take advantage of having a lot more talent than them and try to get Bradley Fletcher and Patrick Chung covering Hankerson & Robinson down the field, we simply didn't do that.

Helu is a really good player in the Redskins spread offense concepts. Really strong picking up the blitz. Can win one on ones on the outside as a receiver. If Morris starts like he did tonight, we can roll with Helu and the passing game in the future. Changing the RB was the single best offensive adjustment we made in the game, and allowed us to take advantage of the mismatches we had all over the field. Only problem was, we were too slow with the adjustment.
Yeah I don't know who it was on the last TD but they got totally exposed, why did we wait so long to get the downfield game going? I guess they were hoping if they stuck with the run things would open up downfield, and would slow down the tempo of the game, unfortunately between penalties, short gains, sacks and turnovers, we weren't getting the first downs. Those early fumbles really hurt us, RG3's rustiness would not have been such a problem I it weren't for those two plays.

They came off the bus blitzing, not just when we were down.

I don't think that was the running game so much as we just weren't picking up the LBs for the first three quarters.

Our protection schemes were the problem. The Eagles DC clearly put in a ton of hours over the offseason into understanding how we liked to block our passes and that preparation resulted in a lot of clean runs on RG3.

Only wish our defense would have found some sort of advantage given 8 months to find one.

The Redskins were down basically the entire game. Plus the offensive line didn't preform well. Even Trent Williams struggled at times today. I thought it was just a poor performance by the offense the entire first half.
