Only wish our defense would have found some sort of advantage given 8 months to find one.
Kind of hard when their is no tape on how the opponent's offense will look in the Pros.

He's still the best, but he's no longer so good that you pencil in 24 points against simply because you have Green Bay on the schedule. Defenses have a chance now.

We're 0-1, but after our patented 7 game winning streak, we'll be 7-1 and in 1st place.

Well maybe but his rusty ass would have won that game if there was a fifth quarter. Lol

And that's about it for recent examples. Unless you start counting 8-8 teams that made the postseason. It's not uncommon for good teams to start 0-2 and then play 8-6 the rest of the way, that happens all the time. But its a pretty bad plan for making the playoffs.

At least he didn't get slammed in the knee or head. He'll be sore as h*ll but ready to rock on Sunday.

Yea, except I don't trust the Redskins defense to perform well enough to slow down the Packers. They did score 28 points against the 49ers, and obviously the 49ers have a defense that is on another level when compared to the Skins. But you never know. I just do not trust the safeties enough to think Rodgers won't expose them.

Things to look forward to:

- A midseason form RG3
- Hank developing his WR play
- Helu pass blocking as the 3rd down back
AlfMo will get it rolling, if he doesn't we will see Helu get it going.

I thought we did generate some rush but had problems because of the lack of knowledge of the offense. Next week I think we will see some of the different packages we saw in the preseason that helped generate a pass rush. GB does have a suspect t problem. Rak and Kerrigan should create pressure.

The safety problem is going to have to really work itself out. Rambo made some
plays and made some rookie mistakes. Though he played much better as the game went on.

My issues are with the Oline. They didnt dominate up front at all. Last year the run game worked because of their play and Morris's ability to make plays after contact.

I honestly thought Rambo started pretty good and I was impressed by his play but as the game went on he started missing tackles and taking poor angles.
He is a rookie safety so it might be like this the entire year. DB's take a long time to adjust.

Our defense didnt have anything to look at regarding the Eagles team. Once they did in the second half we allowed 5 first downs. The Eagles won't be a surprise much the second half:

The Eagles have had four years to watch our team's offense.

I saw that we had a problem not calling the proper protections in the second half. Using Griff as just a pocket passer is a waste of his talents. He started to be able to feel the rush in the second half and use his game to make off scheduled plays. This team doesn't scare me.

We still have the opportunity to be very good.

GB is good, but if the Redskins are really out to prove that tonight was an aberration, that shouldn't matter.

I'm not going to panic at 0-1, but poor coaching, spotty quarterback play, poor tackling, and miscues from young players who we've leaned on before like Forbath and Morris are the kind of things that would suggest this isn't an aberration.

If those things are solved, this game should be a non-issue in six days when we're 1-1 and beat one of the top teams on the schedule. If they aren't, we're going to be 0-2 and frankly, not a good team. A lot on the line next week.

They don't have Oregon tape at Redskins park? Funny, because I have Oregon tape and all I have is the internet.

Fix the problems from this game by Week 2, and no one remembers this game. But you have to make those adjustments, quickly. Trailing by 18 at half to a bad football team at home is not typical of a good football team.

I would agree, but I think McCoy is the PERFECT back for that offense, so much open field and space, and he is dang near impossible to get down 1 on 1.

It will slow down though if Vick gets hit, which he will.

Wish McCoy was in a different division.

Well, if you get torched by a talent lacking, run heavy Eagles team and then a talent loaded, pass heavy Packers team in back to back weeks, you don't have a good defense. Or even an average one.
