Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

I feel like GB owes us. We have nearly beat them the last two times 07 and 10. Plus we have not beat them since 1988.

I think we put it together and beat the Pack. In true Redskin's fashion we lose the easy ones and win the tough ones.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

I didn't read a whole lot between page 1 and page 8, so maybe this is restating the positives but, I hear a whole lot of bashing of the defense and praise of the eagles offense on the radio, and I just can't help but think that appearance wasn't reality last night:

The eagles 1st drive looked good, but ended with a turnover, something Vick is known for.
The 2nd drive stalled before they got in the redzone.
3rd drive started inside our 30
4th drive was a 3 and out
5th drive was a 7 and out
6th drive was a 9 and out
forgive me, but that's what we wanted from our defense. Our offense had 4 possesions at that point consuming 5 minutes total game clock. If even one of those had been a sustained drive, I doubt the Eagles offense would have put their last two sustained drives together.
Then, the Eagles had 5 first downs in the whole 2nd half.

This game turned on a sloppy offensive 1st quarter. Lots of ways to look at that, but ultimately Griffin summed it up best by saying that the offense had a case of the CantGetRights.

Next Sunday I hope we pass that disease to the Packers.

No loss is good. Not in the NFL at least.

I personally believe if the skins don't make the playoffs this year or at least do not contend for one until the very end the organization should assess the coaching staff and consider firing some folks. Just my opinion though.

Gotta call it like I see it. Giving away field position and giving up the ball and points- there's no comparison.

Totally agree! Our offense (lack of) enabled Philly's offense to score not our defense.

It is like hockey if you allow the opposing team to have 1000 shots on goal in a period eventually even a brick wall well let a few in. Kind of hard to blame the goalie at that point.

They did run for 250+ yards, have almost 450 yards of total offense and score 33 points. Offense obviously played poorly but that doesn't excuse the defense looking bad, especially with tackling and gap discipline. Honestly, the entire teamplayed poorly the first half.

We beat GB at home a few years back when LL Picked off AR late

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

On the one hand, D Hall's TD was great. On the other it gave the defense no time to rest. That being said, I was disappointed to see how tired the defense looked to start the game. Tired and sloppy. First game of the season, first quarter even, and you look like you're playing in OT of week 16.

He was unusually sloppy last night. Lack of a running game early on really hurt. No way RG3 should need to throw the ball 49 times

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

I was a little surprised they did not roll Robert out more in some play action looks rather than just a drop back style. We are not really set up for that and it showed......

Plenty of scapegoats....the fumble on Morris was bad, the pitch was on RG3, the oline got abused, the safeties were pathetic, RG3 played poorly, D-line and LB's were out of position and Forbath missed a kick....

It's one game but next week sure looks like a must win and Green Bay is thinking the same thing.

I know everyone is wondering why Morris wasn't himself. All you have to ask is- what was different at this time last year? When the New Orleans game came around, Griffin and Morris were sharp and ready to go. Maybe the lack of preseason snaps, maybe distractions and attention to media? Maybe not THE reason, but it all had to play a part. They have to get focused again and remember what got them to the NFC East division champion last season.

I think it is hard to do roll outs when you have no threat of a running game. DEs will go upfield and blow up the play every time.

That was RG3s "worst game" as a starter people r saying but he ended up with a top 10 QB performance this week. (based on numbers) I think they'll be ok, give it a couple weeks
