Skins v Eagles post game thread

Fresh thread time.

A tale of two halves. Seems like we got ambushed early on by their high tempo offense and our slow start on offense only compounded the problem.

Griffin looked a lot better in the second half. Something to build on going forward.

Glad to see a comeback. I think we beat GB next week and start a streak. Just wait

Sucked that it took the offense so long to finally get going, but at least they got back on track and made a game of it. Very positive going forward. Still need to address the dumbass penalties.

I will say our D couldn't tackle at all tonight, I was pretty confident we would win tonight but that's what the NFL is about. Ask Tampa yesterday.

Too many penalties as usual. Even if they recovered the inside Morgan was off sides. That stuff needs to ne addressed.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

Someone mentioned this in the game thread. RG3 got hit a couple of times, but I'm glad he did and shook it off.

My big concerns going forward are:

- Alf's running game
- Lack of pass rush
- And our perennial issue with the Safety position


Things to look forward to:

- A midseason form RG3
- Hank developing his WR play
- Helu pass blocking as the 3rd down back

How dare you be positive about the team. The prophets are going to come to get you!

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

Best thing that could of happen to us, was to lose like this tonight. We have a lot of desire and fire on this team. This will awaken that.

I feel bad for the Packers next week.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

Bad...first half, run defense(but damn Mccoy is a beast), Rambo looked not just like a rookie but a liability, penalties, missed fg, Kerrigan concussion, the safety.

Good...Second half, Griff looked sharp and the shot of him on the bench in the midst of the comeback shaking his head just screamed "ok im ready now", Hank, Kai's kickoffs. edit..HELU

Bottom line is that when your star player isnt playing like one it is going to infect the entire team - the D gets tired and frustrated, the run game doesnt work rite, the wr's get dejected, but as soon as Griff found his rythym mid way through the third quarter it energized the entire team. I am still just as confident that this team is going places this year as I was at 7:14 pm tonite. I am completely chalking that up to a warm up game for Griff - I wanted them to put in KC and give us a chance to win, but in retrospect now, I am happy they let RG-3 work out the kinks because the next 15 games greatly outweigh week one.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

We were soundly beat by a better team. Let's give credit here to the Eagles. I think this entire town overlooked Philly and forgot how good McCoy is. How good Michael Vick can still be. He's really in the perfect offense and really made some nice passes. But what surprised me most was their total disrespect for our offense. They blitzed us constantly.

Why are you worried about Morris? He had one bad fumble but that pitch was on RG3. Not worried about Morris. I'm more worried about the shitty blocking I saw.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

I had a feeling that they would have RG3 play conservatively within the pocket to start, but I didn't anticipate him struggling like he did. It wasn't until he started playing loose and moving around that he started playing like himself. I don't mean to suggest that he can't play from the pocket, but perhaps it s just too new to him, and he is too much in his head trying to find the balance between running wild and being immobile. He'll find it, and I really hope he does soon.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

0-1 isn't anything to get worked up about, as the first week tends to be the least predictive. Anyone remember how good the 2011 Redskins played in the opener?

0-2 is a different story. If this is a playoff team, we'll take a lot of frustration from this first half out on Green Bay. Problem is, they're looking to do the same thing to us. There's no such thing as a must win in the first two weeks, but even good teams that begin 0-2 usually don't recover to make the playoffs.
