Re: Skins vs Packers post game thread

Why not give Kerry Rhodes a look? Could he be worse than Brandon "1 Series a Year" Merriweather? The G-men are about to pounce on this guy.

I will say, however, all this aside, the shooting in DC today does put things in perspective. I am out in CA, but have been watching the awful events unfold from here. Makes this seem relatively unimportant, as much as I love the team.

Don't get me wrong, I realize that a lot of that is in garbage time, but at least the offense has generated something. Our D has been putrid.
The def isnt going to be good if we keep having so little time of possession in the first half. Against the Eagles, after the first drive or two, we actually held Philly for a few drives, until the def got wore out. Against the Packers, same thing. Playing the def line is much more tiring than playing on the off line. You can wear them down if you have the ball the whole time. If the off moves the ball and doesnt keep running 3 or 4 plays per drive, the def will improve. Not that its a great def, its not, but its not as bad as they have shown so far.

Shanahan says he won’t consider a quarterback change

Not quite that simplified but in a way, yes. There's no need to start scrambling to fire coaches, bench Griffin, blah blah blah that sports talk minded people espouse. Do some of you doubt your (any pretty much most analysts) ability to understand football and think that two weeks ago we were a playoff caliber team and now we're not? We played pretty much as bad as a team could play in back to back weeks, but it's still week 2. Come find me in Week 6 if we're still giving up 350 yds and being outscored 24-0 each first half.

I don't give garbage time stats any credence. They look good in the box score, but a more accurate measure of how the offense has played is looking at the first half statistics for these first two games.

Bottom line - until Robert is willing to extend plays with his legs, the offense will continue to struggle. I miss the RG3 from the Giants game last year who extended a play on 4th and 10 by scrambling outside the pocket before finding Paulsen for a huge 1st down. The guy we've seen so far this year is unwilling (or unable) to extend and make plays with his legs.

sad really.
Well, I always look on the bright side, and honestly think there's a lot to be excited about. This team has some really talented players on both sides of the ball.

Offensively we have our QB(s), RB(s), TE(s) and a couple WRs in place and an awesome left tackle. Fill in the rest of the line with guys who can actually block and it's ready for a HC/OC who can maximize the talent.

Defensively, I honestly believe the front 7 is solid. Totally solid with better coaching and adjustments. And we probably have 1 or 2 DBs who can be coached into solid players.

I think we could be a San Fran, Seattle or KC (if Reid does his thing) situation where the right coach/leadership steps in and BOOM, we're a contender.

I don't want to see a quarterback change but i think if we come out of the bye at 0-4, it has to be going through his mind....

Well if he does change the QB he better hope the OLine learns how to block, receivers learn how to get open and to make catches, and the defense learns how to tackle, cover, and get consistent pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Hopefully if cousins becomes the starter all those aspects of football magically become fixed.

Re: Skins vs Packers post game thread

KC isn't playing and it shouldn't even be a thought in anyone's mind right now.

KC missed a good chunk of practice time with his injury. Substitute one rusty QB for another? Not smart.

Griffin is the franchise, you don't bench him. It will only create a giant shit storm of controversy.

Re: Skins vs Packers post game thread

Does anyone just think that we the fans/ media over estimated the talent on this team? All day long everyone is making excuses and what not...I know we can play better than this, but perhaps we just aren't a good team.

No I see our holes, WR , RT , and CB'S and Safeties.

But I also see a Big time LT and a legit star QB so maybe I'm just a little greedy from last yr.

I think we are on the way to being a good team. I can't stress enough how many bums were here when Shanahan came in as coach. I remember that many of the players they released never played in the NFL ever again.

I have mentioned this before, but a few years ago, during the terrible Jim Zorn years, I caught this show on NFL network about the NFL's greatest dynasties, winningest teams, etc.. They said on there that the average time it took to turn a team into a dynasty, meaning consistently winning, superbowls, etc... was like 6 or 7 years on the average. So assuming 6 years is the average, what has MS been here for, like 4 years already? So i would say there are still like 2 more years to go. If MS is here that long.

I think it could just be that we got hot at the right time last year, luck usually has a lot to do with playoffs, etc, getting good at the right time. And perhaps we have some good luck this year....
