I want to agree with you, but our first two stalled drives are directly tied to Morris, and his lack of consistent push these first two games early on, when I think that the Skins wanted him to shoulder the load, he couldn't. Yes the defenses accounted for him, but the Skins needed him to keep the downs and distances manageable, and so far I don't think he accomplished that.

Still, I think the offense will click, and when it does the defense will get better for several reasons, which I think you have already outlined.

I think that was part of the "bye week controversy" last year, but can you blame him, look at how hammered he and Shanahan get when something bad happens. He has the talent to be a pocket passer, we just don't have a line designed for it.

I do think it's been a progression though and he moved a little more last week than the first, and I hope this week we see full speed rollouts, especially fakes off the pitches to Morris. I HATE the pitches to Morris but I could see Griffin rolling out and finding wide open receivers off of it too.

Me personally, that wasn't what I was dismissing. That said, I don't know that more reps would have made that much a difference. I think a bigger issue is he's kind of facing adversity for the first time in the NFL and has to learn how to overcome it

Re: Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions Pregame Thread

I dont know if I've ever seen as many people pick the skins to lose,especially the thread starter,and Mattyk too!
As I stated on another thread{that nobody responded to}I watched the 30 minute rewind of Dallas Kc and looking at their defense{both teams}and ours its like night and day.Dallas pass rush looked ferocious and they were so close to sacking the qb numerous times but didnt because Smith was mostly using 3 step drops.
My point on bringing up the Dallas game is kc was beating the pass rush by using the 3 step drop,we need to do the same thing since teams are blitzing us so much.If not that,some designed rollouts to buy some time{remember how Gibbs used to have Joey T do those big designed rollouts?}
The defense is not going to improve that much in one game,but if the offense can get us some damn points in the first half then hopefully the defense can at least keep the yards gained against below an historical level that were on pace for
I dont know how to pick this game,my eyes tell me were so bad that this is gonna be another long afternoon.If we need fg's whos kicking in this game? Is Kai back?And why the hell did we sign a kicker thats never kicked a frickin fg anyway? I cant believe he was the best option out there
Guess I've talked myself into picking Detroit

Sorry, but you have to worry about Fairley and Ziggy as well. Yeah, Suh is evil, but Fairley and Ziggy can just be as aggressive as Suh. That being said Mr. Griffin better get mobile as much as possible, being a pocket passer against the Detroit D line is dangerous for one's long term health.

Sorry for the double post on the link but Morris says himself that he isn't in rhythm yet and needs more work. If you look at last year he took time to really roll. The defense and the turnovers have killed us in the first halves. Sunday is a new day and I hope we start putting it together. If the offense can get rolling aL la last year we can still win some games.

Funny thing is all we heard in camp was how great he looked.
These guys need the hits and live action to really be accurately judged not only by the coaches but also themselves.

You must be relying on the one play in the 2nd qtr that Aikman praised TW for "that play".

If you watched the game on DVR and see TW driven back into RG3s face on consecutive plays late in the first quarter, or watched him not recognize CM coming off the edge on the WR screen and attempt to cut him rather than ignore him, or the multiple plays where he's driven backwards on runs or barely gets a stalemate with no drive.....despite outweighing OLBs by 40 lbs. and you want to call those "bright spots" then OK.

But I've never analyzed any football and am certainly clueless and you know much better.
