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

On a lot of screens, wide receiver screens included, O-line will not pick them up because they are coached to not pick them up. Clay lined up wide and went straight up field. TW wouldnt have gotten him cut in time anyways based on the angle that CM took. Its a WR screen, they are coached to hit the second level as quick as possible. You are also talking about Clay Mathews. A guy that goes around a lot of LT's anyways, run or pass. Its not as easy as you make it out to be. You have to catch him before you can block him. But according to you, the average person sitting at home watching on Sunday can do that.

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
I didn't pick the Skins to lose, I didn't even make a prediction.

Cheeky.

I did and Shanahan also denies that's the problem.

I don't think it's the problem either. The whole offense if out-of-synch because of playing from behind (thanks defense) and trying to get timing down with Robert. Morris isn't going to be able to run effectively when we aren't able to call running plays. The pistol and read option have been non-existent because of the early point deficits we're facing and also getting our QB back into regular-season shape. Robert is the rusty one. Morris' game is more about running over tacklers, rust won't effect that as much. The first fumble was inexcusable and the second, well, that WAS a bad pitch but he still should have caught it.

I expect a lot of improvement by Griffin and Morris this week.

Re: Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions Pregame Thread

I've seen zero difference in Alfmo game from last year. He looks perfectly fine and has run well. Now RG3 and the Oline, I've seen substantial differences in both their performances so far.

Re: Washington Redskins vs Detroit Lions Pregame Thread

Any word on Bush's injury status. I know he held out of practice yesterday, but is everybody assuming he will play?

He's 50/50 last I saw.

Given how bad our D has been they should probably sit him.

i'm assuming they juice him up before kickoff

Lions RB Reggie Bush is optimistic about playing Sunday, but he still hasn't been cleared by team doctors. SportingNewsMichigan.com: Michigan Sports News, all on one page

I think Shannahan said Forbath would not be allowed to do anything until Friday.

Won't know til the weekend. Judging from this article, I'd say he's still questionable.

Kai Forbath says his injured groin muscle is improving

I wonder if we can pry Joe Haden from Cleveland in the fire-sale over there.
