Yeah, for all of the we want BM back to help with the safety position, I really haven't seen the guy do much. Morris needs to sit his ass down and teach him how to wrap up. All he does is launch himself when he is attempting to make a tackle. I don't know if it is his injury or just the way he plays.

Interesting that Rambo was only cramping and never saw anymore action. JW must have done a decent job at FS to not warrant his return.

Re: Redskins Lions postgame

The one thing RG3 can do immediately to help turn this team around is to not commit two completely unforced turnovers.

Outside of that, none of this mess is on the quarterback.

Meriweather has been awful. I understand that he's probably the one guy on the roster who is trying to gut it out at less than solid health, but he starts and finishes every play out of position, and you need to be some kind of athlete to make up for that.

Agreed 1000%.

Although without his pretty bad turnovers, this team might be 2-1 going back to Philly.

Still, while I don't think Rg3 has played great, I do see him getting better and more comfortable and still happy to have him as my QB.

Not enough trips to the redzone.

Re: Redskins Lions postgame

Ha, I just thought of something. JW did help shore up the safety position we only gave up 386 passing yards to Stafford instead of the 480+ we gave up to Rodgers. Either that or GB is just better by 100 yards....

I noticed more than a few times yesterday ( the announcers alluded to it later in the broadcast ) that the back end of the defense is not working very well together pre snap at all. Miss communication, bad alignment, sometimes guys on the outside look like they have no idea what the play call are or thier assignments, and of course frustration. This is before the ball is even snapped. The Lions two scoring drives in the first half is where this was evident.

That's all on the coaching and the LB getting the calls out to the defense.

I've heard a couple of analysts note that it doesn't seem like anyone on the back half knows what coverages they are in. B. Mitch said he was watching the Packers game with Shawn Springs and Springs wondered numerous times what coverage scheme we were running because it didn't make any sense. It goes to something that Keim said years ago from a former coach that while Haslett has some sound blitz packages, his coverage schemes are very suspect and sometimes flat out flawed.

Examples, Riley man up on Cobb last week? On the final TD to Megatron he had Kerrigan and Riley in zone with Merriweather over the top inside the 10 yard line? Really?!?! I'd rather us pressure and play man on the back end. At least we could get some hurries or sacks because our coverage unit is pathetic.

Re: Redskins Lions postgame

I'm just insanely frustrated with how thins have turned out. I don't know.

I tend to agree that Robert is getting better with each game. We just have to patient. This is only his third game this year. Didn't get much work in training camp or preseason. I really think things will click with this team. As bad as the defense has been, I can't imagine where'd we be without Kerrigan and some of the plays by D.Hall. We'll find our way.

A change in defensive coaching might be in order. I don't know if Rah is the answer, but Has' time may have run it's course here in D.C. Bottom line, until Robert starts to turn it up a notch the team will probably continue to play spotty instead of dominating football.

Yeah, and a couple times Riley was making the defensive calls with Barnett in for Fletcher. I don't know any way we can evaluate defensive changes made before the snap, but I will say that we got so used to Fletcher getting us in good alignment right before the snap that we simply can't be the same defense if Fletcher isn't on the field.

Fletcher's season to date is an excellent example of why there aren't any historical comparables for a 38 year old linebacker. Typically, they spend the pre-snap phase on a beach somewhere.

I mean how is it that the redskins get worse after a 10 win season?? It just sucks man, I was really looking forward to this year and it really seems like it's already over
