Re: Redskins Lions postgame

@skinsfaninok The expectations were justifiably high after winning the division last year. It's possible that Robert's injury dealt a serious blow to the team's psyche that they're still recovering from. That along with play calling issues. We're just not in harmony, yet.

Re: Redskins Lions postgame

For me, the problem is that they have not been all that competitive in any of the games played. Even in the Lions game there was not a feeling that the Redskins was going to pull it off. The offense is sputtering and too reliant on an injured player. The defense is terrible. The question becomes what is the solution?

I believe that Hasslet has to go. There has to be a message sent that the defense is unacceptable. I read an article where Josh Wilson was quoted in saying that it doesn't matter if teams get 1000+ yards on us as long as we win or they don't score. That mindset doesn't work. You need to give your offense better field position.

One important thing to keep in mind: teams that have great continuity from year to year don't have great continuity because they fear changing their starters, they just have a great player development system that promotes players from within right when they are entering their prime.

The Redskins don't have this. They didn't promote even one starter from within between 2012 and 2013. So what they have is the second oldest team in football (after the one that just beat us) thats just hanging on to declining vets because they feel they are limited to replace them only through current year draft picks and free agents (cap space).

So while it was a pretty impressive accomplishment that they were able to keep last year's team together, it also meant they're really struggling to improve the roster on last year.

Re: Redskins Lions postgame

I really think the biggest problem right now is the defense. They are just plain awful. I have NEVER seen such poor tackling. It is nearly comically.

The solution is to get better offensive players.

Or score less on defense.

I think alot of that ties back to the cap penalty.

Hall probably had his best game as a Redskin yesterday. And the two outside receivers on the Lions both went for 100 yards.

Re: Redskins Lions postgame

[QUOTE=KI Skins Fan;1028142]No, it's the historically bad defense! As long as the defense gives up 500 yards per game, the Skins will struggle to win, no matter what they do on offense or special teams.

conflagration?

The Skins could have won yesterday if the offense could have scored a touchdown. Let's not forget the goal is to score touchdowns which leads to points which leads to having a chance to win. The defense didn't lose the game yesterday. The offense did. That was and is painfully obvious. But the defense stinks yes.

Cap penalty or no cap penalty, a football team can choose it's veterans. You're stuck with the young talent you bring in because of rookie contracts and the waivers system, but the veteran market is different. You can always save money by cutting.

If the players in their first three seasons were struggling, and that's why the team was 0-3, you might suggest that the cap penalty was limiting the team from getting enough talent to compete. But the young players who were drafted have been thrust into the lineup almost immediately and have more than held their own.

If you make a list of guys who aren't helping, you get Fletcher and Meriweather near the top, but also Fred Davis, Will Montgomery, Tyler Polumbus, Stephen Bowen, Adam Carriker, and probably Josh Morgan (though I'm feeling more charatable yesterday after AlfMo's TD run). There's just a ton of cap dollars tied up there that have nothing to do with the penalty.

Unfortunately those are probably the two poorest plays of the games yesterday and hold the most scrutiny. Part of RG3 game which has grown this year is the check down, man he really knows how to pad the stat line.

Less RG3, more Alfmo and the running game. Not winning too many game throwing 50 times.
