This team is NOT this bad. We're in a tough situation transitioning Griffin back into games but the defense is the real problem. On paper we're talented and deep, so maybe Haslett is the culprit or replacing him might motivate the D, but the players we've put together are not the problem, it's their execution for some unknown reason.
Our secondary is absolutely a personell problem, and is far from talented and deep. A keg of the strongest kool aid in the world would not make that any different.

Perry Riley AMA tomorrow at 4:15pm.

Wonder if he'll answer anything real about that shitty defense.

We might be 0-4 coming out of the bye and at that point, i think it would be good to fire Haslett. The defense cannot get any worse, as others have pointed out...
Defenses have adjusted, we don't want to expose Griffin too much, he's still not 100%, situations have dictated things (playing from behind), etc.

That said we ran it plenty last week.

Re: Redskins Lions postgame

IMO Until Gryphon gets fully back in the groove and can beat folks with both legs and arm, defenses will keep stacking the LOS to stop Morris. In such situations the read option becomes just a play action pass.

One of these weeks a defense is going to stack the LOS, only to find that RGIII is back in the groove. On that day RGIII will have a monster game.

We haven't abandoned it. We ran it about 6-7 times which is about average for us. It's just not as successful because defense don't care if Robert runs, and when he does he is a lot slower.

Nor would switching DCs in the middle of the season.

Alf has had some pretty decent games the last two games, so if the defenses are stacking the LOS, it's not working.

Just makes me realize how special of a player Alfred Morris is. Glad he's on our team!

That 21 yard scramble was pretty impressive though. I think the issue is that Robert's initial "take off" is slow, but once he gets into second gear, he's just as deadly with his legs as he was last year. In retrospect, I'm thinking that regardless of III's health, it was/is the plan of the Shannys to reduce the amount of read option this year, because they want Griffin to continue developing as a true NFL passing quarterback. Eventually, I see this paying off for Griffin down the road. Griffin is not always going to be a dangerous runner, so he's going to have to develop his drop back passing skills and improve on those mechanics.

Re: Redskins Lions postgame

Hopefully we can get the ground game cranking soon. I'd love to see Morris with 20-25 carries and Helu with a few too. That would go a long way in helping the D too. The less they're on the field the better.

One thing that Gibbs I learned about his team: They could score points and looked explosive, but they couldn't win ball games. Once the offensive philosophy was changed in favor of a more ball controlled offense, they started winning. I think the best defense the Redskins have right now is a heavy dose of Alfred Morris.

Changing DC will make orakpo not get dragged 5 yards by a backup RB?

If you meant read option you are correct. Trading away 3 first rounders to make RG3 a 100 % drop back passer is absurd. The read option was made for RG3 and they better get back to it or watch this thing get real ugly.
