Ten observations: Redskins over Colts 16-3

1. For a first start, John Beck was pretty solid. Once again, it all starts with the running game. The Redskins get the defense to stretch so far that it opens up the backside. The scheme does a great job of getting guys open Ė between the 20s. But the Redskins, and this goes back to last season too, have yet to figure out how to get it in the end zone. Much harder to cause that sort of confusion the closer you are to the end zone. Perhaps it could come down to just needing more playmakers, where you donít have to rely on the scheme to always get someone open. In Houston, you could just get the ball to Andre Johnson. Theyíve managed 867 yards in two games but only 32 points; that needs to improve. But thatís still a lot of yards and they keep giving themselves chances. It certainly beats just gaining a few yards and scoring few points. And then the running game must be able to sometimes slam it up the middle. Itís not built that way, however; especially the line. Regardless, the run game gave them a chance at big plays and helped sustain drives. Itís a good start.
