Re: Cards Pregame Thread

According to Pro Football Focus, Washington’s line allowed 17 pressures on 36 dropbacks — the fourth-most pressures allowed league wide. And of those 17, the analytics website viewed Christian and Martin as responsible for nine of them (Five for Martin, four for Christian).

“They got smacked in the face early,” Rivera said.

Rivera said he liked the way Martin and Christian responded, but as Washington prepares for the Arizona Cardinals this week, the left side of the line remains a cause for concern. On Sunday, the line will be tasked with stopping Cardinals pass-rusher Chandler Jones, whose 61 sacks since 2016 leads the league.

Re: Cards Pregame Thread

Power Rankings for Week 2, we still get no respect as usual.


We're at 28. The Lions and Browns are ahead of us!

Filthydelphia at 16 despite the fact we beat the crap out of them.

Cowgurls who lost, looked like garbage and lost several key players at 14.


I do like how they still called us the Redskins in the Eagles' blurb.

This. Containing Murray is the key. Study the AZ-SF game film.

Re: Cards Pregame Thread

Win or lose i just want to see them play a full 60 minutes. We haven't had that in quite a few years. Even in our win last week, we came out slow. Adjustments were key, and it was amazingly fun to watch....but we need to hit the ground running, and play a full game. Im trying to figure out how to watch it out of market...like, legit. I have to call about getting sunday ticket in my apartment through an app...this whole covid thing is making it impossible to go to my local bar. Sucks being an out of market fan.

To me it’s all about one thing, defending the Air Raid offense. Their coach had another offseason of installing it against NFL defenses and we saw growth last week against a strong 9ers Team. Hopkins talent will transcend in any offense but Murray fit for what they want to do is perfect.

Murray is never under center and running the ball takes a backseat to a fast passing attack. It’s very much a rhythm offense and Kingbury is trying to get as many plays as possible in a game.

Ways to stop should play to our strengths on defense, winning 1 on 1 pass rushing against their avg-below avg Oline and disguising multiple zone based coverages with some zone blitzing nuance thrown in.

I expect less beef up front with more athletic front (less Payne and Settle, More Matty I and RK). Our CB should be confident after last week performance, they will have to have a big week. Will be interesting to see who will be assigned to Murray...Collins or one of the LB. Apke needs to be better this week.

Offense, I expect us to get the Run game going this week. More Jd And Gibby touches out the backfield. Arizona’s dline isn’t as strong or as stout as Philly, I like our Oline to bounce back a little bit.

Hail!
The NFL version of the "Air Raid" is not what you were used to seeing in college. They run far more than anyone thought they would. Murray is damn good at just drop back passing too. They have a good team here in AZ!!

Re: Cards Pregame Thread

They will have to be able to sustain long drives and win time of possession. They can do that if they are able to put together a solid running game, or a combination of running and using the backs out of the backfield. I'm not convinced this team can run the ball though, not after what I saw last week. I think they averaged about 2 yards per carry last week . So it could be a long day. I do think the Eagles D is probably better overall than the Cardinals D...but there's only one week of work to compare them. We'll find out this weekend.

I think the defense is going to have to carry this team again (as they probably will all year unless the O-line play improves), and they'll have to do it against a more potent offense than last week.

A defensive / special teams TD would be nice...

Nfl.com has us at 23 up from 31 which looks a lot better. And based on the O performance I'd say that's fair.

Re: Cards Pregame Thread

Per John Keim and the injury report:

Full practice today for 2 potential staters on defense who missed last week: Thomas Davis and Kendall Fuller.

Big news!

Unfortunately, sunday ticket is only real option for those people like us who do not live in the area. I used to try find free streaming games but it always got messed up or too many ads coming on frequently, I gave up and bought sunday ticket last year for the full price. I did the math and I realized I probably would have spent a little more if I went to restaurant/bar for every Redskins game because of drinks, food and tip. With the sunday ticket, you will pay $296, which is $18.50 per game. The cost of per game goes down if you use it to watch other games as well so it is worthwhile if you love football games.
