Yeah, it wasn't a complete list. But on a game by game basis over a season, they stick out the most to me.

1st down play calling in general has been a huge issue. By hook or crook we need to find better ways to improve our per play average on 1st down. 2nd and 4, the whole playbook is open. 2nd and 8, its typically going to be a pass, especially with Gruden.

Balance in the run pass and balance on what downs we do them would be nice. Gruden just gives up on the run too easily.

Agree whole heartedly with your 1st point.

Predictable play calling play calling on 1st down has been an issue for a while now.

On Cooley's old, he would lament Gruden sticking with the "duo" run play over and over despite the lack of success.

So sick of it.

With regard to your second point, I like the idea of balance in the abstract because balance represents the notion you mention, being able to draw from the entire playbook.

I like, however, the how the patriots are willing to completely disregard the notion of balance for the sake of balance.

They find a defense's weakness and exploit it over and over until the D adjusts.

Whether it's running 4 draws in a row or 5 short in routes in a row, they try to step on the D's neck.

Re: Panthers Pre game thread

So according to Dan Steinbergh, Josh Norman is becoming somewhat of a cancer on the team:

So here's something. Kevin Sheehan, longtime host of the Skins pregame show, reported on his podcast today that Josh Norman was benched last week for not taking his headphones off during Gruden's halftime talk. Here's Sheehan's report. Listen here twitter.com/kevinsheehanDC…

If thats true, that's not a miss a series suspension. That's a you're suspended as long as I'm allowed to, pursuant to the labor contract. We can get no interceptions without you. He's been giving up ass all season and he's upset?

I like a lot of things the Patriots do, those bastards. If we could run the same play(s) over and over with success, I'd love it, but we haven't proven we can do that. I'm not sure what our go to play or type play even is. I miss when it was letting Jordan Reed dominate (when actually playing).

That really scares me about this week. I think we'll see your best.


Welcome back Coffee. I appreciate what you’re saying - a team that just got humiliated (and boy did we) ought to be a dangerous team. Truth is, none of us knows which Redskins team will show up. The Panthers, on the other hand, will run hard and play hard on D. Every week. Still, you nearly lost at home to a lousy Giants team. But it’s hard to think the matchup doesn’t favor your squad.

Kevin Sheehan, longtime host of the official Redskins pregame show on The Team 980 radio in Washington, said on his podcast Friday that Norman put on a pair of headphones while coaches were talking in the locker room, and either ignored or didn't hear coach Jay Gruden tell him to remove them. Sheehan's source said he believes Gruden removed the headphones.

"At halftime, according to my source, he put his headphones on while the coaches were addressing the team," Sheehan said (via Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post). "Jay Gruden told him to take them off. He either didn't hear Jay or ignored him, but with that, I was told, the headphones were removed.

"By whom? My source believes it was Gruden who removed the headphones from Norman's head. But regardless, Gruden benched him to start the third quarter, and that was the reason why."


Sheehan also noted there are "not a lot of good vibes" between Norman and the coaching staff.

"My source also tells me there is not a lot of good vibes when it comes to Norman among several of the coaches right now. Not much they can do about it," Sheehan said. "They're hopeful he begins to play better. They're hopeful he acts professionally the rest of the year."

Norman, a first-team All Pro in 2015, is the highest paid cornerback in the NFL, thanks to the five-year, $75 million deal he signed with Washington in 2016. Pro Football Focus rates him "average" at his position.

Guys on the team like Jonathan Allen and Dunbar have to be livid at this shit. Beyond unacceptable. He'll for sure be cut this off season.

Makes me feel like Josh got stuck in his heel gimmick... We all felt like this man brought a new level of excitement to this locker room, and now he's doing shit like that... Unacceptable.

Doesn't speak highly of Jay's coaching abilities either.

Thanks, Calia.

The problem with the Panthers is, even when the better team, they let the other team stick around. It bites us in the butt costing the game a time or two each year, and we're always having to pull out last minute wins in the ones we do win. So, I think you're right that Carolina SHOULD win (based on records and last week's games), but this is set up perfectly for your guys to take it from us.

No offense, but I hope so. Every game's important, but we're in such a fight to keep up with the Saints and at a pivotal point where we see what we really have as we get a few guys back from injury/suspension. Based on our respective divisions, I think a loss actually hurts Carolina worse than it does Washington.

(And thank you for the invite, but my family lost everything to dad's gambling when I was a kid, so I'm not one to make even friendly wagers. That is NOT correction to you; just explanation.)
