An entry back in the blog, Hap had closed out saying

Quote

Over all I would say the Redskins played a very sloppy game.  Same penalties on multiple plays so I'm sure they can be corrected.  I think I counted 5 lined up in the neutral zone by the D, that can be corrected.  What worries me is the running game, I did not see much there. The secondary gave up some really long plays, not a couple but several.

So, let's take a look at their 10 longest plays on Offense & then the 10 longest allowed by the Defense.

:1386:Atlanta GA-. Welcome to the Extremeskins coverage of the first preseason game and the beginning of the  season.  I'm Hap Haszard in the press box and Zoony will be covering the sidelines.  A few of the players are on the field warming up and stretching Falcons on one end and Redskins on the other.

Great view of the field from the press box, much better than Fedex or TampaBay which are the other stadiums I've been at.  You would have to pay good money for these seats.

Redskins are wearing white jerseys and gold pants, Falcons red jersey and white pants.

12 minutes until game time and the stands are flat empty.

And the Redskins are taking the field faint boos are heard, from the few Atlanta fans here.

Redskins first team moving the ball well.  Big run but holding penalty caused 1st and 20.

Redskins first series resulted in a 54 yard punt to Falcons 1.

Redskins D held Atlanta to 3 yards on 3 plays, Atlanta punts and McCoy is in for Washington's second series.

Second series, Redskins 41 yard FG by Hopkins.

Redskins kickoff resulted in a touchback, Atlanta's ball at the 25 yard line.

Atlanta's second possession was -1 yards, Defense is balling.

Washington starts 3rd series at the 28 yard line.  Run game still needs a lot of work, 3 and out for Washington

Atlanta's 3rd series 2 first downs. End of the first quarter.

Redskins 3 Atlanta 0

:1386:2nd quarter:1386:

47 yard pass to Washington 12

Run of 10 yards to Redskins 2 ylard line. False start 1st and goal from 7 now 3rd and goal from the 11.  Defensive penalty 5 yards to 6 yard line, incomplete pass, FG Atlanta. Tied at 3.

Washington's first series 2nd half - McCoy at  QB - 3rd down and 5 - McCoy runs for 8 to get a first down.  Washington's run game needs a lot of work.

False start on the Redskins, 2nd down 16, 3rd down and 11, 4th down and punt.  Huge pass by Atlanta 68 yards first down Washington 4, run to  foot line, TD Atlanta 10 -3

3 and out for Redskins after a nice return by Thorpe.

Atlanta is marching down the field against the Redskins D.  Cravens stopped a run in the backfield. He is having a good game. Despite penalties, Atlanta converts a 42 yard FG to make it 13 - 3 at the half.

:1386:Halftime:1386:

 The Redskins played decent defense during the first quarter, but really stunk it up in the 2nd quarter.  The offense really wasn't burning down the barn either.  I know its preseason and all but it looks from here like there is a lot of work that needs to be done.  Now its time for the guys who will be working at 7-11 in a month or so to show what they can do.

:1386:Third Quarter:1386:

And they just did kick return by Atlanta 101 yards its now 20-3, Hail.

I know this is preseason, and the first team was only in for a series so I'm not upset over the play but there is going to have to be some work on penalties. They are causing a lot of problems.

Sudfeld in at QB - first down for the Redskins. Run loss of 2, 2nd and 12. about a 40 yd pass dropped by Ross. 3rd and 12, incomplete 4th down. Punt time.

5 million yard punt actually 64 yards.

Atlanta's either 3rd or 4th string QB is in now.   Atlanta runs and Cravens stopped it in the back field for 5 yard loss.  Pass to Redskins 42, pass to Redskins 17, run for 1 yard stopped by Trail. 4th and 11. 36 yard field goal is good. 23-3 Atlanta.

Redskins are good running and passing to Atlanta 17. Run to 1. Flags everywhere on next play.  Offset penalties replay first down at 2 foot line. TD Redskins Kelly.  23-10

The game on both both teams is getting sloppy. Cravens is really having a decent game but he is in against 3rd and 4th string players now.  Redskins' roughing passer penalty gives Atlanta a first and 10. Atlanta has been going deep on the Redskins, this time it didn't work. 4th down. Delay of game by Atlanta.

The Atlanta crowd is amusing themselves by doing the wave. Its a bit hard to do with so few in the stadium.  Redskins punt out of bounds. Atlanta 1st at 30.

:1386:End of the 3rd Quarter Atlanta 23 Redskins 10:1386:

Fumble Redskins recover at Atlanta 34. Play being reviewed. Confirmed to be a fumble.

Redskins run for 3, run for first down, 3rd down incomplete pass. 4th down. Redskins going for it. Pass to Ross for 1st down. Zebra error, reset the play clock and try it again. Hey its preseason for them too. First down Redskins, Run gain of 5, Run gain of 2, Pass TD. Extra Point is good. 23-17

Things are getting so sloppy its not worth reporting on whats happening.  I'll report scores if any happen.

After a series of defensive penalties, Atlanta misses a field goal attempt. The Redskins take over and now the offense is producing their own penalties. 1 minute left in the game.  

Over all I would say the Redskins played a very sloppy game.  Same penalties on multiple plays so I'm sure they can be corrected.  I think I counted 5 lined up in the neutral zone by the D, that can be corrected.  What worries me is the running game, I did not see much there. The secondary gave up some really long plays, not a couple but several.

In honor of Extremeskins' 12th season covering the Redskins from behind the curtain, we are enhancing our Redskins game-day coverage. Beginning this year, our week-to week coverage will include this all in one place. Here, this space will be dedicated to coverage-related content such as:

  • Our world-class game coverage featuring behind the scenes views from the sidelines, locker-room and press box
  •  
  • The top Redskins tailgates at FedEx Field and opponent stadiums
  •  
  • The best tailgating recipes, shared by your fellow 'Skins' fans
  •  
  • A list of the best venues to visit in order to meet up with Redskins fans around FedEx and in opposing cities - we will visit these and provide our report along with photos and other tidbits
  •  
  • Fan polls - Every week ES will publish a poll relevant to that week's game asking fans to share their insight. We will then publish the results prior to kick-off.
  •  
  • More!

 

More? More what? 

Why more cowbell of course! 

 

We are excited about these changes and hope you enjoy them as well. Check back throughout the week for updates and announcements surrounding Redskins game-day coverage. And with that, let's get ready to defend the East!
