  1. I’m a fan of Devil’s Backbone, and not just because I’ve driven on their namesake, (and it’s a great stretch of road) lol. Here’s hoping this brew goes national, ‘cause I’d like to try it out.

    Man, Darius Leonard had a heck of a game - really tore the Skins a new one. Almost can’t believe Sprinkle literally dodged Leonard to run his route, resulting in a quick sack. To be fair, it’s quite possible (likely even) that he’s coached to try to avoid contact and one of the linemen were supposed to pick the blitz up. Sure was ugly and embarrassing though.
  3. Yep, that’s one of my reasons. Adds a speed rusher, McPhee and Smith are both FAs next year, he’d come cheap, he’s proven, knows the D, and Anderson is still a question mark. I’m not sure what’s going on with Kerrigan, but that’s a factor as well.
  4. Only a handful of truly negative plays stood out to me last week. One was McPee not only not engaging his guy, but just standing there watching the play. It was strange to say the least. Hopefully he’s made some plays/shown something otherwise. I’d strongly consider bringing in Galette, and I’d even consider a signing him for more than 1 year (for multiple reasons).

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Here’s my current thought (in case anyone cares). Good news - Thompson and Reed are our best playmakers. Smith traditionally relies heavily on TEs and backs. Bad news - Our two playmakers are very injury prone, and using them heavily can’t help that. Our receivers are not good as a whole, meaning (potentially) even more reliance on Reed/Thompson. Bright side - At least Smith spreads the ball around and we have Davis, and at some point Marshall (and Harris), waiting in the wings.

    @KDawg Man, how bad were those 4 snaps with Bergstrom?

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Yeah, I personally didn’t think that was catchable. Perhaps if he had gotten to the mark a tick earlier he could have started to slow down, allowing him to get his feet in. I don’t know. Also hurt to miss on that fade route. That was a good defensive play though (and bad luck for Doctson that the defender got his arm in there). Weird that for his size he’s so good at the diving, pluck off the turf type of catches. I think he’d be a much better fit for a qb like Luck that doesn’t mind throwing it to well covered receivers (and throwing back shoulder balls). Just feels like a mismatch - maybe/probably for Gruden’s offense, and definitely for the qbs he’s had.

    Redskins vs Colts Prediction Thread: Will the Redskins "Luck" Out?

    I mentioned before that I wonder if this was just a bad matchup for us, and this is one example. I believe the speed of their backers really hurt us - they got to the gaps quickly, got out to the flats to limit YAC from the underneath stuff, etc. Colts had a good plan to protect their corners and cause major problems for our oline. I’m guessing that, with hindsight, this would have been a good game to employ a fullback. I’m not sure why Gruden didn’t change from his original plan to more slants/drags/crossers. Thompson (or Sprinkle) should have been used more in pass pro, IMO, and we should have challenged their young line backing corp with the TEs and wrs. I can understand this wasn’t the original plan, but the adjustment should have been on the table. I don't have the same disdain for Doctson that many seem to, but I don’t think he fits with Smith (and didn’t with Kirk either)... particularly against a D focused on stopping the deep passes.

    Redskins vs Colts Prediction Thread: Will the Redskins "Luck" Out?

    A few things that confuse/baffle me. Why we didn’t seemingly have a plan to attack soft zone and cover 2. Why we (still) struggle so much with stunts. How did we have so many negative plays? How are we giving Thompson such a heavy workload (he’s been taking all sorts of nasty hits, hasn’t he?) yet we don’t have a capable backup for him? Why didn’t we see rollouts and bootlegs... something to move the pocket? At the end of the day, I’m willing to say this was just a really bad matchup for us - cover 2 with fast linebackers and a dline adept at stunting. A good/elite qb that can get rid of the ball quickly. Overall, I’m concerned about our run D, but I thought the D as a whole played pretty well. Lots to cleanup, but they were put in a tough spot by our O. The offense just looked pathetic... and a good part of that seemed to be coaching.

    Game Day Thread- Colts at Redskins

    I’m nervous and excited for this one. On paper I really like our chances, but Luck is a heck of a qb.

    Redskins vs Colts Prediction Thread: Will the Redskins "Luck" Out?

    Man, I’m getting a little nervous about this game, in part because of a few factors - Luck’s ability to move (and throw of course), our unproven secondary, the possibility of overconfidence after last week, and because it’s our home opener. I’m also a bit worried that focusing on pressuring Luck leads to more success for the Colts in the ground game. Here’s hoping I’m way off base.

    Yep, and not just his ads... his interviews with Ellen, Colbert and Young Turks, along with his Town Halls are the same.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Personally, I see him as more of the intermediate type - the ‘chain mover’ Morneblade has been talking about. He does have the hands to challenge deep sometimes though. He really caught my eye in College and I hope to see him used more. Not as dynamic as our 1st 3 maybe, but a Ryan Grant type with better hands and more height. I agree, and I think it’s even easier to feel this way since our starters are fairly lackluster (or unproven/inconsistent, if you’d prefer). I hope we don’t lose Crowder though - he brings something unique and can be a big help to a qb.
