  1. Saints vs. Redskins Post Game Assessments

    I bet we went cover 2/3 prevent on those last 2 drives. How hard is it for even a noob WR to run where the zone defenders aren't? I hate (unless it works) going man all day, and then in crunch time switch to zone, and lose. Odds may say late zone cough prevent works, but just think it is too easy for accurate QBs to suddenly come to life. Prevent is good for milking the clock, and preventing a quick score, but that is about it. In doing so, you sacrifice pressure on the QB. Which is an understated part of the game IMO. I still contend a quick score is nothing to fear, for then our offense gets the ball back with more time. It was on display yet again yesterday, we just choked away the possession.
  2. How do you feel about the Receiving corps?

    Agreed. It is remarkable how quickly the wheels came off the wagon. First down, clock stopped, in FG range, on the road, a big dog.... all with enough time to run a play to the center of the field, and still have time to spike it. Turns out it was too good to be true. Why can't we have nice things. Every year is basically trying to eek out 8-8 and to squeak into the playoffs.
  3. How do you feel about the Receiving corps?

    I thought I heard Aikman say it was Vernon Davis that gave the free pass... either way I think it was likely a missed assignment, otherwise Kirk should have at least glanced over to his left knowing a guy would be free. Before getting absolutely clobbered. Maybe Kirk screwed up, who knows for certain.

    LOL at Grant waltzing into the endzone I said it last week, Cousins has to trust Doctson whether he likes it or not - we need them producing to have a chance this year. And sure as silk Kirk came out firing at him, even though he was covered. And Josh did great making plays on the contested balls. It took a while, but our boy is all grown up. Kirk, that is. He is finally comfortable throwing 50/50's.

    Did Allen panic press his review buzzer when the league called him about the unintentional intentional grounding? The ice pack ain't helping the grapefruits this morning.
  6. Thanks for sharing
  7. Saints vs. Redskins Post Game Assessments

    I wonder much longer after Kirk commenced grounding the ball, would he have been under imminent pressure.... .5 seconds? Does Kirk have to see the pressure, for it to be imminent? QBs have internal clocks and can sense pressure. IG is a judgement call and we got screwed, but the game wasn't over. Sheehan is pissed at Kirk for burning off 9 seconds after the grounding call at the LOS, calling out the Mike etc. After the 10 second run off, the clock was ticking and we were doing checks at the line, and Kirk still got sacked. He or Davis made a mistake IMO, Davis released and Kirk got blindsided by his man. Cooley said Davis's hand looks like he has elephantiasis.
  8. How do you feel about the Receiving corps?

    I heard the 980 guys (Galdi) theorizing they gave the backup corner help over top covering Doctson, which opened up Davis and Crowder... and of course Ryan Grant. I heard Cooley said Grant was wide open for a TD on the grounding play (or the one immediately afterwards). Another kick in the walnuts.

    I hate how IGs are now called by committee and long after the play. Usually ones first reaction is the correct one and refs second guess themselves given enough time. What the hell do they need time to think about. I would have liked to have seen Kirk first and then Jay heavily lobbying their case in that critical moment right after the play, and maybe they did for all I know. I am not sure I like Kirk lowering his head and taking hits to get that extra yard. We are toast without him. When Doctson vanished, I figured he may have gotten nicked up. I also thought Mo Harris would have a huge game. It's hard to find fault with the pass play calling since we did well but its interesting to discuss nonetheless. I too thought Jay hastily called that timeout when Spike Lee was a candidate. And don't like that he has to juggle play calling and timeouts... not sure both are best for him. Kamara bobbling his TD was another kick in the nuts, us fans seeing the ball flying through the air..... incomplete or INT... nope. TD. Just our ****ing luck.
  10. The Skins RB situation....

    Sigh. The fateful run - it does seem more complicated than it needed to be... too many chances for something to go wrong.
  11. Saints vs. Redskins Post Game Assessments

    Yep, he may have bailed on the play, and quickly to preserve time. Maybe tried to make it look like a simple incorrect route and got punked. He and Jay should have lobbied early and often if it was an incorrect route, or not. Imminent pressure and non imminent pressure is only about .25 seconds difference, maybe .5? What if he felt there was IP, but really wasn't. Is a throw away, allowed then.
  12. Saints vs. Redskins Post Game Assessments

    Ugh. Hate to fault the O for anything but that Cousins IG really hurt and was the play of the game. Even if it was the wrong route, he should be able to see no one there, right? The other, was Jay feeling it trying to smash Perine on 3rd and 1. A team was literally never more ripe for PA all season, since we finally had a back at 100+ yards. Our D looked in prevent/zone on those final 2 drives... not sure but if so I don't approve as per usual. I seem to remember the death sentence 3 man rush. The Allen challenge was not a 100% terrible idea up 15 late, but he needs to actually watch the replay first. Take his buzzer. It sucks they couldn't win that one for CT, who has carried this team as much as anyone this far.
  13. The Skins RB situation....

    HAHA⁹ is right. A great day, largely without CT for significant time. How about Perine with a breakout game. He had been slowly trending better and it was actually pretty easy to see coming. Never give up hope, never surrender . Sucks ass about CT. Our goose may be cooked. Perine may have to take on some of his work if Marshall doesn't get up to speed quick. I was really bummed to see his first drop today, but it was 3rd/forever and facing 2 guys in the flat.
