    How'd it work out for Bellichick? You don't weaken an already marginal team just to make a point. There's a reason nobody has agreed with you.

    Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

    Of course the offense was the big problem. But if you don't want to give any blame to the defense for allowing that long 4th quarter drive that put the lead into double digits you would be wrong. They needed a stop, they gave up a touchdown.

    Because he was good for a long time, then very very good last year? Just a hunch. OK that was funny.

    D lineman take a few years to develop typically so I'm not too worried. I was however expecting a bigger impact at this point.

    Oh I think the defense played a role for sure. They gave up 2 fairly easy scores early to put the team behind, then when they needed a stop late they allowed the Colts to march down the field, take up a bunch of time, and got the td that gave them an insurmountable 2 score lead. Zach Brown was fantastic last year, many of us thought that was a crucial re-sign. I have no idea what has happened to him this year, Foster played pretty well yesterday. Smith and Kerrigan are kind of killing them and the Bama Boys have not had the expected impact to date.

    Yeah I can see why you wrote that. I'm more frustrated at my team than I am with Smith's play as this is the exact guy we traded for. I started by saying it could be worse, and it could be, but it's also clear this team with or without Alex Smith is going nowhere.

    Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Yeah let's slow down a bit on the Alex bashing. I'm a Kirk guy and you will never convince me it was a good move to let him walk. But we were lucky to get a QB at least this good, we could very well have gone into the season with Tyrod Taylor or worse. But it still sucks that our inept team put us in this position. Alex Smith is who he is and as I said in another thread down 2 scores late we have no hope, think the Colts fans would have felt the same had the score been reversed? As someone put it Bruce traded for a 34 year old QB who put us in a win now position without a roster able to contend now. The future appears hopeless.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    In fairness, at least earlier in the game, Smtih appeared to be looking downfield but either didn't find an open receiver or they dropped it. But let's not for a second allow last year to fool us, Alex Smith always has been a safe, short passer. That's who he is and to expect anything differently is naive. And that is why this team had zero chance late down 2 scores. Think Colts fans would have felt that way had the score been reversed?

    This is a really good post, Crabtree put up monster numbers in college and most thought he'd be a star. Instead he's just OK to pretty good, nothing more, but he was below that for many years. But I'm not sure I see Doc as a slot receiver, seems what he offers is best utilized outside.

    This is why I was debating against this dink and dunk offense after game 1. 14-3 even at the half appears to be too much to overcome. This offense is not only boring it's extremely limited. Sure he got aided by a BS roughing call but I'd like to point out that Kirk put up huge numbers and got the TD and 2 pt conversion in crunch time to tie the game, then led a drive that should have been a winner in OT. Pretty good for a guy many felt wasn't clutch.

    I knew WR was one of the most talked about need but I honestly saw a bounce back year from Crowder and perhaps a big leap by Doctson, I saw Richardson as another Alvin Harper. But man I never saw this group as this bad, they simply do not get open. If Doc busts can we finally close the case and confirm that Scott M's tenure here was yet another example of a smart, accomplished man showing up in Ashburn and instantly turning stupid?

    Post-game apathy thread: We're baaaack

    To see a stadium like that in the home opener after a win is very damning, then they proceeded to show no heart and an offense incapable of more than short pass completions. 14-3 appears insurmountable for this team, even if it's a first half score. What do they think that will do to attendance moving forward? I have missed 1 1/2 Redskins games since 1972, and those could not be helped. But I'm having a hard time understanding why I would stay up to see them lose to NO.

    Chris Thompson, the Redskins most important player

    I get all that. But it seems to me teams will be taking away all those short passes at some point and they simply have to develop some downfield options. Especially going up against the likes of Rodgers and Brees if they get down 2 scores late they will need to find a way to score in less than 14 plays.

    Outside of last year Alex Smith had a well deserved reputation as a guy who threw the safe, short pass. Don't get me wrong, if that is what the defense gave them I have no problem with it on Sunday. My point was I don't see teams in the future playing this way. The Eagles will crowd the line and play that underneath stuff much tighter, I would think most teams would considering the personnel of this offense.

    They have tried to fill that spot with middle round picks a few times with limited results but they really have not spent many picks on guards over the past several drafts. I was not in favor of using the 5th overall pick on a guard but you can certainly look at the idea of taking one in the 2nd or 3rd. It's my understanding that there were no guards that warranted that grade when they picked this year and if that's the case I'm fine passing and filling other needs. But either through FA or earlier in the draft they simply have to address this need.
