    Redskins vs Texans Prediction Thread: Pessimistically Optimistic?

    Scary matchup against a great defense with a very good QB... We haven't been putting up points vs bad defenses, so I'm not sure how we keep up in this one. That being said, 23-17 Skins.
  2. Dez practice 1: looks to have suffered a torn achilles. Hahahahah... not laughing at him, just at all of the people who were beating up the FO for not signing him.
  3. Hahaha you're too much... next is "Gruden should have hired a better equipment staff who would have ordered better gloves so that Docston wouldn't have dropped those passed." Enough already man. And no, the DL was terrible. Go re-watch the game, I already did. They were consistently tossed wherever the Falcons wanted them. You have to be extremely naive to place no blame on the DL when we gave up 6.5 yard avg rush.

    Redskins Lead NFC East

    This is a very educated fanbase, we all knew that our success had come against predominantly run-first/bad QB teams. And, good QBs chewed us up and spit us out. The Falcons fit this mold and did to us what we all hoped to avoid. We've invested heavily, recently, in the D, so they need to be the ones to carry the team. Giving up long scoring drive after long scoring drive is something that we'll never overcome. We don't have a great offense, but this game could have been different had it not been for the penalty and drops on the first few drives. We're all very aware that we don't have the studs on offense to come back from a large deficit, or much adversity at all for that matter. Especially now, given the recent injuries. I think that we're saying the same thing?

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    I won't ask you to prove it, that would be digging back a bit too far. I recall everyone upset to see him go, including myself, but most people didn't think he was ready to be a head coach. You also need to remember the situation and the politics of it. I don't think that you're understanding. I assume that your take was that the second that the Skins heard about McVay interviewing in LA, the should have fired Gruden and tried to hire McVay. What if McVay said no? What if the FO wanted to keep Gruden to give them a better chance of retaining Cousins? There is so much more to this than "Fire Gruden, Hire McVay" and the way that you're presenting it is extremely naive.

    Agreed. And the same can be said for the other side of the coin, giving up 35 points per game isn't sustainable... unless you're the Chiefs or Saints. We don't have a potent offense, and given our recent string of injuries on the OL and WR, I don't imagine that this will change for the better. We will win with our defense. We've invested a lot of resources in them and they are almost 100% healthy, they need to play much better.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    For kicks I went back five years and looked at the Adjusted Games Lost stats. Almost every team that was in the bottom 5 in injuries that wasn't led by Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady (Luck also defied this stat, but remember that was a dumpster fire of a division in 2014), not only missed the playoffs, but didn't exceed .500. It boils down to this- if you have a great QB, a generational talent, or you have no divisional competition, you can overcome being killed by the injury bug. If your team isn't a beneficiary of this, which most aren't, your ceiling gets lowered.

    Aaron Rodgers... EDIT- they were one of the most injured teams, but having Aaron Rodgers helps. That's someone who we've never had.

    And look what Nick Foles did as the replacement: 115 QBR in the playoffs. The rest of the team didn't need to overcome adversity, the continued to play their game. If you added 10 more guys to that injury list, I believe it may have been a different story. Having "them" and having "the most in the league" are two different things. We're a good, not great, team when healthy. Losing one or two players is one thing, hell, even losing Alex Smith may not be a huge dropoff. But losing in mass, especially at one position leaves a gaping hole.

    Hindsight is 20/20. I assume you were on these boards two years ago, sure we didn't want to lose McVay, but no one said "fire Jay and promote McVay." Also remember, McVay only interviewed for this one job, it all escalated quickly and it was a shock to everyone, in and outside of DC that he was the Rams hire. You don't think it's valid? Most-injured team two years in a row doesn't impress you. If you recall, we were looking pretty good last year before the injury bug hit us. Then this year we were healthy, 5-2, and got decimated this past weekend. We certainly didn't lose because of injuries, but this will certainly hurt us moving forward. Anyone who truly believes in "next man up" doesn't comprehend this sport.

    Does Doctson even care?

    Tyreek Hill only fell because of off-field issues. I believe that he had a domestic case on his hands during the draft.

    Going to be tough to play less scared behind the OL which we'll be sporting. Penalties and drops killed our first few drives. Injuries killed our game. 14 points won't win many games, but the defense was the problem. I love how everyone points to the offense being the problem, completely ignoring the atrocious play by our defense. They allowed 100% 3rd down conversion rate and allowed the Falcons to eat up the ToP in the first half. They then allowed the Falcons to come out of half and eat up another chunk of the clock and score a TD. I mentioned it in the post-game thread, I would ask that everyone who's overly-critical of the offense go back and re-watch the game. This one is on the defense.

    At 5-3 We Are Now Officially Trapped

    Oh I don't know. There are a couple more important numbers to consider... like record, for one.
  14. Giving up 28 points in just over half of a game sucks even more. The Bucs are a poor man's Falcons. They have no run game, but a very good pass game. Fitz makes mistakes and I'm hoping the loss to the Falcons gives us a wake-up call like the Saints did. 31-23 Skins.
