  1. They kind of shut down the Kirk talk thanks to that bonehead bobandweave. But you made a really good observation that I missed so I wanted to address it with you. But don't want to get a vacation from here. Hope you don't mind the PM...  So... here it is: 

     

    That's a good catch. Huge difference in sack yards. Part of that I believe is that Kirk is willing to sit back in the pocket and look for receivers longer. This is why when they get to him, he is deeper. It's also why he loses more fumbles as there are fewer teammates around. It's also what allows him to make plays further down field. Alex gets so nervous so early and starts jumping back to the line of scrimmage almost as soon as he drops back. So when they get to him he is closer to line (less sack yards) and more teammates around (lower lost fumbles). But he has those happy feet so bad he never gets truly set so he can drive the ball, especially on ling passes. He also will not be able to see over the line as well to see guys down field. If the D get their hands up he will not see anything not in a passing lane created by a gap between defenders. 

     

    Agree with the rest. 

     

    Guys will miss passes sometimes. Would like for him to have hit it. But not getting hung up on one missed play. My bigger issue with Alex is more consistency and being just a little more aggressive. If he could play more like he did at AZ and in the 2nd half against Tampa, we would seriously be fine.

      I can't say I have ever got a PM..

       

      Great comments. I see the happy feet too. But Sacks are SUCH killers to the game and the drive.

       

      I honestly do think our offense will get better with time. As DJ has gotten better with his second year in the system, I believe next year could be the breakout year for our offense.

       

      However, Alex takes less sacks and I honestly think he is more aware of everything going on. He may not be better at passing the ball, but I think he can bridge us the gap for a few years and teach a new young QB in a year or two how to be a QB in the NFL.

    What is Wrong with Alex Smith?

    Look at the sack yardage though! Thats a negative of 8.65 yards for KC in 2017 vs a negative of 5.2 yards PER SACK. Thats an average of extra free yards per game. Sacks and Turnovers are drain the defense and moral of the team. I'm okay with a little extra conservative play. I do wish Alex hit Vernon on that deep ball yesterday though.

    What is Wrong with Alex Smith?

    The stats aren't that much different. And honestly, we're winning games. And We're not turning the ball over. Do I want better? Of course. I think he can improve. https://www.pro-football-reference.com/play-index/pcm_finder.cgi?request=1&sum=0&player_id1_hint=Kirk+Cousins&player_id1_select=Kirk+Cousins&fromyear_1=2018&toyear_1=2018&player_id1=CousKi00&idx=players&player_id2_hint=Alex+Smith&player_id2_select=Alex+Smith&fromyear_2=2018&toyear_2=2018&player_id2=SmitAl03&idx=players

    Pathetic crowds at home opener

    Living in Indiana is tough to go to a Redskins game. One of these days I'm gonna fly out and go.. It's two flights and a hotel. Kind of spendy. I may try to go to the road game on Saturday 12/22 vs the Titans. I can drive there and keep the costs down. Screw the colts. #HTTR

    What Bye Week Adjustments Would You Make?

    Did you know we've given up the 5th least amount of 1st downs so far this year?

    2018 Season Injury News

    We definitely have a rookie WR problem. Doctson too didn't play but two games (I think) of his rookie campaign.

    High Ankle Sprains often take basketball players out for four to eight weeks. That's half the season in the NFL.

    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per NFL.com

    WHAT?! If Guice doesn't go down, why would they add a power back? It'd be guice, thompson, perine or kelley, bibbs or marshall. No AP.

    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per NFL.com

    Martez didn't affect the signing of AP. Guice affected the signing. Martez was never making this team. Literally a fight between Kelly, Perine, Thompson, Bibbs, Marshall for four roster spots. Now we add AP. That means either Kelly or Perine is gone and I just don't think it's Kelley. Jay has said they will carry a backup for Thompson on the roster.

    2018 Redskins Roster Prediction

    Montae is the Defense's Jordan Reed and has yet to show he can stay healthy. Apke doesn't look ready for serious playing time yet.

    2018 Redskins Roster Prediction

    Here's an update to mine From the OP, there's no way that Ziggy Hood doesn't make the team. Phil Taylor is out because Settle looks good. RB situation is in flux because of AP and Charles. Honestly starting to think they put Alexander on IR but not sure. I do not like our lack of safety depth if someone is injured. That's why I think we teach Alexander both Safety and CB and let him float/be a backup. They've raved about SDH and how smart he is. I think he makes the team. OP had him out.
