      Landover, MD - Welcome all to the Extremeskins coverage of the second preseason game. I'm TSO in the Press box providing you with the best damn coverage I and Spaceman Spiff, who will be providing coverage from the sidelines, possibly can! 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      1999 Redskins go 10-6 and win the NFC East. The following season? Failure. 
       
       
       
      2005 Redskins go 10-6 and nab a wildcard spot. The following season? Disaster.
       
       
       
      2007 Redskins go 9-7 and sneak into the playoffs. The following season? Zorn. 
       
       
       
      2012 Redskins go 10-6, win the NFC East with their shiny new franchise QB. The following season? Epic collapse. 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      So now, here we are. The Redskins are coming off a season that saw a seismic shift occur within the Front Office, where a legitimate talent-evaluating GM was hired to take control of the scouting department and personnel. Gruden got the help he desperately needed and asked for from the Front Office. The Redskins went 9-7 and miraculously won the NFC East on the heels of a young group of draft picks and a ton of personnel hits in general.
       
       
       
      So, the following season? 
       
       
       
      We're going to find out if this is real. 
       
       
       
      Is it? Is our newly and properly structured Front Office as organized and professional as it seems? Is it real?
       
       
       
      Is our energetic and smart coaching staff as good for player development as they were last season? Is it real?
       
       
       
      Is Kirk Cousins the franchise QB we've been so desperately lacking? Is he for real?
       
       
       
      Are the young players truly developing into a core of consistent championship potential?  Are they for real?
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      It might just be the preseason, but these games play a role (albeit a small one) in teaching us who will rise to the occasion and who won't. Who will solidify their spot on the team and who will continue to remain a question. Who will be a part of the new reality we all hope is happening right before our eyes, a hope we continue to question is real?
       
       
       
      The hope that we're witnessing the rise of the Redskins as a perennial contender. 
       
       
       
      Let's start to find out together here on Extremeskins Gameday Coverage!  
       
       
       
       
       
       
         
       
       
       1st Quarter Analysis  
       
       
         
       
       
       
       
       
         
       
       
      Offensively, I think we finally saw the new Matt Jones (7 carries for 31 yards, 4.4 avg) we've heard about all offseason. Though the handoff gaffe was terrible, everything else was very pleasing to see. He had good vision, ran hard, and got whatever he could get on plays that the defense played well. Unfortunately, he got hurt and so his durability issues will, and should, come into question. Let's hope his left shoulder is okay.   
       
       
         
       
       
      Ryan Grant (3 for 3, 27 yards) and Jamison Crowder (3 of 4, 38 yards) also showed up well (well, on offense, Crowder's muffed punt was terrible to see but let's not forget this is his first live action of the year), but you really see why coaches love Grant. He's just very smooth and tough to cover.  
       
       
         
       
       
      Colt McCoy (7 of 9, 66 yards) looked great until the last play of the first drive, which was mind numbingly stupid. I actually think he was trying to throw it away. And that spin? Whoosh. That was fun to see.  
       
       
         
       
       
      As for the defense, the secondary keeps showing up. DHall was in on the first pass break up and Greg Toler had great coverage on the 3rd down.         
       
       
         
       
       
      I've noticed the last two games we've essentially never lined up in a 3-4. We basically have two Dlinemen inside (Reyes, Baker) and 2 OLB (Kerrigan, Preston).   
       
       
         
       
       
      The Oline looks totally different with Lauvao in terms of run-blocking. That is all.   
       
       
         
       
       
      Stay tuned for more after the half!     
       
       
         
       
       
       2nd Quarter Analysis  
       
       
         
       
       
       
       
       
         
       
       
      Dunbar was a busy bee. He gave up a bad pass against Decker on the first drive for Jets O in the 2nd. On their second drive, Dunbar makes up for it with a beautiful pass breakup. Their third drive, Dunbar gives up a 9 yard completion, but had tight coverage. Mixed bag, but certainly improved from last week's performance.   
       
       
         
       
       
      Reyes and Baker were struggling a bit on interior runs initially. 2nd drive for Jets O, Baker made a nice tackle on an interior run, so that was good. Baker also had with nice pressure causing incomplete pass on 3rd down.   
       
       
         
       
       
      Spaight has been extremely impressive to say the least. It's not just the caused fumble, he's the general of D. I've been watching him between breaks as well and he's constantly communicating with everyone, controlling the huddle. Doesn't look like a 2nd year player coming off of injury. He had a sick read on screen and tackle as well later on in the 2nd.  
       
       
         
       
       
      Jamison Crowder running more north-south on punts it seems.  
       
       
         
       
       
      Ross with a step, Colt throws deeper could've been big play on drive early in 2nd. Rashad Ross two nice plays on first TD drive. Super impressive 2nd TD from Rashad Ross, tackled head first but maintains possession, not easy for a small guy like him.    
       
       
         
       
       
      Safety on Spencer Long, hands seemed more on the shoulders lifting up the jersey right under the chin so it looked bad, nice play to Maurice Harris got nullified, a shame for a young guy like him. But Harris comes back and gets a 19 yard gain on a nice catch off play action.    
       
       
         
       
       
      Ihenacho on ensuing kickoff with nice tackle. Continues to show up on Special Teams.      
       
       
         
       
       
      Another Ryan Grant catch.    
       
       
         
       
       
      Golston veteran move on run with about 3:25 left in 2nd, just goes down to cause pile up and trips RB.   
       
       
         
       
       
      Blackmon savvy INT from Safety, don't know what Geno Smith was thinking, but Trail was close to applying pressure... could be Geno felt it.  
       
       
         
       
       
      Dashaun Phillips and Spaight nice zone trade off on drive late in 2nd quarter.  
       
       
         
       
       
      All in all, a very positive quarter for a lot of Redskins. Spaight (1 FF), Rashad Ross (4 on 5, 58 yards, 2 TD) and Colt McCoy (13 of 16, 159 yards, 2 TD) killed it.    
       
       
         
       
       
      Stay tuned for more!       
       
       
         
       
       
         
       
       
        3rd Quarter Analysis  
       
       
         
       
       
       
       
       
         
       
       
      Not a whole lot to see here, but I was excited about Stephen Paea coming on back to back plays to start the 3rd quarter off. He got good penetration on run and then a sack on the next play.  Then, Paea on the ensuing drive again penetrates nicely on back to back plays with solid rushes. He's a player I was hoping would improve from last game and I discussed that in length here:    
       
       
         
       
       
      Speaking of players I noticed, Anthony Lanier seems to have moved up on the depth chart as he was often playing with 2nd team in the 3rd quarter if my eyes didn't deceive me. 
      Reiter continues to impress. On run play where Marshall went for about 9 yards with slightly under 3 minutes left in the 3rd, he gets his first block accomplished and then passes him off and lands his second block, opening up a nice lane up.    
       
      Stay tuned for the 4th Quarter update!    
       
       4th Quarter Analysis
       
      Again, not much to discuss other than the obvious (Sudfeld with an awesome drive to win the game)... but here are a couple things I thought were interesting. 
      Fuller gives up long pass play to start the 4th but then recovers with three nice plays. He breaks up two passes and then makes the tackle on a 3rd and 2 to stop the Jets drive and force a FG.  
      Garvin continues to make plays, with a nice pass break up and then a pressure that resulted in an errant throw to force a Jets punt. Recovers fumble caused by Deshazor Everett on Jets drive that was moving easily by hustling.  As mentioned in my previous blog, he's been impressive. 
      Anthony Lanier with the sack to finish the game, love that guy!  
       
      Final impressions:
      So today's game clearly didn't go a long way in determining if this Redskins' resurgence is for real (or as much as any preseason game possibly could), considering many of the players who will play a massive role in said resurgence didn't play, but we did get to see who might potentially add their hats to the discussion. 
      And who are those guys?
      Aside from the obvious answers in Rashad Ross, Ryan Grant, Colt McCoy, Matt Jones and Martrell Spaight who absolutely killed it, there were guys like Anthony Lanier (check out the exclusive interview) who seemed to play a bigger role today on the Dline after showing up really well last week.
      Stephen Paea improved significantly upon his performance last week as well, often finding his way in the backfield of the opposition. Other players who improved from last week were Keith Marshall, Will Blackmon, and Morgan Moses. 
      Reiter continued to impress as did Maurice Harris who continues to be used with the second stringers, making him an interesting roster decision to follow considering how much depth there is at his position. 
      Unfortunately, there are some guys who continue to be questions moving forward and are nowhere near a "yes" on the "is it real" scale. Kuandjio continues to be a mixed bag who has a tough time finding any consistency as does Quinton Dunbar, though he had a lot more positive happen than last week. Fuller had himself a mixed bag of a game as well, but his rookie status makes it much more forgiving. 
      So as we move forward and into the third preseason game where we're expected to get a much closer glimpse of the team's "is it real" factor, let's hope to see continued improvement from the players we need to play significant roles in this resurgence... that is, if it's real this time.

NFL.com - Power Rankings

Yikes! I know these so called "power rankings" do not mean squat but 32? Seriously?

packers_logo.jpg

1. Green Bay Packers

Innocent until proven guilty. Overcoming 12 major contributors on IR to go on to win the Super Bowl is impressive enough. The only major defection was DE Cullen Jenkins, who didn't play half the season anyway. His absence is far exceeded by the return of Ryan Grant and Jermichael Finley. Why is everyone so sure Donald Driver is done? I'd still take him over Jordy Nelson.

patriots_logo.jpg

2. New England Patriots

As if 14-2 wasn't good enough, the addition of a potentially not quite as fat and lazy Albert Haynesworth as well as a happy Chad Ochocinco and a re-upped Matt Light make this team formidable, per the norm. Stephen Neal's retirement hurt, as did Tully Banta-Cain's departure, especially considering the pass rush is not one of this team's strengths.

jets_logo.jpg

3. New York Jets

The only big-name veteran not linked to the Jets this offseason was Brett Favre. Plaxico Burress fills Braylon Edwards' role in an offense that will probably be dominated by Shonn Greene and Dustin Keller.

eagles_logo.jpg

4. Philadelphia Eagles

This team might be calling itself the Heat, but let's hope the Eagles' Superman makes a better run in the fourth quarter than Miami's Superman. While Michael Vick should be solid again, don't expect another 100-plus passer rating. The key for this team will be the play of its weak links: Offensive line (as usual), and the Stewart Bradley-less LB corps.

saints_logo.jpg

5. New Orleans Saints

The Saints score more than David Duchovny, and that's not going to change with the addition of Mark Ingram and emergence of Jimmy Graham. The key is the defense, which ranked fourth overall a year ago, but got knifed in the playoffs and is without Anthony Hargrove, Remi Ayodele, and Darren Sharper.

steelers_logo.jpg

6. Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh made a Steelers-esque splash in free agency, re-signing Ike Taylor and Willie Colon. Yay. That's okay, the formula to success remains unchanged: Draft and retain. I got $10 that says first-round pick Cameron Heyward fits in and contributes down the stretch. Here's hoping Aaron Smith does as well. Triceps tears and being 35 are a tough mix.

colts_logo.jpg

7. Indianapolis Colts

The Colts deserve this spot. If one team could stay above the fray of lockout disunity and disorganization, it would have to be these guys. Indy has a system, starting with where it just essentially guaranteed $90 million to Peyton Manning. Now if recently re-signed Joseph Addai produces this season, the ranking goes higher. If not, the aging defense might suffer from too much time on the field.

falcons_logo.jpg

8. Atlanta Falcons

I'm not drinking the Falcons' Kool-Aid just yet, although their 13-3 finish warrants them being in the top 10. Atlanta lost guard Harvey Dahl in free agency, Michael Turner has trouble staying 100 percent, and Julio Jones has done nothing yet. If John Abraham starts playing his age (33), 13-3 and making the playoffs could be 9-7 and gone fishing.

giants_logo.jpg

9. New York Giants

The G-Men are one club that hasn't gotten any respect. The Matt Dodge punt, Eli Manning's turnovers, Brandon Jacob's contract, Osi Umenyiora's everything. Yet, Tom Couglin's bunch still won 10 games a year ago, and should handle the work stoppage better than other clubs. The revamped offensive line is a question mark ... the question mark.

ravens_logo.jpg

10. Baltimore Ravens

How do you figure Baltimore? Who's going to play opposite a slowing Anquan Boldin? How much does this team miss Todd Heap? Does Joe Flacco look like Norman Bates? This team needed more than Bernard Pollard this offseason, but if it gets these questions answered, Baltimore could rocket up the rankings in short order.

chiefs_logo.jpg

11. Kansas City Chiefs

Todd Haley is the NFL's version of Rangers manager Ron Washington. No two head honchos in sports resemble a homeless guy better than Haley and Washington. Still, Haley has done a nice job working in conjunction with Scott Pioli to carve this team both in his image and that of the Patriots. Don't look for the Chiefs to fall flat, although ...

chargers_logo.jpg

12. San Diego Chargers

…it would be easy to swap these two. This has to be make-or-break time for one Norval Turner. There's still a lot of talent on this team. Re-signing Eric Weddle was huge. But somebody has to help Philip Rivers out this season besides Patrick Crayton. As in someone better than Crayton. Here's looking at you, Ryan Mathews.

buccaneers_logo.jpg

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

No Bucs fan can be entirely happy about Barrett Ruud's departure. I'm pretty sure they took it worse than Sabby Piscitelli's exit last year. It will be interesting to see how Raheem Morris' young team responds after the lack of structure during the lockout. Tampa was the best team not to make the playoffs. Much rides on the development of those baby defensive linemen.

cowboys_logo.jpg

14. Dallas Cowboys

It's tough putting Jerry's boys even this high. But truth is, Dallas went 5-3 down the stretch, and the three losses were by a total of seven points. They probably should have gone 7-1. The defections of Roy Williams, Marion Barber, Leonard Davis, and Marc Colombo might end up being addition by subtraction. Meanwhile, new acquisition Abram Elam should be an upgrade over Alan Ball at safety.

lions_logo.jpg

15. Detroit Lions

Lions fans officially can't blame Matt Millen if this team goes 6-10. It's been three years A.M., and Detroit has as much talent as anyone. Risky move giving Nick Fairley a guaranteed contract, considering his reputation. But if he's even 80 percent of Ndamukong Suh, and Matthew Stafford can start, oh, I don't know, 12 games, look out.

bears_logo.jpg

16. Chicago Bears

For all of the former underachieving Cowboys taking up roster real estate and cap space, was it really worth letting Olin Kreutz go over $500,000? Aside from the Dallas castoffs, the Bears are relying on a number of former top 10 picks with other teams to suddenly shake their bust label in Chicago.

rams_logo.jpg

17. St. Louis Rams

Sam Bradford is happy. Steven Jackson is happy. Everyone loves Josh McDaniels except for Tony Sheffler and Brandon Marshall. Speaking of receivers, is Danny Amendola going to catch 148 five-yard ins or will this offense get the ball vertically to big names, like, uh, Danario Alexander and Brandon Gibson? Maybe Mike Sims-Walker makes a difference.

raiders_logo.jpg

18. Oakland Raiders

Going undefeated in the division was pretty damn impressive. It's the 2-8 against everyone else that's not. Losing Nnamdi Asomugha and Zach Miller hurt, too. Coach Hue Jackson could make up the difference. The reality is that by the end of last season, this was one of the better teams in the NFL.

seahawks_logo.jpg

19. Seattle Seahawks

While T-Jax might surprise all of us besides Sidney Rice, Seattle needs more than these two players to show up to improve on last year's 7-9 record. Getting Brandon Mebane back in the middle of that defense was big as was adding Zach Miller. Looming larger is how much of a factor Marshawn Lynch decides to be.

texans_logo.jpg

20. Houston Texans

Chalk landing here up to another team hurt by the lockout. Wade Phillips needs more time to get all his players used to their new assignments. First-round pick J.J. Watt could make a huge difference as a 3-4 defensive end. Either way, the back four has to get better. Will Johnathan Joseph and Danieal Manning turn the secondary around?

jaguars_logo.jpg

21. Jacksonville Jaguars

It took us 21 teams to get to a legit quarterback competition. Does it seem like David Garrard is the only five-year starter in the NFL who's no more famous or revered than the local JUCO QB? It will be interesting to see how 10th overall pick Blaine Gabbert fares. Yet, signing Paul Posluszny to a six-year, $42 million dollar contract makes this ranking seem generous.

vikings_logo.jpg

22. Minnesota Vikings

Shockingly, Donovan McNabb still gets mentioned publicly as much as gubernatorial housekeepers. Why? His footwork stunk last season, he was wildly inconsistent, and he was benched for Rex Grossman of all people. Why not just let Christian Ponder play? There are so many good, proud veterans on this team that 22 seems harsh, but there it sits.

49ers_logo.jpg

23. San Francisco 49ers

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier has an advantage Jim Harbaugh does not. He knew his guys prior to the lockout. The work stoppage had to impact this group, what with a brand new staff and new offense. Michael Crabtree is hurt, Manny Lawson, Nate Clements and Aubrayo Franklin are gone. But at least Tarvaris Jackson wasn't named the starter, right?

titans_logo.jpg

24. Tennessee Titans

Which Matt Hasselbeck shows up in 2011? The guy who deep-sixed the league's fourth-ranked defense in the playoffs, or the oft-injured, inconsistent player of the last three years? Whatever the case might be, his presence should be good for eighth overall pick Jake Locker, especially with a new staff in place.

dolphins_logo.jpg

25. Miami Dolphins

Before Tony Sparano goes all Tony Sparano on us, and spearheads a team that features Daniel Thomas and a 1-yard cloud of dust, let's see if Chad Henne's hurt feelings give him the eye of the tiger. Defensively, Jared Odrick and Koa Misi could make a young unit formidable. Still, throw the ball downfield occasionally, please.

cardinals_logo.jpg

26. Arizona Cardinals

Putting fresh face Kevin Kolb to the side, who is his ace-in-the-hole? Everyone desperately wants it to be Beanie Wells. Particularly fantasy editor Michael Fabiano. Arizona must run the ball effectively. It will do Kolb some good, give Fabs something to facebook blast, and give the struggling defense a rest.

bills_logo.jpg

27. Buffalo Bills

The offensive line still stinks. That's the prime directive with this club, getting better line play. Let's hope it improves, because Ryan Fitzpatrick is more than serviceable. Signing do-it-all Brad Smith was nice, but involving C.J. Spiller in the offense is 10 times more important.

bengals_logo.jpg

28. Cincinnati Bengals

Watching Andy Dalton work with Steve Mariucci during NFL Network's draft coverage was good TV. It's hard not to like the redhead. He should start. There's sure to be a last-second eBay bid on Carson Palmer, but no way Mike Brown budges on this one. Losing Johnathan Joseph hurt, hurt, hurt. Nate Clements is a rich man, but a poor man's Joseph (or Leon Hall.)

browns_logo.jpg

29. Cleveland Browns

I have no idea where to put these guys. How good is Colt McCoy? Was Peyton Hillis' big year a fluke? How much will the lockout hurt rookie coach Pat Shurmur and his staff's plan? These are all big, big questions that leave the Brownies here.

broncos_logo.jpg

30. Denver Broncos

I think the Johns will get this thing turned around. But with the lockout delaying the transition to a new coaching staff, an uncertain quarterback situation and a defense transferring from a 3-4 to a 4-3, it's difficult to move the Broncos up. If Tim Tebow ends up starting (although it's Kyle Orton for now), Denver might reside around these parts for some time.

panthers_logo.jpg

31. Carolina Panthers

How much can 2010's worst club improve in one season with a rookie coach (Ron Rivera) and quarterback (Cam Newton.) Mike Munchak is going through the same deal in Tennessee, but Rivera has no Matt Hasselbeck to turn to. Re-signing DeAngelo Williams was huge.

redskins_logo.jpg

32. Washington Redskins

John Beck was the first player to drive up to Redskins headquarters immediately after the lockout ended, but was turned away. Some reports said that's just how the front desk staff felt about him starting.

Not that I really care, but this is just hating to hate. I can see us in the bottom 5, but there are at least 4 teams that suck worse than us. And I wish they would all update their stories. Beck will NOT be starting Sept. 11. Cincy, Carolina, Buffalo and Denver could all be worse than us. I'll thrown in Cleveland and Arizona for good measure.

Were we ever ranked this low? Even with Marty or even Zorn?

DR.Z Power Rankings 2001 Week Six

31Washington Redskins (0-5)

They played so hard against the Giants that they fooled me. What a blah effort Monday night. What a poor excuse for quarterbacking. What a mess.

Six Weeks later:

14 Washington Redskins (5-5)

Logically speaking, they're even money or better to make the playoffs. Just check the rest of the schedule and see if there are any killers there.

DR.Z Power Rankings 2001 Week Six

31Washington Redskins (0-5)

They played so hard against the Giants that they fooled me. What a blah effort Monday night. What a poor excuse for quarterbacking. What a mess.

Six Weeks later:

14 Washington Redskins (5-5)

Logically speaking, they're even money or better to make the playoffs. Just check the rest of the schedule and see if there are any killers there.

Even when we were 0-5 back in 01 with Marty did we rank so low... thanks MLSKINS.

1. this is a fair ranking. the team, from the outside, looks like it is in disarray.

2. who cares. all we can do is beat expectations.

While I do not agree that we are the worst team in the NFL, we are pretty close.

For all those people who keep saying, how do we go from 10th worst to worst when we improved.....Don't you think every team at this point feels they improved from the previous year?

Well that's dumb, since when does improving your team lead to a going from 10th overall to 1st overall pick. Btw Rex outplayed mcnabb last year too. That haters gon' hate, sexy rexy will show em this season

He isnt even the starting QB right now - what is he gonna "show em"? How to hold a clip board better than the next guy?

It's tough putting Jerry's boys even this high. But truth is, Dallas went 5-3 down the stretch, and the three losses were by a total of seven points. They probably should have gone 7-1. The defections of Roy Williams, Marion Barber, Leonard Davis, and Marc Colombo might end up being addition by subtraction. Meanwhile, new acquisition Abram Elam should be an upgrade over Alan Ball at safety.

This is a perfect example of what I'm talking about in the media thread.

Both Dallas and Washington finish 6-10 last year.

The Skins take Dallas down to the wire in the 2nd game of last season, and lose by field goal.

The off-season arrives. Dallas just cuts players, and basically adds nobody to improve their team.

Dallas has a head coach who has never even head coached a full season before, and a brand new defensive coordinator in Rob Ryan.

The rankings point out that they lost x amount of games by x small margin....yet they are STILL good enough to improve to #14.

on the other hand.

Washington cuts old-regime players, and does nothing but add talented players on both sides of the ball that fit the defensive and offensive schemes being implemented.

They are head coached by a man with THREE Super Bowl rings.

This is their 2nd year in the system on both sides of the ball.

They also lost several games by very little in 2010, actually they did better than Dallas in this regard. (This is conveniently forgotten)

They trade away Haynesworth and McNabb who nobody thought they would be able to do anything but cut outright.

and they are ranked 32, and the best that can be said about the team is this

John Beck was the first player to drive up to Redskins headquarters immediately after the lockout ended, but was turned away. Some reports said that's just how the front desk staff felt about him starting.

I mean seriously, what else is there to be said? The evidence speaks for itself.
