  • Imminent pressure. The passer must face "imminent loss of yardage."[1] There is no violation when the passer is not about to be tackled but the receiver simply fails to run the route the quarterback expects.

Glad the refs know the rule book

From what I've heard Cooke is still a big Redskins fan so I doubt he's lol ing. 

 

Meh, unless you know him personally I will continue to believe he put a curse on this team when he got screwed out of owning it.  It helps explain the mess that is called the Redskins over the last 20 years.

Here’s the maddening thing about Cousins:  he makes 20 outstanding, next level plays in the game and puts you in position to win.

 

but when you need that ONE last play, he’s 50/50. 

 

Why, I don’t know.  It should never have come down to it.  But it did.  And the intentional grounding looked like a completely legitimate call to me.

 

It’s like the macro equivalent to being good from the 20’s but not good in the red zone.  Great until it really matters, then inconsistent.

I doubt the franchise will ever be successful with the current owner. 

 

Thats is pretty much it - the way it is run is not a recipe for any kind of success.

I said it after the Seattle game, this is a is a 5-11 to 6-10 team at best

 

Looking at our schedule, I'm going to say 7-9. We have a really easy schedule coming up. We should be favored in five of those 6 games, but we will find a way to frig up  two of those games.

What do the D linemen have to do with it? He turned immediately to the right and proceeded to throw it to absolutely nobody. Were there D linemen covering our WRs or something?

 

The answer to your question is in your comment but I don't feel like explaining it to you.

I probably agree, but I am really mad at the Redskins. They played a damn good game except when it counted and then became so bad that they lost it.

 

I'm furious with defense, still shouldn't have folded like that. But NFL is continue to lose viewership if they can't field ref crews that actually know the rules

We lose our most productive weapon, and the game in dramatic fashion. Well, at least the rest of our schedule is somewhat easy compared to the teams we've faced so far.

Sad our coaching didn't know it well enough to dispute it.

 

Can't challenge inside two minutes anyway.

Are you effing kidding me???  Wasn't the score 31-16 late in the 4th q???   This loss is on this trash ass defense. They are Ron Lynn bad right now. 

You can read what I think in detail in the Assessment thread if you want. And no, I am not kidding you. Kirk had a great game and then a terrible game. The terrible game killed us.

 

The Defense all deserve to drink arsenic for their effort over the last few minutes and overtime, but Kirk's gaffes cost us a game winning field goal account.

Tell me, exactly, what in the holy hell Dan Snyder had to do with today's collapse?

It really, and I mean really, takes a special kind of Loser to lose in the fashion we did. I mean, you have to really mentally collapse and give up. Boy oh boy. I know we're all used to this type of let down by the Skins but todays game is inexcusable. This is the type of game that will make me walk away for the rest of the season and come back just to check in to see if the team has mad major moves with the personnel. This isn't good for my health. I need to take a walk.

I’m sorry but screw this team, we need to blow it up, let Kirk walk, Fire all the coaches, bulldoze Fed Ex and just reboot this franchise....we have sucked for 20+ years oh a few winning seasons sprinkled in but as a franchise we are a laughing stock, our fans are laughing stocks. I was high on this team, but I think I was just HIGH! 

 

Screw them! At this point they could get to the Super Bowl and it would not be good enough for me. I will give them no more of my money, or my emotion as far as I am concerned the Redskins died when Snyder bought the team.

Act like a 3 year old, get treated like one.  Nobody cares if you are done with the team or not.  

Obviously you do. This is a classic case where telling somebody to shut the **** up is valid.

That's why you think we lost?  Has nothing to do with the last three Saints drives.  

 

My take, Kirk was the team's best player today (by a wide margin) and the one most responsible for the team being in position to win it.  I wouldn't even mention the offense when discussing why we lost today.  The defense imploded.  Again.

The defense implodes regularly; the coach's ineptitude routinely fails to compensate for the woes of the defense.

Hey guys, during the Saints TD drive in regulation, what defense were the Skins running? Or rather, how many down linemen were there (which could tell you the defense)?

 

I couldn't see because we were in the car (Madden view FTW) but I wonder what defense they were running. Ideally with a QB like Brees and 2 minutes you want to be in a Dime (4-1-6) or Nickel (4-2-5 if you have 2 good cover linebackers, Skins don't). They shouldn't have been in Quarters prevent (1-3-7). But I think they might have.
That could have been why they weren't getting any pass rush.

I wholeheartedly disagree with this part. He wasn't in imminent danger of taking a loss. And it wasn't INTENTIONAL.

Kirk played wonderfully almost the whole game. Had some beautiful passes, and the loss isn't on him. But that doesn't change that he made critical boneheaded plays at critical times.

This is the angriest I have been in a while with his team.  How does this continue to be a thing year after year?  With the Redskins the game is NEVER over.  NEVER. No matter how big the lead or how little time left.

You cannot continue to get outplayed in the last 2 minutes of every half and say it's not coaching. You just can't.

If a player cannot do the main thing that is required under the severest pressure then that is psychological. If you look at the likes of New Zealand at rugby, this is what makes them different level. You can coach them to do it but under pressure they just will not be able to do it. Noth8ng you can do except try and get a qb who works under that duress or hit on a WR/RB that can do it. 

 

Coaching can help it but at the end of the day, you see it generally across the league. The best players do the difficult stuff in the moments they need to.
