    Greg Manusky Why Isn't He Fired Yet?

    The moment I realized just how horrible Manusky is was in the Colts game last season. Indy kept going to the same well over and over and over again and we kept giving it to them. Was shocking to say the least. Whoever said he was a step up from Barry, I'm not sure I agree. Manusky has a lot more talent to work with; Barry had Ryan Kerrigan and a bunch of lousy FAs and Kendrick Golston. That d-line was just hideous, and the rest of the defense was almost as putrid.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    Gruden is only part of the issue. When your GMs have been essentially Vinny Cerrato and Bruce Allen, you are toast.

    Is it coaching or did Allen miss badly again. Are they asking him to play a style that doesn’t utilize his strengths? All I know is that defensive high draft picks and FAs come to this team and are mediocre at best. Collins is looking pretty bad, Allen and Payne have been “ok”, Norman has been mediocre. Many guys have not taken the next step like Kerrigan, Ioannidis, Payne, and Allen. Perhaps a combination of both. Guys who could be pieces in a really good defense when well coached but aren’t good enough to dominate on raw ability. I actually don’t think Gruden has been that bad on the offensive side of the ball give the garbage he’s had to work with. However his choices of Barry and Manusky, proven losers, as DC’s I think should be his downfall. If it was to “protect himself”, well for shame.

    Perhaps, then if they are limiting what he’s allowed to do, Manusky needs to be fired on the spot. Of course he needs to be fired on the spot for a lot of reasons.

    Every game is a series of adjustments. Manusky is notoriously hideous in this regard. Prepares the D for limited scenarios and cannot adjust successfully on the fly.

    Sweat is nothing more than a mediocre rotational lineman. I think we can safely assume that anyone Allen et al pick is the wrong choice.
  7. He did that on his very first carry. Did a lot of hop skips, which limited his ability to make a second cut. Maybe it was an a way I hope so versus he's just not that good a runner.

    The Future is Bright...

    Every team in the league has a Harmon or Guice, guys that the team talks up but who have done nothing. I was pretty unimpressed with Guice yesterday, but I'll give him a little slack given coming off the injury. He's not very shifty yet didn't break tackles either. We'll see I guess, but certainly not someone right now I can look at and say "bright future". I was pretty unimpressed with Sweat too. Looked for any flashes as a pass rusher, saw none. Didn't even look like a technique issue as much as lack of explosiveness, but perhaps tentativeness or trying to "stay in is lane" made him that way and there is more there.
  9. I don't think holding is an issue of discipline, but the false starts perhaps. But false starts can also be about getting an advantage on a d-lineman if you're getting beaten like a drum. I think there is an element of ill-preparedness on this team, no question. It's one reason why our defense struggles so much beyond first quarters; Manusky is very limited in preparing the team for various formations. Maybe he makes in-game adjustments, I don't know, but the team sure doesn't look comfortable with the adjustments. Like not a lot of reps or film room on them.
  10. I've learned over the years not to believe any defensive hype. This team has consistently failed with talent evaluation; say what you will about jerry Jones, but he and his staff pick the Lawrences, Vander Esch's, and Jones while we pick rotational players. if it's not inability to find diamonds, then it's coaching. My feeling is that you put a subpar d-coordinator with OK (at best) talent, and this is what you get. Was listening to Chris Russell after the game and he was yapping about "it's the execution, not just the coaching". Here's the thing. If the execution is problematic year after year after year, then it's one of two things. One, your drafting/player evaluation stinks. Or two, the coaching staff is not properly preparing guys to execute. Why do Patriots players always execute, even guys who are marginal talents? Because they are probably seeing everything in practice and doing the appropriate reps over and over. D-Jax being left alone over and over showed me the team was not prepared, they were seeing formations they didn't expect, etc. That falls on coaching,

    Besides McLaurin and Holcomb, which young player did you like?

    I’m with you. Manusky being fired could be a big addition by subtraction.

    Don’t know about you guys, but I’m concerned about what I saw from Sweat. I know it’s one game but guy looks like he has no burst. Not seeing the athleticism that was advertised.

    Manusky is incapable of learning within a game. Just an awful, awful defensive coordinator. Worse than Barry was.
