truskinsfan18 Posted November 2, 2005 Share Posted November 2, 2005 I keep hearing Brunell being critisized. Let me try to understand this from you guys...? IS offence about rythym? Yes it is. If you guys remember clearly, early in the game there were some drops. Brunell was looking fine out there, once escaping hte pocket to delivre a perfect throw between defenders to David Patten...which was dropped. No rythym could be developed. Now, the mark of a great offense is to be able to develop rythmym after a mistake or two, but all game it could not be done. Also, if you remember that our D was doing ok besides the big run early on( the big run only led to a field goal), but our O kept going 3 and out, leaving the momentum to the giants. All these factors contributed in a steady downhill battle for us, and it kept getting worse. If we convert some of those early first downs, and eastablish rythym, then the whole ball game would have beeen different, because onec we got behind our D wasn't tackling as well trying to strip the ball, and then it just looked ugly. But, back to the main point. Brunell didnt look bad to me, because if you rewatch the tape, NO ONE was getting open, and he was getting NO protectoin. He had NO time out there, oc umenyora or whatever was penetrating EVRY snap. your opinoins may differ, but I truly believe this loss can be put on the Oline and the D line, no one else( except maybe the coaches in gameplaning, but execution is also important because im sure the coaches didnt sit around all week) Our D line was getting crushed, and our Oline was also, causing tiki to get to the second level where he is dangerous. Dont blame our lb's, dont blame our secondary, because eli didnt have a big game. I truly believe we will seea differnt redskins team next week, and look forward to beating the eagles.
