      The Redskins have opened their 2019 season with two losses. Both against Divisional foes. Now they get to close out Week 3 at home on Monday Night against the visiting 1-1 Chicago Bears. The Bears don't have much of an offense but seem to have what may be an elite defense.
       
      On the flip side, the Redskins have a developing passing attack and a disastrous defense. The Redskins haven't had a Defense this vanilla since Mike Nolan received his ice cream. Oh, and the Redskins already have more guys on IR then any other team this season. 
       
      Will the Redskins finally put one in the win column? 
       
      As usual, poll closes at kickoff. Go vote!

Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

Recommended Posts

Saints Run defense doesn’t look so bad but that could be because they score so much it forces teams into throwing it and their secondary isn’t so hot.

 

Ideally the Skins want to run the ball, keep Brees off the field, and bend but don’t break in the red zone.  The Skins will not even come close to winning a shootout.  It’s the only formula for success.

They have one stud in the secondary in Lattimore, who shut down OBJ. But I think we match up well with them because we're more of a spread it out team. Their run D only looks good because the Bucs and Falcons passed the ball at will on them. We have to come out aggressive and do the same. I think this is the game we see Thompson go off more than Peterson, and the TEs as well.

The WRs are going to have to contribute.  If they don't force the Saints to at least respect the outside receivers, they're going to just clog the middle and dare Alex to throw outside.  Crowder and Reed are best in the middle, as is the running game.

 

If they can get some passes outside early, that forces the defense to respect more of the field, which will open up things for the running game and inside routes which Reed and Crowder do so well. 

 

I don't care if it's Mo Harris (assuming he's back), or Doctson, or Richardson, or whoever, but SOMEBODY on the outside is going to have to make some plays. 

 

In addition to running the ball well and getting the ball to CT, Reed and Crowder.

Five years in and not ready for prime time. Sure, the refs cheated big time in the first half, but the Redskins also sucked and were completely outcoached and out- gameplanned

 

I really did expect us to lose, but does it have to be that humiliating?

Team is soft, undisciplined, unprepared, and lacks intensity... still. At this point, we’ve seen what Gruden is, and itÂ’s not enough to get it done.

Well, another lackluster effort coming out of a bye week!  Coaching and coaching has continued to fail us time and time again.

Skins need a different direction....

 

 

big big Skins fan and very disappointed

I see nothing from Jay Gruden to justify his continued employment.  Doesn't mean the next guy will be even better. Doesn't mean the real issue isn't the front office & ownership, but that still doesn't change how awful Jay Gruden seems to have this team prepared on a routine basis.

In the words of the great Julius Campbell from remember the Titans “attitude reflect leadership captain”. 

 

not only do the Redskins not have the talent to beat some of the better teams in the NFL they don’t have the coach. This team will never win with the no urgency having, “aw shucks” coach like Gruden. So tired of seeing him look lost on the sidelines. This team gave up at halftime.

How the F are we always so bad after a freaking bye week? Other coaches feast on that week, it seems to curse Jay Gruden like Ricketts and pop-up ads.

Did anyone hear Gruden's presser?  Once again he did the "I take the blame, I didn't have the team ready" routines.  My gawd.  How many more times do I need to hear this.

At some point shouldn't openly admitting over and over again to not doing or being able to do your job put that job on the line?

This team in 9-15 after a win under Gruden.   

And theyÂ’ve gone 9 games in a row without a 3rd quarter TD

 

BUT THE INJURIES!!!!!

 

At some point you have to call a spade a spade.

 

i said before that I would judge the 4 games (Saints, Carolina, Dallas, Giants) as a group.  I said I’d be ok with a tough fought loss to the saints.  It’s a tough place to play.

 

Well, we got a Gruden Dud.  

 

But the question is, can they go 3-1 over these 4 games.  I said that this morning.  

 

Carolina isnÂ’t great, they should beat Dallas at home and NYG on the road.

 

If they go 3-1, and get to 5-3, that would be a good mid-way record.

 

i doubt they get to 5-3.  Most likely 4-4. Why?  Because that’s Gruden.

After a bye week. AFTER A BYE WEEK. How in the blue **** do you not have the team ready AFTER a bye week??? **** yourself Gruden. Until you can prove you can get on a long winning streak. **** right off.

Interestingly, we won the games after the bye last 2 seasons.

Woukdnt 3-1 in that group of 4 games (@ saints, Vs Panthers, Vs Cowboys, @ Giants) be 5-2?

His demeanor reminds me of the Eli Manning's pics in that thread here on ES.  He always looks and sounds like he just smelled a fart. Never any substance.
