Is this the most talented yet misused defensive front we've had in years?

This is just ridiculous 

 

Hey now, man (or woman, dont want to be sexist) is speaking from the heart here. I mean, I have faith in myself, my friends, my family, etc. Everything I need to get through the thought times in actual life. Everyone is different though.

 

For me, faith in the Washington Redskins is way down the list... Probably several spots below "Faith that the Walking Dead won't suck this year" (I will believe/faith that **** into existence. Slick Rick Grimes will whoop some ass one more time, and silence the haters)

 I didn’t say anything after the game. I was wait and see. 

 

But this is the 2nd straight week where the LBs sucked. The DL is fine but the guys behind them suck and to be honest, I’m not entirely surprised. The only good player in the bunch is Kerrigan

Keep waiting then.  It's one game.  And the thread isn't about us having the greatest defensive front in Redskins history.  It's about having the best front we've had in years.

 

Stop ****ing.

Yeah, he was not around at all the whole week after the dominating victory. Only now. Hmmm. How bout that!

Please.

 

Sucking? They're young.

 

We got one guy (Johnathan Allen) who is second year player, who missed two-thirds of his first season. Them we have DeRon Payne, who is a rookie.

 

Heck, Matt Ioannidis is just a third year player.

 

That is a pretty young, inexperienced, but exciting and intriguing d-line. They will play very well, but there will be days like this as they grow.

 

Folks were kidding themselves if they thought this line was going to be the steel curtain every week this early.

The Skins are like a family member to me.  I can hope my opioid addicted cousin will one day get his life together and stop being a leach to my aunt and all around worthless POS, while also observing his actions know that most likely won’t happen anytime soon.

I genuinely think Kerrigan has hit a wall.  Cant remember him ever being so irrelevant

 

Hes never been great or special. He was an above average pass rusher that feasted in RTs his whole career and padded stats when he’d get a bad or inexperienced RT. Most times tho he runs himself so far upfield he’s out of the play or he seems content to just stand there and dance with the linemen

Short answer, yes. 

 

Long answer - it will take some time before the results start to show. A lot of young players who will make mistakes through experience. I think the more they get to play, the better they’ll get, and by season’s end we’ll see a much better front than what we started with.

Dude has always been so inconsistent. He gets his sacks in bunches.  He’ll probably sack Rodgers thrice next Sunday.

Man, anybody blaming the D for this loss is dumb as hell.  Don’t even pay it any attention.

Our OLB's have to be the slowest in the entire league.... It's embarassing. I don't think P. Smith gets re-signed here and McPhee isn't doing it either. Do we have a sack yet?

I like Payne -- my main issue with the pick was skipping Derwin.  I saw Riddick say recently he's hesitant to compare anyone to Sean Taylor but Derwin is the closest he's seen since.  Still early, though.

 

It's super early, so we'll see how things go throughout the next 15 weeks. But right now, Derwin James, Fred Warner and Denzel Ward are my leaders in the clubhouse for DROY.

“I don’t think I’ve played poorly, but I think it is frustrating that the production hasn’t been there.” — #Redskins Pro Bowler Ryan Kerrigan, who has a tackle and no sacks through two games.

 

Saw a post from @zoony yesterday wondering about this, and I was going to say I legit don't recall him being involved in a single play yet, and with one tackle, I really wasn't far off.

 

Holy ****

Oh I think the defense played a role for sure.  They gave up 2 fairly easy scores early to put the team behind, then when they needed a stop late they allowed the Colts to march down the field, take up a bunch of time, and got the td that gave them an insurmountable 2 score lead.

My issue isn’t with the line. I think our ILBs suck at defending the run. Zach Brown is fast so ppl assume he’s good. 

Foster is a JAG. 

 

Zach Brown was fantastic last year, many of us thought that was a crucial re-sign.  I have no idea what has happened to him this year, Foster played pretty well yesterday.  Smith and Kerrigan are kind of killing them and the Bama Boys have not had the expected impact to date.
