      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!

How this game isn't 35-0 I have no idea. 

 

Cause the eagles aren't that good, either.

No it was the 72 season. They played the in unbeaten Dolphins in that years Super Bowl.

Actually that was in 72 with the game in Jan of 73. You are correct.

Is that a TD or not? I have no idea anymore if that's a catch.

Not even close - made a football move by extending over goal line.  Should be a TD

why do you guys keep thinking a new QB fixes everything?  we have 0 playmakers on offense.  

 

A new QB fixes nothing.  A new coach fixes nothing.  A new GM is a START.  At best, this team sucks for another 2-3 seasons while it builds up.

Inability to pressure the QB.  He is just sitting back and tossing the ball around.

Exactly Mr. Allen and Mr. Payne are no where to be found...they have been part of this debacle being invisible.

People should be aware by now Alex Smith wasn't the issue.  Sure he wasn't as good as some of us hoped, but we have been through 3 QB's since his injury and none of the "playmakers" on offense haven't suddenly looked good.   They need better players, period.

We have a few. Richardson and Guice will be back next year. Thompson is still under contract next year.  We will need a TE though as I am sure Davis and Reed will both be cut during the off season.

It's beating a dead horse I know, but only one thing starts the fixing of this team.

The 1972 Miami Dolphins season was the team’s seventh season, and third season in the National Football League (NFL). The 1972 Dolphins are the only NFL team to win the Super Bowl with a perfect season. The undefeated campaign was led by coach Don Shula and notable players Bob Griese, Earl Morrall, and Larry Csonka. The 1972 Dolphins went 14–0 in the regular season and won all three post-season games, including Super Bowl VII against the Washington Redskins, to finish 17–0.

I will say that I disagree, defense has not quit.  Defense is just bad with a coordinator not able to adjust.  An offensive coordinator calling back to back same plays in the NFL and the defense unable to stop it twice in a row is the evidence.

Manusky might be the worst D-coordinator in the last decade of a bad bunch.  Either that or the personnel in the secondary are the worst in the NFL.  Every single pass whether it is 2 yards or 20 yards is completed with zero defenders around the ball carrier.  This isn't even NFL caliber football I am witnessing.
