      In today's Divisional Debacle, the Defense under Greg Manusky in the first half, gave up 207 yards of offense (105 rushing/102 passing) and two touchdowns.  That said, they did manage a single INT on which the Offense actually managed to score a touchdown off of. They allowed 12 of 16 passes to be completed . 
       
      In the second half it was 107 yards given up (58 rushing//49 passing) a field goal and a touchdown. They traded their first half pick for a second half sack. However, Dallas completed all five of their pass attempts. 
       
      Don't read that thinking "Well it seems like they tightened up some in the 2nd half."  They didn't. They simply had about half the plays in the second half. 30 plays in the First and 18 in the Second.
       
      So far in two Divisional matchups, the Defense has faltered in the Second half. They start out like a house of fire for the first few drives until their opponents gradually make adjustments. This Defensive coaching staff fails make any adjustments, whether in game or at the very least at Halftime. They've given up over 30 points per game for a total of 63 points given up in two games. While the Bears are up next, the Pats await and they've put up over 70 points in two games. Yeah. Ok. They did shut out the Dolphins today which is looking like the NFL version of ... ahem... shooting fish in a barrel. 
       
      The frustrating thing is Manusky is the DC that the Front Office actively looked to replace during the off season without firing him. When you know they're looking to replace you, most people would make a concentrated effort to show an improvement. Yet Manusky's Defense still keeps acting like it's starring in Groundhog Day.
       
      In his post game presser, when asked directly about if any coaching changes would be made, Gruden said "No, I think after two games – you’re talking about playing two very good offensive football teams and two of the best offensive lines in pro football we just played back-to-back. That’s no excuse whatsoever, but I don’t think we need to hit the panic button yet. We just have to continue to focus on what we can do better to win. Get Jonathan [Allen] in here, get a couple of our corners back in here and let’s go back and strap it up against Chicago [Bears] next week and see what happens.” 
       
      Here's another frustrating thing. The defensive communication was an issue last season as well. Wasn't this supposed to have been worked on during OTA's and Training Camp? It's understandable that the rookies would still be on a learning curve, but NFL vets like Collins and DRC you'd think they would have down by the start of the season. 
       
      Gruden said they're a very talented group on Defense but that they weren't reaching them. When questioned as to why the coaching staff that has been in place for several years, wasn't reaching them, he defended the comment as them being a young defense. “We have some moving parts now. Landon Collins is a veteran guy but this is his first year, [Montez] Sweat’s in his first year, [Cole] Holcomb, it’s his first year, [Jon] Bostic is in his first year. We’re playing Dominique [Rodgers-Cromartie] at corner and this is Jimmy Moreland’s first year, so it’s not like we are the most experienced group. We feel like were very talented, but we`re still fighting through somethings. There are a lot of things to look forward to, without a doubt, but we do have to play better and strap it up and get back to work."

Brett Rypien. Opinions?

Recommended Posts

Outside of being Mark's nephew, anyone have opinions on him? Anyone watched him play? Strengths, weaknesses, etc.

He's a decent QB, but likely going to be a later round pick (rounds 5-7) that 98% of the time amounts to nothing more than a NFL back-up at best. He seems to be a fine enough developmental pick, but I wouldn't expect anything more

As a Boise area native who’s watched nearly all his college games....

decent arm but has a lot of Rex Grossman moments. Needs to develop better “touch”

 

On the plus side, he stayed pretty healthy at Boise St

 

Sure, take a chance if he’s available in 3rd or lower.

If he ends up with the Redskins they'll put an end to that.

I commented on him earlier today on the draft thread.

 

My impression is he is accurate and smart but he's not special at anything. He doesn't have a strong arm, isn't great at dodging pressure, not that mobile, nothing special as to throwing on the move.

 

His build reminds me of Colt McCoy where I worry about his durability if he takes a big hit.

 

Having said that, I would rather take a chance on him in the third even if he ends up a backup type than forcing something in the first round.

 

I like Grier in the 2nd though if he falls there easily over Rypien in the third round range.

 The Redskins do not have a good history with choosing relatives of former NFL players.

 

 But it would totally be an Allen move after he convinces Dan that he is just as good as Mark , and Mark wasn't even that good. He had a 2 year stint where he excelled but dropped off soon afterwards. It was a nice 2 years though.

That was kind of Rypien (mark) tbh. Rypien really got his **** together for one season, obviously the SuperBowl run. But even through some struggles and rough games in 89,90,92,93 He was still the best QB post 89 to put on the Burgundy and Gold until Kirk Cousins came along.

 

As far as the son goes, Hell yeah. He's a talent and I'd love to see Rypien sprawled across a quarterbacks jersey behind center for the skins for the nostalgia alone. We are probably going to suck again next season, so what the hell.

Glad we didn't choose CJ Beathard tho

Not sure if this is sarcasm or not but CJ beathard has more potential & could outperform any QB on our roster including a healthy Alex Smith

I'd be interested if he falls to the 3rd-4th round, mostly because I just don't want the Redskins to chase a QB in the 1st round this year. I would rather use this draft to bolster the other areas of need (safety, WR, Guard, Edge rusher, etc.), ride with either Colt or some cheap FA QB and probably suck in 2019 as a result, then draft the QB of the future in 2020 with a higher draft pick.

 

I dunno. I'll admit, I'm having a tough time caring anymore though. I just can't even with this organization anymore. Dan Snyder is the polar opposite of King Midas. Anything he touches turns to crap. If in an alternate universe, the Redskins had Mahomes, I'm pretty certain he would suck.

Imagine the marketing?  Next year, Todd Bowles the HC. Maybe Russ Grimm as the OC.  Doug elevated to some new title.   Rypien the QB.

Boise St is my second favorite team.  Have seen a lot of their games. He is a 3rd string QB in the NFL. Maybe a second stringer with a lot of time and development.

Mid rounder maybe. I suppose I might take a flyer on him if he falls to the late rounds. After watching him I mostly agree with @Skinsinparadise...he is decent at most things but doesn't really stand out at anything. Good mechanics, seems to go through reads pretty well, some mobility, pretty good accuracy overall though his deep touch/accuracy is a bit questionable as I saw a him get bailed out a number of times after underthrows or throwing into double coverage. He feels like an NFL backup to me. Got some gunslinger in him but doesn't necessarily have the arm for it...as others have said, a bit of Rex in him.

Dare I think Angela Rypien would sell more seats than Brett, Colt and Alex, combined.

 

Edit: Yeah what Riggo said.

I'm fine with that, We know the product on the field is going to blow & or half our team will go down with injury before week 7 , at least give me some nostalgia during the offseason, At this points its all this fan base has left.

Do you consider the year before or after the Super Bowl the other year?  Cause he did get the team to the second round in bot years.

The Redskins will find a way to botch this.  Some other team with a good scouting department and GM will identify a QB and draft him and likely with 1-3 picks prior to the Redskins in either the 2nd or 3rd round.  Sorry, but I just do not have any confidence in this team.  Will they draft Rypien? Probably, but only due to his name and ties to the organization.  Will he be available in the 3rd? Absolutely.  I'm guessing 6-7 rd pick for some team.

And is less injury-prone.

 

Seriously, while drafting Brett Rypien is dumb from a football perspective, it's not a bad way to get butts in seats.  I'd much rather we waste a 5th round pick on him than doing another Alex Smith contract or RG3 trade.
