      The Bill Callahan era began here at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. For the first quarter it was really,really bad football being played by both teams. 
      The Redskins were determined to establish the Run game. The First Quarter all they established was that they still couldn’t run. Or pass. Or do much of anything. 
       
      It wasn’t until the 2nd Quarter that Peterson was able to start ripping the worst Run D in the League for chunks of 18 & 24 yards. The Skins managed to score a TD with a 25 yard pass to Scary Terry McLaurin. 
       
      The Dolphins would open the Second Half only managing five plays before the Redskins would get the ball punted back to them. They would run a balanced run/pass attack of six plays for 70 yards in 1:25 ending in McLaurin’s second touchdown of the day. The Defense would then get a turnover allowing the Offense to get to Field Goal range and add another 3 points to make the score 17-3. 
       
      To open the Fourth Quarter, Hopkins would miss a 55 yard Field Goal, leaving the score at 17-3.  After being sacked five times, the Dolphins would pull their own switcharoo at QB and go to Ryan “Neckbeard” Fitzpatrick which resulted in a touchdown drive for them, making it 17-10. They went for & recovered the Onside Kick. They also managed to not score any points after that. The Dolphins would find theirselves with ball at the 2:00 Warning. Fitzpatrick would take them on a 9 play 75 yard touchdown drive with six seconds remaining on the clock. Miami went for the win with the 2 Point Conversion and failed. The Redskins would recover the onside kick by Miami and Keenum took a knee to get the Redskins their first win of the season.

No, but Baker still regularly follows the Skins and comments on Skins-related stuff, as he's become a fan, after being a player (during the Callahan years)

Yes, the top quote is Baker's response to Keim's lower quote.

So it would make sence for simba and mclovin to hook up on the field during game day...hopefully the coaches have some stuff drawn up specifically for the two

Is Flowers poor play leading to Catelina or Parris or Hance  to get more snaps?  Who's getting the most snaps at C, Bergstron, Dunn or Pierschbacher with Roullier out?

Christian on Day 2 started getting work, so he's the main guy behind Flowers at the moment.

Bergs is getting the most work at Center.

 

FYI to all - that was Geron Christian's son that recovered the fumble by Trey Quinn in the earlier video.

and in the other video of Manusky & Ryan, it took me a while to realize this, but they were actually impersonating fans - so they were mocking us !

Flowers might not even make it out of camp if the young guards wind up being any good.

I have a feeling Cally is asking Flowers to use a new technique, or approach. To try to correct for his previous shortcomings or bad habits. It's a theory, but it could explain the long leash he is getting. Basically having him push through and gain reps to learn. Former OL can maybe chime in but imagine coaches will adjust hip level hand placement.... everything imaginable. And that it is damn hard to change as one play after another DL are attacking you at full speed. OL are grossly undervalued.  Its not just a young QB whose head can spin from too many coaching changes, or fat playbooks. 

 

A team can be built interior first rendering the OTs not as important for the QB will always have a step up. That too may explain him not inside as yet. Incredibly he may be better at T than G.  Or, maybe Sweat is THAT good... and expecting Flowers to do well vs him is just not a reasonable expectation. Coaches know this, so he remains at LT despite poor showings.

 

I guess my prediction of Catalina at LT is not going to happen.

 At first I thought you were referring to Califan with "Cally", especially since he just posted about Flowers

Flower was interviewed and the above is absolutely correct. He said he's working on incorporating a skip step vs just a back step that D lineman have keyed on in the past as to direction. He said he was predictable and this step addition "should" allow him to be more unpredictable...So he is working on technique and he recognizes *some* of his faults.

At least the dude is working to improve. I hope the light bulb comes on and Cally can get Flowers turned around. What he did with scrubs was phenomenal so I do have some hope he can work with a 1st round talent (yes..a bust for now but the guy "had" shown talent). Better show soon though...I'm rooting for him

From what I’m hearing so far, it sounds like Haskins isn’t quite ready yet (at the moment) to start. Seeing Keenum start the season would be pretty cool i think. I feel like we could win a few games with him
