i find it amazing that a team goes 0-3 when their defense scores a td! just weird
A Dallas fan is like a fake Christmas tree........
(you get to put them away come January)
Our defense was better this week than last week. Just like last year, our defense is on the field too much of the game. On the rushing touchdown, it looked like one or two linebacks were out of position and it also looked like our players were exhausted. They forced Ryan to throw to the tight end in order to avoid giving up long passing plays. The Falcons in the first half had to take what our defense was giving them.

Doesent matter why or how our defense is playing if the offense is out of sync and can't score. We still lose. And when our offense clicks and does score then our D decides to take the week off. We can't seem to get it all together at the same time ever. So while we'll be in most games, we'll lose more than we should. Both sides have shown the ability to dominate. The main issue is half time adjustments by our opposition and our inability to readjust. Bend but don't break is fine, but it leaves the d on the field longer than should be. But with all our injuries, might be the only option Hasslett has at keeping his job.

The defense had a hot start, as did Atlanta's. Our D was the first to go cold as our offense kept stalling. This is the usual case of Redskins Opposites, where one side of the team plays well and the other is no where to be found

The Falcons are just a really good, talented team that can hurt you in a lot of ways. Pretty well rounded. Skins were competitive but have some things to sure up in the off season. Sometimes it's the talent of the other team and what they do more than what we didn't do. We're getting there though.
Bend don't break was a good strategy to deal with the Skins' personnel issues. No one would be complaining about the defense if the Offense had been able to sustain drives and score more than ten points.
While the defense played better, it was frustrating to watch. I think Haslett played a little too conservative, he could have mixed in a few more blitzes to get more pressure. Ryan had way too much time.
I understand our problem though; we can't cover. When Josh Wilson and Reed Doughty are the starters, we're going to have issues in the secondary.
What's being overlooked in this game is that ATLANTA was the one that executed their gameplan perfectly against us; they sustained long drives, kept control of the ball, and kept RGIII off of the field. That's what they wanted to do. So many people were focused on Atlanta having a balanced and dangerous offense that they forgot that coming into the game, the Redskins' offense was even more explosive than their opponent's. The longer Atlanta kept the ball, the better off they were.
