Injuries to starters
Lack of Quality Depth
Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said he and his teammates didn’t really have an answer for the fourth-year pro out of Texas Tech. Washington spent much of the game in zone coverage, but Amendola found openings and used his speed and elusiveness to generate yards after the catch. The Redskins also used some man coverage on Amendola, and he managed to get open despite that coverage as well.
I love the strategy on Cousins pick, but I think it's too early for the Skins to be trying to make value picks for potential trade bait when there are so many holes.
In theory its the right way to go. In reality a team like the skins cant afford to create trade bait, yet. Once the team is stocked with talent on both sides of the ball (will it ever be?) then it's a good idea to look at developing a QB for trade bait like what New England has done, and Philly in the past....
Injuries, personel moves and Defensive Coaching.
Doesn't anyone see that under shanahan we are just one rg3 injury from being the worst nfl team this year and some of the worst stats in nfl history? This is what shanahan has compiled over 2 1/2years. Other then the obvious rg3 pick his player selection has been horrible. I want an apology as a long time skins fan for putting this crap on the field w absolutely no progress for his term. It's truly humiliating!
Because if we did that and used that 4th round pick on a DB we would be in the Super Bowl!!!!! [/sarc]
Seriously. I wonder if any of you have been watching football for more than a few years. An if you have paid any attention in that short period of time.
Bottom line is that this team sucks because it was run for a decade just the way you want to run it now. You want to fire a HOF bound coach and join the coaching carousel again? Great let's go through a new coach every year. Who needs continuity. Let's fire the pro and hire a rookie HC to teach Griffin a new offense next year. And when he doesn't work out we can hire a new one the year after that. Because that has worked so well in the past.
Here's a tip. Look around the league at the best teams and what do you find? Continuity. They have a system and they work at it year after year.
The ONLY reason this team has struggled is because of personnel issues. Poor Shanahan had to take over a team saddled with the likes of a POS like Haynsworth and many of your so called "experts" here thought Haynsworth should have stayed and Shanahan let go. How many millions in cap space has Shanahan NOT had to work with for no fault of his own? Yet somehow it's all his fault for not turning a team full of second stringers into Super Bowl champions.
I dont know why I'm so surprised. We've turned into a scapegoat society where actual solutions are not as desired as punishing someone... ANYONE for a perceived failing even if they are not at fault.
My question for the anti-Shanahan crowd... Name the starters expected to play next weekend who would start on most other teams in the NFL. I'm talking walk on and take the job because they are clearly better than the other guy. You cant get to 5. Think about that.
