If the rest of the group was pretty much fault-free, I would suspect that Paulsen is the only problem. That's not the case.

I've held out hope for Hankerson and Robinson but for me I've not seen enough flashes to think of either one becoming a good WR, but i acknowledge its still early to rule them out,
Of course, this is just false starts... other penalties are a different animal.
You said that the Redskins WR/TE's are responsible for a large number of false start penalties that are killing drives and causing close games to be lost. You then said that this is a result of the offense being to complicated and it should be simplified.
What I am pointing out is that one person is skewing the stats of our team. If you remove that one person then our offense has no more or less false starts then other teams in the NFL from the WR/TE position.
That one person is also playing a roll in our offense that was unexpected. Due to the limited practice time that the new CBA allows there also is only so much room to get him up to speed so that he is not over thinking his assignment and causing these penalties.
This is Paulsen's third year. If the new CBA limits practice time, that's all the more reason to simplify the scheme. Isn't it?That one person is also playing a roll in our offense that was unexpected. Due to the limited practice time that the new CBA allows there also is only so much room to get him up to speed so that he is not over thinking his assignment and causing these penalties.

It would seem that we get a lot of calls due to the shifting and movement prior to the snap. This seems to me nagnified by the TE's which so much of the motion and setting prior to the snap. That would seem to suggest that maybe we limit some of that to have them set and not moving which could decrease the probability of a penalty.

Even going by pro football focus metric (ironically enough) the 2 receivers I currently considered the least productive on the roster but the greatest upside) are ranked #60 A.Robinson and #62.
That would make them starting caliber WRs (based on their being 32 teams with 2 starting WRs per team).
I consider the Steelers game to be a clear outlier, (10 drops in one game). I think its inacurate to attribute the low point total in the Panthers game to poor play from the WRs. Playcalling/decision making and injury to Tana were imo far greater factors then overall WR play.
Just for the sake of comparison here's football outsiders:
Moss is ranked #48 in DYAR and #42 DVOA
Morgan is #50 and #51 respectively
M. Wallace (steelers)
I think if we ran a regular passing offense or the passing offense from last year their numbers would be higher and you wouldn't have such a high level of frustration or opinion of them. Moss and Morgan are imo are not the worst tandem of WRs in the NFL and the our offensive production and their production support that.

Where would the Redskins group minus Paulson be with respect to every other team w/ their highest player removed?
If you do that and the Redskins aren't high any more, then Paulson might REALLY be the problem. If not, then you have a problem beyond Paulson.
