  • What’s Really Wrong With Washington Redskins’ Offense?


    Okay, so by the numbers, the Redskins offense overall ranks 17th in the 3 major categories (yards per game, pass yards per game, and rush yards per game). They rank 22nd in the league in yards per play. They’re tied for 19th in yards per carry, and 12th in attempts per game. They’re tied for 25th in plays from scrimmage with 327, of which 180 are passing attempts. That’s 55%, which is respectable.

    But let’s break down into more numbers. On first down, the Washington Redskins (with Rex Grossman) have attempted 67 passes. Ryan Torain has run on 15 first downs, Hightower 38 times, and Roy Helu 15 times. That’s 68 attempts on the ground vs. 67 attempts through the air. Read the rest of this entry »

    Who’s Laughin’ Now?


    For those who read my last blog about Grossman (Redskins Start With Grossman) you’ll note I kind of predicted this last weekend’s performance.

     

    For the game, Grossman was 21 of 34 (62% completion) for 305 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions (though one was close) and one fumble. While Antrel Rolle may whine about how the Giants would beat the Redskins “95 out of 100 times” Rolle has failed to recognize that we didn’t beat New York because our offense was better; we beat them because our defense was.

    Redskins Start with Grossman

    We all know that Rex Grossman has been to the Super Bowl, and conventional wisdom says he went on the backs of his defense. We consider it the same as the 2003 Ravens who won the Super Bowl with Trent Dilfer who only started the last half of the season.

     

    Clearly, Baltimore won the Super Bowl in spite of their quarterbacks that year.

     

    Maybe we judge Grossman too harshly. The 2006 Bears were 2nd in the league in scoring that year putting up 427 points. I’m not sure we can say that Chicago made it on defense alone like Baltimore did.

    Tale of the Tape: Bucs


    Tonight will be the last preseason game for both the Washington Redskins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The fourth game is often a bit of a throw away as coaches often try to get the starters a series or two of action, and then just look at their depth positions. Tonight at Fed Ex Field, there are likely more questions to be answered for both organizations, so expect to see at least a good first half of football.

    The Bucs are 2-1 in the preseason so far, and are coming off of a 17-13 victory last week over the Miami Dolphins. The Redskins share that same 2-1 preseason record, but are of course coming off of a 34-31 loss at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens. Here is a look at the, “oh so important” numbers for both squads, and their respective league rankings: Read the rest of this entry »

    Beltway Battle Preview: Ravens


    The Washington Redskins will square off against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night at FedEx Field. The third preseason game is often a very telling tale of what fans can expect to see in Week 1 of the regular season, but will that be true in 2011? With a lockout shortened offseason, NFL teams may very well need that fourth preseason game as well to get ready. Normally, that game is reserved for determining depth positions and/or special teams, but expect to see evaluation throughout the lineup this year. So what should you look for tomorrow night?

    Redskins v. Steelers: Helped and Hurt


    The Washington Redskins had an impressive debut with their 16-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Friday night. Sure it’s only the preseason, but not only did the Redskins earn the win, there were plenty of performances to be encouraged by.

    Basically preseason games boil down to one important, and simple concept – evaluation. So here’s my look at the guys who helped themselves, and the guys that may have hurt themselves.

    Can Grossman be for Real?


    Grossman’s recent performance in his pre-season debut with the Redskins got me to thinkin’; can this guy really be better than I thought? Yeah sure it’s a preseason game, but I expected to see fumbled handoffs, interceptions and stalled drives the moment McNabb took his pads off. I think we all felt the same thing; Buffalo must be really bad if they can make Rex Grossman look like our starter.

    It’s easy to have doubts about the abilities of Rex Grossman even though he’s played in a Super Bowl. Everyone knows that Grossman made his way into that Super Bowl on the backs of his defense. When you think about Grossman you see a QB rating of 59.7 since he achieved that rating twice in his career with the Bears.
