Will Montgomery is just average. Chris Chester is getting old. And Kory is just a tad above average. It's sad when Tyler Polumbus makes other linemen look bad.

We don't have a bad line. They just aren't very good outside of the scheme. When it's man on man, they look average.

The Defense is weak. You can't give up 32 points a game and expect to win.

No, none of the interior linemen can pass block in the NFL and all three need to be replaced. The Denver game and this game are enough proof.

Polumbus is also pretty bad, I don't want to leave him out.

I hope he's not helping this offense next season


Then there are those that say a few iffy play calls make a guy a bad play caller and a bad OC and that designing plays is the same as game planning. They tend to ignore all the really good play calls, the gaping holes, the wide open drops, and the wide open misses.

Yes we do. Too bad the refs allow such ragdoll treatment while the other team's guy is protected from us.

You think he's as fast as last year??

I'm sorry but I can't call his play-calling stupid when the receivers are open and Robert sail the pass over their head. Roberts accuracy was off and has been off for quite a while. Not say Kyle is infallible, he's far from it. But every article, this one included is saying that the receivers are WIDE OPEN, but Robert can't find them. That's NOT Kyles fault. The plays are working as designed, Robert has to grow into being a proper drop-back QB.


I agree that Robert's got a lot of work to do and that there have been a number of 'open' players that he's missed …

I think he'll continue to improve in this offense - IMO - he's better each game

I don't think that Kyle's game planning and play calling are in sync with Robert's adapting from what he did last season

I don't think that we're seeing much from Kyle - I think he's a good play caller but I don't think he's good enough - that's probably just me :lol:


Looks like we are a bit closer in our assessment that you've indicated elsewhere.

Last season Kyle (and Mike) game planned and called plays that suited what RG3 and their playmakers could do well AND what the opposing defenses would most likely have trouble defending

this season, IMHO, Kyle (and possibly Mike) have not done as good a job - our offense has not been as efficient
I do think that Kyle is a good play caller - he was last season and in Houston - you cannot discount that and I'm sure he can be again :twisted:
he's not doing as good a job this season

btw - I don't know if RG3 is as fast as last season …. but …. it's fair to use the word 'fast' when talking about his speed :)
The Redskins need to change to improve - we need a better GM and we need to do a better job of who we bring in to coach and play here - players and coaches need to be held accountable when they do not do their jobs well

How many times did Bob get hit in the pocket yesterday? The most decidedly did not look average.

Sorry folks - we still stink. Sorry that we stink, and sorry that I can't think of anything more useful to say.
