Sorry if this was covered before. I was visiting family in MN and didn't have access to my laptop.
I was just really, really disappointed in this game (Redskins vs. MN). After the Niners and Bears had stacked the box and run blitzed us, thus clogging the running lanes and preventing anyone from running up the middle, we continued to try it, without any countermeasures. I would have thought that Childress would have come up with a solution to that after seeing it for two weeks in a row !!!!
::) Only late in the 3rd did we finally throw a screen to AP to get him in "space". We didn't run the "hot read" pass at all that I saw.
- Tarvaris. Madden said it all: "he doesn't have NFL mechanics". Thank you, John. You nailed it in 5 words". He has regressed since the Giants game. He really doesn't look like an NFL QB. Look at his mechanics. I don't like it at all, and particularly that insane "jump ball" thing he threw. Are you kidding me ? Don't we have a QB coach ?
- Defense: well, not having Winfield in hurt big. 31 was victimized all night. We didn't blitz enough.
In short, we were massively outcoached in this game. What a huge disappointment, to lose to a 3rd string QB at home.
