I think Peterson still have game left.

I think there could be enough carries, if both were healthy and having a good game.

2 different style runners, to keep the defenses from zeroing in on one, and this will open the passing lanes.

I was just reading between lines of a Peterson interview I heard.  He said something to the effect that it’s not uncommon for guys in his stage of his career to play for multiple teams in a season.  

He’s proven that he can’t stand being a backup.

I do agree that he can still play.  But his strength is through a volume of carries to wear down a defense.

I feel you are right.

But, these days, you need 2 really good quality backs, not just a quality backup QB, or if one goes down, the season is over.

Football is a hard game, many a team around the league are hurt by the injury bug every year.

Yes, it seams this team is plague, but I wonder, if some of that is perception, because this is our team, and we followed it 100x more than the other teams.

It’s a real thing. I can’t cite a source at the moment but we’ve led the league in number of players on IR something like 4 of the last 5 seasons. It’s crazy. We’re not just imagining things here.

What an embarrassment that second half was yesterday. The whole Guice injury and AP inactive thing reeks of the Redskins just being themselves. Rumor has it that the players knew he wasn’t right. Sucks losing Allen for some time too. We just cannot catch a break...pun fully intended.

Manusky leaves a lot to be desired.  No pass rush.  Wentz had a crowhop on that second DJax touchdown.  I’ve been a Jay guy because I believe he’s done a good job with the talent he has.  But he has to make the playoffs or he’s gone.

Despite all that, there was some good things.  They look like they may get a lot out this draft class.

And Flowers and Penn look somewhat passable.

The lack of pass rush was a killer. We have guys who can get home. Philly has a pretty good line though. But I saw zero creativity in the defensive scheme and play calls. 

Mclaurin and Holcomb flashed some. Where was Sweat all day? I know he was on the field a lot. We got zero out of him though. He was largely invisible in preseason too. 

I read this about Penn on ESPN:

Last year Redskins LT Trent Williams recorded a pass block win rate of 92%, above the OT average of 86%. Today his replacement, Donald Penn, posted a PBWR of 73%. PBWR is an ESPN metric powered by NFL Next Gen Stats.

Lastly, picking nits, but why wouldn’t you go for two after the last TD? The game was decided and the spread was covered lol. May as well have gotten some practice at it at least.

I wouldn’t want to put my two point plays on tape.

Harmon had a pair of catches and Moreland did well getting a lot of Morneau’s snaps. You’re right, Sweat didn’t  make any impact plays.  He did have one good play where he set the edge on a run, funneled the rb back inside and made the tackle.  Other than that he didn’t do much.

Scherff and Ioannidis were underwhelming too.

AP is back in the saddle.

Quote

With news that Derrius Guice is set to miss some time due to a knee injury, Peterson -- a healthy scratch in Week 1 -- is back to being the projected starter in Washington. He had 90-plus rushing yards in seven games last season, a sign that he still has gas left in the tank. He's not much of a factor in the passing game, but with the expected 15 or more carries he'll get per game, Peterson should be rostered in all leagues.

Manusky needs to go, the defense has way too much talent to look as bad as it has the first two games.  Sweat was supposed to be a premier talent in the draft and was only available late in first due to health concerns, I just don't see any other reasoning besides coaching and schemes that he shouldn't be in the backfield making plays all day but instead he is no where to be found.

Not that it needs to be said but this team is not a playoff team.  Trade Trent Williams yesterday for a first round pick + and lets focus on building a solid young O-line starting with next years draft.

There are too many pieces on defense for it to be this bad.  Just very vanilla giving the QB a clean pocket to make the deep throw.

I am surprised that Dallas didn’t attack Rodgers-Cromartie more often.

If they don’t make the playoffs (insert joke here), then Gruden is likely out.  Todd Bowles is the guy I want.

The defense being this bad just doesn't make sense.  I figured coming into the season our offense would be sluggish but defense would keep us in some games.  I am actually pretty happy with what the offense has done.  We might actually have a real number 1 WR in Mclaurin his is legit.  

I have heard Kevin O'Connell is a pretty sharp guy and the young coaches are all the rage these days, I wonder if he might be the successor to Jay?

I cannot understand why Trent Williams has not been traded at this point??? I just think there is zero chance there isn't a team in the NFL willing to give up a first round pick next year for him.  Take it and be done.  This team has some good young pieces.  Draft a couple young stud O-linemen in the draft, fill some holes in free agency and I think this team could be a lot better next year.

Ummmm, yikes.

Is Keenum done as the starter for the immediate future?   I didn't watch the game but Haskins's line looks real bad.........

    • I had Hays at about 15.7 tonight on his inside the park job.    He kind of let up as he approached 1B, turned on the jets when the ball got past the CF, and let up again about 20 feet from home plate when it became clear he wouldn’t draw a throw.

    • I remember being enthusiastic about Sulser, and I was very happy when you expressed enthusiasm as well back in February because I felt that I had picked a winner. Based on this post, you seem a little bit less enthusiastic, wondering if you’ve backed off your initial enthusiasm, or if I misread it in the first place? Scott Is Pitching a little bit better, but he still walks guys, Castro is either really on or really off. Sulser Was overthrowing tonight, according to Ben, And I don’t know what causes that, but I am assuming it is adrenaline, which means it’s a mental thing, so if he could calm down a bit he could be more reliable? I still think he or Armstrong is the main guy at the moment?
    • In a regular 162-game season, I often observe that our posters who tend to rely heavily on the metrics (for their determination on whether to be optimistic about the team) will wait til at least half the season is gone before they start to draw any conclusions about how the team is doing. Sometimes they'll make an earlier call if the team starts out extremely bad or good out of the gate, but usually they reserve judgment for as long as possible. To these folks, the entire season will be a "SSS". On top of that, we're making history here -- there has never been a 60 game season in the modern era. There have been a large number of rule changes in recent years, starting with challenges and video review, and culminating in the leadoff guy on 2nd in extras. We can only guess how all these factors will come together to change the dynamics of the game, and even after the season's over, the conclusions we draw will not be well-substantiated due to the relative lack of data that a mere 60 games can provide. For the folks who refuse to get excited until there's a statistically significant track record to suggest that we have something special, they may spend this entire season just shrugging their shoulders, then blink and notice that it's over (or that the O's are in the expanded postseason). To them I say: that's their right. I don't care. But I'm excited, and hopeful that this ragtag crew will be something special in 2020. I don't care if Sulser or Severino isn't part of the solution in 2022 or 2025. I'm fine with Elias continuing to make moves with the assumption that we are in rebuild mode. I'm fine with folks not even caring about this season because it's weird, and because the confluence of factors that made this season what it is probably won't happen again.  Just to fully lay out my view: I'm totally fine if Elias makes trade moves that harm the O's chances of winning in 2020, if it'll help the club long term. I hope they can win in 2020 despite that. Obviously, I will be upset if I feel that Elias made a move that's not helping us at all (either now or later), but if there's a convincing case that we can give up someone today to have a significant boost tomorrow, I still say go for it. I'm just living in the moment, taking it day by day, and enjoying our baseball team's success right now. Someone's gotta root for these guys!
