Redskins Vs. Patriots - Studs and Duds Colt McCoy - McCoy was accurate and looked in complete command of a simplified offense. He was 13/18 for 189 yards and two touchdowns. Maurice Harris - Harris ran good routes Authentic Da'Ron Payne Jersey , caught everything thrown his way (including a 4 yard TD), and even showed some punt return ability.Robert Davis - Had 3 receptions for 35 yards and showed excellent RAC ability and good speed in limited action. Cam Sims - Sims did not catch a ton of passes in college, but he showed the ability Thursday night to beat coverage, and was dangerous after the catch. he hauled in a beautiful long pass in the second quarter which he made some nice moves and took it down to the three yard line. Byron Marshall - Not a ton of touches, but he shows how explosive he can be as a receiver out of the backfield. he had a nice touchdown catch where he broke a tackle and beat the defender to the endzone. Samaje Perine - Looked quick and powerful, especially on some plays that were not blocked extremely well. One nice run was brought back on yet another Kalis penalty. He did have a fumble in traffic though, that was not called. Matt Ioannidis - Ioannidis was a beast in limited action last night against the Patriots. He couldn’t be blocked one-on-one, and was even a menace when he was double teamed. Shaun Dion Hamilton - Had some splash plays, but also made some rookie mistakes. One thing that stood out though - this kid is very athletic. He’s not afraid to fill a hole. He did get de-cleated by Hill on a blitz, and dropped his head at the goalline and missed a tackle that could have saved a TD.Besides that, he showed out in both run support and coverage. This kids going to be good! Danny Johnson - I thought the rookie from Southern played very well, albeit against a pretty bland Patriots offense. He showed to be very active in coverage, making plays a few passes, and was not afraid to stick his head in the middle of the action to make a tackle, or come up to set an edge. Kenny Ladler - This kid is not afraid to come up and hit you! He looks like he was shot out of a cannon! Good game by the former Canadian star. Duds:Kyle Kalis - Three penalties and some inside pressures given up - not a good night at all for the backup guard fighting for a roster spot. Tyler Catalina - gave up two pressures Authentic Adrian Peterson Jersey , and was not effective in the run game as a blocker. Geron Christian - Christian may have some potential for the future, but it was very clear Thursday night that he’s not yet ready for the speed of the NFL game. He struggled mightily when he was asked to block an edge rusher in space.John Kling - Sorry, but Kling is NOT an NFL offense tackle. He looked horrible, with extremely slow feet, against the Patriots reserves. Elijah Wellman - I counted at least three missed blocks - one on what should have been an easy blitz pick-up in the first quarter if he worked inside out like he’s taught. He also was called for holding on Guices’ long run. He did have a few catches out of the backfield, but it looks like our dream of keeping a true fullback may not happen. Ondre Pipkins - Just a HORRIBLE showing by Pipkins. He was unable to hold his ground in the run game. I counted a few times where he was driven 5 yards down field. It’s completely unacceptable to get driven 10 yards off the ball on third and short when the play in coming right at you! Fall the heck down...or something!Deshazor Everett - He did not play a ton in this game, but I counted two missed tackles where he seemed to just drop his head and lose sight of his target. Not a good showing for the veteran. Fish Smithson - Had a few missed tackles, and generally looked lost in coverage. It seemed to be easy to manipulate his position in coverage with a simple shoulder shrug. Notes:Zach Vigil - Maybe he’s just playing by the new rules, but I noticed a bunch of times he went low (and I mean VERY low - like around the ankles) on ball carriers, allowing them to fall forward for extra yards. Troy Apke - Had a nice pass defended from his deep safety position late in the second quarter on a 3rd down and long. He showed willingness in run support, with some ups and downs in tackling. Rob Kelley - It does look like the off-season weight loss paid off, as he looks much quicker this year.Matt Flanagan - He looked like the better option if the team does decide to keep a FB/H-Back.Casey Dunn - I thought Dunn played pretty well in reserve duty at center. he anchors very well when he gets his hands inside a defender. Jerod Fernandez - made some nice tackles, but also missed a few in space. You can see he’s more of a box player, as he looks very limited when matched up in space against a quicker player. Tim Settle - had some splash plays where he looked quicker than any player on the field at the snap of the ball. Then he had some plays where it looked like he was just going through the motions out there. Boy, you can see the potential though! He’ll need to be rotated quite frequently to keep him fresh. He did have a fumble recovery late in the game as well. To be honest http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/preston-smith-jersey , there was no way for Washington to come out any worse than they did in their outing against the New Orleans Saints. Forget the “Primetime” element of the football game that is secondary to the issue at hand; with a great opportunity that rarely comes for Washington, they flat out wet the bed. Whether or not one thought the Redskins were going to win or lose coming into the game, the last thing that would have been taken into consideration would be the minimal effort by the players and coaches. There are a few things that need to be brought to light and discussed after such a game.An ugly loss against the Saints exposed a Gruden tenure coaching flawOver the five years Washington has been led by Gruden, opportunities such as a chance to take an early two-game lead on the rest of the division, or compile a decent win streak early in the year come very seldom. However, this is what makes these games most memorable; the Gruden-led Redskins came out flat and unprepared. This was one of the worst outings his teams have shown in some time but the point of preparedness, or lack thereof, remains. Post-game Gruden stated that his team played poorly and it was a reflection on himself, and he is absolutely correct. The issue with Gruden acknowledging the lack of preparedness by bd5ff66e7036040b91bf4f3cc0cdf92e.jpg him and his staff is a flaw that can prove to be fatal. The rate in which he has admitted this post-game after blown opportunities in big spots continues to grow.The Players have a flaw too - Urgency and Awareness of what is at stake is not presentGruden has his issues that only he can worry about; however, the players run into issues in big games consistently as well. The Saints offense could do anything they wanted against the Redskins defense, the execution by the Saints along with the Redskins effort, resulted in a brief second-half benching of cornerback Josh Norman. It was terrible; the Redskins had a better team on the field than 2017 heading into this Monday night matchup against the Saints and found a way to lose the game in the first two quarters. The Redskins offensive line could not handle the Saints defensive front or their blitzes, and neither could quarterback Alex Smith, who played poorly, to say the least. The Redskins have time in and time out no matter who was the coach http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/shawn-lauvao-jersey , underperformed in spots to prove they are better than the perceived thoughts of them and Monday Night was no different. The defense is not ready to shoulder the load for this team yetComing into the game the Redskins had the first-ranked defense in the NFL in points and yards, and obviously due to the early bye week, it looked better than what they were. The Redskins defensive line was a staple of this defense, controlling the line of scrimmage and making it difficult on opposing quarterbacks to sit in the pocket with little concern. Their most significant test of the season to date was against the Saints and it was a gauge to see where they truly stood in the ranks of other NFL defensive fronts. They are not ready yet. Jonathan Allen, Matt Ioannidis, and Daron Payne did not have to dominate the entire game to prove how good they were. The trio is young; dominating a good offensive line an entire game should not be an expectation, however making a noticeable difference should be expected. That was not the case; they still have a ways to go before being considered a top defensive front, because there are offensive lines just as good as the Saints the Redskins will face this year. “Pressure Percentage” ratings are overratedFor those who have made excuses for the edge rushers not being able to get sacks to this point in the season, the Saints game showed why pressure percentage ratings are overrated. All the pressures in the world mean nothing if you are unable to get home to the quarterback, and last night was another example of why many need to see the production of Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith for what it is. Their impact is minimal, and it is a problem. Playing with leads is essential for the Redskins offenseAlex Smith is a good quarterback, no question about it, but he is also a limited quarterback. Smith is incapable of keeping up in a shootout or getting a team back into games if the lead is too big, and a 20-point first half deficit was proven to be too costly. Smith is a quarterback who works well with a productive running game and balanced offense overall. If the Redskins struggle to run the ball effectively and even protect Alex, which was the case Monday http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/trent-williams-jersey , the Washington offense will struggle. Overall, it just was not a good game for Alex, even when things were going well during drives, he looked flustered and was off on throws he was not pressured on. It is imperative that Washington continue to emphasize getting ahead early in games moving forward, trailing and getting behind in games will be a great challenge for this team.Do not overreact too much this week, the Saints are Super Bowl contenders and showed whyBefore the start of the season, I firmly believed the Saints would contend and come out of the NFC to play for the Super Bowl in our season prediction article. The Saints showed why they are a force to be reckoned with Monday night, an elite offense with great balance alongside a defense that has the capability of settling down and getting back to their 2017 form. The Redskins did not even face them at full-strength and still experienced how great of a team they are, especially with a leader as great as Brees. Do not overreact as many do after losses, and the Redskins are not as bad as they showed against the Saints. The bigger question is; wherever you saw them before the start of the game, are they truly as good as you thought they were? One thing is for sure; they are not on the level of New Orleans.
