    Default A Tank Job or heartbreakers

    Okay, first of all I don't believe they're really purposefully tanking, but... if they were that's how ya do it. Every time you get in scoring territory figure out a way to draw a penalty or let someone loose for an unblocked sack or telegraph your throw and throw late down the middle.

    Oh yeah, and find a 1-7 team that can't run and somehow only force one punt.

    What's crazy is the Redskins looked pretty good today except when they went into slapstick mode.

    I think at this point you got to figure the Redskins are tanking, are cursed, or they're heart breakers. I mean every scoring opportunity they shoot themselves in the foot and every time the Redskins managed to kick a fg the D immediately found a way to let down and let the Dolphins build the lead right back up.

    If this isn't being done intentionally it darn well should be.

    I don't see how it is purposeful, I think the team is just inept. We need a QB so badly it hurts. The line is bad, and the WRs are average. A truly good QB would help all other positions on offense though. The next five games are brutal, I don't see how we win once in those games.

    I willl say I was pleased with Hankerson's play... it just feels like the miscues are so well timed! Perhaps that's why he got "injured." He was doing to well. Of course, the curse explains that too.

    What did JKC bury in the foundation of Fed Ex???

    Shanahan has whiffed in Year 1 and Year 2 at qb and the offensive line and those are the areas that consistently let this team down week to week.

    What is the real surprise?

    You have to question decisions to draft WR (#3), RB (#4) and WR again in #5 and #6 rounds while not taking an OL.

    In free agency, the team only made one move for Chris Chester. There was no depth.

    It is axiomatic that injuries hit you where you have the least depth.

    yup!!!!!! QB who is a leader and a passer. An o-line that can block....including run block.

    The players talent reflects the talent of the coaching staff, perfectly.

    This coaching staff has no clue. In the red zone early in the game, Kyle has Rex Grossman go back on a 5 step drop on third down and the Dolphins sack him for a 15 yard loss.

    Meanwhile, a screen pass or other short zone play would have kept the team in reasonable field goal range.

    It's decisions like that made one or two times a quarter that really set this team back.

    Be honest! I wouldn't have mattered what type of pass Kyle dialed up on that play ... it happened so fast Grossman was going down regardless.

    We need an O-line and a QB. If we just devoted every damn draft pick next year on those two areas alone, we'd be a different team.

    If we moved Trent to RT and started Locklear at LT, would that make you feel comfortable with the bookends? I wouldn't mind seeing this happen, personally, then concentrate on the interior of the line in the draft.

    Oh, I was being serious - not one of those random, old, over-used jokes, about bringing back a long-since-retired player or coach. Marty may have been the best coach we had since Gibbs I, or one of the best. These days tho, he may have a little rust.

    You have to seriously wonder why Shanahan believed that maintaining consistency along a below-average offensive line from a year ago would help it get better. I just don't get that one.

    Turning a blind eye, crossing your fingers, and hoping that things will get better without being proactive rarely is a recipe for success.

    A year and a half into the Shanahan experiment, I for one am beginning to question the ability of Mike as a talent evaluator in today's NFL.

    Regression does little to inspire confidence in a results-driven business.

    Every single one of our picks for QB and OL ? So, how many QB's do you suggest we draft ?

    A better coaching staff would be an even bigger improvement.

    I know we can't fire Shanny, BTW. Not until after 2012 anyway.
    He's just confirming my opinion of him.

    OVER-RATED!!!

    Our last coach was X-Rated (Hardcore Zornography)

    And this coach is over-rated.

    Can we get a PG-13 Coach, please ?

    Not really, he just lead the Virginia Destroyers to the UFL Championship in their inaugural season. Seems to me like he might be exactly what we need. And I am in the boat of people who think he should never have been fired to begin with.

    One, with a top 5 pick, would be nice for starters.
