   Post subject: The Redskins earned their third straight victory
Reply with quote

this past weekend in another NFC East divisional matchup. Although the talent is there Youth Jonathan Allen Jersey (www.authenticswashingtonredskins.com/cheap-jonathan-allen-jersey) , the New York Giants are a mentally battered team and each week it infects their team as they step on the playing field. The Redskins did not fall into the potential “trap” spot; instead, they dominated the Giants offense throughout the game. Adrian Peterson continues his comeback player of the year campaign in solid fashion, closing out the Giants late in a one-possession game. Peterson is a significant part of the Redskins 5-2 start, but that was known already. What did we learn from the victory at MetLife Stadium? Let’s take a look.Run the ball and stop the run. The 2018 Redskins identity is clearly defined, and they will live and die by it throughout the year.Look there is nothing pretty about how the Redskins want to come out of a game with a victory. It comes down to who will be more physical up front, who wears down whom first, and that is who will escape the slugfest with a victory when facing the 2018 Washington Redskins. The Redskins are averaging 30 carries per game offensively while limiting teams to 21 carries and a 3.8 yard per carry average. Washington wants opposing teams to abandon the run and feel one dimensional, which is when the “dogs” are let loose. The pass rush has increased significantly as the weeks moved along, whether it is blitzes or straight up four-man rushes, Washington has accumulated 21 sacks in seven games and has them now tied for fifth in the NFL. Of course, seven sacks in one game against the Giants terrible offensive line and a statue of a quarterback will inflate your numbers, but there is no question games like that will boost pass-rushers confidence moving forward. This is the identity of the Redskins, so if you do not like it buckle-up, there are at least nine more games left. Coaching matters – Remember that as Josh Doctson and Jordan Reed’s impact on the offense continues to grow.Josh Doctson and Jordan Reed have not put up ridiculous numbers over the past three games. Targets matter, whether it is completed or not, the emphasis on getting passes thrown to players who “need” to contribute and make a difference is going to be a driving factor for this offense moving forward. The coaches, specifically head coach Jay Gruden www.authenticswashingtonredskins.com/cheap-dustin-hopkins-jersey , recognize that the offense is hanging on by a thread relying on Adrian Peterson to carry the offense. In the Redskins two losses, Peterson had a combined 15 carries for 26 yards (1.7 ypc). The Redskins have the sixth worse pass attack in the NFL, the worst it has ever been under Jay Gruden since the 2014 season where they ranked 11th. Over the past three games, Reed and Doctson combined have gotten 41 targets for 27 catches, which is a 66 percent catch rate. Expect the targets to remain consistent with these two players as they continue to be relied upon moving forward in an offense in dire need of a reliable playmaker(s). The team has their faults but relax, enjoy the ride, the Redskins are a good team, and it will be a fun season. They are a good team, and it is time to increase the expectations moving forward.I understand being cautiously optimistic, and tempering expectations are the preferred route for most Redskins fans, it is even displayed in me at times as I write. However, the fact of the matter is regardless of how nervous fans feel, the Redskins are a good team. It is time to embrace the quality team Jay Gruden and his staff have developed. How good are they? Washington may not be on the level of the Patriots, Saints, Rams, or Chiefs but they damn sure can compete with the best of the rest without a doubt. Expect the Redskins to have a good chance of winning against the rest of their opponents, because they are fully capable of doing so. Though the passing game on offense is struggling so far this season White Paul Richardson Jersey (www.authenticswashingtonredskins.com/cheap-paul-richardson-jersey) , the rushing attack and a solid defense will remain a factor as the weather starts to change up which goes in favor of Washington. It is okay to let your guard down a little, they may not win every game left on the schedule, but they will compete.Redskins Fall To Indianapolis Colts In Home Opener, 21-9 [Redskins fans: Sign up for our weekly Redskins survey, 3 quick questions each week]Washington had their fits with Indianapolis throughout the day, struggling on both offense and defense in a variety of ways. The first half was not kind, the interior rush for the Colts wreaked havoc among the guards and center for the Redskins offensive line. The best rushing attack for the Redskins was jet sweeps to Jamison Crowder, leading the Redskins with 2 rushes for 29 yards after two quarters of play. The running backs for Washington combined for seven carries for two yards. It was a very questionable half for Jay Gruden in regards to play calling, it seemed his strategy was to create misdirection, causing the defense to pursue to one side and run in the opposite direction. Hence the decision to dial Crowder’s number multiple times as a ball carrier, and sending him on jet sweep looks a few times. The Redskins finished the first half with 121 total yards offensively and just three points, mainly due to lack of a true ground game, pass protection, and missed opportunities which trickled into the second half as well. Defensively the Redskins started out just as poorly as the Redskins offense, Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton connected often against the Redskins secondary. In addition to solid protection for Luck, the Colts were able to run the ball effectively too, allowing them to do whatever they wanted early. Granted www.authenticswashingtonredskins.com/cheap-zach-brown-jersey , the Redskins defense settled down later into the half, generating pressure late and even forcing a turnover. However, more often than not the Colts have found themselves in favorable down and distances in key situations, 100 percent in the redone and over 50 percent on third down conversions. Washington’s second half started off stronger than the first, but it was not strong enough to overcome the mental errors offensively and defensively. Washington forced Andrew Luck to commit two turnovers but the offense failed to turn them into touchdowns, settling for just six points. As a result of no touchdowns, the Colts responded to a Redskins field goal with a touchdown early in the fourth quarter to essentially put away the Redskins with just a 12-point deficit. In the end, the Colts executed greatly on both sides of the ball and that cannot be taken away from them. They were able to neutralize the Redskins ground game (Crowder the leading rusher for Washington), consistently generated interior pressure, and made Alex Smith look uncomfortable all game. Again, the Redskins leading rusher was a wide receiver today, that is how bad the ground game was. Offensively the use of rub routes and pick-plays created confusion amongst the Redskins secondary, and protection was solid for the most part allowing Luck safe pockets to throw from. As the Redskins head into a tough week three match-up against the Green Bay Packers, it is vital that the Redskins address the offensive struggles the first two weeks. Washington has not scored a touchdown in six quarters and if the Redskins plan to come out of September with a 2-1 record, they need to come out of this offensive funk and help their defense out in a big way.
