I've been waiting for Greg Olsen to have a breakout game this season...and I hope I don't have to wait any longer than this Sunday. The Redskins defense overall is pretty bad but they are especially bad against the TE. They've allowed about a TD a game to the TE over the course of the season, including two to Heath Miller of the Steelers last week (a nice fantasy day).

What happened to featuring the TE in this offense? Get back to your roots Chud, feed the ball to Greg Olsen.

As long as Olsen doesn't just stand there and watch a pass get intercepted because it's not within a few feet of him.

We fed the ball to Olsen in the Atlanta game and still lost.

The problems with the team are not coaching, play calling, offense, the quarterback, the defense, not the special teams etc.. At least they are not any one of those things alone.

The problems right now are mostly mental. When its crunch time, we make mistakes in several phases of the game. It was that way in several games last year, and its becoming more and more prevalent. If Ron Rivera can't figure out a way to turn it around, then perhaps he should be fired. Not because he has done that bad of a job, but because we need some mental adjustments.

Hit RG3 early and often he will fold up. You give him time to throw its over he's deadly accurate combine that with his speed and it can get ugly. You have to keep him in the pocket and not let him keep plays alive he's at his best when things break down.

Well the thing is Olsen is never going to single handily take over a game. More than likely is not going to happen this Sunday.

The offense also put up 28 points that day, the second highest total all season...but Atlanta's defense is nothing to get excited about.

True, but the problem is we are losing each game by a few points due to mistakes on offense, or defense, or special teams, or coaching, or some combination thereof. The only thing thats going to fix it is to quick making so many mistakes during crunch time.

I hope that Hardy and CJ knock the poop out of RG3 at some point in this game. Too bad Beason won't be playing. He's been known to let a QB know he was there

Olsen needs to get the ball more. I think the only positive thing that could come out of losing steve smith is that the offense would involve Olsen and the other TEs more

Olsen's not been targeted as much lately as he was the first few games of the season.

I was going to start a thread about this. Not just against the Redskins, but in general.

More running, more TE passes (short/intermediate passes) Just to keep things moving. I mean, it wasn't as prominent last weekend, but most this season the passes are long developing down field passes all the time. We need more move'n the chains" style passes. And I think that's where our TE's can help out more.

Here's hope'n.
