  1. I'll take my queues from TD, he said we needed to be humbled. We were coming off a game vs the Bucs where we toyed with them like a ball of yarn and were feeling ourselves on a short week. We were prepared for another rope-a-dope and the Steelers rocked us in the mouth. That first TD play call was clearly designed to put Bradberry in conflict and take advantage of his tendency to jump underneath routes. Agree running play action so close to your own end zone is risky but you have to flip the script at some point, honestly Cam should have just eaten the safety - but he's a gunslinger that is capable of greatness under those same conditions so you have to live with that. Rookie covering AB on a fly route with no safety help over the top = 6 pts.
  2. This announcement was about adding black socks to our all black uniforms... something I've personally wanted to see ever since we rolled out the black pants. Oh and this is not a zero-sum game, we can play better defense and come up with cool new uni combos at the same time. Saints may have been first with the all-black uniforms, but we perfected it. That is all.
  3. Yeah, yes... All the CTE stuff forced the league to make a rule that you could not have alternate helmets because the argument is that they're not fitted and adjusted as well as your primary helmet making head injuries more likely. The throwback helmets you see are the same helmets the team always wears with different decals.
  4. Both coaches have said that play was executed incorrectly. I'm saying Washington will present a gameplan to Rivera that does not involve much discussion about individual plays.
  5. I adopted this approach a few years ago and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
  6. I've been involved in a lot of game planning and you don't go over every single play that will be called (that would be impossible). You mostly discuss concepts based on the opponent and highlight some plays that fit those concepts along with some key situational stuff. It would not only be impossible but totally impractical to discuss every play or even the majority of plays that were going to be called during a game, especially on defense where you're constantly adjusting.
  7. Yup, a large % of his snaps feature him as a decoy. He's so versatile that defenses have to honor his presence on the field. The Steelers addressed that by forcing him to stay in and protect last week, so that could be a new blueprint for teams to deal with CMC and Norv will have to counter that. Good news is most teams are not setup to blitz as effectively as the Steelers and with the big lead they had they could afford to continue rolling the dice by sending blitzes to hold our offense in check.
  8. Like others have said, I think Cam played about as well as could be expected under the circumstances. Our defense needs a HUGE bounce back game and if we can't rebound vs the struggling Lions offense I'm going to be really concerned.

    Panthers WAIVE CJ Anderson

    Easy to imagine it was him expressing his disappointment with the lack of playing time to the point the team felt like it could become a distraction.

    Black helmetz for realz?

    Yeah they were selling blue mini helmets too.
  12. Ron is a really good defensive coach, I'm certain he's looking at the calls like WTF too. Washington is in for a long mini-bye week.
  13. Yeah this is the thing, Tepper is taking a hands off approach this year to evaluate so he won't push for anyone to be fired... he's just sitting back and watching what kind of decisions are made.
  14. Blacks socks this time please
