Redskins @ Giants – Third Quarter Thoughts

  • I was trying to type something about how the offense really needed to keep that momentum from the end of the first half going, but by the time I had anything written they had already gone three and out. Oh well.
  • Great effort by Santana Moss on the third down play, though, to catch a ball between his legs while lying on the ground after having his helmet forcibly removed. If they gave additional yardage for style, that would absolutely have moved the chains.
  • Hey, the Giants stalled and had to punt. All that accuracy that Eli Manning impressed me with suddenly abandoned him, at least for that series. My world spins normally once again.
  • The first Devin Thomas sighting of the season! Nothing too special — a play where it would’ve been impressive if he had managed to keep his feet and get the first down — but he caught the ball and took his hit. It’s a start, at least….
  • Andre Carter puts some pressure on Manning — by which I mean, “launches at him before he releases the ball and tackles him just as he throws” — which leads directly to a Fred Smoot interception. Obviously, I couldn’t hear anything, but I’m sure that led to much shouting and yapping that probably involved the word “lumber” at least once.
  • Another three and out, which is enormously frustrating. Clinton Portis, however, has found a way to work out his frustration: by leveling Mathias Kiwanuka with a block. It still would’ve been nice if the ball had been thrown to a guy who was past the first down stripe, but at least something good came out of the play.
  • Fred Smoot was injured on that play. Shawn Springs is inactive. This means, I suppose, that it is Leigh Torrence time! And, for whatever reason, they don’t pick on him on either of the next two plays. Go figure.

  1. so randle el has had 2 offsides penalties…. wow

  2. Let me guess “Portis up the middle”? Do we have another play?

  3. Cooley looks like he is having a horrible night blocking

  4. Why are we running the ball so much with so little time left…does Zorn trust Campbell?? Doesn’t look like it, or Z-man doesn’t know what he’s doing??

  5. wow what happened to our team, horrible decisions, bad play calls, no blocking

  6. Humiliatingly impotent.

  7. Zorn sure does look like a 3rd choice head coach right now

  8. If this is the “West Coast offense”, California must have finally fallen into the ocean.

  9. PLEASE GIVE UP ON JASON CAMBELL… HE IS SOUP!

    WE NEED A GUY THAT CAN PRODUCE… WHY NOT GO WITH COLT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ZORN HAS NO CLUE!!!!!!!! CLOCK MGT??? ANYONE.. BUELLER??? DAMN, I AM SOOOOOO FREAKING PISSED… THE OFFENSE HAS ALL THE WEAPONS AND CAN’T DO CRAP!!!!! WE ONLY ALLOWED 1 TD…. WE NEED A QB… HE FUMBLES, HE GET’S TOO NERVOUS IN THE POCKET, HE MAKES POOR DECISIONS AND HE IS JUST PLAIN AWEFULL … I WANT TO VOMIT…. WE NEED A CHANGE FOR NEXT GAME. GIVE IT TO THE COLT!!!!!!!!

  10. OUR D WAS SOLID. WE ACTUALLY COULD OF HAD 3 INTERCEPTIONS. 2 DROPS, 1 BY SMOOT AND THE OTHER BY ROGERS… WHAT ELSE CAN YOU ASK OF A DEFENSE THAT WAS ON THE FIELD ALL GAME LONG…. SOLID.

    ZORN AND CAMBELL, NEED 24 HRS OF WORK A DAY!! IT’S BAD WHEN YOU HAVE A RUNNING BACK TELLING YOU WHAT THEY SHOULD DO WHEN YOUR THE HEAD COACH!! :(

    LOOK AT LAST YEAR CAMBELL SUCKED AND THANK GOSH HE STOPPED, AND COLLINS TOOK OVER… I CAN’T STAND EVERYONE SAYING THIS IS HIS 8TH NEW SYSTEM.. I DON’T CARE. YOU ARE GETTING PAID MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO DO YOUR DARN JOB. ALL I CAN SAY IS, I WANT A NEW QB… LET’S MAKE NOISE GUYS AND MOVE THIS GUY OUT… I HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN HIM…. LET’S MAKE SOME NOISE … :)

  11. It did not look like Jim Zorn had this team (especially Chis Samuels) focused. The camera cought him making faces to people in the crowd while taking oxygen. It would explain the poor performance of our offense! I don’t know what percentage of offensive concepts we know, but looking at Jason Campbell’s eyes at the line of scrimage shows that he is not confident in this offense, or our protection. It was nice to see that we finally started to keep some extra guys in to protect, but we should have done that from the start. Go CP w/ the massive chip!!!

  12. Who is managing the clock and who’s call the plays?
    Freakin duh!!!! We’re better than the Giants …come on!!
