Recap: Redskins vs Giants: Game Plan in Action is a Head-Scratcher

Despite the stupid penalty by Laron Landray, the Redskins played rather disciplined giving up only 32 penalty yards but look at the time of possession difference. I mean, wow. Who thought our defense was going to be a problem? Being in the stands, I didn't have the benefit of replays and what not, but two things stood out.

1.) 1st play of scrimmage Portis has a huge gain. Why does Zorn call a gadget play next? Keep running the damn ball. Gadget plays work when you setup a consistent way of beating a team and then you change gears suddenly. Second play of scrimmage? Really? And why didn't Randle-El throw the ball away?

2.) That whole play where Landry got the personal foul. How is Brandon Jacobs turning a corner on this defense?

3.) That hit early in the game London Fletcher had on Jacobs. I wish you could have seen how fast Giants stadium got quiet.
