With the kind of injuries suffered at almost every position, it was nice to see the will, and fight the Redskins put forth yesterday.
I think where I was most impressed, was at the offensive line. With the inconsistent play coming in to the game, an O-line shuffle isn't exactly something that boosts your confidence. But I must say, Heyer looked comfortable at RG. Was it just me? Especially on the running plays, Heyer was just manhandling his opponent. And no one likes to get manhandled.
And the Titan's D-line isn't a bunch of chumps, either. They are a very athletic, strong bunch of guys. Our line just seemed to beat them at the point of attack (more so on straight-ahead running plays).
And as far as our defense, it's hard to contain Chris Johnson for very long. But I thought our defense did a good job at controlling the line of scrimmage and moving laterally with the flow of the offense. Reed Doughty still sucks in coverage, but that's nothing new.
The amount of injuries still scare me a bit.
Hoping we can get Torrain back healthy. Even though Williams ran really well, he still doesn't look a 100%. And Portis... well... Portis is a revolving door of injuries. I really think we should bring up Terrance Austin (think we did, just wasn't active). I know there has to be a reason for him to have been on the prac squad under R. Williams and Galloway, but neither of those guys are blowing anyone a way.
All-in-all I think we fought hard and made the most out of what we had. And this league is about W's and L's -- and we came out on the W side!
