Guys and gals - first, sorry for getting this out late this week. We had some stuff going on. That being said, at least it’s out.
In what you all know was a rough, sloppy, turnover-filled game, the Redskins loss to the Browns showed us all what we thought we already knew - that we are NOT a good football team; nor are the Eagles who we beat week one.
No one should be surprised by the record, and I think we can probably all agree that things are going to get a bit worse before they get better.
Below are some cut-ups of the game and some comments about the plays that are highlighted.
Dwayne Haskins Jr. - This was an abysmal game for the second year quarterback who now has 10 games started on his professional resume. Like I have said before, we need to see progression from the start of the season to the end of it from him, and Sunday’s game was a large step backwards.
Some of his misses were simply high-schoolish, but when he sets his feet, has a clean pocket and trusts those around him, he shows promise.
Morgan Moses - Moses has been a pleasant surprise this season. He came into camp healthy and down about 20 pounds - and it shows in his play. He’s also taken on a Trent Williams’ like demeanor.
In the clip below, you see Moses keep two defenders at bay!
Geron Christian Sr. - Christian has certainly taken his lumps early this season, and just when you think he’s showing signs of improvement, he goes and lays a complete egg.
Christian loses his balance here and gives up pressure. This has been a reoccurring theme for him early in this young season. pic.twitter.com/diAnJD7X0m— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) September 29, 2020
Wes Schweitzer - Schweitzer has stepped in for the injured Brandon Scherff, and aside from a few communication issues, has done a pretty decent job.
Wes Martin - I understand our offensive line has not been very good this year, but Wes Martin continues to really struggle. At this point, he’s just not getting it, and I have my doubts he ever will.
This is on Wes Martin. There is a gap defender to the play-side. You AT LEAST have to pop his right shoulder with your near arm to help slow him down. Martin doesn’t even touch him ♂️ pic.twitter.com/H1Tx31fehy— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) September 29, 2020
Terry McLaurin - It’s very easy to see that we have a special talent in Terry McLaurin. Below you see the phantom offensive pass interference call against F1.
For what it’s worth, this, in my opinion, was a HUGE turning point in the game.
Antonio Gandy-Golden - AGG is just a rookie, and he’s very raw, but you see glimpses in his game...and then you see the rawness.
AGG doesn’t look like a 4.6 guy here . But WOW! What a shot here at the end pic.twitter.com/X9AEsnAzhL— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) September 29, 2020
Logan Thomas - Count me as one who has not at all been impressed with Logan Thomas...
Tim Settle - The big fella is quietly having himself a nice start to the season. As unfortunate as Matt Ioannidis’ injury is, it should give Settle more chances to shine.
Montez Sweat - When rookie Chase Young left the game with a groin injury, all eyes were on Montez Sweat - and the second year EDGE did not disappoint!
Troy Apke - Apke’s season keeps getting worse. One week it’s blown coverage, the next it’s poor recognition and angles...but it’s ALWAYS tackling!
Landon Collins - Collins has had an up and down start to the season - but whatever this was, it was NOT good!
