they were more than happy to let us help them run the clock out.
that is the coaching i am referring to.
i'm not saying they don't have knowledge of X's and O's.
that's not the the same as being an excellent strategist or adjusting and thinking on your feet.
this staff sucks at that stuff.
they know how to run a slant....or whatever play you can name.....they just have no clue as to the "when"
or against which team or players.
Like you said defense are going to start playing man and make it difficult for RG3 to make his first read and then they will just go straight at him and hit him on every play. What kills me is this defense has the speed to stop this guy with our DE and they get fooled everytime with that option gimmick offense. Osi should realize if he is unblocked that Griffen is going to run and not over persue and keep him contain till helps from the linebackers come.Tuck don't even get me started with him he just totally gives up when RG3 makes it to the edge. I cannot tell you how many times I saw that on Monday night.
It's really sad that Tuck is rubbing off on JPP. JPP is how old 23-24,,,,and Tuck teaches him this negative and uninspired play. JPP used to have a motor that was bar none. Now it's like well if the CAPTAIN of the team is giving up chasing this guy I might as well too. We need some nice new young hungry players cause TUCK and Osi have done it all and are ready to retire. Sad cause Tuck is 29 and should want to be one of the Giants great but he'll never get there cause of his attitude. Could you imagine Strahan praising RG3 like Tuck and Osi did....NO way he would. I heard Strahan left like 2 seconds after the game he was probably sick of the love fest that was going on in the middle of the field. Tuck makes me sick he never even talked about Eli like he talks about RG3.
Luck is dedicated to play the quarterback position and finding out all the nuances of reading defense and changing plays... not making subway commercials. It's sad that Luck is being overshadowed by RG3 with The Redskins taylored their whole offense to RG3 and like you said Luck is going through the growing pains of playing the quarterback position. Everyone compares RG3 numbers to Luck but fail to realize that Luck has an aggressive downfield vertical passing game kind of like ours. To me luck should win rookie of the year. You see that Luck can make plays with his feet but does it as the last resort after he goes through all his progressions.
But neither you or I have examined film on the Wash. defense. They don't rely on overly simplistic facts like "they are 31st against the pass". They actually study their strengths and weaknesses based on real thing other than stats created for fans.
So to answer your question, I really don't know what they should have done because I haven't studied the Wash. defense play by play, throughout the year. I also don't know what adjustments they made for this game against us.
Of course neither do you.
there are many QBs in the league who are not allowed audible responsibility
there may even be less QBs allowed this responsibility than ones that are
Michael Vick is among those who is given a play....and he runs that play
when you see most of these QBs barking at the line before a cadence they are adjusting protections not changing plays
....and Eli has access to the whole game plan when at the line not only the plays sent into his ear piece
