OL needs to get the kinks worked out.  Every player on the OL had their struggles tonight.

 

Elam still needs to learn how to wrap up instead of throwing the shoulder every single time.

 

The run game took a big hit tonight.

 

Otherwise, I was pretty happy.  Issues that showed up when we started the game disappeared as the game went on and that's what I'm looking for in the preseason.

 

You can see the potential this team has.  We just need to correct the minor issues and keep pushing on.

Stupid Light Rail. I stood on the platform for an hour and never got a train. Finally gave up and went home to watch the game.

OMG. I was wondering why you were on.

Didn't want to miss the start and there was no way I was getting to my seat on time if I kept waiting on a train. I hope they have the issue resolved for people trying to leave the stadium.

Was at the game tonight and, for those wondering why Joe held the ball a lot, the wide receivers played like poo. There's a reason Steve Smith and Juice got force-fed the ball: Nobody else was open. Oline was mediocre. Dline was excellent. LBs were slow to read plays but solid overall. RBs made bad reads and didn't run with any sort of conviction. DBs were surprisingly impressive.

 

There's my "in a nutshell" scouting report. I can answer specifics if anyone has questions.

Sounds like the issues we had there last year as well.  Torrey, Marlon, and Jacoby all have trouble separating at times.

Torrey ran the worst in route I've ever seen in my life tonight. I know he's a fan favorite and all but he was not good tonight.

 

The Skins also made sure to sit in the middle to cover the crossing routes. They sat in the middle all game.

Yeah none of those 3 I mentioned are particularly strong route runners.  Rounded corners always make it easier on the DBs.

Im starting to doubt pierce. Cbs played better than expected. Oline will be fine they just need to continue to gel together.

Very impressed by him at CB.  With his ST skills, I think he found himself a spot on this team tonight.

I'm not sure if the DBs played well or the Dline just slapped some people around.

I know Bernard Pierce is popular with the majority of the fans (and I like him, too); but, there's a reason why he's the complementary piece at halfback. He's not a starter, nor is he someone who can carry the load. He just gets way too banged-up to be trusted upon.

 

Depending on the situation with his injury (which he should be fine in time for the game against the Bengals), the Ravens are going to need to use Taliaferro and Forsett A LOT more, than originally expected, against Cincy and Pittsburgh.

I agree,he really stays hurt alot ,,first game cincy and if he gets his head rung again then what,,,

OMG! I switched to the Redskins post game show on CSN and they're laughing about the hit on Pierce and interviewing Merriweather like he's a hero. How classless.

i think we should keep Deonte thompson after all, as a trade bait, with the top 4 WRs are locked , camp and deonte will take the last 2 spots, if we keep 7 wr it will aiken, butler and aiken dont have lot of preseason tape for other teams to pluck them off waivers,
