Washington’s defense falters in loss at Green Bay

AP

Here’s the good news for Washington: Mike Shanahan’s club will be no more than a game out of first place in the NFC East after the Eagles and Cowboys lost on Sunday.

On the other hand, the Redskins have looked vulnerable on their way to an 0-2 start.

The Packers rolled up 580 yards in a 38-20 victory against Washington on Sunday. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw for 480 yards and four touchdowns, completing 34-of-42 passes in the process. Receivers James Jones and Randall Cobb both exceeded 100 yards receiving, and Jordy Nelson caught a pair of TD passes.

Washington also struggled with Green Bay’s running game. James Starks gained 132 yards on 20 carries, becoming the first Packers runner to exceed 100 yards on the ground in nearly three years.

Washington’s offense turned in a better performance than the defense, but it did not score a point until the third quarter. By then, the Packers were well-ahead.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III played well-enough in his second game back from a knee injury, throwing for 320 yards and three scores. Running back Alfred Morris exceeded 100 yards on the ground, and receiver Pierre Garcon caught eight passes for 143 yards and a score.

Washington’s offense hasn’t perhaps hit its best stride just yet, but it is capable of keeping the team in games, especially if it can get warmed up a little earlier in the weeks to come. However, Washington has now surrendered 1,023 yards in two games. That’s problematic, to say the least.

  1. What a vendetta the league crooks have against the Redskins. From unfairly taking our cap money, to allowing their flagship player/Quarterback in RGIII get hit late to trying to change our historic name. Why won’t Roger Goodell just publically announce his hatred for Dan Snyder and his excellent, innovative way of running a team? We can’t compete if the powers at be have already decided they don’t want the Redskins to compete in anyway. Don’t even play the games if you already have your predetermined favorite. #TheRedskinsarebeingtreatedUnfairly

  2. We’re still going to the playoffs and winning the division. I am not phased. We are the most resiliant group in football and no matter what powers may want us to fail, God’s Team will always prevail. #TheRedskinsarewinningtheNFCEast

  3. Did you actually watch the game? Only reason the redskins’ offense has that many yards is because the packers d just stopped caring

  4. There isn’t a debate. RGIII’s knee isn’t near 100%. There were 5-7 plays that a healthy Griffin would have taken off on bit instead he looked for a shallow route to dump the ball off to. He was a pocket passer and looked uncomfortable when the pocket collapsed.

  5. I am willing to publically (sic) announce my hatred for Dan Snyder. Will that help?
    I agree with you 100% Logicalvoiceesays; the 4skins should forfeit all the rest of their games as a protest against. I don’t see how they are going to win the division if they forfeit though. Perhaps divine intervention. That big Bigot in the sky will change the rules.
    At least ‘Jerrah’ does not whine constantly like you 4skins. Maybe because he has an actual football team instead of one divine Messiah and 52 other guys.

  6. Does the staff here even watch these games? RGIII played “well enough” and then points to this inflated stat line he had. RGIII and the offense did nothing until it was like 31-0 and then started piling up all these passing numbers. Second week in a row skins have done nothing and then padded the numbers after getting down big. And still no one is able to see the major difference between this years team and last years. Skins CANT run the triple option like they did last year. Bob’s knee won’t hold up to that. So now you see a more conventional style offense being used and Bob has to become a pocket passer. Which he is struggling to do. His accuracy is average at best. This team is in trouble and the schedule doesn’t get any easier. Might go from division champs last year to bottom of the barrel. Wish some of these writers would stop dragging this attitude about Bob and the Skins that it’s just going to take some warm up time for this team to get going and the offense played well. They are warmed up and the offense played like crap, AGAIN. Just looked decent because of garbage stats after being down big.

    True. And no they don’t watch the games. They are to busy using cut and paste to produce posts.

  8. Why does anyone give @logicalvoicesays any attention whatsoever. It’s apparent he’s totally delusional! Please pay him no attention as he has absolutely no clue!

  9. Second week in a row that the offense opposing Washington chose to be merciful and pull their punches in the second half – how pathetic…

  10. Skins suck. Last year logical blamed the league and refs, again he says it’s biased. Lol
    Your qb isn’t healthy. Your defense isn’t conditioned

  11. Robert Griffin Junior the Third is the most overrated player in football. Enjoy a 6-10 season Redskins! Go ahead and blame it all on RGJR3’s injury.

  12. Wow, a GB story up for more than 20 minutes and no Mini trolls have shown up! I wonder why that is? And was that a nearly empty bandwagon I just saw roll past?

  13. Hahaha!

    Packers owned the Deadskins today! So much for the Packers being afraid!

    Love seeing lame excuses by logicalvoicesays! Facts mean nothing to him, he just continues to grasp at straws,

  14. We were 3-6 before winning division last year folks! Wouldn’t count them out just yet!! Not saying they will repeat success of last year but I’m not betting against them!! Nobody else in division seems ready to take it from us!! I’m all in..!!! HTTR

  15. This team is done. Pretty soon Snyder will start meddling with the team, RG3-13 will start undermining the Shananigans, Dr.Andrews will start making excuses for RG3-13, and the Shananigans will start CTAs more so than before. Welcome to the NFC circus!

  16. REDSKINS fans are in a state of shock. Shock and awe. I saw Shanahan in his post game conference and he looked like he was in an artillery attack. Shell shocked and awed. Perhaps the REDSKINS will not win a game this season?

    ….. and no matter what powers may want us to fail, God’s Team will always prevail.

    ———————————————————–

    I can understand your confusion in this matter — after all, Vince Lombardi *did* coach the Redskins at the end of his career.

    But it does take a lot of nerve to suggest that Vince favors or has anointed the Redskins.

  18. Really? Logicalvoice, Conspiracy? How about just overhyped, you ran your mouth and your team is 0-2. The defense is horrible, and Dan Snyder, Mike Shanahan, and RG3 are not as good as you pray for. Now you want to ma ke excuses and you honetsly think your defense is going to stop N.Y. and Dallas? Many of us would respect your opinion if you were honest with yourself. #In_Denial

  19. redskins fans your team has some nice young talent, imo they will get better and be a contender in the next couple of years. keep your head up, signed a packers fan.

  20. The final score was also inaccurate. That last touchdown by Moss was NOT a touchdown. He did not have full possession of the ball when hos first foot came down. That was a joke. This game was a blowout from the very beginning. Redskins were never in it.

    The stats for Washington were about just as misconceiving as the vikings final record last year.

  21. where are all the viking’s fans that usually troll on packer’s post’s? 0-2 must have them curled up shaking naked in the fetal! all that crying in Minnesota might flood the Mississippi…

  22. logicalvoice can’t be serious. No one is really that delusional.

    On a side note, I was laughing about the nepotism in the nfl when they showed Shanny’s son talking to RGIII. Be happy that Shanny will be gone after this season. Perhaps RGIII can get some real coaching at that point.

  23. It a shame that Snyder , has been stealing-money from these Logicalvoice-fools for years.

    It’s a bigger shame, they drink the kool-aide,and lose all sense-of-reality.

    “Instant Karma”

    Instant Karma’s gonna get you
    Gonna knock you right on the head
    You better get yourself together
    Pretty soon you’re gonna be dead
    What in the world you thinking of

  24. Washington sports teams let too many people outside the organization manage the club. First the Nationals blow a rare opportunity to punch a ticket to a World Series. They had mauled SF all season but they blow a Game 7 NLDS lead to the Cardinals, which they may not have needed had they not made history by benching their top-ranked pitcher for the postseason.

    Now they world — the fans — the press — are in the Redskins heads about how to play RGIII.

    They’ll be lucky to win 6 games this year.

  25. Say what you want about Logicalvoices,

    I give it to him to be the first to post after a loss.

    I don’t agree with much of what he says, but at least he doesn’t run and hide.

  27. Yeah, I agree, that is why I said I don’t agree with much of what he says.

    The only thing is that he doesn’t hide.

    I’ve seen too many posters only post when their team is winning.

    Pack looked good oh thats right they weren’t playing the 9ers who have beaten them 3 times in 1 yr
    ______________________________

    Yeah, the 9ers beat GB the last 3 times. I don’t see where that matters much in considering this weeks game. And, at least be realistic about last weeks game. The 9ers had to play their best game, at home, to beat the packers last week. I think it is time for the other teams that have to play GB this season to start figuring out how to stop them. The Packers put up points and are playing tough. Don’t try to disguise your fear, it doen’t work as it is obvious when people post like you just did, that they are afraid of GB again this season.

  30. I have absolutely NO rooting interest in this game, and I do not wish the team playing in our country’s seat of government, however I am wondering if poster logicalvoice writes for ” The Onion?”

  31. We stank today, no other way to put it. Shanahan has to put serious thought into whether Haslett is retained. His defenses have rarely played well and today’s performance wasn’t even worthy of a good high school teams.

  32. We are still the best team, because I am delusional and think by being a blowhard on websites that people will care what I have to say. My mom’s basement does not smell moldy- I know, I live there.

    i don’t expect dan snyder would know how to type. thus, the only alternative is that this poster is some paid hack that dan has on one of his payrolls. no sane person else ever constructed a sentence of “Dan Snyder and his excellent, innovative way of running a team” unless they were on the payroll.

    i guess the innovation comes in never having a season where you aren’t paying a couple former coaches. Mark my words, when the current administration flames out (could be soon with little napoleon’s legendary lack of patience) i expect to see vinny cerrato back in the saddle….

  34. While the defense obviously has issues, (we already knew that) it was the dropped passes of skill position players that I took away from this game. Reminiscent of last year’s Steelers game, the Redskins offense would be their own worst enemy due to drops ceasing drives and any momentum. It is worth noting, RGIII is obviously still trying to figure things out. He rarely runs now. Forcing him to be a pocket passer. And while, last year RGIII proved early on he can keep up with the frantic NFL pace. The new (knee brace) RGIII seems to miss that frantic pace, because it may have been the most common method for him to make positive things happen consistently. When teams slowed down RGIII’s pace last season he looked truly hindered. This year, RGIII’s own joint is his biggest enemy, because of all the scrambling ability it strips him of. Although, I anticipate this year to be rough for ‘Skins fans, it could be a blessing in disguise. Once RGIII fully heals and gets more comfortable, this year or two of being “forced” to stay in the pocket could create a monster of a quarterback that can mesh 4.4 speed, and true pocket QB skills.

  35. Hahahahahhaaha gotta love that even in a victory to another team it’s the same packer losers who wonder what vikings fans are up to. What’s with the love affair guys? For Vikings on your mind 24/7? Don’t try to deny it.

  36. I am not sure what all this talk about a drum is, however the Washington Football team is so bad they cannot beat O-F-F (yes, there is a bug spray called OFF)

  37. Logical –

    What the heck did you think would happen with you give away all your draft picks (aka FUTURE) for a single player (RG3). You got what you wanted – an entertaining QB but NO DEFENSE.

    You asked for it, and now you have it. Reap what you sow.

  38. It would be so bad if Logicalvoicesays didn’t spend the previous week predicting not only a win but a blow out. Its one thing to be wrong, its another to be so wrong that you look like an idiot.

    But we are used to idiots in the NFC North, we have to deal with the Viking trolls on a regular basis.

  39. “excellent, innovative way of running a team”

    Really??? I mean REALLY? What innovation? When in doubt, fire the coach. How many has Little Danny been through now? Oh, and by all means, be sure and have a field that is such a piece of garbage that the player you’ve bet you’re team’s future on blows out a knee. That’s a great innovation. Trade premium draft picks for over the hill players or sign fat malcontents to ridiculous contracts. That is the definition of incredible innovation. Be sure and initiate fees at training camp that rip off your fans. That’s an important innovation. Buy up local media outlets and fire any of the on-air talent that might criticize you. That’s a great innovation. And, of course, sue the pants off any grocery store give away newspaper that might have the audacity to point out what egomaniacal d-bag you are. Everyone already knew it, but few would have read the article but for Snyder’s suit. Got to admit, no one else does quite like Little Danny “The Innovator” Snyder.

  40. I in no way like the Redskins. I am a fan of a division rival but I will be the last person to stick a fork in any team after only 2 games. ANY team, including this skins team can turn it around. For anyone to say, “well at least they are only a game out” is foolish. We are two games into the same, most teams are only a game out. The concern comes from how this team is looking. I think that report about Dr. Andrews being concerned with the way Bob was being used was accurate. I think the doc was basically saying, if you guys want to continue using this player and run the read option 20 times a game, then this player will have a 3 year career. So with 2 games down we’ve seen the coaches here take that advice and basically cut the read option play out. Down the road we could see the coaches bring that play back in the way they were using it that last half of the season last year. If that happens this offense could improve. But Bob’s knee has been blown out twice now. The doc is concerned with that. The knee will only continue to blow out until this kid has no career. The Skins were a fluke last year in a sense. They had one offensive play they absolutely dominated everyone with, the read option. To use that play, or to not use that play, that is the question. And there season will be determined by that answer.

  41. Jeez, the RedTails are even worse than I thought they were. They can’t even score a point, or move the ball, until the other team is up by 3-4 TouchDowns and goes into a Prevent defense because the game is over!!!

    Oh well, at least you can use the first Pick in the Draft on a Decent QB! Oh wait … I almost forgot, you traded that pick for your current Piece of Crap QB! Guess you’re Dorked for a while, at least you’re used to it as you haven’t won anything in over 20 years! And probably never will with Snyder calling the shots and Lameahan running the team! Those Spawns of Satan have NO CHANCE in God’s League!! Sorry IllogicalVoice!

  42. It is early in the season and a lot of teams are showing their warts. Problem is RG3 is perceived as the solution-the fix all to all that ails them. That occurred last year and DC righted itself. However in his present physical state, Griffin is incapable in covering all of Washington’s defensive issues this year. The secondary is borderline worthless and for two straight weeks the defensive line play is pathetic. If Grandma Moses had been a running back that line would be incapable of stopping her. Detroit may give them a break especially if Reggie Bush is out. However, Megatron is another matter. Face it Washington is not very good.

  43. Just as a reminder:

    Logicalvoicesays,
    Season Record for the Redskins : 14-2
    RGIII : 43 TDs Passing – 7 INTs – 8 Rushing TDs
    Morris : 1756 yds, 10 TDs
    Garcon : 105 receptions, 15 TDs, 1345 yds recieving
    Kerrigan : 16 sacks, 7 FFs, 2 INTs
    RGIII NFL MVP.
    Redskins 4th Superbowl.

    Guess we’re about to see one hell of winning streak here…. lol

    @logicalvoicesays

    Your childish antics make it so fun to watch that team that plays in DC lose.

    Now it’s the refs fault because RG3 got hit late??? What about the no calls on Meriweather?? Which I guarantee he’s losing some of his next game check for if not the whole thing.

    Ironically, he got his due didn’t he?

  45. i will never understand why people pay any attention to logicalvoice. he is clearly a troll and probably isnt even really a redskins fan. literally everything he says is to get a reaction out of all of you, and it works.
