Redskins Preseason Glorified Practice

Recommended Posts

Looking forward to seeing the first team offense tonight.  I don’t know if it’ll be one series, or any series at all.  Hopefully they’ll execute like they did last week.

After that, our depth guys will likely get killed by their depth guys, because reality.

Haskins will be fun to watch, Jay was hopeful after his debut last week.  Which went as expected - multiple picks.

Lap just said Westerman didn’t travel to the game and is pondering retirement.  Anyone feel like running down to PBS to play line?  Probably get yourself a tryout.

Another holding penalty, Dalton misses Eifert in the end zone, then has a typical batted-pass for a pick 6, comes off the field smiling and laughing.

I can't tell you how utterly sick I am of watching him play football.

My gosh football is not the same to me anymore. These penalties have to be the worst thing ever,  it's just not football to me.

Oh and as for Dalton, yea I'm getting a little bored of him as well. Not everything is his fault the o-line is trash, the penalties are even worse, but just bored of watching him.

The NFL definitely isn't.  And yeah I'm not pinning the state of this team on him,  the two bad throws were all on him though,  but he's not going to overcome 4-5 holding penalties the first two drives either.

Can I see more of this Finley guy, I love the way he moves up in the pocket when feeling  pressured and does not stand like a statue. Very interesting player

Has a bit of a noodle arm (accurate though),  but yeah stands in there well and keeps his head downfield without panicking, pretty impressive so far.

Finley 21 for 27, 2 TD's, 153 passing yards, less than 2 full quarters.  

Also Tate needs to make the roster and get more opps.

Hello All, it's been a very long time since I got in here. Now I know it's only preseason, but this team looks worse than Lewis Bengals! Horrible! And I haven't seen any improvement from the 1st game. Penalties, missed tackles, missed kicks....

Holy crap, our starting units looked bad.  Looking for improvement next week.  They sure as hell better improve in week 3 or it will be a tough year.

Bengals' win! 23-13.

Back-ups stole the show, Wynn, Willis with the rush, Ellis, Tate and Finley helped score 17 points I believe.

Starting unit was bloody awful.

I didn’t see the start of the game.   I think end of first quarter on except for 1 blown coverage Bengals looked dominant.

I don’t know what shakes out on the o-line but I’m glad they are getting reps to young players.  With today’s practice culture it’s hard to get them decent full go snaps.  

Really just take it at face value, glad they won.

Just the fact that Taylor is letting guys compete for jobs on the line is a huge step forward.  With Marvin (and Mike) if you were drafted fairly high, you played.  Billy Price getting relegated to backup would have never happened a couple years ago. It’s progress.

What I saw tonight was two bad football teams.  Sloppy play, missed throws and some really bad officiating.....

Really what did people expect, there top pick of the draft is gone, there best WR is out for awhile, there off-season was terrible they didn't bring anyone in that's a game changer. So it's pretty much the same shitty team with a new head coach.

I guess the thing that makes me mad is new head coach but same old problems. The penalties are ridiculous! With a bad team all the penalties need to stop or your just going to make it worse. So hopefully they find a way to stop that.

Oh and I really want to see Finley with the number 1 unit against a number 1 defense. I like what I have seen with him just want to see it with the number 1s.

True.  Billy Price would have started and gotten a handful of snaps last night if Marvin was here. 

Instead he’s running with the 2s and playing significant snaps.

Title of the thread says it all.  Glorified practice.  

First 2 games have not been needle movers at all.    Finely looks like a competent dink and dunk qb thus far.  Can his confidence grow the next two games to start chucking them down field?

Don't think he needs to necessarily, but yeah can't remember a single deep sideline or post route he threw in either game.  Throws a catchable ball, but gotta wonder about arm strength leading NFL WR's (no idea how good he is at that, am guessing not great).

I love what we’ve seen from Finley and his accuracy has been phenomenal. That being said, I’m going to need more than two games against back ups to move the needle much more.

Absolutely would not surprise me to them draft a QB high next year.

I don't think anyone's saying he's a future starter yet,  and I'd certainly expect them to draft a franchise QB next year if the right one is there.  Driskell has had some nice preseason games too.  But they used a 4th rounder on him,  Taylor's a former QB, etc.., As long as Finley is playing well, can't complain.  We'll see what happens I guess, be it this year or next.
