Comments Off on This Blog is Moving

No real big deal here, I’m just moving the blog to a spot on the Website for my book. You’ll be able to get there by clicking on Blogger is a nice, free application, but I need a little bit more out of my blog software, so I’m moving up.

It will be a slow transition. I’ll post on both for a while, then post links to the new site from here and then just post a permanent pointer on Blogger.

And, as always, you can catch both the blog, everything else I write about the Redskins, and lots more at the Website I am the editor for,

It’s a good group that comes here, hope to see you at the new home,

    One of the nice things about this site is the absence of Flash-based advertising contantly competing with the content and eating CPU cycles. The Blogger interface is easy on the eyes and the computer. I hope this won’t change at the new site.

    The only commercial mentions here will continue to be my book and I’ve thought about putting up the Google ads like you mentioned but the payoff isn’t worth the eye clutter.

    Good luck with the new site, Rich. I’ll be coming along for the ride.

    In the meantime, if you’re still even reading this page, I’ll give you a question to ponder: does the Skins’ D’s resurgence trace back to the anonymous comments that appeared in that infamous article?

    I remember specifically that the unnamed source–widely believed to be Archuleta–complained, among many other things, that the Skins’ safeties were being asked to defend against the run out of a cover-2. And ever since that article appeared, it seems the coverage has been much, much better. So I’d like to know: have the safeties been playing differently? Have they been allowed to play the pass in passing downs? Are they not trying to stop the run out of cover-2?

    Anyway, keep up the good work and I look forward to your new digs. And Joe, some browsers allow you to make Flash optional, so you have to click a button if you actually want it to display on a particular page.

    KT, the safeties are playing more of a traditional scheme rather than the cover 2 hybrid, but that’s not the difference in the defense. Since the Carolina game, they are tackling better. I think it’s really that simple. Safeties don’t have to support the run as much because the guys in front of them are making the stops.

    One of the things I notice about the D, is more swarming to the ball once it is in play. Tackling improves when more players get to the ball and help.

    On another note, this week I was not able to see the Skins play (and win!). I am glad to read about the win. Let’s see if they can put 2 games together and beat the Rams.

    Ouch, 579 yards of total offense by STL this week. That hurts. Again, if the D isn’t doing it’s part, the Skins have little chance to win. I was surprised (and pleased) that the offense was keeping the game close in the 4th quarter. However, it boiled down to stopping STL — especially in the OT period — and it didn’t get done. Injuries explain some of this, but not all of it.
