Poll: Who wins, Redskins vs. Giants?

Sep 25, 2016, 11:40 AM EDT

    Giants by plus 4

    Giants: 27
    Redskins: 23

    The Giants dominate the Skins all game and the only reason it is close because the Skins score 10 points in the 4th during garbage time.

    What the actual hell, Dunbar???

    • snyderisanidiot - Sep 25, 2016 at 4:37 PM

      Dunbar showed promise last season and it was a smart decision to keep the play-maker around. I hope they sign Quinton Dunbar to an extension. He is a great backup CB.

      • Trey Gregory - Sep 25, 2016 at 9:40 PM

        Sometimes bringing hugged guys in off the bench provides that spark needed. It’s pretty undeniable that the secondary got better once Blackmon and Dunbar came in.

        I’m fine with it if they want to try Dunbar in the slot. But I still think Breeland is the second best corner on this team. Hopefully the injury isn’t too bad. It could be a blessing in disguise if he misses just a week or so. I think Breeland’s issues have mostly been mental. Maybe a short break will help get his confidence back. We have some decesions to make at FS and along the O-line though. I think we need to find a free agent for maybe safety (even if just a backup) and along the OLine. If Kory keeps starting, we have to dress another Olinemen in the game. We can’t have Trent Williams playing LG. It’s better to sign free agents and get them in the system now than wait for another injury and have them start learning week 8.

          Hungry* guys off the bench

        • COSSkinsFan - Sep 26, 2016 at 12:09 AM

          Agreed, at the same time and yes I understand the financial factors, left tackles are paid top dollar to protect the blindside but our makeshift oline opened up bigger running lanes. I would be happy to see Nsekhe at Lt and Williams at LG because I think it puts our best 5 of oline man out there. I still feel that Blackmon has been overrated as a CB, but he seems to always be around turnovers. I think he may help us at fs because of that.

        • Trey Gregory - Sep 26, 2016 at 1:06 AM

          Let me start with Blackmon, I couldn’t agree more that he was overrated last year. He was fantastic in the context of a guy we found off the street already into the season. But there’s a different expectation when we go through an offseason where we can sign or draft new talent and he’s still on the roster after camp competition. He truly didn’t play THAT well last year. But he’s at a new position and, hey, we haven’t been getting very good play from it anyway. Maybe he can add a spark. This defense will give up yards regardless. Turnovers is what will make them into an acceptable defense from a bad one.

          I can’t agree about Williams though. I get you’re point, I don’t necessarily agree that those are our best 5 offensive linemen, but let’s say that’s correct. Trent Williams is still, by far, the best tackle on the team. And tackles are significantly more important than guards. We would be devaluing the overall offense by doing that. It would be like the Panthers putting Cam in at RB because Stewart gets hurt and Cam is a better RB than Fozzy Whittaker and the backup QB (Anderson?) is decent. QB is still more important and it would be a crazy move.

          I think we started running so much because the line couldn’t hold up in pass protection. Ty is good I’m a pinch but I don’t want him going against good edge rushers every snap of every game. That’s scary.

      • Jimmy kubas - Sep 25, 2016 at 11:26 PM

        Dunbar seems to play well when coming in on short notice… I’m glad we kept him even tho he had a rough preseason… Skins played with a lot of heart and fight today… Wasn’t a pretty win.but a win….maybe this win gets us on track…httr!!

        • Trey Gregory - Sep 25, 2016 at 11:49 PM

          That’s one of the many reasons why you can’t take the preseason too serious with both positive and negative things. The guys are rusty, they’re not watching tape, they try new things, don’t run the true system. all kinds of stuff.

          Dunbar is a converted WR in only his second year ever playing CB. He’s going to take more time to develop into his full potential. As in, years. And he will take his lumps in the meantime. But he’s a hungry and passionate player. He’s built to play zone and he’s aggressive enough to get by in man. The stage doesn’t seem too big, he has a nose for big plays, and he costs nothing. That’s the kind of guy to keep around and develop.

          This defense is not going to suddenly get good anytime soon. Unless we infuse $200 million into it like the Giants did. It will continue to be a “bend but don’t break” defense. They can do their part to win by making a couple stops in the redzone and getting turnovers. That’s a realistic goal for this defense. Make them punt once or twice, make them kick a field goal once or twice, and get one or two turnovers. The lean our on alleged strength in the offense. We will win some games despite giving up a lot of yards and some points if we can do that.

    Bree land carted off?!

  4. ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© - Sep 25, 2016 at 2:42 PM

    bangkokben, you can officially add me to the list of people who think this team is badly coached.

    • Manny Whiteaker - Sep 25, 2016 at 2:54 PM

      Yes, the defense is embarrassing right now.. I’m really tired of seeing Bruton on the field

    • bangkokben - Sep 25, 2016 at 7:51 PM

      It’s quite a list.

      • Greed - Sep 25, 2016 at 10:06 PM

        I’m been leading the list for 2 seasons & 3 games

  5. ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© - Sep 25, 2016 at 3:46 PM

    I am back to say some more about Dunbar.

    1) He was pushed on that punt turnover, but he also shouldn’t have been going any near the ball.

    2) He sure has redeemed himself in the 2nd half!!!!!!

  6. skinsgame - Sep 25, 2016 at 4:04 PM

    The defense has played better since Hall and Breeland exited. Hopefully both of them are ok but hopefully the coaches make moves as well.

  7. snyderisanidiot - Sep 25, 2016 at 4:31 PM

    YEAH!!!!!!!! Gutsy Win. Its a big time Win for this Redskins team. I thought they were gunna choke for sure. Gotta give it to them. Well played.

    • Trey Gregory - Sep 25, 2016 at 9:45 PM

      I gotta give it to the young players. Because we tried to give that game away many, many times. But our young guys made plays. They weren’t perfect, but they stepped up in big moments. Think about what that game would have looked like without Dunbar, Cravens, Crowder, and Jones (am I forgetting anyone?). Get Doctson healthy and up to speed and we will have a great yong corps of guys along with a few others who could have had better games today, but weren’t awful.

  8. ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© - Sep 25, 2016 at 4:31 PM

    Thank the FSM I don’t have to spend the week pissed off whenever I think about football, which is far too much already.

  9. snyderisanidiot - Sep 25, 2016 at 6:44 PM

    The Eagles were blowing the Steelers out by so much they just cut the game of the Air and switched to a different game. lmao.. Fly Eagles, Fly.

    • bangkokben - Sep 25, 2016 at 7:50 PM

      Phuck Filly or something like that.

      • brucefan1 - Sep 25, 2016 at 8:25 PM

        Actually it was the Steelers who took a dry hump. (Maybe that got a little reach around too, so they can at least say got a li’l sumpen-sumpen outta the deal!)

        • Trey Gregory - Sep 25, 2016 at 9:01 PM

          The Steelers were surprisingly awful. But people were sleeping on that team all offseason when they shouldn’t have been. That D is for real and Wentz is starting to look like he’s the real deal too. Philly looks like the best team in the division right now. We don’t have the luxury of Chip Kelly destroying that team anymore.

  10. Greed - Sep 25, 2016 at 10:14 PM

    A win like this can really sling shot a teams confidence & momentum , hopefully it will for us! Not worried about other teams in our division at this point I’ll concentrate on our play come November I’ll be really checking out the other teams as they get further into their schedules & start facing injuries and adversaries will tell the true make up of their teams as well as ours

    • Trey Gregory - Sep 25, 2016 at 11:56 PM

      Hopefully they don’t sleep on the Browns. If not the. They should be 2-2 going into week 5. That’s going to be a tough but winnable game. So they could be 3-2 heading into the most winnable stretch remaining on the schedule (it stops at the Vikings). Wins will be very difficult after that. I’m truly just praying for 8-8 right now. What they do the next 5 weeks will basically determine that.

      • bangkokben - Sep 26, 2016 at 12:00 AM

        Cards and Panthers are still tough teams but may be right around .500 when we play them.

        • Trey Gregory - Sep 26, 2016 at 12:12 AM

          That would be awesome. I personally don’t see it happening. But if Cousins ever gets it together then anything is possible.

          I think one of the toughest games of the season could be Minnesota. And I’m getting a bad feeling about that Eagles team. It’s mostly their defense. Both Minnesota and Philly have very physical defenses.

  11. Jimmy kubas - Sep 25, 2016 at 11:19 PM

    I think Dunbar plays better when forced into playing because of injury or no other choice.. He balled today… Made up for mistake on punt..Cravens need to play more…I would give Fuller some time also.. Good job today redskins… Played with a lot of heart and fight today… Hail!!!! Archives
