Can anyone help me understand why we continue to give opposing receivers free releases off the line of scrimmage? Our corners our almost always 7-10 yards off the line of scrimmage at the snap.
The Redskins "west cost" offense is based on timing, so if you are bringing pressure forcing the QB to get rid of the ball quickly, why not also take the receivers off of their routes and confuse the timing for the QB.
Newman and Jones are supposed to be really fast so why are they worried about getting blown by? As for Henry, he is not so fast but he should be able to do what Springs and Harris did to T.O.. be physical and keep to guy from running by him.
It just looks to me like we are constantly in the prevent defense in the secondary, we play scared, worried about getting beat deep instead of aggressive like Baltimore.
That said, the whole team got pushed around yesterday...we looked soft, the Giants running backs are probably licking their chops.
