Redskins @ Giants – Fourth Quarter Thoughts

Posted by Matt Terl on September 13, 2009 – 7:40 pm

The Redskins started this one behind and never seemed to find their feet. All those ALMOSTs I talked about in the first quarter added up to something that the team never managed to overcome. For example, at the end of the first half, the Giants had held the ball 10:36 longer than the Redskins. The differential in the second half was notably smaller — under three minutes — but still tilted in the Giants favor.

All of the best things I saw from the Redskins offense came during the two-minute drills at the end of both halves. The team moved with tempo, as Zorn is fond of discussing. Jason Campbell made decisions quickly during the two-minute drills, got rid of the ball (including the improvisation on the toss to Ladell Betts), and scored both their touchdowns at the end of such drives. In the two touchdown drives, Campbell went 9-for-11 for 123 yards (with a 16 yard rush) and one touchdown.

Redskins @ Giants – Third Quarter Thoughts

Posted by Matt Terl on September 13, 2009 – 6:41 pm

What I kept thinking about during that third quarter was something that Giants blogger GiantsGab wrote on Twitter earlier in the game:

@GiantsGab: campbell fumbles, tosses it to betts, and they get a big gain. somehow, that always happens

I think we can all agree that this does not actually “always” happen. In fact, at that point in the game, the Redskins hadn’t scored at all and the offense had barely been on the field, at least effectively. But that’s how we see it as fans, I think. Read more »

Redskins @ Giants – Second Quarter Thoughts

Posted by Matt Terl on September 13, 2009 – 5:56 pm

Well, the Redskins are only trailing by ten. That, and the fact that Hunter Smith is — as near as anyone can make out — the first Redskins punter to rush for a touchdown, are about the only good things to take from that quarter.

The flipside to the ALMOSTs of my first quarter thoughts is that for every good thing that happens, there’s been a negative to it. Heck, the very first play of the quarter was the Redskins defense stopping the Giants on fourth-and-1 at their own 3-yard line. That would seem, on the surface, to be nothing but good … except there was Albert Haynesworth, lying immobile at the bottom of the pile. Not what you want to see. Read more »

Redskins @ Giants – First Quarter Thoughts

Posted by Matt Terl on September 13, 2009 – 4:46 pm

The opening drive wasn’t great. Some of the things that have frustrated fans of this team for the last few years were on clear display:

  • the defense had a chance to force the three-and-out, but let the Giants stay on the field
  • Carlos Rogers dropped what looked like a sure interception
  • the defense wound up on the field for a fairly long (7:19) drive

But here’s the thing: the Giants only came away with three points. That may not seem like much, but a repeat of last year’s opening-drive march downfield would’ve felt simply disastrous. Being able to stuff the Giants on third-and-1, even given that Brandon Jacobs wasn’t the ballcarrier, has to rank as almost a success. Read more »

Redskins @ Giants – The Pregame Parking Lot

Posted by Matt Terl on September 13, 2009 – 3:50 pm

Despite the egalitarian nature of the puffy guys behind the customized H2 above, the parking lots of Giants Stadium are enormously, aggressively blue. There are Redskins fans, but they seem to be greatly scattered, just random single fans with big groups of Giants fans.

In my circuit around the parking lot — which, I’ll admit, was somewhat briefer than it would’ve been if I hadn’t been wearing a Redskins polo shirt and Redskins credential — I spotted only one all-Redskins tailgate, the three Taylor siblings down from Connecticut. Read more »

Redskins @ Giants – Redskins Inactives

Posted by Matt Terl on September 13, 2009 – 2:57 pm

Here are the Redskins inactives for this game:

  • RB Marcus Mason
  • CB Kevin Barnes
  • OL Edwin Williams
  • LB Robert Henson
  • OL Chad Rinehart
  • OL D’Anthony Batiste
  • DT Anthony Montgomery
  • DE Renaldo Wynn

The two that are the most surprising would be Montgomery and Wynn, but this is the (sort of) downside to having all your players healthy: you just have to pick guys to be inactive. Jeremy Jarmon has impressed me in practice for the last week, and I guess he also impressed some much more important people as well.

Mason is inactive, which will disappoint some people, but Marko Mitchell will be playing and available, so hopefully that eases the sting somewhat for those who hope to see the preseason heroes excel.

No emergency third quarterback this week as there is no third quarterback on the 53-man roster. Antwaan Randle El will fill that role in the exceedingly unfortunate event that it’s necessary.

Just over an hour until kickoff — WUSA-9’s Sara Walsh just observed that you couldn’t ask for a more beautiful day for football — and the special teams players are on the field in full pads warming up. 4:15 can’t come soon enough.

Sunday, September 13: Finally, Time For Some Football

Posted by Matt Terl on September 13, 2009 – 11:52 am

It’s a much sunnier day in New Jersey today, and it’s finally time for the games that count. We all know the questions by this point:

  • Can Jason Campbell finally silence the doubters and critics?
  • Can the offensive line finally silence the doubters and critics?
  • Can the second-year wide receivers prove that they belong in the NFL?
  • Can Albert Haynesworth improve the entire defense enough to quiet the people who think he was only playing for a contract?

And so on and so forth, all up and down the roster. Noticing a trend in these questions? There’s a reason this Redskins team is being called the projected “best last-place team in the NFL” by the Associated Press.

Anyhow, we’ll finally start getting some answers today, hopefully quieting that “last-place” talk for good.

I’m getting ready to head over to the stadium; follow on the Twackle module after the jump for Twitter updates from me (@redskinsblog), Gary Fitzgerald (@redskinsdotcom), and Larry Weisman (@LarryWeisman). Read more »
