The Redskins finally loosened their choke-hold on the Colts, allowing a field goal on defense and punting twice on offense.
Rex Grossman took over the reins at quarterback, and his best weapon was still Roy Helu. After looking a little tentative running last week, Helu looks decisive and is focused on turning up-field. He has 124 total yards from scrimmage through three quarters.
Once again, Sav Rocca hasn’t had an opportunity to show off his ability to “launch a real belter,” but he did hit his spots. On his first punt of the game, he landed a 37-yard punt at the 11 yard line, followed by a 52-yarder to reverse fields. He’s averaging 44.5 yards per punt, a good showing for the Aussie.
Chris Neild finished out the first half with an athletic play, making a tackle on running back Delone Carter in the open field. He talked last week about feeling overwhelmed last week, but showed good awareness out there. He has the luxury of learning from the linemen in front of him, and could develop into a solid run-stuffer.
The defense looks aggressive and seems to sniff out the play quickly. No big plays yet, and a good job of flowing to the ball.
