First Quarter Impressions

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 30, 2011 – 4:40 pm

Who said punting wasn’t exciting?

Through the first three possessions of the game, the Redskins and Bills traded punts, with Australian phenom Sav Rocca landing three total inside the 20 (one negated by penalty) in the first quarter.

The international man of mystery is locked in today, and so is his coverage team.

Despite the Bills’ second drive ending in a touchdown, the Redskins are still doing one thing right: gang tackling.  Both near the line and down the field, the Redskins are swarming to the ball.  Unfortunately, the drive amounted to two big passing plays to receivers that had gotten open in the secondary.  Not sure what happened, but there were no burgundy hats in the area.

The score woke up the Redskins offense, who showed signs of life on the ensuing drive.  After a self-inflicted fumble on a scramble, quarterback John Beck took to the air, hitting Leonard Hankerson for a 23-yard gain.  This is the first catch of his young career, and a good rebound from the miscommunication that ended last week’s game.

Running back Ryan Torain looks good early, hitting the hole with conviction and fighting for the tough yards.  The Redskins don’t have anything to show for it in the first quarter, but all three units seem to be warming up as the game goes on.

Bills on top after one, 0-7.

    What an amazing display of offense by the Skins in the 1st quarter.. They look unstoppable. They are completely dominating on both sides of the ball.

    Interior defensive line is getting dominated.

    They need to get Coefield out of there. The Bills are doing whatever the hell they want to — it looks like a scrimmage. You’ll never see a worse secondary than Washington’s. LaRon Landry sure makes those big hits…20 yards downfield!

    I’ve never seen such a lifeless performance in Week 8 of a season.

    That was the most amazing 4 yards of offense that I’ve ever seen in 1 quarter. The Skins are taking care of business today!!!
