Beginning back in summer in the training camp, the members of Redskin’s defense expressed a wish to be dominant.
“Be Somebody Bad”, where the thought Jonathan Allen came up with. “Simple like that.”
And as long as in 2018 they have been – as long as their opponents can not consistently hit them through the air.
One year after ending as NFL’s worst-ranked rifle defense, Washington did everything he could to make sure there’s no repetition this time.
Therefore, “Skins elaborated Daron Payne and Tim Settle, redefined Zach Brown and Mason Foster and eagerly awaited Allen’s return. And together, the group has recovered very well, as they are currently checking in as the fifth best stop station.
I One week 5 meeting with the castle and gold, Ezekiel Elliott had one of his worst achievements, going for just 33 meters. Christian McCaffrey and Saquon Barkley failed to top 40 meters on the ground. In week 1
, David Johnson was ineffective.
Not surprisingly ended these efforts in profits for Jay Gruden’s squad and they became all famous as they should have been.
But there is also a common link between them: None of the running backs were part of crimes that contained dangerous , united passenger attacks.
Certainly, McCaffrey is looking for talented Cam Newton, but Newton’s best recipient is, as it turns out, McCaffrey. Barkley, like another For example, sharing the field with external threats Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard, but the guy who throws them the ball is a shell of a shell by himself.
But when the Red Skins have been commissioned to stop a star QB and dynamic passers, the result has been ugly.
In New Orleans, Drew Brees finished 89 percent of their 363 meter passes on Washington D and threw three points. This past week, Matt Ryan raised 350 meters for four TD on Greg Manusky’s side.
Both matches resulted in 24-point losses.
Even in the leather second loss this season Andrew Luck and TY Hilton could connect when they needed, especially late. While their numbers are not as crazy as the results against Brees or Ryan, the point is still that Washington is wrong with the best passenger attacks.
So does team statistics. The red rays are ninth in points and, as already noted, the top five at the limiting RB. But they are only 20 in pass yards allowed per match and 22nd opponents match rating per game.
Now there’s reason to hope things get better in the second half.
The Ha Clinton-Dix’s add-ons should make the secondary deeper as long as he can get comfortable quickly. Ryan Kerrigan is heating, meanwhile, and maybe Preston Smith can also increase the pressure on the opposite signal caller.
They still have dates with opponents who have similar styles as those already taken. Titans, Texans and Jags are ranked in the bottom half when it comes to moving the ball with the passport and rounds with the cowboys and giants as well. Lots of potential gains are out there.
And finally, Redskins are of course not the only ones having trouble holding down QB, picking between a series of dynamic goals on each game. In-depth analysis: it’s hard to do it.
But if this version of Redskin’s defense wants to raise the franchise to the playoffs and fight there, they must avoid burglary like those with the Saints and Falcons.  A solid defense can look strong one week against less competition, but the elite defense can shut down anyone. Redskins has not shown the latter ability yet. MORE REDSKINS NEWS
