Another week, another string of serious methods for the crime at Redskins Park.
Last week, the goal was to get Colt McCoy ready for Monday Night Football in Philadelphia with a playoff spot on the line. And then disaster struck again at the quarterback position when McCoy broke his fibula in the first quarter. Enter Mark Sanchez, Redskins quarterback in about two weeks, which now finds himself leading a team that is right in the playoff hunt.
Despite a three-player slide and a general sense of depression surrounding the team, Redskins is all but the playoffs. They are half a game back from the wild card site, and a game back from the division title.
They only need to plot the leaks (damage everywhere) on crime, get their defense in shape and they will be back in this case.
And it is a fact that is not lost on Sanchez, which was partly due to his experience in the playoffs. In 2009, the jets started the season season 4-6 but ended the season by winning five of their last six matches and unlocking the wildcard slot.
Sanchez took the team to the AFC Championship game where they lost the one-seeded (and Peyton Manning-led) Colts. He hopes to give the 201
8 Redskins team a similar end to seasonality, starting with training this week. Sanchez stressed that 10-6 is possible, but it starts to work out.
“Let’s just execute, see what’s happening, have fun on this exercise, let’s finish this review, let’s go through this exercise, let’s get that up. Let’s see what’s happening,” said Sanchez to reporters at Wednesday’s press conference. “You will be better for it, I know I can actually promise those guys. I can not promise them playoffs, but I can promise them to be happy, think back, win or lose, hi man, I gave all on Wednesday, so that’s the kind of where I’m on. “ One of the most important parts of the practice this week will be to learn the timing of his passengers’ routes. The horror told reporters on Thursday that getting Sanchez comfortable with how some players drive their preferred routes will take some work from both parties. 19659002] “There are some expectations we are going through right now and it is expected, but I think we will be on Sunday, we will have a pretty good grip,” says Gruden. ” But their job is to drive the routes we call the right depth, which comes out of the right breakpoint, right coverage, knowing zone, and it’s quarterback’s job to get them. “
For Sanchez, learn when Jordan Reed looks for the ball on a double-stick or when Chris Thompson expects the passport to come to him on a swing route will be the focal point of the crime preparation for the giants.
” You know , it’s fun that you hear a lot of the old coaching arrangements and guys talk about driving some routes and in my mind I think how I & # 39; I’ve seen this guy run a route or anything and I’m just reminded that you do not drive the line on the side, you’re driving the route, “said Sanchez. “These guys will drive their stretches, they will get their shades and it will be up to us to get a few extra reps here and there.”
Reed, security field on and off the field, has taken extra steps to help Sanchez become comfortable in crime. Reed said during the training team, he and Sanchez went out on the page to accelerate their connection. Having a fitting free kick in the tight end position is a big advantage for a quarterback playing with a limited playbook.
“I’m just trying to give him confidence that I can win for him,” says Reed. “Whenever he throws the ball, I’ll try to catch it. I will not tell him that the ball must be here. He has a pitch on his plate so I’ll just go out and do the best I can do.”
Article number one on the Sanchez plate teaches the crime. The horror told reporters during a conference call Tuesday that only about 20 percent of the playbook was available to Sanchez, who worked on a bracelet on his bracelet.
“I think you probably need to be a bit more simplified in your attitude, but you can still challenge the defense in different ways,” said Gruden. “I think driving the ball will be the key of course and some game actions that make him out of pocket can be very beneficial and then the recurring concepts we have will be things he is comfortable with. “
The easiest answer to Determining a crime led by your third start quarter is to run the ball, as the Gruden mentioned, but
Brandon Scherff and Shawn Lauvao are both on IR, after which Tony Bergström and Jonathan Cooper began to wake up. Cooper is now on IR and Bergstrom has not been able to train after leaving Monday’s game with a foot injury. In addition, the starting center Chase Roullier has failed to practice due to knee injuries. Washington is working for the presence those with a gaping hole on the inside of their offensive line, one that is now three players wide.
Veteran tackles Trent Williams and Morgan Moses has sustained their own damage every year, but they are the last (currently) standing. If the driving game can not materialize, Washington may have to lean on short passages to tight ends, jumps and card recipients. Fortunately, that list only sees Redskin’s crime.
Thompson, the third best recipient back in 2017 per Pro Football Focus, told reporters that he has worked with Sanchez to find routes that they both like.
“Just let him know what I think and what I look forward to on some of my ways and things,” said Thompson. “We drive all our ways differently and things like that. We actually had a game in practice today, where I just just let him know what I’m planning to do if we get a certain look from the defense of the giants, things like that. This is where our communication has to be quite a lot throughout the week. “
Thompson had five goals and caught three of them for 18 meters. Getting him more involved in the giants could be a sure way to get some production in the appropriate game. No matter, Thompson said the team is ready and willing to help Sanchez to run the offensive in his first start as a Redskin.
“If he gets stuck on something, we can help him and that’s what we know we can do for a while or two,” said Thompson. “Mark, he’s A smart guy and I had to see a bit of it in the meeting room today too. He will get together, he will be prepared. “
