Dear Washington Redskins,
You guys are a great team. I’ve loved you since I was born, but there are a few points I have to get across with you guys, and I think some of these will help y’all out a bit.
Quarterbacks. Oh boy… I know Kirk Cousins may be a little more experienced than Colt McCoy, but I remember one year that RG3 was prone to injury–what seemed like–every week, Kirk Cousins had about as many interceptions than TD passes, and Colt McCoy was the only one who could win games for us. He even led us to a win over the Cowboys… IN DALLAS! I understand the defense needs more work with allowing less points, but if the offense can’t score, it puts a lot more pressure on the defense. We have a ton of weapons out wide with Terrelle Pryor, Josh Doctson, and Jamison Crowder, but we can’t utilize those weapons without a quarterback that can get the ball to them. I’m not hating on Kirk at all, but this is just something that came to my mind.
Another issue I have is play calling. This is going to be a pretty small topic, but this is something I have to tell you guys. I remember one game a couple of years ago, we were down inside the 5 yard line, first down, a great running back (I forgot his name), Skins down by about 5 points, and you throw 3 straight back shoulder fades to the back of the end zone that were incomplete. Next play, 4th down, another pass, incomplete, turnover on downs, game over, Redskins lose. This is something that can cost us games. We have the defense on their heels, in a great spot to potentially win the game, but… we get too predictable by throwing 4 straight passes, and we end up loosing. We need to be creative with play calling in crunch time situations when it really counts, but I haven’t seen that from y’all lately.
These are some ideas that have been sitting in my head for long enough, and these ideas, I’m pretty sure, will help y’all out a lot late in the game or late in the season.
