CSN Washington dot com. Everybody welcomed the Redskins -- brought you by The Washington Times. I'm Brian -- and CSN Washington dot com along with the times rich Campbell and before we look forward the Giants let's look back -- the Patriots. They can they're competitive against a team that leads their division has a great quarterback but it was breakdowns back captains that cost again. Yeah you start by looking at DeAngelo Hall throwing a flag is is a temper tantrum then that's that's just can't happen Santana Moss with the push and often pass interference. He goes on a rant after the game about the officiating only for a day later his head coach said it was the right calls that looks terrible then of course you're one of the biggest plays in the game. Left tackle Willie Smith breaks down -- up a sack fumble the reason he's in there to Begin with this because. One of their captain suspended for drugs. -- -- and you left me the biggest one DeAngelo Hall quit on a play he should have been benched. He should eventually threw the flag I think that's a lack of accountability and you gotta wonder everybody talks about character and poise I think this team is lacking right now I just look at the kinds of penalties are committing. They'll also Patriots. Back on last place has seasons look ahead of the Giants and scratch and it's added this team beat that team a week one no talk no you -- -- With the most of these from the Giants -- Well I think it's always going to be their front seven on defense even if they're banged up again and you mean you are in -- might not play. Think the Redskins are gonna have a really hard time running the ball on them and that's -- their success and this offensive resurgence the last three weeks has come from running the ball we heard Rex Grossman. Talk about it earlier today. Play action start to work against them because they've established the run well. This back you know bunch of backups on the offensive line are going to be able to run against their front seven. And I don't have a big problem protecting the passer -- looks like the Giants Astros just. Get in gear even know they had lost four straight forward and at Dallas did the Giants are at seven and six. But -- 32 rush offense is that how is that a sign of they don't run it or is that a sign Eli is playing his best. The problem a little bit about I know they had some injuries Ahman Bradshaw had a foot injury -- the -- is a broken foot for a little while and you know you see the emergence of Victor Cruz that's been a help to them and team -- is playing well so. I mean a lot of times soon he's had to come back late in games of the thrown a whole lot if they fall behind you're gonna get away from the runs it's probably a combination of things but really surprising to see that because there was such a great running team. Let's go. To discipline for -- Richard Bradshaw he was late for a meeting in Dallas sat out the first half of the game they had to have. You know mess of Tom Coughlin -- the rest his office -- -- in the running game. Their I don't think they've turned the corner because they did this to run out of bodies but defense where there -- a lot healthier. I just don't see a lot of sudden change plays being made one turnover. No -- one -- Lester gets. And that's what they needed against Tom Brady and the Patriots so when you look at a game like that when you know Tom Brady in that offense is gonna make a ton of big plays how. How are you gonna answer when they didn't answer Orakpo and care -- quiet. They had one interception was a great play at the end of the game by Josh Wilson even that he could have been called for a defense of holding penalty got a handful Jersey on that cut. And we mentioned -- another one of their playmakers is making negative plays it's a problem they need big plays sudden change kind of play. Chase Daniel what you mentioned Kerrigan Iraq the Patriots weren't exactly running back protection so us four against five they couldn't beat their match. Secondary I should just -- get that first interception OJ Atogwe did not play until the fourth quarter. I think DJ Gomes is your guy next year right. I think so too and you talk to coaches that there. And much higher on Gomes projection than what Atogwe is now -- weighs thirty years old his body start to break dancing with the ending knee injury this year. Not explosive at all DJ Gomes has been very good fit in the run and they like the way he's progressed. It it makes a lot of sense to go with them the question is you know. -- play strong safety so is he gonna take -- spot they gonna have to decide what to do with LeBron. Well think he'll be back either -- he looks like he's too good a good these days -- you look -- his next destination Redskins play at the Giants 1 o'clock on Sunday.
