Point Counterpoint: Breaking down Falcons D
Fri, 5 Oct 2012|
Z -- in Washington dot com. The Redskins will be hosting an undefeated Falcons this week at home the question remains can they upset Atlanta. I'm Jennifer Williams alongside. -- -- -- And rich Tim davis' point counterpoint before I get a final prediction from you guys let's talk about the Falcons one of the best pass defense is in the -- seventh I believe. How are the Redskins you know we heard RG three today. Talk about wanting to put up more points and put up more points early how are the Redskins going to be able to do that -- closer with you. You know I I honestly I I hate -- you -- a bad but I mean I I feel like just games and come onto the Redskins defense I mean. I was working RG three do you mean their average right now thirty something points a game. I mean to asked to score more points against a pretty decent -- and I -- there. Our Falcons are susceptible to go to the run there they're not that good in run defense. I think that any success the Redskins have is going to be out for Morse and maybe even -- RG three wouldn't see a whole lot of triple option last week. But he might see a return of that on this against the Dolphins. -- Yeah I mean I think I think to the Redskins are gonna have to run the ball I mean both. As that being their best way to me to move it. And keep the Atlanta offense off field you know that's -- it burn some clock time you deal nationally shortening game. We're on the clock and keep you know Matt Ryan Julio Jones and Roddy White Tony Gonzales can -- on the sidelines. And -- to going back to your point about offered Morris how much time do you think Ryan Grant Woolsey he said he is ready to go last week but I'll take an extra week. Howell how much should we recently in reasonably expect them to play. Well you know I talked to Ryan on today and he said he thinks he's gonna get more reps in practice said he was ready last week -- was told -- BA game time decision. And Dodd basically the team needed other players of the distance and use an active. But don't we talk to Mike Shanahan he didn't wanna commit to whether Ryan was gonna play on on Sunday. I have a feeling. Based on the fact of the Redskins have to run the ball to having success and he's going to be in the lineup. And that in other probably and Yzerman remember you know even though he is familiar with the zone blocking scheme it's still. A new York new terminology and a new our group of players he's got to get comfortable with but I think we're gonna see him play. I would say probably on third downs you know he's good -- pass -- And I have a question for both you guys you know maybe I'm not giving -- Redskins enough credit they. RG three did have seven targets vs the bucks how difficult is it for the Falcons defense that kind of you know plan ahead. For at that kind of keep that off that type of offense brits let's start. Well you know it's it's gonna happen. They're gonna see things to have seen before. We really don't -- I'm Pierre Garcon I think targeted twice caught one pass for twenty yards you know he's doing a lot more involved in the Falcons don't really now since he only played eight plays in the first game. Doctors don't really know how they're going to get him ball. You know again Leonard tankers and we'll see if if -- Robinson can now can can get in there. But you know these these are guys there you know they have a lot of weapons and -- one you know must Carson -- -- have one great receiver. But they have a lot of receivers -- to do a lot of things well in Atlanta lost their best cornerback early on. Brent Grimes tore his Achilles he's out for the season so you know terrorism is some honor billing him back field so. You know right wrist and see what happens and Falcons and see what happens to. -- Yeah you know I I think what we've seen so far in these first in his first quarter of the season is how diversified the Redskins offenses and you know it certainly is a big reason they're two and two. On the of the defense has not played that well I think part of the reason that they were able to get those two wins is because they're able to keep opposing defense off balance. On RG three can do so much you can do with his legs and do with his arms. Yeah we even saw you know might my personal favorite player last last game was when he tossed the ball to. Brandon Banks he gave right back too many hit dot it was a Fred Davis or or. Did not Niles Paul for for a bomb. A nice -- there I mean they just can do so much with a player of RG three skill on I think that's you know what's going to be the bread and butter for the team for the rest of season.
