Yes the coaching staff sucked tonight, but we are a decent QB away from being a contender.
I know Brissett played a good game tonight, for the most part. But he's no Andrew Luck, who just gave this team something else and overall, we were a much much better team with him.
Brissett ain't all bad, but he's limiting this team and limiting the coaching staffs ability to use the whole playbook.
We went from playoff team to near the bottom of the AFC South with the change from Luck to Brissett and that won't change as long Brissett is our QB.
Right now, our best hope is to loose out and get a higher draft pick and hope Redskins don't win more games, so we can summon enough draft capital to get one of those top QB's in the next draft.
Reich and the staff is very good, but they to are limited with Brissett.
CB has to do something big this off season, if not, we are dead last in the afc south next season.
Not buying the injury stuff. Sure it's an impact, but.....
1) D play calling was horrible. Everyone knows Winston can pick soft zones apart, especially when he steps outside of the pocket. We should have seen more man today. And why we didn't blitz more vs a QB that has been sacked almost the most in the NFL is beyond me. He was without his staring RG, and his LT went out during the game. And we only get ONE sack?
2) Our passing game was up and down and didn't do anything when it mattered late. Sorry, but we need more than two TDs in the air when:
a) you're playing the 2nd worst passing D in the league
b) you playing the 2 best rushing D
c) you're playing a team who is top 5 in both points and passing
And again, plenty of open guys missed, and several bad passes in key moments. The throw behind Doyle near the end, and the "front" shoulder pass to Pascal late were awful. Same sheet, different game.
