    I love early cupcake games. It allows confidence to build and to fine tune some things.

    Didn't he go up against Kerrigan last Sunday?

    He also got some wheels. I’ll always remember him getting upfield keeping pace and throwing that DB down in the Packers game.

    How many people said we weren't very good pass-blocking team. I know Limon want to play Smash Mouth they want to blast off the line hit those Defenders. I think we got a squad that can actually do both. I can't wait to play a good team a little bit more aggressive on defense not just sit back and play prevent. Go Cowboys

    Yep. Pretty much whooped him. If memory serves I think he gave up one sack when Dak rolled out of the pocket to his side and Kerrigan peeled off him to make the play.

    They were a bad pass blocking team last year. Now they flipped they are better at pass blocking and worse in run blocking this year as a group.

    I think they are still getting used to Fred being back and Williams. Once they gel. Im hoping by the GB game. I think that line will be elite at both. at that point. I start thinking superbowl, mainly because I think our defense will be coming together by then too.

    I think it's wishful thinking for the defense tbh. Go look up major defensive categories and see where we are.

    That I believe was on Conner Williams, he slipped, allowed Payne to slip through, and forced him to his right, right into Kerrigan. It wasn't that Kerrigan beat him, Dak was forced into him.
    Nate Newton was talking about this on the post game show.

    Still give the Redskins credit though, they did what they were supposed to do.

    He has made some nice improvements at RT each year.
    2017 was a trial by fire going up against some stud rushers.
    2018 he looked better and seemed to be more at home against the speed rushers
    2019 is a small sample size but he looks to have continued to improve

    Thanks for clarifying. I couldn't recall who exactly it was against.

    I have. And while we arent very good right now. I remember that last season we put out basically the same defense and it was tops in most important categories. They will come together. I trust Richard. Rod not so much. If the DL keeps getting manhandled I see him out the door and Richard being moved up and allowed to do what he wants. We have the pieces. I expect a lot more LB blitzes being dialed up in the coming weeks. This is the same defense that dominated the highest scoring team in the league last year.

    He was always great and I am thankul he received a contract. A Brown and B Jones are overdue for an extension as well. A lot of fans are drama queens that over inflate emotions like the Kardashians on a Jerry Springer episode.

    I was all for letting him walk after this season. I didn't think he was terrible, but I figured he would be more expensive than he was worth. He has definitely played better this season IMO and is living up to the money they gave him.

    And then what happened our defense got smashed in the playoffs. So basically Dak has to play perfect ball for our defense to be successful. That is a terrible gameplan

    Agreed. I think it will all come together. I would be running to the Jets with a 1st and a 3rd and begging for Jamal Adams. Solves a lot of problems on this defense.

    While I like Jamal Adams as well. If quinn doesn't ball we are going to be in big trouble on this d line. again

    I think Quinn makes Dlaw's life a lot easier. As long as Collins keeps up his work. Makes life easier on Jaylon and LVE too. And so on and so forth.

    He has steadily improved every season and he hasn’t even peaked yet...
