    Saw that earlier. Thats absolutely horrendous. What happened to the redskins. Used to be my favorite team before I gave up on the NFL.

    The funny part is they let the kicker get smoked...See if I offer to be a kicker for the redskins... with plays like that. They better draft or have 10 kickers on the team

    ISU has done some boneheaded things on the turf, but nothing like that. The whole crowd was booing and scratching their heads. Rock bottom is what they have reached.

    Re: Bonehead Washington play against the Giants

    I would have loved to be in that huddle...We're gonna send our O-line to the sideline leaving a center and a receiver to block, and then we'll send the kicker in motion...Seriously? What is this guy that they brought in specifically to call plays, and I think Jim Zorn could have thought of something better...like kicking a field goal!

    Re: Bonehead Washington play against the Giants

    They left their punter for dead!

    I love how they sent the kicker in motion! haha. I am sure the Giants were screaming, "someone get the kicker, man up on the kicker!!!" Instead they let him go over there and just killed the punter

    2nd worst part is that a FG makes it a 24-3 game and they scored the first series of the 2nd half! 24-10 with 10 minutes to play in the 3rd quarter wouldn't have been awful

    Redskins should be called the Foreskins....because they are about as useful

    Re: Bonehead Washington play against the Giants

    The play works but not in that situation. Usually it's a good play to get the other team to use a timeout. It also works if you throw it to a receiver and just let him run behind that massive wall that is set out there. Usually can get 5-10 yards on that play. However it's probably the worst call I have ever seen running it then and there with really no chance of it working at that point.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Bonehead Washington play against the Giants

    The only way that play would have worked in that situation is if the Giants would have forgotten to cover the center, who becomes an eligible receiver after the line shifts. Since he was covered pretty well, the punter had no real options there.

    It did at least work to get the Giants to take a timeout. Then after the timeout they went for it again. After Coughlin had time to tell his guys to kill the punter.

    Re: Bonehead Washington play against the Giants

    The fat bumbling fool that can't speak English from The Waterboy drew that play up...right?

    I mean if they had gotten to run it the first time, maybe. It's possible the element of "surprise" could have overrode the idiotic design.

    But to run it again? As someone said earlier, it looked like a call from a coach that knew he was toast either way and was just fooling around. And when asked about it in postgame, he just had a slight grin on his face.

    Odd.

    But didnt admit to it being silly. Said they just defended it well but it was a good play call.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Actually, that's the current speculation - that this was a gigantic F.U. to Redskins management. Word is management has been treating him in such a fashion in hopes that he'll just simply resign so they don't have to fire him and pay the large buyout. In this scenario drawing up such a ridiculous play would send management 2 messages - first, go **** yourself for how you've treated me this season, and go **** yourself for thinking I'm going to let you off the hook that easily by resigning.
