Final score was 47-3. The score pretty much says it all. The Skins were thrashed in every phase of the game and were thoroughly humiliated. In what was supposed to be a dress rehearsal for the starters for the season, they came out and got whipped. Now, I drank a fair amount and was distracted by a variety of things so I didn't pay close attention to the game so I can't really comment too much on individual performances but again, the score says it all. The offensive line apparently played poorly not giving JC much of an opportunity. Zorn called the QB play, "insignificant" which speaks volumes. The defense was missing tackles left and right giving up huge yards on the ground. All in all just a good ole fashion beat down.
I understand it is preseason and I also know that everything that could go wrong did so I know we are not as bad as that score. However, there is concern. Again, that was to be our dress rehearsal and we stunk it up. Based on that performance, I am curious if Zorn will have the starters play some in the final preseason game. Typically, starters won't play in that final game so they can rest for the season opener but things may change. I was just disappointed as a Redskin fan to see that debacle and we better get things corrected quickly.
On a positive note, the Jason Taylor injury which looked pretty bad when you watched it just turned out to be a sprain and he is supposed to be out for 10-14 days. That looked like it was going to be season (maybe even career) ending.
Hopefully we can use that beat down in our favor and use it to humble us and let us know that the season is upon us and it isn't going to get any easier. Now it's going to be very interesting to see how we play.
