I was watching the game and telling my wife "Get ready for the onside kick!" This was at the beginning of the 4th qtr after DC completed the 2 point conversion.

If you are a coach and you know that your defense can not stop the other team, why not take a few chances and kick the onside kick a few times? you just may get the ball back. Regardless of where the skins got the ball, our defense was not going to stop them.

My other complaint was, if you are going to throw a bomb for grabs in the inzone, why not throw it towards AJ (best receiver on the team) or Moulds (second best receiver on the team) At least these guys would not let that last pass get intercepted, AJ is great at batting the pass down before it gets Intercepted!

I also saw them change to a 3-4 scheme to stop that outside screen and stuff the run what seemed to work which they only did a few times, why not stick to what works? Our defense has never been this bad EVER!

I knew they were coming with the run, you knew it, and the coaches knew what was coming and they still could not stop it. I do not think the 4-3 is suited for that outside screen and hint, why other teams are switch over to the 3-4! Its like the skins watched the tape between us and philly and followed the same gameplay, very predictable, we were getting pancaked everywhere on the field.

Sucks, just when the offense is starting to look good, they cant even get on the field nearly as much as they did last year!
