1st quarter review here.
Washington Redskins continued.
2-8-50 (15:00) J.Campbell pass short right to F.Davis to WAS 49 for -1 yards (J.Parker; C.Gocong).
DE realized immediately realized that Davis was only blocking him for show to set up a screen, so he stayed back and wrapped Davis up as soon as he caught the ball.
3-9-WAS 49 (14:14) (Shotgun) J.Campbell pass short left to D.Thomas to PHI 39 for 12 yards (Q.Demps).
1-10-PHI 39 (13:38) R.Cartwright left end to PHI 32 for 7 yards (W.Witherspoon).
2-3-PHI 32 (13:00) R.Cartwright up the middle to PHI 31 for 1 yard (J.Trotter).
Draw play. Sellers is lined up at RTE and is supposed to take out the MLB Trotter but doesn't get there in time.
3-2-PHI 31 (12:18) J.Campbell pass deep right to M.Kelly ran ob at PHI 4 for 27 yards.
1-4-PHI 4 (11:52) J.Campbell pass incomplete short middle to F.Davis.
2-4-PHI 4 (11:46) J.Campbell pass short left to S.Moss for 4 yards, TOUCHDOWN.
Kelly is at split end and Moss is in the slot. The CB over Kelly is playing outside leverage to keep from giving up the easy fade. The DB over Moss is also playing outside because otherwise Moss would easily beat him to the flat for a free touchdown. When they both run slants, the secondary has to adjust. Moss' DB jumps outside to cut off Kelly's slant. This obviously leaves Santana open. A LB tries to come over to disrupt Santana, but he's too slow because Campbell knows where he's going as soon as he sees where the DBs line up and gets the ball out immediately.
S.Suisham extra point is GOOD, Center-E.Albright, Holder-H.Smith.
WAS 14 PHI 10, 13 plays, 80 yards, 6:04 drive, 3:16 elapsed
S.Suisham kicks 70 yards from WAS 30 to end zone, Touchback. WAS-J.Jarmon was injured during the play. His return is Questionable.
Philadelphia Eagles at 11:44
1-10-PHI 20 (11:44) D.McNabb pass incomplete deep left to J.Maclin.
PENALTY on PHI-W.Justice, Offensive Holding, 10 yards, enforced at PHI 20 - No Play.
McNabb halts the rush with two fake handoffs on a Statue of Liberty play (really). Maclin has about four steps on Smoot and Landry, but McNabb underthrows it and Maclin is forced to slow up enough for Landry to hit him as the ball arrives.
1-20-PHI 10 (11:36) (Shotgun) D.McNabb pass short middle to L.McCoy to PHI 10 for no gain (R.Doughty).
PENALTY on PHI-J.Jackson, Ineligible Downfield Pass, 5 yards, enforced at PHI 10 - No Play.
Carter penetrates on a inside stunt but is exploited by a designed shovel pass. Redskins get bailed out by penalties twice in a row.
1-25-PHI 5 (11:13) (Shotgun) D.McNabb pass short right to B.Celek to PHI 14 for 9 yards (R.Doughty).
2-16-PHI 14 (10:38) (Shotgun) D.McNabb sacked at PHI 13 for -1 yards (A.Carter).
Pressure is generated by Orakpo bullrushing the LT and Daniels (at DT) beating the RG. McNabb steps up to avoid it, but runs into Andre Carter who slipped inside from LDE to take advantage of Daniels' penetration.
3-17-PHI 13 (10:04) (Shotgun) D.McNabb pass incomplete short right to L.McCoy (P.Daniels).
Philip Daniels beats the RG again and deflects McNabb's pass.
4-17-PHI 13 (9:59) S.Rocca punts 42 yards to WAS 45, Center-J.Dorenbos, out of bounds.
PENALTY on PHI-E.Buckley, Personal Foul, 15 yards, enforced at WAS 45.
Eldrick Bunkley kicks Chris Wilson in the face while running downfield on punt coverage. No question that this was 100% deliberate. I'm happy to take the 15 yards, but how was he not ejected?
Washington Redskins at 9:50
1-10-PHI 40 (9:50) R.Cartwright left tackle to PHI 39 for 1 yard (W.Witherspoon; Q.Mikell).
Sellers leads from FB but doesn't get a very solid block on LB Witherspoon, who sheds off him and makes the tackle.
2-9-PHI 39 (9:26) (Shotgun) J.Campbell pass incomplete short left to A.Randle El (B.Bunkley).
DE Trent Cole fights through Levi Jones' outside shoulder to force Campbell to step up into the pocket. Campbell has tons of open field in front of him and could easily run for the first down, but instead tries to dump it off to Randle-El in the flat and it gets deflected by the DT.
3-9-PHI 39 (9:22) (Shotgun) J.Campbell pass incomplete short middle to M.Sellers (Q.Demps).
Sellers and Ranldle-El line up in either slot and each run crossing routes into the same spot, so somebody screwed up their route. Naturally this draws three defenders into the middle of the field and the throw never has a chance.
4-9-PHI 39 (9:12) H.Smith punts 28 yards to PHI 11, Center-E.Albright, fair catch by D.Jackson.
Philadelphia Eagles at 9:12
1-10-PHI 11 (9:12) (Shotgun) L.McCoy up the middle to PHI 18 for 7 yards (L.Fletcher).
RG-RT douible team drives Daniels (at DT) to the inside and RTE seals Carter outside to keep the hole open. Fletcher initially bites on the counter action which is why he's slow getting over and only makes the stop after a significant gain.
2-3-PHI 18 (8:47) L.McCoy left end to PHI 17 for -1 yards (K.Golston).
LT pulls to the outside, leaving a TE to fight for the corner against Chris Wilson. Wilson wins this battle, and Tryon fights through the slot receiver's block, so the corner is denied. He cuts it back inside, but Golston has evaded a cut block and is there to make the stop.
3-4-PHI 17 (8:08) (Shotgun) D.McNabb pass short right to L.McCoy to PHI 22 for 5 yards (B.Orakpo).
1-10-PHI 22 (7:30) (Shotgun) L.Weaver right guard to PHI 26 for 4 yards (C.Wilson).
2-6-PHI 26 (6:58) (Shotgun) D.McNabb pass deep middle to J.Avant to PHI 44 for 18 yards (L.Landry)
Redskins blitz two DBs and pay for it.
1-10-PHI 44 (6:18) D.McNabb pass short right to J.Maclin to WAS 49 for 7 yards (R.McIntosh).
2-3-WAS 49 (5:42) L.McCoy up the middle to WAS 49 for no gain (L.Fletcher).
Golston overpowers the C and makes the stop with Fletcher.
3-3-WAS 49 (5:04) (Shotgun) D.McNabb pass incomplete short middle to L.McCoy.
4-3-WAS 49 (5:00) S.Rocca punts 36 yards to WAS 13, Center-J.Dorenbos, fair catch by A.Randle El.
Washington Redskins at 4:52
1-10-WAS 13 (4:52) M.Mason right tackle to WAS 19 for 6 yards (W.Witherspoon).
Heyer drives the LDE outisde while Dockery squares up a LB and Mason follows behind him.
2-4-WAS 19 (4:18) M.Mason left end to WAS 34 for 15 yards (S.Jones).
PENALTY on WAS-M.Sellers, Offensive Holding, 9 yards, enforced at WAS 19 - No Play.
A pretty questionable holding call on Sellers. He opens up the hole from LTE, then Mason runs behind Edwin Williams and Dockery who each get serious drive blocks on LBs.
2-13-WAS 10 (3:51) J.Campbell pass short left to M.Mason to WAS 21 for 11 yards (S.Brown; S.Jones).
3-2-WAS 21 (3:11) (Shotgun) J.Campbell pass short right intended for S.Moss INTERCEPTED by A.Samuel at WAS 21. A.Samuel to WAS 21
for no gain (S.Moss).
Santana is covered by a LB, so on the surface this doesn't look like that bad a decision. Asante Samuel isn't even on camera when Campbell throws and then comes out of nowhere to make the pick. I haven't exactly shied away from criticizing Campbell lately, but upon review this just looks like an exceptional play by Samuel. Samuels completely abandons Randle-El to jump the pass to Santana. Had this been a pump fake, Samuel would have been responsible for an easy 79 yard touchdown.
Philadelphia Eagles at 3:04
1-10-WAS 21 (3:04) (Shotgun) L.McCoy up the middle to WAS 13 for 8 yards (L.Fletcher).
This should have been an even bigger gain. The C had a free shot at Fletcher and either the C didn't hustle enough to get to him or McCoy wasn't patient enough to wait for the block. End result is that McCoy runs past the C and straight into Fletcher's arms.
2-2-WAS 13 (2:27) (Shotgun) L.McCoy left guard to WAS 10 for 3 yards (L.Fletcher). R9
1-10-WAS 10 (2:00) D.McNabb pass incomplete short right to J.Maclin (F.Smoot).
Smoot's all over the quick slant. 2008 convinced me that Smoot was washed up, but contrary to my expectations he's played very well this year.
2-10-WAS 10 (1:57) D.McNabb pass short middle to J.Avant to WAS 5 for 5 yards (L.Fletcher).
3-5-WAS 5 (1:17) (Shotgun) PENALTY on PHI-W.Justice, False Start, 5 yards, enforced at WAS 5 - No Play.
3-10-WAS 10 (1:15) (Shotgun) D.McNabb pass short right to J.Maclin to WAS 6 for 4 yards (J.Tryon).
Timeout #1 by WAS at 00:52.
Three man rush so we could flood all the short zones. As soon as Maclin catches the ball in the flat seven Redskins defenders swarm him. Yes, I counted.
4-6-WAS 6 (:52) D.Akers 24 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-J.Dorenbos, Holder-S.Rocca.
WAS 14 PHI 13, 6 plays, 15 yards, 2:15 drive, 14:11 elapsed
D.Akers kicks 70 yards from PHI 30 to WAS 0. D.Thomas to WAS 35 for 35 yards (S.Jones).
Washington Redskins at 0:49, (1st play from scrimmage 0:42)
1-10-WAS 35 (:42) (Shotgun) PENALTY on WAS-L.Jones, False Start, 5 yards, enforced at WAS 35 - No Play.
1-15-WAS 30 (:41) (Shotgun) J.Campbell pass short left to R.Cartwright pushed ob at WAS 40 for 10 yards (T.White).
2-5-WAS 40 (:35) (Shotgun) J.Campbell pass short left to D.Thomas to WAS 37 for -3 yards (S.Brown).
Timeout #2 by WAS at 00:28.
A weak attempt at a screen. Fred Davis is at LTE and is supposed to pick off the DB who lines up over Thomas but can't get there on time and Thomas never stands a chance.
3-8-WAS 37 (:28) (Shotgun) J.Campbell pass short right intended for D.Thomas INTERCEPTED by A.Samuel [T.Cole] at WAS 45. A.Samuel
to WAS 28 for 17 yards (D.Thomas).
Trent Cole embarasses Levi Jones and gets to Campbell's blind side almost untouched, but Campbell makes the throw just in time. This throw is somewhat dicier than the last pick because Devin Thomas is well covered, but as Zorn pointed out in the post-game news conference Samuel allows Moss to run free downfield to jump Thomas' route. Next time Campbell plays the Eagles, I hope he remembers to pump fake and punish this guy for his aggressiveness.
Philadelphia Eagles at 0:19
1-10-WAS 28 (:19) (Shotgun) D.McNabb pass short right to L.McCoy to WAS 23 for 5 yards (R.Doughty).
Timeout #1 by PHI at 00:12.
2-5-WAS 23 (:12) (Shotgun) D.McNabb pass incomplete deep left to A.Smith.
Timeout #3 by WAS at 00:07.
3-5-WAS 23 (:07) D.Akers 41 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-J.Dorenbos, Holder-S.Rocca.
WAS 14 PHI 16, 3 plays, 5 yards, 0:16 drive, 14:57 elapsed
D.Akers kicks 24 yards from PHI 30 to WAS 46. L.Holmes (didn't try to advance) to WAS 46 for no gain (T.White).
Washington Redskins at 0:03, (1st play from scrimmage 0:00)
1-10-WAS 46 (:00) (Shotgun) J.Campbell sacked at WAS 36 for -10 yards (T.Cole).
Trent Cole again blows by Levi Jones and Campbell never has a chance. Rock Cartwright probably should have seen what was happening and chipped Cole on the way into his pass route.
