LOL - I still say - the starters aren't that bad - the scheme is way flawed. When the safeties are depended upon for BOTH run and pass support, and the linebackers are playing read and friggin react, there is a major problem in the defense.

What has been the key to most teams that have beaten us? Aggressive coordinators who attack the QB and the line of scrimmage. I agree we need D Line help - mostly in the form of a 350 pound tank that can demand double teams. Armstead isn't spent - he has 2.5 sacks and is third on the team with tackles.

Here is a telling stat - with the LB talent we have and there have only been 5 tackles for loss in six games between the three linebackers. I am telling ya Boss - it is more the scheme than anything....

Casserly/Beathard are sorely missed for sure. I'm not crying though....I think Snyder will kill himself with a brain aneurism if he doesn't take us to the promised land.

GM is needed I admit, however I'd rather have Snyder than the Glazers (Tampa). Even though they won they are gonna take the first train of profit out of town. That = gay.

We don't have one.

Snyder admittedly fired the wrong guy when he took over the team. Charlie Casserly should have stayed and Norv should have been booted. Charlie paid his dues - ate slept and dreamt Redskins - even slept at the local YMCA early when he couldn't afford a place of his own. He was taught by some of the best, ie Bobby Beathard and I wish we still had him.

Can we get Ritchie Pettibone back too.
