Game thoughts

Postby learnnew » Thu Aug 28, 2003 7:44 pm

At the end of the first quarter, Jags have rushed 37 yards in 7 carries (5.3 ypc) against our "first team" defense. Now Lavar, Trotter and many others (including Bruce Smith) are sitting out. Is it a matter of concern?

Also offensively we didn't do anything at all in 1st quarter (1 first down, 3 straight 3-and-outs). Coles and Gardner are sitting. Canidate didn't seem to play in the 1st quarter.

Is anyone catching the game on TV? I'm getting updates from nfl.com. How're we doing?

Jags-Skins 14-3 Half time.

Skins Stats - Offense: 6/11 for 43 yards passing, 11 carries for 41 yards rushing, Wuerffel sacked thrice (-31 yards). Only FG came out of a Jags fumble. 4 first downs (0 passing, 1 rushing and 3 penalties). Ramsey (1/3 for 3 yards, 1 INT negated because of Jags penalty).

Jags Offense: 9/14 for 86 yards passing, 10 carries for 56 yards rushing, sacks-2, 1 lost fumble.

(From nfl.com; But I think the rushing statistics is suspect 'cause it doesn't include Joe Smith's name. He is the one who got the 8 yd TD run for the 2nd TD and he had quite a few carries in that drive and before.)

Spl. teams has been solid: 4 punts for 44.0 yd average by Baker, solid kicks by Hall including 26 yd FG & good KO returns.

We score another FG!

1-10-WAS34 (10:46) D.Wuerffel pass to D.McCants to WAS 39 for 5 yards (C.Randall).
2-5-WAS39 (10:06) D.Wuerffel pass to Z.Flemister to JAX 44 for 17 yards (E.Westmoreland).
1-10-JAC44 (9:21) S.McCullough up the middle to JAX 40 for 4 yards (P.Spicer).
2-6-JAC42 (8:45) D.Wuerffel FUMBLES (Aborted) at JAX 40, and recovers at JAX 42. D.Wuerffel to JAX 42 for no gain (P.Spicer).
3-8-JAC42 (8:02) D.Wuerffel pass to T.Jacobs to JAX 20 for 22 yards (D.Young).
1-10-JAC20 (7:24) D.Wuerffel pass incomplete to C.Russell.
2-10-JAC20 (7:18) D.Wuerffel pass incomplete to Z.Flemister.
3-10-JAC20 (7:12) D.Wuerffel sacked at JAX 28 for -8 yards (M.Leonard). Penalty on WAS-A.Smith, Offensive Holding, declined.
4-18-JAC28 (6:51) J.Hall 46 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-M.Cecere, Holder-B.Barker

Looked like the drive was going great and then - Wuerffel was sacked for the 4th time. Oops! Jeez thanks John Hall, we're at least getting some FGs 'cause of you. Last year, we'd have punted it off and that prolly would've given worse field position for our defense!

How're our run defense, rushing (offense), penalties and overall discipline? Anything to be worried about? The numbers don't seem pretty there!
