Redskins vs. Packers Preseason: 2nd quarter scoring summary

Redskins vs. Packers Preseason: 2nd quarter scoring summary”

After an utterly ineffectual performance in last week's preseason opener, Washington Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said he meant to play his starting offense Saturday against Green Bay long enough to develop a rhythm.

"Right now, for this game, we're going to start with Mason and Zach - Mason at Mike and Zach at Mo (position) - and after that we'll see what happens, see how they perform and go from there", Gruden said. "They played man behind it, so no one was there for me". "But we have to get him taught up and let him play".

"Whatever Dom calls, that's what we run". In the first quarter, he rushed more than four players on every pass attempt but one. One with linebacker Joe Thomas in coverage and the other with safety Jermaine Whitehead.

"I am thankful the Packers did some of this for the team", said Wayne Kinjerski, father of East High School's quarterback. "I think it's been pretty standard, and I know it's a big subject nowadays, but he hasn't changed the way he presents it to us or anything".

"If you have to change your message, what were you doing in the first place?" he said Tuesday afternoon from a shaded bench after practice at Ray Nitschke Field.

"That was something new for me to actually do".

In 2014, Capers came up with a 4-3 look he wanted to spring on the Seahawks in a season opener in Seattle. The Packers outplayed the Philadelphia Eagles 24-9 all thanks to Trevor Davis' performance-level play after returning a 69-yard punt return for a score and the defense forcing a total of four turnovers.

With three preseason games remaining, there is still plenty of time for observation from the Redskins coaches. But he's still going to work on some things.

This year, Capers, who has a revamped secondary that has many new pieces and moving parts, has decided he needs the live action to test out his plan. But by any measure, the passing game that carried the Redskins to last season's 8-7-1 finish is far from polished with just three weeks remaining before the September 10 opener.

As for tipping his hand, Capers isn't anxious about that. Pearson, who was Hill's teammate at BYU, suffered an ankle injury earlier in training camp. Even with it, however, there's still much to question about the way the bunch is playing, and Week 1 of the regular season is only getting closer. Of course, in fairness the two teams have only played one game in the preseason.

It's very likely Capers won't blitz almost as often as he did against the Eagles once the regular season rolls around.

The running game is in trouble, too. "Ultimately, it just took unfortunately a few losses and some self-reflecting to realize how good of a team we really had".
