Man, It’s Tough to Be a Redskin Fan!

Posted By Mercedes Green On Oct 24 2011 @ 10:11 am In Washington Redskins | 2 Comments

The Washington Redskins seem to have lost any momentum that they started the season with.  The defense did hold the Panthers to only 9 points in the first half, but they would manage 24 points in the second half.

The Redskins did have a running game going and a somewhat of a passing game, however, this ended when both Tim Hightower and Santana Moss were injured and taken out of the game.  Roy Helu and Ryan Torain only added a total of -6 yards running.  Fred Davis and Jabar Gaffney picked up some of the offensive slack with 148 yards and 1 TD to Fred Davis.  QB John Beck scored the first touchdown for the Redskins so at that time, he alone was the only player on the Redskins to score a touchdown in 7 quarters.

For the defense, they got 4 sacks on Newton in the first half, but none in the second.  They held the Panthers to only 9 FGs in the first half, yet allowed 24 points in the second half and 143 yards to Steve Smith alone.

John Beck actually threw more yards, but had 2 near interceptions in the first and 1 interception in the second half (although it wasn’t his fault).  With the ailing offensive line and injuries galore added from this game, I’m not sure what more Shanahan can do to help this team.
