RG3 not cleared to play Ravens

After clearing RG3 to play on Thursday, the Redskins have said that RG3 isn’t cleared to play.

It looks like the Redskins have learned their lesson for once.

The Redskins have said that RG3 is not cleared to play tonight against the Ravens. Kirk Cousins will be the starter tonight, and according to some sources, he could also be the Redskins Week One starter against the Dolphins.

Griffin is being held out after suffering concussion-like symptoms after taking a massive beating from the Lions during last week’s game. He will receiver another examination next week to see if he is able to play. It’s wise for the Redskins to be keeping RG3 on the shelf right now. Like I said in my last article, the Redskins are trying to salvage the QB that they’ve traded away an arm and a leg for and they shouldn’t risk him behind a terrible offensive line in a meaningless game.

Of course, knowing the Redskins, they’ll find a way to mess this up later in the season. But one can hope.

Surveying the Enemy: Q&A With Hogs Haven

With this week’s ‘Battle of the Beltway’ shaping up to be a good one, it’s key to look into the happenings of our rival.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

- Sun Tzu, The Art of War

The great Sun Tzu’s famous saying still holds true today, even in the world of football. Planning and learning about your enemy (the opposing team) is so crucial in preparation for that week’s battle (game). That’s why we here at the Beatdown like to correspond with our fellow SBNation blogs each week. This week, I talked to Alex Rowsey of Hogs Haven. Alex was very knowledgeable about all things Redskins and his comprehensive answers to my questions blew my own answers to his questions out of the water. Special thanks to Alex and all of the folks over at Hogs Haven.

So without further ado, I present this week’s Surveying the Enemy’.

#1: How big of a blow is Junior Galette’s injury to the team?

This is a tough question to answer.  On the surface it’s easy, this is a huge blow.  Junior Galette is an elite pass rusher and obviously would have been a huge part of our defense and team.  We know our secondary isn’t great, so really improving the front seven and getting after the QB is going to be how the Redskins improve as a defense.  While the front seven will still be good and much improved over last year, it won’t be as good as it would have been.  Galette added something that no one else on our roster has.  He had elite speed/burst/explosion.  Of all the pass rushers on our roster (Ryan Kerrigan included), Galette is the only one who has consistently been giving Trent Williams trouble in practice and actually beating him sometimes.  We’re talking about a guy with 22 sacks in the last two season.  That’s crazy good.  He would have made Ryan Kerrigan much better on the other side and obviously aided our secondary.  While not excellent against the run, he is terrifying in passing situations.

The reason I said the question isn’t all that easy to answer is because I still feel our team has great talent and depth at the OLB spot.  Junior hasn’t been a Redskin but for a few weeks.  He wasn’t part of the original plan coming into camp and most fans were very happy/satisfied with our defense before he was added.  So now we’re just back to where we were before he came here.  Everyone was and still is very excited to watch the development of last year’s second round pick Trent Murphy.  Trent may have even started games over Galette when Galette was healthy because Trent has already proven to be excellent against the run.  He’s much bigger/stronger coming into his second year and he led the NCAA in sacks two years ago, so there’s excitement over what he can do.  Make no mistake about it, he doesn’t have the explosion/burst/speed that Galette does, but he could still become a very good player.  We also spent our second round pick this year on the position in the form of Preston Smith.  He’s looked very good in the preseason games so far and will get plenty of PT.  That’s two second round picks with a lot of talent and potential who will now have to step up and people around here have high hopes for those guys.  That excitement and potential helps to alleviate the pain felt by losing Junior Galette.  On a final note, we’re pretty excited about a couple of guys, Jackson Jeffcoat and Houston Bates, who have been on the bubble at the OLB position.  The loss of Galette this year improves their chances and they have some exciting potential as fourth or fifth OLBs.

2.) What has the general consensus around Brandon Scherff been so far? Was he worth the pick?

There is no consensus on the Scherff pick.  It’s been fairly divided though I’d still say a majority of fans are pretty happy about it.  Redskins fans love OL.  I mean, our site is called Hogs Haven because of the great “Hogs” OL that led our team to three Super Bowl victories.  We love to run the ball and have a big, bruising, awesome OL that makes it possible to have a successful offense regardless of the skill positions.  So prior to the draft, everyone was all about getting an OL.  But there are a few reasons for the divide in our fan-base with regards to Scherff.

For one thing, he came into camp as our starting RT after playing LT in college.  After a couple of weeks, he’s been moved to RG.  That worries a lot of people.  Many draft pundits were already saying how Scherff will be a G in the league and a lot of people didn’t want to see us spend the #5 overall pick on a guy who was going to play G.  Well that’s where Scherff is.  Will he stay there?  I don’t know.  But if he does, plenty of fans are convinced he can’t be worthy of that high of a draft pick.

Another thing is the simple fact that Leonard Williams was available when we selected Scherff.  Plenty of fans wanted Scherff all along, but most agreed that Williams was the one guy we’d really have to take if he was available.  He was.  We passed.  Some fans aren’t happy about that.  It doesn’t help when we see/read that he’s been looking pretty good in the preseason.

Finally, and this is silly in my opinion, but to give you an honest look at how our fan-base feels, people are down on Scherff a little more this week because he really struggled last Thursday against Detroit.  It’s his second quarter of preseason action in the NFL and he’s on this third OL position in the past two years, so I’m not worried about it.  But some fans are.  It’d be nice to see him come out, play solid, and hold his own against you guys on Saturday.  It’ll be a big test for him.

#3: Being a ‘Skins fan who has seen Robert Griffin’s development from the beginning, is his recent poor play due to lack of talent, or a rather lackluster supporting cast? (sorry for asking the tough questions!)

Don’t be sorry for asking about RGIII.  Everyone does and everyone will continue to.  He dominates the headlines and gives us all headaches having to read about him all the time, but we know that’s how it is now.  His poor play over the past couple of years is due to a multitude of things, but in my opinion his biggest issue is psychological.  His mind just seems shot right now.  Of course, there are a million other factors: repeated injury (including some very major ones like a torn ACL and dislocated ankle), changing offensive playbooks/coaches, learning to be a pro-style QB after having never been one before, a poor OL, a constant media circus, etc.  It’s been bad.  The worst part is, there doesn’t appear to be just one major issue that can be corrected and then he’ll be good.  It’s so many things that it’s getting to the point where we’re all really wondering if he’s done.

#4: Which off-the-radar Redskins players should unknowing Ravens fans be looking out for?

Here are some guys to look out for:

  • RB Matt Jones – third round pick who is an absolutely huge beast of a RB.  He’s looked great throughout camp.
  • WR Jamison Crowder – fourth round pick who has yet to play in the preseason but probably has more hype than any other “unknown” Redskin right now. Making his debut against you guys and fans are on the edge of their seats to see what this guy can do.
  • RBs Chris Thompson and Trey Williams – both little scat-back types who are competing for the third-down back job.  Thompson looks like he’ll probably get it, but Williams is an impressive UDFA who plays an exciting brand of football.  Both will be fun to watch tomorrow.
  • ILB Terrance Plummer – UDFA who’s been looking like he belongs.  Makes tackles all over the place. Very solid.
  • OLB Jackson Jeffcoat – has looked very good and his chances have really increased with Galette gone.
  • OLB Preston Smith – mentioned above.  Second-round rookie who has looked great in preseason games. Will be counted on even more with Galette gone.
  • OLB Houston Bates – little known UDFA who has three sacks (including two-in-a-row) in our two preseason games.  He’s playing himself onto the roster.
  • ILB Martrell Spaight – fifth-round rookie.  Tackling machine.
  • S Kyshoen Jarrett – Has looked way better than a sixth-round rookie so far.  Plays both S spots and some nickel CB.

#5: Why do you think the Ravens-Redskins rivalry isn’t that big of a deal?

I think it really just depends on who you talk to about whether it’s a big deal or not, but for those who don’t think it is, I have a few reasons:

  • You guys are in the AFC and we’re in the NFC
  • It seems we have like a preseason rivalry going, but don’t play all that much (especially in any games that are important) during the regular season.
  • You guys have been consistently good and we’ve been consistently bad.  Kind of hard to have a rivalry that way.
  • There’s not much to trash-talk about.  Y’all are better and have been for a while.  We’re not much in the same league.  Also, it seems that most Redskins fans don’t really “hate” many guys on the Ravens.  We like teams that are built around defense and respect that.  Probably a little more jealous than anything.  We’re excited to finally have an actual GM (hopefully he turns out to be as good as y’all’s).

Once again, special thanks to Alex and Hogs Haven for their time. Good luck this week! Here’s to an injury-free, productive game.

Redskins vs. Ravens preseason 2015: Predict the score!

Typically the third preseason game is when the starters stay in for about half of the game. After the whooping put upon the team by the Philadelphia Eagles, we might even see a little more. That means that we should get our best chance to see what the final state of the offense and defense is for the Baltimore Ravens today.

Will Joe Flacco light up the scoreboard? Will the combination of Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs pick up where they left off last season by destroying RG3? Who will make a splash as a receiver? All of these questions and more will begin to be answered today.

Let us know what you expect the final score to be with the new prediction widget!

Preseason Week 3: Ravens vs. Redskins Preview

The preseason, where the results may as well be made up, and the points don’t matter.

Two more weeks. Ravens fans everywhere are circling September 13th on their calenders, when the Ravens open their season against the Denver Broncos at Mile High. However, our appetites for football must be satiated with this week’s humble appetizer. Yet Saturday night’s appetizer may turn out to be the most filling meal of the preseason, as Week 3 serves as the ‘dress rehearsal’ for most NFL teams. We’ll see starters playing into and perhaps after the half of this game, as coaches want to make final tweaks and adjustments with their starting squads before sitting them next week. There’s no doubt that this is the most important preseason game yet. While the stats and results of this game will fade almost instantly from the memories of coaches and fans, how the players play will be engrained the heads of many. Let’s take a look at the important things to watch out for in this game.

Can the Starters Bounce Back?

It was pretty much a horrendous performance from starters on both ends of the ball in last week’s 40-17 blowout loss against the Eagles. While it’s the preseason, and boring vanilla play calls and limited gameplanning are the norm, improvements must be made.

On the offense, Joe Flacco threw two picks and completed only 3 of 7 passes for 23 yards. While one interception, a deep lob that was tipped to a defender wasn’t Flacco’s fault, the other was a inexcusable overthrow straight into the hands of a defender. It was unusual, and certainly ‘so not Joe’. With Joe likely running the offensive squad for a half or so, we’ll likely get a better picture of our QB’s play.

Joe isn’t the only one who needs to step up, as the whole first-team offense combined for just 69 yards last week. An injured offensive line was also a key contributor to last week’s woes. To give you an idea of how bad the injuries were, Ryan Jensen, Marcel Jones, Leon Brown, Robert Myers and Nick Easton was the squad the Ravens were fielding in the second quarter last week. I cover the Ravens semi-professionally and I haven’t even heard of three of those guys.

The team was scraping the bottom of the barrel, and that wasn’t even enough, as backups James Hurst and De’Ondre Wesley went down last week. This unit, which has been hailed as one of the best in the league, needs to be healthy and on the field to be the best.

The defense is also to blame too. The run defense, which is regarded as one of the team’s strenghts, let the Philly running backs run all over them, allowing 46 yards rushing and two touchdown runs in the first quarter. If you watched the game, the touchdown runs looked like the Ravens defense was the CPU in Madden. It was dreadful. If this group of guys wants to show why they are one of the best in the leauge, then they need to make a statement against the weak offensive line of the Redskins.

Allen v. Magee

One of the bright spots of last week’s game was Terrence Magee. The undrafted rookie out of LSU contributed 44 of the team’s 150 yards on 11 carries. Magee looked pretty impressive, albeit against Eagles third-stringers. The rookie ran with purpose and instinct behind a suspect offensive line. Despite the nice performance, many predicted that the would be a roster cut casualty. But after Lorenzo Taliaferro’s knee injury that has him sidelined into the regular season, a door may have opened for Magee.

Standing in that doorway is the other rookie back, Javorius ‘Buck’ Allen. This year’s fourth-round selection out of USC was a dynamo in college, proving to be an effective runner and pass-catcher. Allen has recently drawn comparisons to Arian Foster, and was viewed as a nice value pick by many draft pundits and gurus. While on paper Buck looks fantastic, we haven’t seen much of him this preseason because of the talent ahead of him. But when he has been on the field, his results haven’t exactly set the world on fire. In two preseason games, he’s rushed 17 times for 54 yards (3.2 yards per carry) and caught two passes for 25 yards. Not bad, but there’s certainly room for improvement, and Offensive Coordinator Marc Trestman has noticed just that. “Buck continues to improve,” said Trestman in the days after last week’s game. But ‘Buck’ will have to do more than impress in practice, he’s got to show off his stuff in a real live game to truly impress the coaches.

With the absence of Taliaferro for a little while, it will be interesting to see who will seize the role.

Will Waller Keep it Up?

The 6′ 6″ rookie skyscraper who was at one time considered a project unlikely to crack the roster, has done everything on the field to refute that belief. The receiver has been impressing both on the practice field, and in game action. Waller has been the Ravens best receiver this preseason by far, amassing 4 receptions for 33 yards and a touchdown in limited playing time. If he can keep this up this weekend, it’d be hard to deny the receiver with sky-high potential a roster spot.

Battle of the Backup QBs

While Joe Flacco struggled last week, the other two quarterbacks on the roster had nice outings. Matt Schaub, the veteran who has been mocked by both fans and teammates alike for throwing awful picks in practice, has actually looked really solid in game action. Schaub has posted 249 yards on 22 of 36 completions, while also scoring a touchdown and throwing a pick.

On the other hand, Bryn Renner has come out of nowhere and challenged Schaub for the #2 spot behind Flacco. Following his excellent performance against New Orleans in which he scored the game-winning touchdown on his feet, Renner had yet another nice outing last week. He looked calm, cool, and collected. Renner is now 21 of 35 for 246 yards,and has tossed two touchdowns, and one pick this preseason.

While at first, many Ravens fans were nervous about the backup QB upon hearing reports from camp abour Schaub, it now appears that the team just might be in good hands. Both will be trying to feast on the Washington secondary this week in an attempt to make their case for the job.

RGIII Will Be a Big Story, Like it or Not

A media circus seems to follow the polarizing QB everywhere he goes, and the circus is certainly coming to Baltimore. Griffin has now been cleared to play following an apparent head injury in last week’s game against the Detroit Lions. The spotlight will be on him and the Redskins, not the Ravens in this one. His play will almost certainly be scrutinized. It will be interesting to see how the Ravens handle the mobile QB, but I suggest they don’t run the read option play this week.

Keep your eyes peeled for these things and more tomorrow night, we’ll have all of the coverage right here.

Ravens vs. Redskins Preseason 2015: Baltimore attempting to win the ‘Battle of the Beltway’

After last week’s beating, the Ravens look to unleash their frustrations on their regional rivals, the Washington Redskins. With this being Week 3, expect the game to serve as a ‘dress rehearsal’ for the starters, who will likely play into the half. Keep turned in to this StoryStream for all of the news and coverage you deserve surrounding tonight’s game.

Ravens vs. Redskins: Game time, TV schedule, radio, announcers and more

Football is back on the schedule, and while it’s still preseason, this week’s appetizer to the real thing is pretty tasty.

Coming of an embarrassing 40-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last week, the Ravens must show signs of improvement on both sides of the ball. The first team offense looked horrid, with Joe Flacco looking uncomfortable and his throws being ‘so not Joe’. The defense as well allowed the Eagles to literally run all over them. In practically every facet of the game, the Baltimore squad was outplayed.

The team is coming back home to face another team that has also had their fair share of woes this preseason, the Washington Redskins. The Redkins were battered and bruised last week, and their offensive line allowed Detroit to bring the heat, sacking QB Robert Griffin III three times on only eight dropbacks. The continuing theme for the ‘Skins seems to be poor quarterback play and horrid offensive lines. It will be interesting to see how Griffin, who has now been cleared to play, performs against a stout Ravens pass rush.

For the Redskins, the preseason woes continued when OLB Junior Galette went down for the year with a torn achilles. Toinght’s game will be a crucial one for the Redkins’ linebackers, as they need to step up in his place. Tonight’s game is all the more important because it is considered the ‘dress rehearsal’ for the regular season. Expect the starters to play to the half, and potentially a little bit into the third quarter too. With more time on the field to get their feet wet, expect Baltimore’s starting squad to look a lot more comfortable than last week.

Folks shouldn’t forget about the final minutes of the game either, as players lower on the depth chart will be playing their hearts out in an attempt to secure a roster spot. Guys like Bryn Renner, Darren Waller, and Quinton Pointer are key players who are on the roster bubble for the Ravens. It’s certainly the most crucial preseason game yet/

So where can you watch tonight’s festivities?  Below are the many ways you can watch the game. Whether you have a mobile device, PC, radio, or television, we’ve got you covered.

RG3 Shouldn’t Start Against The Ravens

The Redskins are making another mistake in their handling of RG3.

UPDATE: The doctors have reversed their decision. Robert Griffin has not been cleared to play against the Ravens tonight, Kirk Cousins will get the start instead.

On Thursday RG3 was cleared to start against the Ravens on Saturday. Five days after a game against the Lions, in which he was hit or sacked five times and possibly concussed. According to this CBSSports article, his offensive linemen don’t even like him.

I don’t root for the Redskins (obviously), but I’m starting to wonder what RG3 could’ve possibly done to deserve this. He’s going to play behind a line of turnstiles that may or may not dislike him at Baltimore. Against Brandon Williams, Timmy Jernigan, Carl Davis, Lawrence Guy, DeAngelo Tyson, Elvis Dumervil, Terrell Suggs, and Za’Darius Smith.

I see this ending well.

The Redskins are still making the mistakes that they’ve been making with RG3 since the 2012 Wild Card game, except that game actually meant something. This is a meaningless game. It’s a dress rehearsal for the regular season, but it’s still a meaningless game in terms of actual standings and not a game where a team should be putting the quarterback that they are desperately trying to salvage,the dynamic player traded an arm and a leg for, behind an awful offensive line.

Poll
Should the Redskins let RG3 play?
