Cooley needs to catch, not block
Question of the Day
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The most telling image from the Washington Redskins‘ first-half offensive performance last night against the Tennessee Titans wasn’t the inefficient running game, the zero points or the constant third-and-long situations. Photo Gallery
But such was the case during the first half in which nearly the entire first-team offense played all 31 snaps.
Heyer played like an undrafted rookie, forcing play-caller Al Saunders to alter his protection schemes and keep Cooley as a blocker. During the first half of last season, Saunders had to make the same move and Cooley’s numbers suffered — three catches in the first two games, only 24 in the first eight games.
Although the running game was impotent, pass protection should be the main topic of conversation when the coaches convene today at Redskin Park.
Campbell was sacked twice (and fumbled both times). Even though he’s strong enough to take big hits — see last year when both Carolina’s Julius Peppers and the Giants’ Antonio Pierce turned out his lights with big hits — all it takes is one hit to derail this season.
On the first sack, Titans safety Vincent Fuller blitzed from the left side. Heyer, with no help to his outside, had to make a quick decision — block defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch and hope a back picked up Fuller or take on Fuller and hope left guard Todd Wade accounts for Vanden Bosch.
