Redskins offense looks shaky in 23-17 loss to the Ravens

The Washington Redskins offense didn’t look very good to say the least in their 23-17 preseason loss to the Baltimore Ravens.  The passing game looked scattershot and the running game was barely registering.   Their were penalties, sacks, turnovers and everything that could have gone wrong pretty much did.  But sometimes you have games like that and in the preseason things aren’t always how they seem.

We’ve seen some Redskins teams in the past look great in the preseason and go on to be terrible in the regular season.  We’ve seen teams look terrible in the preseason and then look great in the regular season.  So I wouldn’t be too quick to rush to judgment on the Redskins offense.  The Baltimore Ravens are very good defensively and the Redskins barely had time to prepare for them.

And I know the Redskins defense has looked great in the preseason but they are playing the same defense from the past four years.  So unlike the offense, the defense isn’t having to learn a totally new scheme.  So yes things looked painful at times as quarterback Robert Griffin III struggled to find open men and the running game couldn’t get going.

But now head coach Jay Gruden and his starters will have two weeks to get ready for the regular season opener against the Houston Texans.  And the majority of them will come into that game healthy and ready to make an impact.  So even though things didn’t go the way we would have like to have seen them go on offense.  I do think the guys will be ready when the bullets start flying for real.
