Dear Mr. Snyder

Dear Mr. Snyder:

Yes, we are DELIGHTED with 3-1, but we still have some big issues with play calling.

Whether Kyle Shanahan is auditioning for a head coaching job, sticking to his “expect the unexpected” style of offense or CONFUSING Rex Grossman for someone other than Rex Grossman, his play calling remains suspect and ALMOST again cost our beloved Redskins what should have been an EASY win.

Coach Kyle came out against the last place rushing defense in the NFL which also, by the way, led the NFL in missed tackles and promptly passed on SEVEN of the first ten plays.  Thankfully, he came to his SENSES and started handing the ball to Ryan Torain and Roy Helu.

That said, in the fourth quarter, ONCE AGAIN, he had a chance to run off big clock and GUARANTEE an easy win when he asked Rex to throw on FIRST DOWN.  This time instead of a harmless incompletion, Rex didn’t see the linebacker that intercepted what should have been a RUN and put the hapless Rams back in the game…

Last week, we carped about NOT running with the lead against the Cowboys, and now all the pundits and fans are on the complaint bandwagon after he did the SAME THING this week.  The justification from head coach Shanahan was that they thought that pass would get them “a big play.”  They DIDN’T need a big play, they needed to kill time.

Thankfully, the defense stood tall and the Rams proved that they may be the WORST team in football.

If you get a chance, would you KINDLY send a few more memos to Kyle noting that RUNNING is good and REX is REX.

Sincerely, 
Your Loyal Fans At T.A.H.
