Ton of good points here, but not sure a hard stance either way is all that beneficial from a coaches perspective.
One could use the RB example both ways. Not that it's wrong, but it all needs taken with the proper perspective....glass half full/glass half empty. Any Defensive coach looking to make his unit more productive can't ignore the drops. Guys were simply wide open. Weather they dropped the pass or caught it is moot for locating areas of development.....strengths vs. weaknesses, etc.. Any future OC game planning with film from the Redskins game will see what worked and what didn't work. How would you count a dropped pass play? Something to consider running? I say absolutely.
An offensive game plan was able to exploit a weakness.....it happens, but can we stop it next week? That is the question DL is asking himself, and asking his D coaches. Don't fool yourself....he's asking it.
