Bengals Vs. Redskins 2012: 'We Are Who We Thought We Were'

The Redskins 38-31 loss to Cincinnati was a back-and-forth battle which resulted in plenty of excitement and frustration for Redskins fans.

Plenty of community members at SB Nation's Redskins blog Hogs Haven were quick to blame the defense for the loss, but reactions ranged. Hogs Haven author Tiller56 summed up the loss saying the Redskins are exactly what some feared they would be.

We are who we thought we were...............seriously!

Our worst nightmares came true during our home opener to the Cincinnati Bengals and their porous defense, but our Redskins were the ones left looking like a sieve after a 38-31 beating at the hands of Andy Dalton and A.J. Green.

Some community members are predicting doom and gloom just three weeks into the season.


Oline sucks. Secondary sucks. No draft picks, no money to attract top talent for the next 2 years at least. I thought Hall was supposed to be in the slot. Apparently someone told him he can still cover #1 receivers. Yeah right. RG3 still looks legit. He drove his team down the field when the line gave him time. It’s something you want to see out of him now, not in a couple of years. Someone has to tell me how we go from 1st and 10 to 3rd and 45 in a matter of seconds. Who had that 15 yard penalty? We won’t be able to contend before at least 4 years.

Rant time!!!

Redskins players are dropping like flies. Polumbus & Black are going to get RG3 killed. The pass rush was not existent in the 2nd half. The entire 2ndary played like they were practice squad players. No WR could create separation at the minimal times RG3 had time in the pocket. 3rd & long will doom this defense. Hall covering the QB while Gomes covering AJ Green was priceless.

While plenty of members were angry, at least two were looking on the positive side ... sort of.

Tsk, tsk, tsk . Such pessimism.

Listen. All we need are some guys who can block, some who can cover and some who can get to the passer. We have everything else!

Take a deep breath everyone...

We have a QB. WE HAVE A QB. Chill. Refs suck, our backup tackles suck, our secondary is playing badly. But chill out y’all!
