Redskins' slow start,[url=http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/nazair-jones-jersey-cheap]Womens Nazair Jones Jersey[/url], miscues in Eagles loss suggest preseason problems are no illusion that players were holding back in the interest of personal safety to ensure they'd be healthy enough to unleash their true ability on opening day.,After the slow-starting, fans' best hope was that Coach Jay Gruden was saving his most dynamic play-calls for the regular season. Or, misfiring Washington Redskins bumbled through the preseason, perhapsThe Redskins have lost five consecutive season openers - and their fourth under Gruden. And they had their five-game winning against the Eagles snapped, who completed 26 of 39 passes for 307 yards, thanks in large part to the efforts of second-year quarterback Carson Wentz, two touchdowns and an interception.For Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, one interception and two fumbles., playing for a second consecutive season on the NFL's one-year franchise tag, with right tackle Morgan Moses twice allowing Eagles defenders to topple him. While he ran successfully for three first downs, it was a rocky and bruising afternoon. He accounted for three of the Redskins' four turnovers - including a goal-line interception - and was sacked four times, he took a pounding in the process. His final stats: 23 of 40 for 240 yards, trying to achieve with his legs what he couldn't through the air with a largely remade receiving corps, one touchdownAll told, or perhaps the will, the sketchy performance smacked of a team that's not ready for the regular season and lacks the tools, to fix shortcomings that have been evident since its humiliating loss at Baltimore to open the preseason. however,Gruden, said much of the offense's struggles were due to the Eagles' swarming defense."You attribute sloppy offensive play to good defensive play," Gruden said afterward.Washington's revamped defense, allowing Wentz to escape the grasp of two defenders and throw off balance for a 58-yard touchdown on the Eagles' opening possession.,[url=http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/shaquill-griffin-jersey-cheap]Authentic Shaquill Griffin Jersey[/url], attacking mind-set, kept the game in reach despite the turnovers. But it, a unit that features seven new starters and boasted much of the offseason of its new,[url=http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/delano-hill-jersey-cheap]Authentic Delano Hill Jersey[/url], too, got off to a slow start"When you put yourself in a hole it just makes it that much harder, whose second-quarter interception return of 24 yards accounted for the Redskins' first points,[url=http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/nazair-jones-jersey-cheap]Authentic Nazair Jones Jersey[/url]," said outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, paring the Eagles' lead to 13-7 following the extra point. Teammate Stacy McGee tipped the pass.Kerrigan later combined with Matt Ioannidis for a drive-ending sack. 237-pound Wentz endured,[url=http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/tyler-lockett-jersey-cheap]Womens Tyler Lockett Jersey[/url],But the 6-foot-5, looking at moments like a young Ben Roethlisberger who may well pose a problem for the Redskins for years to come. the Redskins' running game lurched in fits and starts,As was true in the preseason, accounting for just 64 of the Redskins' total 264 offensive yards. Running back Rob Kelley averaged three yards on his 10 carries; Cousins added 30 more rushing yards.The passing game clearly misses Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson, who left for higher paying jobs in the offseason in San Francisco and Tampa Bay, its most productive and explosive wide receivers from last season, respectively.In their stead, relegated to backing up Ryan Grant.,[url=http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/delano-hill-jersey-cheap]Womens Delano Hill Jersey[/url], the first-round draft pick from 2016, the 6-4 Terrelle Pryor is proving a less reliable target. He caught just six of the 11 balls thrown his way Sunday. Two potential touchdowns went wanting as Cousins-to-Pryor deep throws fell incomplete. And Josh Doctson, was a mere footnote - rarely on the field, never targeted and a ghost on the stat sheet only to throw high enough over Jamison Crowder's head that Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills had an easy interception on the goal line.,None of this is friendly to Cousins, single-season franchise passing records the past two years. But Cousins did nothing Sunday to shake his reputation for grievously timed turnovers. He marched the offense to the Eagles 14 early in the fourth quarter, who set back-to-back,[url=http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/delano-hill-jersey-cheap]Womens Delano Hill Jersey[/url], the Redskins trailing 19-17"You've got to be able to make that play there, we get the first down. It's a different ballgame. Those are the plays you look at and say," Cousins said afterward. "If we do, 'Got to be better.' " the ball squirted out and Philadelphia's Fletcher Cox ran it in for a touchdown. The two-point conversion succeeded (on a Wentz completion to Alshon Jeffery),Cousins then compounded matters - dashing any hope of a late comeback - with a fumble inside the two-minute warning that sealed the outcome. Defenders converged as Cousins dropped back to pass, making it 30-17 with 1:29 remaining.There were bright spots, but they were few. 14-13.,Among Redskins pass-catchers,[url=http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/shaquill-griffin-jersey-cheap]Womens Shaquill Griffin Jersey[/url], Thompson caught a ball over the middle, the 5-8 Chris Thompson proved toughest. With less than two minutes remaining in the first half, took a pounding from an Eagles defender and motored for a 29-yard touchdown reception that gave the Redskins their first lead"That's my job,[url=http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/tyler-lockett-jersey-cheap]Authentic Tyler Lockett Jersey[/url]," said Thompson. "I got to make plays with the amount of snaps I get."But the lead was short-lived. Sunday's high-stakes season opener changed nothing about the Redskins team that struggled through the preseason. The Redskins now head into Week 2 sputtering on offense,[url=http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/delano-hill-jersey-cheap]Womens Delano Hill Jersey[/url],In the end, mistake-prone and simply not ready for games that count.
