[2023] Hogs Haven Week 3

Recommended Posts



Baltimore, MD - Life is a series of moments, any one of which can change everything with no notice.  For the Washington Redskins, that moment was when Sam Hiller-Weeden went down after blocking on a 1st quarter running play and didn't get up.  The offense wouldn't recover from their top weapon's early exit and struggled for the rest of the game converting only 21% of their 3rd downs and managing only 3 field goals on the day.  Ricardo Reed came back down to earth with a 9 carries for 7 yards performance, Tanner Bowman tossed an interception, and Patrick Burke and Ty Royal each dropped a pass.  


The miscues weren't limited to the offense, as rookie kicker Neal Watson continued his streak of games with a missed FG, clanking one off of the right upright from 49 yards in the first quarter.  That miss would prove to be costly.  Watson hit his other 3 attempts on the day, but his season percentage now sits at 66.7%.


It wasn't all bad for the Redskins though.  The defense turned in another strong performance with 4 sacks and 2 forced fumbles.  They stifled the Ravens' young offense all day, but it wasn't enough to get the job done with such a meager effort from the offense, as the Redskins fell in overtime.


Maurice White had the best game of his pro-career rushing for 60 yards on 12 carries.  His yards per carry has risen in every game and it will be interesting to see if the coaching staff tries to get him more involved after such a disappointing effort from Reed.  Another pleasant surprise was the debut of TE Frank Moffett.  Moffett was selected in the 4th round of the 2023 NFLHC draft to be groomed behind veteran TE Tony DeMarco.  But DeMarco was unavailable on Sunday after his 2nd concussion in as many weeks, and Moffett stepped up to the tune of 102 yards receiving on 8 catches.  If Moffett can continue his production it could help the Redskins survive this stretch of games without Sam Hiller-Weeden. 


One player that Coach HAFFnHAFF didn't mince words about was DT Malik Dawson.  Dawson turned in yet another poor performance in week 3, grading as the lowest player at a 1.3 rating.  Coach called out Dawson's effort on the field and insinuated that veteran DT Brad Mungro will be getting extended looks in practice this week.


The Eagles travel to Dallas this week in a vital divisional game before traveling to New York and then hosting the Eagles.  This 3 game stretch, all without Sam Hiller-Weeden, will be critical to the Redskins staying afloat in the NFC East.

It's good to see Moffet play so well


Yeah he was our backup receiving TE all season but hadn't really shown up (which isn't surprising.)  I'm not sure if he is really that good or if the rest of our WRs were that bad with Sam out so Bowman just forced it to him.  I guess we will find out.
