    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Bucs

    I was definitely nervous. But I'm nervous every game. I thought it would go our way, but I was definitely nervous. I'd much rather be nervous and 6-3 though. Having said that, I don't think we've arrived. I hope the team continues to improve, but I'm happy with the results thus far.

    First, lets count 2015 (1), 2016 (2), 2017 (3), 2018 (4).... if you want to be specific 2018 (3.5625) You are right when you said I misread your post. When I read "a punch of plays" I assumed you were referencing forced fumbles where we punch the ball out. 3rd - 5th see @Califan007 post above. The recent history is correct for both fumbles and turnovers.

    No. Actually, I read your post. Saw the 1 stat you referenced as occurring purely by luck/abnormal. And told you that you were wrong. The team has been very good at your "abnormal" play for the past 4 years. In such a year-to-year, even week-to-week league a 4 year trend is actually very telling. If you want to continue to snack on your member berries and dwell on your heartbreak from 20 years ago, that's fine. But when you make mischaracterizations about this team, and it's fairly blatant, I may comment if I have a free moment.

    That's not true. We're actually top 10 in forced fumbles since 2015. That's one where we're relatively good.

    Can we stop pretending now?

    That team with an injured Rodgers beat the Bears, tied with the Vikings and beat the Bills. There's no reason to discount that win. Good teams win the games they are suppose to win. We've done that for the most part. Our wins also haven't been luck. We needed work on finishing teams early, but most games in this league are close anyway. The Redskins are playing good football. They're not playing like a top 5 team, but no one had that expectation this year. It's odd that so many people are down on a team that's exceeding most expectations.

    Redskins Lead NFC East

    The defense went out this past Sunday with a goal of not getting beat deep. They were playing way off the ball. That lead to Tampa moving the ball at will until they reached the redzone. Once the true deep shot was taken away by the back of the end zone the defense tightened up and played very well. Sunday's win wasn't a fluke. It was a gameplan that came together and worked against a really good offense.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I'm thinking Schaffer will ultimately be the Director of Football Operations and Kyle would be the GM.

    Safety Clinton Dix to the skins

    Those talks happened weeks earlier. From the Kimberley A Martin piece: https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/redskins/dont-answer-your-phone-inside-the-trade-that-brought-alex-smith-to-the-redskins/2018/03/16/0340c74a-2951-11e8-874b-d517e912f125_story.html?utm_term=.ca9a479ba772

    Safety Clinton Dix to the skins

    Doug and the coaches wanted Alex. Once Bruce knew that, it was his job to try to make the trade happen. The power move narrative around the trade is overblown.
  10. I found this interesting. Alex is on pace for his 2nd highest yardage output, 4th best TD total, lowest INT output, and 5th highest QB rating. Alex may just be playing Alex Smith ball.
  11. This stat is more about ball control. It's one of the things Alex can be credited with so far this year where the team sees a great benefit.
  12. Good work by the coaching staff.
  13. The Cowboys defense is very good. We left a lot on the field. We still have a lot of work to do, but you have to be happy with 4-2. Have to hope the team continues to improve, but this is a good start to the season.
