    Game Day Thread - Redskins VS Pink Panthers

    This statement to me to thinking - just where are both of these guys. After looking at the data I think both statements above are true (I thought that going in. Just wanted to see if the data confirmed or denied). But to add what I see as the rest of the story: Their career pre-game averages are almost identical. However, in fairness, Dak had an amazing 1st season where Alex was on some really bad 49er teams to start. So to get to those numbers Dak has gotten worse since the start. Alex on the other hand has gotten better. To test that you would have to compare last year for both players. That would not be fair to Dak since Alex had a career year - which is looking to be as much an outlier as Dak's first season. There is still plenty of time for Alex - but so far his production is not where it was last year. Anyway - here is the data. Kind of interesting.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Panthers

    Your veteran QB has to know he can't take a sack. Nothing wrong with being aggressive. That's on Alex. Has to be more aware of the situation. Actually it worked exactly the way it's supposed to. Keep Cam from beating you with his feet and nothing deep. No big plays. Keep it all in front of you. Eventually Cam will make a mistake - and he did. Missed a few guys he should have hit In the end, the team won the game - D only gave up 17 pts - tier 2nd lowest pt total and after they scored 30+ pts the last two weeks. Agree Dllne and AP. I will assume you were being sarcastic about Norman. He really had a great game. Glad to see it. Word is he called a team meeting with the D. They all aired some issues. Was a really good meeting. Teammates feel a lot better about Josh after the meeting. He is apparently quite in the locker room - seemed aloof. People close to the team said they came away with a better understanding of who Josh is. I may have to retract my wanting him gone after this season if he keeps this up.

    Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    I almost started a new thread but not sure it's worth it. Was afraid it would digress into a **** session. We already have enough of those. But if we are going to compare Kirk to Alex, the best is Kirk last year vs. Alex this year. That's when they had the closest to the same team around them. Is it perfect? Of course not. But it's better than comparing Alex here to Kirk in Minnesota. Hopefully we can all agree MN has better overall talent. If not, I just cannot help you. maybe you should start watching tennis. Anyway, Kirk has the overall edge in most categories but he is not blowing Alex away. There is one category that Alex is leading in that's pretty damn important - last year after 5 gms the record was 2-3. This year 3-2. I totally get the D is better - or at least playing better. But if you look at the D last year coming out of KC, the numbers were very similar. That's when the injuries started happening. It's kind of interesting. Not sure it makes any statement. I am sure those wanting to believe Kirk is much better will find ways the data say that. Those wanting to say Alex is no worse will believe that and try to make that case. For me, it's looks pretty close in many areas. There are a few that are noticeably different in Kirk's favor: TDs - You could argue that's because there is a better running game and the RBs are getting a few more TDs. Last year Kirk led all runners in TDs with 4. Not a good stat. Right now we have 5 rushing TDs so far. Last year the team had 10 all year, including Kirk's 4. I did not look to see exactly how many rushing TDs after 5 gms but I would guess it's less than 5, and Kirk had one of those as Alex has one this year. Sacks - This is interesting. If the ints were different you could make the case he is taking more sacks to keep the ints down. I think that's the case, but Kirk was pretty good on both. And Alex actually has 1 more than Kirk at the same time last year. Maybe that's a line issue? The line didn't start getting banged up until a few more games in last year. But when it did it was crazy. Rushing YDs - more the yds/carry. Alex is supposed to be more mobile which I would see as more rushing atts (yes), with more efficiency since it should be more when things break down. I was saying last year I thought Kirk should run more. He threw some bad passes when he had 10 - 15 yds in front of him. What's really interesting is that Alex has more attempts than Kirk at this time. I have not checked but I wonder if that's due to more possessions - the D getting the ball back more. Any way, there is a lot more dissection that can be done. But here are the raw numbers. I plan to update this each week for my own amusement. Will post in case anyone is interested.

    The "if they did..." thing can go both ways. Had Alex hit a few more passes early, had the WRs ran better routes, had they scored a TD on the final drive it's all a moot pt. But the game is what it is. You force Cam to throw because he will make mistakes. What the D did was make sure he and Fournette did not beat them on the ground. The offenses has taken a step back so far this year. But the D has done a nice job. 8th in pts/gm and 8th in yds/gm and that is with the NO debacle. They had one bad game. Defense is something you can build on in this league. It may be too late for Jay. But the person coming in will inherit a pretty solid core for D. A few more pieces and they could be pretty special. If the offense can get untracked it may save Jay - for me I need to see 10-6 and at least one PO win. That earns Jay another season. But of course I do not make the decisions. Next two games are huge. They should be very winnable games. If they come out flat - as has been Jay's MO, a good game a bad game when you have a chance to make a statement - then he just needs to be gone. Beat dallast and the giants and 6-2 looks pretty good.], even with a tough rest of the season coming up.

    Yea facts are just so dumb.

    Game Day Thread - Redskins VS Pink Panthers

    That's an absolutely ridiculous statement. Find anyone here that is claiming this team is the 91' Skins. Certainly not me. If you read the back and forth, they made a comment that basically the team is **** because they have not really beaten anyone. I simply made the point that is factually inaccurate and proved it with facts.

    Game Day Thread - Redskins VS Pink Panthers

    You are either slow are being purposefully obtuse. I made no claims to the future of this team. I simply and very purposefully only pointed out that the record is what it is. And you declaring/implying the team is **** because of who they played is just as ridiculous as someone claiming the team is anything but a just above team that is currently 3-2 and in 1st place. I am sorry that facts bother you. My point is not only not awful it's 100% accurate. Not doing this any more. You clearly just want to complain. So have it.

    Hmm... I guess you decided to ignore the 100% data driven dissection of the actual record to show - guess what - the "shallow" analysis was spot on. We are a just above average team that had beaten more bad than lost to and are .500 against teams with winning records.

    Game Day Thread - Redskins VS Pink Panthers

    To quote Bill Parcels - You are what your record says - We are 3-2. You want to make this like well - they are 3-2 and but they really just suck. Maybe. But right now - the team is 3-2. Period. Qualifiers are just to support some kind of narrative. It would be the same if someone was saying this is a sure fire SB team at 3-2 because they have a few weak games coming up and just beat Carolina. If you want to evenly dissect the record - they are 2-1 against bad teams and 1-1 against teams with winning records. And since we want to over analyze - Colts are the only team that had a losing record when we played them. AZ and GB were at .500. NO and Panthers had winning records. Last two teams are 7-3 combined. We are 1-1.

    Jacksonville getting **** slapped in dallast. Just great for dallast to sort things out before they come play us.

    Game Day Thread - Redskins VS Pink Panthers

    You are missing, or purposely ignoring the only fact that the team has control over - 3-2. There is nothing the team can do about who they play, which was the point. And actually coming into the game Carolina was 3-1. They still have a winning record as 3-2. So is Carolina one of the worst teams in the NFL?

    Game Day Thread - Redskins VS Pink Panthers

    You cannot control who you play. So that's a moot point. The record is 3-2 - not 3-2 with an asterisk.

    Cannot believe I am so pissed after a win! Just tired of not being able to enjoy the games. I fully expected the final score to be 24-23. Dreaded every play. When they won it was not joy. It was relief. They make it very hard to enjoy being a Redskins fan, even when they win. WHo here really think they will beat dallast next week? They come off what should be a big win against Carolina. dallast is a mostly **** team. Eagles paly panthers next week. Skins could take charge of this division. How many of us expect a totally flat performance? Please!! Please surprise me!! Win the next two and get to 6-2! It's right there for you!

    Let's start with let's get out of the 70s with "dude". And I said all along they had one bad game. That was the point. And leaving that data point in they are still only giving up 20.8 pt/s a gm. Good for 8th in the league!!! **** all you want about the D. But it's misplaced. They are playing pretty damn well. It's the Off that has taken a step back.

    Guys are playing hurt. Not too early to call Doctson oft injured and I am one of his biggest fans. He seems dinged up all the time. TW and Moses both playing but dinged up. Thompson out. Lavaou out. Sorry, at this point, you just can;t keep using the injury excuse. Richardson came to us with a history of injuries. Crowder missed time last year due to injury. I cam not saying you replace them all. But seems like they are doing very little.
