Re: And the Skins hating continues...

Shockingly, I'm looking at Pete Prisco as an example of a relatively balanced analysis of the game:

He doesn't sugar-coat it... the win *was* ugly. But he doesn't take anything away from the defense, either, like the tool in question at SI.

all of the turnovers were great plays by the redskins...the 2 ints were tipped at the line and the fumble was a great hit by marcus washington
in addition, the D kept caddy to 40 something rushing yards... and williams was getting back on track towards the end of the year. our rush defense sets the tone for everything else.

Re: And the Skins hating continues...

I just watched the post game show (I was too busy celebrating last night) and all Berman, Young & co did was bash the Redskins and say how much they sucked and didn't deserve to win the game. No respect. Even if we win next week The Skins won't get any respect...

On the other side of the ball, we were playing classic conservative Gibbs football with a lead. Of course they Tampa put up some yards, they had to be aggressive, and that's evidenced by the almost twice as many passes thrown.

The real reason these writers are having a field day with the 120 yards is because they're trying to portray the Skins as this broken down van rolling up to the start line, racing against a Ferrari. We've got no offense, and Seattle's starting O is basically the entire Pro Bowl roster. What a story!

This is nothing but good for us. It's bulletin board material for our defense who are going to come out angry, and it puts all this pressure on Seattle to come out and just smoke us because we don't deserve to be on the same field as them. And that has a way of backfiring on you.
Great point about our defensive gameplan. We were short our best corner, lost a D-line anchor, and surrendered our starting free safety to idiocy. Of course something was going to be open to the Bucs. We chose 7 yard routes over the middle - not a bad choice, given the outcome.

Re: And the Skins hating continues...

Football is a team sport, with the team being defense, offense and special teams. When one squad struggles, the others step it up. That's what happened at Tampa. The TEAM won and the TEAM is going to Seattle!

The Redskins ended the regular season 10-2 against NFC teams. They are the class of the conference. They did not need offense to beat Tampa Bay. SI might have noted that.

"Spit happens." That was a good one.

Great post, dgack. Particularly the part about the running game stats. When you're in a defensive slugfest like this one was, it comes down to who is more successful running the ball. In this case, that is certainly a relative measurement, but I think it's clear that Portis and Betts gained the tough yards when it mattered, and kept the Skins offense on the field just long enough to hold the Bucs at bay.

And maybe instead of cracking on Portis for talking about his shoulder injury-- a topic which a reporter brought up at the press conference, by the way-- maybe the guy should compliment him for continuing to go back for more punishment against the #1 defense; playing though the pain and battling for the hard-earned yards when his team needed him down the stretch. Portis didn't present his shoulder injury as an excuse, either. He pretty much brushed it off, saying it's just something he's going to have to play through until the season is over. He didn't try to make a big deal about it. This Skins-hating reporter just tried to make it sound like Portis was making excuses, which wasn't the case at all.

Maybe he should have noted that Portis aggravated the injury when he knocked Shelton Quarles on his butt, doing with devastating efficacy what most runningbacks shy away from-- pass-blocking. Portis, while being a 1500 yard rusher, also pass blocks better than darn near any fullback in the league. Portis is one of the toughest dudes you'll ever meet. To suggest he's using injuries as an excuse is downright ignorant.

Apparently, this guy hasn't figured out that anything over 3 yards a carry against the #1 defense ain't too shabby. Particularly when the Bucs were putting 10 men at the line of scrimmage at times, knowing the Skins were in conservative, ball-control mode.

That was just a weak, ill-founded article by a feeble-minded writer.

Re: And the Skins hating continues...

wow, this guy is a total prick. he gives no credit whatsoever to the skins. to top it all off, he called the two skins interceptions flukes and then he goes on to say that the bucs have a good future and the skins will lose next week. this guy either lost money, is a bucs fan, hates the skins or all three combined.


but the skins won the game and the bucs stay home, so screw that guy.

Re: And the Skins hating continues...

This guy doesn't know jack shit, he's basically accusing Portis of faking his shoulder injury.

As we've all seen this year, CP is one of the toughest SOB's to have ever put on a Redskins uniform.

He must have really been hurting to miss so many snaps like he did.
