For comparison, in 2004 the most sacks allowed by any team was 66, the least was 14 (Indianapolis). In 2005 the most allowed was 68, the least was 20 (again Indianapolis).

Also, the Skins had 31 sacks in 2005, 38 in 2005. So, really not that much different than KC.

So, KC is really the top of the "middle of the pack" as far as sacks allowed goes. Those stats also make you start to realize a huge part of why Peyton Manning is so amazing - the dude hardly ever gets hit.
Did you mean the skins gave up 31 in 2004 and 38 in 2005. If that is correct I wish we where going the other way.

Re: Gas in the tank: Brunell (sponsored by big oil)

I don't have much faith in Mark Brunell. I don't think not losing games is enough to win a Super Bowl. And yes, I am aware that Dilfer won a Super Bowl once, but this ain't a 7 point a game defense. I don't know how all of these egos will gel on the offensive side of the ball, but I don't think Mark Brunell is gonna keep everybody happy when he starts throwing the ball away on 3rd downs. But I'm sure no one will be open on any of those plays...

I think you may be looking for the "Strahan 'alternative lifestlye'?" thread.

Not really no. For at least most of the season, Mark Brunell had played quite well. He was clutch in 3rd down situations. Maybe if you have access to every game of this past season, you'll find that Brunell played pretty well up until the point where he had gotten injured.

and the point where both patten and thrash were out and guys like jimmy farris were lining up opposite moss

My feeling is there is enough support both talentwise and depthwise around him and he's got enough left in the tank, but it never hurts to have the young backup ready to go. I doubt we'll see much of Brunell at all this summer.

At age 35, Mark Brunell is one year younger than John Elway was when he won his first Super Bowl.

Just a thought.

Time, time is the key now. MB is going to get tons of it. This is the lines 3rd year together, play action and the running game are going to keep offenses off balance, Mark will have another career year, 25 TD's 8 Ints, 3500 yards

Sorry, but I don't consider 50% completion percentage and 76.9 QB rating on third down's last year "phenomenal". By comparison, Drew Bledsoe and Michael Vick had better third down numbers than Mark Brunell last year.

And the exact comment I was calling a joke was the remark that "Every pass was amazing".

Re: Gas in the tank: Brunell (sponsored by big oil)

I think Mark is gonna be the best he has ever been this year last year protection was decent and I think it will be better this year. I agree this is his best year to get a ring and I think he knows that. We have great depth and even if he does go down Jason Campbell is gonna be awsome. Our best assest this year is gonna be the 3 and 4 wideout sets that are gonna set up portis for a 2000 yrd season. Hail to the skins baby the dynasty is comin back to D.C.
