WT - Are the Redskins the least opportunistic team in NFL history?

http://www.washtimes.com/sports/2006...4427-9894r.htm

When the Washington Redskins' offense needed field position or the team needed a touchdown late last season, the defense would deliver. There were five takeaways, including a touchdown, in a playoff-clinching win at Philadelphia, followed by two turnovers and another touchdown in the wild-card win at Tampa Bay.
The opportunities would come on a tipped pass or a botched handoff or a strip of the running back, and the Redskins would be right there to pounce and switch the momentum.
But this year? The defense that finished 2005 so strong has turned into a unit whose inability to create takeaways has reached record-setting proportions.
The Redskins (4-9) have only 10 takeaways this season, putting them on pace to set an NFL record for the fewest in a 16-game season. Should the Redskins fail to force another turnover this season, they would break the overall record of 11 set by the winless Baltimore Colts during the nine-game, strike-shortened season of 1982.

It's the biggest reason for our poor record. We catch some of these dropped INTs, our record might look A LOT different.

Even in Buffalo, G Williams coached defenses did not excel in INTs.
