Why was this game so close? The stats don't connect for me?

I agree, We put up a lot of rushing yards up and did a good job passing, just no scoring. Another dominant performance without the points to show for it. We really need to start creating turnovers.

We really need to finish drives. No reason we shouldn't have won by at least two touchdowns today. Still, a win's a win!

True, a W is indeed a W, but we do need to be able to get the job done. Yardage is nice, but it is all about the points. Detroit came back today and made it a game with the Texans, but of course they gave themselves too little time to really get a W. Cleveland is a better team than Detroit now with Kitna and Williams gone, but if we get complacent, we can lose next week as far fetched as that sounds. It is great that JC doesn't have any INT's but he is very dry on TD passes as of late.

One thing I would definitely like to see is us being able to put up 20+ points, consistently, week in and week out. It's funny, since when we play teams like Philly and Dallas, we make it look EASY!

Don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth, but if we continue to play down to the level of teams like that, we will not be going far. We were lucky today that Cleveland sucks.
Anderson and Braylon Edwards were terrible.

NO question! 14pts will NOT get it done against the Steelers in two weeks

I agree, that is the only way we will become a strong contender for the whole enchilada. This was the tune up part of our schedule where we were looking to get 30pts a game, but we are simply not scoring or playing sloppy as with the Rams. No way we beat the Gmen playing like this, or Pittsburgh for that matter.

My feelings exactly. We've got work to do, no doubt. But we got the W!

Re: Redskins vs. Browns gameday thread

I'm happy we won. Now that I've got that out of the way, I'm tired of being unable to consistently score points, game in and game out, year in and year out. All the nice yardage stats look great, but we just aren't scoring enough. I love the way 5-2 looks, but we simply have to find the endzone more.

Also, the lack of pass rush is just maddening. We come close to sacks all the time, but it just seems like we can't bring down the QB.

On a side note, dating back to last season, we're 9-3 in our last 12 games. Pretty good. Imagine if we could score more.

Plackemeier looked very solid. A helluva lot better than Durant.

Re: Redskins vs. Browns gameday thread

The Ravens in 2000 won ugly a lot. They could afford to do so because they had a terrific defense. They ended up winning the Super Bowl.

For the 2008 Skins the defense brings it every single week. And the offense is better than the 2000 Ravens.

The point is that, although winning pretty would be nice, we may be on the right track.

That was a very unfortunate fumble but it's silly for anyone to get on Portis the way he is running. That defensive player came up from behind and hacked the ball from behind Portis hard as hell. Portis didn't even see him. He's certainly having the MVP year.... just think if he had done weights and off-season workouts in previous years like he did this year!

I agree with most in here... a win is a win but they cannot keep trying to lose games that they should have won easily. Last week, they totally dominated the Rams but still lost. Today, they had tons of more yardage in the first half than Cleveland but still had no score and punted like five times or so. They gotta put these teams away. I really didn't like it when they went up 14-3 and let Cleveland come right back down the field and only a magnificent goal line stand stopped them from scoring.

But 5-2 is pretty damn good right now with this schedule and in this division and just one game behind the Giants.

I beg to differ. The Ravens D was killer, the offense was adequate. Our D is good and our offense has dropped recently from being great to just adequate(statwise it is excellent, but it is points that count). Our D does not produce turnovers, but the 2000 Ravens did. The Ravens also played in a rather weak division. The NFC East is rarely weak. The game that will help us truly gauge this team is the MNF game against the Steelers. This team might just have a hard time getting up for weak games and get jacked up for the big ones. The Pittsburgh game is the next 'big" game. Hopefully we will rise to the occasion and kick some ass.

Re: Redskins vs. Browns gameday thread

Nobody said winning is always pretty. I'll take an ugly win over an ugly loss any day. LOL

5-2 is feeling good especially with Dallas going down today... again
