Point #1: The Skins are the only team bringing back all their coach's and players, consistancy speaks volumes.

Point #2: Considering the Skins only had 50 plays on offense. We were a run first offense. Our only WR threat was 5-10. and our O-line couldn't pass block for anything...would most likely explain your point. Maybe with some help on the O-line, 3 new pass catching threats (Kelly, Thomas,and Davis), and now 130+ new plays added to their repituar as JC has stated the team will be better.

Point #3: You could say that about Orakpo cause he has not played a down. You might even be able to say we are unsure if AH will work out in our system, but his job is to rush the QB somewhere in between ....take on double teams and stop the run. He's done that for what 7yrs now. He's a proven commodity. The other big names had to know when to fall back into coverage or rush the QB...Archelleta, Taylor. AH will do fine.
Good point about the number of plays we had to work with SBXVII. Is it any wonder defenses caught up to us in the second half of the season? With only 50 plays and our o-line breaking down, no turnovers forced by our defense, dropped passes, and our kicker trying to get use to different holders, it's a wonder we scored at all in the second half of the season. These were real problems, not excuses. Even the assistant coaches were having to learn a new system. I think most, if not all, of these things have been addressed. I think some legitimate gripes have been made, but I also think Zorn installed what he could last year considering what he had to work with, and this year, Zorn, JC, and the Redskins in general, are going to make a lot of people eat their words.

You mean you don't want to hear for years how the only reason the Skins won was because it was a strike year? LOL.

I don't care how they label it. In the end (SB) the best teams are on the field. They might be able to say that about the regular season, heck they maybe able to say this was the year that the NFCE sucked...I don't care cause in the end...playoffs we play the best of the best. Then the best of the AFC.

People love to hate the Skins. They will find any excuse to down play a win or trophy. I honestly can see the Skins floating under the radar, going 7-0 in the games up to the bye and I bet you still see the media not mentioning them. Simply cause of last yr and how they went 6-2 then 2-6. Everyone will be waiting for the 0-7 second half of the yr so the Skins won't be mentioned until like week 11 or 12. I think we supprise people this yr.

Finally, as much as i hate to admit it, romo is a good/very good regular season passer and the loss of to will not lead to a large dropoff in total passing yardage as roy williams will be in his second year in the system.
Now, admittedly, it is time for thomas, kelly, and davis to step up and contribute solidly to the passing game for us as well so as a whole the division looks to be pretty solid. But using returning stats is not very smart because by that logic, the pats are returning 0 yards...does that mean they suck?? The other two are huge points though so props for bringing that up
Well this is surely not going to help Maclin help out that Eagle passing game.

I hope we don't see this situation and sign Orakpo before camp starts.

Here's the way the stats line up in the NFC East according to NFL.com:

philly = 6th in the league in passing, 362 completions
dallas = 9th, 328 completions
nyg = 18th, 298 completions
was = 23rd, 318 completions

I guess there are statistical myths, as you've pointed out, but then there's actual results, and our passing game has been downright impotent for years.
If a player comes off the bench and catches a TD, it still counts for 6 points.
