Re: Can we get a little luck?

What about the 2 missed TB field goals that would have had us down 16-0 at the half??

What about the ball that went off the ref's head? Dont know how that wasn't picked.

We can cry about Smith and Thomas's injuries but in the big picture I think we've been pretty clean on the injury front.

Sorry can't blame bad luck for our start this year, we're just not very good.

Re: Can we get a little luck?

A good football team creates their own luck. It's making dumb personnel decisions that upsets me. How could anyone trade a Hall of Fame cornerback to Denver for a devisive running back? How could the Redskins let a solid middle linebacker who was our defensive field general go to the hated New York Giants? And how could the Redskins not see the deficiencies of the offensive line that's been there for several years and not fix it? Sometimes Campbell looks bad because the people around him make him look like a second-rate QB. To sign the dregs of the NFL, other teams' castoffs, as a fix to the offensive line is outrageous! One thing the Redskins should learn this year is that Vinnie Cerrato needs to go, and the sooner the better!

No, you make your own luck...I mean how much more lucky can Carlos Butterfinger Rogers get?

Someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed.

Anyway, our team problems have nothing to do with luck.

I'm not picking on you but if being a "butterfinger" were only the problem, things would be better...Los consistently tries to catch the ball with his body, not his hands, and thus repeatedly fails.

Re: Can we get a little luck?

Luck or no luck the bottom line is we suck! I love my REDSKINS whether they win or lose but we are a bad offensive football team and have an overrated defense. Next year, new coach, new quarterback, here we go again.................

Add this to a shotty offensive line, you're going to have the same problems.

Luck? What do you call 2-2 with this team if not lucky?

Well earned.

Seriously, we've completely deserved our 2 wins against the non-schedule we've played.

Expected W-L: 1.8-2.2. <--Per PFR.

We get a lot of crappy calls from the zebras on top of everything else.

Seriously. That was the first thing I thought of when I read this thread title.

Boswell had a great article today:

"It's better to be lucky than good."

Re: Can we get a little luck?

Not to burst anyones bubble but according to MNF teams that start the season 2-2 have a 35% chance of making the playoffs. Conversely 4-0 teams have around an 80% chance of making the playoffs.

Just an FYI, that's the football glossary you cut and pasted.
Also, Bill James theory has a flaw in it when it comes to football. He uses the points scored vs points against to dictate his numbers. He does not factor in luck (like how we beat the rams). The pythagorean theory doesn't work well in football like it does baseball.

No, we did not deserve our 2 wins (maybe the Tampa game...sort of...but no way the Rams). We are lucky to be 2-2, and we have very little to hold our heads up high on. We are not playing well enough to beat decent teams, and we are barely beating (or luckily beating) subpar teams...even lost to a subpar team and should have lost to another.

How exactly did we use luck to beat the Rams?
