Re: Some positives from week 2

They scored 27 points. It used to take 3 games to score 27 against good teams, I like that it seems like they can score points. Plus they are entertaining to watch, the last few years were painfully boring to watch a team be almost incapable of scoring.

Re: Some positives from week 2

^^ The vast majority of the noteworthy positives from the game have already been pointed out, the fact we experienced that late game meltdown on defense should not overshadow them. Yesterday's game highlighted both our strengths and weaknesses.

I tip my hat to the Texans, they came into our place and [with a little help from us] played the majority of the game coming from behind and did enough to win. In defense of the defense [notwithstanding personell issues] fatigue, coupled with the belief they had the game won before actually winning it contributed to their downfall. Could it be we just couldn't stand prosperity having a sizeable lead late in the game, a situation all too uncommon to us?

This was one of those games where the outcome leaves you with mixed emotions, so many good things, [seemingly enough to win] enough bad that it's causes you to lose.

Re: Some positives from week 2

There were a lot of positives. The one thing that really stands out is that Kyle and his dad know how to design and run an offense. When was the last time we saw roll outs, play action roll outs and the QB throws back across the field? I don't think I've seen that since Gibbs 1. So very happy about that. I also like that McNabb isn't afraid to take some chances. Even though the 3-20 was called back, at least we now have someone who has the confidence to make that stick throw.

We actually played in an O shoot out. When the hell was the last time we did that?

Re: Some positives from week 2

•The Redskins’ 20 points scored in the first half were their most in any half since Dec. 23, 2007, at Minnesota when they scored 22, also in the first half.

•The Redskins scored on their first three possessions in a game for the first time since Sept. 4, 2003, against the New York Jets. The Redskins played 112 games in between that contest and today’s game.

•The Redskins scored on their first drive in consecutive games for the first time since Weeks 12 and 13 of last year, against Philadelphia and New Orleans, respectively.

•The Redskins scored first in consecutive games for the first time since Weeks 12 and 13 of last year, against Philadelphia and New Orleans, respectively.

•The Redskins’ five sacks were their most since Week 14 of last year at Oakland when they had eight.

•The Redskins’ 403 net passing yards are the seventh-most in team history and the most since Dec. 26, 1999, against San Francisco (454 yards).

•Fred Davis’ 62-yard reception from Donovan McNabb in the second quarter was the longest of his career. His previous high was 29 yards in Week 12 of 2009 at Philadelphia.

•Galloway’s 88 receiving yards are his most since Sept. 16, 2007, vs. New Orleans (135 yards).

•McNabb’s 426 passing yards are the fourth-most in team history and the most since Brad Johnson threw for a club-record 471 yards on Dec. 26, 1999, against San Francisco. McNabb’s 426 passing yards are the most in a losing effort in franchise history.

•McNabb’s 426 passing yards accounted for the third-highest single-game total in his career.

•McNabb passed Hall of Famer Steve Young (33,124) and Phil Simms (33,462) for 20th place on the NFL’s all-time passing list.

•McNabb’s 62-yard completions to Davis and Galloway tied for the 13th-longest completions of his career. It is the first time McNabb has ever completed two passes of at least 62 yards in the same game.

•Clinton Portis’ two touchdowns on Sunday gave him 46 as a Redskin, which moves him past Stephen Davis for second in franchise history.

•Carlos Rogers’ first-quarter interception was his first of the season and seventh of his career. It was Rogers’ first interception since Dec. 28, 2008 at San Francisco.

•Mike Sellers’ four receptions matched his career high, which he first achieved on Nov. 23, 2008 at Seattle.


There are more I just skipped through....

I can vouch for Dirtbag's analysis. Went above and beyond the call of duty.

Re: Some positives from week 2

It was awesome to see us throw the ball like that. Really, really impressive. The playcalling was just sick. I was really pleased. When we were up 27-10, I was like, "what team is this and what did you do with the Washington Redskins???" But then the Redskins we all know showed up late.

Trent Williams is a definite beast. I hope that he gets well soon.

We had 5 sacks. 5! Although we had some defensive troubles, you have to like the pressure that we put on Schaub most of the time.

Last year we would have lost this game 31-10.
Agree that 5 sacks is awesome. But not at the expense of allowing 500 passing yards. IMO we should have backed off of the blitzing a bit once Schaub started molesting our exposed secondary.

Definitely one of the best blocking backs in the game today, and one of the best I've seen all time too

Re: Some positives from week 2

My postives are very simple and from a big perspective. We are 1-1. When I looked at our schedule, I thought after 2 games against Dallas and Houston we would probably be 1-1, but the best thing about being 1-1 is that our WIN was against Dallas, in division and in conference, which matters SO much more than losing to the Texans.

Here is the best thing however, Dallas has to play Houston next week!!!! The Texans are about to be 3-0 and the Cowboys 0-3.

Re: Some positives from week 2

We look like a professional football team in the NFL for the first time in a while. Even in a loss, we were doing the right kinds of things. And, for what it's worth, this was a fun game to watch, but for the ending. There's something to be said for playing exciting football!

Finally, there's enough optimism about this team, even in a loss. I feel like we're on the right track. It's partly DMac--wow--but it's the coaching staff and FO as well. Now let's use this to grow.

Yes, Landry is on fire now. This is the guy that we all thought we were getting when he was drafted. Obviously, he fits in this scheme. Hope he's ok along w/ TW.

McNabb was great yesterday. Just not enough OL at the end of the game.

A lot of our "blitzes" don't actually sacrifice coverage, they overload with seven guys dropping. Our zone coverage isn't exactly airtight, but a lot of that is because we were simply teaching the same players the wrong cues last year. As a whole, I think we're a little tighter in the secondary than last year, and improving.

Schaub threw for better than 9 yards per attempt in this game, and our defensive numbers are going to look horrible for the second straight week, but we were one Andre Johnson jump ball away from having a winning defense for the second straight week.

It's not a shut down unit, and it probably won't be until they can figure out how to fit in Albert like they've figured out how to use Landry/Hall/Rogers in the same secondary. But I think it's safe to say that the concerns about our run defense were grossly exaggerated.

Re: Some positives from week 2

The players know and are willing to accept that they have areas to address. A far cry from the Caps' "don't know" and "hot goalie" excuses.

We made our mark in the trivia book AGAIN, as "Both quarterbacks threw for more than 400 yards, the first time that's happened in an NFL game since 1994."
