On the other hand, Redskins are 8-1 against the Panthers (I think)

Bottom line, if Cam is able to get some confidence and hit Smith on some deep balls we will be in trouble. He gets hot and he just turns into a different guy. making throws all over the field, running around, and then the offense in general gets hot. They have two VERY capable running backs and we couldn't stop one capable running back last week. Two decent TE in shockey and Olson which Carolina has finally figured out they need to use them.

I hope no one is overlooking these guys. They have been competative with everyone they have played this year. Scores may not indicate it, but they have played hard and passionate football this season (missing key starters) just given up points late in games that deflated them.
Neither stewart or williams compare to McCoy. Hell, add them up and they dont compare. Leshawn (SP?) is one of the most dynamic and dangerous players in the game.

Now having said that our D needs to have a very good game as if Cam gets going it is going to be a tough day for our LBs and DBs as he has arm strength and speed.

I understand Cam is a lot better than I expected him to be out of the gate, but we have film on him, he has to be coming back to reality, and I expect our D to guide him to it. The question remains can the offense do something when they have the ball against an underwhelming defense. I believe we can.

OLD Redskins: Go down to Carolina and a Rookie QB has the game of his life and makes a mockery of the skins with highlights played all year long on sportscenter.

NEW Redskins: Go down to Carolina and beat a team you shpuld beat fairly easily with few mistakes.

Im 5-0 this year on gut feelings, Skins should rebound but i cant get a good feel on this one.

Before the Panthers sported Cam Newton at the helm. He creates a whole new dynamic that NFL defenses are not used to or prepared for. Like with Michael Vick. Except a better passer. Even vs. a young Vick.

Smoot was right, 0-6 since 05 v. rookie QBs:

Redskins vs. rookie QBs -- no contest

That has got to be karma for drafting so poorly & not having a franchise qb! Time to turn it around

D Williams may not be as good as McCoy but he's still a good rb

Random stat that doesnt really mean much IMO. Its more of a sign we've been a bad team for some time now.

Agreed on the latter part of your statement, but it's not really a random stat. If nothing else, it shows that you can't take a rookie qb lightly. I'm sure Shanny & Haslett will be using this as motivation.

Re: The Redskins are headed South Fast....To Carolina that is.

Freddy, so you think the Skins have systemically been "relaxing" the weeks they face rookie quarterbacks? Or that when we play rookies the football gods tilt the game in the favor of the rookies? No. We have lost a ton of games and nothing "special" occurs when we play rookies.

A correlation does not mean causation. The sample is way too low and even if it were high doesn't mean much. Ex. people with more literature in their houses tend to have more successful children. Does that mean if you buy a ton of books and leave them in your house your child will be better off? No. Educated folks tend to push their children harder, have access to better opportunities for their kids, etc. therefore their children tend to succeed too. Their kids may love to read, but just reading or access to books isn't what determines success (citation:Freakanomics).

Same applies here. A more telling stat is that since our last Superbowl appearance Skins have been 131-172-1. That is a win percentage a bit over 43% out of 304 games. We aren't even a coin-flip team and this organization has had systemic issues the last 2 decades. Over the long run, with a .57 losing percentage losing 6 games isn't anything. There are so many other variables in each of those games that are not isolated to make any conclusions about an opponents years of experience impacting the win/loss. It's just another pointless "stat" that doesn't show anything.
