The next big test for this team will be to play an inferior team and see whether we have overcome our bad habit of playing down to our competition. And then the bigger test will be to see how the team handles the competitiveness of the NFC East.

In this game, I didn't see some of the same ol' deficiencies this team has and we outright beat a solid playoff caliber team. It is possible that we still will end up with a losing season. But this team has taken a huge step forward and it may have the talent to have a winning record.
Going into the final two NFL games tonight, the Redskins are ranked #1 in the NFL in total offense.

Re: Redskins at Saints Post Game Thoughts

I think one of the bigger concerns that I haven't heard people mention is the 3rd down efficiency. We went 4-15 on 3rd down conversion and a lot of those 3rd downs were 3rd and 5 or shorter. I hope we can improve upon that in the upcoming games.

The difference being that Campbell didn't look like a bonifide star right out of the gate.

Let me point out some other differences:
Poor accuracy beyond dink and dunk passes, especially on anything long
Slow release long wind up
Happy feet, and tendency to throw off of his back heel
No feel for the rush
No clock in his head
Not a mobile QB despite being scouted as one
Complete inability to slide
Sometimes "scrambled" when there was no pressure and ran into needless sacks
Couldn't throw the ball away when he was running out of bounds
One handed grasp on the ball when moving in the pocket
Ball at his hip (gunslinger style) while looking down field.

I would say there are some slight differences...

Even beyond Campbell, the team as a whole perform better and didn't have the usual deficiencies from the past. The o-line protected, WRs caught passes, the defense put pressure on the opposing team's passing game, and we won the turnover batter.

Not only that Campbell wasn't winning those games, the defense was. That entire stretch he was just what he eventually became: a game manager. Griffin truly made plays HIMSELF that were huge differences in the game.

I remember that - even after the first 4 games, there were many analysts still arguing whether Campbell and the Redskins were the real deal or not.

After one game, I don't think there is anyone questioning whether Griffin is for real. There's reason for that - Griffin was consistently making plays, accurate throws, and also not making many mistakes.

Closer look at some things. Raves about Kerigan's play.

RG3 played his ass off. Not only did he make some outstanding plays, he showed a feel for the rush. He showed some pocket awareness. The game wasn't too big for him. However, teams are going to adjust and he will have some rough spots, like every rookie QB does.

Re: Redskins at Saints Post Game Thoughts

As far as that is concerned, I'm a bit concerned about the more stellar defenses that this Redskins offense will face this season. The Ravens, the Steelers, the Eagles, and Cowboys all have very good defenses. I'm overlooking the NYG already because Rex Grossman had magical performances against them last season. If Grossman could scorch the Giants defense, what do you think RG3 will do to them?

I'm more concerned with the Cowboys and Ravens.

For now the Redskins are ranked #1 in the NFL in total offense and 16th in defense. I'm very proud of the coaches and the players. This team could be very special this year.
Brees would have thrown for 300 plus yards playing from behind against any team in the NFL. He will give Defenses opportunities though, and the Skins could have done a better job of making him pay. Linebacker or not, Orakpo needs to catch that ball, and I believe there was at least one other ball that should have been picked off. We could have totally demoralized him and won going away. Nevertheless, it was an awesome, awesome win!

I remember thinking the Skins were winning despite Campbell, not because of him. The games were low scoring squeakers... nothing like what we saw yesterday. Anything is possible, but yesterday had all the markings of a dramatic sea change in Washington. Many of us were predicting Campbell to be a career backup even when they were winning with him. Go ahead, check the archives

My only concern is that he saw contact on a few of those 10 runs. I hope to see him slide and get out of bounds instead. Kyle's play-calling and scheme were nearly perfect and easily his best so far. These guys have chemistry. My favs on Morris the horse and Robinson, though I think as the season progresses Davis will get more work than he did yesterday. Garcon too if he can stay healthy.

Defensively we are a force to be reckoned with. The front 7 is very stout run or pass. I think the secondary is performing at a high level based on great coaching/motivation. These guys play smart and aggressive and will earn a lot of respect from QBs/OCs over the season.
Dont worry about the hits so much - sometimes a guy who hangs in the pocket takes even more punishment. Unlike dumb vick this guy at least tries to get out of bounds and he throws the ball away. He is not at any greater risk than other qb's of getting hit. Maybe even less because of his illusiveness and smarts.

Look at what kind of points the saints gave up at home in the dome last year. Only gave up more than twenty points twice! That defense at home is not a joke.
