This is the positives thread. Yes believe it or not, statistics, and just watching the game there are actual positives that we can talk about.

After 3 games:
The Skins lead the league in scoring.
Red Zone scoring, we are at 66.67% (tied for 5th)
RGIII has the longest deep ball score.
We are #6 in total offense yards
RGIII has thrown only one INT, has a passer rating over 100 (103.5 or 6th best) Luck's for comparison sake is 75.4
We have the 2nd most rushing yards
We are 5/6 for FG's, missing only the 62 yarder.

The completion percentage against our defense is tied for 11th best with Pittsburgh at 60.9% ( we are way out of skew on yds allowed, so if we can tighten the ydge, the actual coverage is not as bad as the yardage implies)
Our rushing D is 9th best in the league

That's the positives from a stats point of view. But there also are some intangibles that need to be mentioned, not the least is RGIII and what he brings in terms of game awareness.

While he hasn't led a comeback win yet, as JR mentioned elsewhere, I don't doubt that every single person wasn't holding his/her breath to see if we could march down the field and tie the game with <2 minutes left. I am pretty firmly convinced that once the game flow gets back to normal (refs I'm looking at you), we won't see the last second loss of composure that showed up in the last 2 games, although I hope someone asks Davis where he was going on the play that got the initial False Start.

Also in the intangibles, for as many yards as our D has given up, they have also had some critical 3 and outs that put the Offense in the position to tie or take the lead, not everyone was followed by offensive execution but, there are areas to build on.

So,
Again
Negative Nellies not needed

People with Positive Posts, please reply.
You're right. The D handed the O the ball at mid-field with the game tied at 24 and the O couldn't score a point in the 4th quarter against the Rams. Should have been a DTD on the Wilson fumble recovery, but whatever.

It will all come together. Skins will be compelling for years to come.

1) QB,RG111 . 2) RB Morris ( both rookies ) .3) Strong WR/s and TE's . 4) Left Tackle T Williams . Strong play / depth at LB . I see us being a pro bowl type OL , and a top CB away from being one of the NFC's top teams . Many of the top qb's are nearing the end of their careers , we should have RG111 for another decade !!

Re: Positives - What Positives You Ask?

Great thread "C"! There really isn't much not to be optimistic about. We'll see better results the more Bob plays and I'm sure we'll see upgrades in our secondary and oline within the next year. The future looks bright my friend. Did I mention we lead the league in scoring? The Washington Redskins lead the league in scoring! Holy ****!!!

Not sure about the "strong" receiving corp but agree with every thing else. Most inspired; the O-line is inconsistent but our offense is very potent.

Re: Positives - What Positives You Ask?

I think the distinction between a strong or weak WR corps is the QB. We have a good QB who makes any decent WR look good if they run good routes. If anything, we have outstanding blocking WRs.

IMO we have WR's that suit our system and that's what you need.

Re: Positives - What Positives You Ask?

I just read that Dezmon Briscoe is inactive today. They really need to start playing this guy. Briscoe is a red zone threat and can come up with jump balls in the end zone.

^ Too bad he can't play DB, that's where we need help. We've been fine in the redzone on offense.
