Exactly. The league has done everything in it's power to create parity since the days of Rozelle. All GM's and HC's are not the same. Some know how to build and coach better than others. Some owners are better equipped and have the ego to turn things over to those who are more qualified to run a team. Consistently losing close games is not much of an endorsement for a franchise. Especially the longer it goes on. BTW.....Your sig may be my all time favorite.

it tells me the opposite. Great teams finish games, great team don't lose close games they win by blowout.

Makes it sound like we're a lot better than our bad record indicates!

Re: This Skins Stat Says A Lot About Us

Basically when the day is done the Skins over the past decade have been a bad franchise. If you helps you sleep better at night that a lot of games were close so be it, but we are still a bad franchise.

We get a lead but know in our hearts it's not over because we have a history of allowing teams to come back and beat us. I appreciate your optimism and I would honestly be the last person to ask about my sister. Personally I would rather kiss my Jack Russell.
See this is the thing about this thread; I said see how you interpret this stat. It can be interpreted in more than one way. (You and most people here see it as a negative; I and a couple others see some positives out of it)

I'm not much for the phrase garbage time, but the stat you made doesn't really reflect at all whether the game was close the whole way, or we just got garbage scores against prevent style defenses. I don't see a lot of use from just a blind number, good or bad.

Funny that you see it as a positive, since you were the same guy that wanted the team to tank for a better draft position in the past two seasons.

Re: This Skins Stat Says A Lot About Us

Think this can be a bit deceiving. A lot of games we only were close in (besides really last year) because defenses go to prevent which allows us to drive easier. The other ones, that we were in, of course, are because the team STILL doesn't play for four full quarters.

I wouldn't say I think this stat is a complete positive, but there are some positives to it. It's a two sided stat.

Your not gonna let that go are you? We would have been a better team for the future if we MS plan had worked. It back fired a couple times to get us out of the first overall pick range. Oh we'll it's in the past and I'm happy with griffin.

I'm not coming down on you CB...
You obviously put some time and effort into this. It's really a shame to go through all that to try and find a positive. Sounds like something Lions fans probably did through the Millen years. Any way you look at it we're not very good and coming close through the last few years doesn't change that. A good coach would.

Given your own negativity over the past two seasons, it surprised me that you seemed surprised at the negativity of others.

Anyway, it is hard for me to see this stat as a positive, when a lot of these close games have been against teams that are not good. I do want to say that now more than ever I think we have a future and better days are (hopefully) ahead. But I think at least this year we are going to continue with the same mantra of keeping games close against good and bad teams alike.

Re: This Skins Stat Says A Lot About Us

Losing is losing anyway you look at it.

There's no style points for coming close.

The Redskins have been a bad team because under Snyder's ownership the team has mostly been a damn circus. 7 head coaches in 12 years. Firing Norv Turner when the Redskins were still in playoff contention, firing Marty Schottenheimer after a dramatic turnaround, hiring Steve Spurrier who was not qualified to be a head coach in the NFL, and hiring Zorn as an offensive coordinator with no head coach and then giving him head coaching duties that he wasn't qualified for. It's all decisions like these that have held this franchise back.

Thanks a lot, Mr. Snyder. While the Steelers, Giants, and Patriots play in Super Bowls year after year we Redskins fans are buried deep in our own crap because of the decisions of Daniel Snyder.

Always the easy thing to do, just blame Snyder
