So, how are we doing compared to last year? Here is what the numbers say...

I decided to review the progress our offense has made up to this point as compared to last year. I thought that you guys may be interested to know that we have now scored more points than we did all of last year. Even better, last year at this point we had allowed 25 more points than we had scored. This year we have scored 8 more than we have allowed.

Our defense has given up 32 more points than it had at this time last year, but our offense has scored 72 points more than it had at this point. Guys, I think that this is significant progress by our coaching staff.

Further, in the last 6 games, when the Skins said they started impelmenting the changes to the offense, we averaged 18.17 points per game. This year we are averaging 20.08 points per game.

At this point last year we were 4 and 8. This year 6 and 6.

I think we are making good progress and I expect us to really be a classic Gibbs team come 2007... not to mention we still have something to work for here in 2006!


2005 2006
US THEM US THEM
Total Year 240 265 241 233
At this point of the year 169 201 241 233

Yeah, thanks for the informative breakdown. The Skins, under Gibbs, are moving in the right direction.

HaHa... Yeah, I had a pretty cool spreadsheet, but I wasn't sure how to link it in. It all made sense when I wrote it. In summary: we are better and the scores prove it.

Re: So, how are we doing? Here is what the numbers say...

Great post Go Skins.
I usually do not like to look at stats to determine how well a team is playing, but in this case I like it.
Sometimes an above average team might have a tough schedule, like the Redskins, and lose several close games and their stats might not be great.
Then another team that has an easier schedule and their stats are inflated. So stats can be misleading.
I can look at a game a know if a team is playing well, despite the score and stats. The Redskins are MUUUUCH improved from the Spurrier embarrasment era.

6-6 isn't progress...if we cut down on mistakes and turnovers then I would be inclined to agree with you.

6-6 against a harder schedule isn't progress from 6-10? I'd have to disagree with you there.

We went from 4-8 to 6-6. Isn't that the very definition of progress for that stat?

As far as progress, generally, our offense has gotten better in every category, while our defense remains in the top 10. That's progress.

If we end up 8-8 or 9-7, that is most definitely a HUGE improvement over last year especially once you consider the ridiculous schedule we've played.

Anyone trying to argue that we aren't a better now than at this point last year is delusional. Every stat including the one that some people (with good reason) point out as the only one that matters, wins and losses, has improved. Were are 2 wins/17% "better". And against a more difficult schedule. Of the secondary stats(ie: offensive and defensive stats) we have improved in every notable offensive category while weakening a bit in almost as many defensive categories. Injuries have taken a beating on the defense plus the loss of Pierce and Smoot has adjusted our depth a bit. I'd say overall though it is clear our offense has gotten better more than our defense has gotten worse. We're better overall plain and simple. Now hopefully we continue to improve and turn this improvement into something that matters like 4 more wins.

I think that we miss Pierce alot more on D than we thought we would. He was the leader of our D and spent long hours in the film room which has hurt our D. I think Williams will realize that it has hurt our D and do a better job to remedy this problem. I was one who thought he would strugle in the Giants system and that Williams would have no problem replacing him but I was wrong.

Ahhhh, the beauty of free agency!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think Pierce is missed. However, I think Williams, and the boys knew EXACTLY how much, and what problems it would cause.
They weighed the variables, and issues and collectively ELECTED to let him go. Everything that goes on within the organization, right or wrong is planned, practiced, discussed, cussed, hashed, rehashed, etc. It ain't no coin toss
