other than a couple plays we werent calling so the defense could keep 8-9 in the box every play... the playcalling was way different than the last few weeks cause we purposefully went deep even with good coverage and tried trick plays we haven't been using. the scheme was different and it helped.

Re: Approval Rating???

Gibbs and his staff are a class act. The players respect the coaches and now they are starting to play together as a team. We showed the NFL what the skins can do if they
play their best ball. This is the perfect time to get hot. Would not be surprised if we win out and make the playoffs. Super Bowl would be a stretch this year, but this year
has been hard to predict.
Go skins!

Before we were way to predictable, running on first and second and giving ourselves only one chance to pass for a first on third down.

I think Gibbs is learning that its impossible to dominate this NFL on the ground the way it was in the 80's - that you need to do things like pass on first down. They are giving our offense opportunities to make big plays without deviating from their conservative principles, and I think its working.
We still ran the ball on first down, and that is going to be our strength if we are to make the playoffs or at least win out this season. When we're running the ball effectively on first and second down, that opens the passing up that much more, so then mixing it up later and throwing a couple passes on first and second down is easier to do than to just do it for the sake of not being able to run the ball effectively on those downs. I believe it comes down to execution. When players execute the plays well, the coach finds it easier to mix up his playcalling - that is what happened against the Cowboys. If our players come out and once again execute well, it is very tough to defend against Joe Gibbs' playcalling. The Dallas game was a prime example. Of course, it also helps when the defense is being as dominate as what they were. It's going to be tougher against the Giants this week though. They have a great running game, and we have to slow it down. If we can get on top early like we did against Dallas, then it is going to force the Giants to throw more, and I think that puts us at an advantage even though our secondary is still beat up.
