Skins by the Numbers

The Redskins have risen to sixth in the NFL in total offense, fifth in rushing yards per game and 12th in passing offense. Jason Campbell remains the only starting QB who has not thrown an interception. The Skins and undefeated Titans remained tied for the league lead with a plus-6 turnover ratio.

Defensively, the Skins rank 13th overall (ninth against the run, 21st against the pass). Those numbers are deceiving, though. They have faced elite passing teams and largely shut them down, eliminating big plays and keeping them out of the end zone with any regularity. A better barometer is scoring defense, and the Skins rank 11th in the league in points allowed (and even that includes two punt returns for TDs, so in reality they are in the upper echelon in points allowed on defense excluding special teams).

Campbell is ranked eighth in the NFL with a 96.7 passer rating. He has a fourth-quarter passer rating of 115.4, seventh best overall.

Clinton Portis ranks second in the NFL with 514 rushing yards. His 4.5 per carry average is well above what's he has produced the last three years. His four rushing TDs are tied for third in the league. Even after being blanked on receptions Sunday, WR Santana Moss is still seventh in the NFL with 421 receiving yards.

Coach Jim Zorn's willingness to go for it on fourth down is paying off - Washington is fifth in the league in fourth-down conversion percentage.

Opposing teams are starting at the 22.2 yard line on kickoffs, putting the Skins second in the NFC.

It's a great time to be a Skins fan. Seems like the team is firing on all cylinders right now! Gotta love it! Two road wins against division rivals. Didn't get to see the game as I was lost in a corn maze but I did get constant txt updates from a buddy. Quite a few yells from the middle of the maze with the final score txt!
HTTR!!

For how pretty the wins have looked, seems like the rank in the various league categories would be higher ... which is to say that Jim Zorn (and the team as whole) have been playing only "pretty well" ... and been doing much better in the most important category ... winning games.

This is a reminder for the haters who wanted to throw JC underthe bus a few weeks ago. I think it's worth a repost!

The Skins offense has been stagnant for about a decade. Do you want Brunell back? Think Collins is the answer? How about Ramsey? Maybe we can talk Heath Shuler out of politics?

All you JC haters need to get a grip. His play is very comparable to Eli Manning, inconsistent but promising. And Eli's had a lot more stability in his career. Let's see where JC is by week 8 before ya'll start whining to turn the team over to another over-the-hill vet or unproven QB who takes another 4 years to develop.

Facts:

-Dating back to last season, the Redskins are now 8-1 in their last 9 regular season games.

-The Redskins returned 20 of 22 starters from last season, losing one to a murder (RIP ST), the other to a season ending ACL tear (Phillip Daniels). They were replaced by the NFL Defensive rookie of the month (Horton) and a former NFL DPOY (Jason Taylor, 2006).

-The Redskins are now 4-1 in their last 5 divisional match-ups, beating each division rival at least once, and only losing to the Giants on the road.

-The Redskins have now played the #1, #3, #4, #5, and #9 offenses in the league (NYG, NO, DAL, ARI, and PHI respectively). Every time, the Redskins defense has held the opposing team to its lowest yardage total of the season. Every time except once (against Philly), the Redskins held the team to their lowest point total for the season.

-The Redskins are the only team in the league to be finished with its road divisional matchups by week 5.

-Combined opponents record when NOT playing the Redskins: 14-4 (one of those losses came because the two opponents were playing each other, DAL vs PHI). Combined opponents record when playing the Redskins 1-4.

How anybody can say this is NOT one of the top 3 teams in the league is baffling right now.

I hope the Redskins rip them apart when they play them again at FedEx, but I have a feeling that by that time Kevin Kolb will be the QB in Philly.

The most impressive thing is the offenses that this defense has faced, and subsequently shut down. Blatche deserves a TON of credit for shutting teams down like he has.

I loved seeing Thomas get 2 passes thrown his way yesterday. Throw him MORE, throw more to Kelly, and Davis too....I think this offense has so much more potential.

Actually, Sally does know fubball and she'll do some Redskins columns soon, I promise you. She just got back from reporting a story on Sarah Palin in Alaska.

And think back to February: Nobody knew anything about Zorn; we weren't in the hiring meetings so we had no idea how he interviewed. It was a curious hire, to say the least. But you have to credit Snyder and Cerrato for seeing something there.

Posted by: CindyBoren | October 6, 2008 10:38 AM

That's exactly the point, Cindy: no one from the Post was in the hiring meetings and no one knew anything. So how can Sally Jenkins come away with all the hatred, derision, and condescension that she put into her column? She had no facts, no information, only prejudice.

Sure, she's entitled to her opinion, but when she's proven wrong she ought to have the guts to step up and admit it. Instead she's taking her prejudice to Alaska to try to gun down Sarah Palin? What sport is she covering now?

The Redskins are the only team as far back as I can remember that dominates on defense but near seems to get a sack. I know the get pressure sometimes but think about it. How many times do you see the opposing QB's with days to throw and someone breaks up the play. It's amazing how well the backfield is playing.

People stop with this is a trap game, Philly was supposed to be a trap game as well. This team is focused and good teams blow out team like the Rams, no trap game the Rams suck and I do not care if they brought Vince Lombardi back from the dead, they will be smashed on Sunday.

Brooks is not the greatest punter but do not blame that return on him yesterday the return team needs to make tackles, they had guys in position they just missed the tackles.

He had a 49 yard punt that was fair caught and the other punts were close to the 50 so 30 something yards is not bad.

Gotta give credit where its due. JLa has annoyed me with his negative observations in the past. But when the team is winning and playing well, he is also willing to derive something from a stat. He did not have to take the above stat even further to show a positive. Kudos. Now, IF, and lets keep it at IF, this team makes the playoffs AGAIN. That will be 3 out of 4 seasons and time for JLa to write the Big SCHLURP SCHLURP article about Vin/Dan...

That is the issue they are good enough to blow bad teams out that is what good teams do, that is what Gibbs 1.0 did.

Just because we have not seen it here in a while, does not mean Zorn will not be ready to crush a team if he smells blood he will pour it on.

I dunno about Rock, I would hate to run him and lose him as KR, but I think its an okay idea. I also say get playing time for the Rookies the next 3 games when we can. A rotation of players, think every other drive Moss and Thomas swap out allong with Kelly and El inversly, it would hurt some stats for our stars but ends up with them kinda getting 1.5 days off if you think of it some ways.

Can't WAIT for JLC to publicly admit that Vinny and Dan made a good hire with Zorn and that Vinny's draft is shaping up pretty well so far (liked Thomas today; Horton started and did alright). Of course, now he'll say that you can't judge a draft until 2-3 years down the road, which he only says when things are going well for the 'skins' rookie class.

It's so much fun to see the 'skins win in general, and picturing JLC eating crow is just one small part of the joy.

Plus, if anybody's getting snaps to mop up, it's gotta be the kid QB, right? Gotta feed the Cult of Colt, sell some jerseys, stoke the fire of QB controversy, and keep our Hawai'i fan base engaged.

And... if someone else is in at QB to finish a game because we're winning so big, that's all well and good, but it would rob me of my favorite play in this offense, the Jason Campbell kneel-down as time expires in a win.

Posted by: BeantownGreg

I agree. The fact that he's been able to do it with a depleted defense says volumes as well. Either a hobbled or scratched Jason Taylor, hobbled or scratched Marcus Washington, twice scratched Shawn Springs, fresh-off injury Carlos Rogers, fresh-off injury Rocky Macintosh, (blessing in disguise) illness to Reed Doughty, Blache has made no excuses and just came out and made it work. A ton of credit has to go to the reserves as well; Evans, Wilson, Smoot, Torrence, Blades, Horton (not really a reserve anymore). These guys can fill in in a pinch. I'm loving Blache's ability to adapt right now. Just imagine what can be done when these guys actually get healthy. This team can be scary good in the near future.

The reason I'm excited as the biggest Redskin Fan in South Florida (I was the only kid in my grade school rooting for the Skins against the Dolphins in 1972....Thanks Riggo for revenge 10 years later) is that Zorn and crew are getting this done with major guys out on defense, and no input from the rookie receivers...yet.
When we get healthy and Zorn and JC add more plays...LOOKOUT!!! Toughest part of the schedule behind us. I don't know about karma, but every time the G-men win Superbowl, the Skins win it the next year...86/87....90/91.....08/????
