Redskins Insider Archive: Statistical analysis

Statistical analysis: Wrapping up the 2010-11 season

Analyzing the Redskins each week was more difficult than I imagined. On the field, they were uninteresting in almost every way. All the drama was off the field, with the coach, the quarterback, and a certain defensive lineman taking turns playing lead in the soap opera that was the 2010-11...

Statistical analysis: Donovan McNabb wasn't responsible for Redskins' offensive woes

Donovan McNabb had the third best season of his career in 2009 with the Eagles. Needless to say, the results weren't so great as a Redskin in 2010, and he was unceremoniously benched at the end of the season by Mike Shanahan and his son Kyle in favor of Rex...

There is no question where the Redskins need to start rebuilding for next season. It's clearly the offensive line, and pass blocking in particular.

Statistical analysis: Hunter Smith's production

Hunter Smith was purportedly released by the Redskins for his punting and not for his flubbed hold on the failed extra point that would have sent Sunday's game into overtime. It's true that Smith's gross distances were below his career average and near the bottom of the league this season,...

Statistical analysis: Not too soon for a post-mortem

With Sunday's loss, the Redskins' chances of making the playoffs have nearly evaporated. Their forthcoming schedule put them at approximately a 1-in-200 shot. Although they're not mathematically eliminated, everything would have to go their way from here through Week 17. It's not too soon to begin the post-mortem. The Redskins'...

Statistical analysis: A sliver of playoff hope

With the loss to Minnesota, the Redskins' playoff chances hang by the proverbial thread. They need to win all their remaining games to be assured of a spot, but going 4-1 down the stretch would keep their hopes alive. In total I estimate they have a 2 percent chance of...
