HAIL REDSKINS FANS! 

      

So I'm Guessing My New Nickname is . . . . .

 
. . . Chicken Little after my “the sky is falling” update last week.  And while I admit that maybe, just maybe, I may have overreacted after one game, it was nice seeing the Skins play a complete game on both sides of the ball.  And given how well our fellow NFC East teams played, things may not be so bleak after all.
 
It was like watching vintage Redskins’ football on Sunday.  Run the ball, control the clock, play tough defense, and make enough passing plays to keep the chains moving.  The Skins ran the ball 39 times on Sunday . . . 39 times . . . let that sink in . . . for a total of 229 yards.  Quick math ‑ ‑ or slow math for those without a calculator ‑ ‑ tells you that is a 5.9 yards per rush!  Sunday was Gruden’s 50th game as HC, and in the games where we rush for 90 yards in a game, we are 15-2-1!  Once again, using our quick math skills, that tells you the team is a horrendous 7-25 when we DON’T rush for 90 yards.  On Sunday, this allowed the Skins to hold the ball for almost 40 minutes, and run 20 more plays than the Rams.  So, to paraphrase Jenny…”Run Redskins, Run!”
 
And no one benefitted from the run game more than Captain Kirk.  He completed 67% of his passes and threw one TD and ZERO INTs!  On the game‑winning drive, not only was he a perfect 3 for 3, but we scored a TD in the red zone.  Someone needs to show me how to do a cartwheel right now!
 
The Defense also looked much more physical on Sunday.  In Week One, they couldn’t get off the field, but LA was only 5-13 on third down conversions.  Manusky said his first priority is to stop the run, and the B&G did that on Sunday.  Todd Gurley scored a TD ‑ ‑ how did it feel to be a human hurdle, Breeland? ‑ ‑ but was kept in check most of the day.  Of course, the big play was Mason Foster’s victory sealing INT, but I have been really impressed with the play of LB Zach Brown.  I think he and Kerrigan are going to make a great tandem as the season wears on.
 
This week we take on the 2-0 Oakland Raiders on Sunday Night Football.  I am not sure what scares me more, Marshawn Lynch or playing in front of a national audience.  But, last season we played one of our most complete games on SNF when we beat the Packers, so I am going with Lynch.  If our Defense can contain him, like they did Gurley, I believe our secondary can cover the Raider receivers, and we can win.  If not . . . well, we all know what happened to Chicken Little.  <GULP>
