    This to me is the most exciting bit.

    Our D-line is young and relatively inexperienced. Allen got only a handle of games before going out last year. Payne is a rookie. Yet they bottled up one of the leagues best running backs.

    Dunbar and co are a young secondary, and performed admirably. (Note: When I predicted the score in the Keys to the Game thread, I had assumed that we could bottle up Johnson, but figured that with our young secondary and with Larry Fitzgerald back there even Bradford would be able to do us some damage. I was wrong about that!)

    This is the first ACTUAL game experience that Smith has had with Reed and CT... and they looked like they'd been doing this for years.

    AP has only been with us for what... 3 weeks! And already he's making a huge difference on this offence.

    AND... that's only game 1!

    The potential is clearly there. If we can avoid key injuries these players should only get better as they get more comfortable with the NFL (for the rookies and Allen) and as the team gets to play more together.
    Last night felt like we scratched the surface of our potential.

    I am, as usual, very optimistic.

    I hope that means Harris will be ready next week.
    Reed and Davis can play wideout in a pinch if there's multiple injuries in a game.
    Davis did in the Cards game.
    By the way, Reed actually looked good blocking.

And late in the game when Arizona made a few drives, they'd already emptied the bench so they were playing our 2nd team more or less. Not sure how much of that is true, I wasn't paying close attention to who was on and off.

    But it might explain things.
    The best defense is a good running game.

    I didn't get to see it (let go of Sunday Ticket over the winter and Dallas played late) so I don't know much other than we nearly blanked these guys.

    Color me cautiously optimistic. Especially with the defense and Smith. Maybe even the play calling.

    How strange.

    Only 1 game in but it's nice to see our rankings and contemplate just how good we may be.

    Guess who has the #1 rushing attack and #6 total offense

    Not to forget the #2 total defense!!!

    Inclement weather took out wifi and DirecTV here, reports of the game look good but I reserve judgement for those who watched. I'm pissed I missed the game and chat, stupid freaking storms.

    I watched this game and the Cowboy game with a Cowboy fan...nice to be the happy one for a change. They looked like crap on offense. Granted it was against a tough D but the Skins winning and the Cowboys losing is pretty tough to beat.

    I would be foolish to try to turn RGIII into a pocket passer. It would be foolish. The way he is as a runner, we have to take advantage of that. He strikes fear into defensive coordinators when he runs outside. I'm going to let him be himself. -Jay Gruden Jan. 2014
