Come on Mike, no one is tearing anything down. We are just being realistic. No one said Pryor was a great QB, not one said the Raiders were anything other than what they are...a bad team who was missing their 2 leading rushers. That makes them and even worse team so I won't get all gushy with the effort our defense put together. We get 7 sacks against Dallas...I will sing from the mountain top! As for now, it was a win against a hapless team...I will be happy with it and remain realistic about who it was we beat.Because Pryor is a great qb to begin with?
We did what we needed to with a team lacking confidence.
Why do we always immediately try to disect and tear down good things?
Is it the fear of being happy even for a moment?
step in the right direction...no doubt. yea us.Mike asked in chat about the Raiders rushing D going into the game.
They were allowing 108.3 yards per game and 4.1 yards per attempt with a total of 2 rushing TDs against them and no runs of over 20 yards.
The Redskins had a net rushing yardage of 122 averaging 3.8 per attempt and 1 rushing TD.
What is interesting is what happened with the Raiders rushing offense.
Going into the game they were averaging 148.7 rushing yards per game, 5.3 yards per carry and had 3 rushing TDs so far this season. They also were leading the league with 9 rushes of 20 or more yards.
The Redskins held them to 104 net yards rushing, 4.0 yards per carry and no rushing TDs.
They had no rushes of 20 yards or more either.
Not too bad, defense.
