You really think we 'just got lucky'? I think that's a curious way of looking at it. The Redskins had a comfortable lead and made mistakes in the 2nd half that certainly made it easier for the Rams to make a run at coming back. But the Redskins made the stops when they had to, they scored enough points that it was the Rams driving for a tying score with time running down, not the Redskins. What does luck have to do with any of that?Well my Theisman jersey MUST be lucky - 'cause I didn't wear it last week and luck is the ONLY thing that let us win this week. I'm not saying we didn't do enough to win it. But I AM saying we did enough to loose it, too.
They capitilized on it today fan - we won, remember? They made more mistakes than we did, and they couldn't capitalize on the mistakes we made.boone...when the other team is self destructing good teams capitalize on that and put the lesser lights away. for two consecutive weeks now...the Skins haven't done that. I do believe that is what people are thinking when they speak about luck.
You're fine DS - you don't have anything to 'regret'. I know what you meant. I'm just making it my mission to combat the idea that, when we do win it's because the other team sucked or due to Divine Intervention, but when we lose, it's all about our lack of talent and flawed players.I hear ya, Boone. But I have to tell you, I'm happier if we loose and play well than if we win & stink it up. There was a lot of stinking today. The other two wins, not so much.
My problems aren't with "oops, m'bad" kinda mistakes, like D Hall's coverage on that fateful 3rd down. It's with fundamental mistakes in theory and design that are the problems which will doom your team. LIke not having the safety overhead to stop the 1st down. It's not Rex's pics, it's that they're consistently at times when we shouldn't be focused on throwing - or forced into incredibly overcovered routes while viable short options are ignored. It's in a grounding overthrow when a skip to the down RB would suffice.
I regret ever making the "lucky jersey" joke [no, I don't! hehe]. I'm talking about how this style of win won't last against better competition than one of the worst teams in the league.
