Each and every year we go through a rebirth process, and some years it’s more painful than others. We’re not where we should be after six games, so it’s back to the drawing board. At least we don’t have a “Quarterback Issue” anymore; coaches Gruden chose Kirk Cousins to start this season because he believes Kirk gives us the best change to win. We do however have some other stability issues to iron out before the Redskins start running on all twelve cylinders.
Often in a loss there are so many positive aspects of the game that it makes losing a lot more easy, and Sunday’s game was a good example. Several facts about the game give me reason to be proud about the team’s performance::
Washington proved it can compete with any team
The Redskins defense played well considering a injured secondary
Our defense held Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan to zero touchdown passes and intercepted him twice
The Redskins defensive effort caused and recovered a fumble
Three total turnovers for the Skins defense, plus the sacks and constant QB pressure
