the Redskins individual offensive stats on the surface would lead you to believe this is a team that is a clear playoff contender. What the stats don't show you is when in each game the stats are accumulated and how the productivity of the offense falls off significantly in the fourth quarter. It really is a strange situation, among the strangest I have seen in watching this team for over 30 years:
Moss: #4 in NFC with 63 catches for 1,053 yards and 6 touchdowns.
Portis: #4 in NFC with 222 carries for 944 yards and 5 touchdowns.
Brunell: #5 in NFC with over 2,300 yards, 15 touchdowns and 5 interceptions.
You of course have to factor in the turnovers on sacks and hits that we have seen from Brunell and Portis putting the ball on the ground.
But, overall the numbers suggest our skill players do have sufficient talent to be starters on a playoff club.
