posted a thread on what it may take to reach playoffs, "Targets to hit in 2012", so lets see how we did in week one;
Points / game > 24.4 we had 40 Check
Plays from Scrimage > 1068 is ave 66.75/game we had 70 Check
Yards / game > 381 we had 464 yards Check
!st downs per game > 21.4 we had 22 Check
3rd down % > 41.9 we had 4/15 = 27 % needs improvement
Penalties < 92 ave 5.75/game we had 12 needs improvement
Penalty yards < 780 ave 49/game we had 127 needs improvement
Time of Pos > 30:09 we had 39:10 Check
Turnover (net) > positive 10 ave .625/game we had 3 Check
so the Redskins have definitely improved in many areas, but still need to fix some gaps to have a playoff position.
I am very happy with a win, but the most telling thing to me was the effort of long snapper Nick Sundberg, we have some very motivated stars that get very little cheers in a year, playing a 1/2 with a broken arm to support HIS TEAM tells me we have great people on this team. HTTR all, lets see how we do in St. Louis.
