Washington Redskins: Analysis and Observations Against the Giants

The New York Giants are a better football team than the Redskins. There’s nothing wrong with that either.

They are the defending Super Bowl champions and were coming off a very impressive win against the 49ers.

The Redskins on the other hand are one dimensional. Robert Griffin and his new look offense have taken the NFL by storm, but the defense is on pace to break an NFL record for passing yards given up.

All of that considered, the Redskins proved to the NFL that they can keep up with anyone, even a team as superior as the Giants.

The Skins had four crucial turnovers, a couple boneheaded plays from Leonard Hankerson, an “illegal motion” from Fred Davis that negated a touchdown, one phantom “leg sweep” penalty and still were in position to win the game with less than two minutes to play.

Losses like this have gone increasingly frustrating, but it is at least motivating to the team know that they can compete with top-tier franchises.

Anyway, here are my evaluations from last Sunday’s 27-23 loss in New York. As always, this is written in a note-like form. (Just a disclaimer)
