Ok, It's Official, I'm Impressed

Craig Garrison SrSenior Analyst IOctober 5, 2008

Redskins win in Philadelphia, 23-17.

4-1 after winning four in a row.

Two divisional road games in a row in arguably the best division in football.

The best team in football (Dallas Cowboys)? Down.

The best run defense in football (Philadelphia Eagles)? 203 yards rushing.

10 total points allowed in the fourth quarter in five games.

Nine minutes 11 seconds. Fourth-quarter time of possession against the Eagles.

Eight minutes 31 seconds, six minutes 30 seconds, 10 minutes 32 seconds, 13 minutes. Fourth-quarter time of possession in the fourth quarter of each of the last four games.

No offensive turnovers in five games.

Quarterback with NO turnovers in five games.

Ladies and gentlemen, these are the numbers of very good football team.

In my writing, I have preached patience for Redskins' fans. For those who took my advice, you are officially awarded with a 4-1 record having already completed all road games within the division.

Jim Zorn has become one the best coaches in football very quickly. As of now, not next week, not next month, but right now, there is no arguing how good this team is, and how good this coach.

It could all come apart next week.

But that's ok.

For now, the Redskins are just one damn good football team.

Good job coach!
