It appears as though the preseason success from the Redskins has blended into a successful beginning of the regular season for Washington. Now all of the “It’s only Pre Season” talks are turning into “It’s only week 2″ talks. It’s a very sad thing to hear from people who claim to be true fans of the sport but I guess this is something that will never change.
If you scroll back to my season preview, I stated that the Redskins had a legit chance of being undefeated going into the week 6 match up vs Philadelphia. As of right now, the Redskins are 2-0 (1-0 2-0). That breakdown for the standings illiterate means the Redskins are 2-0 overall, 1-0 in their division and 2-0 in their conference. Since no other conference team is undefeated in their division or the NFC, the Redskins are sitting pretty atop the NFC Conference. That feels extremely good to say because real football fans know that making the playoffs can come down to one game. Check out the standings here for yourself.
Already, the Redskins have closed out a division rival and came from behind to beat a solid conference opponent when it didn’t look too promising. I don’t care what you say, you can’t ignore how clutch pulling out these wins were and nobody predicted the Redskins (except me) to be where they are right now. Player of the game to me goes to Roy Helu. Reason being is he stepped up when it mattered the most, the 2nd half. He gained key yardage and kept drives alive which gave us numerous opportunities to score. Fred Davis had yet another solid day of work.(Looks like I’m going to have to bench Vernon and play Mr. Fred Davis in my fantasy league.) Rexy regrouped and managed the game very well from a shaky beginning. The defense played as solid as you can ask for given the type of offensive threats Arizona presents. It looks as though those solid pre season reps for the back up secondary came in handy in the 4th quarter after Wilson and Barnes went down with injuries. The Redskins held off Arizona when it mattered the most, forcing a fumble to close out the win!
Overall, a win is a win and we have two of them. Good job Redskins, your supporters are here stronger than ever! Enjoy your current spot as the head of the class…
