Anyone else notice...Santana Moss is quietly on pace to tie his 2nd-best season reception total since 2005 -84-(only year better was last year at 93) and 2nd-best season TD total since 2005 -8- (2005 total was 10). But its not really the stats that stand out to me, its the fact that he truly evolved into a sure catch in a clutch (except for that one play) situation. Whether its him catching the ball four yards short, knowing where the first-down marker is, and juking / spinning / diving / stretching for it; or its a 4th and 3 and his spectacular route running pays off with a go-ahead TD. Even the media, who almost never mention anything positive about the Redskins or their players, rave about his evolution as one of the most precise and disciplined route-runners in the game today, which to me deserves more credit to our success this year.
Anyone else notice...Rex Grossman is on currently on pace to crush his season-best yard and TD totals which were his Super Bowl appearance year BUT is also on pace to tie his INT total for that year as well. To me, this means we should expect to have some great games, and some not-so-great games from him...wait...we already expected this...well, at least he made it to the Super Bowl that year! I incur that our D is at least as good as the 2006 Bears D. And our three-headed monster (HighHellTrain, lol) has the potential to be just as effective as Thomas Jones was by himself that year. What do you think?
Anyone else notice...This is the best punter we've had since 1998 (Matt Turk). Matt Turk had 33 punts inside the 20 that year. This year, Sav is on pace for 48. By the way, Rocca after four games already has 12 punts inside the 20 and that's good enough for first.
That's all of my notices for today but I just want to add that this is not meant to be a "I think I'm more attentative than you" piece. It's merely to strike a discussion and see if others are seeing what I'm seeing. Or at least pondering what I'm pondering. Also, this is my last post as FanInKorea, as I've left the military after 7 years and am back home in MD now. New handle is BGPride. Thanks for reading!
