- Washington (C+?) has beaten Miami (F), Philly (C-), Detroit (A) and Arizona (C) but lost to New England (A+), Green Bay (A) and the Giants (A). Overall, taking Adam at his word, we've beaten one very good team, three pretty bad ones, but have yet to lose to a bad team.
- Kansas City (B+?) has beaten Minnesota (D), San Diego (B), Cincy (F), and Oakland (C-) but lost to Houston (C-), Chicago (F), and Jacksonville (A). Overall they've beaten only San Diego of consequence, a worse win than Detroit per Adam, and have lost to some really bad teams, per Adam. And yet they're a stronger team than the Redskins?
- Carolina (B+?) has beaten St. Louis (F), Atlanta (F), New Orleans (C+), and Arizona (C) but lost to Houston (C-), Tampa Bay (C+) and Indy (A+). Overall they've beaten no one of consequence, and split losses between really good teams, per Adam, and not-so-good ones, per Adam.
Taking him at his word on the "last 3 weeks" theory, the Redskins defense looked great against both Arizona and Green Bay. As he pointed out in the latter game, against a team he thinks very highly of, Santana Moss lost it, not the Redskins D. As for almost losing to Arizona, Kansas City didn't "almost" lose to Chicago (but did almost lose to Oakland, C-, 12-10 last week) and Carolina didn't "almost" lose to Housto, and both those teams are ranked below the Arizona Cardinals, per Schein.
