It’s 5 o’clock somewhere...

The most common question I have been asked this week is some form of, “Is the Redskins defense good...or is there some other way more plausible explanation?” In response to that, let me tell you a story. Two roommates named Joey and Chandler once turned on their television and they discovered that they were somehow receiving free adult pay-per-view (I cast no judgement on their perverse preferences). They were torn about what to do: turn off the television and risk capsizing this super yacht of a gift, or settle in for around-the-clock viewing. In many ways, this Redskins defense is like that free adult pay-per-view that Joey and Chandler all of a sudden just started getting for free. Like our friends, Joey and Chandler, maybe instead of rocking the boat with all these questions, we should just settle in for some top-notch programming.

Now let’s hear all of your plausible explanations for what’s behind this defensive resurgence...(SPOILER ALERT: there’s, like, a hundred right answers).
