In today's Washington Post Michael Wilbon writes that he's seen enough of Mark Brunell. He also points out that two guys named Warner and Testaverde have outplayed the Redskins QB for three consecutive weeks. And while Brunell was dreadful for the first two games and all but 4 1/2 minutes of the last one, I don't think Patrick Ramsey is a marked improvement.
Changing gears a bit, was it just me or did Joe Gibbs really mismanage this game? Between questionable challenges and poor clock management, it was hard to tell the new ol' ball coach from the old ol' ball coach.
Just in case Sunday night did not make it clear, defense rules the NFL in 2016. The best teams in overall DVOA all combine top-five defenses with below-average offenses. The Eagles now lead the league in both defense and special teams and are back to No. 1 overall.
