Sally Jenkins has an interesting column today on the new-look Redskins. She describes how team discipline has replaced false hope in the locker room and on the field.
The story also contained this nugget:
Through two games they are the most disciplined team in the NFL. They have committed fewer penalties, for fewer yards, than anyone in the league. They have been flagged just six times for 40 yards. Their opponents over the same two games? Try 18 penalties for 140 yards.
It has touched off some interesting comments. Here’s a noteworthy one by seth_malaguerra.
“Every off season the Skins do something to make a big splash - McNabb, Haynesworth, bring back Joe Gibbs, Deion, etc. This off season they tried something different - they brought in new attitudes. It was utterly splash-less but will produce better results than any off season acquisition ever could.”
What’s your take? Do you think the attitude change will stick?
