Redskins turn game over to Bucs

I like to think that my alter ego and I provide thoughtful analysis about the Redskins and football. That's why "we" pay attention to stats. The answers and the tendencies are revealed by the numbers.

It's also a truism that stats don't mean anything. The score is the only stat that matters.

Could today's 19-13 loss to the Buccaneers prove that any better? The Skins dominated the Bucs, statistically, in the second half while the game was in reach. Their effort was undercut by turnovers from the first quarter to the last.

Bet there's a mathmatic formula for that; something like losses result when possession is undercut by turnovers [L=P/TO].

What do you do when your stars fumble their opportunities? That meek, mild-manner guy who lives here will probably have more to say about that on Hog Heaven Tuesday or Wednesday.

While, I haven't given up on the Redskins or the season, I'm only watching for entertainment value from this point.

This team just isn't good enough to go deep in the playoffs.
