Redskins’ Offense ‘Quietly Dangerous’

Posted by Andrew Walker on September 27, 2012 – 5:03 pm

Through the first three games of the 2012 NFL season, your Washington Redskins have the No. 1-scoring offense in the entire league.

Credit certainly goes to the coaching staff for finding ways to utilize the offensive players’ talents — starting with rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III — and for putting points on the scoreboard.

Though the defense hasn’t yet reached the level of consistency it would like and become a top-10 NFL unit, there’s definitely people taking notice of the improved Redskins’ offense attack.

In his weekly power rankings article, NFL.com Around The League editor Gregg Rosenthal this week ranked the NFL’s offenses, and he put the Redskins at the “quietly dangerous” level.

“Quietly dangerous” is the third-highest ranking Rosenthal gives the various offenses. Here’s where the entire league falls, according to Rosenthal:

“Top Shelf:” Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots, Houston Texans, Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants

“Should Get Better:” Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints

“Quietly Dangerous:” San Francisco 49ers, Washington Redskins and Cincinnati Bengals

“Not Playing To Potential:” Detroit Lions, Carolina Panthers and Philadelphia Eagles

“Quarterbacks Running For Life:” Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys

“Middle Of The Pack:” Denver Broncos, San Diego Chargers and Buffalo Bills

“Mediocre:” Minnesota Vikings, Chicago Bears, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks, Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans

“Bottom Shelf:” Tampa Bay Buccaneers*, Arizona Cardinals, New York Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars and Cleveland Browns

* The Redskins travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers on Sunday. The Buccaneers have the league’s worst-rated offense.

CHIME IN: What do you think of where the Redskins’ offense falls in these rankings? Should they be higher? Lower? Feel free to comment below.

    shanahan do the defense a favor trade d.hall he’s a bum. he does nothing to help our team out. he can’t even tackle, he gets burnt on the balls thrown his way every time, look at the saints game he had trouble sacking drew brees. and the bengals game he washolding a.j. greens hips as he pulled hall down the field an extra 2 to 3 yards. please try and do something at least get some kind of draft pick if you can’t get an elite corner. hail skins.

    I just hope we don’t sleep on the Bucs. Let’s take them seriously and play like we want to win.

    I’ve believe we will get it together, uts easy for us as fans to sit on out butts and complain on what you guys should and should not do on a play. I’ve been a fan since my son got me into the game in 1988 and i’v love the Skins ever since, It takes a whote tiea, effrd to win games. I feel we got one of the best teams in a very lon time. Morris is a regular steam rooler and RG # is just getting started once the players can protect him and give him the time he nedds to do his thing there is nothing to stops us. Just remember you got to protect the QB and everything will come together. We got a lot of guys that will step up and supriise us this season . linda from VA

    I think this is a little misleading. We only put up 3 in the first half last week and didn’t score until the Bengals’ defense started playing back. Our 40 point performance against the Saints is starting to look less impressive after the Saints are still winless. We need to prove that we can throw the ball without any gimmicks to be considered as good.
