Morning Commute: For The Redskins, A Win Hides A Poor Performance

A Win is a win is a win is a win. That's what I always say. At the end of the day, that is the most important statistic and the only one that truly matters. It doesn't really matter how well you play as long as you play well enough to earn a W. Even when a win hides a poor performance like it did yesterday for the Redskins, a win is still a win.

So what if Donovan McNabb only finished the game with a quarterback rating of just about 82 and finished with 20 in completions. So what if it took Graham Gano two tries to win the game from just about the same distance; a win is still a win.

And who cares if the Skins were facing the Titans third string quarterback named Rusty who was playing in his first game after being a sixth round pick earlier this year for some of the contest. Or if the Redskins only scored 12 points in what amounted to almost sixty minutes of football over the last three quarters and overtime; a win is still a win.

It doesn't matter how the Redskins played yesterday as long as they played better than the team that was lining up across the line of scrimmage from them. As hard as it was to watch and as poorly as the Redskins played, they still played well enough to win. It might not have been good enough to beat the other 30 teams in the NFL on that particular day, but it was good enough to play the Titans who were playing even worse than the Skins yesterday. And that's all that matters.
