The Redskins Were Not So Good in the 2000′s

2010 starts a new decade for the Washington Redskins, hopefully the next 10 years will be better than the previous 10…or 20 years. From 1982-1991 the Redskins were a dynasty, winning 3 Super Bowls. From 1992-2009…not so much. In fact, the Redskins had 2 winning seasons in the 2000’s and have had only 5 winning campaigns in the last 18. Here’s a statistical look at how the 2000’s panned out.

70 Wins 90 Losses
18.1 PPG
Offensive Ranking: PTS = 24th YDS = 19th
Defensive Ranking: PTS = 14th YDS = 11

The Redskins finished 20 games below .500. 2 playoff appearances resulted in a 2-2 record. Spurrier and Zorn were both 12-20, Gibbs went 30-34 and Schottenheimer was 8-8. The offense consistently ranked in the bottom half or bottom third in the league. The defense was better, led by D-coordinators like Gregg Williams and Marvin Lewis. The Redskins haven’t had a top-10 offense since 1999.
