Mailbag: Refreshingly Competent Offense Edition

You had questions, I had answers. Let’s get to it.

I’ve been reading comments that there are some concerns on the defense. I was pretty happy Saturday night with the defense. Is this some rose colored glasses because of the atrocity that was the defense last year?- Dawgmanic

You might be remembering last year’s defense less fondly than it deserved. Washington gave up an average of 22.7 points per game in 2021. They finished 45th in defensive SP+. The atrocity was the offense not the defense even though the defense slipped from the standards that had been set during Coach Petersen’s tenure.
