Making up for a so so defense with a great QB is VERY RARE. I can even argue IT HAS NEVER HAPPENED !!!

When we think of this Patriots dynasty as the greatest of all time – and apologies to fans of the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers, the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it's no longer even a question – the thoughts tend to go toward the brilliance of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, and how that relationship has been the single key. And that's true. But I'm not sure, based purely on skill set, that Brady is a demonstrably better quarterback than, say, Aaron Rodgers. And yet Rodgers' run with the Packers has been stunted through an inconsistent at best, and often awful, defense, while Brady's run with the Patriots has been propped up by the longest run of consistent defense in NFL history. It's the most underrated part of this Patriots run. Perhaps it will end with defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, who has worked with Patriots defensive players for more than a decade, departing the franchise.
Nobody really expects the Redskins to do well - 8 wins is a winning season with Dan Snyder
Since 1999, 19 seasons 132-171-1 - this is an average of less than 7 wins per season :shock:

I'm with Darth and welch - I hope that we get some guys in the FO that understand how to build a franchise and especially find a way to put together a decent defense here

I understand that we have a huge issue with QB but to trade away a very young, high character, really good CB is just really dumb

This team is not ready to win the NFC East. Seems to be a 7-9 or, at most, a 9-7 team. 2018 would have been a time to tank, get even better draft choices, and fly.

that's the reality here - each off season we get our hopes up ... we like to evaluate and speculate what might happen without any regard for who is making the decisions here and how for the most part those decisions have been the reason that, since 1999, this franchise has been mediocre at best with some good seasons but certainly not much hope of having a consistently competitive team with these 2 bozos in charge

even the blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and then but this FO has proven to be even worse than that

Redskins fans have gotten used to getting their hopes up and then watching the inevitable take place

The fun part about speculating & predicting what this franchise needs is that even the dumbest fan here has more of a clue about what to do than the 2 guys who are actually making the decisions for the Redskins
