Addressed the issues? Yes. Fixed the issues? No. Unless you buy a high 1st round draft pick like Chris Samuels you're not going to have a rookie contributor that is not in some way a liability until he adjusts to the NFL. But the additions on the O-line will hopefully pay dividends over the next 3-5 years.

I'd put this Redskins team in the bottom third of the league right now. I see plenty of reasons for optimism that the team could perform like it did in 2012, but that would be more of a surprise to me than an expectation.

Realistically our draftees may not be able to contribute right away. I am crossing my fingers that our rookies can start right away.

We just have to wait and see. As a fan I am always optimistic about most additions to the team especially draft picks.

I just hope we found ourselves a Jacoby or Grimm in this bunch. Who knows probably not but I always like to fantasize that we did. Thats what pre season is for. We can get the harsh realities if they happen to come about. But for now I like to think we have found ourselves our future pro Bowlers.

I was cautiously optimistic but there are many here who predict we're at least a top 10 offense and possibly a top 5

that makes me feel a lot better :twisted:
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming

Most fans consider the team they root for the best.. and this is the time of season for everyone to be optimistic. . That said, how do you enjoy your crow? The offense will most certainly be top ten in the league.. there are less then 10 teams with equal weapons and few to none with more. Bank on it!

I've been following ProfootballTalk's Pre-Season Power Rankings the past few days and was surprised they've made it from #32 to #27 without listing the Redskins so far (most of the lazy preseason rankings I bet will land us at like #30.):

32. Raiders
31. Dolphins
30. Titans
29. Jaguars
28. Bills
27. Vikings

What do you think? Will we be #26 tomorrow? Or did we gain a little more respect with our draft and DJax? Do you think we'll be the lowest ranked team in the NFC East?



I would rank the RedSkids 33rd

NEWS FLASH - The Redskins offense last season was a top 10 offense (#9) - I think we can be better than that [-X

predicting that we're going to be a top 5 offense AT THIS TIME is just wishful thinking IMO

my concern is only that the O line was not very good despite the ranking and we'll need time to get that fixed



I'm most likely a bigger fan of the Redskins than you :twisted:

Let me try to keep this forum appropriate since apparently you want to act like a female dog and talk smack today...
You make a snide remark directed at those that predict top ten or better... then you realize we already are a top ten O with only Garcon at wr... with a healthy rgiii and our additions you really don't think we can climb 4 spots?? Then you have the balls (or lack there of) to question MY fandom?!
We've all made some silly posts- some more than others :ahem:, but seriously you've out done yourself man. We can take the gloves off in smack if you like cuz I'm not gonna get into it in here.
Ftr there isn't a level of Redskin fan bigger nor higher then myself and my cowpuke hating family- get real.

Hold on a sec, SkidsJerk has a point. You guys do suck, your o-line is atrocious, and your breath is bad. So I say your O may be about top 30, top 20 in you breathe on them.

Block away SJ.
I could care less. I have one name on there and its because oldskewl is redundant and is just looking for people to go back and forth with.
I've agreed with a lot of your input/posts, laughed at the ridiculousness of others, and disagreed with some too...
Its a cute cop out to play the "sensitive" card after typing a gutless "insult" questioning my support of the team. I'm sure your wife (or what ever) would agree with mine in that we spend waaaay to much time on our Skins, here and elsewhere.
Maybe it was "sensitive" to reply to your boyish school yard insult... with the addition of our new egirl troll I may be a tad defensive and quick to arms- or maybe I always am.

I live and breath Redskins nation, bleed burgundy and gold, and try to contribute as much as I can here w my brothers... and yes I'm optimistic- overly at times. I call it Hope/ Faith.
Its whatever honestly.. I'd support a like and dislike button for posts.. But those rep counters can be a little high schools imo

as I've said - I'm looking forward to seeing the team play under Jay Gruden

I am still concerned that it will take time for RG3 to become the type of QB that Jay wants him to be and for the O line to find better players at RG, C, LG and RT - it looks like Kory might be a decent center but it's going to take a while for these guys to develop into a good O line

predicting we're going to be a top 5 offense is just a stretch for me, but we shall see :)

here's an update from TC ... http://espn.go.com/blog/washington-reds ... we-learned
