    Whoa, whoa, whoa. That kind of sensible reason will not fly well in the land of the August Championship!

    It’s the correct way to look at your Redskins heading in to this season though.

    I’m glad you/we (I count myself a Caps fan after 22+ years living in MD) got to experience that championship feeling. You deserve it! Maybe that feeling will come one day again for Redskins fans, but you won’t “deserve” it until that front office starts making more good decisions than head-scratching WTF decisions.

    Best of luck to ye!

    Strange, You can’t use injuries as an excuse but then hedge your season prediction based on whether there are key injuries or not.

    Rub a lamp and make a wish Reed plays 10 games.
    More like starts 9 games is at 70% for 6 games and leaves early in the middle of 2nd quarter in 3 other games due to name your ailment here.

    This may not be “the Redskins year” so to say, but I think it’s hard to say that they’re the dumpster fire that they were in the mid to late 90s, last decade – except for the Gibbs years – and most the Shanahan era except for 2012.

    Crazy as it sounds – aside from not re-signing Cousins after the 2015 season for $20 million a year which McCloughan was against too – the Redskins front office has been building the team and doing things the right way.

    They haven’t been overspending in free agency and they’ve been mostly building through the draft with mostly bargain free agents with the exception of signing Norman – which had McCloughan’s blessing in 2015 – and signing Paul Richardson this offseason.

    So, somewhere between 4 and 11 wins? Way to hedge your bet Steve. Compared to last year this team is basically the same on defense (better in the line, worse in the secondary) and slightly better on offense (better at running back, a wash at quarterback). Unfortunately after starting with a couple of cream puffs their schedule is brutal – thus my own prediction is they will repeat last year’s 7-9 record.
