2011 Redskins Outlook

I'm back.

Not really, but I am here to talk about the 2011 Redskins outlook. There are some major problems with this team, but I see the fact that Snyder has cap room that he can't spend (one major plus to the Lockout) and the fact that Allen and Shanahan were able to squeeze 12 picks out of the draft as two major signs of a (possible) change in the organizational structure. There is no possible way to know at this point; hell, Snyder might go crazy like a little kid with mom's money all alone in the candy store the second free agency opens up.

But, maybe not. What if Snyder really has given up his spending ways, or at least the ones where he outbids himself for past-prime players? What if the Allen-Shanahan combo really do have his ear? What if, and I know this is a stretch, the 2011 Redskins will enter the 2011 season with, brace yourself, cap room?

I know, won't happen. But with 12 draft picks to sign and any number of UFAs available, in addition to a young-ish roster after the FAs-to-be leave, what if the Redskins really are different?

Maybe I'm just drinking the Kool-Aid. Maybe the lockout has me so distracted that I forgot how Snyder is. Maybe I'm just flat wrong.

But I'm telling you there's a chance...

Help me out, click the link. Or don't. Either way, HTTR.
