The expectations for the redskins this year were very abysmal this year. Many pundits(Colin Cowherd) had the redskins finishing at 2-14 and several others like one Skip Bayless didn't fare any better. Not only Espn but other networks like the NFL network and sports illustrated had the redskins last in the division as they do every year but in the suck for luck competition. i will now present to you what they saw when they tried to preview the redskins
no qb = 2 wins
First of all, i believe this team is a 10-6 team , before you start trying to confiscate the kool aid , last year this team was terrible however we still put out 6 wins. Had we a decent kicker we would have won that houston game, giants game at the end of last year and the tampa game and then that 6-10 goes to 9-7. Now when these espn analysts looked at the redskins they saw rex grossman and thought this was easy to predict the redskins. rex grossman stinks right? however to be fair donova mcnabb never really was that good in washington to begin with. Even after the offseason accquisitions the networks still didn't believe in us. then we put it on the field in preseason our 2 quarterbacks moved the offense in preseason better than mcnabb did all last season. i believe grossman can thrive in this offense. one thing i noticed is that in this offense the recievers are open with a lot of running room. i believe grossman will still make his mistakes and i don't really care too much , there will be times he turns the ball over but as a team i think they are able t o overcome that. the competition at every position is paying off for the redskins because just take a look at the other teams in our divisions eagles signed all these players, their offense really isn't that much of a juggernaut and their defense looks pretty pedestrian. the cowboys lost to the jets and and nearly got upset by the 49ers. espn forgot to say while they were worshipping tony romo's statue that the cowboys nearly got beat by the alex smith led 49ers. and the giants they seem to get hurt by anthing and phantom hammies. the redskins have their injuries but seem to be fresh on defense and espn is about to eat some crow
I would like to though give a tip of the cap to michael lombardi because he went against what everybody was saying and picked the redskins to win the division. he probably knew what that he would get ridiculed but so far now he hasn;t been wrong . i hope this team comes out on monday night and delivers the performance a lifetime not like last year though.
P.S remember the last time we played the cowboys on monday night , it is something i will never forget . i hope this can add to my memories
