On the Redskins' worst-to-first chances - NFC East Blog - ESPN
They were 5-11 last year, but that record only put them four games behind the division-champion New York Giants, who were 9-7 (and lost both of their head-to-head matchups against the Redskins, incidentally). Looking at it that way, the Redskins have the shortest distance to travel from worst to first. The Bucs were nine games out of first place, the Rams 11 and the Vikings 12.

Usually when I do a "getting to know" feature on a local player, it’s someone who has just come to town as a rookie or free agent.
