Yeah, the way I think about it is... We didn't see the full potential of this offense last year for a few reasons, some obvious others not so...

1. Injury. Garcon missed the 1st 6 games or so. Davis was gone after the 1st six games. Morgan was injured, having never fully healed from his time in SanFran. Helu.
2. Rookie year. Both RGIII and Alfred.
3. Natural Progression.
A. Are line will had a solid year of playing together. They will improve.
B. Our WR's will have another year of comfort, they were essentially rookies (Garcon, Morgan)


The only area of stagnation that I anticipate is RGIII's ability to operate out of "normal" drop. I'm sure that was on their to-do list this offseason.

Really? Im curious now, I'll have to look at the game film again to see if that's true.

Thanks for carrying that line of thought out... I had wanted to, but got distracted... I absolutely agree with all points.

... though, I think the drop is one of the areas that he will be cleared to start working on early... Improvising when the pocket blows up, he already knows how to do! :twisted:

Well written. And I will add. We still have the draft.

Definitely brother, and a rather easy draft at this point (not that I'm trying to get ahead of myself).

I was always thinking 2014 would be our dangerous year, now I think there's a high change its going to be 2013. Never doubted our ability to win the NFC East again, but I think we'll go deeper into the playoffs.

Here's an awesome 2012 highlight video I found on youtube...think we can all take a deep breathe now and enjoy who we were last year, and who we are & will be this year:

Think about how many of those games we would have won in the first half of
the season had both Garcon AND Davis been active... our losses have been minimal, and it's looking like we are going to address the secondary...

Color me optimistic for a deep run in '13.

I saw McShay's two round draft yesterday and it had the Skins taking a TE in the 2d round, I guess anticipating that Davis wasn't back. That just goes to show you how big this re-signing was. It would suck IMO to be using a 2d round pick on a TE this year.


Even without Davis back, that pick prediction from McShay was idiotic. There were at least 2 safeties and 1 CB, can't think of names right now, that would be awesome for us that he had still available.


I didn't look into it that deeply, but I don't doubt what you're saying.

McShay clearly doesn't consider actually evaluating team needs an important criteria...

Seriously? I love Coooooley as much as the next guy, but Fred Davis has a much higher ceiling then CC could have ever hoped for. His last 2 season's , the games he played, he put up top tier TE numbers. If he has the year he's capable of, then we got the season at a discount and he earns a fat pay day. If not, hes washed up we cut him. Either way its a good move.

So glad to see Davis back. Now just hope he'll stay healthy all year and play. I feel real confident heading into the season with this roster. Just add a couple more secondary spots and some depth through the draft and we'll be a young team to mess with. HTTR!

It saddens me that Cooley was wasted during his tenure. A great player, a great person, a great heart... I feel for him, to have his loyalty betray him. I wish he could have went somewhere else to have had an enjoyable career. I say that not as a fan but as another person.

It kills me why people denote the fact that Cooley was in fact a top five TE for several years. He had the numbers to prove it.
Davis on the other could have had the numbers in 2011 but couldn't finish the season because he was suspended. He was on a roll last year when until he ripped his Achilles tendon.

Cooley was a top five TE, Davis could be. When Cooley was in his prime, Davis couldn't sniff the starting roll.
