+1 - especially when the strength of schedule is based on last year - we are not going to be the 'same' as last year and neither are the teams we are going to play this season ... :lol:

many teams will not be able to 'upgrade' from what they had or as much as they'd like -...

this Redskins franchise is poised to become a very consistent group that should be a playoff contender each season - I'm excited to see them play again

Haha, would be nice. I can see it as long as nothing really stupid happens.

RG3 will be better and a more effective QB than he was last season ...

Alfred Morris will be a better RB and a more effective RB than he was last season ...

The Redskins defense AND offense will be better than last season ...



1: the knee is going to be a big ?. it appears everything is going as planned or even better, but he is still thin.

2: I have no clue how Morris could get any better than he was last year. Literally, how could he get better? If he improved any more he would be reaching Peterson status.

3. I think Defensively it is a given. Offensively is still up in the air. No one on earth can gaurantee this because there are still too many ?s. But if it makes you feel better to say it, then by all means do it!!
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.

RG3 will be fine - the only question about his knee is how much better will it be than it was - NOT if it's going to be an issue or not

BOTH Alfred Morris and RG3 are going to be a lot better than they were because:

they've had a year of experience

the O line - this was considered a HUGE concern last August - they will be MUCH better this season

the offense will be further adjusted by Mike & Kyle to take better advantage of the weapons we have


The defense is going to get an awful lot of attention in the coming months - and they have some really good players coming off injuries

and

this franchise is going to 'benefit' by having NFL players really wanting to be a part of all that is happening here

I'll quote you on this ROTFALMAO


Isn't Pitt about 30 million over the cap right now? Changes will need to be made.

That said, Pitt does have one of the best coaches and owners in the NFL, so there is that......

8 million thank you. Considering Wallace and Mendy will be gone, and Harrison and Troy will cut their pay I say we will be fine.

Still meshing. If all works well with the new HB we will be on track.
