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.


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


Indeed! If we can do well in the draft a snag a few gems we will be on our way.

+1 - VERY PLEASANTLY surprised ... :lol:

- a healthy Fred Davis trying to get a 'payday' with his next contract - here or, anywhere in the NFL

- a healthy set of WRs with a new version of the read option offense to take advantage of RG3's speed, arm and EVERYTHING that he learned from his first year in the NFL

we should have NO TROUBLE being in the top 5 offense category again this coming season :lol:
RG3 is now learning how to play QB in the NFL - Mike & Kyle did not help with the transition

Jay & Sean are going to make it happen ... "the things we’re doing are things he’s comfortable with & complement his strengths"

Fred Davis - TE - Redskins

Fred Davis (Achilles') has shown "no inkling of soreness" in training camp.

Barring a setback, Davis already appears game ready. It's an impressive comeback for a player who went down just nine months ago, and the latest indication that Achilles' injuries are not as career-threatening as they once were. Davis is a middle-of-the-road TE2.

That is good news thanks!

What's the "middle of the road TE2" stuff? Fantasy football?

Fred Davis - TE - Redskins

Fred Davis (Achilles') reiterated Wednesday that he's "full-go" for camp.

"This is day six now and I haven’t had any pain in it," Davis claimed. "I’ve been going full-go, blocking, running routes, cutting. I feel really good." Fantasy players may still have Davis' excellent 2011 in their heads, but coming off major injury in an offense he might not fit, he should be treated as a TE2.

I like that he did not wait long for surgery. I broke my left wrist, had surgery, therefore wore no cast, and was playing guitar the next day. I was sore but I could play. It was great rehab too.

Fred Davis - TE - Redskins

Fred Davis "continues to look good" at practice.

Davis' recovery from an October Achilles' rupture has been as smooth as it gets. He's expected to play roughly a half in Monday's second preseason game. Davis was on pace for a 54/742/0 line when he went down in Week 7 last year. He's a TE2 with a dash of upside this time around.
