As s long time Redskins fan (and a season ticket holder for quite a few years) it continues to amaze and dismay me how since "The Danny" (team owner Dan Snyder ) arrived that each year the Redskins have found a way to mess up the draft and other player personnel decisions. I wish we could fire the owner but we can't. WE NEED A GENERAL MANAGER! "The Danny" needs to step back and get a professional football GM. Until that time we will continue to be the laughing stock of the league. Howver, if things are only measured by the financial aspects than "The Danny" is man.

Well it would be foolish of me to argue agaunst that. However, I think if we can just get the right offensive scheme this year, then we'll be right in the hunt. Because we aren't gonna have the injury problems this year on defense, and the addition of laron landry is really gonna help our deep ball problem. And I don't think we have a "weapons" problem as far as our offense goes. In fact i think we can trade some in order to better our other areas. Plus, who's there in the NFC that's really a dominating force enough to stop us?

Hey Myself.....well...You never can count out any injury situation..ie:Brian Cashman...and you still don't have a quarterback....you have 5 good receivers that never have monster games and also you can't stop the run...There are 3 other teams in the NFC East that are better than the Redskins right now. You drafted the best Safety out there and have maybe the best d-backs in the East, but they are going to be exhausted stuffing the line.YOU NEED A GM man, the Redskins don't even have a draft day plan....I'm not bashing your team because its loaded with talent, its just not organized well.Get Joe G to say good-by or put him as the GM.

Well I think we're well set in our QB situation with Jason Campbell, and he does have all the weapons he needs to get the job done. On defense our deep ball problem should be taken care of pretty well with landry complementing taylor, and at linebacker I think London Fletcher is really gonna help out and Dallas Sartz should really help bring pressure on the QB. As far as Gibbs goes, he's the guy that gut us in the second round of the playoffs just 2 years ago, so i don't buy that "the game has passed him buy" BS. I think the problem on offense last year was Al Saunders and his scheme that wouldn't flow, but hopefully it'll work this upcoming season. And as far as I'm concerned, the cowboys are really the only better team than us going into this season, in the NFC East. The Giants have lost their most valuable player by far, and Tom Coughlin has no discipline over that team. And the Eagles are just screwed. Stallworth's gone, they took feeley instead of Garcia for when McNabb gets injured again, and they're just the Eagles. The bottom line is that I think people forget how good the Redskins were 2 years ago and they don't realize that our current team is probably even better.

It's always good to have hope. But the skins will never be consistently good until they stop giving away draft picks, rebuild with youth, and avoid overrated high priced free agents

Man you're optimistic about your 5-11 squad! Campbell still has alot to learn, your GM (HA-HA) hasn't shored up your defensive or offensive lines, and your CBs are average...you really expect this team to compete in the NFC East? Only when your owner realizes that you cannot buy a ring and you have BUILD thru the draft will your Skins will truly be a factor in the East again.

wow...I have to give Myself credit..he is a good and loyal fan....keep staying positive Myself.....Mcnabb isn't hurt, The Giants are set up completely diff and better this season than last and its not 2 years ago....and really..I mean really...you don't have a quarterback. Dallas is back and made it to the semis last year...c'mon man you don't have anybody on tht D-line who can tackle Brandon Jacobs,Westbrook and 2 decent Dallas backs....stay loyal dude.

I'm optimistic anout my 5-11 squad because they're the same team that went to the second round of the playoffs the year before, and i think it's Al Saunders who goofed it all up.

McNabb will get hurt like he always does, and if he doesn't, we know he's not capable of finishing and getting a SuperBowl ring. Eli is the most overrated QB in the entire NFL, and he'll never take that team far. But the Cowboys I am concerned about. As for our quarterback, yes, we have one. He's got an arm which can match up with almost anybody's, he's big, tall, mobile, and good in the pocket, and he's still young. I figure he'll go through another learning curve this season, but by the end he's gonna be a clutch player. As for our D-line, no they're not the greatest, but that being said, last year they played a style that was based on defending the pass and helping coverage, rather than filling holes in the O-line and getting to the quarterback. Do I think that was a good idea? No, i think it was stupid, but nonetheless, that's how they played and that's how Greg wanted it. This year should be different and i expect much much more pressure on quarterbacks. Maybe I have wishful thinking, but I think my opinions are reasonable.

good analysis Myself except 18 million people disagree on your quarterback situation. You have win now players with a get better in a couple years QB. If I was a betting man and you certainly are misinformed about NY and Philly ,I would bet that you win only 2 games against NFC East teams and that is stretching it. BUT!!Myself, you are a loyal fan.... I have to tell you that Eli isn't rated high enough to be overrated and he will have a much better year than last. GO HOGS...listen to Mark May the old Hog...read his columns..you will finally get it.

your right Jason...the Cowboys should be on top....SHOULD BE...lets see. Wade Phillips isn't the second coming of Vince Lombardi, and I can't wait for more T.O. bullsht, but if they can stay on course, they will be very strong. whats your take on all the Redskin stuff up above?

What you seem to forget is that your DEFENSE (5th ranked, maybe) made you guys good enough to make it to the 2nd round that year, not the offense. Last year they were one of the worst defenses in the NFL (hence the 5-11 record). So now you have a mediocre offense with a young QB and a decent defense (on paper) but that's not enough to win the the NFC East, IMO.

Gary , I think you hit the nail on the head about the Redskins needing a good GM. Snyder thinks he can buy a superbowl ala George Steinbrener. The track records for free agency over the years I believe show, that a high percentage of free agents don't pan out with their new teams. The Skins should build through the draft, I don't know if that will happen with Snyder as the owner. Regarding the dominating team in the NFC I would have to say it is the Eagles.( although I hate to admit it being a Giants fan) THey are the only team in the NFC with an established qb and have won the division the most since 2000 . ELi still has to prove he can be consistant, Tony Romo still has to play a full season as a Cowboy, and Cambell has to prove he is good QB.But before Eagle fans get to crazy they still have to prove to the NFC they can get too and win the big one. The question should be which division in the NFC is the toughest? I don't know if the NFC EAst is right now. I see teams like the Saints , 49ers, maybe even the Cards making the most noise this year in the NFC.P.S. I have a feeling the Bears might have a semi meltdown this year after the superbowl plus they have a few player issues as well.

Well i don't know how I'm misinformed about the Eagles and the Giants. After all I call as i see it. And, from what I've seen, this Eagles team is the ultimate choking team that the NFL has ever seen-perhaps the with exception of the 90's Buffalo Bills. They're always good, but not good enough, always a contender, but never a champion, and yet every year i have to hear the utter bull$#!* that they are going to pull it off. Well I'm not that naive. And the Giants-oh my God the pathetic Giants-every time they get the chance to prove they're better than the Eagles they get so scared they might as well go to the middle of the field, squat, and take a Giant $#!*. It's a pathetic sight really. I had absolutely no faith in them to beat the Eagles in the playoffs last year, and rightfully so. But then I also new that the Eagles weren't capable of beating the Saints-2 predictions that did in fact earn me some money, being a betting man myself. So you see I'm not really misinformed about these two teams, and I believe both will be worse this coming season.
Now as far as our QB situation goes, I really couldn't care less if 18 million disagree with me as long as I'm right.
