CHANGE, HOPE and REALISM!
Another offseason is mercifully over, and the preseason starts this Thursday for our Redskins!
We had some moves in Free Agency . . .
Added some players who will contribute in 2012 . . .
WR Pierre Garcon, and WR Josh Morgan
Said goodbye to some who were productive but infuriating . . .
S Laron Landry, LB
Rocky McIntosh, CB Leigh
Said Good Riddance to a couple more . . .
WR Donte Stallworth, QB John Beck)
Pretty much a standard Free Agency period for the Burgundy & Gold. But the REAL change . . . the one that has hope for REAL sustainable improvement . . . THAT change happened at the 2012 Draft in New York when Quarterback Robert Griffin III was selected by the Redskins after the gutsy trade to move up to the second pick! This pick, and the pick 3 rounds later of QB Kirk Cousins, will get us off of the QB Retread merry-go-round we have been on for the last two decades!
The Leadership being shown by this young man since being drafted already has me excited about his potential as a field general, and his physical skills have never been questioned.
The 2012 schedule wonít offer us up
any favors, with 5 of our last 8 games being divisional match-ups, including a
Turkey Day visit to the Cowgirls Turf on the Turnpike in
The changes at
the QB position should fill us all with hope for REAL change for our team going
forward, and make us proud to wear that new #10 jersey all through the week this
season . . . which starts this Thursday night in
