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 Torrance . . . and

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 Arlington.  The front half of the schedule is more forgiving, however, giving us a chance to be competitive throughout the year, and possibly be playing for something come December.

 

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 Western New York as we take on the Buffalo Bills. The Billsí defensive additions wonít play much, but they are still a team on the rise, and will be a nice bunch of guys for the Skins to hit after a week of pounding on each other!
