The audio didn't work at all for the guy opposing, but I didn't need to hear what he said to know the Redskins won't win the NFC East.
Will they be better and competitive? Definitely. Will they have a chance at a wild card spot? You bet.
But you're talking about an "all-star" backfield filled with slowing down runners that are all either over 30, or played 2009 like they WERE 30+.
Willie Parker, Larry Johnson, and C Portis is not an all-star backfield. It's a disaster waiting to happen.
ESPECIALLY if the offensive line doesn't get fixed. I love Portis and Shanahan, so I'm pulling for this to be true, but too much has to come together in one year in a continuously tough division.
The Giants will be back. The Cowboys proved their talent can and will translate into great success. And even with a switch at QB, the Eagles should still compete for a wild card.
Too many questions and not enough answers to give the Redskins (4-12 in 2009) a jump to the top of the division.
Redskins have as good of a chance as anyone else. Giants still have a lot of questions, Eagles have lost a lot of leadership over the last 2 offseasons and are a very young team. You never know what you are getting with Dallas. Isn't DC the most stable situation currently?
i hope my volume worked this time if not I deserve the loss with no argument, though the skins wont win!
I still don't think the Redskins win the East, but I changed my vote because the argument was better on the other side. I definitely agree with the fact that the Skins CAN win the division, but in the end they just won't. Still, Grogan gets the nod here.
When mid-season comes Portis and Johnson won't be seeing eye to eye, their ego's will get the better of them. If one is shopped I wouldn't be the least bit shocked.
Donovan's gonna just walk in and take this team to the division champs when he couldn't do it with a better Eagles team last year? I think he makes this team worse if anything, I don't think he has it left ( i could easily be wrong) and its 1 and out with the Skins.
Skin fans better PRAY Owens doesn't sign with them like some rumors suggest, that would be the end! I doubt that happens.
This will be the year the NFC East becomes fairly weak imo. I think the Giants will push for a wild card depending on how well Eli can play. The Eagles are a toss up, who knows how the fend out. I believe the Cowboys are a lock. If they can keep Austin they'll have a fairly strong WR core with a 3 RB's that can give any team fits. Felix Jones is going to have a HUGE season which should let Romo set up the play action nicely. Barber's also a bitch to take down and Choice is a young stud!
The Redskins will be a much improved team. I'm sick of hearing people talk about last season they went 4-12 and therefore they will suck again! That is pure Bull$hit if you ask me. Look at the improvements the team has made since the end of last season, Mike Shanahan is a big upgrade over Jim Zorn and QB Donovan McNabb is an upgrade over Jason Campbell. The biggest change is the atmosphere surrounding the team. Players can't run to Dan Snyder if they don't feel like practicing and believe me that crap happened in the past. It's Shanahan's way or the highway. We don't have to take a backseat to anyone in the division and I feel we have just as good a chance as anybody to win the NFC East!
