The Washington Redskins are back in action at FedEx Field for their NFL season opener against the NY Giants!
In their second year with head coach Mike Shanahan after going 6-10 last season , the Redskins are pushing for their first winning season since 2007. Over the course of a productive off-season, the Skins have added many significant players to the lineup, especially on defense:
In (offense): WRs Donte’ Stallworth, Jabar Gaffney, and RB Tim Hightower
In (defense): DT Barry Cofield, DE Stephen Bowen, CB Josh Wilson, and safety O.J. Atogwe
Out: Donovan McNabb, Albert Haynesworth, and Clinton Portis
Re-Signed: Santana Moss
“We don’t need people saying we’re the best right now, but when it’s all said and done, I really feel like this team’s gonna win the East.”
— QB Rex Grossman —
In spite of Grossman’s optimism, the Redskins still ranked in at #29 in ESPN’s pre-season power rankings. There are many questions surrounding how the Redskins will fare this year, including:
- Will the Skins prove ESPN wrong?
- Where will coach Mike Shanahan take the Skins in his second year with the team?
- Who will win the QB battle: an established Rex Grossman or the hopeful John Beck ?
- Is the defense going to step up after its many off-season changes?
- Are they capable of winning the NFC East for the first time since 1999?
As the Skins are tossing the pigskin and you’re passing the guacamole, these questions will soon be answered!
