I’m excited about the 2012 Redskins. I’m excited because they actually have the potential to win, and they finally have the players and staff necessary to make this happen. The team is ready to win, I’m ready to see them win, and Robert Griffin III is the man for the job.
I still remember at the beginning of last season, I was similarly excited about the future of the Redskins. I wasn’t too excited about Rex Grossman—he was the big black splotch on the potential that was the 'Skins, but the rest of the team looked promising.
At the end of the disappointing 2011 season, I jokingly told my dad that he played the world’s greatest prank on me by making me such a diehard fan of the Redskins (OK, maybe not much of a joke). Needless to say, I hate being let down by the 'Skins year after year after year…that goes on for a while, I think just saying the last decade or two would suffice.
It's a big statement to say that having a 5-11 record stems completely from having a terrible quarterback. So what was the big problem with Rex Grossman? Is it something that RG3 can do better at?
My gut tells me that he can. Rex Grossman had his, um…let’s say weak spots. If RG3 can capitalize on some of the things that Grossman was inept at, the 'Skins should see some dramatic improvements on offense.
