Rex Grossman and John Beck are no longer the fantastic Shanahan quarterback duo. Instead, Washington decided to go all-in on Robert Griffin III. The bold move to give away picks in return for one of the most heralded draft prospects in recent memory should bother no one.
If Griffin is a lights-out quarterback, no one will even remember what they gave up to get him. He shouldn't have a problem succeeding—he is the total package, but he will need help from the defense. Jonathan Goff and Cedric Griffin were low-key signings with big-time potential, as both players have been successful in past stops.
Expect Washington to struggle, even with a new quarterback. It just isn't as talented as other teams yet, and it has a few pretty tough stretches in its schedule.
Weeks 11, 12, 13 and 14 are sure to cause fits, as it plays the Eagles, Cowboys, Giants and Ravens, all in a row. During the first eight weeks of the season, the Redskins only have three home games.
