What a difference a year or two makes at Redskins Park. In Mike Shanahan’s first year at the helm, we had players like Donovan McNabb, Clinton Portis, Artis Hicks, Casey Rabach and Joey Galloway starting on offense. On defense we had Kedric Golston, Ma’ake Kemoeatu, Andre Carter and Kareem Moore starting on defense.
Incredibly, since the 2010 season, only six starters have the same role: Santana Moss (who probably isn’t even starting, but I’m still putting him in here), Trent Williams, Adam Carriker, Brian Orakpo, London Fletcher and DeAngelo Hall.
The point that I am trying to make is this is Mike Shanahan’s team. The 53-man roster has been handpicked from the coaching staff that is supposed to bring back a franchise that has been irrelevant for 20 years.
For those who are interested in how players were acquired, where and when they were drafted, as well as some additional information, then this is the article for you.
Below is a complete dissection of this year’s Washington Redskins.
