I think of continuity based upon all the returning starters. The entire offense is returning, and the defense remains intact.
After a successful 10-6 campaign last season, it’s been other NFC rivals who have been receiving high praise; the San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons are all considered Super Bowl-worthy—and rightfully so.
But what are we to expect of this Redskins team? Are they going to take a step back and become mediocre? Are they going to take the success of a division title and continue to grow as a franchise?
How long is Mike Shanahan going to be at the helm? Will Kyle Shanahan take his job or get an opportunity elsewhere?
Are the rookies going to make an impact?
The point is, there are a lot of questions that remain to be answered. As of now, all we have are expectations.
Those expectations will be focused on all projected starters.
