On the heels of yet another loss, this time to the San Francisco 49ers, the now 3-8 Washington Redskins have little else to look forward to but the 2014 offseason. Mike Shanahan may feel his seat getting a little toasty in the weeks to come, even with another year left on his deal.
With no hope to make the playoffs, the Redskins can't enter evaluation mode and set themselves up to have a successful offseason.
Success for the Redskins, at least during the offseason, once meant throwing money at a collection of big names, failing to win games and repeating.
Now, with desperation setting in, cap room to spare and a solid collection of draft picks, the 'Skins can properly revamp to recapture their late-2012 form that led them to their first division crown since 1999.
