Contrary to what "the experts" say, the Redskins do have a lot of young potential on their roster.
Injuries are never a good thing, unless it forces washed up veterans to sit down and give youth a shot at full-speed professional football. Last year, injuries brought many players, who would have never had a chance at the 53-man roster, into starting situations on both offense and defense.
For example, if Clinton Portis doesn't injure his groin, Ryan Torain doesn't humiliate the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with 114 yards in the first quarter. Thanks to the poor play of "over-the-hill" Joey Galloway, Anthony Armstrong stepped into the starting role and turned in a season performance that more-than-rivaled that of first-round pick Dez Bryant. Brandon Banks needs no introduction, and was by far the biggest surprise on the roster.
There are young players on both offense and defense that could see more action next year, but which one of these players will seize the opportunity and breakout in 2011?
