Without getting too excited over a preseason game, I like what I saw out of the Redskins on Friday.
The offense looked a lot better than I expected, and of course, with one more year under his belt, Rex Grossman looks really comfortable in Kyle Shannahan's offense.
The starting offensive and defensive lines look like they've improved over last season, and even if it's only a preseason game, that is a huge plus.
However, the offense still left some points out there on the field. Ignoring the two missed field goals, they should have gotten six points on that first drive. It was way too reminiscent of the last decade to see the Skins march down the field just to get bogged down in the red zone.
Running lanes disappeared and receivers couldn't get open. Outside of Gano upping his field goal percentage, if Rex Grossman really thinks this team can win the NFC East, it will come down to scoring six points in the red zone as opposed to three.
Overall, the Redskins get a "B+" for this outing. There are things they need to work on, but overall, I was impressed with their first outing. They looked like a team with a plan instead of a bunch of guys tossing the football around.
