I have to come out on the side of loving a 17 game schedule that shrinks down the # of wasted PREASON games. It should always be ending in an odd number there are no more 8-8 ties where the team had neither a winning or losing record. Still possible with ties mucking it up but that's another area I'd like to see gone, every game has to have a winner in OT.
I do want expanded rosters so more developmental players can be kept signed instead of bouncing back and forth from team, to practice squad, to another team and back again. The Redskins in particular have bee the posterchild of why extra bodies that are familiar with your system are needed. TWO tightends out on concussion protocols alone last year. I think every starting QB should be required to sit at least one game a year so the backups get some time. 3 or 4 extra slots to be filled with spare bodies, ideally at least two extra offense and two extra defense players active every game. A 3rd string QB requirement and slot that has to stay filled. Official clipboard holder barring medical disaster during a game forcing an emergency suiting up. It's only a matter of time before a team ends up with 2 QB's in concussion protocols at the same time.
Redskins look like a solid 16-0 team to me!!!!!!
Obviously they need a tightend from somewhere, draft or free agency after losing two great ones to concussions last year.
A good corner, two if they can't work things out with no gauranteed money man Dunbar.
I want them to move on from mr Penalty Moses on the O-Line. He killed too many great drives and erased a lot of good plays the last few years.
Another burner at reciever would be nice but the young guys they already have were coming on strong at the end of the season last year.
I hope Chris Thompson finds happiness elsewhere since I don't see him making it onto the rooster with 3 great RB's ahead of him this year. It may very well be looked back on as the greatest back field ever assembled years from now with those 3 active at the same time similar to when they had the 3 best cover corners ever together to stop the greatest show on turf for one year, and they did!!!!! That season may have cost the new offensive coordinators father his job but it's a memory of a lifetime to have witnessed.
This has the feeling of being something very special to look forward to this season. Days until Chase Young!!!!
