Let’s take a look at the numbers:
Last season – 4-12 SU, 6-8-2 ATS
Projection this season – 6-10 (fourth in AFC North)
In Washington, it’s all about the O. Not that O. The offense, where a team desperate to move the ball has turned the game over to a veteran good-but-not-great quarterback of who the Eagles thought so little that they traded him within their division. The last time that happened, the Patriots dispatched Drew Bledsoe to the Bills, and that worked out great (for the Patriots, anyway).
The Shanahan/McNabb Combine inherits a team that scored an average of six points a game less than the second-weakest offensive team in the division and whose only victories last season came against teams that finished either .500 (Denver) or well below .500 (St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Oakland).
There are questions about an offense built around a quarterback whose best days are in the rear view mirror and a set of running backs (Clinton Portis, Larry Johnson and Willie Parker) whose effectiveness depend on touching the ball 20-25 times a game.
After bitching and moaning about the Skins’ switch to a 3-4 defense which de-emphasizes line play and sacks, Haynesworth now says he is fine with the move away from defensive end to nose tackle. All the team had to do was explain it to him slowly and maybe suggest that his paycheck depends of playing and shutting up.
If Fat Albert is half-motivated about taking on double-teams and freeing up linebackers to make plays, that’s good news for the LBs – London Fletcher, Rocky McIntosh, Brian Orakpo and Andrew Carter.
The secondary is decent but nowhere near as good as Redskins Nation thinks it is – DeAngelo Hall sucked up Dan Snyder’s money but has been only OK, and Carlos Rodgers makes too many mistakes.
This may be the year that safeties LaRon Landy and Kareem Moore take a major step up.
THE WAY IT LOOKS NOW – No favors were done this team by the schedule-maker as the Skins have Dallas, Houston, Green Bay and Indianapolis among their first six games. Nasty stuff, especially when a slow start will bring heat on McNabb.
Washington has always tried to fix things quickly by signing free agents to huge contracts and trading away draft picks.
It hasn’t worked in the past, and the present doesn’t look too promising, either.
