Former Head Coach Jim Zorn appeared to be a marked man from day one with Washington owner Dan Snyder and after a 4-12 season in 2009, he was let go in favor of veteran coach Mike Shanahan. Shanahan wasted little time in putting his stamp on the team by trading some draft picks to Philadelphia to acquire 11 year veteran quarterback Donovan McNabb.

This new duo in D.C. has raised the expectation level to a whole new high for 2010.

McNabb’s biggest challenge will be to remain healthy for an entire 16 game schedule. In 10 seasons with the Eagles he started every regular season game just four times. If he does go down, Rex Grossman would be the backup which at the very least adds some veteran experience at the position.

When McNabb is throwing the ball, his primary targets will be WR Santana Moss and TE Chris Cooley. Moss led the team in 2009 with 70 receptions for 902 yards. Cooley only played seven games last season due to injury but still caught 29 balls for 332 yards. Another player to watch is rookie WR Anthony Armstrong, who has opened some eyes with his play in the preseason.

The Redskins backfield is crowded to say the least. With RB Clinton Portis still listed as the starter, they added Larry Johnson and Willie Parker for some additional veteran depth.

They also have some good young backs in Ryan Torain and Keiland Williams so it is still unsure how this will all shake out when it is time to trim the rosters for opening day.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Shanahan regime has gotten off to a rocky start with the units best player; DT Albert Haynesworth. Unhappy with the Redskins new 3-4 defensive scheme as well as Shanahan himself, Haynesworth has become a major distraction this preseason.

This situation needs to be rectified in some manner to avoid it from dragging into the regular season as well. Overall, Washington’s defense is solid throughout. In 2009 it was ranked 10th overall and eighth against the pass even with Haynesworth in and out of the lineup due to injuries.

Last season the Redskins were 3-5 at home and 1-7 on the road. Their main problem was an 0-6 record in the division. Against the spread they went 8-8; 2-6 at home and 6-2 on the road.

Looking back at 2009, Washington lost four division games by a combined 20 points and lost to the Saints and the Chargers by a total of six points. If the Redskins can find a way to start winning the close ones, they are not that far off from turning things around.

With a solid core of talent on both sides of the ball and veteran leadership at the quarterback position the Redskins are definitely a team to watch this season.

2010 Prediction: 3rd in the NFC East
Win Total: OVER
